I contacted Samir after booking our flight and hotel to Cairo and asked if he would arrange us to have a guide, and he certainly came through for us. Our guide Yasmeen has a Egyptology degree, and is well versed in not only the ways of ancient Egypt but also current events. Our tour included Coptic Cairo, The Step Pyramid,... More

Yesterday, I spent the morning with Samir on Golden Island with my in-laws. A short ride across the Nile and you enter a village and taking you back several decades. Beautiful smiles from the locals greeted us as we walked through the small farming village located in the middle of a huge city and in the center of the Nile... More

Real Egypt also has a sister company called Real Sudan, which under the leadership of Samir, organises excellent tours to Sudan. North Sudan, which was home to the ancient kingdom of Kush, also offers wonderful and interesting ancient sites, including some magnificent temples and pyramids built by the Kushites. Sudan, in fact, has more pyramids than Egypt. The Kushite kings... More

From the minute we got off the plane with Waleed holding a sign waiting for us, to the very end where he sped us through outgoing customs, for two full weeks everything ran smoothly and we were pampered. Samir, the owner, called/texted us several times during the trip to check in. Our main Egyptologist guides, Dahlia in the north and... More

We had a fantastic morning with Samir, first walking through a very lively Friday market and then wandering through the quiet south quarter of the City of the Dead. Samir gave us lots of very interesting information and guided us through the narrow alleys that go in between the tombs! We visited the interior of various mausoleums that have been... More

We sailed in a beautiful dahabeya down the Nile, eating delicious Egyptian food, and stopping at villages and archaeological sites along the way. Our guide, Samir, wove each piece we saw into a bigger picture of Ancient and current Egypt. Our group spanned from middle school age on one end to history professor on the other, and Samir had us...

We spent 5 days/4 nights on a dahabeya cruise, one night in Abu Simbel, and did several day trips in Cairo. I've lived in Egypt for 3 years, seen most of these sites before, but visiting them with Samir and the other RealEgypt guides was like seeing them for the first time. Even at the Giza pyramids, which we'd visited... More

We cruised the Nile for several days on a dahabeya and also booked a single day tour of the pyramids.
