I read reviews here for Jana tours and the excellent reputation of Mohamed Abaza and his team.
My wife and i were in transit in Cairo for 20 hours and wanted to see as much as possible, so I emailed him and he replied with some ideas for a tour very quickly at a very reasonable price.
We were met at the airport by Mustapha (who quickly sorted out the visas and is known at the airport) and our driver Hosni (at 3.30am) and taken to a hotel for 4 hours, before the start of the tour.
We met Mohamed in the morning (along with Hosni as our personal driver for the day) and he proved to be delightful informative company for the whole day. He is an Egyptologist and professor at the University and something of a local celebrity, as we found out during the day - literally everybody knew him.
Because of the recent troubles, Cairo was empty of tourists, so on our visit to the Museum of Cairo, the relics of Tutankhamun were all ours to study at length. The pyramids at Geeza also deserted.
If you have security issues and would like to visit, email Mohamed and be reassured that he is on the ground with a full understanding of exactly what is going on.
Hosni, our driver was excellent and always there for the next leg of the journey - driving in Cairo is not for the faint hearted, he was amazing among a constant chaos of horns and speeding madmen.
Cairo must be experienced once - this is the way to do it.
We thank you Mohamed for an incredible day that we'd both waited for, for many years.
You are a true professional and a gentleman.
