          A really satisfying activity not too far from Cairo
          I would like to sincerely thank my guide for this tour, Zizou, and his driver Omar. Concerning the tour, everything was following the planned program : museum of Fayoum, stop to the Karoun lake, and then the waterfalls which seemed to be an absolutely magical and unreal place on this earth. The journey on boat was a happy moment, with a lot of people singing and playing music all around us. The lunch was excellent, and once again, we enjoyed a lot this moment. Zizou was a wonderful guide, explaining very well about the history of each place, and really kind. We loved the complete visite thanks to him. Omar made us laugh all the day and it was really pleasant. Thank you both of you for all the unforgettable memories you brought us that day !

          A great memorable trip to the Giza pyramids and sphinx
          Mohamed Gomaa was the best tour guide! Very helpful and knowledgeable. He picked us up from our Air BnB and was very friendly and warm. He gave us all the information we wanted to know about the pyramids and Egyptian history. He also gave us plenty of time to take in the views and enjoy the experience without being rushed. We got to spend as much time in the great pyramid as we wanted, although the air inside is not the best so you don’t want to stay inside too long

          Tour Cut Short to Visit “Papyrus Museum”
          I really would love to leave a better review because the communication with the company was great and we really liked the transportation and driver. However, we were really disappointed that our half-day tour of the site was cut quite short so that the guide could take us to a “papyrus museum” that was really just a souvenir shop. He wouldn’t let us view the Sphinx up close, rather he rushed us out the gate and said we had a lot of extra time so we would be going to this “museum.” Beyond that, we had booked lunch at a restaurant within the site so once we left, we were not allowed to renter for our lunch. The guide had left us alone by then, so the solution the driver gave us was to bribe a guard to let us back in. We’re happy we saw the pyramids, but we’re not happy we paid for a half-day tour and were rushed through to visit the shop of a friend of our guide.

          Tombs, temples and tasty treats!
          Our three days in Luxor and surrounding areas brought those history books to life! Our guide,Alladin's, knowledge of tombs, temples and the lore around them kept us and our teenage son enthralled and entertained with intriguing stories of the past. He also found us the best falafel we have ever tasted.

          Connecting the dots of Egyptian history with the rest of the world
          With Zizou as a guide the Egyptian Museum was the perfect way to put all we had seen and heard in our time in Egypt into context. Zizou answered all our questions and helped us learn so much about the history of Egypt and surrounding areas. He has a fantastic way of teaching so even teenagers are dying to know more.

          History came to life!
          Zizou was the perfect guide for our first visit to Egypt. His extensive knowledge of the history, language and legends made the pyramids and temples come to life. We had a wonderful time and are already planning to come back and learn more.

          HOSNI is the man!
          We had an AMAZING day with our guide Hosni and his incredible driver Essam We visited amazing churches and Hosnis knowledge of all things Egyptian was so helpful and insightful. We were so impressed that I asked him if he could take us to the Egyptian Museum of Antiquaties and not only did he do that, but he took us to an amazing restaurant on the Nile and got us a ride to our hotel and the airport. I HIGHLY recommend Hosni as a tour guide!

          Tour of Alexandria
          My wife and I took a day tour from Cairo to Alexandria. It was a complete blast! Our driver was safe and the van accommodations were extremely comfortable. Our tour guide Mohamed Gomaa was knowledgeable, patient, funny and gave great information. The sites on the tour are as advertised. We would recommend this tour and Mohamed to anyone.

        Unfortunately, I felt the need to cut my tour with Mahmoud short as I felt so uncomfortable. Although he knows a lot about Cairo, he spent a big portion of our time together talking about my looks instead. I did not realise I was the only one who had booked onto the tour until he showed up at the hotel on his own with a driver.

        I’m a blonde, blue eyed, female solo traveller and would not recommend that other young female travellers to do this tour on their own. Mahmoud would get very close to my face when talking, he would tell me I was beautiful on repeat and he also struggled telling a coherent story in english. I had to google most of the places after visiting them as his stories didn’t make much sense.

        Although I did end the tour early we spent about half an hour just sitting in a restaurant drinking tea rather than seeing more of the city and prior to that we simply drove past some of the most beautiful sights. Please also bear in mind some mosques are closed if you do this tour in the evening.

        I was told by locals there are much better walking tours out there.

        We would highly recommend this tour with Tito to anyone looking to explore Islamic Cairo. The area itself was architecturally beautiful and steeped in history. Tito was an excellent guide and made the history come to life, stopping at each noteworthy building to explain the story behind it. He was extremely knowledgeable, answering any questions we had. He was also very flexible and friendly and let us decide which parts of the tour or area we wanted to focus on. Again, would highly recommend both Tito and the tour to anyone visiting Cairo - thank you Tito!

        Our guide Hussein Elgaby was excellent and we would definitely recommend him! The tour was fantastic and showed us another side of Cairo altogether. We had kids ages 14, 12 and 9 with us and walking around this area of town with Hussein as out guide made us feel at ease. Unfortunately as it was a Friday (and simply because it was so busy) we couldn't enter the mosque but that was ok with us, we had a great experience and I would definitely recommend this to others travelling to Cairo.

        I had a phenomenal time exploring Islamic Cairo and Khan el Khalili with Titto as my guide and highly recommend it to everyone visiting Cairo. From the moment the tour started, Titto's warm and personable approach made me feel welcomed and at ease. His passion for the local history and culture shone through in each fact and every story he shared, turning the walk through the historical areas into a captivating journey through time.

        Titto's knowledge is remarkable. He provided detailed explanation of the historical and cultural significance of each location, offering insights that I could never have gained from guidebooks. What set Titto apart as a guide was not just his expertise but also his ability to engage in enjoyable and meaningful conversations, answer any question thrown his way, and tailor the tour to my interests.

        By the end of the tour, I felt like I had seen the heart and soul of Islamic Cairo and Khan el-Khalili through the eyes of someone who loves and understands the city. It was an immersive cultural experience to remember. Thank you, Titto.

        This was the second tour our family did with Zizou during our trip to Cairo. Zizou is very knowledgeable and goes the extra mile to ensure your tour goes beyond expectations. He is also very patient while answering our thousand and one questions. He always ensured our safety while walking beside vehicles and in the market.

        Again, Zizou personalized our experience by bringing us to reputable vendors for items we wished to purchase and even helped us bargain for the best price. He also managed to convince a papyrus vendor to stay open after hours, so we could buy some papyrus paintings.

        Overall a really good tour. Mo was very informational and knew a lot of information about the mosques we went to. The experience was a little confusing and chaotic at times because we had to pay extra to enter all the mosques, and had to circle back through the market to go to the famous spot to take pictures. The tour was also a lot shorter than the 5 hours advertised. Ours lasted ~2.5 hours. But overall I would recommend this to others.

        Zanetti speaks English well, explained the history of Egypt and Cairo. He helped navigate the market and workshops. He was patient and helpful in every way. Our tour lasted longer than planned as he helped track down goldsmiths on a Sunday which was very appreciated and overall a fun time! Highly recommend Zanetti and Deluxe Travel. The driver Omar was very polite and safe, the Deluxe Travel vans are nice.

        We went for a half day tour according to our own requests and not the standard program, very good that the tour organiser had the flexibility to adapt to individual requests with very short notice. With the help of our excellent guide Zanaty we got an excellent insight on modern history of Egypt. With his support and patience, we also succefully negotiated through the labyrint of the market and got ourselves some really nice Egyptian artifacts

        What a truly awesome tour, all enhanced by my amazing guide Mo and driver Omar, who were both exceptional and first class: very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Both really excelled in ensuring that I got the most out of the walking tour, and the additional visit to the papyrus centre and carpet making centre were really interesting. Mo was so knowledgeable and informative about Egyptian history, and I learn’t so much. I loved this tour and highly recommend it.

        A great introduction to the history and culture of Cairo. Our guide, Zizou, took us to the Mosque of al-Hakim bi-Amr Allah where we learned about its cultural and architectural significance. We also were given a history of Egypt; from its three periods of Egyptian civilization, Greek, Roman and Ottoman as well as French and British influences. . We learned the five principles of the Islamic Faith. We then toured the souk of Khan el-Khalili were Zizou guided us past the many vendors. We enjoyed freshly squeezed sugar cane and mango drinks as well as enjoyed coffee and mint tea. We then took a van to both an Egyptian perfume shop and cotton shop, upon our request. The tour was very flexible. Zizou was great! Even before he told us he had a masters degree (in I believe) Egyptian history, I thought he presented material far better than many of my post graduate training professors. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and proud to share his heritage. Ask for Zizou.
