Dear Mr. Kamel,
Thank you for arranging our sightseeing in Egypt last month. My mother and I had perfect tours in Upper Egypt and Sinai, and I had a perfect tour of Cairo. We will tell our family and friends that they should book their Egyptian tours through Lady Egypt and request our Upper Egypt guide, Mohamed Garib. I am writing this email to explain why my mother and I believe that Lady Egypt is so lucky to have Mohamed on staff.
Mohamed's excellent English, ability to captivating stories, and deep knowledge of Ancient Egyptian history brought Egypt's rich history to life. My mother and I quickly fell in love with Egypt, mostly because Mohamed's pride in his country is so genuine and contagious.
Mohamed's professionalism is incredible, especially considering his age. At each monument, he welcomed us, explained its importance and how it related to everything else we were seeing, guided us through the monument, and then left us some time to explore for ourselves. Even though Mohamed has probably seen each monument a hundred times, he seemed as enthusiastic as if it was his first trip. At the same time, he was not too eager: he asked us questions to find out how much we already knew, how much more we wanted to know, and then adjusted his presentations to fit our interests rather than telling us everything he knew about each monument.
In short, Mohamed is the perfect guide. He was such a great guide and such a responsible, trustworthy, and fun person while we were in Upper Egypt that I booked additional services through Lady Egypt in order to have him guide me around Cairo while my mother was teaching. Even though his specialty is Upper Egypt, he was able to tell me everything I wanted to know about the Citadel, Coptic Cairo, the antiquities at the Egyptian Museum, and the Pyramids at Giza. I do not know if he prepared extra for that tour or if he just knows Egypt so well, but it is clear that he is committed to being the best guide in Egypt.
Thank you again for arranging all of our sightseeing in Egypt. We will book our tours through Lady Egypt on our next trip. Also, we have been telling all of our friends and family that they should visit Egypt as soon as they can, and that they should book their tours through Lady Egypt with Mohamed Garib as their guide.
Yasser was very helpful and replied quickly to all of my emails. Very nice, and the website was very informative.
Ahmed was waiting for us and helped with every detailed and helped get a room with a wonderful view in Cairo .
Paul went over the entire week and wanted to make it seamless and go smoothly
Everyone we worked with extremely nice and helpful and worked hard to make us happy
Everything was easy and taken care of so that our trip was enjoyable. Thank you!
We arrived uncertain about what to expect on our first trip to Egypt. We left after touring with Lady Egypt Tours feeling we’d seen and learned so much and the experience exceeded our expectations
Everything went so smooth. Everyone was so kind and thoughful of all of our needs and although there was people in our group needed and wanted different things.
