We are a family of five children aged 13,6 and 4. My wife and I love to travel and Cairo was on our bucket list. Obviously security is paramount when you have children so great deliberation was taken when planning this trip. We decided to go with Mohamed because of the good reviews,his prompt response and reassurance for our safety...and of course the pyramid view. My wife felt comfortable to book with him. From collection at the airport on Sunday night to our going home Friday morning not once did I feel any unease or concern for the safety of my family. On arrival we ended up having a choice of 2 apartments,we had booked the three bedroom with lovely roof terrace but opted to stay in the two bedroom apartment which had enough beds for all and was larger and more appropriate for the children. The roof terrace would of been a worry for us with small kids. The apartment was fine,well equipped an Mohamed had kindly left bread, plenty of water and some provisions for us. It has a large front room giving the kids plenty of room to play. A special mention and thanks to Mohamed our guide for the week,he patiently put up with us and was there for us every step of the way,thanks for the lovely meal with your family. All in all we had a great week,we're looked after very well and look forward to returning to Eygpt in the not to distant future. Daniel and Emma,Feb 2015
Happy tohear that you liked my suggestion to stay in the other apartment which i felt from the beginning it will be nicer for your wonderful daughters :)
We really felt very happy to have you and Emma and the girls , and we had wish to have you longer time :) we will look forward to have you again and again in Egypt :) we still have much interesting places to show it you..warm regards for the wonderful English family :)
The good- Mohamed Fawzy and Mohamed are friendly, extremely helpful hosts and will make your stay a breeze. They will arrange everything for you and help in any way they can to make your stay easy and safe. Our kitchen was stocked with fresh vegetables, fruits, and bread, and our hosts were always available to help us and answer our questions. The apartment was fine, nothing wrong with it, but nothing special other than the pyramid view.
The bad- There was a miscommunication at the beginning of our stay about the price of airport pickup. My understanding was that it was complimentary, but it is not, so I ended up with some surprise charges at the end of our stay. Make sure you get a price breakdown from Mr. Fawzy before your trip, because it includes all of his prices and is helpful to have (I was never sent this breakdown). But I would also suggest making sure that you do your own research about fair prices in Egypt before your trip. Our hosts brought us to many restaurants and shops with extremely inflated prices. Most of these places seemed to be owned by their friends and family. Like I said, they will make your stay very easy, but don't count on it being the most budget friendly way to see the city.
Cassandra, first of all i would like to say thanks for the nice words you said and plz let me comment on your words about pick up..
*1. I never promised you free pick up or drop off service and i never mentioned that in my airbnb profile page..and i asked you to show me any mail from my side saying that i promised you that.... but you could not.
- some thing else i was writing to you, asking you about your arrival time, you stayed one month to reply to me..
so how can i remember if we talked about pick up price or not with your very delyed answers..
( and you said that you were traveling to many countries...but sry..it was not my problem that you had no time
for communication, till very shortly before your arrival..( so it was mainly your issue).
*2. You complained that the pick up price ( which is 30 usd) is high and i sent you a link from Cairo airport transfer services, and you saw by your self that, the airport pick up service cost 40 usd for 3 pax from Cairo international airport to Al-Aharam- Abou El-Hool St., (or The Pyramids gate, Sphinx St.,) .. So i really do not understand what did you expected exactly..
*3. You should tell in your review that ((( i did the drop off for you for free cos you cos you played stuipd game and pretended that it was included))) even if you could not prove that promised you that and even if you were the one who asked for the pick up service..not me...
*4. All my services prices are mentioned on my own website, and i already sent you a link to it together with my phone numbers and contact deatils, and i think you were too lazy to check it..or you inteded to do that.
*5. Sry Cassandra, i think you expected every thing for free, cos you are on a budget..but plz remember..i am not running a charity office..and to be honest i never saw some body like you..i was really disappointed of your behaviours...
*6. Prices for meals in decent clean restaurant are about 15 to 20 usd and if you going to 5 stars restaurants you can expect 40 to 50 usd..i think you paid with your guide 15$ which is the lowest in decent restaurants..and finally you could tell the guide two words ( no thanks )..and you could eat from street food..which is not safe and i would never recommend it to my guests.. Cos it is not clean enough and it may cos belly disorder..i can not carry this risk..
*7. Finally Cassandra, i do not want to be rude, but i will be honest..you got and your friends from me 5 compliments which cost almost the amount you paid for accommodation ( cos i wanted to help in your very limited budget) and you are still thinking i was offering you expensive airport ride (which you did not pay) , and even when you saw the transfer prices in cairo airport web page..??
Then Let me say sry that i did not give you bocket money while you were here...but i still doubt that you would be happy for that too..
I had wish to see appreciatation from your side, cos i did my best..and i am happy that you enjoyed your trip in Egypt with us, but i am not happy with your review, cos it is not fair.
The reservation was canceled 132 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
me and my friends visited cairo in the first week of jan.... we looked at many options and zeroed on to Mohammed because of his prompt response and reviews.... after the trip we were so happy that we made the correct decision.... tis was our first tim in egypt and from the moment we landed in Cairo to the time we left, Mohammed ensured that we had a memorable experience... he was available all the time for any assistance and went out of his way to make our stay comfortable....our flight was delayed by almost four hours.... however mohammed promptly modified our itinerary and ensured that we did not miss out on anything..... we would also like to mention Marwa, our guide and timor, our driver..... any one visiting egypt for first time can feel confident and rely on Mohammed to have a safe and memorable egypt tour..... we indeed had a hassle free vacation and mohammed - THANX FOR THE WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE.....
Thanks Arun, i am looking forward to welcome you and your friends back to Egypt, i really enjoyed having you as my guests, and i wish to see you again and again :) next time i will be happy to be my guests in my house in Luxor to show you more interesting places in the South too :)
So..plz come back s(phone number hidden)n :)
Graciela said it all, but to add to her comments: Yes, the view is amazing, but the welcome from Mohamed is even more so! He was very responsive right from our initial contact, and guided our driver from the desert to his location.
The apartment was very acceptable, hot water always available, and everything in working order. It was very nice being in a neighbor-hood environment. Thank you Mohamed for having basics on hand (oil, eggs, spices) and also for showing Denis the ropes. In no time at all, he was 'walking like an Egyptian' . . . in other words, navigating the neighborhood and getting Egyptian prices.

THE VIEW IS AMAZING!!! Get ready to be welcomed with open arms and immersed into Giza. A loud and friendly place with warm and loving people! Mohamed is wonderful! He will adjust to your needs and personality. Whatever you need he can arrange for you... and if you just want to sit and talk he is happy to get to know you! We loved sitting on the terrace and looking at the pyramids! It was great to soak in the place and really feel the vibe! We took the guided tour on our second day in Giza and loved having so much information and background provided. Also going out to a cafe to eat with Mohamed was a great experience! As well as drinking fresh sugar cane juice! Please come to Egypt! Don't hesitate! Just jump in, and go for it... you will not regret it!! Bring earplugs for sleeping at night and you will be just fine! :)
:) Thanks for your nice words Tricia, and i think i understand your point about the ear plugs, cos we had by luck a funeral near by and you could not sleep that night, sry for that..but the funeral in our street is very rare..cos people used to live very long age , near the the magnificent Pyramids:)
With Mohamed i found an amazing host on Airbnb and a real friend. He showed us how beatiful Cairo is, how wonderful the Pyramids Area is, and introduced us to some of the nicest people i ever met. The view from his apartement was legendery, every day we woke up with the view on one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. We had great food, and spent some of the most inspiring time with Mohamed. Also the Apartement was very clean, the streets were full of live, and the area was very safe. In addition Mohamed helped us to realize a Videoproduction in Cairo, which would not be possible without him. That all makes Mohamed the absolutely perfect host, who not only opens his house to his guests, but also helps with everything (Jeep tours in the dessert, horse/camel rides, meeting authetic people, creating a movie). I can advise everyone to spent his vacation here, you will love your time in Cairo. Thank you Mohamed for the wonderfull safe time and for all of your help. You do an amazing Job.
Thanks Jakub, you and your team are more than welcome any time, i have earned you as friends and it was really nice to get to know you all, wish you a big success with your Project, and i am looking forward for a new cooperation between us, again thanks for being my guests and wish to see you again soon.
