We had an amazing Cairo tour with Mohamed. From the beginning it was an atmosphere as we would discover the egyptian capital with a friend. He showed us all the interesting sights, shared his deep knowledge in perfect english and managed everything for us. The typical breakfast was just delicious. When we were looking for a tour, we were a bit skeptical since the comments on his tour seemed to be too good to be true - but it is really like that. Even his dinner recommendation for a kosher dish was amazing. Clear “go to tour” for your Cairo visit.

We took a tour with Mohamed Youssef today and we really enjoyed the day with him. He answered all your questions (tour related or not) and had some fun. He brought us to special places where we would never have been able to go to by ourselves. He made sure we had enough water, brought us to nice places to eat and made sure we had enough bathroom breaks. All in all a great day in Cairo and I recommend it to anyone (that understands English) to join Youssef for a day!

Yousef is a great guide, he is genuine, knowledgeable and honest person (which I find rare here in Cairo). He knew the sites well, has very good English and showed us around like locals. We took metro, little tuktuk and went to places we would never have been in other tourist trap tours. He is the best tour guide to visit old Cairo. The tour was so passionately interesting that we spent 7h!! Amazing,thanks for your time

The tour with Youssef was amazing! He took us to interesting places and explained the history of them in a professional and funny way at the same time ! He also took for us a local drink and showed us safely the city and its interesting places. No doubt I would repeat it again and recommend !
