I had a wonderful time! We were able to beat the influx of people at all of the museums and other areas thanks to my guide, Mahmoud Emam, who had perfect timing and was extremely kind and welcoming. Driver Hamada was also great. He was able to figure out the best shortcuts around the city. Both are great at navigating around the area which was very helpful. They took me for lunch at an amazing Nile river side restaurant, which had delicious food. Rania did a great job at coordinating all my tours. I wish I could thank them more for what they did. Truly made my time in Egypt wonderful! 12/10 experience!
