Doaa was very knowledgeable and adapted the tour to my interests and capabilities. We had wonderful discussions regarding day to day life, religion and politics of our respective countries. She acted as a translator between my driver and myself so I got another insight to life from him Can't recommend highly enough.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs Lee Thanks so much for taking a time to write this great review, really it was my pleasure to talk with you in different topics, you are so different traveler, you want to explore the real Egyptian life . Thanks again and waiting you next June. Best regards

Date: Feb 29/20

Doaa was happy to tailor this tour to my preferences e.g. visiting the Coptic Museum & not the garbage area. She was very informative regarding the history of Cairo (the amount of detail could even be overwhelming sometimes! I was glad I'd done a little prior research). She is intelligent, and her English comprehension is excellent, allowing good communication (unlike some guides who can't stray far from their "script"). Highly recommended if you have interest in history & culture.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nina Thanks so much for taking a time to write your great review. I am glad to know that you enjoyed with me . I am waiting to explore another part of Egypt .

Our day with Doaa was fantastic. She is a great communicator, we exchanged numerous email messages the day before our tour, and she was so flexible with our schedule, well as shifting our start time to allow for proper viewing of some sights. She has so much knowledge and experience, we learned a great deal about Islamic and Coptic Cairo history. Additionally, she took us to a wonderful restaurant for lunch. Lastly, the driver was fantastic, be prepared for some adventurous roads and traffic!

We very much enjoyed our time touring with Doaa. In a country where tour guiding is a popular profession, she is exceptionally qualified. She and the driver she provided took excellent care of us while navigating Cairo's congested streets and heat, and getting us through security and the gamut of souvenir sellers that surround Egypt's iconic and much visited sights. Her background commentary was fascinating and gave us a broad overview of five millennia of Egypt's turbulent history.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much my dear Louise, It is my pleasure to know that you enjoyed with me during your stay in Egypt . You are so informative and so knowledgeable persons. Wait you again to discover another part of Egypt. Send my greetings to your lovely daughter.

Doaa was wonderful. She took care of our agency's clients and was consistently in touch with me before their arrival into Cairo and throughout their stay. She was so thorough and was completely flexible in customizing their tour and time. We had some special requests and she was very accommodating. Most of all, it was apparent she deeply cares about her work and the experience she wants to create for her clients. I felt like I was working with a good friend and neighbor. The clients were very happy.
