Lamia is the best guide ever! - Lamia is such an amazing tour guide! She was knowledgeable, charming, and helped us take amazing pictures. She gave my family and I such an elevated experience, we'll never forget it! I highly recommend requesting her specifically. We'll definitely be booking her again next time we're in the area!

Tour with Mahmoud - A very good day with our guide Mahmoud, passing through the Cairo Civilization Museum, to visits to the Pyramids of Gizah and the Sphynx. We also saw the use of Papyrus and a perfumery. Very interesting day, our guide Mahmoud was patient and explained well to us. 🇪🇬❤️🤍🖤 تحيا مصر

The New Grand Museum is a must see! - Paulo was an excellent guide. He was interesting, helpful, knowledgeable and his English was easy to understand. The museum was enormous, very modern with an excellent design and lighting. The exhibits were well explained and beautifully positioned and lighted. The Tutankhamen experience was more fun than interesting. We look forward to seeing it again when it is finished inside.

Do you want to Time Travel ? - There are good guides but there is only ONE Youssef Shaaban With a big smile he meets you with great history knowledge and warm heart . He transports you backwards in time and space and really makes you feel like you are there in that era. So the question is do you want a guide or a time travel? 10/10 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Youssef is a phenomenal guide - Youssef was our tour guide, and he did a fantastic job! He really knows his history, and was able to tell us so many details from memory and answer any questions we threw at him. He never rushed us and struck a good balance between guiding us through specific pieces in the museum or at the pyramids site versus letting us explore on our own. He knew great spots for photos where we’d be able to get an unobstructed view with no lines, and he gave us posing ideas. He even noticed that I liked the jewelry in one part of the exhibit and pointed out specific pieces and facts about the jewelry in a later one. He really went above and beyond and I can’t imagine having a better experience than what he gave us!

Great Family Experience! Superb Guide!! - We had such an amazing time on this tour! Our guide, Mr. Youssef, picked us up directly from the airport and gave us a warm welcome to Egypt. He was so knowledgeable, planned the trip bery efficiently and clearly explained the history behind all the landmarks we saw. We were able to see the great pyramids and the sphinx, up close and from a panoramic viewpoint as well. We rode camels, which was a thrilling experience. Then we got to experience the Egyptian museum and all of the amazing artifacts within. Mr Youssef explained all the details of each artifact very patiently & answered all questions very eagerly. Then we stopped by Al-Azhar mosque, the old city walls & gate, the Khan Al-Khalil market and other locations. I highly recommend folks to take advantage of the service provided by Mr. Youssef, his arrangements and knowledge.

Grand Egyptian Museum will be a must see - I toured the Grand Museum with Lamia from @Getyourguide. She was a fantastic guide whom I would highly recommend. I can’t wait to come back to Cairo to see the museum once it has fully opened. It is beautiful building and I’m sure the entire collection will be as impressive.

Amazing museum - We were impressed with the Museum and the collection of artefacts. Our well-informed guide Lamia from Ramses Tour value-added to our experience. She provided useful information about the artefacts and answered our all questions knowledgeably.
