Overview
More
Swefy was born in Al-Darb Al-Ahmar Historic District, Islamic Cairo in 1982. That time I used to see Islamic Cairo monuments such as Al-Dhahabi house, Fakahani mosque, Al-Ghuri mosque, Abul Dhahab mosque, Al-Azhar mosque, in addition to Al-Mokattam hills, from the roof-top of our house at Al-Hammam alleyway in Khoush-Kadam Street. Because of the archaeologic-touristic atmosphere of that geographical area I became a great guide who used to lead expeditions up and down the main street of Islamic Cairo, "Al-muiz street", the southern part of it in particular. My parents were the ones who made the effort to teach me the passion and love of languages, history and geography of my country and this later helped me a lot to guide foreigners around the Islamic Cairo's hidden treasures. When I was 15, I started climbing the minarets of the archaeological mosques in Cairo. I enjoyed the view from the top, a bird's-eye-view of the city. Have a great time in Egypt. Best Regards Mo Swift (Muhammad)

I was very fortunate to have Muhammad accompany me on my visit to the Citadel and the mosques of Sultan Hassan and Ibn Tulun this year. The information he gave as we walked through each of the sites made the experience so much more rich...More

We loved our time with Mo today. He was kind, intelligent, and spoke great English. I usually don’t enjoy tour guides but he was very engaging and funny. He was willing to answer questions about everything. See you soon friend!

Mo found us wandering lost in Islamic Cairo. Without any desire for anything other than just helping my wife and I, Mo took us on one of the most incredible days of our 30 day trip in Egypt. He wanted nothing more than to help...More

I have travelled to over twenty countries and have had double the number of guides, but none have surpassed Muhammad. He is extremely well educated across multiple disciplines—history, contemporary politics, art, and religion. He integrates all the disciplines together in his tours, explaining broad context...More
