Our tour guide was very nice and accommodating. He was knowledgeable about all local Egyptian foods and knew exactly where to take us. we felt safe and in good hands. There was a bit of miscommunication about the pick up time and although we where on time in the hotel lobby the driver did not know I was the client because he did not understand English and then left informing the local travel agency that we where not there. They made up for the misunderstanding by dropping us off with at our new hotel destination.

The pickup was very punctual. Our driver got us safely through the Cairo traffic and to our destination. Our tour guide Ali was a very polite and very personable companion who took us to Egyptian restaurants and informed us in detail about Egyptian cuisine. Very delicious food and the inimitable atmosphere made this trip unforgettable. Definitely worth it.

With Zizoú we did a food tour in Cairo Downtown, with 5 stations. He was a wonderful host and explained the various typical dishes very personally and brought us closer. We are pleased that Zizoú took care of us, which made the tour special.

Definitely worth a try to experience the city centre and try the local, authentic Egyptian cuisine. The portions are large, so go hungry.

Nice tour, punctual pick-up, we really liked the food.
