          Extremely dishonest company—avoid at all cost!
          I paid the company for a guided 3 day tour with a professional guide. In Egypt, guides must be throughly educated and licensed. Instead, they sent me with a student who didn’t know anything about the sites, but they all claimed he was a proper Egyptologist. In fact, the kid had to bribe the police every place we visited to avoid getting in big trouble for not being licensed. I spent a lot of time and money, and I learned nothing. It ruined the whole experience. The guide was totally lost, sometimes buying the wrong ticket and taking me to famous sites he himself had never visited before. When I told the company about this, they lied to me over and over. They said he was licensed, so I asked for his credentials. They sent me some card that was totally unrelated. I called them out, so they sent a picture of a tourist guide license, but the card had a different name than the first, was expired, and had the exact same picture as the previous card. The the company was photoshopping the ID, taking everything to a wild level of dishonesty. Making things worse, the “guide” was almost two hours late the first day!! Not learning his lesson, he was still 30+ minutes late the other days.

          Nice tour in Cairo and Alexandria
          They were on time at our hotel and we visited everything that was included plus some other shops not included. Our guide was very knowledgeable and knew his way around. It was a good tour

          At the beginning we were skeptical about taking a tour, but then we decided to join this tour. We had a great time with our guide Mido. He provided us a lot of information, curiosities, and detailed explanations about the Pyramids and Giza Nechropolis. All the entrance fees and lunches that were agreed before with agency have been confirmed. Definitely worth it! We enjoyed every moment a lot!

          Definitely worth it!
          After reading on internet about many negative experiences with tours in Cairo, we found Visitors Egypt Tours. We never could take a better decision! Mido was an amazing guide. As an expert egyptologist, he was able to explain us many details about Pyramids and the history of Ancient Egypt. Mido was also really a great photographer, finding great spots for pictures! He gave us the time to explore and to enjoy it as we wanted. Everything that was described and agreed with the agency before the tour was confirmed: no surprises and no extra money. We had definitely a great experience who made us love the place. We definitely suggest to take this tour!

          Best Tour Guides in Cairo
          This team is great from picking us up at the hotel to the arrival at GIZA we could not have asked for a better tur guide. When we arrived at the site the team made our experience out of this world. They went beyond what we expected. They assist with the best photos and Mido and team are great.

          Amazing Trip
          This trip was amazing and I would highly recommend. Our tour guide Mito aka Mohamed was fantastic. Very knowledgable. Well worth every penny. Camel ride, pyramids, refreshments, picture museum. It was just so good and I highly recommend. Do not go to pyramids without a tour. Ours protected us from all the sellers and made us feel safe. 5*

          Sound and Light Show at The Pyramids of Giza was absolutely beautiful at Night. Our Tour Guide SALAH showed us the absolute BEST TİME on this tour and was very hospitable and professional and courteous.

          Giza Pyramids, Memphis and Sakkara Your with Mohammed
          We arrived yesterday back in Cairo from Luxor with airport pickup by Visitors Egypt. We have three days booked with them for tours. Today we were picked up at the Mena House by our guide Mohammed and driver, also Mohammed. We started at 8:00 with the Giza Pyramids and the Sphinx, then on to Memphis, and to the Step Pyramids of Zoser in Sakkara. Mohammed did an excellent job of explaining the history of each site we visited. Our tour also included a lunch at a local restaurant that was excellent. There was no way to eat all the good presented. We would highly recommend Mohammed. Tomorrow he will be our guide to the Cairo Museum, the Citadel and the Mohammed Ali Mosque.

          Cairo to Alexandria Tour
          This had to have been the worst tour my husband I have ever taken. Starting off the driver and guide were late, and began arguing with the police at the hotel. Then proceeding in to Alexandria the driver stopped several times not knowing where he was going, and the guide repeated himself several times throughout the trip. Once getting to our stops which they had no idea how to get there either the guide was not helpful at all with the history and several other guides around us were way more informative. At one point we had to wait 30 mins for the driver to return to pick us up.

          Best guide ever!
          Today we took a private tour with our guide Hossam to the Egyptian museum. Mr. Hossam is a very knowledgeable and thorough guide and was very kind to us. Everything was as we expected, our tour was punctual and free of hassle. He took us to see the most treasured artifacts in all of Egypt and in all of the world! After our tour of the museum we went on a lovely lunch about aboard Les Memphis viewing the Nile river. We had a lovely conversation and enjoyed conversation about Egyptian culture. It was a most perfect day. I highly recommend Visitors Egypt Tours.

          Egypt cruise on the Nile
          we had an awesome opportunity to see the Zar performance in Cairo! My tour manager sameh karika got us front row seats at this moving performance. Great service and professionalism from all of your guides but by far Alexandria was the best Visitors Egypt Tour did a great job from start to finish!
