As a bucket list destination, Cairo did not disappoint. Its definitely a place either for the very intrepid or else you must do it with a tour. That's what we did with my_great_Egypt_tours - Hamdy was terrific. Everything was well planned. He catered to all our needs and provided informative and humorous commentary which really added to the excursion. We spent 3 full days seeing all the sights; Cairo Museum, Saqqara and Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Hanging Church, the Bazzaar, and more. Hamdy was so attentive throughout, providing great tips and pointers especially whenever we were about to disembark from the safety of our air conditioned mini van into the hoards of hawkers and locals trying to make a buck. Also taking us to some sensational local restaurants for lunch (all included in the final price) and off the tourist track reputable local business' where we could buy some fabulous local art and genuine Egyptian wares.
All in all our thoroughly positive Egyptian taste was enjoyable because Hamdy and his crew took such great care of us for the entire time we were there, making it a truly memorable experience.

I’ve just returned from a long girls weekend in Cairo. Normally a person who very much follows a DIY approach to holidays … booking Hamdy was the best decision.

We were recommended Hamdy by a friend and true to her recommendation his English is impeccable. From initial contact prior to travelling through to meeting us each morning, Hamdy is punctual, reliable and incredibly knowledgeable.

I gave Hamdy a very open brief of “we want to see the best of Cairo” and I cannot fault the highlight package he put together for our three day trip. I discovered so much more of Cairo’s history including and beyond the ancient Egyptians. Everything on the itinerary was well thought out in terms of access and timings. Hamdy’s connections often saw us getting preferential treatment!

Being safely and calmly driven from site to site by Hamdy’s driver, Ramy, was for us the cherry on the cake. Hamdy truly went the extra mile sourcing specific refreshments (mango smoothies!) during our day.

I can’t wait to go back with the family, again with Hamdy. Final tip: if you go to the market and want reassurance you’re getting a good price - ask for Hamdy’s secret code!

I have just returned from a 3 night trip to Cairo with 2 friends (all female). We pre-booked Hamdy thanks to a recommendation from friends and it was the best decision!
We were met at the airport before immigration and treated like Pharaohs for the whole trip. The tour bus was comfortable and our fabulous driver Ramy ensured our safety at all times. We packed so much into our short time in Cairo thanks to Hamdy’s expert itinerary and care and had the most relaxing time exploring the Pyramids, Sphinx, Memphis, Sakkara, Citadel, Souk, Coptic Cairo, Egyptian Museum, Nile dinner cruise and more! Hamdy always offered us flexibility each day, educated us in a fun and engaging way and took us to delicious restaurants and the most incredible Mango smoothie stop off!
I can’t wait to return with the family to explore Luxor and more!

We spent a wonderful 4 days in Egypt with many thanks to My Great Egyptian Tours.After negotiating the content and price of a 4 day package we were placed in the hands of a very experienced guide whose knowledge of Egyptian culture and civilisation could not be surpassed. Our guide was also well known and well respected at all of the locations we visited which only enhanced our feeling of safety and confidence. We also had a very experienced and safe driver so we knew that we were in good hands.
We visited the Great Pyramids of Giza, Saqqora, Memphis, a full day in Alexandria, a dinner cruise on the Nile and many other historic sites around Cairo. There were so many breathtaking moments
If you are looking for a great Egyptian experience you cannot do better than My Great Egyptian Tours.

Listen guys please please use Hamdy for your guided visits around the sights of Egypt, don't bother with the rest Hamdy is the best!!
Hamdy organised everything for us! We told him what we wanted to see and he delivered on everything He said he can do, With a top class very reasonably priced service! He supplied us with a amazing driver Muhammad in a ice cold air con posh clean car and We where accompanied by our guide Zainab who was absolutely amazing she was so knowledgeable on the sights in Alexandria and always had time for our thousands of questions we bombarded her with and it was no trouble to her she was only to happy to help!! The pompey Tower the catucums and the citadel which where mind blowing we where also shown around the new library which wasn't our cup of tea but it was astonishing nevertheless, Our second day we where treated to the amazing pyramids at Saqqara and the imhotep temple and museum, this is a brilliant place well worth spending time at so much to see!! My opinion better than the pyramids at Giza, In the afternoon we where driving to Dahshur to see to more intact pyramids where my wife waited for me to take the exhausting but worth while climb in side the pyramid know as the white pyramid to see the ancient tomb where I took some once in a lifetime photo's, what else can I say about this man and he's company literally a real honest true man who made sure me and my wife where well looked after and made us feel safe at all times especially when he took us to a laid on lunch where we eat well and of our chioce. Very best regards Andy from the United Kingdom,!!!

Wonderful Egyptian tour experience! Hamdy and Ehmed created for us an authentic, tailored historical and cultural experience for our Cairo vacation. Even though we found them the day we arrived! (If you visit Cairo, PLEASE secure a reputable guide/service). We wanted for nothing. They took care of the issues that can often ruin an experience, eg protection from hagglers, provided cold bottled water at all times, and the trips to the 'WC' were planned out. Nice and clean. All questions were answered, no matter how obscure. They made us feel welcome and safe. I highly recommend 'My Great Egypt Tours' for your Cairo stop.

We hired Hamdy for a day in Cairo. He was excellent: friendly, funny, knowledgeable, speaks great English. He treats his customers like his personal guests. And if you’re in Giza and he tells you he is taking you to restaurant with the best chicken in the world, believe him — he’s telling the truth!

We booked a 4 day tour with Hamdy and we were very pleased. Hamdy truly offers world class service, he is very passionate about his work and ensuring that his guests are pleased during the tours. We enjoyed every minute of everything we got to do and see. Hamdy works very hard to ensure that all is well and that we stayed happy, he took us to amazing restaurants. Hamdy made us feel comfortable everywhere we went and we felt safe and well taken care of. If you want a good experience and amazing tour guide please contact Hamdy, he will take great care of you. He would even go the extra mile for example we wanted food at the Hotel and he would order it for us and it would deliver to the hotel, this is great especially for us not knowing the language, he is available any time of the day or night to ensure we stay happy. You will not regret booking a tour with him and his staff. He can create any tour you want and make it memorable and exciting. Message him on whatsapp +20 109 212 6000

We have just had a 3 day tour with Hamdy in Cairo, travelling as 3 ladies we have had the most hassle free, informative, enlightening and professional tour. As well as the pyramids we have explored other areas of Cairo that I was not expecting. Handy has been a wonderful host, always punctual, patient and professional in conduct at the various sites. I will definitely be recommending Hamdy and his team to others. Special mention to Rammy the driver, an immaculately kept van and careful driving.

We did the Step Pyramid, Cemetery of Memphis, and The Great Pyramids of Giza all in one day with a private tour guide. They drove us in a private car that was air conditioned. All the prices were included which entailed all entry fees, lunch, and water at the end of the tour. Our tour guide even helped bargain a lower price for a camel ride! We found them through Trip Advisor and would highly recommend! I felt very safe and comfortable with them and would gladly book them again for another tour in Egypt. :)
