I love to show others the culture here – how people live, sharing traditional food, visiting markets, traditions, and of course all of the archaeological sites.

This place was beautiful! It was truly an oasis. When we arrived we were invited to breakfast and had tea. We relaxed in a hammock and remembered to take plenty of photos. After we relaxed we were able to hike up a sand dune and go sand boarding. I fell and laughed so many times. This was a once-in-lifetime experience! After my guests and I tired ourselves out from sand boarding we were served lunch with fresh BBQ and traditional Egyptian food. It was so delicious. We rode in the 4x4 Jeep later through the sand dunes and that was so much fun. Mido also took us to relax by a waterfall and we danced around and took videos and photos. This day was the highlight of my entire trip.

We were joined by Midos family as well - making the already interesting trip feel even more authentic and relaxed. Had a great time - even in the car rides to and from the oasis. Would recommend to anyone looking to escape the hastle of the city for a day.

This was an amazing amazing amazing day, highlight was the bbq and sand boarding. We had the time of our lives and took some great photos. Everyone we met was really lovely. We loved the Boudien camp! Smile at the people and you will receive a beautiful smile and a special moment with all. It really was an awesome experience. We are from Australia and it’s was nice seeing a different desert in Egypt. It was very different to ours. Also I know tipping is not a big thing in other places, but I really hope other people do tip. Put your predispositions aside. These people are hard workers and we should support countries and that are further developing. Plus their hospitality is just beautiful. We were very blessed to have met them all and appreciated Mido for putting this awesome tour together. We also had Mido for the Pyramids, Sphinx, and Museum tour on airbnb. It’s was also very good. We wish him all the best and hope to see him in Australia in the future!

This experience got off to a somewhat rocky start. The location and time were changed very late and we didn't have cell service. This caused some last-minute issues with finding our driver, which we were eventually able to do. My feedback to the tour company would be to make sure to establish a pick-up time and location at least 24 hours in advance. As someone taking this tour, make sure to get this information, especially if you will not have cell reception/wifi, as was the case with us. Once we were picked up, everything was great. The desert and oasis are lovely and very peaceful. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The food that was made for us was amazing. If you have a day to spend on this, it's highly recommended.

This was my sixth straight day of tours with Mohamed. With Mido and his company, I booked five tours before heading to Egypt and two additional while I was there. I put all of my eggs in one basket, not really sure exactly what I was getting myself into and hoping I would have a pleasant time throughout the week. My expectations were not only met, but far surpassed. Throughout the week, I had Mohamed as my tour guide and Gehad as our driver. Despite the chaotic and unexpected traffic of Cairo, they managed to always be punctual and ready to go. Mohamed and Gehad were both extremely friendly and immediately made me felt welcome and comfortable. I got to know Mohamed quite well and since then have become good friends. Mohamed studied Egyptology and is incredibly well-versed in Egyptian culture, throughout all time periods in history. He planned out our excursions impeccably, so they not only made better sense and allowed a cohesive storyline, but also avoided the hectic lines and crowds of tour buses and other guides. I felt I was getting a VIP tour all throughout Egypt and at many places that I anticipated to be saturated with tourists to be completely empty during our time there, and then becoming super crowded just as we set out to leave for our next destination. The timing for everything was beyond perfect! Throughout our tours, Mohamed also got to have a better understanding of my interests and taste. I am vegan/vegetarian, so Mohamed scouted out places that not only met my dietary needs, but also places he believed I would enjoy. There were several instances where Mohamed (with my approval) modified our tours because he believed I would enjoy doing/seeing something else better. This was so kind of him and his suggestions were always spectacular! It is clear Mohamed truly cares about his job and treats his clients as guests of his country. He loves his job and the rich culture Egypt has to offer. I cannot thank Mohamed and Gehad enough for making my time spent in Egypt one of the best experiences I have ever had. In only six days, I saw so much of the country. Mohamed took me to places I would not have been able to go to on my own, and some places I could have gone to on my own (ie, Egyptian Museum), but would not have retained even 99% of the information that he provided me during our tours. Many people throughout the world have preconceived notions about traveling to Egypt. What is shown on television and displayed in the media is not the real image of Egypt. The people are wonderful, the country is clean and most importantly, I felt 100% safe. The locals wanted to engage in conversation with me when they realized I am an American. Despite negative commentary from others, I have always wanted to travel to Egypt. I can now say first hand that the media and most people’s mindsets are wrong. I loved my time in Egypt and cannot wait to go back in the near future. I strongly recommend anyone considering visiting Egypt to do so and book your excursions with Mohamed. I encourage you to book as many with you can with him. You will make a connection and he will be able to understand your interests more than if you were to change guides/tour company’s multiple times throughout your trip. Once again— thank you, Mohamed! You made my trip to Egypt one of the best holidays I have ever had! I look forward to coming back!
