We had a fantastic morning with Samir, first walking through a very lively Friday market and then wandering through the quiet south quarter of the City of the Dead. Samir gave us lots of very interesting information and guided us through the narrow alleys that go in between the tombs! We visited the interior of various mausoleums that have been... More

We sailed in a beautiful dahabeya down the Nile, eating delicious Egyptian food, and stopping at villages and archaeological sites along the way. Our guide, Samir, wove each piece we saw into a bigger picture of Ancient and current Egypt. Our group spanned from middle school age on one end to history professor on the other, and Samir had us...

We spent 5 days/4 nights on a dahabeya cruise, one night in Abu Simbel, and did several day trips in Cairo. I've lived in Egypt for 3 years, seen most of these sites before, but visiting them with Samir and the other RealEgypt guides was like seeing them for the first time. Even at the Giza pyramids, which we'd visited... More

We cruised the Nile for several days on a dahabeya and also booked a single day tour of the pyramids. The in-depth knowledge of guide Samir Abbass was amazing: as a college professor who has traveled internationally with groups of students, I would advise anyone who desires an engaging, informative experience in this critical part of the ancient world to...

The quality, attention, and detail provided by Samir Abbass and RealEgypt on our recent tour of the Nile and the Pyramids cannot be overemphasized. Samir's knowledge of and love for both ancient and contemporary Egypt was on full display at every site we visited -- and we saw so much during this tour. Engaging and informative, Samir elucidated not only... More

Everything was absolutely prefect. 3 days tour package tailored in chronological order ending with the museum to wrap everything up. Great guide, great transportation and great interactions with our 2 kids. Highly recommended. Thanks to Dalia, our guide, she was fantastic. Kids loved her!

We requested an in-depth private tour and Real Egypt delivered: they worked with our schedule and determined the best fit for all the many activities we wanted to do so that we could best maximize our time....

Before we arrived, Susan was amazing and made all the planning easy for us. We visited the pyramids and Cairo museum with Samir and it was so interesting.

Our visit to Aswan, Egypt was great and Real Egypt planned everything perfectly. All of our guides were friendly, professional and open to change when necessary. I highly recommend Samir and his team at Real Egypt if you're planning tours of Egypt and beyond!
