    Amazing experience
    “My husband and I had a ten hour lay-over in Cairo and luckily found Egypt Fun Tours while researching tour companies online. The owner, Hamada, picked us up from the airport and brought us around Cairo. He took us to see the pyramids, which was a memory I will never forget. Even though our flight arrived in the evening and the entrance to the pyramids was already closed, he was able to get us very close to them and we were able to have an amazing view. We then had dinner at a restaurant with beautiful views of the pyramids and sphinx and then walked around Giza. Later, we drove to the Khan El Khalili Bazaar and after walking around for awhile went to have tea at a very old tea house there in the bazaar. We were very comfortable and impressed with Hamada and his driver. He was extremely knowledgeable and taught us so much about Egypt and and all the areas we were in. My favorite moment was when he brought us to a beautiful mosque just at the end of the bazaar that once simultaneously served the purpose of a school, a church and a hospital. I would highly recommend Egypt Fun Tours to anyone. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience!”

    Amazing layover tour!

    “We had 12 hour layover in Cairo, and our guide Hani waited patiently for us when we had a few visa issues entering the country! We got on our tour, and had the best experience ever! We saw the pyramids, the sphinx, Islamic Cairo and rode through the city! We were also treated to a local restaurant with amazing falafel and various other local dishes! And we wrapped up our tour with a visit to a papyrus art stop and a visit to the oldest bazaar in the middle east! Well worth the time and money!”

    Great Guided Tour of Pyramids
    We travelled to Cairo on Friday May 3, 2019 from Toronto. We landed at 0530 and was met by a representative of Fun Tours at the departure gate.
    We were only on a layover of 6 hours and the tour company came with a private van, water, a driver and a guide. I was travelling with my husband and 12 year old daughter.
    Our guide was Ahmed, he was excellent. Being a Friday in Egypt was good as it is a holiday and less traffic. They took us on a tour of old Cairo, we stopped for a falafel it was excellent.
    Then to the Pyramids which open at 0730, was a good thing too as it was very warm by 0900. Ahmed took pictures of us and gave us a really great tour.
    We went to the Khalili Bazaar right their for a few little gifts, post cards and we were on our way. We stopped at PHARAONIC PAPYRUS MUSEUM on the way back and bought a small picture after learning about the paper.
    At about 10AM we were done, heat and an overnight flight wore heavily on my daughter and husband.
    I highly recommend this tour group and Ahmed, they were quick at answering my husbands questions and the tour ran smoothly.
    We also had no issues at the airport or while travelling.

    Great Layover tour.
    “First things first…I was in Cairo about a week before the protests of 2011 started. As far as the tour was concerned I was very pleased. I was met at the airport by a knowledgeable guide (Sara) who spoke great english and driver. They took me to Giza first then a drive around the Islamic center of the city. We finished by walking around the markets and having a nice dinner in a local tea house. I was very happy with the tour.

    All of that was fine but the real adventure started on our way back to the airport.

    We left with plenty of time to spare but it had rained that morning and the main road to the airport was washed out. Traffic was bad even by Cairo standards. After it began to be apparant that I might not make my flight the driver started looking for alternate ways to get me to the airport. He was on the phone with Hani (the company owner, I think) who called ahead to the airport for me to let them know that I was coming.

    Eventually the guide and I decided that the best thing to do was get out of the car (we had not moved for some time) and start out on foot. With luck we got out ahead of the traffic and convinced an off-duty cab to take us to the remaining mile to the airport. I did make the flight.

    I highly recommend this company as they went above and beyond to take care of me. I hope that after the protests are over tourism will return.”
