      Best Egyptology guide by the Nile river
      My husband, my son and I had the immense pleasure and honour of having Dr Ashraf as our Egyptology guide during a 4-day Nile cruise package organized thorough Gat tours. Dr Ashraf is a true professional, an Egyptology expert. We thoroughly enjoyed his lectures. We learnt so much despite a good read beforehand. It's so nice to now be able to recognise some hieroglyphs ! Also, have a better overview understanding of Ancient Egypt history and Deities. Dr Ashraf is also a wonderful person, kind, restpectful, humble, accommodating, with great time management. He is passionate, clear and succinct in his explanations. Dr Ashraf helped make our Egyptian holiday complete and fall in love with his wonderful country and people, old and current. Thank you so much my friend. With gratitude and respect, Carmen and family

      Cairo and Nile Cruise, April 2024
      Me and my husband booked a holiday to Egypt with Gat Tours between 01.04.24 and 12.04.24. We visited Cairo first, on 02.04.24, our guide was Amir, who was fantastic and we really recommend him. He was really professional and friendly, and let us visit every site with calm. Also all his explainations were well paced. He has a lot of knowledge and knew everything about Egyptian culture. We had a great time with him at the Pyramids, and he explained many things to us. We also visited Saqqara and Menphis on the same day and, on our last day (11.04.24), he took us to see the Egyptian museum, Coptic Cairo and the Citadel. While visiting the pyramids, he took us to a nice place where we could take great pictures and buy souvenirs. He also took us to a shop where we could buy papyus and in another shop where we could buy some cartouches with our names in hieroglyphics on them. We also appreciated the fact he could speak an excellent Italian (our first language) and communications was so much easier. Then we went for a Nile Cruise between 03.04.24 and 10.04.24. Our guide during these days was Dr Ashraf. He was amazing! We really recommend him. We visited lots of temples: Kom Ombo, Luxor Temple, Karnak, Valley of the Kings, Abu Simbel and many others. He was always patient with us, let us take many pictures, explained to us lots of things about the places we visited and gave us plenty of information. He is a person with a great culture who has studied the history of Egypt and knows everything. He had been a guide for years. He was also kind and became like a friend, making our holiday fantastic! It was a pleasure to meet him! Our ship was Al Kahila, all the staff there was so kind and friendly! It was such a pleasure to spend 7 nights with so many lovely people! We loved spending time on the deck looking at the landscape, and having a chat with the wonderful people who work on the ship. We will miss them a lot! In general, it was a great experience and all the staff from Gat Tours was amazing! Dina, the tour operator who organised this holiday, was great, kind and always available. Mina helped us a lot at the airport. We will miss Egypt and all the lovely people we met a lot! Thank you Marco & Lavinia

      An Egypt trip to remember
      We just had an amazing and historic trip in Egypt with our friends for 16 days. From the moment we arrived, to the day we left, we were looked after by GAT Tours. Upon arrival at the airport, the wonderful Mr. Osama picked us up . Mr. Osama was there for us with a smile and important information. No detail was too small, or too big for him not to look after. Cannot begin to tell you how special our dedicated drivers were. Always around the corner. Ready to pick us up within minutes of being texted. Our first day started with Mrs. Manar, with her information and smiles for the whole day. Mrs. Manor explained everything we needed to know about the Giza pyramids and Memphis. Also, a great photographer! So, very special and knowledgeable. When one travels with Gat Tours, one has a qualified Egyptologist with you at all times. Then we were very lucky to get Mr. Sayed as our tour guide for the rest of the trip. I’m sure they’re all very talented and informative, but we felt we had hit the jackpot with Mr. Sayed. We feel that what he knew, resulted in one of the most fabulous historic tours we’ve ever had. Not only do we consider Mr. Sayed a friend, we hope to be lucky enough see him on our next trip. We also want to thank Mr. Sayed for teaching my husband, with all his patience, many details of the hieroglyphics. We chose the tour that involved two days in Cairo, Nile Cruise, many excursions and temples…out of this world! We also had five days at the Red Sea at the Movenpick El Qusir at the end of our tour. Highly recommend the Movenpic Hotel at the end. Beautiful rooms over looking the ocean as well as staff and food were all excellent! Even involved a camel ride! Then it was back to Cairo for two nights to go to one of the most famous museums in the world! Only partially open, but we did get to see the mummies and many authentic statues. Thank you Gat Tours for making our 50th anniversary so special!

      Egypt in it's Glory!
      Amazing private tour for 2 senior couples. We visited the mosques and pyramids of Cairo - flew to Luxor for a 4 day River Nile cruise visiting the temples of Luxor/Edfu/Aswan and going to a Nubian Village then ending the trip at the Red Sea in Quseir. Fabulous itinerary - incredible Guide & wonderful GAT Representative ensuring all our needs were met. Excellent accommodations right through. GAT is a 5 star Company which we highly recommend. This is our 2nd time and we are still impressed by the quality of their services.

      Unforgettable Egypt Adventure
      My wife and I had the opportunity to visit Egypt on Nov 29-30, 2023 during a recent cruise around the Mediterranean, and GAT Tours came highly recommended; my parents toured the Pyramids and the Valley of the Kings with them in 2004, and then my sister and brother in-law in 2012 on a Pyramids tour and Nile cruise. Having never been to Egypt, and knowing that a good guide makes all the difference, we gave GAT Tours the go ahead to take us on a whirlwind 2 day, bucket-list private tour. Long story short, we could not have had a better time. Our itinerary included a tour of the Pyramids of Giza and Sphinx, followed by dinner at a restaurant across from the Great Pyramid. We saw the evening Pyramid light show in English and spent the night in Cairo at the Sofitel Hotel overlooking the Nile. The next day we were given a private tour of the Egyptian Museum by an Egyptologist, and afterwards had an unforgettable experience at the Mohammed Ali Alabaster Mosque. GAT Tours is your friend in Egypt; they will welcome your first steps, and see you off as you leave. They are with you every step of the way and will take care of everything, including booking reservations, acquiring tickets, and coordinating all meals and transportation. Everyone at GAT Tours is committed to your dream vacation, from Mr. Ahmed the coordinator, to Mr. Osama our first contact in Alexandria, to our Egyptologist guide for most of tour Mrs. Manar, to our Cairo guide a different Mr. Ahmed, and to our driver Mr. Mustafa, each GAT Tour representative is a gracious host and a pleasure to meet, and is the reason why my wife and I had an amazing time in Egypt. They treated us like family and went above and beyond to ensure our time in Egypt was perfect. We were greeted cheerfully in Alexandria by Mr. Osama, who happened to be 9 hours early. Our ship had skipped the prior 2 ports, so he came early just in case we were ahead of schedule. He also conveniently offers free currency exchange, ie. we used the exchange rate off google. We met dear Mrs. Manar, our Egytologist guide who held our hand for most of the journey. She was warm, passionate, and a wealth of information; our Egypt adventure would not have been the same without her. And she came to see us off at a tearful farewell in Alexandria despite living in Cairo, 3 hours away. The evening and Pyramids light show was fun thanks to our friendly escort Mr. Ahmed, who also saw us to our room helping us with everything that night including check-in. And we would be remiss not to mention our wonderful driver Mr. Mustafa, who spoke little English but was always cheery and drove us safely to each destination. The positive experiences my family had from GAT Tours since 2004, a span of 19 years, is a testament to this company’s commitment to hospitality. My wife and I would like to thank each and every GAT Tour representative for showing us your wonderful country, teaching your fascinating history, and meeting your beautiful people, the best time of cruise was spent in Egypt! Thank you GAT Tours from Vancouver, Canada 🙂

      Will recommend to family and friends
      GATTOURS is fully recommended, not only for the day tours but for the whole stay. We have booked 10 days between el cairo and Luxor Nile cruise to Aswan, and the experience has been absolutely remarkable: professionalism, kindness, attention to every detail, planning of every movement end-to-end, humanity. They honour their country and they provide a great service in line with the greatness of ancient Egypt

      Incredile trip to Egypt and Jordan
      My wife and I had an amazing tour to wonderful sites in Egypt and Jordan. Our sincere gratitude to Mr. Ahmed for arranging our private, customized trip to both countries with incredible Hotel stays, travel vehicles, extremely friendly drivers, tour guides. We truly enjoyed interacting with wonderful local people and their great hospitality. We had memorable visits to sites in Cairo, Giza, Nile cruise, Luxor, Aswan and Alexandria. Our driver Mr. Ahmed was simply best. Our esteemed tour guides, Ms. Asmee in Giza, Cairo and Alexandria Mr. Abdul on the Nile cruise and visits in Luxor, Aswan in Egypt and our driver Mr. Tayseer in Jordan along with tour guides Mr. Mohamed(s) in Wadi Rum, Jaresh, Gadar were just out-standing - very knowledgeable, patient and very friendly. We recommend anyone visiting Egypt and Jordan to request them for the trips to Egypt and Jordan. We felt very safe and secure throughout travel and stay in Egypt and Jordan (driving along the Israeli border !) during our visit last week in the midst of the Gaza-Israel war.

      Mind blowing trip to Egypt and the best of Pyramids
      My husband and I booked tour with Mr Ahmed from the GATT tour for 14 days covering Egypt and Jordan after recommended by a friend. We booked the tour a few months before and whenever we had any query Mr Ahmed always replied immediately and fed us with all information required. From point to point, beginning from the airport and till the end, during the 8 days in Egypt, then in Jordan we were surrounded by lovely people who shared lots of information and made the trip the best of all countries we have been. Thanks A million to Mr Ahmed, Mr Osama, Ms Armani (our tour guide with wealth of knowledge) and our driver (Mr Mahmood) In Egypt. The places we visited, the food and the people we met during the trip were all wonderful. Thanking you from our heart. Mr Ahmed, hope to see more of neighbouring countries through GATT tour (Morrocco, Greece and Turkey) soon.

      GAT Tours have been seamless and professional in the execution of our 10 day Egypt Trip. Whisked through Cairo on arrival (and departure) by the Abdul, you felt welcomed and in safe hands immediately. Transferred over to our guide in Cairo and Alexandria, Egyptologist Minar who was an absolute delight and pleasure to have around, was a world of knowledge. Mind blowing information and facts, we jam packed a huge amount in 4 nights in Cairo. Mr Tolbar, our driver in Cairo/Alexandria, a true gentleman and drove so cautiously and safely. Thank you Abdul, Minar and Tolbar. We made lifetime memories. Upon arrival in Aswan, we were welcomed again by GAT Egyptologist Zac. He was so welcoming and outstanding knowledge and passion for Egypt and has a great sense of humour. It was such a pleasure to have Zac as our guide while cruising along the Nile and discovering mind blowing temples, tombs and history. Again, we were seamlessly transferred to Hurghada, met by Simon in Luxor and driven by Karim safely to our destination. Met in Hurgatha by GAT Representative Mohammad who ensured we were settled in Hurgatha. Lastly, Dina - a huge thank you for arranging all this for us while we were on the other side of the globe(Australia). None would be possible without the constant contact and always accommodating changes and responding to emails quickly. We will 200% confidently recommend GAT tours to any potential Egypt traveller. An extremely professional, local company and we don’t think we could have chosen better.Thanks for an extraordinary trip.

      Amazing Egyptian Odyssey
      Dr. Ashraf, deputed by GAT Tours in Egypt, is an exceptional guide who not only displayed an immense passion for Egyptian history, culture, arts, and divinity but also delved into the intricacies of hieroglyphics, making it accessible and captivating for us. His articulate and captivating narration brought to life the grandeur of the world-renowned temples of Karnak, Luxor, the Valley of the Kings, Edfu, Kom Ombo, Abu Simbel, and Philae. Moreover, his ability to highlight the nuances of Egyptian life, combined with the enthralling sound and light show at Karnak, further enriched our experience. Dr. Ashraf's attentive guidance and support throughout the journey made the entire trip feel personalized, and his warmth and amiable nature transformed our professional relationship into a genuine friendship. We wish him the very best in his life and career always. Thank you Dr Ashraf...
