Ahmed Sultan

Guide profile:

Egypt and the many beautiful treasures hidden within it's shores has always been my first love. It has been with pride and pleasure that I have been able to share my passion with happy travelers over many years.

In 2005 I graduated as an Egyptology and Tour Guide gaining qualifications recognized by both the Egyptian General Tourist Guides Syndicate (EGTGS) and the World Federation of Tourist Guide Association (WFTGA). Since then I have worked with various well respected and reputable companies organizing tours from as far afield as Alexandria to Abu Simbel and Sinai to Siwa.

I am reliable, flexible and highly professional and offer tailor made tours to fit your interests and needs-all at affordable prices. I try to make your trip as interesting as possible and if you want can take you 'off the beaten track' to experience real Egyptian life behind the tombs and temples. The people always welcome visitors with warmth, a smile and a cup of tea-an experience sure not to be forgotten!

Don't hesitate to contact me to start the trip of a lifetime in the magical land of Ancient Egypt.

Very Highly Recommended!

Ahmed met us at Cairo Airport and made our whole Cairo experience very smooth through to our departure. He took us to the sights we wanted to see (Giza, Dashur etc) and made some suggestions of other places we would like to see based on talking to us.

If you are going to the Cairo Museum its a great idea to have him come along there too as there is so much to see that unless you know what you are looking for you will miss!

Ahmed was Quick to reply & has excellent Engl

Ahmed and his wife were superb. They collected me from my hotel on time and structured the day as requested, whilst adding there local knowledge in regard to places to visit. Polite, organised and very knowledgable; I had a fantastic day experiencing the wonders of Cairo.

Ahmed replied to all my questions swiftly, provided all info required, even managed to book a car (clean&comfy) on very short notice. The 8 hour tour covered the Gizeh pyramids, the citadel and the old town. It very much fitted my interest, not too little info, not too much. He also proofed to be a kind of person one likes spending time with (polite, well informed, widely interested etc.) and gave me good insight into everyday life in Egypt. As such I am glad to recommend him ...

Spent an excellent day at Giza, Sakkara and Dahshur Pyramids with Ahmed. He met me on time and was friendly and welcoming. The minibus was clean and airconditioned which is needed in the traffic!

Ahmed's English is excellent and his knowledge of Egyptian history both old and new is fantastic. He was able to explain things so clearly that I now feel I myself am a bit of an expert in Egyptology! He has an excellent sense of humour and fun which made the day an unforgettable experience.Recommended
