          Great trip and great guide
          Really great trip, Mohamed was an incredible guide, very friendly and knowledgeable. As a private tour they were very flexible to let me spend the time I wanted at each stop, and chose what other activities (I went into the Great Pyramid and the one at Saqqara, but skipped the camel ride). Overall was just what I was looking for!

          Warning to African Americans traveling to Egypt
          I initially wrote a review for Jakada Tours and gave a good review. I was asked to give a review on the first day of the tour. Never give a review on the first day because after you give the review the tour guides will take advantage the rest of the tour will be sub par guided, sub par information, and overall sub par experience. This is a warning specifically for African American's traveling to Egypt. Book your tours in the US with an accredited tour agency and not with the local agency directly. The owner asked me to buy him a $65 bottle of whiskey. Mohammed tried to cheat me out of $20 for a tour he said he would provide foe $70, but the day of the tour he told me that his grand mother was sick and rescheduled with another tour guide who was very new. When I we t on the tour, the guide took me to two of the sites and said that was the end of the tour. I said what about the third site, he said I only paid for the two sites. I told him that I paid for 3 sites and online it said they were $72. Mohammed quoted me at $70. So he calls Mohammed and he tells the guide it would be $20 more, and I said that is not what he quoted me. I wasn't paying anything extra because it was a scam. He finally agreed to the tour. If he didn't, I would not have paid anything for any of the tour. I paid for two nights in hurghada, but the owner booked my flight at the end of the day costing me an entire day Hughada, then the guide asked for $100 to book a tour that would include a couple of the things I wanted to do but within o e day. So I wasn't able to enjoy it as I wanted to, but the time I did spend was fun. They are not good with itineraries and I had to ask what I'm doing next, what time am I being picked up, who am I meeting with. Everyday was like that. It just wasn't well organized. Another guide taking me to aswan and the nubian village tried to get me to pay $300 for just a few spices. I was like these people really think we're dumb. I'm willing to spend because I know ow the poverty, but that was absurd. Again, the end of my tour in Aswan, the flight was 7 hours later and I had to stay at the airport the entire time rather than tour. Incredibly poor planning, but I feel it's because I'm African American. The guides tried discouraging me from going inside the temples and tombs and pyramids. One even went as far as standing outside the gate and giving me the information, and when I asked are we going in, he said , oh you want to in. What did I pay for? Just the audacity of these scammers. I'm positive that I didn't get the full tour given their shady behaviors towards me, so if you are African American, avoid Jakada Tours and book a legitimate tour where you have accountability and at least far less shady business. With that said, all praises to the most high, I was greatful for the opportunity to travel once again to an African country and explore and experience a different culture. Despite the antics of the tour operator and guides, I still had a wonderful time. I will not allow others to take away my sunshine and I made the most of what I was given by the most high. Only give reviews after you have completed the entire tour. If you tour 7 days, review after the 7th day to give an accurate review.

          We spent 9 days with Jakada and it was amazing. Both guides Mohammed and Azab were very knowledgeable and friendly. We really enjoyed getting to know them. My wife and I couldn't have asked for a better time. Her birthday was yesterday and Azab made sure it was special for her. Thanks jakada tours for everything

          Thank you Jakada
          Some of our trip locations were not listed on the drop downso I'm going to give an overview review. We spent half the time with Mohammed and half the time with Azab. Both are wonderful people, very nice, and very knowledgeable. They both went out of their way to make sure we were happy and having fun, including making sure we had soda anytime we wanted. Our accommodations were wonderful, the hotel and cruise ship were nice. They made sure safety and fun were top priorities. The drivers we had were great and made sure we were safe.

          OMG! It's taken me 25 years to come to Egypt, and my experience at Luxor was absolutely amazing. The valley of the kings was super dope. I did not know that King Tut's mummy was there, so I was very surprised by that and in awe. Thank you so much Azab for such a great tour. I was worn out, but it was worth it.

          Happy In Egypt
          I toured with Mohammed and he was a wonderful host. Extreme hospitality. So far my expectations are exceeded and I'm very happy that I chose Jakada Egypt Tours. If I come back, I would book with them again.

        We spent our last full day in Cairo with Maryam on this tour. Cairo is a very busy and crowded city and one of my main concerns was safety for my children. With Maryam we felt so incredibly safe and protected. She knows the city so well and seemed to know the officials at all of the sites. she was informative and made sure we got the full historical background on every thing without making it feel like we were in class. She is also the sweetest and kindest. My 10 year old daughters loved her. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering travel to Cairo. Her personal tour was unmatched!

        My last full day of my Egypt trip was spent going around sites in Cairo. I learned so much, from the museums to the historic churches. I enjoyed my time with my guide Sara and driver Ahmed. They made my trip so fun and memorable. Forever grateful to them for making my trip one to remember! I highly recommend Jakada Tours - they arranged everything for me and made sure itinerary met my needs - what I wanted to see with the budget and schedule that I had. Great company with great guides!

        Most people only visit the Pyramids in Cairo and skip the other parts missing out on so much Cairo has to offer. I did this tour with Jakada and loved every bit of it. The Egyptian museum was a treasure trove of Pharoahic history with its Mummy section. The architecture in the Alabaster mosque was stunning and the Coptic side was rich with history. We ended with a lovely shopping session at Khan El Khalili market. My guide, Mohammed was very knowledgeable about Cairo and paced the whole day perfectly without the tour feeling rushed or inadequate. I received lots of fun facts and information about every place we visited. Mohammed is also an incredible photographer and very patient, and took some lovely photos of me. He also took me for a local lunch of the iconic Egyptian Koshary that I loved! The tour gave me a taste of Cairo’s culture and local life, and both Jakada and Mohammed did a splendid job at introducing it to me. 10/10 recommend!

        An extraordinary day spent learning about the importance of numerous historical landmarks. Sara was again a wonderful guide. From explaining the relevance of the masterpieces in the Egyptian Museum, excavations, mummification, Pharaonic statues and artifacts to recalling the history of the Citadel of Saladin and the Mosque of Muhammed Ali, the minarets, the Five Pillars of Islam, etc., were all great lessons. I look forward to hopefully revisiting these places one day.

        My husband and I enjoyed visiting the Citadel of Saladin and Coptic Cairo Church. It was really interesting to learn about these important religious structures and the historical figures behind them and to see the gorgeous architecture. Mohamed, our guide, was knowledgeable about these structures' history and did a good job answering our questions about these sites.

        The Egyptian museum was surreal. To actually see all the history was amazing and listen to the information from our knowledgeable tour guide Maryam made it even more fascinating. The Citadel, Mosque and Bazaar were definitely added bonuses.

        I recently experienced an exceptional Cairo city tour guided by Mohammad. His deep knowledge of Egyptian history and culture brought the landmarks to life. Mohammad’s engaging storytelling and flexibility made the tour truly memorable. Highly recommend for an enriching and enjoyable exploration of Cairo!

        I have dreamt about coming to Egypt for a long time. Our tour guide Mohamed was an exceptional guide for my friends and I. He made our trip enjoyable and memorable. His knowledge is beyond measure. He is great at explaining and answered all our questions. His knowledge level is impressive. He made sure that we were safe at all times. He made sure that we had all that we needed. He made sure we were hydrated. He took us everywhere we wanted. He was very patient when we took a long time shopping. He was so patient with us. He did it all with a smile. I would definitely look for him as a guide when I come back and I will recommend him to my friends. I guarantee you will have a thorough knowledge of Egypt after you tour with Mohamed.
        He also took us to great restaurant.

        I am happy we had the opportunity to come to Egypt and that we got a special memory thanks to Mohamed

        Where do I begin! From the airport to the pyramids, our tour guide, Mr. Ahmed was simply the best! Not only did he provide top notch service he also answered all of my questions. And I had a ton of them! He was so patient, and super friendly. It was like he was family. Did I mention, he even helped me with my scarf just before I entered the Mosque! Like wow! I can’t wait to visit Egypt again!
