5 stars Juniper S.

I would highly recommend Khaled! We booked a nile cruise from Aswan to Luxor with Khaled and he set us up with his college Ashraf. Ashraf was a fantastic guide. He was informative, kind, listened to us, and gave us free time at every site. He also did his best to make sure we got to sites ahead of the crowds and when the weather was cooler.

Thank you Khaled and Ashraf! I hope more people will visit your beautiful country and love it as much as we did.

Dear Khaled thanks a lot for your services. We valued a lot your quick response and suggestions to our queries.

We made the most of our stay in Cairo -a wonderful experience- from the moment we arrived at Cairo Airport. Your associate there speed up all the migration and customs prodedures for us, and transfer to the hotel, a plus!

Ahmed -the private guide you appointed to us- was very friendly, and professional, and his Spanish was excellent!!

Khaled and Walid made my family trip to Egypt a very memorable one. From the very beginning they listened to what we wanted to accomplish, offered their suggestions and alternatives as appropriate. They put us at ease at every ocassion and tended to our needs at every juncture.

I'm very thankful to the team for such a wonderful service. I highly recommend them to others.

5 stars Rod E. 03 Jul 2015

5 stars Ivor L. 20 Oct 2014

My wife and I had the pleasure of spending a wonderful day in Luxor during which we were guided through all the amazing sights, by our excellent guide, Khaled. From the moment he met us at the airport, Khaled provided us with terrific insights into the historical, traditional, and cultural aspects of Egypt. He detailed knowledge of each of the locations was truly amazing and was hugely beneficial in ensuring we got the most benefit from our brief visit to this special area. At all times Khaled was highly professional, courteous and informative, and his ability to communicate the key aspects of each of the places we visited throughout the day was exceptional. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Khaled to anyone contemplating a visit to Egypt - our experience was greatly enhanced by his guided tour.

5 stars Chelsea R. 04 Oct 2014

Khaled is an amazing tour guide that has a passion for Egypt and sharing his knowledge with others. He accommodated my group and what we wanted to do, but also added things he knew we would love. We visited Cairo, Luxor and did a day trip to Aswan. It was an amazing time that Khaled made possible!

5 stars Scott W. 20 Jun 2014

I thank Khaled Reyad for an excellent job he did guiding me through the wonders of Egypt. Khaled met me at the airport and guided me through all of the fantastic sites there. Both in Luxor and Cairo, Khaled arranged to have a separate driver and a nice, comfortable car to ferry us to all of the sites so there was no big tour bus to wait on. We were able to stop for meals along the way at places he knew served good, safe, authentic Egyptian food so I was able to experience a little bit of what it

5 stars Scott W. 27 Mar 2014

Khaled Reyad was great and set up a great tour for me in Egypt! I'd call him again if I'm ever back in Egypt which I hope I will be some day.

5 stars Sicy B. 08 Jan 2014

"Khaled was an excellent guide and this tour he conducted for us was perfect. He always provided just the right amount of information without overwhelming us. Khaled gave us time to explore on our own as well rather than hovering over us. He was also very flexible in allowing us to change the order of the visits to line up with the best light for photos. Terrific all around."

Tour Guide Comment: You are welcome, I'm here "in Egypt" for you. My best wishes for safe trip back home

5 stars Konstantinos R. 02 Nov 2013

We stayed one week in Cairo (visiting Alexandria and overnight in White desert). Having Khaled as a tour guide with you is highly recommended since not only you feel safe but you also get all the information needed and where to go without worries. Khaled took us to all historic monuments and nice local restaurants. He was so easy going, smiling, and very good with kids (we went with our two daughters). Thank you Khaled for everything and all Egyptians for their kind hospitality.

5 stars Karen K. 06 Jun 2013

Our large group from San Diego went to Egypt, we chose khaled reyad to be our guide, we always felt safe and content with Khaled as our guide. He was extremely knowledgable, and was very well organized. He knew many people and had good connections along the way. He is obviously well known in the area and is well respected. After our tour of the Southern Egypt and the Nile-Luxor regions, we chose to have Khaled lead our group in Cairo. Khaled will meet all your needs beyond your expectations

5 stars Kristen C. 23 May 2013

One of the best guides we have ever had

Khaled guided us for a 5 day tour around Luxor at the beginning of May 2013. We had been before - so we did not just want the 'standard' tour combined with some relaxation as it was a short break from very busy jobs.

From picking us up at the airport to taking us back at the end, nothing was too much for him. He took as to places we had not seen before, and was very informative without being long-winded. He was also very flexible and changed the it

5 stars Brian W. 14 Jul 2012

Khaled was our guide for 2 day while in Luxor; the quality of service was outstanding, professional, flexible, and personable. From the moment he met us at the cruise ship until we said good bye at the airport he was a great help and a "friend" to us in Luxor, we were very impressed with his knowledge at the different sites we went to. His explanation were very thorough, his descriptions were in great detail. He made our experience in Luxor a wonderful, and hassle free

4 stars Shamir P. 10 Sep 2015

Touring Luxor and Aswan with Khaled was unforgettable. He was one of our favorite guides, very knowledgeable, organized, personable & entertaining. We did have 2 issues, one was the driver not putting the AC on high (it was 45 C!). The other was having to tip all 3 drivers without any advanced notice. Having to run to the room to get money and figure out tip under time pressure was annoying. With a few clarifications this trip could have been perfect! We would recommend booking Khaled!

Tour Guide Comment: Mr.Patel. Yes that was happened in Queen Hatshepsuit Parking that we got into the Car while it was hot (before the driver turn the ac on), Sorry, I should wait until the A/C cool the car. For tipping, you kindly asked me to wait and I had a great talk with Mrs. Jigna at the hotel reception until you Sir gave me some tipping to the driver Best
