We were lucky enough to have Mahmoud Hassan as our tour guide for our Aswan and Luxor portion of the trip. Mahmoud is a wonderful person, who really wants his guests to enjoy their time in Egypt. He understood what we wanted, got to know us, and offered suggestions he knew we would appreciate. Some specific highlights (of which there are many) include: - Eating breakfast with the locals, having traditional Egyptian breakfast - Giving us extra information about temples and sites where we wanted to know more - Offering us free time to explore and take pictures where he understood we wanted to - Chatting about life, philosophy, culture, learning during the transit times - Making sure we always were getting a fair deal - Being very knowledgeable about the ancient Egyptian history, but delivering it in a manner which was engaging and entertaining Most important of all, we felt like we were travelling with a friend who knew a lot about Egypt. He didn't feel like a tour guide, he felt like one of our group. Could not recommend Mahmoud highly enough - just be genuine and honest with him, and he will look after you.

I never write TripAdvisor reviews, but I wanted to this time because I was so impressed by our experience with CET and their tour guides. We were lucky enough to have Mahmoud as our guide in Aswan and Luxor to take us around to the amazing Egyptian historical sites. He was very knowledgeable as he is an Egyptologist who studied masters in Egyptian history and works at extraction sites when he’s not being an awesome tour guide. He was able to deliver the knowledge with stories to capture our attention and tends to challenge some views accepted by historians and provide both views to let us come to our own conclusions. In addition to knowing his history, he was also very kind, funny, playful, caring and very attentive to our needs on the tour. As we didn’t go out to the streets on our own much, he would go and buy us anything we needed such as medicine from the pharmacy. He ordered local Egyptian food for us everyday (it would be a struggle on our own unless we knew Arabic) and took us to eat in at an authentic breakfast restaurant which was a great experience. I definitely missed him calling us habibi (the name he gives us as a group meaning “darling”) and his joking around when his part of the tour ended! In Cairo we had a different tour guide Amir for a day who was also very nice and focused on squeezing us to all the main pyramid sites before they closed at 4pm with the short time we had. Everyone wants photos at the great pyramids of Giza and Amir is your man for being a 5 star personal photographer. After his explanations he knows where to take photos for you and even guides you on how to pose in front of the pyramids. Both guides and all the drivers from CET were great, they were all people with good hearts who only cared that you had a good experience and would help you avoid getting ripped off or sold by those on the streets which to me is the most important thing. I’ve experienced another tour guide for Jordan who gave us no history explanations, wasn’t as friendly and always took us to touristy restaurants with high prices. So having experienced a few of these tours I would highly recommend CET for Egypt and anywhere else they do tours

My group of 5 would like to thank Cleopatra tours for delivering on their promises and giving us a great experience in Luxor. Salah was our driver and on one of the days, he stopped along the road, walked over to the sugarcane harvest, and brought us fresh sugarcane grown along the Nile. As an Asian living in the region where this drink is common, this way of enjoying sugarcane has been lost and it was the best tasting one I had in my life. Through Cleopatra, we got Mahmoud the tour guide for our Luxor trip. He gives presentations at Cairo university and is involved in parts of the restoration work of tombs and temples. There is really nothing more to say about his knowledge…. But what I personally appreciated was that he challenges Egypt’s recorded history texts on its truths. This is a great trait for any historian. Because our schedule was not hectic, and Mahmoud’s home was open at the time, he invited us to his home for breakfast made from his family owned restaurant. Honestly best food I had while in Egypt. To top it off, very humorous guy who can take decent pictures. He might dispute my assessment of his pictures. That’s a conversation to have again when we get to tour with Mahmoud and Salah again 😊 I typically do not like tours (been in tours in 3 China cities, 2 in USA, Australia) but this private tour was the best I have experienced.

Everyone keeps using the word awesome, but it's true. It was the most awesome trip, much in part with CET! We LOVED our guide and all that he did for us -- We spent 4 days with Mohamed and truly miss him! Extremely knowledgeable, kind, caring, funny & professional. We can't recommend Nile Holiday Tours enough if you are thinking of visiting Egypt! Thanks to Nile CET, to the general manage Massimo and to the friendly and professional tourist guides & drivers in Cairo/Luxor/and Aswan YOU all did a great job.
