Best Egypt Experience!!
Beyond the amazing pyramids, Egyptian museum, ATV trip, incredible tombs, and the most beautiful all-inclusive resort on the Red Sea, this trip was absolutely made by our Egyptologist, Mohamed El-Maghrabi! Our group was so fun and inclusive and Mohamed was the most incredible tour guide. In my opinion, he ensured a value level trip became a first class experience. We felt comfortable and safe the entire time and through Mohamed, we were able to experience authentic Egyptian restaurants, hotels, and marketplaces. So well done, I’d recommend (and do) to anyone looking for a once in a lifetime experience.

Egypt Wonders Tours – highly recommended!
I booked two day trips with them and was both times impressed with their client oriented service. On both days they picked me up at my hotel and were there before agreed time, which I value very highly. On both tours the guide, Sultan, was very considerate and flexible, adjusting the programme to my liking. You can discuss your preferences with him before the tour or as you go. He is very understanding and will tailor the trip as much as possible to meet your requests. He was very knowledgeable, with excellent English skills, easy to communicate with and he is a great photographer, which is very helpful for solo travelers who are not in to “selfies photography” 😊. Both my trips were in Cairo (the pyramids, the bazaar, Christian and Islamic historical areas, National museum) and Sultan made sure that we took different routes, so I got to see as much as possible of the city. Omar, the best driver in Cairo, deserves a special mention! The Egypt Wonders Tours is an amazing team of dedicated professionals and I really can’t recommend them enough. As I plan to travel in Egypt again in the future, I will for sure use their services again.

Bland tour
I know it is Ramadan so I was willing to accept that food would be an issue but it was a bland tour walking through downtown visiting few sites of interest and ended up at the market which was the highlight and well worth a visit

Great Tour
One day full of fun. Ali Ahmed set up everything for my tour and the experience can not be matched by any company, not for now. Saw all to do with Pyramids, had camel ride, good meals. Recommends this company to any first timer in Cairo. Will come again for more bigger package. Charges were friendly and i think they can do something to match any pocket, tell them what you want, let them do it.

Walid cannot be beat
We enjoyed our tour immensely. Walid was on time ( i am a super stickler for promptness) and from the get go he was pleasant and interested in us and what we expected from our day tour. We felt safe, we got more information than we could ever have expected. My now fiance and I still talk about this tour fondly. I would reach out to Walid and Egypt Wonder again without hesitation if I were to visit again.

Great day, great guide
We visited Cairo from Hurghada for one day. After arrival in Cairo we met Mohamed AKA (super mo) as our guide for the day. He is very sympathetic, has a lot of knowledge and speaks perfect English. Couldn't be more satisfied!

Excellent guide and amazing tour!!!
I spent 10 days in Egypt and my tour of Cairo was one of the best tours ever! My guide Mahmoud was super. His English was perfect and his knowledge of all the places and history was excellent. I intend to visit again and will surely book my tours with Mahmoud again as he is simply the best guide I met in Egypt

Amazing guide and very knowledgeable!!
I had an amazing experience on all 3 of my tours! I first did the pyramids, and Walid had so much knowledge of the history, plus, he was a lot of fun. He also took wonderful photos for me. In the evening, we ventured off to the Nile river for a dinner cruise. Lastly, the next day we made a few stops in Cairo, one of them being the essential oil place (only thing I do not recommend, but had nothing to do with my guide/tour), before our tour of the bazaar. I really would not have had a better time or experience without Walid. I definitely felt more safe, had more fun, and definitely would not have learned nearly as much, if anything at all. I strongly recommend using this company for any tours of Egypt. When I return, I'm looking forward to covering new ground with Walid! Thank you for an amazing time!

Incredibly knowledgeable, fun and flexible
I booked Walid for a range of activities in Cairo and Giza over three days. He was so friendly and helpful. He gave me loads of local knowledge spanning millennia of history. He told me all about the ancient Egyptians, but also the full history of Egypt and Cairo right up to the present day. He went out of his way to make my stay a pleasant one and made sure we had interesting things to do alongside all the tours. I recommend Walid very highly as a guide.

Memorable Egyptian Tour!
We had a fantastic week long trip to Egypt, met wonderful people and had a phenomenal tour guide in Walid!!! We were very impressed with Walid's expert knowledge of Egypt's history, and knew exactly what we should see, do and where we should eat. Walid also made sure we got the best pictures/videos at each location we visited. We felt completely safe in his care as we toured Cairo, the pyramids at Giza, and Alexandria. Walid was on time each morning and made sure we had an enjoyable and fun packed day. We definitely made a friend in Walid!!! We highly recommend Walid and his tour company to deliver an awesome and memorable Egyptian experience!!!

Bucket list
I had always dreamed of seeing the pyramids and finally got my chance! My first day in Cairo was spent with a non memorable tour guide, honestly I don’t remember what I did or saw, it was pretty uneventful. On the second day however, I chose a different company and luckily my guide was Walid! First stop was the Cairo museum. It was a beautiful day, we sat outside as Walid told me, in depth story of how Egypt was settled and the beginnings of agriculture. The way he told the story was fascinating. We went on over the next couple days seeing the Sphinx, pyramids, boat cruse etc What I really like about Walid is his ability to share his knowledge in captivating and easy to understand ways. I’m planning on bringing my family to Cairo again in the fall of 2019. We will without a doubt be spending our time with Walid and his company. Gar Reynolds
