          Best and safe experience in Egypt
          I want to start by saying that egypt united tours is by far the best and number 1 tour company in Egypt. The way that my trip was prepared was the most beautiful experience. They have the most kind and servicial crew. From the office staff to the tours guides and drivers . I traveled with my daughter and at the beginning I was a bit worried about this trip , but it was the most beautiful experience, we felt safe at all times . Everyone treated us like family . Egypt is safe people ! I had the most wonderful experience with my daughter. I want to give the most thanks to my tour guide Sherif Safwat the best Egyptologist in town , very knowledgeable, kind and always, always looking for the best interest for my daughter an I. Thank you so much sherif you are the best ! I also want to thank the driver Mohammad “ the candy man” lol he treated us so kind a true gentleman , thank you so much for taking us all over the place . To the most kind we representative Tamir thank you , thank you for being there when we arrive and doing all the visa process and for being there when you drop us off you when far a and beyond for us at the airport. Thank you ALL for making us feel like family . I truly will forever be thankful and keep you all in my heart .

          15 day of best Egypt solo tour
          I had a best historian, Ahmed, who became a good friend being able to learn and discuss the human history in depth for 12days of visiting great historical sites out of 15 day private tour. He was very professional with his education and guiding, yet very personable character. He climbed Mt.Sinai for his 2nd time ever for sunrise with me too. Scuba diving in Red Sea was exciting at Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh. Mr.Tamir took care of all my airport matters very swiftly and professionally to cut through much long lines, not cutting lines but knowing the way through at the airport missed all the unnecessary delays.. I definitely gave a good tip for making the transition smooth for my jumps along with Ahmed, my guide. And, I thank mostly with initial communicater, Ms.Mohga at office, and smooth drivers along the way. Definitely , I had more than a vacation on the way back, my friend Ahmed. ^&^

          Like having Egyptian friends who can provide advice, guidance and coordinate travel to ensure an unforgettable trip
          Providing a WhatsApp group that Egypt United Tours set up for you and your group, they provide quick and helpful answers to all your holiday questions, whilst also coordinating your holiday tailored to you. They organised the most incredible cruise experience for us on board the MS Mayfair, truly the best quality trip possible. Going beyond all expectations, they even provided additional activities on the last day of the cruise with a brilliant guide who showed us Lord Kitchener’s Botanical Garden and the Nubian village with a boat all to ourselves. A truly unforgettable day. On request, they also coordinated a last minute booking for us to travel from Aswan to Hurghada by train and taxi, the most reasonably priced option and including guides that took us to the station in Aswan first class, met us in Luxor station to introduce us to the taxi driver and also booked the best taxi possible. This took all the stress of travel away and allowed us to have the most wonderful holiday imaginable. I could not recommend them more. With Egypt United Tours you will have the holiday of a lifetime.

          Amazing Egypt trip!
          Organization of the trip from the start was fantastic with Hamad, he made the reassurances of what our schedule would look like and was very accessible throughout the entire trip! Our tour leader, Amr Mansy was with our family in Cairo, Aswan and Luxor and he was very friendly and easy to be around. We did travel during Ramadan, so some of the sites in Cairo were closed earlier, so planning to see all the sites on a particular day may look different than when travelling not during Ramadan. Egypt is beautiful, and I would highly recommend Egypt United Tours for families that want an easy, well-planned trip to this amazing country.

          6 full day tour with Egypt United
          We had a full day guide for 6 days with Egypt United. Our guide Amr was very knowledgeable and accommodating, trying to make us as comfortable as possible. Only one small feedback from me is that as a north American, I am used to have many opportunities allowed to ask questions but my experience was that we were a little bit in rush, which we had to move onto the next thing usually right after each explanation was made. Overall Egypt United was honest and trust worthy. Thank you Amr and Egypt United.

          14 day Nile River cruise on Mövenpick’s Darakum
          We just finished a 14 day Nile River cruise booked with Egypt United and they did a great job. They are full-service…with transfers/visa assistance upon arrival and airport escorts (which is very helpful in Egypt). They set up an Egyptologist guide for our trip, Ahmed Nashaat, and he was fantastic. Ahmed gave us great tours of each archaeological site, answered all our questions about ancient and current Egypt, and helped us with all our needs…getting stamps, finding an ATM, advice for tipping, obtaining medicine, and anything else we could need. It was the trip of a lifetime and it was fantastic.

          Learned about fascinating Ancient Egypt with great service from a professional agency!
          1) As a solo female traveler traveling to Egypt 2) during a time when there’s war in the region and 3) hearing from others about aggressive sales tactics and harassments at touristy areas, I wanted to make sure I pick a good tour agency to travel with. I reached out to numerous agencies and decided to go with Egypt United Tours (EUT) because of their quick response, patiently working with me to customize my itinerary, and the professionalism from the team, specifically from Athar and Hamad, the CEO. When I called EUT I made sure to let them know that I enjoy learning and I want a knowledgeable guide. Sherif, who was my tour guide for the 10 days, is an Egyptologist and is very well-versed in Ancient Egypt. It’s no wonder because he’s been a tour guide for 16 years! I typically join group tours to cut cost and to meet new people, so this trip was my first private tour experience as a solo traveler. Some benefits are that you get to customize your itinerary - for example, I asked if I could check out Valley of the Queens and Sherif was able to check with the company very quickly and arrange to take me (I just had to cover the additional cost). If I’m too tired I can take things out of the itinerary and just take it easy or switch to a less strenuous activity, which Sherif would be happy to suggest alternatives. The itinerary works well for solo travelers - I enjoyed sitting on the sun deck for hours reading my book with beautiful views along the Nile River. Ancient Egypt is fascinating and there’s so much to see and so much to do. Sherif will also check in on me and make himself available in case any issues arise, and he is keen to show Egyptian hospitality and will invite you to sit at local cafes trying local tea, mango juice and shisha. I appreciate nice videos and photos for my Instagram account and Sherif has a good eye to point out good photo spots and helped me take nice photos and videos too! I also appreciated how Sherif would help manage the sales people so I didn’t have to experience a lot of the aggressive selling. Having a local guide definitely helps with this! Lastly, there’s no standard itinerary that they try to push to you for commission or anything like that. If there was something I was less interested in, Sherif tried to understand my preferences and made recommendations based on it and it was up to me to decide what works best. I went on a 10 day trip with EUT (including a 5D4N Nile Cruise) and at an initial glance, the quote was much higher than what another agency provided. Sherif took time to go through the 2 itineraries with me to understand the differences and I saw how EUT’s itinerary covered more sites and had better quality hotels and cruise. It’s good to raise this with the agency before you decide on which one to use if you’re receiving multiple quotes - they can help point out the differences or make it more competitive. Despite that, because it was something I had raised, Hamad went out of his way to offer to cover the entrance fees and additional activities to make his quote extremely competitive. All the tour guides and guests has access to Hamad the CEO, so if I had any concerns it would be addressed quickly. I also decided to add a trip to Abu Simbel on Feb 22nd for the Sun Festival. Athar and Hamad were very thoughtful to help adding a complimentary day use at the hotel in Aswan so that I can rest coming back from an 8 hour round trip ride in the wee hours of the morning. Attending the Sun Festival is not for the faint hearted and it takes good preparation from the agency to succeed in getting into the temple while the sun is still on the face of the statues inside the temple. Thanks to the small details - finding a good driver (thank you Hossam!) who’s able to drive safely but will hustle to get ahead of other cars/buses, purchasing the ticket online ahead of time so we don’t have to wait in line, and help with navigating through the massive crowds and being firm on others trying to cut in front of me - all of this contributed to me having the chance to get into the temple just in time! The airport assist at immigration and pick ups (thank you Tamer for your hospitality and kindness) and transition between cruise to hotel and from site to site were seamless because they have local teams and contacts at each city which are arranged ahead of time to ensure that their guests don’t experience the hiccups and long wait. All in all it’s been an amazing experience with EUT. I didn’t feel unsafe in Egypt and unfortunately because of the war, many tourists have canceled their trips, but it also means less crowd for me at the monuments during my time here and it was great! Some tips: I would recommend discussing with EUT on including entrance fees in the initial quote so it’s one less thing you have to worry about during your vacation and they can also purchase tickets online for you.

          Amazing trip of a lifetime to Egypt
          We opted to choose a customised 8 day tour of Egypt, including The Giza Pyramids, Egyptian museum, Cairo Tower, Saqqara and Memphis, followed by a delightful tour of Aswan and Abu Simbel. We were fortunate to have an amazing cruise down the Nile, where we took the views in a relaxed pace. Our cruise took us to Luxor and again we were off to discover more incredible tours of Karnak temples, Valley of the Kings and Queens and much, much more. Our guide Amr Mansy was an outstanding guide. His knowledge of Egyptian history and architecture was boundless. All the team made us feel very comfortable and ensured we kept in touch if we needed to ask any questions about timings and meeting points. Our flights were changed at short notice due to the flight company, and Egypt United tour services managed to rearrange everything to fit in our requirements at short notice. It really was a trip of a lifetime, we would very much recommend this company and hope to travel with them again in the future. My only wish is that I can learn Arabic to emerse ourselves into the experience fully.

          Incredible Egypt experience
          Overdue review! A group of my friends booked a 2 week private tour with Egypt United Tours and we had a memorable experience. We worked with Hamad and Monda to set up the multi-city itinerary. I was impressed with how efficient and responsive they were starting from months before our actual trip. Once in Egypt, our tour was fantastic as we were accompanied to all the cultural sites by Egyptologist Ahmed Nashaat. He is a wonderful source of information on all places in Egypt. He was very helpful and enriched our travels . We were fortunate to see these amazing sites and citiess, and learn about them in detail. I would highly recommend Egypt United for a fantastic Egypt trip.

          Wonderful Trip!!
          We took a private 8-day trip, including a Nile Cruise, with UTS, and it was wonderful. Right from planning to execution, everything was handled very efficiently. We did go back and forth multiple times and asked numerous questions that were promptly handled by Abdelrahman and Hamad. Once in Egypt, we were taken care of from the minute we landed to the minute we left and did not have to figure anything out for ourselves. Everything was taken care of for us by the team at UTS. Special shoutout to Hamad for arranging a complimentary dinner at a rooftop overlooking the pyramids for my parents' anniversary and for wonderful parting gifts. On our return from Luxor to Cairo, our flight got considerably delayed, and they provided us with complimentary use of the hotel for a few hours, which was much appreciated. They were also flexible to add/delete places from our itinerary as needed. Also, a huge shoutout to our egyptologist Ahmed Nashaat for not only teaching us so much about Egyptian history and culture but also taking care of us throughout the trip. If anyone is planning a trip to Egypt, go with Egypt United Tours, and you won't regret it. (Note for planning: if booking a cruise, ship timings are subject to change last minute & UTS has no control over this... be prepared for 4:45/5:00 am sightseeings. An extra night in Luxor after the cruise would have been great. Also, please be aware that many places in Egypt are not senior friendly, and there are lots of stairs involved. Getting onto a boat en route to the Nubian village was one such adventure invloving a very narrow path and unsteady wooden planks. Again, it's not the fault of the tour company. Just let them know ahead of time if you need special accommodations) Kudos to Ahmed Nashaat for helping keep my parents safe at each such juncture. Nashaat also helped get personalized cartouches made for us, which we absolutely loved!! Thanks to Abdelrahman for a quick city tour around Tahrir Square the day we left Cairo. We were able to see modern Cairo and appreciate how locals live today. Again, the team at Egypt United Tours went above and beyond to take care of us as family, and we would absolutely recommend them to all our friends.

          Amazing Experience
          We have just experienced the most amazing 8 days in Egypt. We booked a personalised tour for my wife and I and our 2 adult daughters. From the very start Monda was extremely accommodating to all our requests and very quick to respond. We were a little anxious arriving at Cairo airport for the first time however we were greeted by the company representative Tamer who did a fantastic job organising our visas, collecting our luggage and checking us into our Hotel with a minimum of fuss. He made us feel very comfortable. The next morning we were introduced to our tour guide, Egyptologist Ahmed. We consider ourselves so, so lucky to have had this man taking us to all the fantastic sights Egypt has to offer. His knowledge and enthusiasm for the pyramids, temples and tombs was unbelievable. He went out of his way to organise everything for us as well as suggesting a number of options we hadn't thought about. We cannot recommend him highly enough. We would have no hesitation in booking with Egypt United Tours again, their administration and staff are first class.

          Worry-Free Experience - 10/10
          What a fortunate opportunity we had to be guided by Amr and Tamir. This was a special experience for me and my family. While the trip was only 6 days, we visited 3 cities, and too many historical sites to count. If Egypt is a trip on your list, we strongly recommended using Egypt United Tours. They are professional, and truly care about the work they do, and the experience they provide you with. 10/10 - Thank you Egypt United Team.

          Still smiling everytime I think about the trip
          Egypt was so great! We booked our river cruise, day trip to pyramids and Egyptian Museum through Mohga and she also got us train tickets and delivered them to us at our hotel. It was great to meet her because she had been a delight to work with. My contact at the the first company I tried was slow at responding and sometimes it was just one word, no. I thought time was running out for us to get a cruise lined up in the time we had. I asked Mohga if a certain boat was a available and right away she got back to me a said no but she would look for another one. It was even better! It had floor to ceiling windows that opened and had railings. It was like having a balcony. Waleed our guide was very knowledgeable, helpful and fun. The vans that transported us to the sights were very deluxe. It was fantastic!

          Once in a lifetime tour through Egypt
          Nine of us toured Egypt that was fully arranged by Egypt United Tours and Travel. From the moment we landed in Cairo airport till the moment we departed Egypt, every aspect of our tour was planned and executed by them. They took care of our varied needs and accommodated last minute requests to make it one of our most memorable trips. Our Egyptologist, Ahmed Nashaat, was with us through the whole trip and educated and entertained us all the way. Not only did he guide us on the historical aspects of everything we saw, but he also was able to give us a first hand appreciation for Egyptian culture. Without hesitation, I am happy to say that in just a few days we all felt that Ahmed was more of a friend and a bona fide 10th member of our pack. If you are considering a trip to Egypt, just go ahead and do it. Make sure you pick Egypt United Tours and ask for Ahmed Nashaat. You will be in for the treat of a lifetime.

        It was a trip of a lifetime! Ahmed, Abrahim, and Tarek were incredible guides! We were able to see all the major sites with plenty of time. There was never a minute I didn’t feel taken care of by the tour guides, and I never felt unsafe. Your Egypt Tours is the way to go and have a perfect tour of ancient Egypt.

        We had an amazing time on our 2 day desert safari trip to Fayoum! Our guide, Ali, was the absolute best and became more like family by the end of our time in Egypt. Travel was seamless and safe, they adjusted the trip to meet our specific needs and they accommodated small things like a brief Starbucks run that made the trip all the better.

        Ali was EXTREMELY knowledgeable of the area and the people, he also gave us some tips for getting around in Cairo and Saqqara although he wasn't our guide for those days.

        We had such a great trip to Fayoum that we ended up using the same tour company for a day trip to Alexandria with Ali as our guide again, and they booked our Nile Riverboat Dinner Cruise and a driver for us for that experience.

        I would highly recommend Egypt United Tours and Travel for your excursions around Egypt and if you're lucky enough to get Ali, you're in for an amazing treat!

        The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. As a solo traveler I’ve traveled to many countries and I can find my Egyptian tour guide Ahmed is the best ever!
        My day tour was very well organised right from Ahmed and the driver picked me up from hotel till we got back to hotel.
