Lovli Local Tarek

Hi, I am Tarek, Tour Guide in Cairo. I’m passionate about sightseeing, history, culture, and food and photography. My Motto: Happy to show you the hidden gems of Cairo


What makes you a lovely Lovli Local?

I belong to the new generation of Egyptians who believe that Egypt is more than just the Pyramids and the Sphinx. I have a passion for discovering hidden corners in Egypt and unveiling the secrets of this fascinating, complex and diverse country. I have traveled extensively in Egypt and abroad and I love cultural crossings, great conversations and, of course, authentic, delicious food!

What makes your tours different to others?

My tours are created with the aim of sharing with you my favorite spots of Egypt, be it places, neighborhoods, cafes or restaurants. My tours are highly original and planned with a lot of care and attention to detail. These tours will be personalized so that you can experience the local culture and mingle with real Egyptians. I will tailor the tour according to your budget, needs and interests. I design and take private, personalized tours in Cairo, Alexandria and I also do Nile cruise ships in Luoxr and Aswan. I will be happy to book your hotel, cruise boat and domestic flights.

What do you like most/least about your city?

Cairo has a lot to live up to; the jewel of the orient, the city of one thousand minarets and the melting-pot of ancient and modern civilizations are just a few of its monikers.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
