    Review of: Private Cairo Layover Tour to Cairo Museum, Islamic Cairo & Elkhalili
    I live in New York and was planning this 1 week trip to Cairo with my husband for sometime I wanted a customized itinerary. Hamada was extremely patient and helpful with me. I changed my itinerary a few times and it was always politely accepted by Hamada. We were escorted by the representative at airport and our tour guide Mohammad showed us around Cairo – pyramids, sphinx, museum, citadel etc, he was very knowledgeable and calm person. The driver was a kind fellow and always happy to show us around. The highlight of my trip was the overnight camping in white desert, our guide was an expert and took us to amazing spots -black desert, crystal mountain, white desert old and new. We also did some sand boarding on the way and it was really fun. Our local guide was really smart and fun to talk to, he made the camp, bon fire, prepared fresh meal, Egyptian tea while we camped in the white desert under full moon…this was just out of the world experience. Hamada arranged all our tours and every guide we met was polite and professional. They never asked us for any tip and any unprofessional comment, we did tip them with the gratitude of their service.
    I would definitely visit Egypt again and would only go with EgyptFunTours, they were very reliable, flexible and fun to be with.
    Thanks Hamda and team for your help, me and my husband had a great time!
