I had Doaa as my tour guide to the pyramids in Egypt. She was incredible! So sweet and helpful and very knowledgeable. I learned so much from her and enjoyed talking to her as a friend. Even when we parted ways she made herself available for any help I needed. I give a 5 star rating to toursbylocals for having great people work for them and managing time very well
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jessica for your time in writing this review .Thanks for your nice words .waiting you again to discover different places in Egypt.

My wife and her sister were happy because Doaa is a good photographer. They have hundreds of photos that Doaa shot from the best view points all around Cairo, Alexandria, and El Faiyum. A third reason for choosing Doaa which is not in her resume is her sense of humor. It takes a high degree of intelligence to infuse humor at the appropriate opportunities. So we learned a lot and had fun learning and sharing experiences. Good communicator, punctual, humorous, highly intelligent and passionate for Egypt.

The thing that made me choose Doaa was the fact that she has worked in the Egyptian museum as a curator. That is a huge place and you really want to choose an expert guide if you are going to have a chance to see most of the impressive archaeological discoveries in a short amount of time. Doaa took us to visit Islamic mosques, Christian churches and Jewish synagogues. The respect that she exhibited in all places is the characteristic that separates having a good guide from having a "Excellent" guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks Mr Roland no word can express how I fell now really I appreciate I never forget you ' your lovely wife and her sister as you enjoyed with me I enjoyed more with you and always talking about you May Allah bless you and hope one day we will meet each other. Regards

We recently tour Egypt. Our guide for 2 days was Doaa. Her knowledge of the sites and pleasant personality made for two interesting and enjoyable days. It was such a pleasure to have her lead us around. She lined up the driver and vehicle as well, which made things very simple for us. Thank you Doaa.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mr Daryl for your comment . Me too I enjoyed and spent 2 great days with you and your lovely wife send my greetings to her and wishing to come again .

My partner, our son, and I had a very short time to tour the pyramids. We left CAI customs at 2:30pm and the pyramids closed at 4:30. Doaa's friendly, talented, and fast driver sped us to Giza for a whirlwind tour. In that time, Doaa shared an immense amount of knowledge about Egyptian history and culture. She rushed us passed lines to get us inside the Great Pyramid. Afterward, we drove by other sites in Cairo and toured the Khan el-Khalili. Doaa is SO knowledgeable and SO nice. We highly recommend!

I had a private tour with Doaa for Felucca ride along the Nile and shopping in Khan el-Khalili bazaar. She was a great guide! Felt like I was reuniting with a long lost friend :) I had reservations traveling alone, but she made me feel welcome in Cairo and assured me not to worry! I am so glad for the opportunity to visit Cairo and to have her as my guide! This trip was a short trip, but I will sure be back to visit :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Kara so much for your sweet words you welcome any time .

Doaa is an exceptional tour guide. She was on time and showed my wife and I so many places in Old Coptic Cairo. She has excellent communication skills in English. We never felt in a hurry to leave one place to the other. Doaa is very knowledgeable of the details of history. She was such a pleasure to work wit and we do recommend her highly to others.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Mr Essam for your rview really i spent a nice time with a lovely couple .wish to meet you again.

Highly recommend the day tour of Cairo especially on Fridays. Friday despite being a holiday in Cairo everything is open and there is no traffic. So traveling between Coptic Cairo and Citadel Of Salah Al-Din, Amer Ibn El Ase mosque & National Museum can be easily and comfortably achieved. Cairo is know for its traffic jams so while distances are short traffic delays make sightseeing difficult, make sure you start early in the morning. Ban on the photography inside the Egyptian Museum has been lifted!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I wish to come back again and also i'll be your guide.

Doaa gave a fantastic & friendly tour. The tour was very informative, Doaa had a very in depth knowledge of the pyramids and their history, and all of our group very much enjoyed it. Would definitely book with her again.

Wow what an experience! Doaa you definatly made our trip. We can't thank you enough for being so welcoming and accomidating. Your knowledge was second to none and in helping us with our transfers and train tickets you definatly went above and beyond. We would have no hesitation and will recommend you to anyone visiting Cairo. We would have been lost without you. Thank you once again ( Sarah has started calling you her Egyptian Mum!!). Keep in touch Sarah and Clinton.

Doaa is extremely pleasant, helpful, knowledgable, and flexible to ensure the tour experience is wonderful. She ensured that we got the most from our only day in Cairo and saw the major sites and understood their meaning and importance. I highly recommend her services for the insight and value she adds to the experience.
Very informative, excellent english, very helpful and attentive to our needs as we were travelling with a baby. Willing to go the extra mile to help out of the norm issues. Excellent knowledge of tours. Very good and highly recommend for other english travellers as well. 3rd trip to Egypt and by far best guide to date. Willing to adjust tours as we needed based on baby issues and the like. Excellent! Thanks Leigh
