Egypt Travel Gate
Dear Mr. Ahmed Ali,

Thank you very much for the good arrangement of the tours both "Day Excursion to Abu Simbel Temples" and "Half day to Luxor West Bank".
It was my wife's dream to visit Abu Simbel temples since it was completed 40years ago. We were fascinated by the big project and precious history of human kind. Thanks to our guide Mr. Abdel(Abd El Snosy) who was a polite and knowledgeable person, kept on giving us interesting information for our visit. Though it was a very long drive to Luxor-Aswan-AbuSimbel and the condition of the road wasn't always good, our driver was carefully selecting the comfortable area to drive, most of all, he is a safety driver.
Therefore, we did not have to worry much on the road safety this time.
The first class train is a good option to ride for retruning from Aswan to Luxor. Due to the long time we spent since early in the morning till evening, we were tired and asleep on board as we felt so comfortable. While we were asleep, our guide-Mr. Abdel told us that he remained awake in order not to go beyond Luxor.

We are very much pleased to see Mr. Abdel again on the following morning for "Half day tour to Luxor West bank". We enjoyed very much again to visit wonderful places that Luxor has so much to offer.

We are now reluxing and spending lazy afternoon at Hilton Luxor. Sorry to say goodby to Luxor tomorrow as we take a morning flight to Doha-Dobai.

Mr. Ahmed Ali, please accept our heartiest thanks to the trips we enjoyed and experienced a lot of things through the conversation with Mr. Abdel, and sincerely wish that we come again in the future.

Best regards

The trip was great due to amazing Petra but few things to improve:
1) Organization was a little bit crazy: I booked this tour online but my "internet" contact person changed our schedule several times because he thought I booked another trip.
2) Boat trip Taba - Aqaba is overpriced (USD 180 return ticket)
3) Guides in Jordan were not helpful when I wanted to contact our driver in Egypt, They even didn´t a correct telephone format of Egypt.
4) Our car driver in Egypt did not use heating as we wanted during our 6-hour trip Taba-Cairo. In other words, it was cold and the driver didn´t care much about it despite our many complaints.
5) The tour schedule said that horseriding fee was included in the tour´s price, what was not true and we had to pay for it :-/.

We set up our day trip to Cairo on line, about two months before we left on our cruise. Travel Gate made it easy and the cost for the services were very clear and competative. Our ship docked in Alexandria Egypt about an hour later than expected, but our driver and quide were right there to greet us as we stepped off the ship. Our guide for the day, Yaya, was delightful, entertaining and full of historical as well as informative information. He spoke very good English and made our foursome feel that we were in very good hands. This is a very professional group that knows how to take care of their guests!

We travelled for an overnight stay from Cairo to St Catherines in the Sinai to climb Mount Sinai and see St Catherines. I had been before 15 years previously but my partner had not been to Egypt before. Travel Gate and our driver and guide were great. It was a long way to go from Cairo and we were the only two on the trip and our guide made the time fly chatting to us about Egypt past and present and giving us loads of tips and advise on the rest of our travel plans. They could not have been more helpful and dealt with everything for us with nothing being too much trouble including before we booked and afterwards. Having now returned to London after 3 weeks in Egypt and having dealt with other tour companys and guides I can say that TravelGate and our guide were brilliant and I could not recommend the company more highly.

I would rate this travel company as very good. They were on time for each and every transer to and from four different airports in Egypt. This was absolutely imperative for me as I was traveling alone without a cell phone during a time of major demonstrations. The guides spoke English well and were quite knowledgable. The company reps were also quite friendly and very helpful.

My only major complaint would be the hotel used by the company in Cairo. The Grand Pyramids hotel wasn't clean, the hot water was erratic and my view was of a concrete wall.

In summation, I would recommend Egypt Travel Gate to anyone traveling alone or in small groups.
