Rasha is our guide in Cairo. She trained in antiquities for four years and speaks perfect English. She enjoys talking to people around Cairo “Especially the people who really want to know about where they are going and not just to get a picture”, as she says. We have worked together for six years now so Rasha has a good idea of what I like to show our guests in Cairo and… “Mr Duncan, I show them somewhere different, no problem”.
When in the Khala Khalili, Rasha lets you go around the touristy part on your own, this is because she does not want you to think she is taking a commission from any one and, you don’t need her skills here, they all speak English and it is only you that can help you with your haggling skills. She is the guide, not your Mum!
If you like the thought of having Rasha show you around Cairo, the Pyramids, museum and the Khala Khalili, let us know.
