Moustafa is an excellent guide. His knowledge of Egypt is extensive and if you are interested in Egyptian antiquities, sites and artefacts, you could not find a better versed guide. Moustafa tailored an itinerary to cater to our specific requests/interests and we were able to access sites well out of range of people doing larger group tours. Our trip was so personal and all details were taken care of ensuring a smooth and fascinating three day tour. The trip of a lifetime. Thanks Moustafa!

Moustafa did and EXCELLENT of of showing our group of six Americans the main sights of Alexandria. He is knowledgeable, personable, and very capable. His English is excellent and he has a wealth of knowledge about his country, both present day and historically. He is a PhD candidate and loves to share his knowledge. He was engaging and answered our questions with insight and kindness. He looked out for us and helped us with details such as getting money, water, scuba sessions and meals.

Moustafa is a highly knowledgeable, extremely good guide for those interested in going beyond superficial explanations and really want to learn. He is a PhD student in archaeology, so if this is your interest - he's your guy ! No nonsense at all about visiting favored shops, etc. He respected that I had no interest in shopping

Moustafa was an excellent guide for our 2 days spent in Cairo. We did an Ancient Cairo tour and we got a proper history lesson, plus answered all of our questions regarding Egypt and Cairo, even when we had more delicate questions we would get a straight forward and honest answer. He is very passionate about Egyptology and knows all there is to be known about it.

Our two day tour of Alexandria with Moustafa was great. He provided us with a wealth of information and was fun to be with. Also we especially appreciate that he made some last minutes adjustments to our visit which we requested, even though we found out later that difficult in Egypt. Thank you Moustafa!

Moustafa was top notch. Impeccable english, very knowledgeable on all of sites and things we saw with detailed explanations of history & different theories where the history is vague or unknown. Moustafa's great sense of humor with his many "rules" for visiting Cairo kept of laughing even in midst of chaotic Cairo traffic. Moustafa made sure that I and my daughter were accommodated for in every way, well organized and always prompt. Without hesitation, highly recommend Moustafa.

Moustafa O. did a wonderful job in sharing his knowledge of all the sites we visited on our 1 day tour. He was very professional and passionate in his presentations. He was open in sharing insight into the Egyptian culture including what to expect and how to interact with the local vendors. My kids ( ages 18 & 20) loved the tours. Be sure to take advantage of stopping by the Papyrus Institute where they give a presentation on how it is made. A camel ride is also a must. Thanks for taking great pics too!

Moustafa took our group of six people on a wonderful two-day tour of the Pyramids (Giza, Bent, Saqqara) and Coptic Cairo, the Citadel, and the Museum. He was extremely knowledgable about each site and provided some fascinating insights into what we were seeing. As an archaeologist with hands-on experience, he knew the best places to go, things to see, and stories to tell. I'd recommend Moustafa to anyone visiting Cairo. He promised the Bent Pyramid would be fun but exhausting. He was right! Don't miss it.

We only had 48 hours to see the Giza/Cairo highlights. Moustafa did a wonderful job of scheduling our events, ensuring we maximized our time in Cairo. Moustafa is very knowledgeable, articulate and easy to understand. He made our trip to Cairo very memorable. I highly recommend him.

Loved our tour, and more importantly our tour guide. No only was he knowledgeable, but friendly and extremely accommodating. We saw everything we set out too, and more. "No" was not part of his vocabulary. He made our experience magical; a memory to last us a lifetime.

Moustafa knew his stuff! We couldn't have been more pleased. From day one communication was clear, concise and helpful. In our two days together, we covered as much territory, verbal and visual, as we could adsorb. Recommend with no reservations.

This tour was fantastic and the absolute best way to see Cairo. We booked with Moustafa after reading all the reviews online and we were not disappointed. He has a deep knowledge of Egypt as well as being very personable and flexible. We only had a short stay and Moustafa worked with us to put together a customized 2-day itinerary. We saw so much that we would never have been able to navigate without his help. Also, the traffic in Cairo is horrible. A private tour is a must. Thx Moustafa!

He is among the very best. He is educated, knowledgeable, careful and a pleasure to be with. He planned a wonderful week in the lower Nile ,at our request, which included a day trip to Alexandria. He was very careful to make sure we had no problem with security and that we saw all the special sites we requested. He was able to obtain entry into the Grand Museum and also to the newly excavated tomb at Saqqara among other places.You are very lucky if he is available for your trip.

Moustafa was 1st class in service. Met us the day before our scheduled tour to insure we were not in need of anything. Started promptly the next morning @ 8 AM, covered everything we wished to see, took us to the fish market for a wonderful meal, somehow we were inside when we needed to be (rain) and outside when the rain subsided. Perfect day.

Our Alexandria guide, Moustafa O., was punctual, friendly, very helpful and knowledgeable with perfect English. He arranged an extra evening visit to be shown around the school my wife left in 1955. On day 2 he took us to the Catacombs, Roman amphitheatre, the amazing Library and much more, then returned us to our ship. Our safety had been important to Moustafa during a tense time in Alexandria just days before resurgence of the revolution and the presidential coup d'etat. We highly recommend Moustafa!

Because we had limited time, we requested the 8 hour tour to be done in about five hours. We were not disappointed and Moustafa made sure we did not miss out on any element of the tour. He is very knowledgable.

Moustafa was by far the best guide we've ever had in Egypt (6 guides so far.) He was professional, passionate about his country, and educated on its history. We did 2 days in Alexandria seeing the ancient sites, and 1 day near Lake Mariout seeing the sites there. We followed our itinerary and showed us everything on our list, plus some extra things at the last minute. He kept us safe, informed and interested every day. Even the other guides told us we have the best guide in Egypt!

Moustafa set the bar high with his tours. These were our first tours of the cruise and they were the most memorable. He was very attentive to our needs and provided an excellent experience. He went out of his way to ensure our needs and requests were met. We highly recommend Moustafa to anyone visiting Egypt.

We had a wonderful tour of Cairo and Alexandria with Moustafa. I would best describe him as Egyptologist Guide Extraordinaire. The personalized tour provided a great deal of information, making it a richly rewarding experience. He responded in very clear English to any questions regarding Archaeology, History and Culture. Every site listed was a favorite on this booking to include a lovely lunch at Hotel Cecil. The van was clean, comfortable and the driver efficiently adept at navigating.

Our day with Moustafa was the highlight of a great trip! Moustafa took great care of us-three women traveling alone in Alexandria. He gave us everything we asked for which included learning significant history about historical sites and artifacts, political and personal information about life in Alexandria, and good food and shopping. He is The Best guide we had on our trip. He and his driver were warm, thoughtful, experienced and had a keen sense of what was appropriate for us. Thank you, Moustafa!

Moustafa was a wonderful tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and very nice. There were four of us in our group, including my 83 year old mother in law in a wheelchair. Moustafa had a great driver and was very helpful and accommodating for my mother in law. It was actually the best tour I have ever taken and was the highlight of my trip. We were in Egypt two days on a cruise. Moustafa is a very responsible person and made sure we were back at our ship both nights when we needed to be. Thank you!

Our van was comfortable. Moustafa was knowledgeable, friendly, helpful. His English was good enough for us to understand his lectures, and for him to understand and answer our questions. The restaurant for lunch offered one of the top three meals we had during our whole 10 days in Egypt. He was flexible with our tour schedule and patient with our interest in the culture and details of each location. We would definitely recommend this specific tour, and be willing to try another tour from ToursByLocals.

Moustafa was a very informative guide. It was great to have our very own Egyptologist to tour us around. Especially in the Cairo Museum. His English was very good and easy to understand. He even laughed politely at our bad jokes! His wingman, Sameh(?) the driver, was an excellent driver and we felt very safe and comfortable within the crazy Egypt traffic. I thoroughly recommend Moustafa and Sameh to anyone wanting to maximise their journey to Cairo. Thanks again!
