Our guide, Salib, was really excellent and made our tour such a highlight for us. Salib was extremely knowledgeable, passionate, friendly and so very humble. It was such a pleasure having him as a guide, we left with a wealth of knowledge that is so invaluable. We enjoyed every part of the trip, the Egyptian Museum was a wow factor, we loved seeing the beautiful churches in Coptic Cairo, especially the Cavern where the Holy Family stayed. It was also so good going through the Bazaar with him, he took us to all the perfect spots where we could get the items we wanted at bargain prices, saving us sooo much money! We also arrived at all attractions just before the big tour groups which was great. Salib also arranged for us to have lunch at one of the boat restaurants, it was so last minute and he made it happen for us, got us a table with a great view and the staff treating us like VIPs. Overall it was a wonderful tour, I highly recommend the private tour, personal touch is given!
