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.
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!
Having a Master's in Egyptology and having been a tour guide since 1991, I'm well versed in mainstream Egyptology as well as other unconventional theories. I'm capable of debating about these theories and contradicting one with the other.
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. I will give you a deep insight into the history and culture of Egypt.
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, so that everybody can see the heritage of Egypt.
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
Tarek was an excellent guide. He picked us up at the appointed time and gave us a great tour of the Pyramids, Museum and Grand Bazaar. He was very knowledgable and very easy to talk to. He never made us feel rushed and gave us options everywhere we went. I would not hesitate to recomend to Tarek to anyone.
