Tour: Egyptian museum Tour for Mr. Frank, Cairo, Egypt
Date: Nov 18/19

Overall a very nice tour of the museum, Tarek was a good guide through the museum and I enjoyed the helpfulness of suggestions on pictures and things to view. The pros outweigh the cons. - Response to booking was slow - I booked 4 hrs at the museum and he wanted to do 3 (We did 3) - Tailoring the experience did not occur. Was wanting more focus at less notable exhibits (Returning with group later) - Wanted commentary on kings and their contribution to evolving the civilization (didn't happen)

We had an outstanding day with Tarek. His English is easy to understand. His knowledge of all the religions was excellent. His knowledge of the history from the Pharaohs to the present day is amazing. We saw many Mosques Churches Bazaars and even the Synagogue. He added some Coptic Churches because we wanted to see them. He is able to know his way everywhere and we were able to arrive so the lines were minimal. You will certainly enjoy your day with Tarek.

Fantastic start to our visit to Egypt. Tarik was simply the best to arrange, escort and explain the sites we wished to visit even adding more as we experienced Cairo & Dashar with him. Will gladly recommend him to friends and family! He was pleasant, patient and friendly as well. Made our first impression of his country and culture wonderful!

Tarek was extremely knowledgeable, polite, timely, answered all our questions, and was able to teach us a tremendous amount. You are very fortunate to have him as part of your tour team. I would highly recommend for any of the tours in and around Cairo.

Tarek is very personable, knowledgeable and accommodating. He has an excellent sense of humor and was attentive. In addition, he was gracious when I requested changes to the itinerary. Always concerned about my safety when crossing the streets, uneven surfaces etc. when I was shopping for a specific item, he went out of his way to accommodate me. Highly recommended.

Our day was very well spent. Our guide Terek was knowledgeable and answered all our questions. He's a good driver and we really appreciated how he went with the flow on driving, dealing with vendors and officials and working with our pace. We highly recommend him for a fun and safe time in Cairo.

Tarek is a cool guy to take you around and see sites. I don't believe he has a master's degree in archeology. His level of knowledge of history and the sites is below average for a tour guide. He does include the price of admission in his fee, except he does not cover entering the great pyramid, which is not noted in his summary. However it should be clear to you that this is not a college level of information, and you will not learn much about the history and context of these important places.

Tarek guided us through the busy museum in Cairo with real confidence and knowledge, pointing out the highlights in an engaging way. When asked questions he had demonstrated a very deep knowledge of Egyptology too. He took us also to the Pyramids and the more remote Gaier Anderson house. Everything was well organised, interesting and flexible. We highly recommend him.

Outstanding tour of Cairo's historic sites, including the famed Citadel of Saladin and the Grand Mosque of Muhammed Ali Pasha! Tarek tailored the tour to visit spots I hadn't already seen and spent time explaining the cultural and historic significance of each location. A top-rate experience all around!

Tarek is very friendly, professional and has a lot of knowledge of Egyptian history. He only had few hours in Cairo and he planned everything so efficiently. The thing I appreciated most was that he was able to deal with pushy vendors in a dignified way. I would rate him 5 stars and high recommend him.

Nice tour! I told Tarek I wanted to see modern Cairo because I had already visited ancient attractions. He guided me through Muslim market with beautiful architecture, explaining and telling history and culture, then to downtown. I could experience real Cairo: real people on a real place.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Vladimir, Thank you so much for the great feedback, Appreciated so much, I'm glad to know that you enjoyed my recommendations I hope that you really enjoyed a part of hidden Egypt and real Egypt. I hope that I will see you again. Best regards Tarek.k

Tarek was very knowledgeable and informative about all of the Cairo sites we wanted to see and he added a very special tour of the Garbage City & the Cave church. This was the best part of the tour and I recommend it to be a integral part of tourist destinations. Prepare well & thanks for a wonderful experience!
