Amazing trip
Oct 2021 • Couples
I highly recommend this trip! We were picked up in a nice, modern van. The tour guide took great care of us and the driver is highly skilled to manoeuvre the busy streets of Cairo. You get worth your money as you will do a lot on this trip: a visit to the museum, pyramids and Sfinx plus additional/optional stops. A must do to when visiting Egypt! We had a great experience with this tour provider especially.

From the start, we were taken care of. There were drinks and snacks and even a pillow to have some extra sleep in the van since you leave very early in the morning. At the museum, the guide explained all the important details and there was enough time left for us to see stuff ourselves. Highlight of the trip was definitely the piramides and the sphinx. One thing to take in mind is that locals are trying to sell everything to you, which could be annoying. But all in all, I think this trip is a must if you are in Egypt. This provider offered us great tour guides and chauffeur.

Great trip to Giza complex and Egyptian museum
Dec 2020
Booked with Ramashka Tours via Viator.
Be mindful tour took us 19.5 hours 2am-9.30
We ended up being alone for the whole trip

Pros:
Timely pick up(2am
Goodies bag from owner - croissants and water
2 drivers in minivan, plus very important- a security personnel with as at all times.
We felt very safe due to the above!!,
Great guide met us in Cairo - Mr Mamdouh. Very well informed and educated. Not once i ve met guides with insufficient history knowledge to be guides. Certainly not the case here. He helped shield us from the constant hard sale types attacking you every second.
Optional boat tour - 10 euro per person.

Cons
Unnecessary stop at the end in a fragrance store. Visitors should be asked if they want it. Nice person, but the usual attempt to sell things.
Public toilets cost money even in the museum where it is written free of charge:) prices for europeans are 10times higher and variable.

Another consideration, not related to the tour (thus the 5 star)- you feel like a pggie bank everywhere you go. “No, thank you” has no meaning here, you will get asked another 100 times by the same salesman.
Also be prepped for few police checks and stops on the roads.

Fantastic trips to Cairo and Luxor
Sep 2020
We did 2 tours with Ramashka Tours to Cairo and to Luxor, both were excellent our driver Amit was first class. Luxury minibus, very comfortable. Our guides were so knowledgeable about what we were seeing at every stage of our trips.
We cannot thank Ahmed and his staff for the fantastic time we had, the people we met and the experience we all shared.
Special thank you for David’s Birthday Cake, everyone enjoyed it and also again to Ahmed for the advice on a matter of Egyptian Tourism Law.
Please book with Ramashka Tours they are excellent and really know how to treat their clients. If ever we go back to Egypt we would definitely book again.

Trip to pyramids
Mar 2020 • Couples
Our trip started at 1:30 am, we spent about 7 hours just to go to Cairo. Trip to the main city was very long and tiring but we had a great experience to see and enjoy the great pyramids of Giza. We met our guide in Cairo, his name is Ahmed. He was very professional and charismatic person. He has a passion for his job. He made our excursion very interesting and knowledgeable. Thank you for this experience

Great trip to the Egypt Museum and Pyramids
Feb 2020
Very good company, hard trip by minibus from Hurghada starting at 2.30 AM, but worth it. Guide is very passionate, if somewhat over the top , but learnt a lot from Mr Mama. Lunch on the Nile was average but the extra boat trip for 30 minutes was well worth it for £10. We needed a bit more free time and could do without the Papayurus sales trip for 1 hour in a day that was already very tiring.

Feb 2020 • Couples
Absolutely perfect from the booking, confirmation and delivery of the trip. Hotel pick up exactly on time, modern comfortable minibus with air con. Our guide in Cairo (the infamous Mamdour) was brilliant, friendly and informative. Time to explore on our own as well so we wander around extra exhibits in the Cairo museum. Pyramids were outstanding with many ‘non tourists’ route taken to avoid the crowd and see the best views. Truly wonderful trip, never felt like 19 hours pick up to return drop off. There are other operators offering the same/similar trip at lower prices but glad we booked with Ramashka Tours. Well worth the money. Using Ramashka for the Luxor upcoming trip too,

Great trip to Cairo by mini bus
Just returned yesterday from a wonderful bus tour to Cairo , picked up at 2:30 from Jaz casa del mar hotel and along with 6 others began out 6 hour journey to Cairo , Ahmed met us and gave us some water and a croissant and transported is a lovely new mine bus with two fantastic drivers , stopped half way for toilet break and coffee , arrived outside Cairo museum at 8:30 to be met by our wonderful guide Mama who explained everything that would happen when it opened at 9AM, he was very informative for an hour then gave us free time for 50 mins. Then offered and additional cruise down Nile for £10 which we didn’t fancy so stayed in mini bus for trip down to floating restaurant , this place caters for loads of coach party’s so is just a big buffet selection of rice , salad, fish , vegetables and chicken , we found something to eat but best to take some lunch and breakfast box from hotel . After this we drove across nile to Giza and the great pyramids , Mama explained it was better to go now as most of the other tourists would be eating and he was correct . He gave us a great experience walking around these wonders and took plenty of pictures for us just 4 of us and him . We when down into a pyramid tomb which was fascinating. After wards we went through the terrible Cairo traffic to a perfume shop where we had a mint tea and a bottle of water , we did buy two bottles of perfume extract (50ml) for £21 as felt a bit sorry for them as no body wanted anything but you are under no pressure to buy . After this we left to drive back , best to get out of Cairo before the 5pm traffic as was explained by Mama it would take 1 1/2 hours to get out instead of 20 mins . We dropped him off along the motorway and travelled back with a toilet coffee break arriving back at hotel at 21:30 , a really really Great trip and will stay with me for ever . Thought it was great value for £65 each , plenty of operators around and I believe you get it hat you pay for , have booked to do the quad safari with Ahmed and his company
