Hello. I am Wael Kamouna, a freelance tour guide/Egyptologist since 2008 with 12 years' experience in the field of tourism, and a degree from Cairo University. I'm a member of EGTGS (Egyptian General Tourist Guides Syndicate) and can custom design trips all over Egypt to suit the interests and the needs of guests, and can be tailored to suit all interests. I also arrange customized tours for individuals and groups throughout Egypt. Egypt is full of hidden treasures! It is not only the ancient pyramids, but its streets, its people, the feeling of walking on the bank of the Nile at night, the Islamic and the Coptic parts, in addition to its monuments and museums. It would be my pleasure to show the visitors the charm of every part of modern and ancient Egypt.

Wael was very friendly and knowledgeable. But because of the corona-pandemic, we couldn't enter two of the sites.
