Egyptian Sidekick is many things. It is a blog, a non-profit organization, a tour organizer, and a network for alternative travel. Above all, Egyptian Sidekick is a community of English-speaking Egyptian university students, local guides and their international friends, working to revolutionize travel to Egypt. At Egyptian Sidekick, we pride ourselves on facilitating sightseeing and cultural experiences in-and-around Cairo, Alexandria, Luxor, and Aswan, providing maximum flexibility for all travelers at a low, flat daily rate. The Motto of our fair-tourism project is: Complete Supervision, Unlimited Travel, Unlimited Sightseeing, and 24-Hour Availability. These four points are understood literally, and are the terms of service with Egyptian Sidekick.
