          Amazing local Food Tour in Cairo at night with great local guide
          I was not feeling well the evening we went on this tour, but our guide worked with us to bring some amazing local Egyptian foods to us to try. (It was Ramadan so the City was in a festive mood after dark, but we never felt unsafe. So although we did not walk as much as we would normally would have, our guide was very accommodating and friendly, and we felt well-served. I think this tour is a must for anyone who wants to experience how the "real" Egyptians eat and live. We learned about some foods (like Koshary and falafel) and various meat sandwiches that I will try to recreate at home. I can't rate this tour highly enough! Be adventurous and take this tour!!!

          Worth the extra money if you are really interested in learning about pharaonic history.
          This tour was exceptional in all ways. Mamdouh has a great depth of knowledge and a passion for history. He knew all the places to go and was able to show us some remarkable, less visited sites. The bus was comfortable and our driver an estute navigator of Cairo traffic.

          Amazing Cultural Experience with a warm and friendly team!
          Your Egypt Tours was AMAZING! They took care of us and made sure that we had a fabulous time! Our guides - Mamdouh in Cairo and Ash in Luxor and Aswan were great! Mamdouh esp was great with story telling and captured the attention of our three boys! Johnny our driver in Cairo was warm and friendly with a smile on his face all the time.. and Ahmed - who was helping us with our airport transfer and pick ups - was super helpful and friendly! Ali and Mona who helped us create the iternary did a fabulous job and took very good care of us! We were in Egypt for about 15 days - from Cairo, to sharm, the Nile cruise and back to Cairo / Alexandria. We did black and white desert with them and kids had a fabulous time! It was an adventure and we learnt a lot. They had lot of patience and were very attentive to our needs- esp out three boys - aged 7 and 10! Our boys celebrated their 10th bday there and they added a boat ride on the Nile to celebrate with a cake! It was awesome! We were initially hesitant as we were not sure how safe it was to travel there in Dec 2023/ Jan 2024 but it was perfect. They all took good care of us and made sure we had a wonderful time! I would highly recommend them for your trip to egypt!

          An experience you will never forget!!
          What an an amazing experience being able to see the pyramids and Sphinx. Menna our tour guide had so much information for us, which was so interesting. We also went to the Grand Egyptian Museum which had an incredible collection and watched an mesmerizing audiovisual exhibition of Tutankhamens life. We have to come back and stay for longer there is so much more to experience!

          Your Egypt Tours = peace of mind
          We were a family of 3 traveling with another family of 3 most of the 8 days in Egypt, plus we had another family of 3 with slightly different itinerary that had touch points with ours. Your Egypt Tours (YET) made a custom itinerary for us, with drivers and Egyptologists, and with cars in very good working condition. We spent 3.5 days in Cairo, a day in Aswan, a day in Abu Simbel and 2 days in Luxor. We took 3 internal flights and 2 road trips. Everything went very smoothly. We had great Egyptologists who took an interest in showing us around and captured some good group photos as well. There were hiccups with our travel, as usual with any trip. The highlight was that YET helped us out every time. Our luggage was late and YET made sure to get our luggage to us from the local courier the next day. We had trouble with one of the guides, and within one hour we had a new guide. We wanted to visit for off-the-beaten-path places, and our guide made it happen. A local show was canceled, YET made sure we had a great alternate experience. Guides were able to take us to the good places where locals eat, and had tons of patience while we shopped the markets of Khan-el-Khalili. Would highly recommend folks to travel with Your Egypt Tours!

          We Attempt to See Egypt All in One Trip
          We planned our trip 1 year ago. The actual travel happened at Easter of this year. The plan was to see all of Egypt in 1 trip, so the total trip was 23 days. We flew Lufthansa from Detroit to Frankfurt to Cairo. Everything went well and we absolutely loved flying Lufthansa. We had decided to hire a tour company for the first half or our trip, and they met us in the airport, got us to our hotel (right on the Nile). The next day we saw the Pyramids, the Sphinx, and the Egyptian Museum. We had a woman tour guide - Hend. She was wonderful. We rode the camels at the Pyramids, I recommend it, if only for the photos. The next day we flew south and started a 5 day Nile cruise. Each day starts with a different Egyptian temple. We had a small group led by a college educated guide. Yassir was with us for the whole cruise. You get back to the boat for lunch and the boat starts moving to the next stop. The scenery from the top deck was great. There is also a bar and a pool. We made friends with the bartender Sayed. I felt like I made a friend; he really watched out for us. It was greatly appreciated. The temples were fascinating. The Egyptian history makes our own American history seem very recent in comparison. The downside was that there was just sooo much history that my brain hurt. Far and away, the best day was at the Valley of the Kings. Being inside the ancient tombs with all the carvings and wall paintings was almost overwhelming. Everything is close enough to touch, in the States there would be bulletproof glass. When the Nile cruise was ended we flew back to Cairo. Cairo is roughly the same size as the city we are from, by square miles, but the population is 25 million. The traffic has very few rules, it seems, but it still moves pretty good. I never felt unsafe but we were always in tourist areas. For the second half of the trip we flew to Sharm el Sheikh. While there we stayed at a resort very similar to what you might find in Mexico or the Caribbean. I scuba dive on vacation and the diving in the Red Sea is on every diver's bucket list. The diving did not disappoint. I did all the local dives and had a really good time. The dive boats are pretty fancy and large. I would guess that we usually had around 75 divers. The equipment was fine, the dive masters are good. I was grouped with other english-speaking divers. Most divers were from Italy, with a lot of German, French, and English. Almost no Americans in Egypt. The only downside to the dive boats is that they are too large, too many divers. I prefer small boats, small groups. Large boats also mean a lot of wasted time. It took all day to dive in Egypt; in Cozumel you can be back to the bar and swimming pool by lunch. The resort staff really likes Americans; I guess we tip for service and most other countries do not. I bring a lot of small bills and tip in dollars. That makes me friends like Hamdy, our favorite waiter after dinner. Mohammed the bartender wade a really good Mojito. Even the guy that cleaned our room was super friendly and took care of us. Egypt's location relative to Sudan, Saudi Arabia, and Israel was not something that I thought about until I got there. Sudan is on their southern border and they are having a civil war. Saudi Arabia is visible across the water on clear days. Israel and the Gaza strip is literally up the road from our resort. I never felt any kind of danger. Nobody talked about politics or world events. Egypt really needs tourism, they don't have anything else, really. And so, they take good care of their tourists, they dont want any bad press. In summary, this was a ounce in a lifetime trip and I am not sorry that I went. Total cost was around $16,000. I an 64 this year. If I was a few years older, this trip might be too much. There is a lot of walking.

          Best foreign travel experience ever.
          Your Egypt Tours customized the perfect Egypt vacation for us. The personal attention of our guide, Ashraf, was five stars. We didn’t just sightsee, we were immersed in an experience that we will never forget. Highly recommend this agency and would trust them enough to send friends and family their way.

          3 night Nile cruise - Abu Sambal, Aswan and Luxor
          We had an amazing time visiting Egypt and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Your Egypt Tours. Mona and her team were very accommodating, helping us create our own bespoke itinerary for the highlights of Egypt. All communication was extremely prompt and organised from the outset, and Peter our Egyptologist guide was excellent - he is clearly passionate about Egyptian history and we felt extremely reassured that we were in good safe hands throughout the entire trip. The history and architecture in Egypt is truly remarkable, from the incredible Abu Simbel temple to a sunrise hot air balloon over Luxor, the team helped us create an absolutely memorable trip and we couldn't be more grateful! Thank you Your Egypt Tours. Really must emphasise how excellent our Egyptologist Peter was. Thanks again

          Excellent Tour Company
          We booked and planned a fantastic private 2 day excursion with Your Egypt Tours- Cairo and Luxor. Their professionalism and attention to detail planning the trip was great. Unfortunately, due to our last minute change in plans we were unable to go but will reschedule this great tour with YET at another time.

          Best tour company in Egypt!! (our opinion)
          Recently returned from a 10 day tour to Egypt with my Dad and it was AMAZING. Highly recommend checking a visit to Egypt off your bucket list!! Our wonderful experience in large part was thanks to Your Egypt Tours. From the moment we arrived at the Cairo airport and were greeted by Ahmed, to the moment Ahmed saw us back off at the airport, they gave us five star EXCEPTIONAL service and we were well cared for 100% of the time. Each day, we had a nice air conditioned private van, excellent driver (shout out to Johnny in Cairo and Ahmed in Luxor), and without doubt, some of THE BEST Egyptologists. Mamdouh gave us expert tours of Saqqara, Giza, the museums, the mosques, and old Cairo. He was funny, engaging, passionate about teaching us, and ensured we were well taken care of. Ashraf gave us incredible tours of Luxor, Aswan, and along our Nile Cruise stops. Ashraf is the MOST knowledgeable Egyptologist there is in all of Egypt, hands down. (Well, I didn't witness ALL the others in the country... but he has got to be tops, no doubt.) In addition to giving us excellent information about each site we visited, I daily asked him questions about every carving or painting or hieroglyph we came across, and 100% of the time, he knew the answer. I call him Mr. Google, because no matter what I asked, he had the answer. He was incredible. His potential is well beyond simply giving my Dad and myself tours... He should be teaching at University or be on documentaries. We felt extremely lucky to have him and I highly recommend you choose Your Egypt Tours for numerous reasons, top of which is Ash. Beyond that, Ash and Mamdouh are both genuinely great people. Mona is the person you communicate with in planning the trip, and in addition to the rave reviews I had read online about the company, my interactions with her were what sold me on booking with them. She was always prompt, professional, and extremely kind. The owner of the company checked in with us prior to the tour and mid-tour to make sure we were doing well. My Dad had to change his travel plans departing from Cairo, and their team was extremely kind in helping arrange a few more nights there and another transport to the airport. Tips: 1.) Initially I had booked a group tour with National Geographic, however could not find many reviews of them online and instead found outstanding reviews of this company and they offer private tours for less cost, so I changed. Our private tour allowed us to spend as much time as wanted in each site, and to adjust our itinerary as we pleased. It was perfect! 2.) Initially I was a bit worried that there was too much downtime in our itinerary, but it actually was needed! It was a bit exhausting visiting all the sites, so a bit of down time actually turned out nice. You can always add things while you are there if you are feeling spry/wanting more. 3.) Factor in a bit extra money for tips throughout the trip. There was quite a bit of tipping throughout, always at your own discretion and not obligatory. 4.) Egypt felt very safe and friendly throughout our stay. The tragic conflict between Hamas and Israel started while we were there on our tour, causing our family members back home to panic, but there in Egypt, we both felt very safe the entire time. I would encourage people to still go to Egypt (at least as things currently stand) as their country is safe and lovely. 5.) Prior to going, I read traveler blogs and reviews talking about aggressive salesmen constantly hounding foreigners. While yes, there are salespeople at all the tourist spots and they are desperate to make a living, my experience was that they were for the most part all respectful and good sports. Simply say "no thank you" (sometimes a few times) and it is all good. I also started giving in when realizing that often what they are selling costs only one dollar and it makes a huge difference to them. Overall, Your Egypt Tours was an OUTSTANDING company, I am extremely grateful for their kindness and exceptional service, and I would give them, and Egypt, my highest recommendation. The remains of Ancient Egypt are definitely worth seeing in person!

          Highly recommend Your Egypt Tours!
          My 2 friends and I spent 2 weeks on a tour arranged by Your Egypt Tours. We toured many sites in Cairo, Alexandria, Aswan and Upper Egypt, Luxor, and more. The company was superb - from the guides, drivers, incredible knowledge imparted to us all along, the good conversation and company they provided, and all the major and minor sites and activities. Part of our tour was a 4-day Nile cruise which was superb. All our accommodations were first-rate, and food they provided or recommended all wonderful. They were willing to work with us to customize the trip before arriving, and able to pivot when needed during the trip. I cannot say enough - well worth every minute!

          The experience of a lifetime!
          It may sound a cliche, but going to Egypt was a dream and "Your Egypt Tours" made it real. There is so much I can tell about my experience in Egypt and by using the services of "Your Egypt Tours", but I would like to keep it as short as possible with some information that could be useful for other travelers that could be trying to decide if visiting Egypt is worth the effort, time and money (short answer, it definitely is): 1. It is safe to go to Egypt, I want to stress this as much as possible, it is very safe to visit Egypt. Never while I was there I felt in danger or I saw something that would make me feel nervous or worried, nor for me or for other tourists on other tours even with other companies, take regular precautions, be informed, but it is definitely safe. 2. Book a tour like this to avoid scams or hustlers. While you read reviews or watch videos, you may get a wrong idea around this topic, yes it can be bad, they can be very insistent, the best way to avoid this problem is to have a team of professionals around you at all times, and believe me, this is "Your Egypt Tours", I never suffered from this problem, getting in and out from touristic places was smooth and fast. 3. Likely you will still want to do some shopping, I would say, you must do some. Once again you will be with a team of professionals, if you do not want to spend much on souvenirs, make sure you talk about this to your Egyptlogist guide, they take you to the right places. If what you want is quality (I was particularly happy with my cotton based stuff), once again, they will take you to the right places, but of course, prices will be higher. 4. I will probably recommend traveling on September, still some large crowds, but I can only assume that less people than in winter time, it is hot, but I would say it is manageable. That is all above general recommendations. Regarding "Your Egypt Tours", I do not want to mention the names of the Egyptologists guides that were with me in fear of missing someone, but it was a team with deep knowledge of Egypt, probably many of my questions where naive or came from total ignorance, but they answered everything I asked, they shared so much information and even provided suggestions for added activities to the tour originally booked and all of them were wonderful experiences. But this is a team, there are some people I never met that handled all the booking, which was nice and easy and they accommodated my requests easily and then others like the drivers that, once again, a team of professionals that know how to get from one place to another on a very comfortable transportation with AC, which is pretty much mandatory with the weather, so you just get worried about what is going to be exciting on the next visit. And if that is not all, there was always someone that got me from/to airports, such and incredible service and team. Egypt is full of wonders, of course you want to see the great pyramids up close, specially if you can do it at sunset, same as the Luxor temple, or a visit to a Nubian village if you have the time. And there is nothing that can prepare you to see the temples of Abu Simbel, if you can do this tour, trust "Your Egypt Tours" and enjoy a fantastic trip.

          Your Egypt Tours Made Our First Egypt Visit Amazing!
          It can be quite overwhelming trying to decide on a tour group thanks to the myriad options available, but after lots of research, I decided on YET and truly could not be happier with my experience! My friend and I only had two days in Egypt so we booked a full day in Cairo and a full day in Luxor - we reached out to YET after deciding on one of their travel packages since we wanted to add some additional activities like hot air balloon riding and a felucca ride. YET was a great communicator every step of the way and crafted a perfect itinerary for us - the famous spots, the airplane rides between cities, the van pick ups, etc. Everything was seamless and the YET members are there for you on WhatsApp every step of the way. As someone who meticulously likes to plan things, I was so impressed and so appreciated knowing we were in good hands. Our tour guides (Ash and Mamdouh) were also spectacular! They relayed all the rich history and facts we were looking for, while also informing us on what to keep our eyes out for in the touristy spots they are not allowed to go into (to minimize crowds). Truly, each of them went above and beyond and made the trip as fantastic as it was. I think it's also important to state how SAFE my friend and I felt the entire time - as two solo female travelers we never felt uncomfortable and that's in large part due to MET and how they operate. Not only were we with our guides the entire time, but our luggage (which was in the van with us all day) was safely guarded by the drivers who never leave the vehicle and are always just a stone's throw away to take us to our next destination. I really can't say enough good things about Your Egypt Tours!! As a world traveler, they are one of the best tour groups I have ever come across! I know it can be overwhelming to resarch and read a bunch of reviews, but trust when I say YET is 100% worth it!

          Sunset Camel Ride is a Must Do in Cairo
          Fantastic experience on the Sunset Camel Ride. I thought we were going in a group but turns out it was just my husband and I. Hatem our guide was absolutely amazing and so was our car driver. The camel guys were great! We sat and watched the sun set over the pyramids. Best experience and highly recommend Your Egypt Tours ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

        Booked a private tour with YET with Mona via the Internet. Excellent booking process, safe payment with Credit Card and superb service on the day. Competent safe driver, knowledgeable and helpful guide Mohamed made the day trip a memorable experience. As a single woman I felt perfectly safe and all Egyptians are warm, welcoming and genuinely pleased to see tourists. Never did I feel threatened in any way, safety precautions are in place at all major attractions and Egypt is certainly a safe tourist destination once again.
