Can anyone recommend a tour guide?  I'm interested in both the Pyramids and the synagogues in Cairo?

I used Uber for cairo travel.  If you specifically need a tour guide you can PM me, I used him for longer distance driving.

You can buy a sim in the airport for cheap.

Beware for harassment and no matter how many people tell you this you still need to hear it again. It's not a reason not to go it's just to be aware of.

You can pay entrance fees at all sites upon arrival. Getting into the synagogue is no problem as long as you come during hours its open, usually during mid day. Its a popular tourist destination not limited to jews.  See google https://goo.gl/maps/RtK8shNTtLMYrrFTA. As always make sure you download google maps before you get to Egypt service can possibly be spotty.  Do not use drivers off the street, only use proper verified drivers. If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

Apparently the Ben Ezra shul closes at 4. Anyone have a contact or idea to get in later?
