I would definately recommend Ahmed Maamoun with BESE, (also part of Golden Egypt) to arrange your vacation in Cairo or Alexandria. We arrived via cruise ship and stayed overnight in Cairo. Our guide and driver were there waiting for us upon arriving in port. We felt very safe in Cairo and Alexandria. When we left the US we were alittle concerned, but as usual we found the media seems to only report on the negative things which only represent a small portion the the Egyptian news and it's people. Most Egyptians embrace the tourists that come to see their country; especially those from the US. We customized our tour with Ahmed and our guide delivered on everything we wanted to see. We did everything at our own pace. Highly recommend the Oberli Mena house Hotel. It was a nice hotel and we could see the pyramids from our balcony. On our trip we went to several countries and Egypt was by far our favorite. Also highly recommend going into the large pyramid if you are not afraid of small spaces. You do have to walk bending forward and it does get hot, but the experience is one I will never forget. Almost didn't do it....I really am glad I did. The sound and Light show was alittle Hokey...but the way I saw it, it was an evening of entertainment...too bad they haven't had someone from Disney come and put it together..it could be fantastic. The tomb in Alexandria, Kom El-Shuqafa, was something we added to our trip and was well worth the stop. Our tour included all the usual stops like the Museum, Sakkara, Memphis, Khan bazaar, evening Felucca ride on the Nile, camel ride. We went to Alexandria our second day and did not go to the Mosques as we have seen many of these. We did go to the Khan bazaar at night and saw the mosques all lit up which were very pretty. I did alot of research before choosing BESE, they delivered a great price and quality tour.

Just got home from our wonderful trip to eygpt,we were on a thomson cruise and instead of using ship excursions we went with Best Eygpt Shore Excursions. first trip was to cairo museum and pyramids our driver and guide were excellant friendly and informative and out of the 800 people that travelled from the cruise ship we were the only 2 that got to the cairo museum unforgettable. Using BESE gave us more freedom and we felt a very personal touch with our own guide who was only too happy too answer all our questions and queries. Never too be forgotten the 2 days we travelled with BESE both to cairo and luxor i highly recommend BESE for that personal touch you wont forget we never will.

Alexandria to Cairo is a 12 hour tour that extended itself to 15 hours because of traffic similar to Los Angeles at rush hour. The transportation and the effort of the tour guide and driver was first class. Unfortunately the tour guide tried too hard to impress us with her knowledge of Egyptian history.and would do well to limit herself to the highlights and move on. While I would like to award this company with five stars, my aching back from all the standing around at the museum says otherwise. I was really happy to see our ship again.

I highly recommend Best Egypt Shore Excursions.

If you're cruising to the Holy Land and your ship is stopping overnight in Alexandria, then you should take it to the next level and travel with locals! Forget riding a huge, cruise-sponsored bus filled with 50 people. Our group of 8 (all ages) travelled with these local people who bent over backwards to make sure we had a great time, safely.

From the pre-departure communication with Ahmed, to meeting the guide (Goda - ASK FOR HIM BY NAME = say: I want GOUDA (like the cheese)), to the wild ride to (& from) Cairo (new 12 seat van), to the Egyptian Museum, to the local meals, to the Hotel (Mena House = very nice hotel with view of pyramids), to the pyramids, the Mohammed Ally Mosque (very cool), etc...

The price was fair, we saw amazing stuff, and we climbed the pyramids of Giza.
