Full credits to Ahmed Hamed and Esam for two days of awesome tours. Did a day trip to Al Alamein and another day at the Citadel, Pyramids, and the Sphinx.

Very professional service from the duo, flexible pickup and drop offs, very informative tours, allowance for last minute deviations, and very helpful. The tour of the coptic Centre’s were an eye opener as well as the synagogue but thoroughly enjoyed the citadel. Visited the German, Italian, and Commonwealth memorials as well as the museum, they were very helpful in gaining access to the sites even as they were closed.

Highly recommend the pair for anyone in need of a tour of Cairo, it’s major sites as well as Al Alamein.

Booked two tours: Islamic and Christian Cairo and the 2nd one was for Giza Pyramids, Memphis and Sakkara. Our tour guide on both days was Sayed Mahmoud. Sayed was pleasant and knowledgeable. There was a bit of a misunderstanding on two occasions (apparently the famous Khan el Khalili is not part of the Islamic and Christian Cairo tour even though it is mentioned in the itinerary, so we walked briefly through the bazaar at the end of day 1 after we questioned that, and although we expressed our interest in riding camels, we didn’t get a chance to ride on camels during the pyramids tour due to some miscommunication), nevertheless, Sayed was at the hotel at the agreed upon time & did his best to accommodate our wishes. He also went out of his way to bring us to a shop serving fresh sugarcane juice and dates, which was a nice touch. He also had a good sense of humor, which we appreciated, he was patient and assisted us in taking numerous photos. The highlight of the tour for me was getting to see the Pyramid of Teti, which we were able to explore with no one else around. The restaurant where we had lunch on both days was really good and we had a lot of food options (it’s close to the pyramids and I believe it’s called Valley of the Kings Restaurant). We did have a good experience and we learned a lot on those two days! I would just let people know to consider packing some snacks/eat a hearty breakfast because it is a long and demanding day. I would recommend Sayed Mahmoud if you are interested in the history of these sites.

Ahmed Hamed was a kind and knowledgeable guide who gave us a wonderful time walking through Islamic and Christian Cairo, taking great pictures for us and showing us authentic food along the way. The arrangement was excellent, especially for those who would like an in-depth understanding of culture and history. Ahmed even went out of the way to arrange for us the sights and shops we would like to visit that are not part of the official itinerary. Would definitely recommend him for tours around Cairo and beyond!

To start, they arrived late. I got a message at start time they would be 20 minutes late due to traffic. Traffic is a very accepted issue in Cairo, how did they not plan for this?

The tour guide, Sayed, also continuously complained about the heat all day long. It was extremely annoying. If he wasn’t prepared for 90 degrees, he should not be an Egypt tour guide in the summer. It was hot, but I was completely fine.

The Islamic Cairo portion of the tour was fine. He gave me base level information, not a ton of details, and was fixated with telling me “there are a lot of details in the architecture). I didn’t learn much but felt we covered it well. I was frustrated when he saw his buddy at the second stop and wanted me to stop and listen to a Quran reading (clearly for a tip for the guy), which I refused.

Probably the worst tour I’ve ever had for Khan El-khalili and Coptic Cairo.

For Coptic cairo, he gave me ZERO information. To say he wasn’t knowledgeable might be a compliment. He pointed out none of the very important fixtures or the sites including the viewing area of the hanging church, the Virgin Mary painting, the dark pillar, etc…luckily I had read about them in advance. Quite frankly; this was a bad tour.

It got worse with Khan El Khalili. Our first stop was before Coptic Cairo, he walked me down one, wide street, with very few shops, telling me it’s better to see this part and not be busy. I told him that was absolutely not the experience I wanted at a busy bazaar and the point was to see the hustle and bustle there. He said we could come back later. We did, I almost wish we didn’t. I followed him around, through 3 dead ends, once he circled the same block twice, it was as if he had never been there before. I asked about the spices, he couldn’t explain them to me.

Honestly, this tour was awful and Sayed was one of the worst tour guides I have ever had.

We tried three tour guides in Egypt so far, and this one by Mr Ahmed Hamed is by no doubt the best. He has strong knowledge of Egyptian history and culture, which he explained it with clarity and lucidity.

He also knows the local secrets well. I was looking to buy cartouches and he was able to get me a good price by bringing me to a upstairs wholesale shop in the downtown bazaar.

Last but not least, he knows those hidden photo spots in every attraction where he took some very good photos of us!

Definitely recommend this tour and tour guide for Cairo as well as the rest of Egypt.

Amazing tour guide. Has so much fun. Learned a lot about the culture. Took me to the best pure fresh sugarcane juice in the morning to start. After touring and learning all the culture, religions, and beautiful churches and mosques, Ola ended my New Year’s Eve with a bang. She took me to a fine dining traditional Egyptian lunch on a floating restaurant overlooking the River Niles. What else can one ask for when you try to find the best you can from this year of 2020! I was touched!

Ola our guide is fluent in three languages Arabic , Russian and English . She was very patient from the getgo. We weren’t able to make at our start time due to our kids not waking up in time but she and her driver were very understanding .

She is very knowledgeable in Egyptian history. Gave us a very good tour we ended up learning a lot . We felt at ease with her .

We did do some side shopping (never pressed to buy anything we didn’t want ) . We wanted some scarfs and she at the end took us there .

Our driver Farag was well dressed (suited )and extremely professional.

Strongly recommend Ola and Farag. The van was spacious and comfortable .
