Egypt Tailor Made is highly recommended. We had contacted the agency a month before our trip, for them to arrange for a week's private tour to Cairo and Luxor for myself and my mother. We had the privillege of having Mr. Walid handle our booking and trip planning, where he rendered invaluable assistance before as well as during the trip in real time.

Our guide, Mr. Sabry was excellent. He is experienced and is genuinely interested in our interests and what we are hoping to achieve on our trip. Once we met him, we knew we were in good hands, as he would take into account our preferences and interests when planning our days together while also being very flexible with the itinerary.

His in depth knowledge of Egypt, its history, as well as its modern day issues was refreshing, as he was able to engage with us on a variety of topics which often strayed far from the typical tour guide's script. He was also able to help us avoid crowds, and ensure that everything was absolutely seamless from start to finish.

If you're looking for a guided tour that exceeds expectations, go with Egypt Tailor Made. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone who is coming to visit Egypt.

We spent 2 weeks in Egypt under the care of Egypt Tailor Made. From being met upon our arrival and expertly guided through the airport and customs, to our last ride to the airport to head home, we were always in good hands. All of our guides and drivers were completely professional and willing to accommodate our wishes in every way possible. Beginning in Cairo our team of Ahmed Zaky and Shabaan, escorted us all around the Cairo area , managing to navigate the traffic challenges. Ahmed was very knowledgeable about all of the sites and was very thorough in explaining the history and meaning of each site. Thanks to Ahmed and Shabaan, we were introduced to Ful and Baladi!

From Cairo, we moved to upper Egypt and met with our new team of Ahmed Aziz and our driver Ahmed Zacky. Once again, completely professional and diligent in guiding us through all of the wonderful sites. Ahmed Aziz was very adept at determining the best times to visit each site to optimize our time and avoid the crowds a huge advantage! Our driver Ahmed Zaky was a careful patient driver - even on some long drives. He also taught us to say “big wow”! And thanks to Ahmed Aziz, we now have enough spices to last a year - what a fun experience! He also coached us on the appropriate tipping policies. The team was so considerate in taking us to a pharmacy for cold medicine and to a supermarket to pick up other supplies.

Both teams were so willing to answer our many questions and patiently waited while we took endless pictures. We learned so much about the everyday life of Egyptian families and enjoyed the pictures and stories they shared about their own families.

We would highly recommend Egypt Tailor Made to everyone and feel that we have made friends for life.

Egpyt Tailor Made Tours was one of the best organizations we have ever taken a tour with. Walid provided an immediate response to our request for a custom, private 2 day tour of Cairo for 5 people with a proposed itinerary and cost. The tour included the Pyramids/Sphinx, Egyptian Museum, Khan el Khalili Bazar, Islamic Cairo, Coptic Cairo, Cave Church and Al Azhar park.

Heba gave us one of the best tours ever. She was very enthusiastic about sharing her incredible knowledge of the city and its history, entertaining and funny, very accommodating of all requests and patient with all our questions. But it was more than just a tour. It was a great educational experience about the history of many amazing places, the various religions and life in Egypt.

We usually like to plan and organise our trips by ourselves, but for our trip to Egypt we went with Egypt Tailor Made and we had a great experience. From the welcome at the airport to the guided tours and local tips from our tour guides, we felt really listened to and taken care of.

Sabry and Mohamed made us feel immediately welcome for our first day in Cairo. They understood that we like to explore the local food scene and gave us great recommendations for good spots to have meals. Our guide Sabry customised our tour to what we were interested in and let us decide on how we wanted to shape our day.
The same team accompanied us for multiple days and also came with us to the black and white desert. It was nice to go with people we already knew to the desert, that contributed to a nice atmosphere around the bonfire. We really appreciated how Sabry went out of his way to get us vegetarian food for the barbecue in the middle of the desert. For anyone, like me, that might be worried about insects in the desert, I can confirm it is safe ;)

Down in Luxor and Aswan we had a great time roadtripping with our Egyot Tailor Made team Ayman and Mohamed. In addition to the typical sights, we had a chance to explore the local coffee shops and falafel places recommended by our guides. Ayman picked us up in a great mood every morning and always had some candies or cookies for us try. Mohamed patiently drove us all across the country and was very attentive to making us feel comfortable.

All in all, we had a great time with each member of Egypt Tailor Made that we met. What we liked about Egypt Tailor Made in comparison to "typical" travel agencies was having enough flexibility to choose our hotels, the way we wanted to shape the agenda of our days and when to have free days in between organisied activities, all with the benefit of not having to worry about how to get from one place to another and getting the best tips and advice from our guides. I'd recommend to anyone who likes to keep some independance on an organised trip to book with them :)

First, it’s important to know that even walking the streets of Cairo alone or with your spouse, is very safe regardless of what others may have told you or warned you about. Every night after our tour, we would head out and explore a new area and have dinner at a restaurant and we were never “bothered, pick pocketed, hassled”. The Egyptian people are lovely people and for some, tourism is their only source of income. I urge you to travel to Egypt.

Second, my husband and I booked Egypt Tailor Made tours (for 6 full days) because we liked the idea of having a local guide, Egyptologist, that is educated in everything egypt to educate us on their country’a history because we knew we wouldn’t be able to do that on our own. But what we ended up with was an amazing Egyptologist with an amazing personality and even better, a friend :). Heba from Egypt Tailor Made went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with the itinerary for the day and she explained things so well and with such enthusiasm you never got bored. Her jokes were very funny and her personality and passion for ancient Egyptian history amazed me. She is a very smart female with a very kind and beautiful heart who we started to miss dearly when we got home. Her knowledge on everything Egypt was amazing. From ancient Egyptian civilization (she knew every detail) to Coptic a Egyptian history, to Islamic history and architecture. She was also very helpful in giving us tips on where to go for dinner and the areas to explore after the tours were completed.

Our itinerary was extensive and I wish we spent more time in Egypt. We went to Saqqara, Giza pyramids, Coptic Cairo, Islamic mosques and all their glory and beauty, Khan el Khalili, Alexandria for a day, Mohamad Ali Mosque and Citadel, Islamic Museum, National Museum of Egypt, Gayer-Anderson Museum and house, Ancient civilization museum.

Our driver Mohammed navigated us through all these areas so peacefully and with such great timing, despite the surrounding traffic. (Which I thought navigating through Cairo traffic in itself was fun and amusing). Mohamed even pointed out some note worthy structures and areas as well. We always felt safe with Mohammed and Heba.

So, in sum, we are avid travelers from the US my husband and I and we loved Cairo, Egypt the most of all our traveling. If you’re planning your next vacation and want to stumble upon hundreds and hundreds of ancient treasures book a trip to Egypt. If you book a trip to Egypt, make sure you book your tours with local guide, Heba from Egypt Tailor Made.

Amazing trip with ETM

From my first email to the company, which was answered promptly and comprehensively, to our final days in Aswan and Luxor with the amazing Ahmed Aziz, ETM helped make our Egypt trip informative and enjoyable. We were two parents and two adult children and we covered Cairo, Aswan, Abu Simbel, Luxor, and Dendera in 7 days. ETM handled all our airport transfers and guides professionally, and were truly great in responding to my emails with questions and itinerary updates. We booked late (end of October for a December visit) and I felt fortunate that we were able to see everything we wanted to; due to limited flights between Cairo, Aswan and Luxor we ended up driving from Aswan to Luxor with ETM, which made it all possible. Our cars and drivers were all excellent, and I appreciated that ETM created a What’sApp group for the entire family along with ETM staff once we had paid our deposit. It was an excellent tool for communicating while we were in Egypt.

Our Cairo guide was good and made sure we covered all of the sites we had requested, including a few that were not part of the standard itinerary. He pushed a little too hard to get us to visit the papyrus shop, but eventually took no for an answer. Airport pickup in Cairo was also a little disorganized, but everything worked out.

After Cairo, we flew to Aswan and met Ahmed Aziz, and we spent the next five days with him. This was the highlight of our trip, hands down. Ahmed is a true professional; his love of his country and of ancient Egypt showed in his enthusiastic and comprehensive explanations to all the sites. His good humor never flagged, even with two very early days to drive to Abu Simbel and from Aswan to Luxor. We thoroughly enjoyed his company. His suggestions were excellent, too: He took us for lunch and a tour of the Aswan’s not-touristy Nubian Village (there is a touristy one), which was really great. And when we had some extra time in Luxor, he recommended that we visit Dendarra Temple, and I’m so glad he did. It’s an extraordinary site, and was a lovely way to end our trip. He also recommended a great restaurant for lunch — Africa.

We’ve traveled all over the world and worked with lots of guides, and Ahmed Aziz is one of the best. Egypt can be overwhelming and Ahmed made things seamless in so many ways — moving through lines to purchase our tickets at sites, arranging for our boat transport, advising when tips were appropriate and when they weren’t necessary — all of which meant that we could save our energy to truly enjoy our experience.

I highly recommend ETM and in particular Ahmed Aziz.

Me and my wife tend to travel independently, however I can’t emphasise enough the requirement of an Egyptologist whilst visiting the ancient sites of Egypt. It is really not the same without them and they are worth every penny.

We booked 3 days of private guided tours with Egypt Tailor Made Tours over a period of a week. This included a morning visit to the pyramids, a tour of Luxor West Bank and a day exploring Cairo’s Egyptian Museum and the Islamic quarter.

From the start communication was easy with Esraa, our booking consultant, over WhatsApp with all requests quickly answered and honest recommendations were made. The guides also messaged us the day before our trips to confirm meeting times and locations.

Leila, our Egyptologist and guide in Cairo/Giza was fantastic. Her knowledge and enthusiasm about this great culture was captivating. She was very warm and welcoming and also really helped us find our feet on our first day in a new country whilst also ensuring that we were well prepared for the rest of our solo travels across Egypt. It was great to see her again on our return leg for the museum and Islamic quarter.

Hassan, our Egyptologist in Luxor, was also excellent. Again his knowledge and story telling was exceptional and also helped us learn a small amount of Arabic to deal with the ‘tourist hawks’ at the sites.

The tour company also provides very safe drivers with decent vehicles. We didn’t once feel unsafe or end up in an awkward situation throughout our entire time in Egypt.

The sites themselves are amazing, the pyramids are breath taking and the tombs and temples of Luxor are exceptional. The tomb of Queen Nefertari is worth the high price tag. The best tomb by far and no one else in it. With the exception of the usual tourist traps and vendors at the sites I can’t fault anything with them. Many people complain about these, but they are at every major tourist site on the planet! Just ignore them, or learn some phrases to make them laugh and they soon disappear.

I would highly recommend using Egypt Tailor Made for all your Egypt travel needs.

My girlfriend and I spent the last 6 days between Aswan and Luxor with our guide, Mansour, and the experience was amazing! Mansour was super friendly and knowledgeable about all aspects of ancient egyptian history, recent history, as well as present day issues. Having a single highly educated Egyptologist during our time in southern Egypt was excellent bc we were able to build on our conversations throughout the week, and we never had to worry about meeting/finding the next tour guide. Mansour really made our experience here 10/10 and we highly recommend him to anyone considering booking a tour, whether it is 1 day or a week plus!

April 21, 2021 - For those concerned about COVID, we would like to mention that both Mansour and our driver wore their masks for the entirety of our time together, and provided us with hand sanitizer everytime we got into the car. We felt very safe the entire time with respect to COVID as well as safe in general. Our car was a new Toyota SUV with excellent air conditioner and was always stocked with drinking water. It was over 100 degrees most days, so it was nice to have a new car with strong AC! They also installed a thick curtain on the windows which was super nice as we could limit or completely block out the sun.

You can almost definitely save money if you piecemeal your trip together, but we found the peace of mind we received by working with the top rated company was absolutely worth the few extra dollars. We suggest doing the same and you will enjoy your time on Egypt, as we did. Things here can be a bit hectic, so having a strong team to hold your hand from start to finish was worth every cent in our experience!

As for a COVID test to leave the country - checkout the Children's Cancer Hospital in Cairo. This is where we plan to go in the coming days to get a PCR test. No appt necessary, roughly a 24hr turn around from what we've read and only 800egp per test.

We have never used a tour company in the past because we do not like large groups or getting stuck in the tourist traps but at the last minute decided to hire a private guide through Egypt Tailor Made. They gave us many options on what to do with our two weeks in Egypt just days before landing.My husband and I were traveling with our five-month-old daughter and we were able to pick and choose what we wanted to do and having a private guide it’s some thing I would recommend for everybody because egypt’s history is fascinating and can be overwhelming without a knowledgeable guide. Heba was our guid in Cairo, and we absolutely loved her. She gave us the highlights on every tour and made us feel feel very comfortable to ask questions about everything. She was also an amazing iPhone photographer, and set up creative shots for us. I cannot speak more highly about this company, they accommodated us the entire time in Egypt and responded via WhatsApp within minutes if I had questions . They helped us avoid the tourist traps, bargain with the Bazaar shop owners, and find local cuisine which was high on our list. Having a private driver was also a first for us, we usually rent a car And are used to driving in other countries, however we were also very happy with having a driver because there are many checkpoints, road closures, and traffic jams which were more rapidly navigated with a local driver, this is probably the only country I have traveled to this far that I would recommend a driver and highly recommend a private guide. Egypt Tailor Made lived up to its great reputation.

We utilized this company for private tours throughout Egypt. Omar, the operations manager, was very helpful in assisting us to craft an itinerary that included all of the sites we wanted to see. Communication was excellent via email and WhatsApp. They provided English-speaking guides, all of which were excellent, and competent drivers for each leg of the journey. They were able to navigate all the constraints of Egyptian security to facilitate smooth entry to the tourist sites and provided ample historic facts to supplement our experience. Drivers and guides were always prompt and used their knowledge of the local environment to improve the logistics of our tours. In Cairo, we especially felt secure with Mustafa as our driver as he skillfully maneuvered the challenges of the congested streets. Laila was superb in guiding us through four days in Cairo. Her breadth and depth of knowledge were impressive. We also enjoyed the skills of Mohammed as he led us through the sites of Alexandria and Abdul explained the wonders of Aswan and Abu Simbel. We would highly recommend this company if you want to personalize your experiences in Egypt.
