We were put in touch with Amr by a colleague of mine who recommended this company. He was absolutely right, our holiday was tailored to fit exactly what we wanted to see and adjusted by email over the weeks before we travelled.We had texts from Amr to welcome us as soon as we arrived in Egypt and he rang us on the boat on our first night. We had already booked a week long cruise up the Nile with Cosmos and then flew up to Cairo for 3 nights in the second week where Amr and Amir met us on our first night and took us on a surprise visit to an authentic Tanoura show in Cairo. I would thoroughly recommed this, it involved authentic whirling dervishes, musicians and singers, not the ones the tourists get to see on the boat !! During our stay in Cairo we were taken to all the pyramids etc but not only that, we experienced a little bit of real Egypt - including Old Cairo,Cairo roads and Cairo driving ! Our Egyptologist Amir was so knowledgeable - no wonder his friends in Luxor call him the Professor ! He took us round the Egyptian Museum which is a must otherwise we could have spent days in there and still not seen the best bits. We then flew to Luxor for 4 nights where we met our other guide Mostafa. Mostafa also took us around to all the fantastic places we wanted to visit such as Abydos and Dendara but also put up with taking us to the Souk to do a little haggling and have a meal in a local restaurant and visit a little "sheesha" cafe. Our trip to Banana island at sunset on our last night left us with beautiful lifelong memories.
My tip from experience would be to let Amr organise it all for you, if we hadn't already booked through Cosmos he would have picked us up at the airport and taken us to the hotel etc and probably advised us what was worth seeing in which order. We always felt 100% safe with Amr, Amir and Mostafa and we really got the feeling that they love their job and that is was very important to them that we had a fantastic holiday and got the most out of their beautiful and interesting country.We can honestly say it was one of the best holidays we have ever had thanks to that personal touch.

I can not thank "lonely egypt" enough for making us feel so special and taking care of us from the moment we landed until leaving. Everything was very well organize, i could not fault it at all.
Amr and his team spoke excellent english, and their knowledge on their customized tours was very informative,excellent in fact. Felt very safe and comfortable with all of them.
I really can not fault them, they will do anything to help you and make your trip a truly memorable experience, they do make you feel like a VIP.
whatever the trip you are planning I 100% recommend using "Lonely egypt" because they will give you 100% back, in making it your personal holiday to remember.
I will be using them again soon !!

Our family of 4 adults enjoyed the trip of a lifetime to Cairo thanks to Amr and his wonderful staff at Lonely Egypt. I began my search for tour guides by contacting the Egyptian Tourism Ministry and submitting detailed information as to what I wanted to do and see while in Cairo. I received replies from over 30 tour companies but ONLY Lonely Egypt created a customized itinerary for my family to include absolutely everything we requested to see and other can't miss attractions. The price offered for our 4 day stay in Cairo was also the most competitive. Amr took the time to communicate with me for several weeks prior to our arrival to ensure the itinerary was perfect so that when we arrived all we had to do was enjoy our trip.

Upon arrival in Cairo, Amr met us in the airport terminal and assisted with customs and immigration. The process was smooth and we were able to quickly collect our luggage and make our way to our hotel. Amr arranged for a private van and driver for our exclusive use during our stay. The vehicle was spacious, modern and very clean.

During our 2 full days in Cairo we were met each morning at our hotel by Amr, our tour guide Mohammed, and our driver. Lunch was included and each day was planned to allow us to see the maximum number of sites without it being too overwhelming. One of the stops included a trip to Mohammed's neighborhood to enjoy a glass of cane juice and see how families in Cairo live, it was amazing.

Because of Lonely Egypt's expert staff and outstanding planning, once we arrived in Cairo we had absolutely nothing to worry about. All of our needs were taken care of and we felt extremely safe and secure, allowing us to experience an adventure of a lifetime that will never be forgotten.

If you want to visit Cairo and all it's treasures the best way is via Lonely Egypt. Amr and his team organised our whole day. From flying from Sharm El Sheik, being met at the airport with a air con people carrier, chauffer and tour guide. We were fast tracked through the Museum of Egyptology and our guide there was brilliant. The place is so big and you can get easily lost. She guided us to all the important exhibits and spoke in fluent English. The trip included The Pyramids at Geyser, Sphinx, a Papyrus work shop and a trip up the Nile at night on a Falucka were all highlights. Safely escorted back to the air port, we had a taxi waiting to take us to our hotel when we landed back in Sharm. It was a memorable day, organised efficiently and professionally all at a very reasonable price. Thanks to Amr and his team. Thoroughly recommended.
