Last October we went with a group of friends and Adel to Fayyoum and visited the town, the Pyramids of Meidum and Hawwara before we had lunch in a small restaurant closeby the lake. Adel was a competent, patient and very knowledgable guide and I can warmly recommend him. I have often traveled to Egypt before and did a lot of guiding by myself but did not feel secure about Fayyoum since it has been ages since I went there last time. Therefore, I booked a tour with him and it was a great success. Some of my group members also visited Saqqara and Gizah with him and were equally happy about his service. We will travel with him again in the future
