Wow, what an incredible experience! We booked the 4-day Cairo itinerary, and it exceeded our expectations.

Absolutely, the tour was well-organized. Our guide, Ahmed, was knowledgeable and friendly. He made sure we saw all the highlights like the Pyramids, Sphinx, and the Egyptian Museum.

And the Nile cruise! That was a highlight for us. The food and entertainment on the boat were top-notch.

We highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Cairo. It’s the perfect blend of history, culture, and relaxation.

We were blown away by the beauty and history of Cairo during our 4-day adventure.

The Pyramids were jaw-dropping, and the camel ride around them was a unique experience.

Our guide, Mohammed, was fantastic. He was passionate about his job and made the history come alive.

The visit to the Khan El Khalili market was a blast. We brought back some beautiful souvenirs.

This tour is a must for anyone interested in Egyptian history and culture.

Family Traveller

Our family’s 4 day Cairo itinerary exceeded our expectations in every way. This trip was a perfect blend of history and relaxation. EgyptPlanners guide, was not only knowledgeable but also very accommodating to our family’s needs.

The sunrise visit to the Pyramids was a magical experience, and the kids were thrilled to explore the ancient tombs. The Nile cruise provided us with a serene break from sightseeing, and the traditional dance performances were a hit with our children. We left Cairo with a deep appreciation for Egypt’s rich culture and history.
