Fantastic Day tour of Alexandria with Emad G and driver Mohamed!!
Had an incredible day touring the beautiful city of Alexandria! I was picked up from my hotel on time by Emad and Mohamed. We took a road trip ( about 3 hrs) to Alexandria. On the way, Emad was giving me a history lesson of Egypt as a whole. Upon arrival at Alexandria, we first visited the Catacombs, the underdogs tombs from the 1st century. It was amazing to see all the holes and sight. Emad gave a wonderful detailed history of the tombs and the era. Afterwards, we visited the Greek Roman Theatre, which is the only Greek Roman theatre in Egypt. It was a beautiful site as well as the mosaic beside it. Afterwards, we visited the Sain Mark Cathedral, which was the first Coptic Christian church established in Egypt and Africa as a whole. It was a great sight to see that! Afterwards, stopped at an authentic seafood restaurant in the city and had some delicious food. The city is highly known for its seafood. Lastly, we visited the citadel, which was an amazing site! The photos of the site looked very nice and and the history was very interesting! Emad did a great job explaining the history behind the citadel. I highly recommend Emad as a tour guide!! You will not be disappointed !

Incredible Guided Day Trip to Alexandria
We booked a last minute (11:30pm the night before) guided trip to Alexandria from Cairo after plans with a local friend fell through- and the trip by far exceeded our expectations! Shortly after booking the trip, I received text confirmation of the plan for the morning. The driver (Ahmed) arrived promptly at the scheduled time at our hotel lobby with a smile and a great attitude. We picked up our Egyptologist guide (Ehab) on the way out of town to Alexandria. They quickly made us feel comfortable on the drive out of Cairo. We arrived in Alexandria after about 2.5hrs and the day started from there- Catacombs, Pillar an Babylon, Citadel, a great seafood lunch and finally the Alexandria Library. The day could not have run smoother and both Ahmed and Ehab made sure we were comfortable and well taken care of the whole day. I would recommend this trip to anyone who is interested in seeing some amazing sites in Alexandria but only has a day to do it. It would not have been possible to do it without a driver and guide, and Ahmed and Ehab were the perfect combination! They were both extremely friendly and professional from start to finish! Thank you guys!

Excellent adventure
The tour was a great way to spend a layover in Cairo. The tour guide Karim was excellent- his expertise and passion for Egyptology clearly shows. He was personable and took time to answer all my questions. I learnt a lot and feel like I got to see a side of Cairo and Giza I wouldn't have seen on my own. Would highly recommend.

The excursion to the pyramid
One of the best if not the best tours my fiancé and I have taken . Emad G was our tour guide and he was amazing . He made us feel welcomed and safe anywhere we went. His knowledge in the history of Egypt was really good and his photography skills !! He even was a witness to our engagement in Egypt ! Ahmed was incredible as well , made us feel as if we were driving with our own family members . We were dancing to music , laughing the whole time , such a great company to be with ! I def recommend asking for Emed and Ahmed !

Egypt Tours, transportation, and accommodations
This excursion was exceptional and we were very pleased with the historical information provided by our tour guide. My representative Mikael Sherif was very accommodating as he was in constant contact with me to ensure that my visit and tours were meeting our expectations. The driver to all sites was very pleasant and timely. Ahmad was very conscientious of our time and ensured prompt arrival to our sites. Thanks for everything! Nigel

Guided tour to Pyramids of Giza, Sphinx, Sakkara and Memphis
Although we had a good day out, this tour definitely didn't live up to expectation. It gets a pass mark from me but has some serious work to do. I would consider paying a bit more and going with someone else. Pros: - Only paid $55 USD for this tour for two people (excluding admissions and tips) which was the cheapest we could find - Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and we visited all the sites we intended to visit. Cons: - Our guide was quite forceful in making us submit a review before he had actually finished the tour. This made us feel very uneasy. We made an initial review (5 stars) but since feel the need to change our review to better refelct our experience. I would take this company's overall rating with a grain of salt as I am sure we are not the only people to feel this way when pressed to make a review before being dropped at our hotel - We were taken to a papyrus museum and a bazaar. We were also told we would be taken to a perfume shop and an Egyptian cotton factory but we told our guide we werent interested. Considering we didn't get to walk around either the second or third pyramids and finished our tour earlier than expected it was a shame that our time was spent visiting these places. - We did not stop for lunch. When we arrived in Memphis we were told that our only option was a $15 USD barbeque. This was a) expensive by Egyptian standards and b) confusing as we were told the price from our guide before selecting what to eat. When we asked our guide if there was an alternative he said there was none and that we would have to wait until we got back to Giza. This may have been true (although I doubt it) but we would have preferred to know this before driving all the way to Memphis. We finished the tour at 3:30pm very hungry. -

Cairo - Aswan - Luxor driver an private guide 5* all the way
We decided to use Hesham’s services for our full week in Egypt. We booked our entire trip from Canada without knowing much about the sites. I trusted Hesham 100% and are so greatful that we dealt with Hesham and his team. From emails at 4Am his time ...... he has been available all the way. At each airport pickup - the driver was on time. We had a different guide for each region and again professional and very knowledgeable- seriously - I’ve never seen someone so devoted and trustworthy. I recommend Hesham and him and his team are in my heart - a lot of respect. I will be the best advocate and trust that my review will help anyone reading this. If you have any questions -Let me know. I’m here ..... Finally - I requested French guides and he made it happen. We did Cairo - Giza - Memphis - Sakara 5* - great driver Amhed Aswan- Abu Simbel - Philae ....again 5* guide and such a good and patient driver Karim Luxor - west and east bank - and the hot air balloon! All the best Hesham ! Lyne and Robert

Excellent tour company
Such an informative tour, with a lot of history at the museum and Old Cairo. Our guide, Emad was very attentive to the group’s needs. He gave us a great explanation of the different ancient Egyptian kingdoms and also allowed us some time to take photos and explore. I have had a great experience with this company through multiple tours and I can’t recommend them enough.

Amazing Tour!!!
Karim and Ahmed and are great, very friendly. I refresh and gained on my knowledge of achent Egypt whist having a good laugh. It was a little too focused on the shopping aspect for use but, overall a great chance to try out a varity of activities in the short space of time we had in Cairo.

Jam packed fun day; very enjoyable.
Carim and Ahmet were great tour guides very friendly and funny. Had lots of fun at the pyramids got to do all the things I wanted to achieve in the one day we had to visit Cairo before moving location (in Egypt for a friends wedding). The information relating to the pyramids was interesting and engaging, the pyramid and camel ride were well priced. Getting taken to places to see traditional Egyptian crafts was great, the men that made our certouche was welcoming and friendly. Enjoyed seeing the process. The only slight issue, was that near the end the focus on shopping and buying stuff started to feel a bit forced. Became less about learning new stuff and more about shopping. Overall a very positive experience and exactly what me and my sister were looking for.
