          An unforgettable cruise along the Nile discovering ancient Egypt and much more
          We had the pleasure of going on the Dababiya tour for 4 days. Meticulously organised, the tour took us to all the key ancient sites from Aswan to Luxor and every historical spot we visited was more breathtaking than the last. The boat we stayed on was beautiful and clean, and the friendly crew ensured we were comfortable and at ease from the minute we arrived. The onboard chefs provided us with the best meals along the journey, and were so fun to be around. Our tour guide Essam was kinder and more knowledgeable than we could have hoped for. His Egyptology expertise was vast and his passion for the subject was engaging, allowing us to learn so much from the wonderful history all around us. He was so personable and friendly, and getting to spend time with him, learning about the history and also the local Egyptian culture and customs was incredible. Everywhere we went with Essam we felt truly comfortable and taken care of. A standout on our trip was the village tour. Welcomed by our local guide Esma, we stopped at a quiet and beautiful village where we were shown the seasonal crops and learned about the local history. Esma graciously welcomed us into her home where we met her wonderful family, enjoyed delicious homemade beverages and got to interact with their animals. Later, a delicious barbecue was preprared for us by the crew on a little patio at the edge of the village, and we got to enjoy some live music and dance with the locals. An incredible day overall. It was amazing to see that not only does the tour company provide a great service to tourists but also prides itself on fostering networks with local communities, from the quality of drivers and boat captains to the sourcing of ingredients for the food they serve. A truly one-of-a-kind experience for anyone looking to explore the wonders Egypt has to offer. Could not recommend this trip enough! Dyanna & Antonio

          Best experience EVER
          We went on the four day Nile-cruise on dahabiya boat. It was truly a magical experience. We saw almost every temple and sight along the way, with our great tourguide who knew the answer to everything you asked and had great patience with bad english of some of us. Plus, he is also very good at chess. The boat staff was very nice and professional, always ready to help (they saved me from angry donkey as well). The food was amazing. Im sure our cook must have won Masterchef Egypt. Whole boat was very clean and comfy with plenty space. This tour sure was an experience of a lifetime.

          Best Experience!!! Go on this Dahabiyat cruise!!
          OMG, I couldn't have asked for a better nile trip, 5/5, 100% would recommend. Mahmoud was so knowledgeable, not just about ancient egypt, but Egypt as a whole - religion, culture, norms anything you asked; he had an answer for. He was so friendly, patient, personable warmhearted, passionate and took care of us from the first moments to the last one, as a whole group, but individually as well, checking on us all the time. He is my favourite tour guide by far!! I was on the traditional boat, the Dahabiyat and because it was a small group, Mahmoud made it personable, stopping at places to swim in the nile, to visit sites not on the itinerary, to have dinner in a village with live music and dancing with locals and honestly, it was the first time i actually just relaxed, knowing that everything was taken care of. If you are planning a trip to Egypt, the Nile cruise, on an Dahabiyat is a must, and if you get Mahmoud then consider yourself LUCKY. loved this trip- a definite highlight for me on my travels. And the cruise crew was so welcoming and so fun to be cared under. Its WORTH IT, trust me!!! You won't regret it and the memories will last you a lifetime

          Better than expected transfer to Luxor
          We had a private transfer from Aswan to Luxor with Gaber, our driver. He was on time at the hotel and was very kind and professional. His car was very clean, he brought us drinks and treats for the journey and made everything possible for us to be comfortable during the trip. He was very careful driving and also delivered us within schedule. Very good!!

          Outstanding tailor-made visit of Nile valley and Cairo extension (private tour)
          Happy Egypt organised for our family (parents and children aged 16-21) a made-to-measure tour of Egypt. We started after a day break on the red sea and were leaving from Cairo. Happy Egypt organised everything for us: schedule, transfers, hotels, visits, entries, … as well as a super friendly very knowledge and professional guide whose role in making our holiday amazing was undeniable. The tour took into account our desire to have family time, but also see the sites when they would be quieter, to have explanations during the visits yet free time to also look at our own pace, and overall, all were met. Boat was very small (as per our wishes) with a crew that could not have done more for us. Water always available in taxi, boat, etc. No hassle from anyone, just pure pleasure. If we were to return, there is nothing we would change and we will recommend this company to any of our friends who plan such a holiday: big thank you from all of us. Thank you Ahmed, thank you Mostafa.

          Very reliable tour agency
          The tour was very organised and they meet what was planned. Communication was also very clear, from the planning to during the tour. We would like to highlight that we enjoy the tour guide they assigned to us in Cairo, and the driver in Luxor.

          The best itinerary at Luxor
          旅行の予約が非常にスムーズに行われ、スケジュールは私たちの希望を最大限に受け入れてくれました。 熱気球はホテルまで時間通りに迎えが来て、ドライバーは最後まで非常に紳士的でした。 気球は全ての人が十分に景色を堪能できるように余裕のある人数で乗ることができます。 気球は乗るだけでなく、気球が浮かび上がる様子を見る所から迫力ある体験ができます。 ルクソールからデンデラへのday tripは出発希望時間を聞いてくれ、私たちだけのための旅程が組まれました。 この旅もドライバーはとても紳士的でした。 昨年もこの会社に依頼しましたが、この会社は常にゆとりある綺麗な車を用意してくれます。 プライベートの依頼でもコストは非常に好意的です。 この先も私はこちらの会社に依頼し続けます。 The travel arrangements were made extremely smoothly, and the schedule accommodated our preferences to the fullest extent. The hot air balloon driver arrived at the hotel on time, and the driver was very courteous throughout. The balloon can accommodate a comfortable number of passengers so that everyone can enjoy the scenery adequately. Riding the balloon offers a thrilling experience, not only from being aloft but also from witnessing the balloon ascend. For the day trip from Luxor to Dendera, they inquired about our preferred departure time and arranged an itinerary just for us. The driver for this journey was also very courteous. We had used this company last year as well, and they always provide spacious and clean cars. Even for private arrangements, their costs are very reasonable. I intend to continue relying on this company for my future travels.

          The best of worry-free 10 days in Egypt as a solo female traveller
          I know this came in a bit later than expected. I have so much to share but I think I will narrow down to the more important ones. Answering to which activity, should be more than 1 answer option because I’m gonna share it all! 😂 I was referred by a friend to Eid Moawed. One of the guides who helped me plan by bespoke private itinerary for 10 days in Egypt. And no I did not regret it! During my journey with Eid, I was told by other guides that I am lucky to have him as my guide and wallahi it’s true. Throughout my trip in Egypt, I met different guides, airport assistance and drivers at different cities and they are all lovely! As a solo female traveller, I was well taken care of! Here are shoutouts of people (support assistance, drivers and guides) who were involved and they were all amazing! In Cairo, Airport assistance: Walid made the first impression of my trip looked beautiful already. Driver: Sayed Fathi drove a comfortable vehicle for just me who also drove me on my last day in Cairo. Guide: Mohamed who is a very focused guide. Unfortunately it was a long flight for me I had requested to end the tour early. And no, there was nothing wrong with him. In Giza & Alexandria Driver: Very shy driver, Ahmed Shaaban again another comfortable ride just for 1 person Guide: another Mohamed (aka Medo) brought me for my tour. Mohamed reminds me a lot of “Danny Devito” he is really hilarious! I couldn’t keep up with his energy! Thanks for accompanying me for lunch at Sobhy Kaber in Cairo and Branzino in Alexandria. In Aswan, Airport Assistance: I was also welcomed by another gentleman who I forgot his name at this time because I was slightly occupied with work. But he did helped me a lot with my luggage when I was engaged. Driver: Ami Yousef (driver) he really reminds me of one of my uncle. He’s just sweet. He also drove me to Abu Simbel and I also requested to stop by at pharmacy to get some stuffs. He was really accommodating. Guide: Ahmed, who has a cool, chill 😎 personality. After our trip to Philae temple Ahmed assisted me with my check in for my river cruise Le Fayan, thanks to Eid and Ahmed Refaey (owner of Happy tour) for arranging for me! The cruise was BEAUTIFUL! By the end of my tour, I requested for Ahmed to accompany me for a dinner outside, and he was such a gentleman who didn’t reject. He also brought me to a local market which was amazing! Back in Aswan again and throughout my sailing journey to Luxor, this was when I finally met Eid! This one is a keeper. Eid was warm and friendly and he made me feel like home. He is very detailed with his sharing of the temples. He even brought books that depicts the differences of how it used to be and how is it today. Hands down, he will ensure I will arrive early and before the crowd so that I can enjoy the tour. Not only that, as a guide, he takes amazing photos! I had one too many I had difficulties choosing which to post. By the end of the trip he made me felt like family! & yes he did accompany me for dinner too!! He introduced me to local cuisines. It was definitely a good cultural experience! Driver: Gaber, I met him on my last day in Luxor and he drove me to Hurghada. He made the 4-hr ride felt really short! Not once I got bored in the car. Not only that, his car was equipped with treats and drinks! Such hospitality! Both also helped me picked up my luggage from the river cruise while I was enjoying the hot air balloon ride. In Hurghada, I was mainly on my own most of the time. However I did went to Orange Bay that was arranged by the team and met a photographer, Adel Al Dodge, who clicks beautiful photos. Overall, Egypt was amazing thanks to the team that made it happen for me. Thanks to Eid Moawed and Ahmed Refaey for putting the itinerary for me and surprised me with the private ride to Hurghada. They were quick with response and were really accommodating. They are also able to work around your budget and recommend the best for you. And do consider yourself lucky if you get a combination of Eid and Gaber during your trip!

          A Nile dream in Dahabiya
          We booked a tour in Dahabiya from Aswan to Luxor. It was gorgeous. The boat was only for us. The crew, Mahmud the manager among them, was very obliging, the food was fantastic and the guide Mahmoud was an excellent archaeologist, very didactic and patient. We had a wonderful time with him, enjoying every moment. He selected the better places to see everything, he answered any question we did and always in good mood. I recommend this experience. Probably we will repeat with another part of the family.

          Unforgettable hot air balloon ride in Luxor.
          This was such a fun experience for my whole family. We were picked up early morning at 4:30 by the balloon company arranged by Ahmed our agency owner. What followed after that was a series of pickups and boat transfers on the Nile to go to the West Bank. The excitement was palpitating and we were in awe to see a collection of all hot air balloons getting ready to take off. It was an unforgettable experience to see the whole city and right at sunrise, the view was breathtaking. Am so glad we did this.

          Memorable highlights of Giza and Cairo
          When I was first researching tour agencies, Ahmed connected on WhatsApp and was able to provide information very quickly. We took a one-day tour that included the Giza pyramids and Sphinx statue, a camel ride, an Egyptian museum, and Coptic and Islamic Cairo. The Egyptologist Mohammed was very well versed in the history and gave our family a good background of the history of Egypt so we could follow along everywhere. He also took us to a papyrus and perfume factory that explained the ancient art of creating writing material and Egyptian perfume making. I was also surprised to know that the Holy Family lived in Egypt for 3 years a must-visit for Christians. Thank you for making our trip so memorable.

          Great Experience with Happy Egypt
          The trip with Happy Egypt from Luxor to Abu Simbel and back was very well organized, pleasant, safe and eventful. Our driver Gaber took great care of us, showed us the real Egypt and made our trip an unforgettable experience. He picked us up every day before sunrise and we were the first visitors to each attraction. This made our trip very special and we had a wonderful time.

          Will organized and prompt response
          When I started to plan the trip from Aswan to Luxor ( 4 days 3 nights cruise) , I got prompt response and quotation from Happy Egypt through whataspp, which facilitated me to make decision and planning. We chose the MS May Flower Cruise which accommodations are clean, new and tidy. The services on the cruise was excellent with helpful and friendly staff. I am provided with a very knowledgeable guide , Hany, who could introduce all the sightseeing points well and took care of us well. The trip to Abusimbel was unforgettable. The sail on Nile River with felucca was nice and enjoyable. We also booked additional trip to Nibican Village , where the beautiful colorful houses catched our eyes. The company also provided us a free wifi router.

          Spectacular Eygpt Custom Small Group Tour
          We were a group of eight, three couples and two friends. I started our planning the trip by getting quotes from several companies,but Ahmed was able to provide the best value for our group. We started our trip in Cairo and we're met at the airport where our visas were already in his hands and he was able to walk us through one of the long lines out to our driver who took us to the Cairo Marriott (last year we stayed at Marriott Mena House with Pyramid views). Saturday morning our driver Kareem and guide Yousseff took us to Giza Pyramid Complex, lunch and then the Eygpt Museum. Sunday we toured Islamic and Coptic Cairo, then lunch and shopping at KhanKhalily bazaars. Monday morning we flew to Luxor and we're met by our guide Mohammed Hasan. We toured Karnak Temple and then boarded our ship the MS Esmeralda to check in and have lunch. That evening we toured Luxor temple. Over the next four nights we were impressed by the knowledge that our guide, Mohammed Hasan gave us during the tours of the West bank of Luxor, Valley of the Kings, Hatshepsut Temple & Colossi of Memnon, Abu Simbel, Philadelphia Temple and Eygpt overall. All of our group was impressed with the quality of service, tour schedule and most of all our guides. Mohammed Hasan as an Egyptologist has 21 years of experience. One of the group members was in his third trip to Eygpt and said Mohammed was far superior than the other guides he had. From start to end everything was coordinated very well by Ahmed the owner of the agency. We really enjoyed the mobile hotspots he provided because it helped to stay connected. Can't wait for our next trip with them.

          Great organisation and tour guide
          We had a private 3-day tour around Luxor, Aswan and Abu Simbel. The organization was perfect and so was the guide, Mahmoud, who made sure we were enjoying it and provided many tips on places to visit and eat. Highly recommended!

        We were picked up at the hotel in a comfortable mini-van by our tour guide & Egyptologist Islam and the driver Khaled. Islam provided a lot of information about Egyptian history and took us to the West Bank to see the Valley of the Kings and on the East Bank the temples of Karnak & Luxor. The monuments themselves are majestic and we were in awe of what was built years ago. I liked that our agency provided a contract before our trip that explained all the things that would be covered and this made for a very smooth, stress free and enjoyable experience. Our family was in good hands and we learned a lot.
