Flexible tour and guide

We booked three-day trips with Aton in Cairo and enjoyed it very much. He was very flexible in the program, and it was customized to our wishes. We visited many historical sites, but also less touristic sites to get an impression of normal daily life in Cairo, including the miserable circumstances of some people (garbage city and people living on cemeteries). Anton responded well to our wishes on what (and what not) to see, do, eat and spend. Express your wishes clearly to him to get what you want. It was a bit surprising to us we had to pay extra for a carriage (US$ 46) on the Giza pyramids site (walking was not a real option according to Aton) and Aton didn't accompany us on the site as a guide. This could be added to the tour description.

Aton M.

Thank you, my friends, with all my heart for all that you have said so well to me. I'm sure that you will come to Egypt again, according to the proverb that says : Who drinks from the water of the Nile will come again. I am waiting for you ???? Aton

Full Day Cairo

Aton was a great guide, hospitable, and honored my crazy requests. He is super knowledgeable and personable and a fast driver. His car is not brand new, but it does the trick and blows cold A/C. Highly recommend! Just a heads up to all travelers that like to visit off the beaten path, you MUST tell your tour guide this or you will be taken to touristy restaurants and souvenir shops. These were the only parts of the tour we did not love.

Aton M.

I am really very happy that you had the pleasure of all the visits that you have with me. I hope to see you again. Sunny regards, Aton

Full Day Alexandria

Aton was unable to be with us this day, but arranged for his colleagues Neven (tour guide) and driver Ahmeda. They were both WONDERFUL! Neven is super knowledgeable and personable and Ahmeda was fast driver with a very comfortable car with good A/C. Highly recommend both! Just a heads up to all travelers that like to visit off the beaten path, you MUST tell your tour guide this or you will be taken to touristy restaurants and souvenir shops. These were the only parts of the tour we did not love.

Aton M.

Thank you Kristalle with all my heart that you understood that I was in a difficult situation where I had to be with my father in the hospital due to his sudden illness which required me to find a quick solution for you by booking a guide and another car. Thank you for your kindness in general. I wish to see you again. Sunny regards, Aton.

Airport Arrival Transfer

Aton communicates well & quickly. We appreciated his transfer service. He will wait for you outside of the airport and you will walk to his car in the lot approx 200m walk. His car is in good condition and would be considered average 4 door sedan (similar to small Nissan by US standards)

Aton M.

Thank you a lot Kristalle for all what you wrote about me and my car also. The happiness of the tourist is my first goal and it makes me continue in this work. I hope to see you again. Sunny regards, Aton
