Tarek Halim is Amazing!
I visited Cairo in early April 2019 and booked Tarek Halim via Tours by Locals.com. Tarek is an excellent guide, knows how to maneuver through big crowds and knows the best times to go places and see various things. He was great because he was able to communicate with the locals and negotiate a far price for items etc. I told Tarek I wanted to get authentic gifts for my family so he took me to the "real" papyrus factory and the real Egyptian cotton store :-). He is a great guide who has excellent know of Ancient Egyptian history. He was amazing to walk around the Egyptian museum. He patient and kind and he has to be because he has 5 daughters :-). He also does this great thing where he rates the bathrooms at the different locations, which is helpful! I can't recommend Tarek enough. I'm bringing my family back next year and can't wait for them to meet him.

2 weeks in Egypt
I am always a bit hestitant to travel outside of the US or EU, but felt safe and welcomed everywhere we went. Great guide - did appreciate the extra miles Ossama went on more than one occasion (bartering, negotiating, arranging, etc.). Yep, I would highly recommend Ossama as your guide for touring Egypt 'like a local'. ;-)

Literally felt like magic
One of the best two weeks of my life. I left Egypt with a love and appreciation that I couldn't have expected going in. Our guide, Osama Sharaf, was the best guide I've ever had on any excursion, and his being there the whole trip was what made it so special. I remember him telling us wonderful stories about so many different ancient relics that made history come to life. But when visiting the Egyptian museum, these relics were small things, tucked away in back corners! Without a guide as knowledgeable and passionate as Osama, I would have easily missed so much history and culture. I'm grateful to Egyptian Magic Tours for giving me the trip of a lifetime, and I would recommend this service to anybody looking to experience such a beautiful, awe-inspiring nation.

Amazing experience in a beautiful country!
This was hands down one of the best trips I’ve ever been on. We hit all the classic spots (the Pyramids, Abu Simbel, etc.) and also toured lesser-known locations. Everywhere we went, we got to interact with the people and learn about the culture of Egypt. Ossama is the world’s greatest tour guide, and he knows the answer to any question you throw at him. He’s also passionate about the country and its history, and by the end of the trip you’ll feel the same way. The sights are beautiful, the food is delicious (and plentiful), the people are kind, and the trip is fun. If you’re looking for a vacation, look no further than Egypt with EMT.

A mesmerising exprience
I've always wanted to visit Egypt. I was lucky enough to stumble upon Egypt Magic Tours and most importantly, to have such a cheerful, humble, and knowlegdeable Egyptoligist and guide; Mr. Osama. He immersed me in both ancient history and the modern day culture of the Egyptian people. We ate, walked, shopped and prayed with the locals. The sights that Egypt has to offer can’t be found anywhere else. i had wonderful weather, the sun was warm and the breeze was cool. A light jacket was all that i needed in the evening. The press has been unfair to Egypt – capitalising and dramatizing protests into something more than what they are. I walked all over Cairo and felt perfectly safe. If Egypt is on your bucket list, now is the time to go. It is safe, friendly, economical, and not marinated in global tourists. No lines. The trip of a lifetime.

Trip of a lifetime
Traveling to Egypt I had no idea what to expect. Was this going to be the gorgeous country I had seen from magazine pictures or a scary country with political turmoil? Fortunatley it was the beautiful land from the Nat Geo specials and the people were fantstic. Tarek really made the tour as special as it, he was so much fun to be with the entire time and was incredibly proffessional. The latter was extremely important as in a foreign land and speaking no Arabic, this can be daunting, and he never once left us waiting or unsure of his where abouts. He was incredibly informative the entire way through, and flexible if we wanted to take more time or leave a place early. He's also very funny and great company to have a turkish coffee with. A beautiful country with the most rich history of any on earth, wether its riding a camel or exploring the insides of the pyramids, this is a trip I would recommend for anyone, old or young, as you will take home with you memories to last a lifetime.

Fabulously friendly and informative tours
My husband and I travelled to Cairo for our wedding anniversary. We wanted to see everything. Our wonderful guide, Tarek, collected us from our hotel each day for our tours, which included the pyramids and the sphinx; Memphis; the Egyptian museum; Saqqara; the alabaster mosque and downtown Cairo. Every day was full of curiosity and excitement at the sights and sounds of this spectacular city. Tarek was very informative of all of the sites we visited and at the end of our stay we felt we had gained a wonderful friend. We have every intention of returning to Egypt to do it all (and more) again and will once more book our trips through Egypt Magic Tours.

Magic Indeed
We had heard of bad experiences from others about Egypt and being a family group of only women and children we were worried BUT Egypt Magic Tours made it all worthy! They took very good care of us. Mr. Osama was excellent. Very knowledgeable and passionate about Egypt. They were very timely with our schedule. He ensured we tried their food, talked to the locals and just experienced how the locals live. We loved every minute of our tour. Beautiful country. We came back home with awesome memories and friends back in Egypt. Excellent service from Egypt Magic Tours. I highly recommend them.

Excellent Day at the Pyramids
Tarik Halim was our guide for an unforgettable day at the Pyramids of Giza. Tarik as a masters in Egyptology and he was more informative than an average tour guide showing us more than you would expect and teaching us along the way. He made sure we weren't hassled by the touts and tricks (but helped get the cheesy camel ride we both wanted). It didnt end at Giza we also got to tour a cotton factory by choice after we finished. High quality day, higher quality tour, highest quality tour guide. Tarik is highly recommended.

My best trip.
I never thought that i would travel to Egypt, but i did, i went on the invitation of a friend and wasn't sure i would like it. I loved it. There was NEVER A MOMENT when I felt unsafe. All the people there were very friendly. I had Ossama for a guide and you couldn't ask for a better one!

The best tour i have doen it ever (EGYPT)
OSSAMA Sharaf spent 8 days with us on our memorable tour of Egypt. Ossama's knowledge of the ancient Egyptian history is amazing. He is always ready to show much flexibility and adjust the tours to suit what(...) we need and expect. Ossama is now our friend and he will be the first person we will call when we come back to Egypt.
