  • Our tour guide Mahmoud was incredible! He was timely, knowledgeable and answered all of questions. Mahmoud negotiated our camel ride/ tip where we had heard rates can change during the ride and offered better locations for photos and souvenirs. We never felt rushed and could stop on a whim for photos or souvenirs. We'd hire him again and will recommend to our friends visiting Egypt!
