Great Half-Day Tour
Feb 2019 • Family
Our tour guide Shaimaa was awesome! She was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of information about the history of Coptic Cairo answering my son's many questions. She allowed us to take our time, explore the area and take photos. After we were done with the tour, we had Koshari for lunch. We took this tour towards the end of our trip and the 1/2 day was perfect.

The Best Tour EVER!
Dec 2018 • Couples
We arrived in Cairo with no tours booked, and just a need to see the Pyramids and Sphinx. We decided on this tour through Viator less than 12 hours before the scheduled start of these half day guided tours. I booked for four of us, with a package that included hotel pick up/drop off, entrance to Pyramids, Sphinx, camel rides, and a traditional lunch.

I was absolutely stunned by how amazing this tour was. We were picked up at our hotel by Rania from Let's Explore Egypt who was PHENOMENAL. Not only was she knowledgeable, friendly, professional, and timely, but she also kept away the unwanted street vendors and hustlers. We called her our body guard the entire time.

Rania shared so many wonderful stories and facts about the sites, and took us to the best photo-op spots and basically conducted a full photo shoot for each of us. She took her time making sure we were enjoying our tour and learning all of the amazing history of this beautiful place.

15/10 would recommend her as a tour guide, and this guided tour was the perfect experience. Not too long, not too short. We felt we would've been completely lost without Rania, and our experience may have been quite awful without her. Also, the lunch spot she took us to faced the pyramids and sphinx, and it was delicious!

Again, would HIGHLY recommend this trip. Thank you so much, Rania!

Awesome day
I didnt know what to expect from the coptic cairo tour but it surpassed all my expectations thanks to our wonderful guide rania and driver andrew.

Rania brought to life the beauty of coptic cairo through her own beautiful unique life lens. She instantly showed us the beauty that copitic cairo had to offer with a genuine passion for what she does. Such a kind hearted genuine person to take us around such a historical enigmatic part of cairo

Awesome first time to the Pyramids of Giza
Great tour on our first time here in Egypt. The whole experience was awesome from the pick up to drop off. Our tour guide Ibrahim Rashad and our driver Mido were professional and fun. We took lots of great pictures around the pyramids and with the camels. Not only did we have fun with the sights but learned about Egyptian history along the way! Great tour!

History Alive!
Aug 2018 • Family
We traveled to Egypt as a family, grandchildren and grandparents included. It was brutally hot since it was late August and we seriously questioned our ability to stay focused and actively listening. However, our tour guide Mohamed Osama of Let's Explore Egypt made sure that the history would come alive; not only was he very well informed, his English excellent, but he was very personable, kept the stories interesting, relating and connecting events to the places we visited, bringing out the story behind the history, pointing out noteworthy artistic elements, and giving us "insider" information about the importance of so many details that would have by-passed us otherwise. He definitely enhanced our understanding of the beautiful cultural and artistic mix of Christianity and Islam, making our tour fascinating! As a person, he related to our questions, was aware of our needs, and made the day relaxed and informative. Thank You! Mohamed for giving us a taste of the rich cultural heritage of Coptic Cairo.

Pyramid tour with camel ride and lunch
What an amazing experience! We were picked up right out front of our hotel and taken right to the ticketing counter for the pyramids. We had a fantastic guide named Heba who not only handled the ticket purchases but also gave us historical information about everything we saw. She worked with the camel guides to get us an amazing camel ride through the dessert and offered to take pictures of us the whole time which was super helpful. We then were taken to the local Topaz Bazar by our wonderful driver and made a few purchases there for some friends back home. Heba then took us to a local Egyptian restaurant where we had some amazing authentic food. It was a wonderful and stress free day and could not have asked for a better guide. Thanks Heba!
