What a great tour! Nahla is a wonderful guide. She was able to provide us with great stories and context for everything that we saw. On the day we travelled, it was so hot and it did not deter her one bit. In fact, she made some special plans (that I don't want to spoil for anyone) that created some of the best memories of our trip to Cairo and Luxor. Book her without hesitation!
