Owner description: Salam Alikom my lovely travellers. I am an English speaking tour guide and Egyptologist and I am the owner of Moustafa Egypt Tours. We have been organising tours all over Egypt since 2000. I love Egypt and can only tell you what is in my heart and share with you my love for this great land and its people. No matter how often you visit, there is always something new to see and discover. I don't know why this is, it's just the way things are in Egypt. As you drive through some of the busiest streets of Cairo towards Giza, you are surrounded on all sides by honking, bumper-to-bumper traffic, then suddenly without warning you see the Pyramids right before your eyes and you not only know where you are, you feel it too. It is the contrast between the old and new and the ease with which Egyptians bridge the gap that I find most amazing.We offer tours all over Egypt ... we also offer tailor made tours for Egypt.Welcome to Egypt, or in Arabic....

“n unforgettable tour with the best guide”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

I was in Cairo for a business trip and only had a half-day free to see what the city had to offer. Luckily I was booked on a tour with Moustafa and now have some of the most unforgettable memories that I will always treasure. Let me start by saying that from the minute I met Moustafa his energy and his love of Egypt and its history was clear to see and my own love for Egypt began!!. Even though we were on a race against time Moustafa ensured I saw all of the main attractions. We managed in a half-day to fit in a trip to the Egyptian Museum, which is endless but we quickly went through the main attractions with an in-depth history lesson at each stop, a trip to see the Giza pyramids, and the sphinx, including time for a camel ride. I also had time to stop for souvenirs and now have a beautiful print of the pyramids at sunset on papyrus paper that is hanging on my wall at home as a reminder. I can’t thank Moustafa enough for the most amazing trip and for being my personal photographer. Not only is he a fantastic tour guide but he very quickly becomes a great friend. I highly recommend Moustafa’s tours for anyone looking for a trip to remember!

“Moustafa loves Egypt!!!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

First off, I highly recommend hiring a guide in Cairo. It's a large city and it isn't easy to get around. Being from the West it's also a little tough not understanding Arabic. My wife and I went to Cairo around Christmas on our honeymoon. We hired Moustafa for three days to help us learn about Egyptian history. He's worked at a lot of the sites there and has a huge love of Egypt, so he was a great choice. We've hired guides before and I can say beyond a doubt we liked Moustafa the best. The reason was that he was so enthusiastic to show us everything. He was genuinely excited to show us the sites he loved instead of just sitting there and letting us have "free time" for 90% of the tour. And he really went out of his way to show us some Egyptian culture and taste the local food. Also, he was very flexible. Our original itinerary had Alexandria in it. When the protests there got a little risky Moustafa offered to change over to Islamic Cairo. Just a little bit of a disclaimer here - like most tour guides he generally won't talk about religion or politics but my wife and I wanted to learn more about Islam while we were in Cairo and Moustafa really did a great job explaining it to us and showing off the city's beautiful mosques. He also brought the stories to life - he's probably the most animated tour guide I've ever had. After Cairo my wife and I went to Luxor. Moustafa gave us great advice and gave us a good deal on a guide there that we really liked as well. One more note - we're from the US and most of our friends there seem to think that Egypt is a little sketchy right now due to the protests. We never felt that at all. If anything it was exciting to be there when people were voting on their constitution. I highly recommend visiting it and we already want to go back! (make sure you go to Luxor as well - Egypt is so much more than just the pyramids!)

“"Best guide" "Best tour" "Best holiday" "BEST COUNTRY"”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

The best guide I met ! He was always ready to answer at any questions I asked! He helped everyone to understand Egypt History (not really easy for anyone who never read a lot about)! He has good "contact" with people ! Good english ! Very polite! Finally, he is always listening each person of his group and he is always happy !
Than it's was the Best tour I did with The Best Guide in the Best Country !

“Expectations exceeded”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

I should start by saying that I am very glad to write this review. His English is very good, I didn't have any problems understanding him. Not only does he know a lot about Egyptian history but Moustafa's personality and attitude is just excellent. He gladly answered all my questions :) and for sure he has a deep knowledge of the Egyptian culture. When we went to the Cairo museum we didn't have a lot of time to be there but he made an extra effort to show us the best. He put an extra effort to make us feel comfortable and constantly asked us if we were happy and having a good time. In terms of safety he also took care of us very well. We hope one day we can go back to Cairo and would be glad to book our trip with him. I am sharing a picture of our trip with him.
