I had Muhammad as a guide and Essam as a driver, both of who were absolutely amazing . Muhammad was an extremely knowledgeable and friendly guide who was well versed on Egyptian history as well as local culture and traditions, explaining everything perfectly . He gave me as much time as I needed at each sight and allowed me time to shop for souvenirs which meant we ran over the tour time, but he was extremely nice and accommodating about this. Essam was an extremely friendly driver who was always there waiting for us at each site and keeping us laughing . Overall great trip and great value for money
