We traveled by land from Eilat to Giza and Nora met us for our one day tour. For such a short time, Nora planned an thorough itinerary- pyramids, sphinx, museum, souk shopping - and provided excellent commentary and historical information. And her personal touch and vibrant personality made it all the more enjoyable. I highly recommend her.

I used Nora for a day trip to see Cairo and Giza highlights. The pyramids, Sphinx, old churches and the Egyptian museum. Nora was informative, courteous and turned up on time to pick up from my accommodation.

Everything went very smoothly and I had a great 6 hours trip from start to finish with a private driver and Nora as my tour guide. Highly recommend. Thanks Nora

Nora was my guide, I only have positive things to say about her. She was so knowledgeable I even mentioned she was like a walking google when it comes to the history of ancient Egypt. I enjoyed the tour a lot and highly recommend it to others. Thank you Nora.

I’ve traveled to 30+ countries in the last 15 years and always believe in the importance of having a guide. Noura was truly the best guide that I’ve ever had. My husband and I had such an amazing experience in Cairo thanks to the personal, intimate tour that Noura provided for us. We spent three days with her and toured the Pyramids, Sphinx, Memphis, Saqqara, Egyptian Museum, The Citadel, Coptic Cairo... she took us everywhere! I’ve been to the Egyptian Museum before on a guided tour, but Noura pointed out different artifacts and I learned much more information than I had before. Her insight definitely helps in the Egyptian Museum with the overwhelming collection. We felt like she showed us an excellent sample of the best of Egypt’s treasures.

Noura also took us to Khan El Khalili, and asked what we were looking for. This thoughtful question helped her to take us to a shop that had exactly what we were looking for, and helped us not be overwhelmed by the bazaar. Noura ensured that everything we purchased was of the highest quality, and also that we got a good bargain. We never once felt like she was trying to take us to a “friend” or help us spend our money, and trust me, that’s happened to me on several occasions by guides! On one occasion we wanted a car from the travel agency to go out for an unplanned excursion that evening. After making some calls to help us organize it, she told us in all honesty it would be cheaper for us to just take an Uber, and this recommendation easily saved us $50. It was evident that she truly wanted us to have the most perfect, memorable experience.

I am a photographer, and we traveled with a tripod to get the best pictures of my husband and me. Noura took us to the best photo spots on each of our excursions and always helped us procure the photography ticket.

Noura is thoughtful, knowledgable, and personable. We immediately felt at ease with her, and had great conversations with her the entirety of the trip. She gave us the true local’s perspective on Egypt and Cairo, which is much more than anyone could possibly learn self guided, or traveling with a large tour group.

Paying for a personal guide for just my husband and I was probably the best money we’ve ever spent while traveling. Yes, in the modern age it is easy to pull up apps or travel books to try and self guide, but I can guarantee that the experience could never compare.

I will definitely be recommending Noura to all of my friends, and as soon as the new Egyptian Museum opens I hope to go back to Cairo for another excellent tour by Noura!

We had the best time with Noura she was knowledgeable and funny and such a pleasure to tour with! We had 2 Egyptians and one American and she went back and forth from Arabic to English with ease! She also took amazing photos for us. We booked her for all our tour needs while in Egypt - don’t book anywhere else!

We had a very good time with Noura. It was a short but fulfilling trip, we travelled to Cairo, Hurghada & Luxor. She explained all the history of the different places to us. Her command of English is very good, hence communication and explanation were all very clear. Will definitely recommend her as a tour guide for Egypt.

I had initially booked a half-day tour of Cairo's churches with Nora. She was great: knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. I called Nora back a couple of days later to inquire about a dinner-cruise on the Nile with my colleagues - next thing we knew, she took care of everything! She made the reservations, coordinated with a driver (Hossam is the best!) and even arranged for a cake and flowers for a colleague who was celebrating a birthday that night! She was always available when we had questions or inquired about activities and she was very helpful and fair in providing us with options and prices. My colleagues booked more sightseeing tours with her and they were happy with all their activities. I highly recommend Nora and will definitely book her for other tours if I am ever back in Cairo! Thank you, Nora!

How do I begin? Let me start off by saying Nora was AMAZING! If your looking for a tour guide that makes you feel like you’re being shown around Cairo by a distant relative, Nora is your girl. Nora is a true professional, she is punctual, she is very respectful and polite at all times, extremely knowledgeable in Egyptian history answering all questions without a pause, she was my photographer and didn’t complain once regardless how many times we took the same shot, and most importantly, Nora really makes you feel special. Nora has such a beautiful soul, her energy and passion for her work makes you feel that every moment is magical. Even after the tour was over, Nora helped me find places to eat for my dinner. Nora is an amazing person and I am so happy I met her. Thank you so much, Nora. You made my trip to Egypt something special 😊.

If you want to have a great time without the guessing of transportation, safety, or getting haggled to death all while learning the TRUE history of Cairo and Giza... then Nora is the way to go! She was punctual, factual and very entertaining. She even knows all the great places to take epic shots (see photos below) and the absolute best restaurants. Nora made us feel welcomed, cultured and by the end of the trip exhausted lol. She definitely makes sure you have an amazing time. She even defends you from the hagglers that will surely try to persuade you into buying just about everything. Her knowledge of Egypt and its history is like watching a very thorough documentary and reading a history book all at the same time. You’ll feel like you’re with your very smart yet fun best friend. I loved my time spent with her and her driver. I laughed, I learned and most importantly I had a great time! I wish I could just fold her up and put her in my pocket her for the entire time im here...Book her you will not be disappointed.

P.s. the perfume shop is EVERYTHING! The prices are great and the people are also very professional and know their stuff.

I had an amazing experience with my tour guide Nora. She explained the historical and religious significance of each site in detail, and took the time to answer all of my many questions carefully. Nora went above and beyond to explain rules that are not obvious to a visitor (such as when it is ok to take photos). She also was happy to give me recommendations for restaurants and museums in Cairo and sent me a detailed list of the names of all the sites we visited. I highly recommend Nora as a tour guide!!
