Sherif was absolutely brilliant. Very informative and enthusiastic. We was running late but it was no trouble. The history was amazing and great to stop at local places instead of tourist ones. Thanks so much.

If you go to Khan el-Khalili without Sherif's two-thumbs-up explanation, you're experiencing the place as if you're taking "a T-bone steak without a T-bone!" I applied for this tour as I loved the one at the Giza Pyramids, and yes, it was magnificent once again! It became a private tour as two other people made last-minute cancelations, so I ended up tipping Sherif double the original amount I thought of. Yet no regrets, and I'm happy that I had enough cash to do so this time!;-) I still feel super spoiled to have enjoyed his time and amazing knowledge alone. I could see that Sherif was not just a tour guide working for money but an enthusiastic professional who was eager to bridge fascinating Egypt and people from outside. Khan el-Khalili is one of the most marvelous historical places. Take your great opportunity to learn about the significance it has--in addition to shopping without getting scammed! :D

Sherif is a really nice person and a wonderful guide! He explains in great detail all the interesting stuff about everything you visit and he is fun and very friendly! He will take you to the best photo spots and take the pictures for you! We ended up doing 3 tours with him in Cairo: the pyramids one, the street food one and this one. He was the best guide ever in all 3 of them!
