Only one word: Excellent! It was better than what I expected. He showed us the real Kairo experience, he explained us everything with a lot of detail and gave us time to take pictures. Actually, he helped us and took a lot of pictures of us and was very nice about it! I 100% recommend this tour.

Mohamed have a really good tour of a wide range of the city. Making sure we had ample water and breaks along the way. Gave us a huge amount of useful information and enough time to enjoy what we were looking at.

The tour was very well planned and explained as well as performed. We could speak english FLUENTLY with Mohamed (which is very valuable here as it is not possible with most of the guides) answering all of our questions extensively and providing good conversation along the tour apart from his great explanations. The tour starts by going into the metro which is a really food way to feel the day to day egiptian transport away from the "door to door by taxi" tourism of Egypt. Youssef provided us with a very good breakfast/launch as a tour break and the food was amazing. He also provided us with water and some refreshment as well as transport. He was patient awhile we took pictures and helped us all time to find good sports even capturing the moment himself. He is a really kind person and the best guide we had in our 12 day trip arround Egypt.

He was very observant on what the guests are more interested in. He adjust his way of tour depending on our likes. This is of course pre-arranged with him in advance. He was flexible and knows a lot of info regarding the sites. I will contact him again when I'm back in Cairo. He makes the group feel safe when we are with him.
