I have to first say that our cruise ship cancelled its two day stop in Egypt due to security concerns. However, I had booked an overnight private tour with Debbie Senders (who runs Casual Cairo) one year in advance. Debbie was excellent in providing advice, insight and suggestions and helped tailor our itinerary in so many ways. Plus, I bugged... More

The tour of the Pyramids was very well planned and organised. The pyramids were presented in chronological order. First we visited the Stepped Pyramid at Saqqara, and then ventured on to the Bent Pyramid and the Red Pyramid at Dashur. We ended the day at Giza. The guide was informative and insightful. He was pleasant to be with, charming and... More

We had a fantastic all day tour of the pyramids - starting with the Stepped Pyramid at Saqqara, moving on to the Bent Pyramid and the Red Pyramid at Dahshur before finishing off with the three pyramids at Giza, in effect seeing the pyramids in chronological order. Saqqara and Dahshur were by far the best, being further away from Cairo... More

A few years back I did a two week holiday in Egypt and relied heavily on Debbie and her team. I had a long layover planned for Cairo and decided to call upon her services again. I was not dissapointed. She picked me up at the airport for a wonderful day of touring the Cairo area. While I was focused... More

When I went to Cairo, I wanted to visit some specific places that were extremely off the beaten path. These were places that most people didn't even know about. I was amazed at how knowledgeable Debbie was about these places. She took me on a customized tour covering all the places I wanted to visit and then some of her... More

Originally, I was to be on my own for two days before my son, a seasoned backpacker, joined me and was a bit nervous about wandering around on my own. I also wanted to visit a couple of places that were hard to get to via public transport. After reviews on TripAdvisor, I emailed Debbie and she organized the tours... More

I'm a solo female traveler, and have always been one. I had always wanted to visit Cairo, but on my own terms. I found Casual Cairo Detours online and was sure glad I gave them a try. I booked a tour of the City of the Dead, which was much more than just one site. Ex-pat and owner Debbie, and... More

I can't say enough about our experience with Casual Cairo. After seeing the company mentioned on a discussion board I checked out the website and began corresponding with Debbie. I had some initial thoughts based on our interests. She provided details and recommendations to create a true one of a kind experience for us. Our travel party was challenging spanning... More

We had the pleasure of taking 3 "tours" with Debbie Senter as a supplement to an Abercrombie and Kent tour of Cairo and the Nile. We contacted Casual Cairo Detours run by Debbie Senter to see if she would take us to some sites that maybe were different or not covered by our tour. Debbie is an American who has... More

We're back home from our amazing trip to Egypt. We booked two tours with Casual Cairo Detours. The first tour we took was a camel ride to the Giza pyramids where we had a picnic breakfast. The camel ride with Nazr(camel stable owner) through a small village in the wee hours of the morning was quite a memorable experience. Melanie... More
