Takla changed my concept about Egypt. I am quite satisfied with his service, his witty remarks and his exceptional knowledge of Alexandria, the pyramids, the sphinx and of Egypt. We are thankful and lucky to have Takla as our guide. He is an asset to your company. If by chance we'll be in Egypt again, I won't hesitate to take Takla as our guide again. The truth is we are proud to have known an Egyptian so kind and accommodating. Please extend also our greetings to our driver, Ibrahim.
