    A Perfect Custom Trip
    To clarify, I didn't do the 5-day tour above; instead, Your Egypt Tours and I designed a custom itinerary to Saqqara, Dashur, the Faiyum, Alexandria, and Tanis. The whole experience was perfect, mostly due to my wonderful guide Mamdouh Ismail. Mamdouh was knowledgeable, warm, friendly, and extremely helpful - often going above and beyond to make sure that I had the experience that I wanted. I recommend both Mamdouh and Your Egypt Tours very highly, you are certain to have a great time!

    Fabulous Small Group Tour
    Our trip to Egypt was wonderful thanks to the amazing people at Your Egyptian Tours. From our very first communication with Mona (our awesome Customer Service Rep!), throughout all of our many follow-up communications and up to the final booking process, we were impressed with their thoroughness to details, helpful and prompt replies, accommodation of our special requests and professionalism on all levels. Once in Egypt, we were met with the same level of excellent service by the company representatives, skilled drivers (especially in the crazy Cairo traffic!) and extremely knowledgeable Egyptololgist guides. The St. Regis Hotel in Cairo was total luxury, and although the dahibayia boat on the Nile wasn't quite a 5-star vessel, it was very charming, extremely clean and comfortable, and our crew was exceptional in every way. Our main highlights from the trip were not only learning about the rich history and treasures of the ancient Egyptian world, but also the fun and relaxed times we shared as a small group-especially riding camels at the Great Pyramids, hot-air ballooning over the Valley of the Kings and exploring Abu Simbel. The Egyptian people are especially kind and friendly and we always felt very safe and welcomed. YET did a fabulous job putting our tour together which made it a trip we'll always remember!

    Make the most of your trip to Egypt
    Your Egypt Tours is a really well organised private tour company who are with you from the moment you land in Egypt. A gentleman named Ahmed took care of us with our international airport transfers which made everything that much easier. While in Cairo, our private tour guide uncle Mamdouh went above and beyond for us visiting various historical sites. His knowledge and information that he provided us with, were very valuable and helpful. If you are on your own you will miss out on so much. We can’t thank uncle Mamdouh enough for his service. Even when visiting Paris and Turkey we saw Egyptian monuments that uncle Mamdouh explained to us and it was like he was still with us when we saw those monuments. From the bottom of our heart we thank you uncle Mamdouh. We travelled to Aswan and were greeted by a gentleman named Mustafa to help us with our airport transfer like Ahmed did. While in Aswan and Luxor we were also looked after by our private tour guide uncle Mahmoud, a scholar amongst men. The knowledge, information and service provided by uncle Mahmoud was also top class and we can’t thank him enough for how he looked after us. The reason I am using uncle before their name is because they treated us like family. I was told by numerous people “be careful in Egypt” but with the uncles by your side you have nothing to worry about. We visited during Ramadan and both uncles were fasting yet they still have their 100% and did not skip a beat! Much love uncles! ❤️ I also have to give Peter a mention for the Cairo by night tour he did for us. He made our night tour very comfortable and stress free. Always thinking of you uncle Mamdouh and Uncle Mahmoud! Thank you so much!

    Your Egypt Tours made our trip to Egypt a trip of a lifetime
    Your Egypt Tours made our trip to Egypt a trip of a lifetime. We are so lucky that we picked OET to be our tour operator for our Nile cruise and our visit to Cairo. First, we gave them a laundry list of things we wanted to do and see. Mona was able to book a perfect trip for our family. We had three couples (Mom-in-Law, Dad-in-Law, Brother-in-Law and his wife, my husband, and I. Mona found us the Merit Dahabiya which was absolutely lovely, and I highly recommend EVERYONE taking a Nile cruise to do so on Merit Dahabiya. Mona was also able to build out an itinerary that satisfied everyone on the trip. Upon arriving in Luxor, we were provided with our guide, Ash. We were *so lucky* to have Ash as our guide. Ash has an unending wealth of knowledge when touring the sites and patience for days. Admittedly, our group of six can be a lot like herding cats. Two of us want all history, two want the best picture spots, one wants to shop, while one wants to curb the shopping (🤣). Ash was able to provide everyone with a little of what they wanted and kept our crew moving while providing enough time to experience Egypt the way we all wanted. I was really sad to have the cruise portion of the trip end. From Aswan, we went back to Cairo. *Our cruise was from Luxor to Aswan. We flew into Luxor from Cairo and out of Aswan to Cairo. In Cairo, we decided we wanted to add a trip to Saqqara and Memphis last minute. Your Egypt Tours was able to book our ideal day (GEM, Saqqara, Memphis, Civilization Museum) with a true diamond of a guide, Iman. Iman may be Egypt's greatest modern treasure. The way she communicated the history and importance of the sites we saw is true magic. Somewhere between a history lesson, slam poetry, and an award-winning docudrama, Iman delivered Egyptian history and connected it to my soul. I was so happy to have her, and our family is still in awe of how well the whole day was presented. We knew we had something special when everyone working at the different historical sites and museums would tell us, "You have the best tour guide in Egypt," and we couldn't agree more. Our trip was magic, and Your Egypt Tours made it all happen. Our family has traveled together to many places (India, Nepal, France, England, Peru, Italy, China, etc.), and few times has it been as great as this time. Book with Your Egpt Tours, ask to sail on Merit Dahabiya and see all the best sites. When in Cairo - try to get Iman as your guide. When in Luxor, try to get Ash as your guide.

    Private 17 day tour of Jordan and Egypt
    Your Egypt Tours has exceeded our expectations with personal customer service from the time we contacted Mona in operations to the last day of our 17-day private tour. Mono was in immediate contact with me after each question or change request made by our family in the planning process. She personalized the tour to our specific dates of available travel, our specific dietary requirements, and our wishes to see and experience the historical and cultural sites in Jordan and Egypt. The most amazing thing was the flexibility of the tour during the tour to add or change excursions on a days’ notice through the direct contacts of the Egyptologist guides and operation specialists. All our accommodations arranged by Mona were rated 5 stars by USA standards with guaranteed gluten free options at all dining experience in the included hotel dining as well as local dining arranged by our private Egyptologists. We felt very comfortable and safe throughout our tour from the time we stepped off the plane as the company had arranged a smiling English-speaking face to greet us and walk us through the Visa, customs, and check in boarding and departing procedures out of the airports with waiting private transportation throughout the entire tour. We became friends with our skilled private drivers, especially Ramy in Cairo, and the many Egyptologists, Faris in Jordan, and Mamdouh, Peter and Ash in Egypt. We were introduced at the many safety check points by Mamdouh as VIPs from America, but we felt like family VIP’s to him. In Jordan, we were wonderfully guided to see Amman Citadel, Roman Theater, and City tour with nighttime shopping and again by Faris to Mt. Nebo, Dead Sea, little Petra as well as the city of Petra with the temple façade in the red sandstone cliffs. We Experienced the sites of Cairo Egypt for four days with an amazing Egyptologist and walking encyclopedia, Mamdouh Ismail and superiorly skilled professional driver, Ramy. 1) Visited National Museum of Egyptian Civilization where there are 24 mummies from the 18,19,20 dynasties of the royal pharaohs. We also toured the private home of Gayer Anderson. 2) Giza‘s three Pyramids, Sphinx, Sakkara, (step Pyramid) and burial chambers, camel ride and ancient capital of Egypt city of Memphis, with a giant fallen statue of Ramses II. We visited the Papyrus Institute, and a cotton shop for shopping. Mamdouh arranged a delicious authentic Egyptian meal for our dinner experience. 3) Egyptian Museum with King Tutankhamun gold mask, coffin, and tomb treasures. Visited Mosque, Madrassa of Sultan Hassen, Alabaster Mosque at the Citadel of Salah el-Din. Our Egyptologists, Mamdouh expertly introduced the basic beliefs of the Islam religion. 4) Day trip to Alexandria, Roman burial site, the Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa, Citadel of Qaitbay and the Alexandria Library. Mamdouh arranged a wonderful dining fresh seafood experience with the local fisherman and restaurant owner where we selected our fish from the daily catch. Aswan and Nile Cruise with Egyptologist Peter Tanagho 1) High Dam, Elephantine Island by motor boat to Philae temple, Hotel was on this island in the middle of the Nile. Dinner in hotel roof top Hotel 360-degree restaurant 2) Abu Simbel, Temple of Ramses II (UNESCO site) and his queen Nefatari. We took a motor boat ride to the Nubian Village in which we were invited to visit a Nubian Home by Peter explaining the lifestyle and hospitality of the Nubian people and received a henna tattoo. Nile River Cruise 4 day on M S Nile Premium. 1) Kom Ombo temple (crocodile headed God of Fertility). Also, Temple of Horus (Temple of Horus. Edfu Temple, Luxor Temple. 2) Egyptologist ASH, guided and educated us about Colossi of Memnon, Hatshbsut temple, Karnak temple, and in the Valley of Kings visiting 5 burial chambers including King Tutankhamun, Valley of Queens, Nefatari burial tomb, and Pharaoh Amen Knape whom died as a child. Hurghada 2 days at Red Sea. 1) Super Safari with 4x4 and dune buggy driving and visit to the Bedouin Village. 2) Scuba diving in the Red Sea. Back to Cairo for 3 days with Mamdouh Ismail, Peter “Parker” and Ramy driving. 1) Discover Islamic Cairo visiting old mosque, places, Al-Azhar Mosque, Mosque of Al Hakim, 2) Discover Coptic Christians life in Egypt. Hanging Church, Monastery and Church of St. George, Abu Serga where the holy family rested in a cave. And the Palace of Mohamed Ali. Private shopping and coffee in the famous el Fishawy coffee shop and Bazaar, Khan el Khalili. Cairo by night with Peter “Parker” on Felucca boat cruise, and Ramadan Break Fast farewell dinner and photo ops. 3) Cairo airport at 4 am. To fly home. Reached our home at 1:30 am the next day. I must say this is the first totally private tour I have ever booked, and it was more reasonably priced than any larger group non-flexible option I explored. Mona was able to book room accommodations for 3 throughout the tour while other tour groups refused to or were unable to do so, costing charging my daughter the higher single rates. YOUR EGYPT TOURS has spoiled us with 5-star VIP customer service and I will always check out private tour options for all future vacations.

    Fantastic company to work with!
    My wife Jackie B also wrote a review about our great experience in Egypt with Your Egypt Tours. I also wanted to mention that besides the great guides and drivers that we had (which she included in her review), the support for planning the tours and help we received at the Cairo airport upon arrival and departure was also top-notch. Specifically, I interfaced with Mona by e-mail for more than 6 months prior to our trip to help plan all of the details of our 7 days in Cairo, Giza, Luxor, Aswan, and Abu Simbel. Mona is always extremely timely and thorough in her replies and had answers to every question that I had. She and Your Egypt Tours are very flexible in how you want to plan your trip in that they can (in addition to the tours) take care of flight, hotel, and meal arrangements if you’d like, or they can leave those items up to the travelers. Thank you SO much Mona for everything you did to help ensure we had a fantastic trip! You are a pleasure to work with! I’d also like to mention the great support we received at the Cairo airport from Ahmed, who warmly greeted us after we flew from Houston and helped us with luggage, immigration, and customs. Ahmed was also very helpful when we flew out of Cairo to Luxor and once again was there when we arrived in Cairo one last time prior to our next stop (Croatia) on our trip. Many thanks to Ahmed for all of his support. Also would like to thank Peter for his assistance to help escort us from the airport to our hotel in Cairo (despite it being after 12:00 midnight upon our arrival). Thanks to everyone on the great team at Your Egypt Tours! We will gladly recommend your excellent company to all of our family and friends that are planning to travel to Egypt!

    AWESOME Experience
    Our Egypt tour far exceeded our expectations from beginning to end. Our guides were always on time whether it was picking us up at the airport or meeting us at the hotel to start our tour. My husband and I did a private tour which we highly recommend to get that personal experience with our guides. We had Sultan in Cairo and Ash in Luxor and Aswan. Both of these gentlemen have a wealth of knowledge and had a special way of delivering the information which made us hungry for more. If you’re traveling to Luxor and/or Aswan, you’ll want to ask for Usama as your driver. Ash and Usama was the perfect team!!! Our safety was always in good hands when we were with them. We were able to enjoy our many tours while not having to lug around our backpacks since Usama was always on watch. He truly cares about his job and takes it very seriously which we greatly appreciated. My husband and I can’t say enough good things about this company as they truly do bend over backwards to ensure that you leave Egypt with a lifetime of wonderful memories.

    Wonderful Customized Tour of Cairo
    We had an excellent guide (Robert) and driver to see the sights of Cairo. We had worked with Your Egypt Tours in advance to customize the itinerary to our liking (added Museum of Civilization and extended duration of tour). Robert was very knowledgable about everything we asked. He paced the activities extremely well to ensure we saw everything we wanted; he was flexible if we wanted a little more or less time. Despite the chaotic traffic of Cairo, we never felt unsafe.

    Great Company to explore Egypt with
    We had booked with an US travel agent who is working with Your Egypt Tours on our first egypt travel for my wife’s birthday. The entire team has been fantastic start to finish- from Ahmed who met us at the airport and explored Islamic Cairo with us, Mamdouh who took us to Gizah, Saqqara and Memphis and through Coptic Cairo to Ash who was with us during our Nile Cruise from Abu Simbel through Aswan, Edfu, Kom Ombo to Luxor. A great attention to detail, their expertise in designing the agenda and finding the least crowded spots and the Hotels and Cruise ship was first class. Would definitely recommend booking through Your Egypt Tours.

    The magic element to our time in Egypt!
    We are so blessed to have the opportunity to tour Egypt with Your Egypt Tours! They guided us from the moment we landed in Cairo, traveling to Aswan, guiding our journey along the Nile, traveling from Luxor to Cairo and ensuring our safe return home. Every guide and driver was welcoming and warm. They truly made us feel at home in Egypt. We felt safe and well taken care of with the Your Egypt Tours team. Without the care, attention to detail and warmth of the team our time in Egypt wouldn't have been as magical. We celebrated my 30th birthday here and the team truly went above and beyond to ensure I had an amazing birthday in Cairo. We cannot recommend this company and team enough for your time in Egypt.

    Amazingly delightful and seemless
    Your Egypt Tours are #1 in my book. Starting with Mona who organized and communicated with our group of 4 friends. Mona was with us all prior to our depart and through our entire trip. Although I’ve never met Mona I feel like I know her. Her dedication and knowledge was indispensable. Thank you Mona! We toured all of Egypt , Jordan and 1 day in Israel. Our tour guides were sensational. Knowledge, professionalism and good will was stupendous. We loved Momduoh, Ahmed, Peter, Abu David, and Mamud. They are pros and great Egyptologist. We had such an enjoyable and seamless vacation through Egypt, Jordan and Israel. We learned so much, had amazing food, stayed in gorgeous hotels (5 star) and we were so well taken care of. The drivers were superb as well. We were so Sad to say goodbye to such lovely people. Thank you for a vacation of a lifetime. I Hope our paths cross again. You will not regret working with Your Egypt Tours.

  • thomashW6942PB
    Perfectly organized, excellent experience
    Thanks to Your Egypt Tours for providing us with an excellent experience on our first visit to Egypt. Everything was perfectly organized, comfortable and we felt safe the entire time. We were greeted at the airport in Cairo inside customs, and then over a series of smooth hand-offs taken care off the entire week, including hotels, cruise, transfer, and sight seeing. The guides were very knowledgeable, and this matters, because many important things here are poorly labeled, and so much of the wonder of this place is in the little details that are easy to overlook. It was nice not having to worry about any logistics and simply be taken care of. There was a good balance between very intense sight-seeing and downtime. The sights and experiences in Egypt are truly amazing, and we do highly recommend these folks for anyone contemplating a trip.

    Amazing Experience
    My wife and I only had two days to spend in Cairo/Giza and we wanted to make the most of our time. We are so glad we chose to book a private tour with Your Egypt Tours. Everything went extremely smoothly from the first moment we contacted them. Mona, in charge of customer service, was extremely helpful, responsive and efficient for all of our questions and queries in advance of our arrival and they were able to accommodate all of our requests and to tailor the itinerary to our interests. We were met at the airport by our excellent tour leader, Ahmed, who helped us through the customs process and ensured, throughout our time in Cairo, that we had everything we need. Our Egyptologist guide, Mahmdouh, was also exceptional. As were both of the drivers we had, who skillfully and safely navigated through the “organized chaos”. The highlights were of course the sites, which easily exceeded our expectations. The unique experience of visiting the pyramids of Giza simply is one of the premiere travel experiences available today. A big thank you for everyone at Your Egypt Tours for making the experience stress-free, very safe and extra memorable.
