Kamal was awesome! Unfortunately I could get an Uber to get me to the meeting point on time, but Kamal was very understanding. He kept saying he would wait for me, but I felt bad for the rest of the group, turns out the rest of the group canceled and Kamal did the tour with just me. We walked all over, I still don’t think I want to try crossing some of those streets with Kamala’s guidance. It was a great time of talking and learning about Cairo and Egypt, plus lots of other discussions. Kamal even spent time helping me find things I wanted to buy. When I visit a country I do research on the traditional foods of that country. Kamal picked this amazing local restaurant where we had dinner together. I honestly don’t see how he has the energy to work during the day and give his nights to tourists and explore his city with them. If you really want to see Cairo and learn so much about Egypt, then get your walking shoes on and sign up for one of Kamal’s tours!

Kamal is a very knowledgeable guide, he is willing to customize the tour so you get the most out of it (Thanks!) Make sure you have enough time to take the tour and be prepared to process a lot of information because you can easily end up in a rabbit hole conversation with him
