Thank you for making our last day in Cairo hassle free. Our driver was great and he made sure that all our needs were met to the best of his ability. The vehicle was comfortable and the company ensured that we got an English speaking driver which made communication so much easier.

Mina our driver was the best person I could possibly ask for. He provided knowledge, interacted and helped with everything. Will definitely use this again when I next visit. Big thanks to the main man Mina

Our driver Tolma was so much more, he also acted as our guide and gave us excellent advice. Professional, personable, kind and very skilled at driving. Excellent! I highly recommend it.
