We had the most insightful tour on Islamic and Coptic Egypt with Doaa, our local tour guide. Doaa is very knowledgeable and experienced guide. She took the time to let us understand the essential background especially on Islam. She was very patient with us, especially when we have to take some time for pictures. Most importantly, Doaa is very approachable, funny and very friendly. We really like her, and would highly recommend her!

Doaa was very knowledgeable and her driver easily got us through the crazy Cairo traffic that a tour bus couldn't do. She was very pleasant and it was like visiting family and being shown their town. Smiles all around!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Mr John for your nice words . I am so happy because it was first time to book tour through ToursByLocals and I was your guide , it is my pleasure to show you Cairo .

Doaa is a fantastic guide. Very professional and flexible, She is also incredibly knowledgeable, which was a real treat especially for my father who had millions of questions about everything. We really enjoyed the time we spent learning about the great works of Giza and Egyptian history and culture with Doaa. And she takes the best photos! You will not be disappointed. We wish we would've had time to explore more of Cairo with Doaa!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Julianne for your great review really I enjoyed so much with you and your family , May God bless you father. I hope that you enjoyed in Luxor. Please send my greetings to your husband and your father. Waiting you again.
Paulomi BhattUnited Arab Emirates
Doaa is one of the most knowledgeable guides that I have met, She planned a wonderful itinerary for us and was a through professional all the way . She was wonderful in her patience and answered all our questions prior to the tour and during the tour she tirelessly showed us around Cairo and Alexandria. Her knowledge of the places we visited is in-depth and being an Egyptologist , the stories behind the places and attractions were amazing. In short I would recommend Doaa to anyone visiting Egypt
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Paulomi for taking your time to write a great review of me. I am so happy to let you enjoyed in your trip.. Waiting you again as you promised me..
Joshua KesslerUnited States
Doaa was absolutely phenomenal! Our initial link-up was convenient and stress-free which was important as we were only in Cairo for 12.5 hours. She ensured that we were well fed before, during, and after the day's adventure. Her knowledge of ancient Egypt and Cairo is second-to-none and her former experience working in the Cairo museum really came out as the day progressed. It was so incredible to experience the city with someone so knowledgeable and who cares about her history so deeply. Doaa is the best
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Joshua for writing this comment about my tour , really I appreciate and me too I spent a great time with you and your friends and so happy that I could explain and gave information of my country to you.. Welcome to Egypt any time and wish to be your guide again ..
Moreno FrancoSouth Africa
Doaa is a most accommodating and wonderful lady. I have a NEW friend. My extra requested tour was handled with professional grace. My trip was out of the ordinary. She fulfilled it with charm. I was happy to surprise her with my own knowledge... she complemented me by saying I "should become a tour guide". I will be visiting Cairo again. My first trip was to visit the Desert. My friend, Doaa, has suggested my hotel, beside to the Nile, for my Cairo City experience. Shukran Jazilan Doaa. Wa'Alaikum Salaam
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much my new friend .Welcome to Egypt any time… waiting you as soon as you can…
Scott BussUnited States
Doaa was wonderful! Knowledgeable about antiquities as well as patiently explaining the complexities of modern Egyptian life. Flexible and reliable, we thoroughly enjoyed our time with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much mr Scott for your good comment I am so glad that you enjoyed with me ..
Mohammad BadrbeigiUnited Kingdom
One of the finest Ladies I have come to know. Very knowledgeable, courteous and a real Lady. Everything done professionally and more. Airport transfer very smooth despite late night/early mornings flights. We came to find a guide for 3 days, I think we found a friend for life. Thank you for making our visit an unforgettable memory. Mrs Doaa is recommended strongly. Such a fine Lady. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Dr Mohammed really I haven't any word to write after your words ,really I enjoyed so much with you and your family. And I am lucky to have new friend like you. I really appreciate for your nice words.
Carmen Jessica HalterUnited States
I had Doaa as my tour guide to the pyramids in Egypt. She was incredible! So sweet and helpful and very knowledgeable. I learned so much from her and enjoyed talking to her as a friend. Even when we parted ways she made herself available for any help I needed. I give a 5 star rating to toursbylocals for having great people work for them and managing time very well
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jessica for your time in writing this review .Thanks for your nice words .waiting you again to discover different places in Egypt.
Ronald F.United States
My wife and her sister were happy because Doaa is a good photographer. They have hundreds of photos that Doaa shot from the best view points all around Cairo, Alexandria, and El Faiyum. A third reason for choosing Doaa which is not in her resume is her sense of humor. It takes a high degree of intelligence to infuse humor at the appropriate opportunities. So we learned a lot and had fun learning and sharing experiences. Good communicator, punctual, humorous, highly intelligent and passionate for Egypt.
Ronald F.United States
The thing that made me choose Doaa was the fact that she has worked in the Egyptian museum as a curator. That is a huge place and you really want to choose an expert guide if you are going to have a chance to see most of the impressive archaeological discoveries in a short amount of time. Doaa took us to visit Islamic mosques, Christian churches and Jewish synagogues. The respect that she exhibited in all places is the characteristic that separates having a good guide from having a "Excellent" guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks Mr Roland no word can express how I fell now really I appreciate I never forget you ' your lovely wife and her sister as you enjoyed with me I enjoyed more with you and always talking about you May Allah bless you and hope one day we will meet each other. Regards
Daryl KoopsUnited States
We recently tour Egypt. Our guide for 2 days was Doaa. Her knowledge of the sites and pleasant personality made for two interesting and enjoyable days. It was such a pleasure to have her lead us around. She lined up the driver and vehicle as well, which made things very simple for us. Thank you Doaa.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mr Daryl for your comment . Me too I enjoyed and spent 2 great days with you and your lovely wife send my greetings to her and wishing to come again .
James PearsonUnited States
My partner, our son, and I had a very short time to tour the pyramids. We left CAI customs at 2:30pm and the pyramids closed at 4:30. Doaa's friendly, talented, and fast driver sped us to Giza for a whirlwind tour. In that time, Doaa shared an immense amount of knowledge about Egyptian history and culture. She rushed us passed lines to get us inside the Great Pyramid. Afterward, we drove by other sites in Cairo and toured the Khan el-Khalili. Doaa is SO knowledgeable and SO nice. We highly recommend!
Kevin MoodyUnited States
Dias and Mohamed are a great team. My wife and I highly recommend them. Dias was patient and full of great information told in an engaging style.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Mr Kevin for your comment, I really enjoyed showing you Wish to come back again.send my greetings to your wife Doaa
Kara ClarkeUnited States
I had a private tour with Doaa for Felucca ride along the Nile and shopping in Khan el-Khalili bazaar. She was a great guide! Felt like I was reuniting with a long lost friend :) I had reservations traveling alone, but she made me feel welcome in Cairo and assured me not to worry! I am so glad for the opportunity to visit Cairo and to have her as my guide! This trip was a short trip, but I will sure be back to visit :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Kara so much for your sweet words you welcome any time .
Esam ElfakahanyUnited States
Doaa is an exceptional tour guide. She was on time and showed my wife and I so many places in Old Coptic Cairo. She has excellent communication skills in English. We never felt in a hurry to leave one place to the other. Doaa is very knowledgeable of the details of history. She was such a pleasure to work wit and we do recommend her highly to others.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Mr Essam for your rview really i spent a nice time with a lovely couple .wish to meet you again.
Jacek B StypulkowskiUnited States
Highly recommend the day tour of Cairo especially on Fridays. Friday despite being a holiday in Cairo everything is open and there is no traffic. So traveling between Coptic Cairo and Citadel Of Salah Al-Din, Amer Ibn El Ase mosque & National Museum can be easily and comfortably achieved. Cairo is know for its traffic jams so while distances are short traffic delays make sightseeing difficult, make sure you start early in the morning. Ban on the photography inside the Egyptian Museum has been lifted!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I wish to come back again and also i'll be your guide.
Matthew ToogoodUnited Kingdom
Doaa gave a fantastic & friendly tour. The tour was very informative, Doaa had a very in depth knowledge of the pyramids and their history, and all of our group very much enjoyed it. Would definitely book with her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks a lot Matthew for your nice words i enjoyed with you and your friends
Wow what an experience! Doaa you definatly made our trip. We can't thank you enough for being so welcoming and accomidating. Your knowledge was second to none and in helping us with our transfers and train tickets you definatly went above and beyond. We would have no hesitation and will recommend you to anyone visiting Cairo. We would have been lost without you. Thank you once again ( Sarah has started calling you her Egyptian Mum!!). Keep in touch Sarah and Clinton.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Clinton so much for your nice words i hope to meet you again and send my greetings to Sara
Robert DillardUnited States
Doaa is extremely pleasant, helpful, knowledgable, and flexible to ensure the tour experience is wonderful. She ensured that we got the most from our only day in Cairo and saw the major sites and understood their meaning and importance. I highly recommend her services for the insight and value she adds to the experience.
Very informative, excellent english, very helpful and attentive to our needs as we were travelling with a baby. Willing to go the extra mile to help out of the norm issues. Excellent knowledge of tours. Very good and highly recommend for other english travellers as well. 3rd trip to Egypt and by far best guide to date.
