This tour was way more than what I expected. Mohamed is professional, funny, has an unique spark that makes you feel very comfortable as soon as you are with him, and knows a lot about ancient egyptian history. He creates a great narrative that keeps you interested and truly cares about you having an amazing experience. I strongly recommend this tour and any other that has Mohamed as its guide :)

Youssef is a very genuine, authentic and an incredible guide! Our trip to Cairo would not have been same without experiencing these two tours (Old Cairo tour and Pyramids tour) with him. Not only he is extremely knowledgeable but he also keeps is very engaging and makes it fun. Tours with him were some of the best Guruwalk tours that I have experienced in the world. He is also very thoughtful e.g he would always make sure that everyone has a bottle of water when walking, he would randomly, as a gesture, buy local snacks for us to try. He also recommended restaurants in Cairo for us to try which were amazing. If you are in Cairo and want to make the most out of your time, you have to go on a tour(s) with Youssef. Lastly, he takes incredible pictures while guiding you how to pose :)
