I’m happy to tour with Margo. I’m not feeling well during the tour so, we walk slowly and she gave me date cookies and panadol to help with my headache. She is nice and friendly lady. I feel safe and happy touring with Margo. She explain the history during the tour. She also help me to get my Hieroglyphic pendant at Mamluk jewellery shop even though it is a last minute plan.

Dean was such an amazing guide and knowledgeable . Most importantly he was compassionate and caring . My son fell sick while on the tour due to the extreme heat and Dean took extra care in terms of helping us with that situation and making sure he was comfortable. Was such a pleasure having him as our tour guide and would highly recommend him ! Thank you Dean !!!

The tour was very beautiful and intense and our guide Mr. Hossam was exceptional and professional, he spoke Italian very well and explained us in detail and also details of the history and culture of the city. If you ever go on a tour, ask for Hossam, a very courteous and helpful person as well as of course being culturally impeccable.
