About Gamaal El Attar
I was born as a refugee in Sudan before displacements took me to more than 200 cities. Today, I am an engineer architect and a filmmaker in VRT (A Belgian TV) in architecture documentaries. I travel the world to collect the fragments of stories to recollect them into a new frame of understanding. This tour will grab these fragments together that you will see these cities in a relevant context to you.​

Jamal was very knowledgeable and interesting. He told lots of stories to bring the history and architecture to life. He peppered the stories with fun facts and trivia that added vivid context. He also made it fun by having the participants act out a story. I would highly recommend this tour.

Jamal is simply epic! An utterly charming man with a genius measure of sarcasm and warmth. He brought stories to life using willing tourists as key characters in history. We will also never think of Swans the same way again. We loved him.

Jimmy met us on time by Godiva. He has tailor-made our tour to fit the group interests. he wrote us a day before to tell us the weather and nessecery measures. The tour was informative in architecture, rich in history and sarcasm. Jimmy had reactions to what we say and do.. it was an educative stand up comedy - more or less-. I highly recommended.. it is my second time to visit Belgium and I hired Jimmy before in Bruges.

Gamal was very helpful and knowledgeable! Super friendly but very informative and we learned a lot in the amount of time. We got to see all of the famous sights within a few hours and learn so much about Bruges’ amazing history. A great tour all around!
