About
Ar – Rashid Town is Founded around in the 9th century, Rosetta boomed with the decline of Alexandria following the Ottoman conquest of Egypt in 1517, only to wane in importance after Alexandria's revival. During the 19th century, it was a popular British tourist destination, known for its charming Ottoman mansions, citrus groves and comparative cleanliness.

      Amazing experience in Cairo
      He was amazing, knowledgeable, funny and very care. He picked up from the hotel and he showed part of the city that we didn’t know. The driver as well was amazing at the end he bought us ice creams. The restaurant and the food was amazing as well. I completely recommended both of him

      Amazing experience
      I had an amazing time on this tour with Nour Nagy & Nasser. Nour was very accommodating and knowledgeable on each site, taking great time to explain the history and how certain things came to be. As a solo traveler I felt comfortable and appreciated the time Nour took at each site to take photos of me! Would highly recommend this tour!

      Amazing half day tour at the pyramids!
      Amazing half days at the pyramids with the expert guidance of Gamal and the great driving from Hani. Gamal is very knowledgeable and takes the best photos. We did the camel ride and spent a lot of time around Giza. We ended with a delicious lunch.

      Sailing down the river Nile on felucca boat.
      After a very long and tiring flight our evry first egyptian experience was the sunset view on the river Nile in Luxor. Even though the summer heat was at it’s peak the sailboat ride and experience washed away our fatigue and got us energised for the adventure ahead of us. I would recommend this laid back yet beautiful activity for all.

      They took great care of us!
      We had a layover in Egypt and decided to book a private day tour to make the most of our time. Despite our flight being very delayed, George quickly greeted us right outside of the airport, and even though we had no means of contacting the company he actively and patiently waited the whole time to make sure he didn’t miss us. George and our guide Rania took care to keep the atmosphere lively and engaging. Rania was so very knowledgeable and flexible in making sure we were comfortable and had a good time. She took plenty of great photos with different poses of us and gave us a lot of context of the history for everything we saw. They brought us to see the pyramids, Sphinx, and mummies in the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization. The whole day was unique and amazing we were able to fit so much highlights all within daylight hours. They took great care of us!

      Amazing tour!
      Such an amazing tour. Our tour guide Gamal was one of the best tour guides I had here in Egypt. He was very attentive and made sure to make us feel comfortable. Totally recommend to anyone who wants a good time and learn so much information regarding the pyramids!

      Best experience in Cairo
      We had an amazing experience. Gamale was our guide and he took us to see the pyramids, the sphinx, we learned about hieroglyphics, high level history of Egypt and much more. He also showed us how to take the best pictures. I highly recommend this tour.

      Best tour of Egypt! Highly recommend!
      I had such a great time with Rania and George. My friend and I were in Egypt for a short layover so we booked a private tour for the day. My friend and I had arrived later than expected due to a flight delay but George was very patient especially since we couldn’t get in contact with him to let him know that we were delayed. He waited at the outside entrance for two hours and when we did arrive, he greeted us with a smile and told us not to worry. The only concern he had was that we wouldn’t be able to see everything but he would try his best. Rania was our guide for the day. We were able to see the pyramids of Giza and we saw the Spinx. We rode on a camel beside the pyramids. After that, we had a fabulous traditional Egyptian lunch and then we headed over to the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization where we saw mummies. Rania is very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of information. We learned so much! Rania and George are both so kind. They made it such a fun experience, especially during the car ride. We were listening to lots of great music. Rania also helped us take a ton of photos! I highly recommend booking a tour through this company. If you get a chance to pick the guide, I recommend Rania and George!

      The name says it all!
      This tour fits the highlights into a single day trip, just like the title says. Driver and guide were separate people which worked great, the car was always waiting at the entrance. The tour also included some stops at shops that didn’t harass you; if you said you didn’t want to buy, they wouldn’t harass you as you kept looking. The Egyptologist (Ahmed Elsayed) guide was wonderful. He had years of experience and did not rush me through the tour. He was happy to stay and answer questions as I wondered around these incredible sites! Ahmed is in the last photo.
