          Perfect day with Ibrahim!
          We did the private tour with Ibrahim and it was the perfect day! We were running a bit late and he was so flexible and accommodating. He was obviously very knowledgeable about everything while staying light and humorous the whole time. You hit all the major sites in Cairo. Would totally recommend!!

          The best guides in Cairo
          The best company who looked after my family perfectly. From picking us at the airport to explaining everything to showing us Cairo and the pyramids and taking us on a two day tour three hours from Cairo. The drivers and guides were fantastic and so caring. And they respond ASAP. I highly recommend. Thank you to Merit, Rames, Mohamed who took us to Al Alamein (and helped me when my daughter got ill) and the two fabulous drivers. Thank you so much. The best tour company in Cairo.

          Enjoyable time in Egypt with Cairo Top Tours but avoid its Jordan partner RTTO
          I booked a private and customized tour of Egypt and Jordan with Cairo Top Tours. Discussions on the itinerary for both countries started about 2.5 months before the departure date. The coordinator Mariam was competent and quick to respond on Egypt info. However info on Jordan was not clear as she had to rely on Jordan travel agent Ready To Take Off (RTTO), which was a terrible agency. You may refer to my review on RTTO (not recommended to use). The execution of the itinerary in Egypt was good. We enjoyed ourselves at the usual tourist sites like the pyramids, Alexandria, Coptic and Islamic areas, the Fort etc. the coordinator Mariam was always quick to respond and made adjustments where necessary. The drivers, tour leaders and guides were punctual, friendly and opened to changes on the ground. No pressure to give more tips than the standard but we tipped them generously. Our tour guide Ibrahim Abdultawab was exceptionally good. He was knowledgeable and detailed about the sites we visited, friendly and funny. Thanks to his recommendation we added a visit to Saqqara, which was really amazing. He also has a kind heart as he stepped in to cover our tour leader who had family emergency and another colleague who left two tourists stranded. Highly recommended to use Ibrahim should you visit Egypt. Of special mentioned was the Nile river cruise on M/S Farah. The ship was excellent and all the service staff on board were remarkable. Even the housekeeping crew made interesting towel displays in the room daily. Made us laughed a lot. The only downside for Cairo Top Tours was its partner RTTO in Jordan. We had a horrible and stressful time in Jordan no thanks to RTTO’s poor service, dishonest practices and pressure to give more tips. Otherwise I would have given Cairo Top Tours a 4-star rating.

          Séjour en Egypte Avril 2024
          We spent a week between Cairo and Luxor. Everything had been organized in advance via messages from our country. Communication with our contact was always perfect. Upon arrival in Egypt, we were taken care of as planned. Transportation, guide, and organization were all as expected. We had an unforgettable trip in this wonderful country. I highly recommend Cairo Top Tour.

          Very enjoyable
          Really enjoyed our trip to Egypt with Cairo Top tours. Our representatives met us at each airport on arrival and escorted us back to the airport. We completed tours of the Pyramids, museum, as well as the 4 day cruise of the nile from Luxor to Aswan. Mariam was always there to help and amend our trip as we required. Highly recommend.

          Full day Giza Pyramid and Egyptian Museum private tour.
          Me and my friend had a private tour which was guided by Mr. Mohamed and his driver Mr. Waled. First we went to Giza Pyramids, then we went to Egyptian Museum, the whole trip was very informative. Mr. Mohamed explained to us the history of Egypt. Also side trip to Oasis Aromatheraphy where we got the best perfumes, skincare and haircare. Last stop was in a lunch in Hun Pyramids Inn where we have the view of pyramids. The whole tour is great!

        My wife and I had a wondeful private tour of Alexandria on March 15, 2023. The tour guide Ghada Fadly is very knowledge and nicely showing us all the sites in the city. The car driver Judah and Ghada Al-Murshida spent the whole day driving us around and even took us to shipping for the gifts.

        We will surely recommend our friends to use the company for future trips in Cairo and Alexandria.

        We enjoyed our tour with Manal Atef giving us lots of information to go along with the places we visited. She was easy to understand and even would adjust the itinerary to suit our needs. She took us to a wonderful restaurant serving fresh fish with a beautiful view of the Mediterranean!

        They are the best in the game. From the moment we landed Ramez Maher made sure that we had fun while giving us the deep history of Egypt and ensuring our safety.The driver Mohamed Abdelsalam was a true professional.

        Had one extra day before boarding my flight back home in the night and so did this amazing one day private type to Alexandria from Cairo. Everything was so well arranged and my guide Eriny knew Alexandria so well and answered my many questions. The lunch in the beautiful Athenos Restaurant overlooking the Mediterranean Sea was really wow. Thanks to Osama for the arrangements and also my wonderful driver Eid for not only reaching me back to the airport on time but making enough time for last minute souvenir and sweets shopping. Thanks Cairo Top Tours.
