On ABC News:

-----------------------------------------
In the lobby of the Egyptian Museum, Ahmed handed me his business card. Melek kelem, it read, in mirror-like Arabic script. This was no empty palindromic boast, I saw as soon as he started the ten-minute "preview' tour we'd arranged. Ahmed was indeed a Master of Speech, a Word Lord, even -- to stretch the effect into English -- an Emir of Rhyme. He had a dense and mesmerizing way of speaking, full of shifting rhythms and ridiculous puns. Ambling through the museum next to him felt more like jogging, trying to keep up with his ancient-Egyptian etymologies, mnemonics for hieroglyphics, and archaeology gossip.

Witty and enthusiastic.
Arguto e pieno d'entusiasmo.

Lonely Planet
-----------------------------------------
In Ahmed we found not only an amazing producer, but a great resource for all things Egypt. His offhand knowledge of Egyptian history, of
pharaohs and antiquities, of hieroglyphics and pyramids is astounding. He can quote ancient Egyptian texts from memory. In many ways he was our tour guide and history professor on top of everything else.

The CBS Evening News
--------------------------

He is also particularly good at turning dry facts into fascinating anecdotes and was often able to entertain and educate us with
interesting stories about Egypt’s history. He is obviously passionate about the country, its history and culture.

Helena Merriman

Broadcast Journalist
BBC World Service
--------------------------

His language skills, especially his knowledge of English, are absolutely first class and he has an ability to express himself in a manner that many native English speakers would find difficult to improve upon.
Michael Buchanan, Correspondent, BBC News

--------------------------
“You are a student of the finer point of the English language.”

Hugh Sykes, BBC, the World at One
--------------------------

My aim was to take a break with a cultural and historic character. And having Egyptologist and tour guide Ahmed Seddik as my companion made my adventure unforgettable.

Amira El-Naqeeb, Travel Writer
-------------------------------
The Digger Who Can Figure:
-------------------------------
"His name is Ahmed Seddik and he is the most delightful, smart and funny person you can imagine. He loves languages and speaks incredible English. He talked continuously without notes of any kind during our tours of the temples at Saqqara, the Pyramids and tombs in Giza, Islamic Cairo, and the City of the Dead--not just providing fascinating and encyclopedic information, both historic and modern,
but peppering his monologue with puns and alliteration."

Caroline Moore
-------------------------------------------
“Ahmed Seddik is the brightest Egyptian I have met since I came to Egypt. I have found his Egyptological knowledge prodigious.”

Professor Jerry Leach

-------------------------------------------
Ahmed Seddik worked with me as a discussant on the translation of Ahmad Faris al-Shidyaq’s monumental mid-nineteenth-century work al-Saq ‘ala l-saq (Leg over Leg) during 2012 and 2013, a work widely considered among the most linguistically challenging of Arabic texts in view of its use of little-known words, word-play and puns, and complex grammar. I reviewed and discussed in depth with Ahmed most of the cruxes of the text and benefited enormously from his in-put. His knowledge of Arabic grammar, verse, and the Quran is encyclopedic and his ability to untangle the contortions imposed from time to time on the language of the book by the constraints of verse and rhymed prose proved to be prodigious. Ahmed’s love of language in general and the Arabic language in particular made him the ideal partner in an enterprise of such a daunting nature. I can recommend him unreservedly to anyone involved in scholarly work involving the Arabic language arts.
