Tarek was a great tour guide and took very good care of us. He speaks excellent English. Pick-up and transportation were punctual. We had good email exchange before Tarek customized the tour,giving us exactly what we had intended. We left early and had Bent Pyramid and Red Pyramid completely to ourselves. Best about Memphis was coffee in street café. Very authentic. Great views from the Step Pyramid in Saqqara! Road stops whenever requested by us. Later we all had pigeon for lunch arranged by Tarek(extra)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I agree with you. It felt really great to have the entire site to ourselves doing the Red and Bent Pyramids. It made a big difference. I never hesitate to have local food and drinks on the tours, and mix with the locals. It's certainly part of the fun. Being a big lover of coffee, I loved the Turkish coffee we had in Memphis.
