Recently went w/ a large tour group of 60 people to visit various historic sites in Egypt. Mohammed & his mother as well as Rafaat were absolutely the best guides & expediters. We always felt very safe & well looked after plus they were so gracious & kind in keeping our large group together which was akin to herding cats. They even helped us negotiate w/ the various venders who formed a gauntlet near the sites. Honestly, we all would have looked more & bought more if the venders didn’t fall on us relentlessly. I sensed a lot of behind the scenes work on part of the guides- security was excellent as well. Would very highly recommend Guardian for encyclopedic knowledge of history as well as keeping us so well informed as to schedules, etc.

Adel, our tour guide, was amazing! The information he shared was very thorough, he answered all our questions very well. He is an amazing Egyptologist. We look forward to recommending him to all family and friends. He also took the time to go above and beyond for us, when we requested to take photos with our cellphones. He did a great job with recording my actual proposal to my partner, which was one of the biggest moments of my life. I can't say enough good things about him, he is an incredible tour guide and human being! 10 out of 10 stars

Guardian Tours created a memorable trip of a lifetime. Every detail was carefully planned, smooth, hassle free and comprehensive. Our, guide Rafaat was excellent. Mohammed and his team were with us for every step of the tour. They responded quickly and efficiently to questions and concerns. I would highly recommend this company for individual and group tours in Egypt. Traveling with a group of over 60 people went off without a hitch. Kudos to an amazing and expert team!

I recently booked a Nile cruise through Guardian and highly regret it. The cruise itself was nice and service was good but Guardian massively ripped me off with the total price of the trip. After speaking to other people on the cruise, I found out that I paid almost 50% more than they did. Also, to top it off, I was originally supposed to be in the cheapest room type (although I had already paid too much) and the ship crew upgraded me. I wasn't offered the same types of extra excursions that my shipmates were and when I wanted to join them, I was told that I had to book through Guardian travel. It was annoying to not have the same opportunities and even when I was given excursion options, they were extremely expensive.

Finally I complained and demanded a free excursion on my last day, which I received but by that point, so much of my trip had been stressful and frustrating. Overall, it was not a good experience.

Hello, It is true that you paid almost 50% more than other travelers on board the Nile Cruse as you had a SINGLE CABIN and single cabins cost almost 50% more than double cabins. Please bear in mind that you were a solo traveler and all fees get divided upon 1 traveler. Guide, transportation, taxes and other fees. You used the Sonesta Nile Cruises and they are one of the best cruises on the Nile. Nile Cruises in Egypt don't have different room categories as big cruise liners. Quoting from Sonesta website: "There are 49 standard cabins with sliding glass doors opening to private balconies and 4 Presidential Suites with private lounges." As you see the cruise has 49 standard cabins and 4 suites, no other categories of rooms as you claim you got upgraded. Your excursions were arranged by the Sonesta Nile Cruises and you visited ALL the sites as per your itinerary. Karnack temples, Luxor temple, Valley of the Kings, Queen Hatshipsut’s temple, Memnon Colossi, Edfu temple, Kom Ombo temple, Phalie temple, the unfinished obelisk, Felucca ride and the Aswan high dam. Those are ALL the sites that any traveler sees along the Nile. You didn’t want to go to Abu Simbel. Kindly note that you were a single person and you got private transfers from your Cairo hotel to Cairo airport, Aswan airport to Nile Cruise and from the Nile Cruise to Luxor airport. I hope this clarify everything for you.

As you may imagine, for weeks before my trip to Egypt people were telling me I was crazy to travel there because of how unsafe they thought it would be. My travel agent mother was much happier when she spoke to Mohammed at Guardian Travel and could tell that they were a high level professional company she could trust (we have done MANY tours around the world, and my mom is very knowledgable of travel to that area of the world).

As far as safety goes, i could not have felt more safe in Egypt - I will absolutely be back there soon - the people in Egypt were incredibly kind and inviting, and we felt very welcome everywhere we went (even as a bunch of blondes from Los Angeles!). I did not feel at any point that my safety was compromised. I encourage everyone to go visit this magnificent country!

I cannot express with words how much we enjoyed our 2 week trip around Egypt, and how important a part of that Guardian played. We had 5 people from Guardian traveling with our group of 79 people, so we saw each of them handle many situations that arose. I was continuously impressed with their level of professionalism and service - and compassion for people's (sometimes) over-the-top requests - they were patient and understanding with our big group.

Also, the knowledge level of our guides could not be matched - truly they were that good. Our group had Rafat, and he amazed us with his explanations at each site we visited, as well as his ability to answer our questions. It made the trip so much more enjoyable to hear Rafat's stories about each of the sites and towns we went into as well as his explanations about cultural norms.

I encourage everyone to go see Egypt, as it is a spectacular trip of a lifetime. I also encourage everyone I speak with to use Guardian as their travel company, as that will ensure a safe, easy, maximally enjoyable trip. This trip is not to be missed!

My wife and I went to Egypt at the beginning of August. We can't say enough nice things about Guardian! From the minute we landed in Cairo until we departed our experience was first class! Mohammed, Abdullah and our tour guide Nivine were absolutely a pleasure to travel and work with. Since we were only in country for 1 week a lot of our sight seeing schedule was booked in a small amount of time. However, everything was perfectly arranged and we never felt like there was a rush to do anything. Our favorite part was the motor boat trip to the Temple of Philae. Nivine was extremely knowledgeable and she really made the temple and all of our tours exciting and entertaining.

Before we went a lot of our family and friends thought why would you go to Egypt? Isn't it dangerous? But after spending a week there, I can definitely say we felt safer in Egypt than we would in some American cities. Everyone we encountered was friendly and very welcoming.

Overall, I would recommend traveling to Egypt and definitely doing it with the help of Guardian Travel! To Mohammed and his staff you have our sincerest gratitude for a wonderful vacation.

I traveled to Egypt for the first time with Guardian Travel. Everything about the trip went so smoothly.This family-owned business has decades of experience and are well-respected and well-connected throughout the country. They handle all of the details so you can have the trip of a lifetime. Mohammed and his professional tour guides are the best. I would travel with them again, no question.

Guardian Travel exceeded every one of my expectations on a recent 12 day trip to Egypt. They organized the perfect vacation, going above and beyond to make sure people had the ultimate experience. From Mohammad to the tour guides, everyone was helpful, extremely knowledgeable, and very personable. By the end the trip everyone on tour had the same reaction - this trip was one of the best vacations they had ever been on and would highly recommend Guardian to anyone traveling to Egypt.

The tour guide, the company owner and the security guards made my visit to Egypt incredible and safe. It was very festive to watch the Sphinx light show from the owner's balcony. They own their own bus and employ their own driver. There was security with us at all times. I loved the market in Cairo. We were escorted and the prices were negotiated for us. I loved the mummies. I loved the 5 star accomodations. And I loved the knowledge and passion shared with me and my group. I too was part of Dr. Mitry's group of 21. It was so enjoyable I want to go back to Egypt. But only with the Gardian Group! AWESOME GROUP.
