“Ibrahim was our tour guide and he was amazing, very nice and respectful, his English was perfect he went above and be on and we did everything we wanted to do and then some he really made our experience special he made us feel very comfortable, he was very knowledgeable about everything, from the pyramids and all the ancient ruins in the museums, even took us shopping and as we all know people can haggle you when at the pyramids and shopping around town, and he kept them all away which we extremely appreciated, and helped us translate when making purchases to ensure we got the best deal, he even took us out for refreshers and lunch at the end of the day !!! And extremely considerate he took a lot of very good pictures he was like a personal photographer, he did everything at our pace. We originally had booked him as our shuttle from the Cairo airport to our hotel when we first arrived in Egypt, he was on time to pick us up from the airport, He was waiting with our name and actually found us as soon as we walked out the door of the airport! he was also extremely punctual when picking us up from the hotel to start our tour and very accommodating considering we booked our tour on our ride from the airport to our hotel. Anytime in Cairo or the surrounding area I would definitely book him for any thing needed whether it be a tour or just an airport shuttle .”
