Gave excellent explanations and descriptions - knows his subjects and well-prepared and tight on schedules - as good as a university lecturer. Anything beyond specifics in tours are triple to quadrupled priced; cheaper to use hotel's service, ie. Sight & Sound show, felucca ride, transportations, etc. Was hoping to have better access to transportations and local eateries (w/o exhorbitant prices).
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi and happy new year.Thank you for your kind review.I am pleased that you enjoyed my professionalism, Egypt and its history are my passion.There seems to be some confusion regarding the "extras" , i did not arrange any of these for you, the prices i charge are the ones that are on my website. We had an enjoyable lunch on the West bank at a restaurant of my choice, this is because I trust the food is of a good standard. I can assure you that the hotels charge a far higher fee than local Guides/taxis etc.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: This is uncharacteristic of the excellent feedback we've come to expect of Melad's customers. We advise all travelers to request any changes to an itinerary in advance. Some changes can be made easily, but others may carry costs or conflict with a tour itinerary. Vehicles used for a tour are typically not available for use beyond the tour itself.
