Our tours were excellent, but the cities of Cairo and Alexandria are not pleasant places. We toured with Alex City Tours, and highly recommend them. ...

Took the shuttle into the city. Very easy and cheap to take a horse-drawn buggy to see the little historic sights that the city has to offer. The city is intriguing although full of litter but worth a visit. ...

The city has some interesting sites to visit (the new library, catacombs, mosque, citadel), but the infrastructure is crumbling (no police, no garbage collection).

We were here November 22 & 23, as riots were getting really heated (and deadly) in Tahrir Square. Excursions to the Museum were cancelled. Fortunately, we had booked a private excursion with the excellent Egypt Daily Tours, and owner Rasha El-Ashmawy was our guide. She sent a driver to us in Alexandria (it's 3 hours to the Pyramids) and the drive was eye-opening. No traffic lights, no stop ...

For this port we used Memphis Tours and did an overnight in Cairo. Our guide was Tarek and we had the time of our lives. We felt very safe with Tarek as he was a former Egyptian bodybuilding champion. He is very knowledgeable and always protected us from being harassed by vendors. He introduced us to a trusted vendor where we negotiated a fair price for pictures with camels by the Pyramids ahead ...
