About me

I was born in Al-Darb Al-Ahmar Historic District, Islamic Cairo in 1982.That time I used to see Islamic Cairo monuments such as Al-Dhahabi house, Fakahani mosque, Al-Ghuri mosque, Abul Dhahab mosque, Al-Azhar mosque, in addition to Al-Mokattam hills, from the roof-top of our house at Al-Hammam alleyway in Khoush-Kadam Street. 

Because of the archaeologic-touristic atmosphere of that geographical area I became a great guide who used to lead expeditions up and down the main street of Islamic Cairo, "Al-muiz street", the southern part of it in particular. My parents were the ones who made the effort to teach me the passion and love of languages, history and geography of my country and this later helped me a lot to guide foreigners around the Islamic Cairo's hidden treasures. 

When I was 15, I started climbing the minarets of the archaeological mosques 

in Cairo. I enjoyed the view from the top, a bird's-eye-view of the city.It has been 18 years now that I have been climbing as a full tour guide. I have lead hundreds of people on tours around the local handicraft areas in Al Darb Al Ahmar and Al Gamaleyya historical districts. I have led tours to the pyramids of Giza and Sphinx, Saqqara, the Egyptian museum, the Coptic Cairo… etc, I have guided hundreds of people around almost every corner of Islamic Cairo, especially the hidden, unknown and neglected treasures inside the medieval alleyways.I had worked as a tour guide at the Guest-Relations Dept.of Al-Azhar park and I also had worked as a Circulation Assistant at the American University in Cairo’s Main library. 

I also had served as an interpreter for famous international writers and journalists together with magazine contributors around the world during the time of the Egyptian revolution 2[sensitive content].Such as, National Geographic Washington, the Swedish Radio, Il Fatto Quotidiano; among others.I have done a great job when I had worked as Library Assistant at the Tahrir Library (The American University in Cairo) and therein I proved helpful and dedicated when I provided high quality customer satisfaction.I am always customer-oriented and centered all my efforts to satisfy library patrons through helping them  find books that they needed.I also drove several golf car tours and lead several walking tours around Al-Azhar Park and its surroundings, as well as Al-Muizz Li-Deen Allah Street.  

I also taught English as a Second Language too, and sometimes I taught Arabic as a foreign Language as well.I have graduated from Ain Shams University, Faculty of Arts, School of Tour Guiding.And before that I had graduated from a two-year course in Tourism and Hospitality with grade, Excellent (A ).And recently I have  worked for a short while with Vodafone UK, Technical Support outsourcing call center, right after I resigned from AUC library. It was considered as a transitional period of time between leaving a job and fulfilling my dream job, "successful tour guiding career".My passion is to help people make their dreams come true.I think that people who would like to take a holiday should make themselves aware of the place and have a passion to learn from their guides.Similarly, travellers who wish to visit Cairo should completely acquaint themselves with all the information they need about the place before undertaking the visit.

I thank tourHQ for their services where they help people makes their choices; where they want to go, what type of guide is best for them, and ensure that guides meet travellers' needs in a good manner.Have a great time in Egypt.
