My wife and I did two tours with Sherif and they were both amazing. He is a funny, experienced and prepared guide. He was able to answer to our (many) questions and to make the long tour fly by. I would highly recommend him as a guide. Sherif is also an amazing photographer!

The market is the most crowded, noisy and annoying place in the world. But Sherif made this tour an enjoyable experience. He presented the historical facts about the buildings and took us to some quiet and beautiful parts of the market (he also offered to make us some nice pictures). We also had some time for buying some cheap suvenirs (he took us to a place where the suvenirs were way cheaper than in other stores). We always felt safe next to him and the tour was nice. But we don't recommend going to this market without a a good guide.

A good way to explore the Bazaar with its rich history. However, do keep ample time for shopping after the tour.

Sherif is the best! After a perfect tour at the Giza Pyramids, me and my boyfriend decided to visit with him the market. In this case too perfect choice! You will visit market but he explains and show the history of some important monuments. He speaks a good american english, has a friendly attitude that increase interest and participation. And last but not least he takes beautiful pictures! At the end of the tour you have the chance to buy souvenirs at a competitive price! Of course recommended this tour too!
