A fabulous day spent with a very knowledgeable passionate Egyptologist Amina . She knew so much and I could tell she loved her job !
This private tour guides you through all the key features for the Egyptian museum ! It would be very difficult to do without a guide. You have to pay for an extra ticket to use your camera in the museum, but Amina did all the queuing in the hot sun we just wondered around the grounds of the museum taking photos .
The lunch was a buffet style , on a boat that did a 30 min cruise up the Nile whilst your eating.
The rest of the day was spent between the citadel and the famous khan bazaar!!
Great day out, highly recommend!!

The Tree of Life Tours with our guide Rashdaa Del Mohamed (and driver Mohamed) was great. She speaks both English & Spanish fluently. We loved the historical info she gave us plus the information on current affairs. The Citadel was impressive, the Bazaar was interesting, and Egyptian Museum included King Tut! We would book this again (very safe).

Just finished one of the absolute best tours I have ever done.

Ashraf our guide for the day showed us the pyramids of Giza. The bazaar the sphinx we had a camel ride and an absolutely delicious lunch and the finished up at the Cairo museum what a fantastic day

Ashraf was polite funny and extremely knowledgeable about everything with excellent English

I wish we could take him with us for the rest of our tour of Egypt.

Ps his driver Yafa. Was also absolutely brilliant and very funny

Thank you so much for making our day in Cairo so special

We had Ashraf as a guide through Tree of Life and I have to say that he was very knowledgeable about the subject! He has been guiding for over 20 years and goes into depth on every question we asked! He also got us one of the best shawarma we've ever had. Make sure to get the chicken, that was best.

We sat down at a nice cafe in Khan Kalili to eat and have coffee and some water. Be careful for that shop and to always ask the price before ordering. We ordered without asking for the price and they saw us take out $100 cash and we felt they overcharged us.

Since moving to Egypt several years ago, my husband and I have had several amazing excursions with our guide Ashraf Zakhary! Pyramids, Citadel, Khan-il Khalili, Camel rides,Sakkara, Nile Lunch Cruise- the list goes on as we continue to book him whenever friends and family visit. Ashraf speaks fluent English, is flexible and punctual. The cars or vans provided always have air conditioning and are clean. He is so knowledgable he can tailor the tour to your liking on the spot and has very good rapport with all ages- this is especially helpful when in groups! :) He is the first person we call when we have visitors and I trust him implicitly with my family and friends when we are unable to accompany them.

The highlight of the tour was undoubtedly the museum, especially the Mummy Room. Don't miss it! Mahmoud Hoka was an excellent guide, and if you have the opportunity to choose your Egypt expert I can thoroughly recommend him.

This was a great tour. Our tour guide Ibrahim was the best tour guide we had during our entire trip. I learned so much from him about ancient and modern Egypt, the Muslim faith, the artifacts in the museum, and the history of the Coptic people. He was able to answer every question we had and spoke excellent English. His demeanor was laid-back and friendly. We didn’t know we were also getting a photographer as well. He took some amazing photos with our camera. I would highly recommend this tour and to ask for Ibrahim as your tour guide.

Booked tour before leaving uk so receiving text from Radwan day before trip was v reassuring. What a great guide! He arranged the timing of visits to each sight to be most advantageous regarding traffic and crowds. His enthusiasm and knowledge was infectious! Enabling us to understand and appreciate all we were looking at from the Citadel to the Egyptian Museum with a relaxing yet atmospheric lunch in Khan al-Khalili. A great day we would recommend everyone to ask for Radwan as their guide to Cairo.

Fatma Mohammed arrived early for the 8:00am pickup and rang the room to introduce herself, this made it very easy to spot her when we came down to reception. Fatma was super friendly and immediately put us at ease. In the car driving to the Egyptian Museum she chatted at length about the day, the area, the lengthy and difficult process of becoming a tour guide in Egypt and the car journey soon passed with Lots of conversation and laughter. We were passed swiftly through tickets and security and into the Egyptian museum, where starting at the top Fatma spent time telling us the stories and mysteries that made the artefacts come to life, she knew exactly where to go and what to see and we were enthralled by her stories, we had luckily landed on a quiet day and had time and space to see everything we wanted, Fatma was able to easily answer any questions we had, and point out anything we may have missed. We then spent an hour in the Bazaar and as we weren’t overly interested in shopping were able to look at the beautiful mosques and buildings and learn some more history about the area. The next stop was the Citadel were we had time to take in the stunning views, appreciate the architecture, learn some more interesting stories, relax in the stunning mosque and soak in the atmosphere. We finished the day with a late lunch on the river chatting and laughing over good food with Fatma and Michel, our driver for the day. Fatma was the friendliest, most knowledgeable and interesting tour guide I have ever been lucky enough to have and wish that I could have her with me for every trip. I highly recommend this trip and Fatma as your guide.
