We had an amazing two day tour with Ereen in Cairo. We selected the Pyramids and the City of Cairo tour earlier this month. Ereen was always prompt and early waiting for us at our hotel. Our driver, Mustafa was courteous and navigated the hectic roads of Cairo with grace. Ereen is an Egyptology expect. She provided us with a wealth of information for every destination we visited. She protects her clients and ensures they have an utmost pleasant experience in Egypt. I would definitely book her again!
