Tour: #723966, Whale Valley (Wadi Al-Hitan), Wadi Rayan & Pottery Village Private Day Tour, Cairo, Egypt    view tour
Date: Feb 23/20

We were picked up at the agreed time, transported comfortably to the Fayoum, and transferred to a 4X4 vehicle for the trip into the desert, which was most enjoyable, exciting and a bit unexpected...driving the dunes and viewing whale bones in the dessert was extraordinary. Our guide, Youssef, made a stop for us at the Karanis site, which is not often visited but which we wanted to see. I would recommend this tour, and Youssif, if you want to experience something a little different on your trip to Egypt.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your review. It was fantastic trip. I hope meeting more tourists from South of Africa in The future Youssef

This four day tour of Egypt was a perfect introduction to an amazing country and it is a perfect overview of three of the most important cities in the country. Youssef was awesome! He was knowledgeable, funny, and made sure we had a wonderful time. I can't recommend him or this tour highly enough. If you are looking at this, don't think about it any more. Book it! You will be very happy you did!

Tour: #723966, Whale Valley (Wadi Al-Hitan), Wadi Rayan & Pottery Village Private Day Tour, Cairo, Egypt    view tour
Date: Jan 3/20

If you have a free day to spare I highly recommend whale valley. The landscape, fossils and whole experience was exhilarating, stunning and memorable. The visit to the lakes and waterfalls were an added bonus. I would recommend packing a snack as lunch is quite late (but worth the wait) and the drive from Cairo is long, considering the traffic. I would recommend starting the tour as early as possible. Youssef is a good driver and very patient and professional.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for booking with me

Youssef is very cooperative, and patient. He takes you around, and completely surrenders to how you want to arrange your tour. He showed us some new unusual places in Alexandria. We had the most amazing Felucca experience in Cairo at Maadi.

This time Youssef took us to see his home town Alexandria. Just like the other two tours he took the time to make this an unforgettable experience. Even though it takes over two hours to get there from Cairo it’s certainly worth it! Youssef is one of the best guides we ever met.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are one of the best tourist I have met . You have a great heart . You are welcome any time in Egypt

We can really recommend this tour. It takes you into the desert. Youssef prepared for us a 4X4 drive (very exciting!) to see the prehistorical remains. Afterwards we saw the hidden lakes and waterfall. Youssef also arranged a local lunch where we ate like bedouins.

Youssef is flexible and very accommodating. This was a long day as we had arranged for Youssef to drive us back to Cairo. El Alamein was an important history stop for me as I wanted to learn more about the battles taking place here. We made several stops. Youssef had a lot of information to share and is very pleasant.

Youseff went above and beyond and made this trip a awesome experience. He created a entire itinerary just for us, so we can visit all the places we wanted in one day. (Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Egyptian Museum, Cairo, The market khan-elkhalili, Papyrus Paper Office, Dinner Niles Cruise) YES, ALL in ONE day. Also I needed to buy souvenirs, he took me and patiently waited for me to make my purchase. He is fluent in English and Spanish, he is very knowledgeable! Thank you so much Youseff!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your words. You are very good person . I am happy I have 2 new friends in my life . See you soon here in Egypt or in Usa

We got so much more than we expected. When we got in the car we straight away completely changed the itinerary. Not only did Youssef accommodate our interests, but he did so with good humor and perseverance in locating the obscure sights we had found in the Lonely Planet guide book. His warmth and knowledge of the city made our day an unforgettable delight. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: This tour was one of my best tour my life . Thanks for choosing me . I hope see you soon

I have an interest in history in general and WWII in particular and thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The museum is nice, and the three very different cemeteries were each interesting in their own way. We were in Cairo, and so spent 3 hours driving to El Alamein and 3 hours driving back. Some people might not want to spend so much time driving. It would be much better to leave from Alexandria. Youssef is knowledgeable, competent and accommodating. I would recommend him and the tour.

Tour: Whale Valley (Wadi Al-Hitan), Wadi Rayan & Pottery Village Private Day Tour, Cairo, Egypt
Date: Sep 28/19

This was quite an adventure, driving out into the desert in a 4-wheel drive SUV to see the Whale Valley, and then driving to various desert sights by going up and down over sand hills. Youssef is knowledgeable, competent, and accommodating. I sometimes did have a little trouble understanding his English, but that was probably mainly due to my age and hearing loss. A person with a younger brain and good ears would likely have no problem.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for you .you are very good person . I hope meeting you again

Tour: Whale Valley (Wadi Al-Hitan), Wadi Rayan & Pottery Village Private Day Tour, Cairo, Egypt
Date: Sep 25/19

This is a very interesting tour that most people are not aware of it even locals. The area has a lot to offer from eco tourism, natural beauty of lakes to desert adventures. Its a reasonable distance from Cairo especially if you are on the south side of the city and it is definitely a change of pace from the history fatigue that many visitors encounter in Egypt. This is a new tour for our guide but he certainly did his best to make it enjoyable, Youssef is willing to be flexible and to work with you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for you. I did my best in this tour after the original guide canceled it. Now I have good experience with this area. I hope see you again in Egypt

Youssef is a fantastic guide who gives a flavor of what life is like in Alexandria while showing you the sites both ancient and modern. We walked, took a horse and carriage, a taxi and a private car during our tour. Youssef showed us everything in a friendly, laid back fashion it felt like we were hanging out with an old friend. Everywhere we went Youssef was known and liked by all. WE have gone on many private tours all over the world and this rates as one of the very best. We highly recommend Youssef.

Youssef was excellent - he was honest about issues in Egypt, knowledgeable about the history and sites of Alexandria, had a good sense of humor, and was very engaging. Although it was a bit of a whirlwind tour (because of our time restraints), he did an excellent job, and we got a great overview of the major sites in Alexandria. Overall, highly recommended.

Youssef and the driver were on time. He gave us a lot of details about the places that we visited. Pricing was fair and the time we spent at each location was long enough to take pictures and to enjoy the location. We did a lot in one day and I would highly recommend this tour for anyone traveling from Giza or Cairo.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks alot. I enjoyed with you alot . You are very good person . I hope see you again here in Egypt as friends
