          Great for a long layover in Cairo
          We had a wonderful time! Very thorough communication with our guide and super easy pick up and drop off from the airport. We started early on Friday so there were very few people around. We felt a little rushed at the pyramids and only got to take pictures with the great pyramid. would have liked to spend a little more time wondering around or seeing the other ones. The camel rides were my kids favorite. They also offer a carriage ride if you’d prefer. The camels looked really healthy and well taken care of. We spent a large portion of the tour be taken to shops, oils, papyrus, jewelry. Tip: despite the shop owner saying you can bring the oils in your carry on you cannot and will make you check it if you have a suitcase to put it in. We ended up using my husbands day bag to check them. Lunch was good with a view overlooking the pyramids. The museum was interesting and our guide was really knowledgeable. We were discouraged from visiting the market though it didn’t look any more intense than ones we’ve seen in other parts of the worlds like Istanbul, Delhi, or Beijing. For a long layover and ease of getting around and hitting the highlights of the city this was a perfect choice.

          Thanks for your professionalism and dedication Mimo
          I initially shared my disappointment in a recent tour experience with Tree of Life Day Tours, where the promised itinerary did not align with the delivered tour. However, I'm pleased to update my feedback to highlight the positive resolution that ensued. Following my complaint, tour guide Mimo from Tree of Life Day Tours proactively reached out to address my concerns. He not only acknowledged the discrepancies but also provided a partial refund as a gesture of goodwill. Moreover, Mimo assured me that steps were being taken to update the itinerary, preventing future customers from encountering a similar discrepancy. I appreciate Mimo's responsiveness and commitment to resolving the issue. While the initial experience fell short of expectations, the proactive steps taken to address the concerns have positively influenced my perception. It's encouraging to witness a commitment to customer satisfaction and continuous improvement within the tour company.

          Wonderful tour through Cairo!
          Our favorite tour of the trip! Absolutely wonderful day with our guide, Rania. She is a total professional. The tour through Cairo was thorough but not overwhelming and we were impressed by her knowledge of everything. She is scholarly but makes the information accessible and understandable, so that our 9-year old was also engaged and following along. Rania is a wealth of information about the various exhibits at the Egyptian Museum and showed us all the highlights with in -depth and serious explanations. We saw so many things throughout the day --- the citadel, the Nile by boat, Coptic Cairo, just street scenery's, and our guide explained everything along the way and took our questions seriously. What we enjoyed the most about this tour, though, was our guide's warmth and willingness to answers all of our questions about modern Egyptian society, food --- everything. Furthermore, I appreciate her honesty and that there were no factory tours or trying to get us to buy things from shops. The felucca ride was wonderful and lunch at a local cafe was highly enjoyable. We loved eating local food. We wholeheartedly recommend Rania as a guide and we loved this tour!

          Absolutely Amazing! Far exceeded our Expectations. Safe, efficient, relaxed and well organized.
          Absolutely Amazing! My Fiance and I got the 8-Hour Private Tour of the Pyramids, Egyptian Museum and Bazaar from Cairo, and we were absolutely thrilled with the experience! Things we appreciate: - Fast, efficient, and safe transportation around Cairo. (Personal Driver) - Very detailed day plan with flexibility - Tickets for all events were pre purchased so almost no lines. - We were also brought to multiple high quality, authentic, stores around Ciaro as well as the Bazaar. - Lunch was amazing and very well done! (Included in our price minus drinks) - Our tour guide organized our Camel ride for us. - Our tour guide (Amr Mousa), also an Egyptologist, was exceptionally knowledgeable. Throughout the whole tour he was friendly and clearly very excited to do his job. This was especially helpful with the tour of the museum where all the information he was teaching us throughout the day really came together with his explanation of almost every exhibit. - Having our own driver for the day made it very convenient to leave belongings in a secure vehicle with the driver, in-between activities. (Especially helpful for shopping) I can't possibly cover the entire day, however, this experience far exceeded our expectations. I will definitely be recommending this experience to anyone I know, coming to Cairo.

          Absolutely amazing
          This was by far the best tour I took in Egypt. My tour guide Fatima Muhammad was hads down the best tour guide I've met. She was very patient wasn't pushy at all. Her English was so good. Most tour guides I could barley understand. She took me to some amazing spots and helped me get by. The driver was also very patient and kind. I would highly recommend her. It was a calm day and I needed a chill tour guide. I wouldn't want anyone else. She was also an amazing photographer

          Cairo in all her glory ! & Mo
          It is really hard to choose what part of the day (experience) was the best..The best part of the day was being able to experience the passion and understanding that Mo conveys about Egyptology and the Egyptian people in every place and conversation that we had this day ! Fascinating, intelligent , humble and kind ..One is as integral as the next to be able to experience Egypt! We are def coming back to this place ! Egypt is magical .. Our Thanks to Mo for everything and everything he is!

          I booked everything at last minute and I’m very glad that I did it. Special thanks to Ahmed and Mohamed for this amazing tour during the Ramadan. My guid was Ahmed Abu Emirah, he was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was taking his time to answer all my questions, even taking very nice pictures. He gave really nice recommendations about the food, places to see, and etc… I could learn a lot about the Egypt. and really convinced that I should plan another trip to see more. I highly recommend Tree of Life Tours and Ahmed.

          2 days in Cairo
          Thanks to Youssef and Emam for taking for around Cairo for two days. I appreciate with the heat it was difficult to do this during Ramadan, but both were professional. Youssef has good knowledge about Ancient Egypt and was always happy to answer questions, the lunches on tour were also of a good standard. I also appreciate the tour owner calling to follow up, I can see he takes interest in his guests.

          Amazing whirlwind day in Cairo/Giza
          We were met at the airport by Nour our guide, which instantly made us feel welcome and at ease. We started off in the khan khalili market which was relatively quiet, we didn’t want to buy anything so Nour walked us past a few old buildings and mosques in the old city and gave us some history. We then went on to the museum, it was HUGE! We only spent a couple of hours there where Nour showed us the most important/interesting pieces and then we were given time to explore on our own. We then went for lunch in one of the hotels not far from the pyramids! Food was delicious and filling. You need to pay for your drinks but we knew this and wasn't an issue. We then headed for the pyramids themselves where we got to ride a camel (amazing experience!) and got some great photos from the panoramic point. We quickly went to the sphinx before leaving but we were a little tight on time. Highlights were the museum and pyramids! Had we had enough time Nour had planned to take us to papyrus and oil shops but we weren’t really bothered about this and got to see what we wanted!! Highly recommend Nour as a guide - friendly, knowledgeable and fun!

          See what you came for and more!
          I’m now hooked onto hiring a local guide and driver and this duo was tops! Mohamed Gouda “Gouda” is enthusiastic and energetic and efficient as he leads us to the most significant sites and activities of the area. Great value. Presented in chronological order with first day in Giza and second day in Cairo.

          Amazing. A tour worth doing
          For my last real day in Egypt I booked this tour to see the pyramid, Sphinx, the bazaar, Egyptian museum and to have a boat ride. To start off Nour my tour guide and Hussain (I think that’s how you spell it) met me at my hotel in which Nour greeted me as the driver opened the door for me. I was introduced to them both and Nour explained to me what we were going to do. So to start we went to the Giza pyramids which was fantastic. Nour was very knowledgeable and had a clear accent so that I could understand what he was saying about the pyramids and then I experienced the camel ride where the driver drove us to the sight of the ride. The camel ride was amazing having pictures taken and it wasn’t a bad price just need to remember to tip due to that’s how they make their money, but it was very good I thought I was going to fall off at one point 😂 but the camel guide reassured me. Anyways after we went to the Sphinx where Nour explained about the Sphinx and then we headed off to the Baazar. The Baazar was luckily not busy and we saw many shops there where you could get your souvenirs and the driver Hussain picked us up promptly when we were done. After the Baazar we went to the museum which was busy. Lucky we could still move and there you got to see different things but especially King Tuts the boy kings golden mask and what was buried with him. That you had to queue for but your not allowed to take pictures I’m afraid but Nour explained everything that we saw even saw a couple of mummies too which we could take pictures off and finally to finish the tour we went on a boat ride on the Nile which was very relaxing. After the tour Nour was dropped off and the driver Hussain dropped me back to my hotel promptly and walked me to the gate of the hotel to make sure I got there. I loved the experience and can’t rate the tour guide or driver enough for this chance to have this tour. Thank you.

          Excellent Private Day Tour
          This day trip was amazing right from the beginning. Nour and Muhammed picked us up from the airport and we did all the stops stated best for us was the Pyramids and the Camel ride. They both got us through the day with no hassle and without having to stop in crowds. Even the oil store we went to was very intuitive with ‘Gugu’. The food was very tasty too and a full 5 course food just kept coming. Definitely highly recommend this private tour with pick up from the airport.
