Hares is not only a great guide, but a fantastic tour organizer. He is thorough, methodical, attentive, detail-oriented, and a pleasure to work with.

He helped us plan an entire 10 day itinerary - all in advance, so that we didn't have to spend any down time during our trip. We had everything planned almost down to the hour, and everything ran like clockwork.

We toured Cairo, Alexandria, Abu Simbel, Luxor/Karnak/Valley of the Kings, Edfu and Esna, Abydos, an oasis and the surrounding white and black deserts, and of course the pyramids at Giza, Hares helped schedule and arrange all our domestic air tickets, boat rides, and hotel reservations. He guided us almost everywhere (including taking overnight trains down south while we flew), and in other instances arranged drivers and guides who were courteous and punctual.

His Cairo driver, Hamed (aka Jay-Z) was great. Very personable, easy going and accommodating. This gentleman works 24/7/365 and seems to never sleep!

We have traveled to over 60 countries and rarely have we found such a reasonable, reliable, knowledgeable, and friendly guide and tour organizer.

King Tut would be proud!

Hares has been great from pre-trip communications and arrangements to follow-ups during the trip. He has good connections with industry professionals so will be able to give his guests free upgrades in hotels, cruises, etc. when the opportunities come up.

My driver in Cairo, Hamed, was the best local person I met in Egypt. He's very friendly and helpful.

We booked the tour Cairo-Luxor-Aswan-Abu Simbel with Hares Sayed in December 2014. Everything was perfect from the first moment he picked us from airport on the our first day in Egypt to the last moment when we left Egypt.
Hares not only the great guide who loves his country and enthusiastic about it but he also really good organizer. He prepared our trip with great precision, we were taken care of at every moment of the whole trip. All was neatly planned and professionally done. We were enormously impressed by his work.
Also he hired another great guide to accompany us in in Luxor, on our Nile cruise, in Aswan, in Abu-Simbel, Mohamed Medjay (fetas44@yahoo.com, not sure Medjay is the last name or pseudonym). I can't thank Hares and Mohamed enough for absolutely amazing experience. We are travelling a lot but for the first time we met such dedicated to their work, own country couture and highly educated guides.
The whole tour was very enjoyable experience.

We had a lovely, fascinating, informative and memorable trip to Egypt.. all thanks to Egypt Tour Guide. Hares was in charge of our trip and he is an extremely knowledgable person and was very fluent in English. We were easily able to discuss the history and culture of Egypt. The food arrangement was excellent and even though my husband is a vegetarian, the company went out of their way to arrange for excellent vegetarian Egyptian food for him so he could enjoy the cuisine and culture to the maximum. My son also enjoyed a lot... and Hares was extremely considerate with our needs and requirements as we were traveling with a small kid. He was extremely patient with all the questions we had at all the places,... and even read out egyptian Hieroglyphs scripts whenever we asked him to... and always with a smile. We have travelled a lot and Hares has been one of the best guides' to us.... and especially in Egypt, a country so rich with all the archeological wonders.. we couldn't have gotten a better guide and arrangements.

The service provided by Touch Egypt was exceptional and well above what I was expecting. I would be happy to recommend them to anybody wanting to see the wonders of Egypt.
Our Guide was more than I could have wished for in her knowledge, not just of Ancient Egypt, but on current Egypt.
Our driver was something to behold as he got us through Cairo traffic, this was an amazing experience. Couldn't ask for a better driver.
Thank you Hares for looking after us.
