Egypt & The Nile - Contacting Sheriff?

Hi folks. My departure date for Egypt & The Nile is December 5, 2015. Thanks to the odd flight times for Cairo, I'm getting into Cairo a full day before the official departure date/time. I've read reviews that the local tour guide, Sheriff, will sometimes do another little tour of local places the last day of the tour. I'm hoping to get into contact with Sheriff in hopes that he would be able to meet me before the official start of the tour (if possible) as I'll be leaving around midnight the last day of tour. Any help would be greatly appreciated (as I don't think it would be wise to wander around Cairo solo). I wasn't sure if keeps in contact with travelers after departure, but if anyone has an email or something, that'd be great!
