Guide for Cairo

Hi guys,

I was planning on visiting Cairo in July, and I was wondering if anybody could suggest a good guide to hire, to drive around some more popular sites?

I was thinking about visiting obviously the pyramids, as well as Saqqara and Memphis.

Could this trip be done in a day??

Thanks

Nick

Yeah that's one full day, leaving you time for dinner or music or the bazar in town after dark. (sorry, don't know guides)

Yup, easily done on a single day and doable on your own if you wanted.

Go to the top of this page and click on 'things to do' then 'activities'. There you will find reviews on tour companies and guides.

Personally I can recommend Mohamed Bahaa as an excellent guide. I used him in January for Saqqara and Dashur and found him to be so good that I am going back to Cairo for a longer trip in February next year. Any questions, you can PM me.

Giza Pyramids plus Saqqara/Memphis can easily be done in a day. Note: there's not much to see in Memphis, but Saqqara is full of interesting sights. Personally, I'd skip Memphis altogether & take more time in Saqqara.

I've had a few guides in Egypt, & almost all of them were good. But the one who surpassed them all was Mohamed ElShaer. I highly recommend him. His e-mail is midobluesky@hotmail.com
