My husband and I had a three day layover in Cairo and wanted to see the city and its highlights. Ahmed was well organized, friendly and accommodating. He is knowledgable and provided us with not to be missed tours of the pyramids, Cairo Museum and Coptic Cairo as well as fascinating glimpses of life in Cairo today. We felt well cared for and safe with Ahmed. His insights into what is happening in the middle east today were especially appreciated. I will contact him again should we return to visit Luxor
