    Trusted, safe and on time.
    We booked this excursion as cruise passengers arrived at Alexandria. At the time of booking, i was worry of being late. We did everything on the list and got back earlier than planned. The tour guide did an amazing job in every aspect of the trip. I would recommend this itinerary to everyone. So much smaller group (only 6 guests), comfortable van, safe driver and knowledgeable tour guide.

    Wonderful bucket list tour
    We took this tour because we couldn't get the ship tour (sold out.) I am so glad we did. It was amazing. First of all, Attarious helped me with the logistics of coordinating the arrival of my travel companion into Cairo (long story.) He was super helpful, going out of his way to assist me and her to join together on the tour. Second, Ayoub, our tour guide, was not only very knowledgeable about the history of Egypt, but also extremely savvy about the environment. The Pyramids are the most awesome sight I have ever seen, but make no mistake, there are hustlers all over the place looking to take your money. He protected us from that and warned us what to watch for. Finally, they assisted another couple on the ship who were caught without a tour at the last minute (ship/guest mixup) and saved them major disappointment. I was very worried we might miss the return to ship because it was not a sanctioned ship tour. Have no concern about that; they assured me we would be back on time and kept us on schedule. Not an issue whatsoever. All in all, one of the best experiences of my life and I highly recommend this tour group. There was a total of 6 in our tour, so we got much more attention than the big bus tours. Use them without hesitation!

    Custom excursion
    Great experience! Our tour guide Ahmed was very friendly and easy to work with and knowledgeable. I emailed Egypt tours and was able to customize our experience. We came off our cruise and Ahmed was waiting for us with our names. Cruise tours goes in large groups so the private vehicle was clearly the better choice. We got to see the pyramids, ride camels, eat at a nice Egyptian restaurant with great food and explore different local shops/the Khan market. My husband and I were both very happy with the day!

    Pyramids of Giza
    Our guide Mina was fantastic. Funny, upbeat, informative and showed us how to get the best photos. We took the 7:00am tour and would recommend, to beat the crowds. Our ticket included entry inside the Great Pyramid and I would recommend doing this. Our driver Mostafa was great, driving amongst the chaotic Cairo traffic.

    8 Days in Egypt with Nike Cruise
    Luxor to Aswan 5 day Nile Cruise on the Steigenberger Legacy has been fantastic. All organised through Egypt Day Tours. Our private guide Mo has been incredible. Very knowledgeable and with a sense of humour. He met us at the airport, took us to the boat and organised all drivers and tickets to temples. Plenty of free time to relax on board the boat and not feel rushed. I highly recommend Egypt day tours. Tonight we fly back to Cairo to see the Pyramids and Cairo. Flights being part of our package. 8 days in Egypt highly recommend

    Egypt Pyramid Tour with Ayoub
    Ayoub hosted us on a long layover on our honeymoon and did an amazing job. He took us to the pyramids, the museum and a couple other spots around Cairo that were all great. Super knowledgeable about all things Egypt from past to present. Would highly recommend anyone coming to Cairo do a tour with him!

    Awesome Cairo layover tour
    I'm so happy that I chose this tour for my layover in Cairo. I don't know if I can put it all into words. This tour was AMAZING! First of all, on the way to the Giza pyramids we got to learn about the history from our guide, Ayoub. He was very catering and stopped to get refreshments and anything else we needed for the trip. At the pyramids, Ayoub took pics for us and went out of his way to make sure we had a great time. The camel rides was my favorite part!! The handlers were so funny. And just when I thought the tour couldn't get any better, we went out to lunch at this beautiful restaurant. It was breath taking and the food was sooooo good and authentic! Our driver, Hany, got us back to the airport in plenty of time to catch our flight. This tour was a life-changing experience for me and I'll definitely visit again!

    Wow oh wow!
    If you think you’ve seen enough churches and garbage is not interesting you need to go to these places! I was very disappointed when I learnt that we remained ON the bus for the trip to Garbage City. I mean what sort of tour doesn’t let you off a bus to experience the vibe? The answer is: A smart tour! Garbage City absolutely fascinated us, driving through narrow, windy, rubbish congested streets WATCHING garbage being lowered to the ground by pulley ropes, seeing the dark “sorting” downstairs “rooms” where people sat and sorted rubbish into paper/plastic etc. Taking in the local shops and day to day interactions and not fully experiencing the stench (occasionally we got a whiff from the did safety of the bus) of the refuse was a real mind blower. This place was full of atmosphere. On to the Church Cave, with the carvings and the capacity for 20,000 people, literally set into a wide cave, there is so much atmosphere here that it is a very moving experience and I am not a religious person.

    Cairo Day and Night Tours Extravaganza
    Mina and his team gave us the best 3-Day Cairo we could have ever have hoped for. Our group was 17 people and we were so well taken care of. Mina knew the history of Egypt like a professor and we all saw and learned so much. Our daily security guards made sure we were safe every minute and our driver was an expert at navigating Cairo traffic. Our tours were tailored to visit the sights we wanted to see and we even added tours at the last minute. I highly recommend Egypt Day Tours for all your touring in needs in Egypt.

    It was amazing tour! My guide Jean Bahgat and the amazing driver took me from my hotel in Alexandrea. They both were so kind! I felt like i am with my friends for the years. We went to Cairo and saw many many things. Jean always told me interesting things and history about the places, museums we see. We even visited the parfume store which was made from papyrus, also seeing how to make a papyrus was great. Coming to the pyramids and camel? It was perfect! Jean took my great photos. I can definitely recommend this tour to everyone! This was the best tour i have ever been in.

    Great day
    Great day on this tour. Ayoub was my guide and very fun to be around. Saw all the sights The museum was especially awesome
  • Kweilhammer
    I was able to design a custom tour with this company at a very reasonable price. I had specific things I wanted to see and I was able to combine that with transport to the airport at the end, saving me time and money. My guide Ayoub was amazing and went out of his way to ensure I had the best day. The driver Mohamed was awesome as well. I should mention I am a solo female traveler and felt safe 100% of the time. Definitely recommend.

    Amazing experience in Cairo 🥰
    We had a fantastic experience in Cairo and Alexandria!! Three days full of photos, experiences and incredible service!! Our driver helped us a lot, he was smiling, he was always on time and took care of us so that we could have a very good and safe trip! (thank you Hany)!! Ayoub our guide was excellent, with a lot of knowledge, he made us feel comfortable from the start and helped us to see as much as we could even though the days were few. Kind and always willing to change the program to see something else we might want!! everything was fantastic and we highly recommend it!! thank you for everything both of you !! You are amazing. Hope to see you again on an another trip in Egypt! 😁
