Tarek was an excellent host. I spent the day with him - just the two of us - and felt at the end of it that I really had a flavour of Cairo. He removed all the stress from visiting a very chaotic city, and even when getting into tourists sites was challenging, he rose to the challenge, and arranged alternatives within a minute or two. He is resourceful, and good company: he delivers an excellent product. He is knowledgeable and his English fluent, with a British accent!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Conducting a good tour in Cairo is always a challenge!!! However, it's a blessing in disguise; it's good fun for the guests and it makes the guides cleverer. As Mr. Kettles kindly puts it, when a problem arises, the guides have to meet the challenge, think quick and find a good alternative straight away. As a matter of fact this makes the Cairo tours very interesting. That's why neither the tour guides nor the travelers get tired of going around Cairo.
