If seeking subject matter expertise, and interested in more than just the basic tourist-views, book Tarek - if you are looking for something not listed as a tour I suggest you contact him via email/form, he is very good at communicating (perfect english). Touring was like being in a live documentary, with Q&A, and you can tell he is passionate and has a wealth of knowledge in all Egypts history, and great memory. If i had the money and time I would take all his tours and more. There is a reason he is #1

This was our second day of touring with Tarek and our last day in Cairo. What I truly appreciated was Tarek's flexibility in changing our itinerary so we did not repeat sites we already had already seen. Tarek took us to Giza to ride camels in the desert with a view of the pyramids. This was not with the groups around the pyramids and was an exceptional - private experience. He took us to the Coptic Cairo where we visited a synagogue, cave church followed by the 2nd oldest mosque. We highly recommend!

We hired Tarek for 2 days in Cairo as bookends to another tour we had. Tarek is fabulous! He was our first introduction to the chaos - sounds, streets, excitement - of Cairo. Tarek picked us up in his car and we saw Cairo first hand. Tarek took us to the old city, the fascinating city of the dead, guided us through the narrow streets where we tried local street food - the best food we had in Cairo. He is easy to converse with, he is flexible and very knowledgeable. We would highly recommend.

Tarek is an excellent tour guide!!! We had 2 days with him. We had an amazing time and learned a lot about Egypt. Tarek is very professional, knowledgeable, patient, and most importantly honest. He doesn't sugarcoat anything. We will have him again if we come back to Egypt!!

One of the best tours I've ever done. Tarek was absolutely first class. We had to change the day a little due to heavy early morning fog at the pyramids. Tarek took it all in his stride & provided a fantastic tour, old Cairo in the morning & pyramids in the afternoon were all incredible. Everywhere we went he had encyclopic knowlege. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tarek, an intelligent, knowledgeable and truly nice man to spend an amazing day with.

Our private tour of the Cairo museum with Tarek was a highlight of our stay in Cairo. Tarek is a Cairo university professor with a wealth of knowledge and was able to provide a detailed timeline and background to the many highlights of the museum. I would recommend Tarek to anyone wanting a private tour of the museum or any of the attractions at Giza or Saqqara

Tarek was an expert guide who could answer all of our questions and provide deep insights into the incredible history of the pyramids and beyond. Tarek has an incredible depth of knowledge which he conveyed in an interesting and detailed style. He was a safe driver in the chaotic Cairo traffic and he accommodated all our requests. Tarek was punctual and his car was comfortable and clean. In all, we had a great day. Thanks Tarek!

We highly recommend Tarek for tours in the Cairo area. He was fabulous. Our family spent three days of private tours with Tarek visiting the pyramids and sites of Giza as well as the Cario antiquities Museum and Coptic Cairo area. Tarek's is an exceptional Egyptologist with in-depth knowledge of all things Egypt. He is articulate and his command of the English language is excellent and we had no issues understanding him. If you are going to Egypt, reach out to Tarek. He will not disappoint you.

Tarek was a fantastic guide— incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and insightful. I had three days of tours: Giza, Saqqara/Dashur, and Alexandria and each day was organized perfectly by Tarek. He always had the perfect recommendation for the best way to see each sight. You will see his many years of guiding has made him friends with everybody: security, ticket takers, other guides. He also chose the perfect restaurants each day we tried local food that was absolutely delicious. I strongly recommend him

Tarek led four of us, two couples, on a private tour of Dashshur, Memphis, Saqqara, and Giza for a whole day. His knowledge of the history of his country was exceptional and his command of English was outstanding. We all had a wonderful time. The restaurant he took us to for lunch was one of our better meals in Egypt. I asked Tarek for certain things via email on this trip and he delivered. Tarek was extremely professional and I would certainly recommend him as a guide to anyone visiting in Egypt.

Wonderful full day tour with Tarek to the pyramids, Memphis, and Saqqara. Tarek speaks impeccable English (better than ours!) and his wealth of knowledge about Egyptology drawn from his extended education makes seeing the sights of Ancient Egypt with him a pleasure. He was on time and very accommodating of our needs. I wouldn't hesitate to take another trip with him. Shukran!

Tarek accommodated our every request, agreeing to leave much earlier to beat the crowds and finding the best spot to go for a camel ride. My only VERY small critique is that he knows so much about the pyramids, their history and theories about them, that we spent a bit more time standing and listening than moving around than we would have preferred. HOWEVER, he was wonderful - made us feel welcome and safe and ensured we had a great experience overall.

Tarek was an amazing tour guide! We had super accommodating of our short time and made sure we maximized it. He is a wealth of knowledge as he is completing his PhD in Egyptology and he spoke perfect English. We took this tour with him as well as a Museum tour and both were five stars. We could not recommend using Tarek more!

We had Tarek for 3 full days after picking us up from the airport on a 11pm arrival. We did Cairo and its' nearby. A highlight was a sunrise camel ride from the desert looking to the Giza plateau. These camels were treated wonderfully and very sweet, fabulous. Everything was nicely arranged by Tarek. We very much appreciated and enjoyed his vast knowledge of the history and openness of sharing current local life. Highly recommend multiple days. If you are a foodie (as we are), let him know.

I highly recommend Tarek and this tour. We went to the Egyptian Museum, Ibn Tulun Mosque, the Bazaar etc and also drove through the City of the Dead. He is extremely knowledgeable, experienced and communicative on so many aspects of Cairo including the culture, religion, current economic and political situation, history, archaeology and so much more. He's also extremely honest and straight forward and you wouldn't feel any pressure to go to shops to buy etc. (that's a gem in Cairo!).
