Karim and Jamila are lovely, lovely people who have obviously put loads of work into creating a virtual Bible tour that is educational and interesting! I honestly was never bored, or watching the clock. Time flew by! Karim knows his stuff, he clearly shows how secular history links to Bible history, without ever stepping into speculation. It really brings Bible accounts to life and I know will help me in my personal study in the future. He is a fantastic tour guide, social and kind, and I know his wife does so much of the behind the scenes work to support this tour! I am very grateful for the hard work of this beautiful pioneer couple, and so happy I could help support them by enjoying this tour and telling everyone I know about it! You will not regret this tour, it is a great way to spend a few hours, by yourself, with friends, or as a family. You'll come away feeling like you learned something, and with a smile on your face :)

I had the opportunity to organize about 75 persons to take a virtual bible tour. Karim did NOT disappoint. He was professional, extremely knowledgeable, and entertaining! He has a wealth of knowledge on the many subjects dealing with the country of Egypt. We enjoyed it very much! I highly recommend his tours. I plan on taking another one as soon as it is available.
I wish one day I can take my family there in person to see Egypt and of course meet Karim and his wife.
If you get a chance, please book a tour with him as soon as possible.

Great experience! Good communication prior to and during our trip. Fadi took excellent care of us, showing us all the important sites in and around Cairo and Giza. Very informative and scripturally accurate tours of the Cairo museum, Saqqara, and the Great Pyramids. Only minor disappointment was that we thought we were going to be able to go inside one of the pyramids and that didn't happen.

Today we made a childhood dream come true and it’s all because of Karim. He made me and my husband feel so welcomed and showed us the time of our lives - I’m not kidding: today is now in my top ten favorite days of my life! His knowledge, amazing ability to navigate the hectic cities of Cairo, Giza and The 6th of October where nothing short of amazing. We felt safe at all times, learned so much about Egyptian culture and ended up feeling more than fulfilled - because of Karim we will be back and will most definitely book to spend another day with him. Highly recommending him to family, friends and coworkers❤️

I really, REALLY enjoyed this tour. I have nothing but praises to sing! I had some ideas of how I wanted to see the pyramids, but Karim knows how to schedule a tour to get the most bang for your buck! He knows all the locations precisely, where they are, and how long it takes to get there so he structures the tours in such a way that you can see as much as possible, instead of trying to plan it yourself. He made us feel very comfortable and safe because he explains everything as he goes, there's no misunderstandings. You can get your iconic camel pyramid picture, and just enjoy the ride. 5/5

Karim has a wide knowledge of the subject, it shows his good preparation for the museum tour, he was very illustrative and gave us a lot of interesting information and examples to understand everything, very patient and friendly. We also tried the best Koshari in Cairo and we had a very productive afternoon with our purchases in the market, 100% recommended.

Karim was an amazing tour guide!! He drove us to each tour, which is nice because if you don't know your way around it may be difficult to get to the places you want to get to. But it was great having Karim as a tour guide because he knows the culture and he knows how to navigate around well. At the same time, you feel like you are talking to a native English speaker. So I felt comfortable asking all of my questions without worry of him not understanding. He kept us free from hassle from the vendors and made us feel safe . Most people may not feel safe because of what we've heard from the media, but Karim knows the culture (native Egyptian) and knows what is really happening in the country.

He has a great knowledge of the ancient Egyptian history and I had a great time hearing the story behind the pyramids. He also gave us the time to take photos and even took an awesome photo of me at the pyramids "flying."

If you are not sure whether to book the tour, I highly suggest you do. Its nice to have a small group and be able to ask questions freely and avoid the hassle of the vendors. Trust me on this one! Karim is a great guy and very friendly.

We had a chance to enjoy the beautiful scenery of a seaside city. So much packed into one day! Karim was able to turn what seemed like just a few hours into an experience of a lifetime. Not to mention great food recommendations. If you're looking for a tour guide, look no further.
