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.

We completed a half day tour with Emad, visiting the Great Pyramids, the Papyrus Museum, and the Citadel / Mosque of Muhammad Ali. Emad was a fantastic guide, he knows the history extremely well and we appreciated his candidness. He also made the experience easy and fun for us - picking us up, facilitating the camel ride, and providing great suggestions! We had a great time with Emad, and would recommend his tour to any friend visiting Egypt!

We did the half day tour and saw the Pyramids, Sphinx, Citadel and Mosque of Muhammad Ali. Our guide was so trustworthy, treated us so well while we were with him, was incredibly knowledgeable of the history, and willing to teach us about the culture in Cairo answering any questions we had. We felt like we were so lucky to find this service to make our Cairo trip so incredibly memorable. Would highly recommend. They pick you up at your hotel, so you don't need to worry about anything - and do all the negotiation for you (camel rides at the pyramids, buying waters, etc.) so that you get the best price. We never felt pressured into anything and really enjoyed our time in Cairo!!

Emad and Hamdy treated us like valued guests to their country. Very interested in showing us the sites of our interests allowing plenty of time on our own to explore the various venues. They love their work and will provide you with a great experience along with sharing many stories about the history and culture of the great country. You can count on getting preferred deals at most of the sites through their connections than you would without their guidance. You can trust them to treat you like family and we highly recommend their services!

A true historical adventure back in time, to the cradle of civilization. Egypt is nothing like anywhere else in the world! We were taken on the journey of a lifetime by a team of wonderful people, who are some of the most intelligent, friendly and hospitable guides you'll ever meet! Who all go above and beyond to ensure your safety and satisfaction while sharing their passion for culture and architecture with you. Brilliant. I never wanted it to end. I will be back to see more of Egypt and will never book anyone but My Great Egypt tours. Thankyou for the incredible experience and memories. See you soon.
