Had a completely private trip for 2 people, we were picked up at 5.30am and drove to Luxor where we met our tour guide MAHMOUD NOUR.
All I can say is wow! What an unforgettable day all the temples were simply incredible and his Knowledge was beyond belief, he explained so much before we entered each temple that when we looked around we had some understanding of the meanings of the images and that simply blew me away being able to read the walls and see the story they told and the meanings behind them. I will be returning as there is still much to see at the Valley of the kings it’s impossible to do it all in one day! I will be requesting Mahmoud to guide us again as he was so passionate about the history that it was infectious! Highly recommend this company but especially MAHMOUD NOUR what an amazing, pleasant and Funny man.

Our family of four took a 10 night 11 day tour of Egypt during the Christmas/New Years break that was organized by Egypt tours portal.

Short Summary: We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this tour operator to our friends!

Some more details:

First we spent a couple of nights in Cairo enjoying the great pyramids. We loved the sound and light show in the night and the camel ride during the day that offered incredible views of the pyramids. We also thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Sakkara and the step pyramids.
Our guide during this leg of the journey was Mahmoud who was enthusiastic, fluent in English and gave us the necessary information to better enjoy the sights. He also got us some of the best falafel sandwich that we have ever tasted in Sakkara!
The driver Bas was an absolute joy and taught us a few phrases of Arabic and the vehicle was large and comfortable van that easily accommodated 6 riders. The hotel we stayed in (Steigenberger Pyramids) had a fantastic view of Pyramids from our room and a super extensive breakfast buffet.

We then flew down to Luxor and after a tour of the incredible Karnak and Luxor temples went on 4 day NIle Cruise To Aswan, The ship we went on was a bit dated, but not uncomfortable. The oldness of the ship was more than made up for by the super friendly nature of the staff on the ship. For example, we were vegetarians and the staff made sure that every night we had a special vegetarian item cooked just for us (even though there were plenty of vegetarian options in the dinner buffet). The Nile is an amazing river and the cruise is super relaxing. We saw couple of other great temples on the way to Aswan. After reaching Aswan we toured the Valley of the Kings and then went to Abu Simbel on the last day (3-4 hours by van through the desert with an amazing view of the sunrise and some pretty cool desert mirages). The temple of Abu Simbel itself is astounding both in its location and construction.
Our guide for this leg of the trip was Mohamed who had studied Egyptology in college and had nearly 20 years of experience guiding tourists. This clearly showed and we learnt so much from him about ancient Egypt and each of the places we saw.
It is really hard for me to express in words how beautiful/incredible each and every temple/tomb we saw was, especially given how old (thousands of years) they were!
We also took a quick stop at the impressive Aswan Dam that serves such a critical function in modern Egypt.
Again, I would commend Egyptian tour portals for arranging very comfortable vans for our transport.

On our final leg we flew back to Cairo from Aswan and took a day trip to Alexandria and a day trip around Cairo including a trip to the Egyptian Museum and the famous Khan-e-Khalili bazaar. The Alexandria library was again breathtaking. Our guide for this leg of the tour was again Mahmoud and our driver again was Badr.. They helped us shop for some sweets in Alexandria (apparently it is the town famous for this) and we are still enjoying some of it at home!

We cannot thank Egypt Tours Portal for the absolutely great arrangements (hotels, airport pickup, meals, transport, guides) executed flawlessly. A couple of times when I had questions, they were easy to reach (via phone) and promptly got back. At no time did we feel unsafe and in fact felt very much at home!
I concur with the hundreds of other reviewers, that this is great organization with great people and wish them the very best!

Rahem was our tour guide in Cairo. She was so amazing and knowledgeable. I felt so safe with her, and she was very personable. I am a 25 year old female and went with a friend and we felt so safe and comfortable. I highly recommend, I will remember this trip forever.

My friend and I booked a trip to Egypt with Egypt tour portal and also had a Nile River Cruise.
During our Time in Cairo,Mohamed Elshemei was our guide... he let us take our time and gave us lots of information about the sites ...
During our Nile cruise ...Luxor Aswan Abu simbel and much more, our guide was Omar Haridi. Omar is filled with information like an encyclopedia ! You can tell he is very passionate about all the history and ancient sites we visited.... he taught us how to read Egyptian scripts, but watch out he will test you at the end ;) hahah! I really enjoyed our trip with Omar he was very funny and easy going as well. Thank you very much for everything ! I recommend 100%

I went on a day trip to Luxor from Hurghada with my husband, My daughter and her partner. Our tour guide was Omar and he was amazing. After a long journey to get to Luxor I was questioning how much I would enjoy the day. But Omar was so informative fun and very friendly and completely made the day totally tailored to our needs. Can't recommend him highly enough. He kept us thoroughly engaged throughout and I learnt so much.
Well done Omar!!
