Excellent trip to a fascinating and very interesting part of Cairo. Ahmed was very good as was the driver in a very comfortable car. Ahmed did a great job at incorporating our additional requests in terms of add on sites and we reall enjoyed our tour. Shukran! Highly recommended.

We loved our tour with Ahmed! Just to set the picture, we have been traveling for a week+, a family with two teens, in August with temps in triple digits. Yet everyone had fun, enjoyed, learned a lot and would do it again! Ahmed's style is laid back, no nonsense, but fun. His goal is to make sure everyone enjoys, but also gets a sense of the absolutely extraordinary sights and history they are experiencing. It is also important that we learn what has been lost from decades of looting. Bravo!

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 !!

Date: May 15/18

Wir haben eine Tour von Marsa Alam nach Luxor mit Ahmed gebucht. Der Transfer fand in einem kleinen klimatisierten Reisebus statt und dauerte pro Tour ca. 6 Stunden. Die Touren vor Ort haben uns und vor allem unseren Kindern sehr gefallen. Unser Guide Ahmed spricht ein gutes Deutsch und wir haben alles verstanden. Die historische Tiefe der Berichte kann jeder für sich festlegen und Ahmed geht darauf ein. In Summe ein toller Ausflug und eine gut investierte Zeit. Danke an Ahmed und Busfahrer Achmed

Date: May 5/18

My husband and I had a three day layover in Cairo and wanted to see the city and its highlights. Ahmed was well organized, friendly and accommodating. He is knowledgable and provided us with not to be missed tours of the pyramids, Cairo Museum and Coptic Cairo as well as fascinating glimpses of life in Cairo today. We felt well cared for and safe with Ahmed. His insights into what is happening in the middle east today were especially appreciated. I will contact him again should we return to visit Luxor

Ahmed was an excellent guide. He took me to what I wanted to see and knew so much about the ancient history as he is an Egyptologist. He was patient with me, and very helpful. I felt I did absorb a lot of information also about present day Egypt. He answered my questions and what he told me made sense.

Date: Apr 10/17

From the very first meeting when Ahmed arrived at the hotel early for our tour, he was professional, punctual and a wealth of knowledge. He worked closely with the driver, was able to amend our tour if we needed to finish the day early or extend for one more site. He was accommodating and flexible. At the end of our trip we felt that we had spent our time with a very good friend and not just a guide. I would recommend Ahmed for touring whether it was a small group like my wife and I or a larger tour.

Tour: #9620, 2 Full Day trips in luxor, Dendera and Abydos, Luxor, Egypt    view tour
Date: Jan 31/17

I booked Ahmed through ToursByLocals website for two days at Luxor. One day on the West Bank looking at the Valley of the Kings, The Nobles and Workers Tombs. On the second day we travelled to Abydos and Mederas, which are two great temples out of Luxor. Ahmed was very knowledgeable, he takes the time to explain scenes and is patient to repeat important information to ensure you understand. Ahmed has a great passion for Egyptian history and I would recommend him if you're looking for a great guide.

We had the pleasure to meet Ahmed and to have him show us around his wonderful city of Luxor. Ahmed was knowledgeable, punctual and courteous. His recommendations made sure we not only hit the highlights, but also some of the wonderful off the normal tour sites. He advised us on dealing with vendors and must try local dishes. He was able to gauge when the kids were hitting their saturation point and made sure to not overload us.I highly recommend Ahmed.

Our tour of the West Bank sites was amazing and our guide highly informed and professional. He arrived at the expected time and the tour with food took exactely the 8 hours arranged. I would certainly recommend your site to others. I was travelling as a mother with two 15 year old lads and they really enjoyed the individual tour so much better than a group arrangement.

The best way to travel in Egypt. Ahmed is very knowledgable and kind. His education and description of local history and culture is unrivalled throughout the tour guide system. Ahmed is very friendly and helpful for all of your needs and understands people on a global scale. He has travelled to over 20 countries, adding to the depth of his presentation. If I ever return to Egypt; he'll be the first person I contact, without question!

Again Ahmed has come through for me. His mastery of guiding you through sites and planning gives you the tour you'd expect from the highest grade of experience/education possible in all of the field of history while giving you the chance to ask questions, offer feedback, and understand the philosophies of the ancient artwork and cultures famous worldwide for their part in the innovation of mankinds practices and the evolution of how many things are today I wish all the best to you in the future Thank you!
