We would highly recommend Melad to all who travel to Egypt. We could tell how kind and helpful he was from the moment we started emailing him questions. His graciousness continued throughout the tour and his knowledge was impeccable. Aswan is an interesting city that we suspect gets overlooked, but is worth spending several days in. We visited in March with its cool weather and only a handful of tourists. We really enjoyed this tour because it has a little bit of everything for everybody.

Melad is very knowledgeable on Egyptian history and the specifics of the various sites we visited - I now feel like a junior Egyptologist. We hired Melad for 5 days for the entire Aswan/Luxor experience and were very pleased. Our tours were professionally conducted with good vehicles and drivers and Melad helped us get the most from our experience. Highly recommended.

This was an amazing evening! Melad knew just how to plan the time to get us to the show by private boat that waited for us after the performance. He fully explained what we should expect during the performance, and where to meet so that we could leave before the other attendees. For others thinking about this sound and light show, I highly recommend it! It tells an amazing story in a beautiful and remote location that adds to the dramatic feel.

All of our toursbylocals guides have been excellent; Melad is by far at the top of the list! His extensive experience as a guide is evident; his resources and knowledge made every outing seem so seamless and well executed. He was our guide on our Nile river cruise, and at each stop he had transportation to take us to the sites. His knowledge of Egypt's history and culture made it come alive to us! He is so personable that we felt we had made a friend at the end of our tour! I highly recommend him!

Melad was waiting for me at the airport in Aswan exactly as planned and then we walked over to the very nice, clean and big van that was all mine for the whole day. Melad and I arranged to visit Philae (Isis Temple) and Idfu, and that is exactly what happend. He is very knowledgable about Egyptian mythology and gives you plenty of free time in the temples to explore. Be sure to let him know exactly what you want and such will occur. Great place and Melad was very helpful.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Cody, It is my pleasure to know that you enjoyed your tour with me. You were so helpful too, which made it so easy to me to give you as much as i can of explanation. I wish to see you again in Egypt to show you more.

Melad is a fantastic guide and I am glad we hired him for our trip to Aswan and Kom Ombo and on to Luxor. He has a very pleasing and friendly personality. Out four year daughter got friendly with him right away! He is of course extremely knowledgeable about Egyptian history and Egyptian mythology and we are glad we hired him for our trip. I would very strongly recommend him to anyone thinking about visiting Egypt.
