Ahmed is an amazing guide. He was briliant, always made sure everything was alright, took a good care of us, made sure we had enough water and even gave us some food. He was also very patient and his knowledge of the Egyptian culture is impressive. Thanks to Ahmed we enjoyed an amazing day in Cairo.
