My husband and I have lived in Egypt for several years now and seen many, many places and sites, but our best experiences have, hands down, been when we booked Samir Abbass to organize our tours and take us around. Samir has personally guided my our family to the Pyramids at Giza and Saqqara, around Alexandria, and to Aswan and Abu Simbel. He's an Egyptologist and very knowledgeable about the history of his country, but he doesn't let the tours get too bogged down or heavy with dates and minutia. His English is excellent and he deals with foreigners in a comfortable way. He's prompt to pick you up at your hotel and makes the most of your tour days as well. We have also used Samir's services to arrange a 4 day trip to Luxor. He wasn't free to guide us himself during our dates, but he arranged for one of his colleagues (Mo'Men, who was also excellent) to show us around. We were traveling with a baby and had lots of needs (shorter tour days during specific times, hotel rooms that connected, etc), and he organized all of those details for us, while ensuring that we saw all of the best sites in Luxor.
I highly recommend Samir and his team if you want an organized trip that shows you the best of Egypt's ancient sites, as well as gives you a glimpse of modern Egyptian life and culture.
