Laura we used Private Guide Ayman Ahmed. You can look him up on facebook or through Trip Advisor. I highly recommend him. He is professional, polite, punctual, speaks English, has amazing knowledge of Egypt and Egyptology and caters to your needs. We were only in cairo 4 days and covered so much. He has "special" access to several sites and pyramids and makes suggestions to maximise your visit. If you would like more information I will gladly supply more.....Well worth booking Ayman. :)
