The tour is really informative and interesting, Youssef is really passionated and knows a lot about Egyptian history. He is a really open- minded person and pleasant, he spoke and focused about the important stuff about history without mention legend or other " fake attractive " stories. Really recommended

Youssef es un guía excepcional, conoce a la perfección la historia egipcia y sabe transmitirla de forma amena. Además, visitar El Cairo con él te permite descubrir y entender la cultura local. ¡Muy muy recommendable!

Youssef is a really nice tour guide! He explains in great detail all the history and things about each place visited. He is always willing to take your photos in the best spots, and he willingly pays you the metro ride and a bottle of water. We had a great day touring with him!

Youssef was amazing! He spent over 6hrs with us showing us around Coptic Cairo and the citadelle and his enthusiasm was constant. He really took the time to explain everything in detail and to answer each question we had. He also took wonderful photos of us and knew all the best angles! We also really enjoyed being able to live a small portion of what people from Cairo live by taking the metro and the mini-bus.

Amazing guide and tour. I have done lots of guru and free tours in different places and Mohamed is the best guide I have ever met. He is also the best guide we have had in egypt. He has an impressive knowledge, he is very passionate, nice, cheerful, kind, helpfull and high professional. He explained everything to us, he told us lots of interesting things about the tour and egipt and egiptian people and this was very interesting for us. We got to know the old Cairo and we wouldnt got to know most of the places by ourselves. It was also nice to share this experiences with other tourist and we had a great day all together. Thank you very much Mohamed youssef for a great experience!!!
