professional, private, personalised, and absolutely informative yet entertaining... ask for Ehab as we did...

We were lucky with our tour guide Ehab, he has made my husband look forward to and enjoy the museum trip (which is unknowingly a huge feat for Ehab and a first for my husband as he absolutely HATED the very concept of visiting one).. the whole tour has been this way, informative, interesting, entertaining and more so personalised...

Aside from gaining knowledge and visiting well known sites (even one that isn't known to most tourists), we were looking forward to experience life as locals do and see where and how real life is away from tourism facades... Ehab understood and appreciated our sincerity
and he made sure we did...

He made sure we drove around areas where we the homeless live, where lower and working class do and helped us understand that despite difficulty, there is no desperation, only Egyptian strength and stubbornness to live and thrive... Kudos to Islam our driver who managed to drive though impossibly narrow alley ways dodging donkey carts, tuktuks and what not without a single scratch... Ehab made sure we had coffee as locals have them, roadside refreshing drink (carob) and lunch ( we have asked to try a camel dish together which he made sure we did)...

We felt the hospitality and warmth of everyone... from the coffee shop owner, the carob juice peddler, camel shop owner who ran off to get the freshest ingredients prepared and cooked (by Mustafa infront of us) and the locals around who were surprised to see unconventional tourists choosing to enjoy lunch as everyone does, they would smile and acknowledge yet mind their own tasks and leave us to enjoy our own... the tour is such a beautiful experience in its entirety...

Tour companies are everywhere (and we have tried a lot everywhere), unfortunately, Ehab's warmth and understading isn't... Ehab felt like family and he made sure to impart the best of what egypt can offer.. knowledge, antiquities and warmth...
Good tour

Our guide Ehab and driver Ahmed were simply amazing ! Flexible and very compétent. Ehab answered to all the questions we asked on egyptian history with extreme competence and clarity. We have learned so many things and we are very happy and satisfied of our tour. A warm thanks to Ehab.
Fun and educational

I had Mina as my tour guide and he was so knowledgeable on the history of Cairo, he was kind, respectful and was a great experience. Thank you.
Great history lesson of civilisation.

All was great. Our guide Ehab was informative and concise in giving us an understanding of Ancient Egypt. We did a lot and throughout our time he was willingly answering our questions (some repeated) and always remained energetic. He never coaxed us into going to places we didn't want and really made us feel we were principally directing our tour which is how every private tour should be. Our driver Hussine was excellent too dropping is off and picking us up as close with safety in mind to the places we were visiting. His driving was also very good, safe and no one got car sick. My highlight was Islamic Cairo and visiting the Citadel of Salahudin and the mosque of Muhammad Ali. My eldest daughters highlight was visiting the museum's and learning about the Pharaohs and the mummification process.
Very interesting tour. Maybe could have been a bit longer

The tour with Ehab was very interesting. He gave me a lot of information about coptic and Islamic cairo as well as Egypt in general. Mostafa also got us around safely, which is not easy in cairo...

I didn't want to go to the museum as I had already been, so the tour was quite short, just three hours rather than eight, for the same price, but this wasn't Ehab's fault. He did ask me if there were other things I wanted to see, but I couldn't think of anything as I have done most of the highlights.
Fantastic experience!!!

The whole experience was very good. Ahmed was our guide and he came in with a lot of experience and knowledge! I was travelling with my aged parents and 4 year old daughter and he ensured that we were are all comfortable throughout! Kudos to Ahmed and team!
