Beyond excellent - if I could give more stars I would. Nahla's extensive knowledge of history (she is an Egyptologist) including the arts and culture and interesting facts about ordinary ancient life really makes her a special guide. She also knows about building techniques of the time (a particular interest of mine) and can cogently explain some of the interesting mathematical points, such as alignment of windows with the equinoxes. She's also a great bargainer with good driving and escort contacts.
