      Splendid Time
      Our small group of four adults had a splendid time touring Egypt, including Cairo, Giza, Aswan, and Luxor with multiple sights within and in between. Our principal guide, Super Mo, had it all planned for us in such an accommodating and thoughtful way for our needs, vacation timeframe, budget, and the sights we wished to see. The tour plan was set for handling admission to all sites, internal transportation, round-trip domestic flights, and Nile cruise accommodation - all of which were handled in a commendable way. We greatly enjoyed every part of our tour and were very satisfied with the services we received. The people who assisted us were the friendliest and most helpful, the service and food provided on the Nile cruise were excellent, and the recommended optional excursions in our itinerary of visiting local villages, artisan workshops, and dining at local restaurants with authentic food were remarkable experiences that we'll always remember. The team comprised Egyptology-professional tour guides - counting Super Mo in the Cairo/Giza part and his colleague Super Mo 2 in the Aswan/Luxor part - who were very knowledgeable, thorough, kind, and witty, explaining historic information to us in such an amusing story-telling way. Among the team were also professional drivers who drove us safely through lots of traffic in comfortable air-conditioned vans. The drivers were genuinely friendly, kind, and gracious to all of us too. Our guides and drivers went above what any normal tour company would do. They worked around and for all ages and abilities. We have been on many tours and this was beyond any of what we had, so accommodating and gracious at all times. Being a small touring group, we got to know them, joke with them, and most of all,  love them. We highly recommend them to anyone who's considering touring Egypt.

      Amazing guide and excellent experience
      Mahmoud was my family's guide during our stay in Egypt. We couldn't have chosen a better guide. In addition to Cairo and Giza, we went to Luxor, Hurghada, Alexandria and the White Desert and all the tours, drivers and guides he provided for us were excellent. We cannot thank you for the dedication and professionalism he dedicated to our family. A tip for anyone visiting the cairo market with Mahmoud, ask for the egyptian pancakes for lunch, they are wonderful and we wouldn't have tried them without him.

      Awesome experience
      I have been in Alexandria, Cairo, Gize, Luxor, Hurghada and White Desert and Mahmoud has been my family’s guide between April 2nd and April 11th. We had such a great time and I can say for sure: 100% of what we planned, happened exactly as we expected. I cannot imagine exploring Egypt without him and his expertise. All transfers, guides and tours that he arranged for us worked perfectly and on time. Also the most important thing. My daughter injuries her foot just the day before our arrival. He didn’t have nothing to care about that. But on the way between the airport and the hospital, the driver picked him up and he was there to take care about us and help with the communication with staffs and all procedures necessary. That day will never be forgotten by me. Our deal supposed to start on the next day but he made himself to be present just after finish a tour with another group. That’s why I recommend him as a guide to visit and explore Egypt to all my friends and for sure will be mine again when I be back. Thanks my friend for all your support.

      Incredible service and experience
      Great service!, including an exceptional English guide and driver, excellent timing and punctuality that allowed us to be ahead of crowds everywhere. The car was new and very clean, snacks and water were provided the full day and we felt completely safe during the whole trip. We even got a great price for the next day taxi to the airport. Incredible price for the amazing experience we got.

      Mahmoud the best guide
      Mahmoud was excellent and made life & time fascinating. The tour company were good in timing and in making and managing the programs. It is highly recommended.We only had a few hours to see many things out list in Cairo. Mahmoud met us at the airport upon arrival and off we went to see pyramids, the Egiptean Museum, the Sphinx, to the Citadel and Khan El Khalili, make us the best pictures/great memories and back to the airport. He was a wonderful and very knowledgeable guide and was able to show us just a few of the extraordinary sites of Egypy in a few hours and was very flexible with us and was very attentive and accommodating to us! Cannot wait to go back when we have more time to spend with Mahmoud as our guide of course! Highly recommend Mahmoud!

He is very personable and the best tour guide I have ever been with. He is very knowledgeable too which was very impressive . The trip was to Cairo, Luxor and Hurghada and he made every location very special and memorable.

      Mahmoud is the best!
      Two amazing days with Mahmoud at Giza Piramids, Saqqara, Cairo. We enjoyed every single experience he proposed us: Egyptian museum, Citadel, Khan el Khalili, Mohammed Alì Mosque, piramids and many others. One day with car and driver from Cairo to Alexandria (thanks to Ashraf). Mahmoud’s professionality and kindness was wonderful. Thank you very much Mahmoud for everything. Call Egypt Wonders Tours for any kind of experience in Egypt and ask for Mahmoud :)

      My dream came true
      For my birthday this year, I wanted to visit two of the 7 wonders of the ancient world. After dropping by The Petra in Jordan, I flew to Cairo to see the Great Pyramids of Giza. During my research, I found Mahmoud from Egypt Wonders Tours and connected via WhatsApp. Mahmoud impressed me with his very prompt response and because I had very limited time, he worked with me to customise my 1-day tour. Driving in Cairo will be crazy and am glad they provide transportation with hotel pick up and drop off. One of the reasons why I appreciated Mahmoud’s services very much was his ability to share with us details about our sites’ history. His recommendation of places to go and restaurants/cafes is spot on to give us awesome experiences. I highly recommend Mahmoud if you are visiting Cairo. He can be contacted via WhatsApp at +20 109 235 4335. Oh! One more thing, he is a great photographer too!!!

      FROM OLD TESTAMENT TO THE NEW TESTAMENT: EGYPT-JORDAN - JERUSALEM
      One of my top trips, this year, has been to Egypt. The main, and most important reason for this opinion, was our guide, Mo Maghrabi. He was more than just a “tour guide”. His clear and concise descriptions and explanations kept our interest and attention high. He is an informed Egyptologist who takes you back through history in a way that no other “tour guide" does. I have been to Nepal, China ,Cuba and Buthan, etc., and have never been so entranced by the descriptions of any other tour guide. His English is perfect and clear. He not only taught us about ancient Egypt, but he also gave us the history of Moses and we felt as if we were there , with the Pharaohs. Another fun part , was snorkeling in the Red Sea , and the "Cleopatra Treatment" , which Mo had suggested to us and planned for us in the trip. The Mediterranean food, the ride on the camels by the Pyramids, the three hours of driving through the Sahara desert , at midnight , towards Abu-Simbel , was spectacular and the cruise on the Nile was an exhilarating time. Thank you, Mo Maghrabi, for an unforgettable experience and also for arranging our trip to Jordan , (Petra) and Dead Sea, Jerusalem, Palestine, and Israel . We will do this , with Mo, again !!! We are more than secure when we suggest

      Trip from Hurghada hosted by SUPER MO
      Cairo by plane! 5 star trip for sure. So what should you expect? Whole day trip starting at 4 a.m. at your Hotel. Private transfer to Hurghada airport at 5.45 and getting back around 11 p.m. at the Hotel. Flight from Cairo is departing at 9.15 p.m. and you will get a private car service from Hurghada airport back to Hotel. In between is Cairo fairy tale. Pyramids, Sphinx, Museum, Citadel... You will be able to create it yourself. Like additional toppings at pizza. It will cost you little bit more if you like to get much more. Price is very competitive, service - professional and friendly. Be sure that you will get unforgettable experience and prepare yourself to be exhausted at the end but this excursion is worth of every single EUR or USD you paid and for all the efforts you gave. Thanks Mohammed and Akram! Really great job!!!

    I know it is Ramadan so I was willing to accept that food would be an issue but it was a bland tour walking through downtown visiting few sites of interest and ended up at the market which was the highlight and well worth a visit

    Dear David, Thanks for your feedback. We understand that Ramadan as the holy month of fasting affected your adventure and food tasting was one of the main reason why we run this tour. Going forward during Ramadan time, we will run the walking tour later in the evening, when authentic restaurants are opened for public.
