Me and my father did the tour to the coptic and islamic cairo with yousef and it was a great experience from beginning to end. Our guide, yousef was very nice and polite, you felt very comfortable with him. In addition, he is a knowledgeable guide, he told us the history, meaning, acquisition of each sight and always answered our questions. He showed us the hanging church from inside and outside, St. George's church, Church of St Sergius and Bacchus also from inside. The Ibn-Tulun-Mosque, the bazar in Kairo. In the curches you have to wear the face mask but you can still enter them. Only the St. George’s church wasn‘t opened because of COVID 19. The Tour is very interesting and it is definetly worth it. The driver has driven us from place to place, so we could relax and talk in the car till we arrive to the next stop. Very cool. We would surely recommend Youssef as a tourguide. We had a lot of fun and learned so much about Kairo !

Excellent day tour organized by Yousef and conducted by Sharif. I was there with my spouse and two children. Planning: we were only in Cairo for about 18 hours on a layover, and wanted to see at least the Egyptian Museum and Pyramids, as well as being getting transportation to/from the airport and a hotel for the day. I found Cecilia Tours on TripAdvisor and decided to try based upon reviews. Contacted Yousef via email and he was very prompt in his responses, in particular compared to other tour groups I contacted as well. I told Yousef my situation and what I wanted to see and he was able to tailor a private tour to meet my needs, at what I thought was a reasonable price. Closer to the date of arrival, I was able to connect with Yousef via WhatsApp, and again, found the commutations clear and prompt. Arrival: I got on WhatsApp in the airport upon arrival, and Yousef was outside and told us where to go meet him. It was quick and easy even though we didn’t know each other. By the way, there were so many people approaching us to give rides, I was very happy we arranged this ahead of time. Yosef took us for a short walk down to his van, we met the driver, and they took us to our hotel (Marriott Mena House). Van was spacious and clean. Driver didn’t speak much English, but that was fine - the drive was comfortable and safe. I think the ride was about 45 minutes to an hour, which was expected. Tour: picked up at the hotel by Sharif and the driver. Sharif was waiting for us in the lobby. Got back in the van with the same driver and we headed off to the Egyptian Museum. We were dropped off out front of the museum. Tickets to the museum was extra for this tour, but We gave Sharif the money (Egyptian) and he bought on our behalf, so that was easy, and then he ushered us in there quickly. In the museum, we probably spent and 2 to 2.5 hours, and Sharif was a great guide in there. He brought us to all the highlights, explaining key things about them as we were going. He was also great about taking photos of us. While I’m sure you could spend many more hours there, we found this brief tour to be just right for us. What was nice was that Sharif was totally flexible - he kept asked if we want more or less time, and he moved at a pace that suited us. If we would have wanted more time there, I expect we would have done that. After the museum, we headed over to the pyramids, which was very close to our hotel. again, driver dropped us off by the main entrance where we got our tickets and we began to walk around. Sharif asked if we wanted to go into the big pyramid, which we decided not too, and we instead just climbed a little up the side of it (I don’t think you are allowed to go high, but you can go a few big stones up, which was fun). We also went in one of the smaller pyramids (me an older teenage son). It’s a steep walk down, there really wasn’t too much to see, but happy I did it, although I would not recommend it if you are not in reasonable shape, are big/tall, or have any mobility constraints. Once we walked around a bit, the driver picked us up and took us took a look out area where you can see all three pyramids in a room - a nice view for some photos. After that, the driver took us over to the Sphinx, where Sharif walked us around, explained details about it and took some photos. I think this who part is the tour took about 2 hours and we were back at the hotel I think by 4:00 pm. Sharif was planning to take us to a papyrus manufacturing place after the museum, but were tired and preferred to just save our energy for the pyramids, and Sharif was flexible to adjust that tour which we appreciated. His motto seemed to be - just tell me what you want to do, and we’ll do it. We found Sharif very friendly and knowledgeable and we’re pleased to have the day with him. My only suggestion for the tour would be that we didn’t have lunch - it wasn’t part of the tour (and we knew that), although we’re we asked if we wanted to go for it. It would have been good if the tour could have included a simple bagged lunch to keep us energized, like a sandwich and fruit while we were driving. If we had more time and energy, we may have even enjoyed a quick sit down lunch (assuming it was quick and not too expensive). Post tour and back to the airport: Yousef and the driver picked us up at the hotel about 7:00pm and drove us back to the airport- it was probably a 1 hour drive. Again, everything was on time and clearly communicated. Yousef texted me when he was on the way, reminded me not to forget things, helped us with our bags. Overall summary: Day went just as I hoped. Yousef and Sharif were very warm and friendly- they did a great job to always make us feel welcome, safe and comfortable. Communication was clean and always prompt. I really appreciated the flexibility in tailoring the day to what we wanted and needed, as opposed to doing things that were on a standard tour. And most importantly, we felt safe and their genuine friendliness was second to none. They will make you want to visit Egypt again. Would I recommend or do it again: Yes!

I and my friends decided to use services of Cecilia tours Egypt ,to browse the pyramids area and Sphinx We thought it will be a few hours in in the dust not to miss such a wonder of the world, yet we were surprised by the knowledge of our guide Ahmed Joseph !! Ahmed was far beyond our expectations, a walking encyclopedia, so professional, caring, friendly, and made us feel so at home and most welcomed almost everyone knew him very popular guide we took not only amazing photos and memories of our tour But also a piece of Egypt with us back home. It was such an unforgettable beautiful experience, we are definitely going back to Egypt for more and we highly recommend Cecilia Egypt tours and Ahmed , They demonstrated (True Love ) of their wonderful Egypt.
