Be careful what you wish for. Phrasing your question the way you did has probably made you one of Egypt’s most popular people. You will now receive (1) any number of recommendations from previous tourists who think their guide is/was the wisest and the best there ever was or will ever be, (2) some not so subtle ‘adverts’ written by the guides themselves or by their friends, lovers, family, and cronies and (3) a few useful suggestions from past visitors.

The last is of course what you want but telling one from another isn’t always as easy as one might think. In short, read closely and cautiously.

According to BBeckett (see above post), this is a category 3 reply - a useful suggestion from a past visitor.

My second trip to Egypt was greatly enhanced by an excellent guide, Mohamed ElShaer. You can contact him at midobluesky@hotmail.com

Look here tripadvisor.co.uk/Attractions-g294200-Activi… and click on a location, then "Activities" to give all companies/guides reviewed on TA for that location
