Great variation to stay in Cairo

This tour is a great variation to your stay in Cairo as this city has a different atmosphere and different type of sites. And a day trip felt like the right amount of time for me, not too long but also enough. Hala was a great guide and customized the tour for me to include more historical sites.

Great day! Lots of sites to take in. Heba was great and so was our driver. They were lots of fun.
I did feel a bit rushed as I like a bit more time to explore.
Heba went above and beyond and even took us to an oil shop that was not part of our itinerary.
We had s very enjoyable trip
