Ayman was a really fabulous tour guide. We are a family of 5, with 3 teenagers. We wanted to spend a few days seeing Cairo before going to Sharm el Sheikh. We are an adventurous family and tend to do our "own thing", but felt like we needed a guide in Cairo - to navigate the city and for safety. We selected Ayman to be our guide and it was the best decision we could have made for our time in Cairo. From the very beginning, he was very prompt in answering e:mails and together we came up with an ideal itinerary for our family for our 2 days in Cairo. We booked our hotel about a month in advance. Two weeks before we were to travel, some clashes occurred at the entrance to the hotel we had selected. Within hours of the incident, Ayman had e:mailed and advised us to change hotels and locations - and advised suitable options for us.
Once we arrived in Cairo, he and his driver picked us up in a very spacious, nice, air-conditioned van and delivered us to our hotel - it was very late in the evening. We spent the next two days touring Cairo. Ayman was always prompt, professional, very knowledgable and extremely flexible.....a key when traveling with teenagers. He handled all of the arrangements to make our days very smooth and easy - purchasing tickets, providing breakfast each morning, always having water available and the van was always there waiting for us and we finished an activity. He was extremely knowledgeable about everything we did - and was happy to answer all of the children's questions. There were two times that we needed to change plans mid-course and he handled it with ease and aplomb - "moshi - moshi!" He was also great about taking family photos for us. He taught the children to bargain in the markets - which they loved! He scheduled a lovely sunset camel ride and boat ride on the Nile for us. Both excellent activities that we all enjoyed!
When we finished each evening, he made sure we knew where we were going to eat dinner and advised us about ordering if we asked, and before we left for Sharm, he gave us the namesof a few restaurants there to try. He was a walking "trip advisor" for us!
The children don't always enjoy city tours, but loved our two days with Ayman. He made it not only educational for them, but fun & enjoyable.....not always an easy task!
We highly recommend Ayman for your time in Egypt - he will make it an amazing adventure for you! Thanks Ayman!!
