I could not imagine touring Egypt in a better way. Tamer is an excellent and experienced guide who was able to provide an exclusive and behind the scenes access to Egypt that you simply cannot get in a large bus group or by doing it yourself. There is no way that you would be able to see some of the most memorable things without an expert fully licensed guide who has local connections and knowledge.
With him we were able to interact with the local people which was so much more interesting. Beyond that he is a fun and amazing person. We saw so much without waiting in any lines, with an all-inclusive fee and all along the way expert explanation and insight. He guided us through temples, pyramids, museums, local attractions, churches, restaurants, the old city, local workshops and the best places to buy an assortment of goods at fair prices, advising us on quality and price also.
We had a luxurious mini-bus just for us with a professional driver from the airport and all places in between.
For a portion of the trip we flew south to Luxor, where Tamer arranged for another local guide, Ayman, to meet us at the airport and provide local insight and context while there which was absolutely superb. Ayman took us through Karnak, Luxor, valleys of kings and queens plus we got to see the countryside.
Hiring Tamer to escort us during our time in Egypt was the best money I ever spent on a holiday.

We so very much enjoyed our time with Tamer. He was personable, honest, and we had a great time visiting Giza, Saqqara, and Dashur with him. We also went to the citadel, Mohammed Ali palace, 3 mosques, 3 coptic churches, and the souq with him. Tamer helped us understand where all the sited were in historical context. He gave us great advice on where to spend our time and was really value-add for our site seeing strategy. Our kids (aged 12, 10 & 9) loved him. He is a Christian and gave us lots of Biblical context for what we are seeing and an understanding of the history of the Christian in Egypt. This was a big selling point for our family. He really went above and beyond with helping us find good food and giving us great shopping/pricing advice. He even helped us arrange a visit to Mt. Sinai during the latter part of our trip. We found Tamer to be honest, friendly and fun. We would highly recommend him for any families traveling to Cairo. We had a great time!!

Simply amazing. Very informative, kind, patient, and attentive. Nermeen was punctual and always had great suggestions for things to see, do, eat, etc. We felt so happy and comfortable having a female guide that we could trust and relax around. She even met us on the ground at the crack of dawn after hot air ballooning and walked us to the airport entrance when it was blocked off the vehicles. I can’t say enough great things and will book her again if returning to Luxor. Love you Nermeen!

Based on reviews and research on Egyptian tour guides we decided to plan/book our December 2020 Egypt trip with Tamer. We started our itinerary in Luxor. There we met an associate of Tamer's named Ayman. He was our tour guide on the Nile Cruise from Luxor to Aswan. Because of COVID there were only a handful of ships touring at that time and most of the attractions were pretty much desolate. Tamer and Ayman have this down to a science. They've done so many of these tours that they are very flexible with time/schedule changes and are able to modify the itinerary on the fly. The cruise was aboard the MS Concerto. The cruise is booked and paid for as part of the whole package. They will quote you all of the transport between locations in private vehicles and handle all of the logistics. Also the prices quoted are very reasonable.

What is not included are the Egyptian tourist visa, entrance fees to sites, non-cruise accommodations, flights, tour guide tips, and any extra requests that you may have. But this is all handled up front and noted in any previous conversations.

After the Luxor-Aswan tour we flew to Cairo and Tamer was going to be our tour guide but he was unable to do so because he got sick. However, he arranged another tour guide for us named Mosry. Once in Cairo they were also able to coordinate a COVID test for us (airline required) along our scheduled tours.

Overall the tour guides are extremely nice, knowledgeable and professional. We had a great time in Egypt and with all of the uncertainty of traveling during COVID, we were glad to contract the services of Tamer, Ayman and Mosry.

Ayman was a great tour guide! He planned our itinerary down to the last detail and also adjusted time for us to do a hot air balloon ride which became available last minute and was amazing to do! His English was super and his knowledge of Ancient Egypt History was excellent, he was always willing to answer all of our questions. He accompanied us to the street markets which we really appreciated and also suggested a great spot for food on the last day. I could not recommend Ayman enough, he was the perfect tour guide for Luxor!

Tamer was a wonderful guide. He worked with us to create an itinerary that allowed us to see parts of Cairo that were new to us including garage city, the cave church, and the market at night. He even treated us to snacks in the market. :)

It was our second trip to Egypt about a year and a half after the first one. This trip was different because we were traveling with another couple and adventure and budget goals were different than the first trip.

Tamer did it again! I don’t think we’ll ever get tired of visiting Egypt and that’s because of the wonderful guides we have. Tamer creates a detailed plan that’s carefully considered with all of your details and the result is always a trip of a lifetime. We spent time in Cairo with Tamer and requested a focus on the Cairo Museum, so we spent most of a day wandering through the exhibits and asking Tamer questions as we roamed. It was perfect. We also wanted to spend time at Garbage City and Tamer made that happen as well. On our first trip we stayed in a luxurious hotel, but this trip we asked for budget lodgings and the Anglican Guesthouse was just right; the gorgeous Marriott hotel was nearby so we could enjoy the restaurants and opulence; Tamer thought of everything.

We flew to Luxor where we met our friend and guide Ayman Ibrahim and enjoyed a 4-night Nile cruise and a visit with our friends. Ayman has a gift for making history come alive. We love the pace of the towns and villages along the Nile!

The end of our visit was spent in Hurghada, where Tamer selected the Continental Hotel resort. It was amazing to walk out by the pools and feel the air, its hard to explain but the weather was so perfect and you didn’t feel cold or hot…but just right. Some of the group went snorkeling in the Red Sea and we all went boating. It was reasonably priced and beautiful out on the water. I’m told the snorkeling was spectacular. All the meals were part of the package, like a cruise. The rooms were lovely and clean.

So, its fair to say Tamer did it again! Egypt will be a destination for us again, I know.

Having Tamer as a guide made my Cairo layover the amazing experience where I have learnt a lot about Egypt itself but also was given different point of views that have opened my eyes.

Tamer is extremely knowledgeable and well prepared and everting from the pick up to the drop off was smooth and professional that only the best can do.

If you have even a day in Cairo look for Tamer as you want the best

Tamer was a fantastic guide. From organising the trip to pickup, transportation, all the way through it was smooth. Tamer was flexible in planning the trip allowing us to to tailor it to what we wanted to do. He gave suggestions and we planned a fantastic day in Fayoum. Tamer gave us lots of information about where we were visiting and about Egypt and Egyptian history. He was able to answer all our questions and gave detailed information about many different topics; even those not related to the trip. You could tell he really knew his stuff!

He is a thoughtful guide and allowed us to take as much time as we liked, offered to take pictures, and was accommodating every step of the way. If you are coming to Egypt, book Tamer to show you Egypt, you won’t regret it.

We had a wonderful trip thanks to Tamer.

Our family hired Tamer to (1) transport us from CAI to our hotel and (2) guide us to the pyramids and the museum. Tamer is knowledgeable, personable, and friendly. Our family is aged 50+ to 80+ and Tamer was excellent ensuring we traveled at the appropriate pace. Tamer is an excellent guide. If we are ever in Cairo again and need guide services, Tamer is the person! We recommend him without reservation!
