    Trustworthy place to buy gold!
    I was brought here by my tour guide after seeing the pyramids. I met with Islam and the owner. Place was incredibly clean, very professionally laid out unlike other places I went, so automatically I felt comfortable. I was served amazing tea. I ended up buying a couple 18k bracelets. I will definitely come back. If you want to buy gold and trust , come here.

    Such a cool experience!
    Bought a beautiful cartouch leather bracelet. Islam was very welcoming and offered us tea as well as the history behind the charms. Got to go up to the workshop and see behind the scenes the whole process of how they make the jewelry. Very cool experience!

    Great Experience at Golden Bird Bazaar
    Islam and his team were AMAZING at teaching us the history of the hieroglyphs and the meaning of the symbols. Islam worked careful with us to decide what we wanted and how to make a unique piece of jewelry from Egypt that we will cherish forever! He walked us through each step: deciding the size, the symbols, and even took us upstairs to show us how they created our special pieces. If you are traveling to Egypt, you HAVE to come visit the Golden Bird Bazaar to take home a wonderful and hand-crafted souvenir!

    You must come visit!!
    Islam’s (store owner) golden bird bazaar is a must stop in your time at Cairo. It all started with a personalized reading behind your name based on hieroglyphic meanings. Then you get to personalize your jewelry piece with very fair pricing! We were lucky enough to see the craft process upstairs! Amazing craftsmanship, hospitality, and souvenirs for a lifetime! Islam is a very warm hearted person. Always smiling and happy to receive all his customers. Wonderful experience all around!!! Thank you Islam 🙏🏼

    Remarkable Quality and Remarkable Team!
    The Golden Bird Bazaar is a must when visiting the greater Cairo area! The owner, Islam, ensures all pieces available are of the best quality, with remarkable craftsmanship. The gentleman assisting us, Abdul (see pic) was professional, resourceful, efficient, knowledgeable, passionate, and extremely kind to our family. We received great prices and beautiful pieces, for our entire family! In addition, the owner Islam and Abdul blessed us with something special before we left. Thank you for taking great care of our family. You will visit many bazaars typically with tour guides, but this one is and will be the best stop for beautiful, quality jewelry! Thank you again Islam and Abdul!

    Cartouche in a hurry
    My wife has been wanting a Cartouche for years. We were recommended to come to Gold Bird Bazaar. Islam helped us and his customer service was top tier. Great quality jewelry, reasonable pricing, and the customized cartouche was done in very reasonable timeframe. I would highly recommend if anyone is coming to Egypt come to Gold Bird Bazaar and ask for Islam. You will NOT be disappointed.

    Cartouch Bracelet
    Islam is the best! He helped me make my cartouch bracelet and was so easy and fun to work with! They make you feel very welcome in their store and everyone is lovely. I have friends coming to Egypt in the fall and have already recommended the store. Five stars and more!

    Reputable gold jeweler
    Hospitable, family-oriented, and reputable jeweler in Giza. They will create a custom cartouche for you on the spot and let you watch it be made. 18K gold. They did a superb job with my custom piece. I would recommend this spot for anyone looking to treat themselves to some gold while in Egypt! Don't be afraid to negotiate.

    Great experience acquiring a cartouche and snake ring!
    Met Islam the gregarious shop owner as my wife was looking for a snake ring. First, he told us about the history of the cartouche and talked into buying a custom beautiful black leather and silver cartouche. Then, he showed he a bunch of different snake jewelry none of which matched what she was looking for but he managed to customize one to meet her desired requirements. Surprisingly, the pricing after some minor haggling (all in good fun) seemed fair so we picked up both pieces and were taken upstairs so we could see the master jeweler customize her bracelet!

    Great shopping experience
    The best shopping experience since I have been in Egypt! Islam, the owner, has the best personality and great staff. My friends and I purchased engraved unique pieces and were not disappointed. We want to thank Islam and his staff for the exceptional customer service. We will definitely purchase from him again.

This place is an absolute dream. While in Egypt next to the pyramids, we visited Golden Bird and were completely impressed by the care and diligence expressed by these talented Jewelers. Every beautiful piece comes with a certificate to verify quality and authenticity. I went to other Jewelers and I can say with confidence that Golden Bird is the only place in Cairo and Giza I will return to!

Golden Bird Bazaar is a hidden gem in Egypt. We visited after our pyramid tour and were greeted with complimentary drinks by the kind owner, who was a sweet talker but never pushy. We loved exploring the upstairs area, where we saw the amazing hand-crafted jewelry process and found additional souvenirs. The shop owner was also very knowledgeable and took the time to explain the crafting process and the history and meanings of hieroglyphics. Everyone in our group made a purchase and we received a fair discount. This bazaar is a must-visit for anyone in Egypt!

Golden Bird Bazaar offers an unmatched shopping experience in Cairo. After our pyramid tour, we were taken to this incredible shop. We were greeted with complimentary drinks and a warm welcome from the owner, who provided great customer service. His friendly and respectful
manner, without any pushiness, made us feel comfortable. The upstairs area allowed us to see the meticulous hand-crafting of jewelry firsthand along with various
souvenirs from coffee mugs to alabstair pieces. Downstairs, the selection of jewelry was large and impressive. Everyone from our group made a purchase and we received a small discount. This bazaar is a must-visit for quality items and excellent service.

Islam has the best customer service. Kind man, sweet talker but no pressuring. We were greeted with a complimentary drink. I choose tea with mint. He allowed be to look around. I am very indecisive but he was patient with me. If you’re in Cairo please stop in his store.

Came in to get authentic Egyptian jewelry. Islam helped us pick out something that looked amazing. Got a bracelet and necklace. It felt like I was doing business with family not a salesman. I highly recommend you stop here to get good affordable authentic Egyptian jewelry.

Excellent customer service with great gifts! My wife and I were introduced to this store after a nice tour of the pyramids. The store features fine jewelry that can be customized with a wide number of pricing options.

We were instantly drawn to the unique selections and quickly decided that this was the place we would get a number of souvenirs for family and close friends. This is your best stop to find something very unique and memorable that will last a lifetime!

Islam was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! We had a party of 10, 6 adults and 4 children. He immediately made us feel at ease! He was receptive to our needs and time constraints! We purchased ALL of our jewelry from this shop! It was SO awesome that we are planning to come by and pick up a couple more items before returning back home!

Thank you Summer for your recommendation! BEST shopping experience EVER!!! Thank you Islam!!!! We will DEFINITELY be back!!!

So thanks to our local guide Sara we were introduced to Islam at the Golden Bird Bazar. Upon arriving you feel you have known this man all your life (your Miami brother from another mother) The shop is impeccable, the selections are extraordinary and the warm and no pressure salesmen ship was spot on. In the end I left with an amazing life long memory for not only myself but my family with personalized Cartouches for each of us. If you can make it here ask him to take you to the upstairs shop where you can see first hand this amazing process of hand crafted jewelry. Thank you Islam and your family for your kind service and being part of this beautiful memory.
