“Best layover ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

We booked this tour on our Cairo layover from our winter holiday. We were about an hour and a half delayed coming in in the afternoon. Our guide, Maha, met us in the airport just as we had been told by email in advance. Maha spoke very good english, offered to take photos of the two of us at every stop (really nice!), and provided a lot of history with the various parts of Cairo we visited. She had multiple options for what we should do considering that we were arriving late. Throughout the day she continued to give us options as to where we wanted to go next. It was great because, having known each other a few hours it would be impossible for her to know what kind of sightseers we are. I have hired guides before in new cities but none have been so helpful. I would definitely recommend this tour to friends and family.

“One Great Day Tour at Cairo, Egypt”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

Excellent communication from the beginning! Everything was as promised and offered much more than we agreed, although everything was arranged in a very short time! Both the tour guide and the driver were friendly as well as Mr Bahaa when we met him! Real professionals!!! I will definitely recommend!! We had a great day and be sure that next time we visit Egypt we will call you!!!

“Really a great company”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

After we didn't show up for our scheduled pickup time (due to a late Turkish Airlines flight with a missed connection), Mohammed still took us back! He contacted us by email asking if we were okay, and then when we had our hotel call him, he was courteous, and seemed genuinely happy we were safe. Mohammed then met us i person at our hotel (which he normally doesn't do), and then took us out for lunch at the Khan Al-Kalil tourist market for falafel pitas and shisha. He didn't ask for any compensation and he and his fellow guide were very informative about Cairo and Egyptian culture. He then let us do the Sound and Light show at the pyramids/Sphinx and picked us up across the street after the show had finished. Again, he did all of this complimentary, we only paid for the show! We began our regular tour the next day and everything was great! After all the hassle we put him through, Mohamed was still so helpful and he knows the value of good customer service and good first impressions.

Thank you Mohamed. I would definitely recommend you to anyone wanting to travel Egypt, Istanbul, or Jordan.

“Great Cairo tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

We pre-booked a tour a couple of weeks before our 13 hour layover in Cairo and it was a great experience. The email correspondence was quick and efficient and upon arrival (1 hour delayed), our tour guide Maha was waiting for us and we quickly were in the car and on our way to the pyramids. At the pyramids, we were only one of a few tourists so we could easily make our way around and were able to take some great photos. Maha was very knowledgeable about the history of Egypt and cairo (and a good photographer as well). We then headed to the Khan El-kahlely market for a bit of shopping and wandering. As the only tourists in the market, we got quite a bit of attention from the shop keepers but what do you expect when there are no tourists in the city. we met a nice shop keeper down a narrow alley and ended up chatting and buying a lamp and picking up his card for any future purchases. After a quick stop in the square for tea and mint lemonade and fresh grilled sweet potatoes and a chat about life, we walked through the Islamic section of town and saw some amazing mosques and forts that were nicely lit at night. we picked up a delicious falafel sandwich on the way to the airport and all I can say is that it was a great day. At no point did we ever feel unsafe, our driver was fantastic, and everyone in town seemed to just be carrying on with their daily activities. I highly recommend Mohamed Bahaa tours.

“Absolutely completely happy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

What a great day!
We had a long stop-over in Cairo on our way to South Africa and wanted to make the most of it. It made so much sense to book a car and guide and we are so happy we did so. Having travelled in Egypt before we could have managed on our own, but it simply would not have been the same. Hoda was waiting for us at the airport at 5 O'clock in the morning, and throughout the whole day, she just kept going! Not only were we taken to everywhere we hoped, in comfort and style, but we also enjoyed Hoda's enthusiastic commentary and background information.
Driving around and stopping for felafels right in the center of Cairo, we couldn't have felt safer. there was no hint of trouble, which just goes to show the vast difference between what you read in the news and what you see on the ground.
Visiting Dahshur, as well as Giza and then also being able to stroll through Khan El Kahlili in the evening was certainly a packed day, but it leaves us with plenty of plans for our next visit, which we hope will be soon.
Cairo (and Egypt as a whole) is such a perfect place to take kids, and using Mohamed Bahaa to organize it all just made it easy and enjoyable. The children were fascinated throughout the whole day, and came back to school buzzing with excitement about ancient Egypt.
I can't really make a strong enough recommendation for families to travel this way!
