I had planned a tour to Egypt with my wife, parents and younger brother. We got to know about Jana Day tours from a friend who already had traveled with them. So based on her recommendation we contacted Jana Day Tours and asked them to suggest an itinerary for us based on our interests.
Mr Mohamed was always very prompt with his responses over email. He answered all our queries whenever required.
Despite reports of unrest and other problems we remained in touch with Mr Mohamed and he assured us that the country is safe and we will not face any problems during our trip, and indeed we never faced any problems.
On arrival we were greeted by a representative from Jana Day Tours, he ensured we got our luggage and dropped us to the hotel.
All our accommodations were at nice places except for Sharm-el-Sheikh where the experience was not as great (for no fault of the Tour company) The cruise booked for us was the best and all my family members absolutely loved the Nile cruise experience.
Another great experience which we had was Desert Safari at White Desert, Mohamed arranged an overnight camp for my brother and I while my wife and parents were accommodated at a hotel in nearby Baharia Oasis. The entire camp setup was very nice and our Bedouin hosts were very gracious.
At Sharm el Sheikh, Mohamed also arranged scuba diving for us, as we were beginners he arranged an introductory session with a very professional company (Big Blue Dahab) we got a very nice instructor who tried to help my wife overcome her anxiety under water.
For all visits to monuments, we were guided by Mohamed (around Cairo) and Hossam (aswan, Kom Ombo, edfu and luxor) both are experts in the field of egyptology and explained the monuments in great detail.
Probably the only hiccups in our experience were a) they booked early morning flights for us which means we had to wake up between 4 and 5 in mornings to make it to the airport which became tiring especially for my old parents. b) We got very little time at Sharm due a change in cruise timings which we still regret.
Other than above we had a very nice experience with Mr Mohamed and his team and we would recommend them to our friends if/when they plan to visit Egypt.
