My name is Maha Ali Elhefny, and I am an English Tour Guide, Archaeologist and Egyptologist.
After finishing high school, I trained to become a Tour Guide, spending four years in one of Cairo’s universities. There I studied about the history of Egypt since the dawn of history, up until our modern era. After that, I received my Tour Guide license from the Ministry of the Tourism in Egypt, so I believe I am well qualified to be your tour guide.
I have been working in the Tourism industry since 2005. I am a member of the Egyptian Tourist guides syndicate and an active member in the WFTGA besides being a founding member of the ATGU.
I love sharing Egyptian History with tourists because I believe our history doesn't only belong to the Egyptian people, but to the whole of humanity.
I tailor make your Cairo trips based on your time and budget. Besides Cairo, I can also provide tours to other parts of Egypt e.g. Alexandria, Luxor, Aswan, Sharm el-Sheikh etc.
Your safety and pleasure is paramount to me, and I also guard you from over-zealous sales people and ensure that you have a pleasant trip. Solo travellers, women, family groups - are all welcome. Visiting the pyramids is often a visitor's lifetime dream trip, so I promise to make your trip, unforgettable! Contact me for more information.
Recent reviews of this tour guide:
Amazing! Maha was extremely professional, personable, on time and overall just a great person to be around. I felt completely safe as we traveled to the Egyptian Museum, the Hanging Church and Khan Al-Khalili. Maha also has a quite extensive University level knowledge of Egyptology as well as History in general. We would walk up to objects in the museum and she could tell you the complete history of everything. Choose Maha. Honestly you won't regret it. Thanks Maha!

Reviews of this tour – by clients who booked!
Maha was a perfect and resourceful guide.
She responded with care and flexibility to our requests : she kindly organized it transfer from the airport and a drive without guider for our first day.
She took us through a smartly planned tour of the Islamic City adapting to our speed and interests, providing at every site a perfectly weighted volume of information.
Will definitely hire her again next time.
