Hesham was the best tour guide of Cairo!
TravelPro1963, 05-06-2022
Hesham provided me with an unbelievable touring experience of the museum and the Old City. His knowledge is unparalleled and he truly made the sites come alive with his in-depth knowledge. Additionally, he and his driver made a formidable team in getting me safely and on time to all the promised sites. Last, he is a super friendly person and throughly enjoyed my Cairo city experience.

Hesham was absolutely AMAZING!! He treated our group like princesses and made sure that we were well taken care of. I would highly recommend him to all of my friends and family and would definitely take a trip back just to book with him. We had an authentic Egyptian experience and he was very knowledgeable about EVERYTHING. Thank you so much for all of your help Hesham!!!
Amazing experience

Excellent tour, the guide (Hesham) and driver (Meghed) were super friendly and professional. I felt safe all along the tour. Hesham was constantly giving historical background on the different stops in the tour, great experience!
Best guide in Cairo

This was my first time in Cairo and I did a few different tours with different guides. Hisham was by far the best. He is an archaeologist by profession and does tours on the side, so he knows EVERYTHING. He is extremely professional, on time, and flexible (spending more time on certain things that interested me, and less time on things that didn’t). He also took me to the nicest (and fairly priced) stores where I found the gold jewelry I was looking for that I hadn’t found with other guides. I very highly recommend Hisham if you are looking for 5-star service and a thorough tour of Cairo. Thanks, Hisham!
Our guide Hesham Khedr was the best! He has a high aknowledge about history and achitecture of Egypt! I recommend him!
