Tour: #193509, Egypt 11-Day Holiday Tour, Cairo, Egypt    
Date: Jun 8/18

I chose Tarek to be my tour guide for my 11- day vacation throughout Egypt, and I could not have made a better decision than this. From the point of picking me up from the airport to bringing me back on the last day he made me feel extremely welcome and happy to be in Egypt. He displayed a level of professionalism and overall demeanor that made me feel very comfortable, and this cannot be overstated. If you are ever in Egypt, I highly recommend Tarek as your guide. I would rate him 6 stars if I could.

Tour: #193509, Egypt 14-Day Holiday Tour, Cairo, Egypt    
Date: May 2/18

A 5 star experience. The reason was Tarek. He knows Egypt, he's an Egyptologist, he has 30 years of guide experience, he speaks English better than I do, he's flexible, and he's a nice person. With his help we arranged a tour schedule that included all the sights on our bucket list plus some recommended. The schedule was spot on. He made all the reservations, provided all the transportation, was available from airport pick-up to drop off 2 weeks later. We strongly recommend Tarek to friends and readers.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The two-week tour of Mr. Philip Gardner and his wife was absolutely amazing. Mr. Philip Gardner and his wife taught so much about the United States and gave me a deep insight into the lives of the American people. What goes around, comes around. Two days after the tour had started, it felt like we had known each other for years. It was so easy for the three of us to communicate talk about everything. I'm quite sure that we will meet again in the future.

tarek did a great job showing my wife and I around Cairo. The boat cruise to Luxor was great,both interesting and relaxing. The food and accommodations on the cruise were beyond expectation. Tarek asked and accomplished whatever we asked of him. He could not have been more hospitable.

Visiting historical and archaeological sites require for key support in terms of information and insightful deliberations. All these things we got them from Mr Tarek throughout our visit. Our treasures of Egypt were truly wonderful and meaningful. Not to forget, all our kids like Mr Tarek for his fatherly treatment and hospitality.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I took much pleasure in showing Mrs. Harun and her family around Egypt. We had a lot of fun. I'm happy Mrs. Harun and her family went back home with nice memories of their visit to Egypt.

You have found your guide for Egypt. Tarek is not just a wonderful, knowledgeable guide, he is a wonderful human being. As a guide, he presents his vast information on not just Egyptian History, but how it relates world wide, in a logical, interesting manner. He is open to taking you where you would like to go! We loved our trips to Whale Valley, and to Alexandria so much. The Egyptian Museum , Giza -- all wonderful. We told Tarek what we would like to see and do, and he arranged everything!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I thoroughly enjoyed my tours with Mr. and Mrs. Ebert who made the tours good fun. We had wonderful conversations. As I exposed the Eberts to the Egyptian culture and history, they also gave me a deep insight into the lives of the American people - which I found very interesting. I will be extremely happy to meet them once again in the future.

We spent 9 days with Tarek, and we're so glad we used him.He is an amazing guide,and turned this vacation into a trip of a lifetime.We really felt as if we got to know more about Egypt, and learned more about the culture from interacting with the people with Tarek then we ever could have by ourselves. Dont hesitate to book a trip with Tarek,he's the best!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The nine days I spent with the Lassens were really good fun. We all enjoyed ourselves and had a laugh all the time. We also had very interesting conversations throughout the entire holiday. Towards the end of the trip I felt I have a new family living in the United States. I'm sure that the first I will do when I go to the US is I will go and see my new family, the Lassens.

We had the best vacation of our lives with Tarek, he was an amazing guide and all of my family loved him.From visiting all of the important historical sights to taking in the local culture, Tarek made everything fun, with our safety also being one of his priorities. Any requests we had as the trip progressed were taken care of, right down to my youngest sons request for falafel a few hours before our flight!! Don't hesitate to book your vacation with Tarek, hes the best!

We were concerned that the trip might be too exhausting to our 18-months little one. Tarek was very patient and listened to our request. He made the trip very flexible and still enjoyable and educational. His driver was excellent and always kept the car clean. His partner in Luxor, Mohamed, is also very thoughtful and knowledgeable. Almost forget to mention the delicious pigeon!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I was so delighted to see you and your lovely family here in Cairo. I fell in love with your beautiful daughter as soon as I saw her (I'm a big lover of children). This cute little child brought a lot of joy and happiness into the atmosphere and made the tours interesting. We all had a laugh. I also enjoyed the delicious pigeons. This was a gorgeous meal. Mohamed - my partner in Upper Egypt - also enjoyed your company. Mohamed and myself are sending you our best regards.

Tarek was the best guide one could ever have. He gets an A+ in all categories including planning, punctuality, courtesy, English and knowledge. This was my third trip to Egypt. I would never again travel in Eqypt without Tarek. I recommend him to everyone. You are lucky to have this man in your organization. John Cogswell

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had a terrific time taking the tour with Mr. Cogswell who is well versed in the Egyptian history as well as the world ancient history. This made my job easy and enjoyable. I have to say that I learnt a lot from Mr. Cogswell. I'm quite sure that we will get together once again in the future here in Egypt and I'm looking forward to it.
