Ereen is an excellent tour guide and took great care of us while we were in Cairo. She customized our tour with airport transfers and visits to some of Cairo's most amazing places. She was very pleasant and patient, never rushing us. Her knowledge and presentation of ancient Egyptian history is quite impressive. Since we had no Egyptian currency, Ereen covered our entrance fees, so we just settled up at the end of the day. She made us feel safe throughout our visit. We had a delightful 2 days with Ereen!
