What people are saying about Cairo International Airport

Overall rating

4.4 / 5

based on 1,499 reviews

Exceptional experience on an 8-day Egyptian tour, thanks to meticulous planning and Zeinab's daily updates. The itinerary included major historical sites, and the guides, particularly David and Kareem, were knowledgeable, enhancing the experience. All the guides also taught me how to avoid scammers so I paid a reasonable price for everything. The tour is ideal for Egypt newcomers and is more insightful with an extra day for Cairo's museums. Physical fitness is necessary for early starts, but solo travel allows for less crowded temple visits. Adding a day to explore Cairo's museums is something I'd recommend. The hot air balloon ride in Luxor was a highlight, offering breathtaking views of the city at sunrise. For those with extra time, a trip to Dandera Temple and catching a sunset at the Sofitel Hotel in Aswan are the must-dos. Be prepared for early mornings, as some days start as early as 4 am.

Our guide Khaled Omar, a trained archaeologist, was the best guide you could ask for. Witty, with a lot of background knowledge and a good dose of humor, he brought the history of Egypt and the land of the Pharaohs to life for us. We would especially like to thank him but also the rest of the team for making the entire tour run smoothly and for an unforgettable day.

Absolutely fantastic. We’ll organise with an incredibly knowledgeable guide. We had a wonderful day

I had a really good time, totally recommend. Show was great, food and atmosphere.

Highly professional service from Moustafa. Felt safe and secure! Thank you!
