          Enriching tour of Egyptian history
          I enjoyed my tour with Manar and Azzat. Manar and Azzat were my guides to the Cave Church, the Hanging Church, the Coptic Museum, Coptic Cairo and the Synagogue Ben Ezra. Manar openly shared with me her vast knowledge of Egypt's history. I encourage you to book this tour through Travelish Tours. You won't be disappointed.

          Coptic Christian Egypt real-life tour
          Manar our guide was knowledgeable and made the trip interesting and relatable. We enjoyed seeing the Coptic museum, the synagogue, and the two Coptic churches in the neighborhood. For me a highlight of the tour, was the drive through MANSHIYAT NASSER on the way to the cave church. This is not on most visitors itinerary but I loved it. These people collect the garbage for most of Cairo and reportedly have one of the highest recycling rates anywhere, upwards of 90% of solid waste gets recycled in this city within a city.

          Coptic Tour Cairo with Manar
          Great day out doing the Coptic Cairo tour with Manar. She provided insightful, comprehensive and interesting explanations on the various spots and churches we visited. Manar is very friendly, chatty and kept us entertained throughout the tour. We were taken to a pretty cool local restaurant for lunch and thanks for showing us authentic Egyptian food! Driver Mr Ahmed was also friendly and constantly held doors opened for us. Thank you to Manar and Ahmed for the experience.

          Fun-filled Day in Alexandria w/ Wonderful Guide MoMo
          MoMo, once again, provided the best day of fun activities!!! Guest wanted something not so "touristy" and some of Alex's best fresh seafood. Travelish came thru by amazing the group with beautiful views from the grounds of Montazah Palace and a yacht sail on the Mediterranean Sea, plus a visit to the renowned Alexandria Library and a stop for the tastiest seafood at White & Blue. The group had never indulged in such well-seasoned grilled squid. Happy guests always have smiles on their faces and these guests left beaming from this full-day experience in Alexandria. We have Travelish to thank for this wonderful fun. Definitely highly recommend MoMo for again delivering that 5* service to the guests.

          Insightful guide for Alexandria
          Momo Salah was a wonderful tour guide! My husband and I were taken by Momo from our cruise ship for a one day tour of Alexandria. He was very adaptive since we kind of dumped an overly ambitious tour plan that we had put together the night before. He handled it with grace and with some quick thinking was able to pick our best routes and timing in order to not only squeeze it all in but with out rushing us. We even had time to end with a lovely lunch close to our port with fabulous views and to enjoy this thoughtful deeply caring young man. Thank you Momo!

          Whirlwind tour of Alexandria
          My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed a two-day guided tour of Alexandria. It was a whirlwind with all of the major sites but we never felt rushed. What an amazing city! We saw catacombs, Roman ruins, St. Mark's Church, the incredible library, a beautiful mosque and more. Our guide, Wessam, was knowledgeable, flexible and fun. She kept us on track. Our driver, Mahmoud, was friendly and professional, navigating some of the crazy traffic in a calm way. Highly recommend.

          Cave Church is a must see
          Manar, our tour guide, was professional and knowledgeable. She contacted us the night before and sent her photo so we could easily find her at our hotel. She again texted when she arrived. She helped us get coffee. She gave lots of background on every site we toured and even while we were driving to the site. She was flexible—she added some sites on the tour that we requested. The included lunch was good and not like anything I would eat in the US. Mahmoud was a safe and professional driver. The church cave is magnificent. We were the only tourists there. The garbage city was interesting. The Coptic museum is interesting. I recommend you go on this tour.

          Fantastic streetlevel tour of downtown area, great guide
          This type of private tour depends on the guide, and with Momo we had the best. He listened to what we wanted to see, suggested sites we had not thought of, and provided an interesting commentary of everything we saw. We went to sites we would not have thought of (Italian Coptic church), to sites still under construction, but important to see in the future (Greek Roman museum), and to the oldest pastry shop in Alexander (1927) where we enjoyed pastacio cakes. We highly recommend Momo as your guide; you will have a customized trip to remember.

          Not worth the money paid.
          Our guide was Ayub. He was not very well informed about the different mosques and museum. Lunch was fine, he gave us a choice of Egiptian food and we chose chicken Shwarma. We felt the guide was in a hurry to cover the tour, which was covered in 3 and a half hours including lunch, while the brochure says it would last 7 hours. The tour guide didn't cover all the mentioned mosques - we missed the Mosque of Amr Ibn-Al-As and the Islamic Cairo, Midan Silah ad-Din. So half the tour was not given to us. Too much money for what we got

        My cousin and myself visited Egypt in the month of Feb and we selected the Alexandria Day tour package from Cairo. We started from Cairo early morning and reached Cairo back by sunset. I must say it was a very eventful day. We had a chance to visit and learn about Alexandria’s history from the very knowledgeable and informative tour guide Mahmoud. He was very friendly and fun too. I enjoyed the seafood lunch as well. All in all, we loved the tour and would recommended others too!!

        From the moment we met our guide Gouda to the moment we parted ways was a nonstop education of Alexandria and all things Egypt. We initially signed up for just an Alexandria tour but Gouda offered to keep it going as we drove back to Cairo with a stop at Giza to do some shopping for papyrus art, silver jewelry and oils after we had mentioned our appreciation of oils and jewelry. On our way back we got pumped up when we saw the pyramids and he asked if we would like to see the pyramid light show after dark which we all agreed to. While at the show Gouda went back to the jewelry store we visited and picked up our order. Gouda is a great guide with great energy and a lot of knowledge that he will enthusiastically share. Also took us to his shawarma spot in his neighborhood that was really good.

        Had a fantastic experience!
        The driver was nice and polite, driving as safe as possible in Egypt.
        The guide was absolutely superb - very flexible, altered the itinerary based on our interests and was sharing loads of interesting facts and stories about the places we’ve visited (+ a thousand other questions we had).
        We didn’t expect much from the trip but were really impressed and would recommend to anyone!

        It was an all around great experience and great trip, our guide Mo was knowledgeable and we saw great things, …it was great until our driver brought us back to Cairo to a “national papyrus institute” and trinket shop that totally ripped off myself and my travel partner as we thought we were buying authentic souvenirs, rather than cheap foreign crap. As we were relatively new to the “markets” culture, now several days later in Egypt we know much better. Buy your stuff in the museum shops!

        I had planned a 7 day itinerary with this agency , and everything worked out perfectly. The transfer services were excellent , Mustafa our driver was always on time ,safe driving and my kids loved his company.
        Mohammed did our tours in Cairo , he was both very informative and entertaining, it was so much fun. Mahmoud guided us around Alexandria, which was the most beautiful experience and the lunch was just superb. Another Mahmoud Farah accompanied us on the Nile Cruise , he was a fountain of knowledge and so accommodating of the kids moods etc.
        We are truly grateful to the entire team for making our trip so memorable and enjoyable.

        Egypt is AMAZING! but Alexandria is not worth it if you have limited time!

        This tour of Alexandria for us provided a basic taste of Roman influence in Egypt, nothing in comparison to Italy, the Egyptian experience was not to be had here. We would strongly recommend spending your time and money in Cairo/Saqqara/Aswan/Luxor if you want to see Egyptian history & relics.

        The dangerous high speed! 3 hr each way drive, filthy toilets and basic food provided, along with a poorly informed guide by an operations manager with limited understanding of the sites was a wasteful experience.

        Upper Egypt is the treasure trove!

        Momo did a great job in giving us the history of Alexandria. He treats you like family. Per our request he deviated from the tour where we finished the afternoon at a relaxing Seafood restaurant near the citadel. Great food, views, and an excellent host.

        Hussain was such a smooth and safe driver from Cairo to Alexandria and back. He is fairly quiet but attentive to our needs (e.g. water, breaks, opening car doors etc.). His car was very comfortable and clean.

        Momo was a complete joy for the day. Being a local to Alexandria, he was very clear with his information about the main sites to see in Alexandria. The restaurant he recommended for lunch was fab.

        Definitely a thumbs up 👍 for this dynamic duo😎

        Momo was a great local guide who allowed us to adapt the trip to visit the spots in Alexandria we wanted to see the most. We ate Egyptian food in a local spot we would never have found ourselves and thoroughly enjoyed the day.
        Mahmoud was also a great driver and we felt very safe the entire day
