Cairo, Greater Cairo, Egypt

The press has been unfair to Egypt capitalizing and dramatizing protests into something more than what they are.

You would walk all over Cairo and feel perfectly safe. If Egypt is on your bucket list, now is the time to go. Egypt is safe, friendly, economical and not marinated in global tourists.

Having a Master's in Egyptology and having been a tour guide since 1991, I will give you a deep insight into the history and culture of ancient and modern Egypt. I will tailor the tour according to your budget, needs and interests. I design and take tours in Cairo, Alexandria and I also do Nile cruise ships in Luoxr and Aswan. I will be happy to book your hotel, cruise boat and domestic flights.

I belong to the new generation of Egyptians who believe that Egypt is more than just the Pyramids and the Sphinx. I have a passion for discovering hidden corners in Egypt and unveiling the secrets of this fascinating, complex and diverse country. I have traveled extensively in Egypt and abroad and I love cultural crossings, great conversations and, of course, authentic, delicious food!

My tours are created with the aim of sharing with you my favorite spots of Egypt, be it places, neighborhoods, cafes or restaurants. The tours are highly original and planned with a lot of care and attention to detail. These tours will be personalized so that you can experience the local culture and mingle with real Egyptians.

Take a minute to go through my 7-day Egypt tour. I have carefully customized this tour to enable you to see the must-do attractions of Egypt and learn much about Egypt, its people and its culture. It's my pleasure to offer this tour at a reasonable price.

If you have any questions, I'll be more than happy to help you out. I usually answer in 20-25 minutes.

A Recent Review of this guide

On top of his extensive knowledge about ancient Egypt, Tarek took really good care of us, showing us around! We did all the things that were on our list that we wanted to do, and Tarek was always available for comments about culture, religion, history and politics. Highly recommend.
