Superb experience! Or how to discover the essentials of Cairo in two days ... Jasmin, French-speaking, was an excellent guide to make us discover on a 1st day the Egypt of the Pharaohs: Memphis, Saqqara, the Valley of the Kings, Keops ... all this with a high level of historical knowledge, great precision, attention. The 2nd day we dedicated it to Cairo with the Citadel of Salaheddine, the Mosque of Mohamed Ali, obviously the Egyptian Museum to finish by the souks. If between the two you add a dinner cruise on the Nile, which also offers a quality show, you will have very quickly covered all that this city and its region can offer. Another special mention to our very professional guide Jasmin and to Karim, a punctual, careful, attentive and pleasant driver.

the wonderful experience I had during 3 days spent with the guide Mohammed. we felt safe all the time and not evenfor a moment I did'nt fel like doing this as a debit but as a passion. I warmly recommended this trip. I visited more goals than presented. Thousands of thanks.

The tour was great. In particular, the second day with my guide Ossama in Alexandria was great. The first day had elements that resembled a coffee trip. Unfortunately, the PLV does not fit with bus transport between Hurghada and Cairo and back.

Very good alternative. I had a spectacular guide, who enriched me with many interesting facts about ancient Cairo; and he accompanied me on the cruise on the Nile, making a very entertaining tour with a fairly pleasant meal.

This experience was just INCREDIBLE really, I have no other, words I lived a daydream, the guide was awesome, my dream is to achieve, THANKS SO MUCH
