About Us

Hi there, welcome to the Local’s Guide to Egypt!


As the name suggests, we’re a group of local Egyptians who were born and raised in Cairo, Egypt. We’re not official tour guides or anything like that, just normal people who love to travel and explore (probably like you) and really want to share our local knowledge of Egypt in an honest and authentic kind of way.


So we created our Egypt travel website and blog for just that -- it’s full of city guides, itineraries, recommendations, packing lists and tips and tricks for all things Egypt.

Whether you're a first time visitor to Egypt, an expat or an Egyptian local like us looking for new experiences, we’re not going to sell you any kind of fake promotional BS. We promise to always keep it real in our articles and to help you set realistic expectations.


The website is still a baby but we’re slowly but surely beefing it up. Our to-do writing list is only a million pages long.


We hope you find our content helpful, and most of all, we hope you have an awesome time in Egypt, whether now or some sparkly day in the far-off future.
