Adel and his driver are the epitome of Egyptian hospitality. We decided to start with Coptic Cairo where Adel explained to us the areas history..in very good English. We next headed to the Pyramids and Sphinx , where we learned Giza's history, past and present. Adel negotiated our 10min Camel Ride..yes touristy, but...whatever the queen wants, right Adel :). Adel then ordered us a local feast that we enjoyed at his B & B overlooking the Pyramids...amazing and the highlight of our day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are wonderful couple and I'm always here waiting for you...Adel

We asked for a custom tour of specific religious locations throughout Cairo and the tour guides did an excellent job. The tour was well thought out to maximize our time at the sites with minimal travel. The history and detailed information was excellent. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks lovely family and you are really such a nice family and I'm here ready to make sure of everything to make it the best. Wishing you happy and healthy life. Adel

Adel, cares deeply about his country and is quite hospitable. You will NOT find a better guide, whether you stay at his bed and breakfast (with fantastic view of pyramids) or elsewhere.

We had an amazing time! My husband and I visited several off the path shops that made our visit feel less touristy. Adel invited us to view the Pyramids and Sphinx from the deck of the inn that he owns. I will absolutely be requesting him again when I return with my sister's and our children. He's very cordial and I felt very comfortable the entire time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Happy to hear back from you and thank you for your nice words about me. I'm here always ready to make your family happy and it was my pleasure to meet and arrange your short visit to my lovely Egypt and my INN. See you soon . Adel.

The tour of Cairo with Adel was the perfect introduction to this wonderful city. Adel was so good with our daughter- a big plus point for us. Adel is really knowledgeable about Cairo, very flexible and relaxed about the tour itinerary. We have already booked another tour with him.

Adel was a friendly, interesting guide with a lot of information to share. The visit to Sakkara was excellent as were the visits to a local papyrus maker and a purveyor of essential oils. Adel tried hard to make these work well after we had expressed concern about feeling pressured to make a purchase in a local carpet store. Adel had a particular approach, based on his spirituality, which might be attractive to some,s (eg the claim that the pyramids are in fact 12,000 years old).
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you my lovely friends and I'm always willing to see you happy , You are such a nice friends and thank you for coming to visit my lovely Egypt. Love and Light for all your life.

We were fortunate to choose Adel as our guide in Cairo. He went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that we had an excellent experience. Adel is extremely knowledgeable about all the sites we visited which greatly enhanced our trip. He seems to know everyone in Cairo and looked out for us at all the tourist sites making sure we weren't taken advantage of. We found him to be a great travel companion with a terrific sense of humor - we now consider him a friend.

Having traveled around the world, Egypt had always been a childhood dream of mine and thanks to our guide Adel, he made it come true. Even before our trip, he went to the Mogamma building in Cairo and helped my wife get her travel visa. When we met Adel, we felt we already knew him and he was so courteous, sincere, and supportive and he became our new friend. He showed us the pyramids, antiquities museum, Nile cruise, Khan el-Khalili bazaar, and the city of Cairo. Let Adel welcome you to the magic land.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you my friend and you are one of a kind , I wish to see you again and always wishing you & your lovely wife happiness, Love and light in your life . My goal in this life to make people happy and see a smile on their faces. Here in tours by locals we wish all good for you and wishing you happy new year . Adel.

Initially contacted Adel back in December and clarified what I was looking for in a tour. Adel's replies were always prompt and courteous. Due to unforeseen circumstances, had to cancel one of the tour days at the last minute and Adel and the ToursByLocals staff were understanding and accommodating. Overall, Adel was very professional and highly knowledgeable of Cairo and all that it has to offer. He promised me the best tour of my life and he delivered. Thanks to Adel I had a very memorable stay in Cairo
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you dear Rick and I'm always wishing you happy nice journey of your life, I will be happy to see you in my magic Egypt. I'm here to make it the best for my friends and visitors to my lovely Egypt , come and visit and you always finding me around my pyramids & Sphinx . Thank you.
Adel is very knowledgeable about the Cairo, i just wished we maximized our time by bringing me to some other places like Cairo Museum since we still have plenty of time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jaime, I'm happy you enjoyed your time in Egypt and you are such a nice person and I was open for you to visit all what you want to visit and It was ok to visit the Cairo Museum.,but you didn't mention it and it was not in your list to visit .

Very good guide and very helpful
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lovely Family and I wish to see you again in my Lovely Egypt.
We travelled as a group of 7 with one 12 year old. Adel was prompt, informative, professional and friendly,and very funny. Our return trip was very comfortable, with an excellent driver-an absolute necessity in Cairo traffic! The accommodation was very good. Adel knew the best way to explore Cairo and provided many insights into Egyptian life. He made sure we got value for money and took us to some fabulous restaurants. We felt safe with him at all times and highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your nice words and really you were nicer than me...i wish to see in Egypt again and i'm sure i will make you more happy. Don't forget me please and remember i'm always here.... the Pharaoh of Egypt.
