At the top of the Cairo forum is a list of all the recommended tour guides and companies. Send out a few emails to a few of them and see what comes up best pricewise and itinerary-wise for you.

There is also a local guide who writes a blog on the touregypt.com website. Her contact details are on her blog somewhere, so it may be worth sending her an email seeing how she compares.

We will be on a cruise docking in Alexandria and would like to arrange a private tour to the pyramids and Cairo, being careful to be back to the ship before 10PM. I would appreciate tour companies in Alexandria for this.
