Gianluca GramaccioniUnited States
A five-star rating is simply not high enough to rate Tarek as a guide. Reading through some of the other reviews, you can easily see that Tarek is an excellent at what he does. He is incredibly knowledgeable and does a fantastic job explaining his vast knowledge in such a way that is digestible for those of us that have not spent out lives studying Egypt. He is genuine in his love for Egypt, genuine in his desire for you to have a fantastic trip and I would not hesitate to recommend him for your trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I was very happy to share my knowledge of ancient and modern Egypt with Mr. Gramacioni and his friends. The fact that everybody had done the Egyptian history at school and had done lot of reading before the tour made my job very easy.

Tarek gave us an excellent tour of the Coptic area in Cairo. He is very knowledgeable and provided a steady commentary about what we were seeing and it's significance. Tarek was very accommodating as our schedule changed and he still arranged for us to maximize the time we had available. Tarek is an excellent guide to Cairo.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I very happily showed Mr. John Buhr and his family around Coptic Cairo - a site I like very much to go back to. I was also very happy to customize the itinerary, so that Mr. Buhr could see as much of Cairo as possible. I was glad to know that Mr. Buhr would come back to Egypt again.
