Aswan Philae Temple,High Dam and unfinished obelisk

By Twitter Egypt Travel
About
The granite quarries which supplied the ancient Egyptians with most of the hard stone used in pyramids and temples. The quarries still hold the Unfinished Obelisk, possibly intended as a companion to the Lateran Obelisk, originally at Karnak but now in Rome. It would have weighed over 1,100 tons and would have been the world's largest piece of stone ever handled. The Temple of Philae on the island of Agilka. The temple was dedicated to Isis, sister/wife of Osiris and patroness of the Ptolemaic rule.

        Speedy and Kind
        Isaac was incredibly fast with getting me my visa and getting me through customs! L Paul my driver was extremely kind and even helped me with my very heavy luggage up to the 5th floor! Highly recommend this service especially if it’s your first time in Egypt.

        Cairo Assist Upon Arrival
        Isaac‘s service at the airport was incredibly helpful. It was a great experience and such a friendly first encounter in Cairo. Isaac helped us with our luggage and through the passport control. 10/10 would recommend.

        Perfect welcome to Cairo
        My driver (Isaac) was excellent and made traveling into Cairo for the first time a breeze. I will book again when I am back next time.

        Professional & easy VIP greet, fun and interesting tour!
        Wow, I honestly cannot recommend this VIP service more! Isaac made the whole experience a total breeze. He met me before customs, helped me through the whole process and with my bags, drove me to my airbnb, even making sure I asked the host whether I would have water, and then stopped along the way to get some for me. He even helped with finding the building guard so I could check into the airbnb - I had to wait for a little bit while things got settled, and he waited with me and the building guard to help translate and figure everything out. I was so happy to hear that tours are offered through the same company, and we had a wonderful experience! My brother and I had a fantastic tour of the pyramids and sphinx, despite me asking about it rather last-minute! Our tour leader and driver Kyro was so funny and friendly, and even stopped to find us a delicious sugar cane drink, and then our tour guide Sarah was very knowledgeable, kind, and easy-going. They made our time so easy and fun! Although they did not ask for tips, I had heard about tipping custom in Egypt, so I decided to tip well to show that I appreciated the good experience! I definitely recommend both the VIP meet and greet -and- any tour that you want to do!

        GREAT service and made experience very easy! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
        Very very helpful for getting through customs and getting to where we needed to go. Issac was very communicative and gave great tips for things to do around the city. Kyro gave us a WONDERFUL experience when we visited the pyramids. Very personable and linked us up with Sarah the tour guide who was extremely knowledgeable and helpful while exploring. All in all, a fantastic experience I would highly recommend for anyone new or familiar with the area.

        Excellent overview of both ancient and modern Egypt
        Great museum! A little noisy, as the majority of the items exhibited are in one big room. Good signage, so a guided tour isn't necessary. The mummy collection was outstanding, but the rest of the museum was equally interesting. We spent about 2 hours, but could have stayed longer if we weren't still recovering from jet lag.

        Highly recommend! Safe and efficient!
        Isaac was great! The process was efficient and quick, which was much appreciated after such a long flight. Especially appreciated that Isaac pointed out sights on the way from the airport to the hotel, since it was my first time to Cairo. Highly recommend, especially for other solo female travelers!

        Highly recommended
        We booked VIP airport transfer, and Isaac met us as arranged despite our flight being two hours late! Thoroughly professional, arranged the visas and provided swift progress through passport check and baggage hall exit. Clean new car and wonderful local knowledge. Highly recommended!

        Dina was the best
        Our guide, Dina, was already waiting for us at the hotel before the pick up time, and took us to the highlights of Cairo. Her professional manner, knowledge, and flexibility made our trip extremely comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and time in Cairo. Many thanks.

        Fun, interesting and an enjoyable experience.
        Our guide (Gina) was very knowledgeable and I enjoyed learning more about Egyptian history. The tour was well organised and good value. The camel ride and museum were highlights. We got some excellent photos.

        Half day in old Cairo with kids
        Mario is a great Egyptologist! He took us to old Cairo and taught us all about the Orthodox churches there. He was great with both our kids, ages 2 and 8. Very responsible, kind knowledgeable, and fun. He picked a great local place for lunch too!

        Great pickup and visas for family with hotel transit
        Great pickup service. Our flight landed very early in the morning. When Isaac couldn't find us he called and texted to get ahold of me. (We were just slow because we had our 8 and 2 year old kids with us.) Once he found us, Isaac helped with visas and customs. He walked us to the transport he had arranged and ensured the driver knew where to take us. Isaac was on time, dependable, and trustworthy. Just what we needed!

        Professional and efficient
        Isaac was very professional and efficient with the service. Everything was smooth leaving the airport. The car was really nice. He also gave us a great overview of landmarks as we were driving to the hotel. Would absolutely recommend his services.
