Fantastic!
Nov. 2021 • Couples
Nour Nagy was our english tour guide and Mohamed Musola, our driver, were fantastic and honestly genuine. They cared for our safety and explained what we saw on our quick day tour to Coptic Cairo and Khan El Khalil via a private car in the streets of Cairo. They answered any questions for us and made sure we were happy. We enjoyed seeing the culture of the people and understanding the life of the people in Cairo. Thank you Isaak for setting up this tour with wonderful people.

Another Perfect tour by TwitterEgypt
Feb. 2021
Again another perfect tour with Twitter Egypt.
Everything was well taken care of by our amazing tourguide Ayam.
She is the best.
When you are in Egypt I recommend Twitter Egypt for anything you need in Egypt!
They can arrange airport dropoff, pickup and make life at the aiport soo much more simple!

They can and will make it happen for you easily.
They even helped us out with arranging a PCR test which we needed to fly back to Amsterdam.

About the tour, the views were STUNNING! The M. Ali mosque is GRAND and the history behind it in Egypt time is relatively small and short but it is still VERY impressive!

Great sites hidden in a gem of a city
Nov. 2020
Hany was our guide for this day. He picked us up and we were off to the Citadel and the Mosque of Mohammad Ali the Great. We had the place to ourselves, Hany, went through the history, the architecture and then became our cameraman. This part alone would be worth it, but we were off to see other parts of the city. We saw the Hanging Church, a must see, once there you will know why. The cave church and we tried to get into a Synagogue but it was closed. To make up for it Hany provide us with a real treat in the form of authentic communion bread. The tour continued to a great lunch and a few side stops to an Oil shop, a jewelry store, and a papyrus factory.

Very Well Done. AA Well Paced, Informative and Enjoyable Day
Feb. 2020
Twitter Egypt was accommodating in arranging our last day in Cairo. We visited the churches of Coptic Cairo and the Alabaster Mosque/Citadel, followed by a very enjoyable lunch. We then spent the afternoon in the Egyptian Museum. Once again, our expert guide greatly enhanced our understanding of the culture and history of the Egypt.
The pick up and drop off were exactly as promised, a hallmark of Twitter Egypt.
