A fantastic tour of Cairo's highlights. Rasha is extremely engaging, knowledgeable and well organised. Seeing the wonders of ancient Egypt with Rasha brought everything to life and I learned so much not just about the Pharaohs but also Coptic, Islamic and modern Cairo. A superb introduction to Cairo and Egypt made all the more enjoyable by Rasha - I really felt I was seeing the city with a good friend, at our own pace and seeing the things we wanted to.
