Tarek was an amazing tour guide. He is one of the friendliest and most engaging people I've ever met. I love when I can see the passion on a guide's face as they dig deep into a topic very few people know about. That's Tarek. He knows Egypt like very few - and he's so passionate about the history and culture. I felt like I was with a master the entire time I was in Cairo. The coptic churches, mosques, Giza, and the museum were all unbelievable. Some of the most breathtaking experiences of my life.

My father and I had an excellent time with Tarek. He is incredibly knowledgeable, and made each stop on the tour incredibly interesting and engaging. We would give him 6 out of 5 stars if possible!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Alexi. It was a delight to show you and your father around Cairo. I am glad you took the tour and that you had a great time because I did too. Hoping to see you again in the future.
Tarek was great. Very professional and extremely knowledgable. I have used many, many tour guides over the years and he is in the top 1%. Highly recommended
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Mr. James Reinnoldt. It's so nice of you to say that. I will be very happy to visit Bangkok and go around with you. I'm sure you will give me a deep insight into the history and culture of Thailand.

Tarik was an excellent guide. His knowledge of all subjects was excellent and he let me bend the tour anyway I wanted. Easy going and organized. I give him 5 stars out of 5
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to meet Mr. Peter Torza and to show him around the archaeological sites. Mr. Torza showed much interest in the history and culture of Egypt and was quite enthusiastic to know about the Egyptian traditions and way of life.

Tarek is an outstanding guide! His knowledge of Egypt, past and present, is remarkable. He is well-spoken, empathetic, courteous, and promptly replies to all email inquiries. He is fluent in several languages; we found his English speaking skills to be superior. Tarek really helped us to better understand the complex culture and history of Egypt.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was really a pleasure to show Mr. and Mrs.Burke around Cairo and Alexandria. The two tours were good fun. The Burkes showed so much interest in the Egyptian culture and history. I very happily shared my knowledge with them. Our conversations were so interesting that we always lost track of time. I also learnt a lot from them. That's one of the many advantages of working as a guide: You meet wonderful people.

Tarek is about as good as a guide gets. He handles the pre-tour emails promptly and completely so you know him before you get to Egypt. He met us at the airport. Spoke perfect English. Listen to our wants and needs and arranged our tours. He has total knowledge about Egypt's history and what is happening to Egypt today. He is also well read and up on world events so you can converse about anything. You will be happy if you choose him as your guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I have to admit that I enjoyed the tours and our conversations as much as you did. It was my pleasure to be your private guide in Cairo. I really did my best to make your visit to Cairo as enjoyable as possible. I'm very happy it was successful. I'm looking forward to seeing you in the near future.

Tarek expertly guided us through the Egyptian Museum and selected just the right details and artifacts for our family so that we got a flavor of each of the three kingdoms. I recommend spending the extra 100 EP for the mummy room. It is a steep ticket, but well worth it, for adults. To see the actual mummies of the great pharoahs all in one small room leaves a lasting and humbling impression.

We absolutely made the right choice in choosing Tarek. He was very knowledgeable especially inside the museum which is huge, he guided us without lingering too long and kept our 6&8 yr old kids very interested. We felt completely safe the whole time and thoroughly enjoyed Tarek's company. He even organized at the last minute a dinner cruise. The driver was safe and made it fun navigating the Cairo chaos!! A fantastic time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for having taken the time to provide a review. That's really nice of you. Looking forward to seeing you once again in the future.

This was the second tour we booked with Tarek on our trip to Egypt. He was extremely professional, initiating contact with us a day before our tour to make sure that every detail was covered and allowed for input into our expectations of the visits to the various sites. We leave Egypt with a tremendous amount of knowledge, awe and a good friend in Tarek. I would recommend him without any reservations what so ever.
