I have finally made arrangement with the tour guide based on number of attendance so far
The tour will be for 3 hours long and will be lead by the famous guide Ahmed Seddik

The tour will be mainly in English but he is multilingual if needed as he speak several languages he says

It will be on Saturday the 9th of September at 9a.m ( Protected content ) infront of Protected content

The price initially was 200EGP (locals) & 15USD (Foreigners), but was finally able to negotiate it to have 50% discount since we are a group and first timers, and foreigners will pay same as locals this time, so it's 100EGP for whomever
This is only for this time, any other time will be higher he mentioned
And he was strict about pre-payment through Vodafone Cash or PayPal but was convinced for this time only to be payment on-spot, so you will pay 100EGP at time of event, but you have to register with him through whatsapp: Protected content your Name/email/Number before the event, it's a must and it close at the 8th, and you are welcome to bring with you anyone wish to join as long as you register as well

He even mentioned you can give him a call and he can tell you a brief of what you are going to expect, he is very helpful & friendly, just call him after the 6th as he is in Greece now or whatsapp at anytime

I'm supposed to come to Cairo this week but not confirmed, so not sure if I will be able to attend this time, I will try my best, but no worries Ahmed Seddik (tour guide) mentioned that he will be the actual organizer and he will take over from now as he is the guide
