We book this tour at FTS travel through Get our guide which I can highly recommend. We started around 4:30 AM and went back to the hotel past midnight. It was a very long day but it was not as tiring because we were driven from point to point. There was so much to see and learn that it can be overwhelming. But our tour guide, Wael was a really nice guy and very knowledgable. He shared only the important info to us so you will not be mentally exhausted. I recommend booking at get oir guide instead of directly to the travel agency because it offers some sort of protection in case the travel agency you booked is a scam.

Amazing day with fellow solo travelers. Our guide was knowledgeable and super sweet, even with the challenge of a narcissistic male who questioned her knowledge all day. The only thing I would recommend… skip the expensive oils and papyrus shops where no one buys, so travelers can spend more time at the museum. We barely made it in the museum just to be ordered out because they were closing. 15 minutes in a beautiful Egyptian museum is NOT enough.

The entire day was great. The guide was very kind and knowledgeable about all things Egypt. she was able to answer all the questions thrown at her which was great. she gave a great guided tour around the museum. most of all the guide was kind, generous and has a good sense of humour.

Dina was an excellent tour guide, we have seen everything what we planned. We learned a lot about the Coptic culture and history. Thank you!

Everything was perfect, super impressed! Highly recommend it
