My wife and I did the tour with them in Nov 12. The tour itinerary was tailored made for us all thanks to Sandy. I must again say thanks to Sandy as she was in contact with our tour guide from the start til the end of our tour to ensure everything was going according to our plans. When we landed, we were met with our airport representative who was holding our names as we got off the plane. He helped us through immigration and customs and handed us over to our guide Ameer who was waiting for us at the airport. I must say SelectEgypt already scored a point by being already there right off the plane.
Our tour was nothing but awesome. We did Cairo,White and Black desert, Luxor, Aswan, Alexandria. Visited all the famous pyramids, temples and rode various form of transportation (Camel,Horse Carriage,4wd in desert,hot air balloon in Luxor, Sleeper Train, Fellucca, Nile Cruise). Stayed at nice hotels and overnight in the desert..wow what an experience. We even got to visit the famous mummies of King Tut (Valley of the kings) and Ramses II (Egyptian museum).
Next special mention must go to our guide Ameer. Ameer was supposed to be our guide til Luxor, but he was so good, that we requested him to be our one and only guide in Egypt. He is a dedicated young,vibrant guide who is so interested in explaining each and every ancient history to us. He even gave us test on some Egyptian Gods which we remembered and made our tour more meaningful. He helped us alot while shopping in the bazaars. He was always communicating with Sandy on our progress. He explained to us about the ongoing conflict and always kept our safety in mind when we had to visit the Egyptian Museum which was located near Tahirir Square. We were really lucky to have him as our guide (Thanks Sandy)
Along the way we also had some good drivers. Waleed who drove us and cooked for us in the desert. Mohammed who drove us almost >500km safely with great and alert driving skills.
To sum it all off, our experience in Egypt was awesome thanks to Select Egypt...
