Wanted to say thank you to
Mohamed Elshemei and our driver Mahmoud for a great day.

I was collected on time to the minute from my hotel even at 4am and driven carefully to the airport. The driver was friendly and couldn’t of done more even offering to look after some of the things like drinks I couldn’t take on the plane.

The flight was great and on landing I was greeted my Mohamed outside the airport. The driver was also there and the day started immediately without delay.

I’ve been to Cairo before and felt very safe with the guide and driver.

The guide was very knowledgeable and despite Cairo traffic and parking being crazy, whenever we had to stop or park, Mahmoud seemed to always know somewhere and appear at the exact time and place without any delay so I was never hanging around.

All tickets were bought for me quickly so I didn’t have to queue and the best thing about having a guide was NO HASSLE. Usually you get pounced on a bit by sellers which is all part and parcel of Egypt of course and you just accept it, but having a guide was great as I was totally left alone entirely which was refreshing.

Would have no problems going anywhere in Egypt with these guys and would recommend anyone use them if you want to visit anywhere in the area.

I’ve been to Egypt around 10 or 11 times and I now know that I will always use a guide.

The day runs so much smoother, no hassle, no stress and unlike UK tour operators through the hotels, it’s completely private one on one service so no other hotel pick ups and drop off which often make the day much longer.

I also like the fact the one on one service means no big groups and marked mini buses making you stand out like a sore thumb either plus you have the autonomy to tweak your day as you’d like rather than a strict time table. If you want to spend longer on one place just ask, don’t want to go to something no problem. You can just blend in and enjoy your day in your own time.

Well done Guys – I’ll be back.

Day trip to Cairo by Private Vehicle

My boyfriend and I were picked up by the best driver ever Muhamud. He drove us fast and sagely from Hurghada to Cairo in 4.30hrs.
The trip was then guided by Emy, who’s most lovely and knowledgable. We went to the pyramids in the morning, Emy helped taking lots of photos. Then we went to the Sphinx, lunch, Egyptian Museum. Back at Hurghada by 21:30.
Would recommend this trip to anyone. And my biggest thanks to Emy and Muhamud!

Trip from Hurghada Giza Pyramids, Sphinx and Egyptian Museum

If you want to see Cairo and the Pyramids in the best way then choose this trip and Mohamed Elshemei as a guide if possible.

Mohamed is a pleasant and helpful guide who showed us the most important things at the museum and at the sights.

It was a good experience from start to finish, good driver who drove well the whole way. Egypt is lovely country, everyone has been friendly and this trip was a fantastic experience, we will definitely be back.

1 day Cairo and Giza tour from Hurghada

Great trip – would recommend. The day was well organised to fit everything in. Mohammed was a great guide and really made sure we enjoyed the trip and tailored it to what we wanted. He also did a great job at making sure we weren’t bothered by locals trying to sell stuff. He is very knowledgeable as well and a great guy.

The Best

My friends and I had a great and safe time on this tour. We were visiting Hurghada for 2 weeks and decided the plane option was great since driving to Cairo seemed like a bumpy (but fun) nightmare on the other reviews.

Our tour guide Mohamed Elshemei kept it real, telling us the history of the locations we visited and informed us of all the scams we’d run into. He was friendly and charismatic so it made the experience very easy going.

The places we visited included a local breakfast spot (amazing), the Egyptian Museum, the Pyramids of Giza (all three), the pyramids of Giza, the great bizarre, Papyrus painting store, and perfume/essence store. The only thing I’d be aware of is because the bizarre and stores sell authentic items, you’ll be paying regular american prices. That was only thing we werent prepared for. Also, most things are included but their are optional excusions within the included tickets such as seeing the mummy room for an extra 150 EP or going inside the smaller pyramid for 60 EP more.

During the tourist stops, we got a lot of historical info, got to go inside one of the pyramids, and had the option to ride a camel (we skipped it cause we were exhasted from the heat). Our tour guide was great at giving us the best photo ops so of youre into that, then your instagram will be ‘poppin’.

The tour also included breakfast and lunch which were amazing Egyptian meals. If you like flavor, theyll give it to you.

All in all, id definitely do it again. I feel like my friends and I wouldve been lost and robbed without an official and certified tour guide thats also a local. If youre visiting Egypt at all, stop by here.

Cairo private tour!!!
We had a private tour and we’ll what can we say it was fabulous!!!
Our tour guide for the day – Ismail was brilliant, so informative
And friendly!!! The driver was also fantastic, his car was the nicest in Cairo!!!
Advice would be to take Egyptian dollars with you when visiting Cairo as most places there take that currency over English pounds!!! Luckily Ismael helped us out!!!
Can’t recommend using Egypt tours portal enough!!! Even the perfume and papyrus stops were good!!!
Many thanks Egypt tours portal!!!

Cairo day trip from Hurghada
This is a fantastic way to see all of the major attractions in Cairo and Giza. We were picked up from our hotel and promptly flew to Cairo where we were given an excellent private tour of the city by Mohammed Elshemei and Taha. We were treated to traditional Egyptian breakfast when we arrived as well as lunch and lunch and snacks later in the day.
Mohammed has an excellent knowledge of the city’s history and passionately shared his wisdom. He was very honest about the standard tourist traps and helped us avoid any scams.
It was a hassle-free way to see the sights with local expertise in an information-packed 20 hours! I would highly recommend this trip!!

Excellent private tour of all Cairo
My husband and I spent the day being guided around Cairo by the wonderful Mohammed Elshemei and Taha and could not recommend the experience highly enough.
We booked the tour last minute and the tour company arranged everything for us, including transfer to and from our Hurghada hotel, domestic flights and a full day’s guided itinerary and meals in Cairo.
Highlights included the obvious attractions of the Egyptian Museum, pyramids, and Sphinx along with unexpected delights of traditional Egyptian breakfast, a sailboat trip on the Nile and a papyrus factory visit.

Our tour was fully private, with a dedicated and attentive tour guide and the driver looking after us for the whole day, meaning we could squeeze in as much activity as possible and had space and time to ask lots of questions and take lots of photos. Our guide Mohammed was extremely knowledgeable and had excellent English, ensuring we learned a huge amount from our day trip.

Seeing the pyramids and the Sphinx was truely the high light of out trip, I was just mesmerised, you can not go to Egypt without seeing some of the wonders of the world, you just can not believe the size of the pyramids, we were very lucky and went by horse and cart around the back of the 3 main pyramids and behold the are 9. You can ride a camel but I choose the cart. Go see the pyramids and the Sphinx , touch the stones it will be with you forever

I bought this ticket before we arrive to Hurghada by talking Ahmad on Whatsapp. We had a good deal for 6 people and a private car took us from our hotel in Hurghada and take us to Cairo. We met our guide Muhammad there and we made a Historical Museum tour together. We learned a lot of things about Ancient Egypt and we saw the mummies. Then we eat lunch and went to Pyramids and Sfenks. After that they brought us back to our hotel in Hurghada. This is a once in a lifetime experience that you should try in your life and we’re glad we made it with experienced people. We totally recommend it.

It was absolutely great. The driver picked us up at the hotel in Hurghada and surprisingly wasnt even late. By some people in my family he drove too fast but really, thanks to his a bit crazy driving the long way seemed much shorter. Our guide Amany, she was incredible. Really fun and chatty. Had so much knowledge about everything, had great tips and improvements on our tour, like take a boat over Nile to reach our restaurant, which was much nicer way to see Cairo than sitting in very chaotic traffic jam. And she is really good in taking funny photos with piramides. Overall, i was really happy with all the tour, the guide, the driver. My family were satisfied as well. So i would totally recommend them to anyone who asks.

We’ve just returned from a Cairo day trip which was action packed and absolutely fantastic. Right from the beginning the tour was well organised. Mohammed our guide was really knowledge and knew all the answers to the questions we asked. The day includes the Egyptian Museum, pyramids, market tour and much more. Highly recommended tour if you want to see ‘real Egypt’

Tour was very well organized, our private guide was very friendly and flexible – there were no problems making changes to the itinerary of our tour. Saqqara, Giza, and Egyptian museum were all very much worth visiting. People were everywhere firendly, were it at the market or on streets. City seemed safe, just could be somewhat cleaner.

“Egypt Tours From Hurghada ”
My husband and I did the day tour with Nader as our driver and Ibrahim as our guide. We had a wonderful tour with so many sites. We both found Ibrahim very knowledgeable and accommodating. He knew everything and answered all of our questions with authority and patience. I would highly recommend this tour if you want to leave the resort for a day and get some of the Egyptian culture. Ibrahim even stopped and accommodated my need for an authentic Egyptian falafel. Nothing was forced or pressured and Ibrahim gave us options including a cruise on the Nile. The tour starts early in the morning and you are back at the resort by 9 in the evening.

“Incredible day trip to Cairo from Hurghada”
We booked a day trip from Hurghada to see Cairo and the pyramids. It was incredible from start to finish. It was a long day…. but completely worth it. We took our 3 kids (ages, 6, 4 and 2). They were able to handle the trip and we all enjoyed it. I do wish we had spent less time at the Egyptian museum and more time at the Pyramids. It would have been nice to have another hour at the Pyramids.
Our private tour guide was great (Abraham). He was very nice and very helpful in every way. This tour company is very well organized. They are very responsive over email and helped us with everything we needed. I highly recommend using them for your day trip needs.

“’Unforgetable trip to Cairo’”
Just got back from a fantastic holiday in Egypt. My trip to Cairo with Egypt Tour Portals was the best decision ever. I had exchanged several emails with Ahmad Sameer who had organised a great trip for us.

We were picked up from our resort at 5.15 am in an air conditioned van by a gentleman who drove us to Hurghada airport.

On arrival we were picked up by HALEMO he was kind, friendly with an amazing knowledge of Egyptology. His warm welcome made us feel at home.

I had 3 son’s with me on the trip and HALEMO communicated well with the boys. I was surprised at how indulged the boys were in his talk. Me and the boys bonded with him really well.

We went to the Egyptian museum and then had lunch at the river Nile with breath taking view. Then we visited papyrus and perfume factories. Where HALEMO gifted me decorative perfume bottles. I was touched by the hospitality and respect he showed me.

Then we went to Giza pyramids Halemo talked us through and gave us all the information that we needed to know.The boys had a complimentry camel ride which they truely enjoyed.

We visited the Khan el-khalili bazaar and Halemo offered us tea. It had a lively atmosphere which I really enjoyed.
Then we had dinner on the way to the airport. Ahmed Sameer inquired about the trip which was definately outstanding.

It was saddening moment for me and the boys to say goodbye as we bonded really well with Halemo.

Egypt Tour Portal has provided us with an exceptional service; thankyou Ahmed Sameer. We had an amazing time with Halemo he is a brilliant guide.

“Fantastic day trip to Cairo from Hurghada!”
We flew to Cairo from Hurghada on 23rd August with our seven year old son. I was a little apprehensive as I had never done anything like this before but I had nothing to worry about. When we arrived in Cairo we were met by our fantastic guide Abraham who took us to our driver. First of all we visited the Cairo museum which was fascinating and Abraham was so knowledgeable. Then, after lunch overlooking the river Nile, we went to the pyramids and the sphinx, we went inside a pyramid and had a lovely camel ride. A few people mentioned how much harrassment you get around this area but I have to say that we didnt get any at all! (Maybe this was due to us having our own guide)
We also visited a perfume and papyrus shop before heading back to the airport for our flit back to Hurghada. Ahmed called us on the way back to make sure we were happy with everything which of course we were! We had the best day ever and I would recommend Egypt Tours Portal to everyone.
