“Excellent day in Cairo”
Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

We like all foreigners traveling in Cairo over the past few weeks were worried about our safety. Emad picked us up at the airport hotel and brought us to see the pyramids as well as the sphinx. His driver was carefully to avoid any areas that may be reason for concern regarding recent political turmoil. He was very informative and professional. He let us know what to look out for when dealing with local vendors but gave us the autonomy to make our own decisions as to what to buy etc. we have never used a guide before but wre glad we did in this circumstance (hired a guide in Istanbul the next day as well). Once you have established a trust with your guide they will be your most valued relationship on your trip. Emad was for us such a person. Thank you Emad. Colin Sara Kristi and Alex.

“Touring Cairo with Hadeda Travel”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

My son and I had one day to take in the sites and sounds of Cairo before heading to a freediving week in Sharm el Sheikh. Through correspondence with Emad before the trip, we had a completely laid back, custom tour of (our choice), the Egyptian Museum, Pyramids of Giza (and Sphynx) and various other Egyptian touristy venues (Cotton, Essential Oils, Papyrus, Lunch).

Emad's driver patiently waited at the airport to collect us while we tracked down our missing luggage (for 2 hours), then ferried us around Cairo for the remainder of the day in an air-conditioned van. Emad maintained a constant dialogue of the history as well as topical events of Egypt and Cairo, constantly pausing to check if we understood what he was saying. The man's knowledge is encyclopaedic!

After the tour, we were dropped off at our hotel, and collected at 5:30 the following morning by Emad in his personal car to ensure we caught our connecting flight in time.

We had a great time, and would strongly recommend his services to anyone needing a quick tour or more extensive immersion into Egyptian history.

We will cherish the wonderful 2days that we spent with Emad. He is a great Egyptologist, highly trustworthy and resourceful, through professional , above all a great friend.

“Great service ! - a must have in Egypt”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

As a family of four we went to visit Cairo for 2 days and needed a good tour guide with transport in the short time we had. I can say that Emad did an excellent job and showed us what we wanted to see with a very good friendly attitude, professionalism, and a vast knowledge of Egypt and at a good price. Would definitely use him again and will certainly recommend Emad's services.

“Cairo break”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

I wanted to visit Cairo with my 8 year old daughter as she was learning about ancient Egypt at school and I thought it would bring it to life. We agreed to film a video diary and show it to her class mates who'd all thought up questions for us to research.
I planned the whole trip myself and contacted Emad by email, based on the good reviews I'd read.
He was great at responding to my many questions, usually within a couple of hours. He arranged all our transport and offered to even book our hotel. We agreed all prices ahead of the trip - and these were honoured. We had an action packed adventure and visited all the places we'd identified ahead of the trip. Emad was very friendly and was able to tone down the level of information to enable my daughter to get the most out of every place we visited.
