Exceptional hospitality with comfort Such a great experience. Started with an on time arrival at our location on the Corniche followed by an exceptionally well planned day seeing the highlights in Alexandria. Really knowledgeable about history and answered all our questions at the sites we visited and even sights we didn’t. He took us to places we would have never found in our own and shared very specific details from various scholars and archaeologists. Our Seafood lunch was very tasty and a nice time to relax. Comfortable vehicle and he always found good parking. I will be recommending Tarek to all my friends!

Fascinating land of the pharoahs From the moment we touched down at Alexandria Airport, our guide Tarek was there to receive us and took us throughout our 3 day Alexandria/Cairo tour. What else can I say about Egypt that everyone else has said except that it was the best trip ever to just be immersed in the so rich culture. Everything was so rich and deep. The people especially, the smells, sounds, the mesmerizing sites. All so stimulating. I can never top this trip if it hadn’t been for our guide Tarek and Cairo Private Tours. Everything was so moving for me. Thank u Tarek for showing us your fascinating country.

Amazing! We were in Egypt for 2 weeks and had an amazing trip! The private trip was planned perfectly and we had a wonderful time! All I did was tell them what all we wanted to do and they took care of the rest! Itinerary planning, bookings, cars, guides.. everything! Our guides Khalefa in Cairo and surrounding areas, Nagah in Luxor and Aladdin in Aswan and Abu Simbel were exceptional! We felt treated like family! What a memorable time!! 100% recommend!!
