We just returned from the 4 night Cairo plus 4 night Nile cruise tour. As a manufacturing and quality manager I cannot overstate how impressed I was with the Blue Sky Travel Group. The logisitics of coordinating multiple clients flying different airlines at different times, and scheduling around the challenging traffic of Cairo, would be daunting to even the most experienced logistics officer. Blue Sky Travel pulled it off with military precision, always accented with friendly smiles and Zen like patience.

As for the trip, top quality, sparkly clean accomodations, excellent food of wide variety, and over the top tours repeatedly left us looking at each other with jaws dropped in appreciation and amazement. Blue Sky left NOTHING to chance, and we were escorted from the time we got off the plane (BEFORE baggage and customs!) until entering the departure check-in.

As for Egypt, this was my second trip after thirty five years, and with age I could much more deeply appreciate the amazing, one of a kind sites. While we loved our jam packed tour, we had little opportunity to interact with the local folks, but everyone we did meet was warm and welcoming. Since returning we get asked "did you feel safe?" which surprised us because the thought never crossed our mind during the trip.

An Egypt tour with Nile cruise was part of the Grand Africa Tour we booked with Travel Discounters, Toronto, Ontario. They use Blue Sky for the Eqypt tours they schedule. From arrival in Cairo, Blue Sky was exceptional to deal with. We were assisted at the airport by Bob, who helpted with the visa and maneuvering through the airport. He assisted us with hotel checkin as well. The following day we had a tour in Cairo with our Egyptologist, Kareem Shemis. He did an amazing job throughout our entire time in Egypt. Our company assistant throught out our visit was Kareem Kordy, another top notch ally. We felt safe and catered to the entire 8 days. I have never had a tour company exceed my expectations as Blue Sky did. Kudos to Blue Sky for a job well done!

Rehab, Kareem and Hamada gave our family of 7 an experience of a lifetime. They joyfully managed a group ranging in age from 25 to 90 and made everything fun. The Swiss Pyramids Inn in Cairo was nice. The beds were hard and lots of weddings. The food was great. Marriott Hurghada was a great facility with good food and stunning view. Semiramis 3 was okay accommodation and food but good value for money. Thanks for the wonderful memories!

Most of our issues about our trip to Egypt came from the Company called Travel Discounters, whom we booked our trip with.
Blue Sky is an Egyptian Company who actually conduct the tour. We do not recommend using Travel Discounters as we don't feel they are a reputable Company. You can read our story on the Travel Discounters
facebook page under reviews. We did have some issues with Blue Sky but we will still recommend using them as we feel that they honestly were trying to make our trip a good one. I actually would recommend booking directly with them instead of going through Travel Discounters. In short, Travel Discounters wanted to make giving us a $400 credit for something they messed up contingent on us we taking down a true but negative review of their Company. We refused. Egypt had been on our travel list for years. The people are very welcoming of tourists, especially from USA.
We did feel safe at all times. Covid precautions were evident everywhere. Be aware that vendors selling souvenirs at the sites you will visit can be very aggressive in trying to sell something to you. After a while this can be tiring. We were in Egypt for almost 2 weeks. So overall, take the trip, just be careful of who you use to get there.

We booked a trip through Travelzoo with Travel Discounters/Blue Sky Travel Group for the Nile Cruise called The Best of Egypt. Luxor-Aswan on the MS/Semiramis III ship. The ship is old and not well insulated but our room was okay. We had a large window which was great while on the Nile, but while docked a couple of times next to other cruise ships, we realized that the windows were not sealed, or the vents were open, and the diesel fuel smell was horrible. The ship staff was very nice, in our opinion. The food was average. The guides were awesome. One of the unfortunate excursions to the Edfu Temple was horse/carriage transportation to the Temple - I have to plead that if your travel booking includes this as transportation, please ask for an alternate way to get there. These horses are abused and neglected, whipped and mistreated while you ride in the carriage. Some travelers say not to tip the drivers but the solution is more about doing away with this transportation altogether! Research for yourself if you need to...

My husband and I just returned from Egypt, (5/3/201 to 5/12/21,) a trip we booked through Travel Discounters and the tour company they booked us with was Blue Sky. From start to the very end, Blue Sky representatives guided us through airport arrivals in Cairo and Aswan, to our departures, hotel check in and check outs, Nile cruise check in /out. The drivers were courteous and most importantly, the guides (Egyptologists in their own right) had a passion for the history of their country. Our guide in Cairo, Tawfik Elshaer (Tut), was so knowledgeable and made the experience an intimate one for my husband and I. Any changes we needed to make; he was more than happy to accommodate us. Our guide in Luxor and Aswan, Saber Hamed Al Hagagy, was also extremely knowledgeable. I can describe this trip as one of our favorites!! Now is the time to visit Egypt as crowds are small. Shout outs to Tut and Saber and Thank you, to both!!

My daughter and I just returned from a Best of Egypt trip with Blue Sky Travel, which we booked through Travel Discounters. This was the trip of a lifetime and the team from Blue Sky Travel was amazing to work with.

Traveling down the Nile with our Egyptologist, Kareem Zohny Shemis was educational and fun. Kareem understood how to bring the history and local culture to life and was an outstanding guide for our adventure. Ashraf ensured that all of our needs were accommodated during the cruise.

Not only did we experience the major historical highlights during the tour, but we also enjoyed a camel ride, a carriage ride and a felucca trip.

The Cairo team of Sahar (Egyptologist) and Abdul were also terrific. Throughout our adventures, Blue Sky made traveling easy. I would highly recommend Blue Sky for seeing Egypt.

We booked Egypt tour that was facilitated by Blue Sky. We had an amazing experience, starting at the Cairo Airport where we were expedited through all the entry and security check points. We were guided through the Cairo sites by Abul, who provided a great history lesson of the area. Afterwards, we boarded the Semirameses III for 4 night Nile cruise. Staff on board were very helpful and a lot of fun to be around. Ship had all the facilities we could ask for, very pleasant experience. Our guide for the Nile portion, Kareem, was extremely knowledgeable, provided so much information and had an amazing passion for the history here. Overall our trip was everything we could ask for and far exceeded our expectations.

We had an incredible trip! Adult was waiting for us and took us to our hotel, where he checked us in and exchanged Egyptian pounds. Our Egyptologists Abul II and Kareem were very knowledgeable and made our tours fun. Our 4 day Nile cruise on the Semirameses III was the highlight. Staff on board were exceptional . The ship was clean and facilities on board were very good. Overall we would highly recommend Blue Sky for any vacation in Egypt

Thank you, Blue Sky Travel Group and Travel Discounters, for a trip of a lifetime! I cannot say enough about the experience on our Best of Egypt tour in September 2021. Everything was amazing and our experience with Egyptologist Kareem Zohny Shemis on our Nile cruise was the best. Touring the tombs and sights with him as our guide was a special experience. Ashraf ensured that our Nile cruise was smooth and all of the details well handled. Our Egyptologist in Cairo, Sahar, was also amazing. After looking forward to this tour for two and a half years, the experience was better than we expected -- thanks to all of the Blue Sky team and an excellent itinerary. Highly recommend.
