We sailed into Alexandria on NCL's Jade and were greeted at the port by our excellent guide, Hanni. After a 3 hour hectic drive, we arrived at the famous Great Pyramid in Giza. What an experience. With our excellent guide leading the way, we were able to see and do all that we expected without interference from vendors and camel drivers. Seeing the pyramids and the Sphinx were quite the revelation, and the visit afterward to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo filled in the gaps of knowledge - showing us what has been removed from many of these tombs. What a day! And then we went on an evening cruise on the Nile!

Going to Alexandria - especially now after the regime change and the desperate need for foreigners to see this amazing country - Mohamed Yousef of Ramses Travel was an extra treat. Knowledgeable, sense of humour and easy going. Exactly the type of guide that you like to have when visiting a country or city for the first time. Now we can say we did see Alexandria, though we will go back for sure. An amazing place, with room for many voices, a country full of powerful women and soaked in high culture. Thank you Mohamed!

Our guide, Mimmot, from Ramses Tours was informative, organized and personable. He gave us a whirlwind tour of Cairo-the Egyptian Museum, the pyramids, the laser and light show, etc all in two days. He was knowledgeable about all that we saw and did. He was organized with water and snacks, tickets for the museum and show (so we did not have to wait on line), and even had good, clean restaurants and bathrooms available for our use. We saw more in those two days than we ever thought was possible. It was an experience none of us will ever forget. Our party of four highly recommend Mimmot as a guide along with Ramses Tours.

We booked 3 tours including a Nile dinner cruise with Ramses tours over the internet for a family of 4. We found Ramses to be professional and very helpful when booking. Any request was not a problem. We exchanged a number of emails and Ramses was always quick to respond. We had a great driver and tour guide Our tour guide was Waleed Abd Elfatah Elakbawy. Waleed was just fantastic! He is a young and energetic professional guide and he is an Egyptologist. His knowledge is huge. He speaks fluent English and he was always so easy to understand. He did everything he could to make our tour very memorable and easy. He was always on time and briefed us on what we would be doing. Waleed definitely has a passion for his work and he enjoys his job very much. We highly recommend Waleed as a wonderful English speaking tour guide. You can contact Waleed at w_abd1988@yahoo.com

We used Ramses tours in both Alexandria and Cairo (out of Pt Said)on our cruise to the Eastern Mediterranean. They were excellent and an outstanding value for the price. Both guides were extremely knowledgeable. We toured all the places we wanted to see plus more. Ramses Tours was particularly sensitive to our concerns for safety and sanitation. They took us to clean bathrooms everywhere! George, the owner, is a delightful young man and was very responsible to all our questions prior to the trip. Shirley, CA
