This is a great time to visit Egypt! The number of tourists is low and the prices are reasonable. Visiting Egypt is like a rich immersion into history, you can't help but just want more. Egypt will make an impression on you - making you excited about learning new things and really "feeling" history.

I'm Tariq. I have been a tour guide and organizer since 1991. I love guiding and I'm a people person. In Egypt I will be your private tour guide and egyptologist showing you around the tourist attractions as well as the places where the locals go. I will help you have an insight into the Egyptian culture, history and civilization. You will eat our ethnic food, drink mint tea, look like Lawrence of Arabia, enjoy the impressive Whirling Dervish, smoke the Egyptian water-pipe and learn some Arabic.

If you are travelling with children, don't worry. Egyptians love kids. Sure, a lot of countries say that but it is congenital in Egypt. I enjoy travelling with children. For kids Egypt is BIG - pyramids, camels and desert. Things that make an impression and they will remember these things for the rest of their lives. And you will remember the sheer joy on their faces.

I always make sure my tours meet the budget, needs and interests of my guests. So, I quote the prices PER TOUR not per person. Besides, I do only PRIVATE tours. I organize and take tours all over Egypt. If you are a transit passenger in Cairo, I will pick you up at the airport, show you around the must-do attractions and take you back to the airport at the end of the tour. If you go around the Mediterranean or the Red Sea, I will collect you at your harbour, show you around and escort you back to your ship at the end of the excursion.

Just let me know what you would like to do and I will organize some fantastic tours that will meet your needs, budget, interests and make you more than happy. Should you have any questions or inquiries, please don't hesitate to let me know.
