          Not well-organised and rude staff
          1. Not well-organised 2. Staff are really rude - staff barked at us not to take photos even though my camera wasn't even out. They spoke very loudly among themselves, ignoring the museum's own request that the visitors speak softly. And even when some visitors ignored the rules to speak quietly, they didn't bother to ask them to quieten down, prefering to use their phones instead. This museum should learn a thing or two from the Munich Eqyptian Museum (MEM). The MEM is small and of course, doesn't have a collection as impressive as that of this Cairo museum. But the MEM does an amazing job with what it has - the collection is thoughtfully curated and displayed, the explanation and descriptions are clear and organised, and the staff are so welcoming. The curators of the MEM told a story with the way they arranged the exhibits. This Cairo museum is the direct opposite of the MEM.

          تجربة رائعة
          تم الاتفاق مع المرشدة السياحية ايمان، وكان كل شيء كما كان متفق عليه من البداية . وكانت هناك دقة في المواعيد حيث احترمت السيدة ايمان الموعد ولم يكن هناك أي تأخير بل بالعكس كان هناك مساعدة لنا من حيث ترتيب وتنسيق للزيارات حتى تكون مواتية لبرنامجنا كوننا انا وزوجي في نفس اليوم لدينا رحلة الى اسوان بالقطار لهذا اتفقنا على زيارة كل من اهرامات الجيزة،قلعة صلاح الدين والمتحف المصري. كان شرح السيدة ايمان وافي وملم ،سلس كانت متعاونة،حيوية واهم أمر كانت تؤدي عملها بروح مرحة وهذا ما أضفى على الأمر لمسة جميلة . النقل كان مريح وكانت كل تفاصيل الجولة مريحة. أنصح بالتعامل معهم وسيلاحظ كل من سيتعامل معهم انهم بالإضافة إلى الحصول على خدمة جيدة سيحصلون على اصدقاء رائعين. We agreed with the tourist guide Mrs Iman, and all it was okay as agreed. There was a punctuality as Mrs Iman respected the appointment and there was no delay. On the contrary, there was assistance in terms of arranging and coordinating visits so as to be favorable to our program. As my husband and I were on the same day we had a trip to Aswan by train so we agreed to visit each of the pyramids of Giza,Castle of Saladin and the Egyptian Museum. Mrs. Iman had a clearly , unacquainted and smooth explanation, she was cooperative, vital and the most important thing that she worked with a cheerful spirit. The transport was comfortable and all the details of the tour were comfortable. I recommend dealing with them and everyone who will deal with them will notice that in addition to getting good service they will get great friends.

          perfect operators and guide
          we are a group of friends working togather in saudi arabia and we decided to have a short vacation in Egypt and it was a great choice! Egypt is a beautiful country and people are very friendly.. our local tour operator in Cairo was " Egypt guide tours "and really they are a true guide for us . from the beginning, by the online booking they gave us all the information we need to know for our plan and stay in Egypt and helped us to chose the best program for each family of our group. for me, i went with my wife to Cairo pyramids and the citadel then in the night we attended an amazing show of a folc dance in the old Islamic street next day we went to the pharaohnic village by the boat and then lunch in another nile river cruise we loved it too in both days they offered a private tourist guide and a private car so we felt like Vip :) the hotel "cairo pyramid " is an excellent 5 stars hotel with an excellent breakfast it is so close to the pyramids. we are so satisfied about the service and the price

          happy 2 days in Egypt
          We booked two private tours to visit the Giza Pyramids and Cairo in the first day and Alexandria in the next day and enjoyed both! Our tour guide was Mr. Osama for both days and he was very knowledgeable, respectful and He answered all of our questions and took some amazing pictures of us. the driver arrived on time for pick up in a clean van that had a lot of space and air conditioned we were able to see many sites in each day and lunch was provided both days in a very good restaurants (the fish in Alexandria was really amazing!). We were very pleased with our experience and felt safe all the time.

          amazing time in Cairo
          Very professionally organized and trustworthy company. We were pleasantly surprised to be the only ones on the tours, (it was private but not expencive )but it also meant we had the full benefit from the experienced guide Osama ., He was very attentive to our needs, on time for all pick ups, friendly and even organized .Both tour guide and operators were perfect and knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Highly recommended for cairo tours if you only have a short trip to Egypt.

          My amazing trip👍🏻
          This winter, I went with my wife to the Pyramids and Museum of Egypt. we started our trip from cairo airport , Cairo, is definitely worth visiting.. The guide provided remarkable service and were willing to answer any question we had. Besides, they have the talent to make you feel as if you went back in time.. I recommend this trip with all my heart! It is an experience I will never forget. the hotel also was deluxe and deservs more than 5 stars and very cheap in mony! i liked the Pyramid of Sakkara and the colorful tombs.

        Zein is a fantastic guide! He is so knowledgeable and passionate about ancient Egypt and how everything was created. He is equally passionate about the preservation of the pyramids, tombs and artifacts.

        Anyone who gets Zein as their guide can count themselves very lucky indeed!!

        I loved this part of my trip. I did not have much time but the agency made sure to pick me up early and drop me off at the airport. Imane (Emy) was amazing. She gave us a whole tour of the sakkara sites. She explained in details the history. She even took me to buy my sons amazing necklaces with their names in calligraphy. The drive was smooth back and forth alongside the site.

        My tour guide Deen gave the most engaging and educational tour. I have never had as impressive a tour as that day in Saqqara. Now, I must return to see more, and I will always remember that adventure in the tombs.

        I recently toured the Saqqara pyramid and Serapeum with my guide Emy. She was very informative and extremely polite. She was able to explain the process that led from the step pyramid to the pyramids of Giza, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
