We was picked from our hotel with a cheerful smile from our guide (Maged) and driver , super cleaned Mini bus . The first half of the day we visited the Citadel and the Mohamed Ali mosque, very interesting information and a fantastic view of old Cairo, then we requested to visit the new Mummies museum which is opened recently, We continued our day by visiting the Old market and got enough time to enjoy shopping and sitting in a local cafe for refreshments for us and the kids. Overall everyone was happy and totally satisfied by organising, seems, museums, and buying a lot of gifts for our family back in the Netherlands. recommend with 5 stars plus, and thanks to our guide Maged who made our day Read less Less
