          The Two of Us Had Our Eyes Open to the Beauty of Egypt
          We (my spouse and I) got a recommendation to use Look At Egypt Tours, which my friends had used for their trip a few months before. The communications with the company were almost seamless, though I had one email that remained unanswered right before our flights. All our guides, Hannah, Wahid, Mohammed and our driver Abrahim were very reliable and enjoyable. There was one time when a miscommunication between us and one of the guides caused a little tension, but that was easily solved. The Nile cruise was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. What a thrill to be on the river with the lush green of the shore and the desert mountains in the distance. As Americans, we are used to tipping for service, and I would recommend people who haven't been to Egypt get an idea who to tip, when, and how much. The exchange rate is very favorable right now, which is an added plus. Also, driving in Cairo is not for the faint of heart. Don't plan on renting a car there. I am so glad we made the trip. Thank you, Look At Egypt Tours.

          If you are planning a trip to Egypt this is the company you should choose. I booked the tour myself through Yasmine via what's app and she was great with her communication. The tour manager Walid was very professional and his communication was great. Boudi our driver was safe and professional and a nice guy. We had 3 guides Randa, Azza, and Sally. Ask for these guides as they are the best and very knowledgeable qualified historians. Do not hesitate to book with this company as we made memories that will last forever.

          Great Tour
          Very nice and interesting tour. The rep. Mr. Mahmoud Hefny looked after us excellently. The two guides (Mr. Fayed and Mr. Awman) were also very good. It's a shame the Nile cruise only lasted 1 night. We then spent two days in the port of Luxor. But definitely a recommended trip.

          A family holiday worth remembering -8 days in beautiful Egypt
          Egypt was special. We loved the history, the temples and the ruins in Abu Simbel, everything in Luxor be it the temples or the Valley of the Kings, the pyramids in Giza and the tour of the old town with the church and the synagogue in Cairo. This was only possible because of the impeccable service and hospitality provided by Look at Egypt team. From Niveen’s arrangement and itinerary, the pick up at the Cairo airport till being dropped back. Walid, Mohamed Salah and Ayman were very attentive and took care of us well. The only thing we felt could have been better is the hotel in Aswan.

          Good company to rely on
          Egypt tour has been a bucket list item for my wife. As soon as we arrived at airport before immigration, "M" greeted us and professionally and friendly led us to the hotel and overlooked our entire tour. Fayed was the guide next days for Pyramid and Cairo tours. He was incredibly knowledgeable and wise to lead the tour. I appreciated their professionalism and accountability, although I had a little problem with the guide for Nile cruise starting in Luxor and with painful sad feelings about the economic/social/environmental struggles in Egyptian people.

          A taste of Egypt - Royal tour 10 day
          1st timers to Egypt, choose LookatEgypt tours due to consistently high ratings and they overall proved to be a very good,capable & efficient company that showed us the wonders of Egypt on a ten day package. Good communication before and throughout the trip keeping us fully updated and answering any of our questions. Excellent choice of hotel Cairo central (Fairmont) and Nile cruise boat (Amwaj). Transportation in small personal mini vans with good safe drivers (important in Cairo!) and two excellent guides in Cairo and Luxor respectively. We learnt so much from them, not just history but everyday culture and some modern politics. Nothing was too much trouble and I'm sure we (happily) spent far too long at some sights, I could have spent a week at Karnak alone!! There were the inevitable 'lets get the tourists shopping' stops along the way but if the guides get some kickback from our visit so be it. However, we were offered a number of extra trips usually the day before for which we had no prior warning and hadn't considered. In one instance we were driven from ATM to ATM trying to get cash for these extras as a credit card wouldn't be accepted. We obviously arrived in country with too little cash - if we had known earlier about the extras we would have arrived with pockets stuffed full of $$$$$ and done more in free slots. We also underestimated the tipping culture, everybody but everybody gets a cut of the action!! 1 st timers no more. We learn! But, we saw 'wonderful things' and had a fantastic experience ticking off so many epic, dreamed of sights. We learned to embrace the culture - just roll with it and the language. The company provide us with that opportunity and despite some minor misgivings they really did deliver. Shukran.

          I can not write the words eloquently enough to express how this company took care of every need. I am an international flight attendant for a major airline. Service is what I have been apart of for 40 years. “M” greeted us as soon as we got off our flight and took incredible care of walking us thru Visa process, transportation, sincerely serving my husband and myself. Randa, with 19 years as an Egyptologist, beautifully walked us thru History. Without her, we would have been clueless….hopelessly clueless. I would give 6⭐️’s

          Egypt is Amazing!
          Our trip started with a 4-night/3-day Nile cruise on the ship Historia, between Luxor and Aswan, stopping at several temples and the valley of the kings along the way. We then spent 2-nights and 2-days in Cairo touring the pyramids, the Egyptian Museum, Coptic Cairo & Khan EL Khalili Bazaar. We had an incredible time and learned so much! Our guides Remon Michel, Mohamed Said, and Mohamed Salah were very knowledgable and friendly. Our tour manager, Mahmoud Hafny, was great. Our only regret is we didn't stay longer. We'd definitely recommend Look at Egypt!

          Highly recommend for a stress free Egypt experience
          Navigating Egypt can sound scary reading reviews of travelers that have gone and not prepared. Mahmoud Hafny, Yasmeen and their team took that stress away and facilitated an experience that we are so glad we did. Egypt with its people and its sights are incredible and should be on any travelers bucket list. Special shout out to our tour guides Mohamed Shata, Mohamed Farah and our driver Amr. They spent so much time with us and made our experience in Egypt an excellent one. The tour was well organized and our every need taken care of. We had some extra requests like bag storage which their team graciously made easy for us. One of our hotels didn’t book the requested room type for us and despite the hotel being full Mahmoud worked so hard to get us the right rooms and made it happen in the end. There was no magic that they could not make happen for us. We really felt like we could ask them anything and they had a solution for everything. Trying to navigate Egypt without them would have been much more difficult. We came for the ancient sights which are awe-inspiring and truly one of a kind. But we will leave with memories of so much more than that. The mysteries of a civilization 5000 years old. The incredible flavours of the food. And of course, Egyptian hospitality and the warmth of its people. Highly recommend to anyone considering going!

        It has been a burning desire of mine to go to Egypt since I was a child! It was a dream come true to finally get to encounter the ancient tombs and temples.  In addition to that, the food was spectacular and the people were so kind and friendly. Almost everyone spoke excellent English! Our Egyptologist, Mohamed Sheta, was so knowledgeable and funny and patient.  It was truly a privilege and joy to experience his country with him!  Ahmed Abd Al Fatah and Mahmoud Hafney were with us on tour as well and took care of the details so everything was efficient and seamless.  We felt very well cared for.  The security guards were fantastic too!  Very professional.  At one point, I got separated from the group and I whatsapped Mohamed and he sent the security guard for me. The guard located me and returned me to the group within 5 minutes!  I felt very safe!!

        I loved every single little thing about the tour, but some of the highlights for me were:
        The Great Pyramids and the Sphinx in Cairo
        The Nubian Village in Aswan
        The hot air balloon ride over Luxor
        And King Tut's mask and all the artifacts that were found in his tomb were jaw-droppingly beautiful!

        If you want to have a safe, fun, educational, thorough trip of a lifetime in Egypt, travel with LOOK AT EGYPT TOURS. 😍✈🌏

        Look at Egypt Tours exceeded our expectations. Anything you asked for, anything you needed, they made happen! Zizo in Cairo and Mu on the Nile River Cruise really made our trip perfect. Everything was private and we always felt safe! We learned so much history and several stories from the guides you wouldn’t know from guide books. In addition to all of the ancient history we saw and learned, we were able to dive into the culture through food, shopping, and over coffee with incredible conversation with new friends. Look at Egypt tours is DEFINITELY the tour company y you want to use while in Egypt!

        Egypt 🇪🇬 has been on my bucket list for a long time. And luckily I found Look at Egypt Tours. They took care of everything-tours, hotels, cruise , transportation! It was amazing. Visited Cairo, Nile cruise from Luxor to Edfu to Komombo to Aswan. Saw Pyramids, Temples, and Tombs. Rode camels and hot air balloons. Both of our tour guides were great hosts - Ahmed Farahat for all the sites in Cairo and Ayman Morgan for the sites along the Nile Cruise. We learned a ton and loved listening to their enthusiasm as they shared so much about the ancient Egyptian world. I’d definitely recommend Look at Egypt Tours!

        We traveled with Traveldiscounters to Egypt. Our visit included Cairo then a 4 day cruise down the Nile. It was amazing to see those sights you read about for years. Our staff (particularly Sahar and Amro) were delightful and Blue Sky got us safely from place to place. My advice would be to schedule that trip to Egypt you have always dreamed about. There is more to see than you imagined and the people are most hospitable.

        I booked a 10 day tour with Look At Egypt Tours and it was a great experience. Ahmed (the owner) is very professional and organized. He kept in contact with me throughout the tour. His itineraries are very detailed and filled with interesting facts about all the places visited. Ahmed even called his tour guides on a daily basis to make sure everything was running smoothly. My airport transfer and tour guides were so friendly and helpful. Ali (airport transfer) met me at the airport and made sure I had everything I needed for immigration and hotel checkin. Mostafa (Cairo tour guide) showed some cool and interesting places in the big city. He has quite the sense of humor and we did our fair share of laughing each day on the trip. Aboudy (Nile Cruise tour guide in Luxor/Aswan) educated me on the true history, culture and people of upper/lower Egypt. I really learned a lot from him and enjoyed reading some of his grandfathers published books. I highly recommend anyone who is interested in in visiting Egypt to book a tour with Look At Egypt Tours. My first trip to Egypt was wonderful and I enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you Ahmed, Ali, Mostafa and Aboudy for all your help and friendship.

        Look At Egypt Tours was a dream company to travel with, they exceeded our expectations and made every moment of the trip enjoyable and hassle free. Our guide Noha in Cairo and Muhammed on the cruise were very professional and helpful with renting vehicles, booking hotels and the Nile cruise was amazing! We can’t wait to travel with them again!

        There are places in the world that defy explanation without having actually visited them. Egypt is one of those places. The astonishing amount of history and culture to absorb is beyond anything you think you know, the food is delightful and the people are eager to help, to show you their country and to teach you all they know.

        BUT - to absorb all you can and to get the most of your time in Egypt, a guide is essential and Look at Egypt Tours is the ultimate guide to Egypt and all its wonders. Our family ranged from 13 - 78 and our trip was exquisitely planned and organized with activities and attractions that ensured that we were all thrilled with our trip. At every site we visited, our guides Fayed and Russell astounded us with their depth of knowledge and their ability to customize the amount and style of information and adventure which was offered.
        Do yourself a favour ... book your tour to Egypt and book it with Look at Egypt Tours.
