    I have been bringing groups to Egypt for several years now and for the past few times have engaged the services of Osama as Tour Guide travelling from Aswan through to Abydos and back to Luxor. Osama is very compatible to work with and does an excellent, contentiousness job of taking good care of the group and accommodating my wishes as group leader. All my tour groups have been happy to have him as their tour guide.
