Cairo Weekend - July 2023
Jul 27 - Jul 30, 2023
We had a wonderful experience with our trip to Cairo. It was relatively last minute, and Amr was great in working with us to make sure that we saw what we wanted within our budget. On the ground in Cairo, Mohammed was wonderful with helping us with our arrival and departure from the airport, including making sure that our visas were all handled properly and quickly. Mina also greeted us upon arrival to ensure that we made it safely into to city and to our airport.
The majority of our time was spend with our wonderful driver, Hassan, and our wonderful guide, Hagar. Both were always extremely punctual. We don't know what we would have done with Hassan getting us around as we would not have been up for driving! He made our trip very safe and comfortable. Hagar was an incredible source of information on Egyptian history and culture, and she was a pleasure to spend time with in general. She was very attentive to our needs and requests (for example, she adapted our original itinerary so that we could visit the Khan El-khalili Bzaar, which was not part of the original plan), she always anticipated our wanting water, coffees, snacks, etc., and she always made sure to ask that we were seeing everything that we wanted and getting all of the information that we were curious about and more.
We were in Cairo for such a short visit that we will definitely need to return, and we would hope to work with the same group again.
