Our group of 4 had 3 customized tours with Real Egypt - 2 were one day tours in Cairo and the 3rd was a 4 day tour around Luxor. The guides were all very well informed and friendly. All details were planned and handled efficiently. Would definitely recommend Real Egypt Tours to others.

I have had guests from Canada visiting Cairo and originally wanted to fit some interesting sights including Pyramids, Coptic Egypt, and finally Khan El Khalily, ending at Al-Azhar park. Our tour guide, Dalia, was so dynamic and knowledgeable and told us about many other interesting sights. We have had great time at the pyramids, and in our way to our... More

Had an outstanding trip to Siwa Oasis over our March break, coordinated by Samir from Real Egypt. We visited many historical sites around the area and at each, Samir had so many stories and details to share it really brought the area and this history to life for us. We also spent plenty of time just relaxing in the local... More

I can easily say that this was the best day of our trip!! Our guide, Yasmine, was wonderful! She taught us about the history at each site and throughout Cairo and Giza. We shared a traditional Egyptian lunch! It was delicious! We covered so many areas in one day and learned so much. The timing of each arrival was perfect!... More

We have just returned from a fantastic trip to Siwa with Samir and Real Egypt. We travelled as a family of five- three adults and two young children (aged 5 and 2). Everything was taken care of from the moment we left Cairo. Accommodation, food and activities were perfect. Samir went above and beyond every day to give us the... More

I contacted Samir after booking our flight and hotel to Cairo and asked if he would arrange us to have a guide, and he certainly came through for us. Our guide Yasmeen has a Egyptology degree, and is well versed in not only the ways of ancient Egypt but also current events. Our tour included Coptic Cairo, The Step Pyramid,... More

Yesterday, I spent the morning with Samir on Golden Island with my in-laws. A short ride across the Nile and you enter a village and taking you back several decades. Beautiful smiles from the locals greeted us as we walked through the small farming village located in the middle of a huge city and in the center of the Nile... More

Real Egypt also has a sister company called Real Sudan, which under the leadership of Samir, organises excellent tours to Sudan. North Sudan, which was home to the ancient kingdom of Kush, also offers wonderful and interesting ancient sites, including some magnificent temples and pyramids built by the Kushites. Sudan, in fact, has more pyramids than Egypt. The Kushite kings... More

From the minute we got off the plane with Waleed holding a sign waiting for us, to the very end where he sped us through outgoing customs, for two full weeks everything ran smoothly and we were pampered. Samir, the owner, called/texted us several times during the trip to check in. Our main Egyptologist guides, Dahlia in the north and... More

We had a fantastic morning with Samir, first walking through a very lively Friday market and then wandering through the quiet south quarter of the City of the Dead. Samir gave us lots of very interesting information and guided us through the narrow alleys that go in between the tombs! We visited the interior of various mausoleums that have been... More
