“Well worth the effort”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

Our journey to The Valley Of The Kings took over 3 hours along rough roads but the sights were well worth the effort. Seeing Tutankhamun's toms was magical.

“Wonderful country with excellent service from Royal Manta Travel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

To immediately fall in love with the country, you need to choose the right company that organizes your vacation. This is Royal Manta. I travel a lot and I can say with confidence - they are professionals. And they love their job. We have traveled a big company and did not sit in one place. Everything was organized perfectly! there is no doubt that the next holiday to Egypt will be only with Royal Manta Travel. I recommend!

“Egypt 2012”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

We just got back from out trip to Egypt. Our group consisted of 5 college friends catching up after a few years and we pretty much wanted the whole package of fun and the history behind Egypt. we had a tight schedule in which we had to cover as much of Egypt as possible. Any regular travel agent would give you a package and you had to change your schedule accordingly. In this case we booked our flight tickets first and then contacted Royal manta.

We do trips every year and mostly organize the whole thing ourselves using lonely planet and other internet blogs but with the political situation in Egypt we didnt want to risk it so we contacted Royal manta very apprehensively, but withing a few email exchanges it was clear we made the right choice

The executives at Royal manta were amazing and very prompt with their replies , our first point of contact was Mr. Ahmed who was available almost all through the day he patiently answered all our questions and they pretty much let us play around with the itenary and change it to our preferences while making some suggestions. when we asked about other clients that used their services he immediately put us onto a client who just got back from Egypt using their services. They clearly told us which part of the tour was additionally charged and which came as part of the package. They gave us a very clear timeline which was useful for us to plan our free time

The team at Royal manta made sure we were never alone, they were with us from the time we landed to the point before security check before departure. They were fluent with english

we had a few hours in luxor before we caught the train to cairo and even for those few hours royal Manta organised for someone to come and make sure we board our train at 10.30 PM.
Their executive George was with in contact with us all through the trip and him being a local helped us go to places which were not so touristy. He also helped us bargain and his english was very good which was comforting. There was a time when our train was late and we had to get on the cruise at Aswan and George made arrangements for food on the cruise to be delivered to our rooms and made sure we didnt miss our tour of aswan.

Make sure you ask for Saed as your guide for cairo as hes got a lot of information on the history and architecture.

make sure you carry lots of water and good walking shoes on this trip. Sunscreen is a must as the weather is cold but the sun is out

“Egypt Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

The Trip was absolutely amazing, Royal Manta our travel associates ensured that we covered all with minimum burn to the pocket. We were very pleased with the hospitality that we received and the tour guides provided had very good knowledge about the subject and were very fluent in English making communication very easy. All the promises made in terms of hotel stay & cruises, sightseeing with inclusions of tickets were all taken care off. We being a vegetarian family were promised that the same would be taken care of and it was indeed taken care off with us being served vegetarian food throughout with private guided tours and lunches and dinners.

All I can say is that it was an fabulous experience and we would surely want to go back and use the services of Royal Manta while we plan our trips aboard and have a presence of Royal Manta in that country.
