We were rather worried about the security situation in Cairo prior to the trip and therefore searched for a private tour on Tripadvisor to ensure our safety. Indeed, the tour was totally worth it!
Amir Fawzy was our guide, our security guard and our private photographer. He ensured that touts did not adversely affect our experience and took so many photos for us that it felt like a second honeymoon! A university graduate, Amir's command of English was good. He was able to tell us a lot more about Egypt - more than just history!
Both Amir and our driver Sam were always in touch with latest news to avoid problem areas in Egypt so we always felt safe. Sam was also very good in avoiding traffic jams (so we had minimal time on the roads!) and drove us safely to Alexandria despite low visibility on the foggy morning.
