Customer's Opinions about guide from Cairo, Egypt
Just a quick, late-evening contact to to say how much we enjoyed our two days with you. They were a great end to what was already a fantastic holiday, and quite different from what had gone on before. How fortunate we were in getting in contact with you via your website in the first place, and to have engaged the only 'non-crazy driver' in Egypt. Who knows what would have happened to us if we hadn't!!!
We wanted to say a huge thank you for today!!!! You were truly an angel sent from God, made us feel so comfortable and have definitely taught us a lot...have been talking all night about what we have learned and comparing notes :)
thank you for all your efforts - bargaining, knowledge, genuine care, and honesty.....we appreciate it very much! :) :)
Please email us any links for us to make comments and reviews.....more than happy to support what you do!
And finally, if you are ever in Australia.....even if it is in twenty years - please email me as we would love to take you around and show you the courtesy you have shown us! :)

Well we have arrived back safely, it's a bit cooler here!.
We just wanted to say a massive thank you for the two days that we spent with you.
It's always a difficult decision choosing a guide - we got it 100% right this time. From the minute you turned up it was just like being with an old friend. You have a style that makes your guests feel like they are special, your knowledge of Egypt is also a massive plus - believe me we have had guides who know nothing.
We also had a lot of fun and laughs along the way, we will definitely be back to see you again.
To any future clients - if you are looking for a guide Hany is the man!
From a personal point of view it was great being with somebody with an Engineering background - I believe your theory will soon become the accepted version of events, I will certainly be promoting it.

We both want to thank you so much for the tremendous difference you made to our all too short spell in Cairo. You looked after us wonderfully well, and without you we would have gained only a very small fraction of the experiences, knowledge, and memories which we have come away with. Our trip to Cairo is definitely one to remember. Thank you so much.
For anyone planning a trip I really must say that if you are thinking of doing it on your own without a guide then DON’T. You really will be wasting the money you spend getting and staying there. If you try to pick and choose group trips and go to places by taxis you really will miss out on the personal attention, and if there are two of you, or a family, then you will actually probably end up spending more than you would by hiring your own guide. And when it comes to choosing your guide don’t forget to look for experience. Hany has it all, I suspect that if there is anything he does not know then you really wouldn’t need to know it!
Theresa My wife and I engaged Hany through the internet on our recent trip to Cairo and Egypt in July. As well as providing himself as a guide in the Cairo region, he organized local guides and accommodation throughout lower Egypt. At all times he was extremely courteous and good humored, and provided us with good value for money. He has an excellent knowledge of Egyptian history, archaeology and all the various sites, and is a fluent English speaker (I am not sure what other languages he speaks).
Like all travelers to a ‘strange’ foreign country like Egypt, we were a little hesitant about booking someone unknown through the internet, but we had absolutely no regrets in our choice of Hany.
Hany is a gentleman by any standards, highly knowledgeable, and very enjoyable and safe company. He has high moral and ethical standards and I do not believe that he would ever ‘rip-off’ a visitor to his country. We met his wife and she is also a charming and well educated person.
I would not hesitate to recommend Hany as a guide and tour organizer to any foreign traveler, male or female.
We both want to thank Hany Halim so much for the tremendous difference He made to our all too short spell in Cairo. He looked after us wonderfully well, and without him we would have gained only a very small fraction of the experiences, knowledge, and memories which we have come away with. Our trip to Cairo is definitely one to remember.

Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into making our week in Cairo great! It was a pleasure to get to know you, and we appreciated all your insights and your sense of humor. It was wonderful the way you explained the details about the Pharaohs in easy to grasp units. Best of all was your ability to make Egyptian history come alive through your descriptions of what we were seeing at each stop on our tour. We will definitely recommend you to any of our friends who are planning a trip to Cairo. Thank you again.
We had a marvelous time on our tours with Hany Halim.
Hany not only knows Egypt he knows how to bring Egyptian history and culture alive for those he takes under his wing. An engineer by training and a people person by inclination Hany offers interesting and perceptive observations on any topic you choose to discuss.
Hany took us on a pyramids tour that included, at his suggestion and our option, pyramids that pre-date the most famous ones at Giza and are fascinating in their own right, yet rarely visited. Hany also took us through the Egyptian Museum, showing us the highlights of that marvelous place and weaving a historical context of stories that greatly enriched our experience. Hany will also provide you some interesting shopping opportunities if you desire.
Hany is more than a guide. He can help arrange your trip. Although we did not use him in this capacity, we would on a return trip because we saw the hotel he had arranged for one of his other clients.
I highly recommend Hany. You will enjoy your time with him!
I spent half a day in Cairo to visit the pyramids, and Hany was a fantastic guide and companion to do it with. He is a real go-getter for whom no request is too small or too large - all to happy to do whatever it takes to make your visit enjoyable and memorable. Our conversations were stimulating and laced with humour, and he surely is connected to get you in at the sights very quickly. He is clearly very knowledgable about the ancient Egypt civilisation, and shared very interesting facts with me. I don't think Cairo would have made such a big impression on my iif I didn't explore it with this interesting man. I am looking forward to come back and see more with you, Hany!
What a pleasure it is for us to have met you and to explore with you the
many aspects of Cairo, with the Citadel, the Mosques, St. Sergius and to
enjoy your expertise about the pyramids at Saqqara! You are not simply a
"tour guide" but a true ambassador and made us feel quite at home in Egypt,
If you need testimony to your friendly, cheerful company as well as
excellent organization and knowledge, we will be happy to sing your praises.
You are a good reader of character and accommodated us beautifully.
Our heads are still spinning with the wonderful places and stories you wove
around them, much as if we have staggered out of Ali Baba's cave under the
spell of the one-thousandth night.
We are grateful to you for having enriched our lives.
With all best wishes,
