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.

Ahmed was the perfect host during our dinner on the Nile cruise ! He picked us up early because we asked if we could possibly stop somewhere before dinner. He was able to take us to that place then still made it on time for the dinner. He was so kind and gracious. He waited with us while we ate our dinner, helped us take pictures and just made sure we had an overall good time. This was the best experience ever !

We had a very nice and educational day, the guide was very nice and gave us a lot of his knowledge about the history of Egypt without overwhelming us, the driver was very professional and safely brought us to all the excursion destinations all day; especially Lunch was good and varied. In the evening we enjoyed the boat trip with dinner; the guide was also nice and helpful.
