          Cairo and Nile Cruise - Highly Recommend
          This was one of the most magical vacations I've ever had. Egypt Day Tours worked with me to create this solo tour and make me feel safe, comfortable, and well taken care of. The entire staff including tour guides and drivers and cruise staff were there for me and were very knowledgeable and professional. They made me feel at home. I will never forget this vacation. The owner even worked with me to change up a flight to allow me to fly back into Cairo due to a schedule change which was much appreciated. I highly recommend this tour company.

          Best Trip Ever
          This was one of the best all inclusive private tours you could ever hope for. Every detail was meticulously planned and executed for our group from arrival to departure. Our experience in Giza, Cairo, Aswan, Luxor and the Nile Cruise surpassed all expectations. Our guide Mohammed is an expert in Egyptology and made every Temple tour and Tomb visit far richer than we could have ever imagined with his knowledge of Pharaohs, Kings, Queens, artifacts and hieroglyphics. We will remember our time in Egypt forever. I highly recommend Egypt Day Tours to anyone considering a trip to Egypt.

          Highlights of Egypt
          The entire tour was amazing. So well organized- from the airport pickup to our final drop off. Our driver was excellent- drove us throughout Cairo and Alexandria, and over to El-Alamein. Our guide on the Nile cruise was incredible- you could tell how much he loved his heritage and wanted us to understand and appreciate it also. The sights are incredible, amazing history. Would definately recommend and use Egypt Day Tours again next visit!!

          Pyramids of Giza and Sphinx bucket list
          From the moment I was picked up on time as planned at my hotel to the time I was safely dropped off this was a fantastic day, an awesome bucket list experience and it was made so easy by Amr and his driver in a private air-conditioned car. We drove to the museum where Amr got us in quickly skipping the queues and displayed his knowledge of Egyptian history and culture. After a few hours we were on our way through Giza and after a brief stop at a papyrus place we ended up at the pyramids. It was very crowded to get in so we walked a little and again were able to skip some main queues to avoid wait times for seeing the Sphinx and pyramids. A truly magical experience which was made all the better by Amr. Full marks to him for his excellent service, his knowledge and his friendly and pleasant nature. I thoroughly recommend him and this tour. Well worth it.

          Private 9 nights tour Cairo - Nile cruise - Hurgada
          We're just back from the most amazing 9 nights private chauffeured tour of Egypt, professionally organized by Ahmed and his team in Egypt Day Tours. We stayed 3 nights in Cairo, 3 nights on a ship on the NIle and 3 nights in Hurgada. Accommodation, food, services, drivers, sights, everything was fantastic. Our guides, Ahmed in Cairo and Mohammed (Super Mo) during the cruise, were brilliant too. They were both very knowledgeable and very nice persons and we had an amazing time with them discovering modern and ancient Egypt. We managed to see and experience so much in this short time. Thank you, Egypt Day Tour, for this fabulous trip.

          Pyramids, Sphyx and Egyptian Museum
          Mina was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable about all the sights that we visited. He took us to the perfect spots to see the pyramids and sphinx and the photographs that he took of us at these places are great - thank you ! Nothing was too much trouble for him and he made sure that we were both happy and comfortable all the time. He made our day truly memorable and I thoroughly recommend him.

          The BEST in Egypt! You will be so happy you chose Egypt Day Tours!
          We had an excellent experience with Egypt Day Tours. Everyone we interacted with was so kind and helpful, and the guides made long drives to Alexandria and sights enjoyable. Ayoub and John were so knowledgeable and provided a wealth of knowledge that even the Egyptology nerds in our group were entertained and satisfied. It was an absolute pleasure working with everyone and they made this trip so special for our family. These guys are excellent! People like Mahmoud, Mustafa (driver), Peter (Sharm), and Osama… were excellent! They will truly give you the best experience you could hope for. We hope to have more trips with them in the future!

          Family trip To Egyptian museum and the Pyramids
          my wife, my twin kids, and myself had Sarah as our guide for a full day. She took us to the Egyptian museum in Cairo and then for a visit at the pyramids and the Sphinx. We were extremely happy to have her as our guide, at the end it is important to have a good guide, with wealth of knowledge, and most important to be willing to transfer his knowledge to you as a tourist. Sarah had all this, excellent knowledge of the Egyptian history, and simple way to deliver this knowledge to us and she had her style to keep 11 years old kids engaged in our visit. She Also has the passion about the history of Egypt. At every piece we stopped at the museum, she explained it to us thoroughly. During our visit to the pyramids she showed that she is ready to distinguish herself from all the other guides we saw at the sight. She not only explained to us about the history of the pyramids, and the techniques of building them, but also took us to the spots we very peculiar pictures can be taken. My kids were very happy with the remarkable pictures she took for them and at the best locations and at the best angles. I have seen guides in front of us walking beside these peculiar locations without stopping to tell their customers about the best places to make good pictures while we stood at each place to take these pictures. Her style with the kids was very attentive, that they were encouraged to ask questions and to turn their trip into not only a fun vacation, but also a learning journey. Thank you Sarah for the time and effort you gave us during this tour. we fully recommend her as a tour especially for families with young kids.

          Going to an erotic country.
          The tour agent - Suzanna is professional and helpful. She communicated with me every day and every few hours to ensure that I was well taken care of during the trip. This has been a wonderful trip. Honestly, before the trip, I was worried as Egypt is unfamiliar to me and I have had no dealings g with any Egyptians n before. After the trip, it has changed my perception and will tell my fellow friends that Egypt is a nice country to visit. I am very glad and my daughter was happy and liked the tour in Egypt. Although we had different guides every day , it has provided us with a different views of the country and the lifestyle of a Egyptian.

          Mina, the super guide!
          We spent 2 full days touring Cairo with Mina. He greeted us on day 1 with a big smile and a small anecdote about his name and thats all it took to break the ice. He has a knack for story telling and in depth knowledge about Egypt’s rich history. All this made our visit to each landmark so memorable. His amicable personality and helpful attitude won our hearts. Thank you Mina, for making Cairo even more special and taking us to the hidden gems. Ps. He is great behind the lens too!!

          Private 4-day tour, a.k.a. Smooth Sailing and Smiles All Around: Egypt Day Tours Delivers Unmatched Safety and Service
          Our family's 4-day private tour adventure with Egypt Day Tours was a remarkable experience, significantly enhanced by our guide, Sara, and our driver, Muhammed. Sara, an expert Egyptologist, brilliantly engaged both adults and our 8-year-old daughter with her captivating storytelling. She skillfully made a wide array of historical sites, including the Pyramids of Giza, Saqqara, Dahshur, as well as various museums, mosques, and churches, deeply enthralling. Balancing such diverse sites while keeping a child interested is no small feat, and Sara managed it wonderfully. Muhammed provided a sense of safety and calm in the bustling streets of Cairo. His attentive and helpful approach, not just as a driver but as a supportive member of our tour, greatly contributed to our peace of mind. Together, they ensured that our tour was not only educational and enjoyable but also extremely safe, addressing our initial concerns and surpassing our expectations in safety and care. The tour was perfectly arranged, with every detail meticulously managed. From tickets to timings, everything was taken care of, leaving us with no worries about planning or logistics, available for requests even after tour hours. Any request we had was accommodated, a rarity in Egypt. Moreover, their excellent lunch recommendations allowed us to enjoy authentic Egyptian cuisine, affordably priced, and always with an excellent view of the Pyramids or the Nile or bustling city below.

          Absolutely fabulous, the best shore excursion we have ever been on. Our minibus was the first one after exiting the cruise terminal. Our driver and security guy were great and our Tour guide Rasha was amazing with her in-depth knowledge and passion for Egyptian History made our visit to Giza and the Cairo Museum an experience we will treasure forever. I wish we could have given her a 10 star rating
