Marwa is an excellent guide. She is very knowledgeable and knows exactly where to get great photos. She also got us access to the site before the other tourists hence my photo shots are not cluttered with a bunch of tourists in them.

Shrouk was great! She was well informed but also readily admitted that there is still a lot of debate in the Egyptology community.
