Ahmed's cool and friendly demeanor made our visits to the sites a pleasure. Right from the day before when I was contacting him to change our program slightly to the day we were heading back to Cairo, Ahmed checked on us to make sure we were having a great experience. He was knowledgeable, funny and caring but also guaranteed we did not miss any detail. He is a great communicator. We learnt a lot about the local culture as we talked on our way to different antiquities.I wish I could give him Six Stars !!
