          The Absolute most AMAZING, INCREDIBLE part of our Egypt Experience! Highly Recommend!!
          WOW - What an incredible experience! One of those ones you don't want to review to keep it a secret - but you HAVE to review thanks to the incredible, outstanding service of the team - specifically Yoma who helped organize and put everything together, and Mr.Mahmoud who served as an absolutely stellar, insightful and engaging tour guide for our experience. This was a true life memory that we won't soon forget

          Great tour!
          I went to the Great Pyramid just before sunrise and it was a magical experience. There is nothing quite like being in an ancient structure with just two other people (tour guide and the security guard). I got to explore the Kings, Queens and the lower chamber. My tour guide was Mahmoud, and he was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the information he was sharing. I would definitely book more tours with him! We exited the pyramid just as the sun was rising, so got to watch the beautiful sunrise from the steps of the pyramid. I also want to thank Zahra, who helped me book the tour and was very helpful and quick to reply to any queries I had. (Do bring extra cash with you for tipping).

          VIP tour with Mr Aref, our driver and Tour Club Egypt for a wonderful day exploring the pyramids plateau. All made possible with Yoma's kind helpful assistance. Highly recommend them!

          I had an amazing tour guide named Mr. Aref. He went above and beyond to make sure this was a wonderful experience. As a solo female tourist in Egypt it was important for me to feel safe and secure both of which I felt with Mr. Aref. I highly recommend you seek him out as a guide… you will not regret it!!!!!

          (2/5*) – The worst tour guide experience I’ve ever had but Management at least does seem to care
          It’s been a few days since I actually had this experience, so I don't think I'm being overly-emotional when when I write that this was easily the worst tour guide experience I’ve ever had in my entire life. The complete disorganisation and lack of consideration for customer experience was borderline comical and would have been genuinely funny if not for the fact that they charge a premium for the service. To give some lowlights (I could go on but I won’t bore you with them all): • I organized an individual private tour, costing just under $100, to get to the pyramids as early as possible to see the sunrise. Having woken up at 5:50am for a 6:10am pickup, the guide, Hazem, told me he would actually be there at 6:40am, with no apology or real explanation. He also then asked where my location was at 6:10am, which was astounding that he had clearly woken up without any planning as to where or when he was going for the pickup the next day (I had provided my location several times to TourEgypt the day before) • Having eventually arrived to pick me up with a driver (so there was a driver and a guide), we then drove around in circles for a bit, before getting on the motorway and heading in the opposite direction out of Cairo, at which point, having only been in the country for 4 days, I had to get GoogleMaps up and guide the driver and Hazem to the pyramids. Hazem insisted that it was not his fault, and kept on blaming the driver, but there was just so much blaming other people, without any ownership or responsibility himself. • Having arrived an hour late, Hazem then tried to get me to pay for my ticket, even though this was covered in the $90 tour price • Once we made it inside, he spoke a bit about the pyramids, but his English was pretty poor and after attempting to ask a few basic questions about the pyramids and Egypt in general, which were met with puzzled looks or just completely misunderstanding as to what I said, I just gave up • He was however very interested in asking me what my favourite type of girl was, and then, when not making sexist remarks about his female colleagues at TourEgypt, got very excited about the opportunity to tell me what his favourite type of girl is (Spoiler: it’s Brazilian). • The highlight had to be when he genuinely suggested that the pyramids may have been built using dinosaurs to carry the stones. Whilst this is absolutely hilarious, it is indicative of the lack of knowledge about Egyptian history he appeared to have • In the end the whole experience made me so frustrated I left pretty early, and when I complained to TourEgypt, the sales rep, Zahra tried to then blame me for the reason the driver was late as I did not provide any location, at which point I had to send over 4 screenshots from the day before, where I stated multiple times where my address was, including screenshots from GoogleMaps • The assistant CEO, Salma, then got involved, and to be fair to her, did seem genuinely apologetic and is main reason that this tour doesn’t get 1 star, as she did make a concerted effort to make amends and provided a full refund which was much appreciated • Overall the poor management, awful tour, complete lack of internal communication in TourEgypt between Sales Team/Guide/Driver would mean that I absolutely would not recommend this tour to anyone, especially the guide Hazem. Perhaps they will make some changes as Salma does seem to care but who knows. Or maybe I just got really, really, really, really, really unlucky that day. But I doubt it.

          Amazing private tour of the Great pyramid
          The private tour provided by Tour Egypt Club was a spectacular experience. They were very prompt to respond right from my first enquiry about the tour and provided all the info I needed to decide whether my family group of 6 could do this. It is quite expensive because it involves getting the required permissions from the Ministry of Antiquities, the police etc. Tour Egypt Club took care of all the details and got everything ready before our tour. They also arranged a wonderful guide, Mahmoud Zaghloul, who helped to make it a great experience for us. It was truly amazing to see the work of humans from so many centuries ago. I highly recommend this tour if you’re able to accommodate the high price tag.

          Excellent
          A wonderful team of people. Everything planned perfectly by the team. Super smooth operations. From the greet at the airport to the safety of an escort through departures. Wonderful experience. The vip tour inside pyramid at 3am was out of this world! They work very hard to make everything perfect for the visit. Salma is very professional and worked with me morning & night to make sure I had everything booked as I wanted. Highly recommend this professional l, friendly and kind company. Wonderful.

          Private tour inside the pyramids and both Egyptian museums
          One of the best travel experiences I’ve had in my life. I was in Egypt for a long layover and I wanted to visit the pyramids and both Egyptian museums. I reached out to the tour company via WhatsApp and they were able to customize a private tour just for me. My highly knowledgeable tour guide Samaa has done a wonderful job walking me through the artifacts at the Egyptian museums and explaining the history of each highly valuable piece and the story of pyramids. Going inside the pyramids was a life-changing experience for me as I have always dreamed of living the history and enigma inside its walls. Did I also mention she’s a great photographer?! I highly recommend booking this tour specially if you sold the Traveler within the limited amount of time in Cairo. Regardless with the time you have in Cairo the convenience, if not waiting in line, purchasing tickets, haggling and get lost, make the cost of this tour highly feasible.

          Trip of a lifetime, what a truly wonderful experience!
          I’ve been home a week and after being in Egypt for 31 days this was by far the highlight of our trip! It was just me, my nephew and son in law for the whole trip, and boy were we spoiled on this beautiful, well maintained Dahabiya called The Loulia. The captain and crew (including tug boat captain) were the nicest group of men ever, always smiling and preforming every aspect of their job with an easy efficient manner. From unfurling the sails, to being there for me when I needed an extra arm getting up steps. (Recent hip surgery). I can not say enough about the chefs meals, I’m vegetarian and at every meal there were so many dishes to try, everything was so fresh with so much flavor that I find my fruits and vegetables lacking in the States now, lol! It was almost to much food, breakfast was quite a spread followed by a delicious lunch and later tea and cookies, when dinner rolled around even if we weren’t hungry hungry we were there at the table to see what chef had come up with for a remarkable dinner experience! Every single thing served was amazing! And now about the egyptologist Mohammed, our tour guide. We learned so much from him, so knowledgeable and friendly, taking time to answer all of my nephews questions. The off boat tours along the way were amazing, he made each site come to life with tons of ancient information that was carved into the stone/marble. Even though it was only 4 nights and 5 days, by the time we were done, everyone on board felt like family. I’m 70 and have traveled a lot and I must say this was my favorite experience ever! If you’re thinking about a boat trip, this is the one, just do it, you will not regret it. And to all the crew and Mohammed, if you’re ever in the states, I’d love to show you Missouri! Thank you, thank you all, sincerely, Belinda.

          Amazing Egypt!
          We had an amazing trip to Egypt as a family of six. From the initial planning, to the arrival, and departure they did an amazing job of ensuring that we were cared for and we’re able to experience as much as possible. Hayam our tour organizer did a great job of taking the places I wanted to go and building a unique itinerary for my family. We traveled between many large cities in Egypt, and she coordinated the transport. I appreciated her quick response in the planning phase, and then once we arrived she checked in with us every day to ensure our trip was going as planned. We were able to experience so much of Egypt and learned so many amazing things about the history. It will be a trip we remember for a lifetime.

          Like front row seats to amazing sites!
          Thanks to Samaa (Sky), I got a lot of valuable knowledge about Ancient Egypt and its traditions. Samaa is a talented and knowledgeable guide who knows how to explain complex history in a simple way and engage tourists. After her tour, it is impossible not to fall in love with Egypt. The tour was like having front row seats to the best sites in the World. Samaa and her driver make an amazing team.

        We booked our Felucca boat ride on the Nile river in Cairo with Elegant Voyage Tour Company and had a wonderful time. The experience was well worth it but what really made it perfect for us was our tour guide Ahmed Ghanem. He picked us up in our hotel lobby on time and watched over us the entire time. The car ride was safe and the conversation with him was pleasant. He made sure we stayed safe the complete time and made the entire experience most wonderful. I can't say enough good things about him as a tour guide. I would definitely recommend him. Very very enjoyable!!!
