“good quality, good service”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

We recently toured Cairo despite the current political unrest, and we were glad we did. The sites had few tourists, the roads were mostly clear, and the people were extremely friendly. The folks at the Topaz Bazaar were characteristic of this demeanor, as they were very friendly and helpful, but not pushing the hard sell. They had a wide selection of items, many of which were high quality. I highly recommend them for a quick peaceful stop to get your souvenirs.

“Great shopping for Egyptian souvenirs”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

My husband and I wanted to take souvenirs home to our family while on a recent trip to Egypt. We were fortunate to meet Mr. Ramy at Topaz Bazaar and he helped us pick out the perfect gifts for our children. The cartouches are beautiful and the girls loved them. They did not pressure us and understood that we actually bought more when we had time to browse the store. I recommend this store to everyone AND they are located very near to the Sphinx.

“Great place for cartouche and other Egyptian souvenirs”
Reviewed 21 April 2013

While on an excursion to see the pyramids in Egypt, we were fortunate to discover the wonderful store, Topaz Bazaar. There was a huge selection of Egyptian souvenirs and keepsakes made exclusively in Egypt. There was an excellent selection of cartouche pendants and rings in gold, silver, and combination black & silver. We were particularly pleased with the service we received when we purchased a cartouche ring. It was made while we broused the store for other treasures. When we arrived back home, our daughters wished for a ring as well, as a cartouche represents good luck and protection from evil. We emailed the owner of the store, Ramy Zakaria, giving him the ring sizes, choice of letters, and that we chose the combination black & silver. They chose to have their children's names for the heiroglyphics of the maximum 9 symbols. Ramy had the rings made and sent them to us in Canada. It was very quick service, and we were very happy with the results. Topaz Bazaar is located at 90 St., Abu El Houl, Pyramids - Giza - Egypt. To contact Ramy, send an email to ramy-zakaria@hotmail.com He speaks and writes very good English.

“Must visit!”
Reviewed 6 February 2013

If you are in Giza, you MUST stop and see Mr. Ramy at Topaz Bazaar! So many items you find in Cairo/Giza are "Made in China". I was looking for authentic, made in Egypt souvenirs and that is exactly what Topaz Bazaar stocks. The staff is very helpful and there is never any pressure to buy, as you may find at other shops. The selection of items is vast and there is something for everyone. They are right around the corner from the back gate by the Sphinx. I was lucky enough to be a repeat customer on my second trip to the Pyramids. Thanks Ramy!

“Excellent selection and prices at Topaz Bazaar”
Reviewed 16 January 2011

My wife and I were wanting to so some souvenir shopping during our recent trip to Egypt. While we generally disliked or outright refused the obligatory visit to the local shops during our daily tours, we were pleased with Topaz Bazaar. Ramy Zakaria and his team were very helpful in creating a beautiful, custom silver cartouche pendant for my wife with her name in heiroglyphics. They also had a great selection of just about everything "Egypt" such as jewelry, statues, home furnishings and more. The location is very convenient to the Giza Pyramids. I highly recommend that you visit.
