Trip: A taste of Egypt, includes Cairo Nile Cruise Luxor
Rating: rating 5/5
Comment: My trip to Egypt was one of, if not the best, vacation I have taken. Right from the very beginning the staff were attentive, kind, and sensitive to the needs of the "weary traveler"

The guides were all very knowledgeable, and we truly enjoyed being with them even as they maintained their professional demeanor.

I will not hesitate to call on you for future vacations and have recommended your services to others.

Thank you again for all the help we received in making this a most memorable time.

Comment: Thanks for everything. We had a wonderful time in Egypt. Everything went smoothly from Airport pickup to departure, including tours and hotels and cruise. We were very satisfied.

We would like to thank especially Rasha, driver Ayman, And Mr. Foad for taking care of us in Cairo.

We will be very glad to recommend this operator to anyone of our acquiantance planning a tour of ancient Egypt.

Finally, I came back with a favourable impression of Egyptian Government for taking extra precaution and security to protect the foreign tourists from terrorists.

Comment: Our trip to Egypt was fantastic.

The tour put together exceeded our expectations. All of the identified items in the tour were provided as detailed, with no exceptions. The staff under the guidance of Lamia, is focused on service. We were always meet exactly as promised and the staff took care of everything as required.

Some of the surprises included having our tours in Cairo provided by a single minivan and dedicated guide for our small six person group. The personal attention was great and made the trip that much more special.

What most impressed me was their flexibility. They will build any tour to met your needs and budget. They even were very accommodating with a few changes we made for our last day.

Again, service was key. What is most surprising, is this is a very affordable company providing a product that is as good as companies charging twice as much. Thanks

Comment: I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Egypt. I went with three other people and the personalized treatment we received was wonderful. They created a tailor-made trip to suit our needs. We were in a van instead of a large bus load of people for most of our excursions in Cairo, Luxor, and the Red Sea.

Our tour guide, Rasha, and our driver, Iman, in Cairo were fantastic! Rasha was very knowledgeable and both were so friendly and helpful.

I would recommend traveling with this operator to my friends and will continue to use Africa Guide when I take my next trip, hopefully to Africa next December.

You truly have a beautiful country and beautiful, honest caring people.

I will definitely recommend your company to any family or friends travelling to Egypt.

Rating: rating 5/5
Comment: I contacted this operator and told them which hotel we wanted to stay in and which activities we were interested in.

We received their quote and because it was so reasonable, i was hesitant about confirming the reservation. Once we realised that they were IATA registered, we went ahead with the reservation. Ofcourse, we were still not sure what to expect.

We arrived in Egypt and were met at the airport and taken to our hotel by Mr Fuaad, who was friendly and helpful. The next morning we were met by the guide Rasha, and driver Iman, who took us sight-seeing. It was like spending a day visiting with friends, as were the next two days. Rasha and Iman were stunning with my two children, aged 6 and 4.

Our visit to Egypt was short but this operator contributed to filling those days with memories that will last a while yet. The staff are a special group, and I can wholeheartedly recommend them for any tour of Egypt.

Comment: We were not only satified, we got more than we expected and are truly happy customers.

From start to finish all the people working for this operator were knowledgeable, professional and very flexible. They helped us put together an itinerary for a private tour that was everything we hoped it would be.

Their guides were well versed in Egyptian history and were willing to accommodate all our needs. I would highly recommend using the and will use them again when I return.

Please let me know if you need anything else.

Rating: rating 5/5
Comment: The trip was excellent with great value for money.

The tour operator and guides were friendly and very professional and made sure all the
details were taken care of.

At every point of the trip from Cairo, to Luxor for Aswan we were met at the transit points and taken great care of. The highlight was the cruise down the Nile from Luxor to Aswan, its a must do trip with lots of food, fun and trips.

This operator comes highly recommended they get 10 out of 10 for personalized service and going the extra mile to make sure we had a good time.

Comment: We have recently returned from a tour of Egypt which we found though your website the Africa Guide and booked with the operator via the Internet.

The service provided by the company was excellent from start to finish and we were very impressed with the way everything was so well organised even down to the tour representative assisting us through customs on arrival and assistance at check in for our internal flights.

Pickup times for tours was always prompt and the services and information provided by the guides we had was excellent. Any nightime tours on offer were at an additional extra cost but well worth doing. The hotels chosen for us were very good and all provided good food and an excellent service and even the venues we were taken to for lunch during the tours were excellent.

We needed an extra days hotel stay for our return journey to the UK and the company arranged this for us as well along with transportation to the airport.

Overall we had a brilliant stay and would not hesitate in recommending this tour company to anyone who is thinking of holidaying in Egypt.

Comment: Almaz and I would like to thank you and everyone in your company for everything that everyone did for us to make our trip a totally awesome one!

From meeting us at the airport with a sign that had our name on it, getting us to our hotel, to expert driving skills in Egypt, great food, very friendly people everywhere we went, to the Nile River Dinner Cruise, it could not have been better.

Our tour guide, Rasha Fathy was the best! We had a great time traveling around with her and our driver Aymen.

Thank you all for showing us a great time in Egypt!!!

Comment: We very much enjoyed our trip to Egypt.

"We" are a family of 4 with the kids being 22 and 18 - We were met at the airport and ushered through and taken to our hotel where our itinary was confirmed and we were left to chill out.

The following morning we met our guide and was taken to Cairo Musuem, Pyramids and Sphinx, it was all fantastic and the guide great, this format followed through the rest of our trip, on our Nile Cruise, in Luxor and on the Red Sea. All the accommodation was superb. We did get the train from Cario to Aswan, which in hind sight, we could have done without but it was an experience!

Our one change would be to look into flights back to the UK from the Red Sea rather than go on the 6 1/2 hour coach journey, to Cairo, but we didn't so we got to see the entrance to the Suez instead.

We will recommend the tour we to any and everyone, all involved were the nicest, kindest and very helpful of people.

Rating: rating 5/5
Comment: We'd be happy to share some thoughts with you about our recent holiday in Egypt.

"Overall we had an absolutely marvelous time! The guides and drivers were great; especially Rasha and Aymen. They took very good care of us. Rasha was by far the best guide we had. And Aymen went out of his way to meet us at odd hours to see that we got where we needed safely and on time.

The Lake Nasser cruise on the Eugenie was great! For your future clients, it is truly worth the money. Great boat; great crew; great food. Overall, we had a fantastic time! The Egyptian people were fabulous – kind, helpful, and friendly.

Finally, Lamia in the office, was truly helpful and had infinite patience with all our questions and pre-trip enquiries. She really made a difference. We will certainly recommend your agency to friends interested in coming to Egypt. Thank you for helping make our Egypt experience a great one."

Trip: Egypt & Petra - Wonderful Sightseeing Tour
Rating: rating 5/5
Comment: Our trip to Egypt was truly amazing in every way. The guides we had in Cairo and everywhere else were amazingly knowledgeable. The drivers were very careful as well- given that I was trying to do this trip with a broken foot.

The place was so beautiful, and filled with the monuments we have been reading about and seeing pictures of for so long, we were very impressed.Particularly, when we saw the pyramids in giza or the temple at Karnak in the day, and went to see the sound and light show in the evening- it was like a beautiful review- I would recommend both shows too- they are very different but awesome.

The days were planned together so we could vary the routine and go see places we were keen to see and spend more time there if we wanted to. I think, we were clear in what we wanted to do, so it was easy, but even then, we got valuable suggestions on additional sights that could be easily combined.

They took us shopping as well, to many places for papyrus, perfumes, carpets, alabaster/ marble stuff and other things. At none of the places were we compelled to look around or buy things. We got help with bargaining if we needed it- being the people we are, we did not much help there...

If people are not keen to shop they can say so, and the guide will take care not to do any more shops- my husband did, on occasion and we did not have to visit the shops.
What I would really like to recommend was the way that the guide and the tour manager were able to suggest extra trips around our schedule, like going to a sound and light show or a evening boat cruise in Cairo, or even an extra day trip to Alexandria.

What was also very very sweet of them was to take care of my meal preference always- I had to only say it once to the manager when I arranged the trip and, throughout the trip, whether we were in cairo, on the nile cruise, the desert safari or in any hotel, I never had to repeat my instruction again. That felt like they were taking the trouble to take care for me.
Then there was also the way they would take feedback after every day or every outing- and really work on changing something we were not comfortable with.

I am sure we would go back to re-enjoy the wonders of egypt, on the traditional route, and also try to see the rest, like the western desert and so on.

Trip: Egypt - Cairo tour and Sharm El Sheikh
Rating: rating 5/5
Comment: We had a wonderful time in Egypt. It had a kind of rough start with the tourist visas and payment, but once we got that all straightened out we had a blast.

We where skeptical about visiting a middle eastern country but were pleasantly surprised that the people accepted us and welcomed us. Our tour guides made it even better by explaining things along the way. We especially enjoyed Sharm el Sheikh.

Thank you for a wonderful trip.

Comment: Thank you so much for the most amazing vacation ever!!! This company have some very wonderful people working for them. We spent most of the time of touring with Rasha and Iman. Rasha is wonderful. She is so knowlegable and makes you laugh and just doesn't ask if we have questions,, but asks you questions. She is the perfect tour guide and I hope you never lose her. Iman was such a wonderful help, I felt so badly about Mr. Hassan and hope he is doing better. But Iman is the BEST driver in the world. My husband and I thought driving in Athens was bad, but I don't think either one of us would dare drive in Cairo/Giza.

All of the guides were great, and we had a wonderful time and still can't get over all of the wonders of the world we saw. They are much more than the Pyramids. We went on a great tour in Luxor, and Eltabib that arranged, and Dalia the guide were also wonderful.

I will always truly be grateful we had this chance to see this amazing country and I will recommend them as the BEST to book any tour of Egypt.

Thanks again to all of the guides and drivers, and Lamia.

Comment: I have got good email responses from the tour operator. They were very help to tailor additional itenerary for the addtional days.

We ended up very satisfied with their tour guides Ms. Rasha Fathy & Mr. Ainan who shown us the various attractions. They arrived timely and used good comfortable vehicle to carry us, and most important of all is their friendliness & courtesy.

About our trip providers and reviews

Our Trip Providers

We carry out extensive company checks on all our providers, over 20 years we have built strong personal relationships with each of them, which assures you of an unparalleled service, great value and the trip of a lifetime.
We have participated in many of the trips found here (we have a nice job) and make our own independent assessments of the services provided, ensuring they meet with our own high standards.

All the trips are supplied by the end provider of that trip.
You may find the same or similar trips elsewhere, usually these are offered by an agent.
We prefer to give you direct access to the trip provider for reasons outlined below:

  1. Best price.
    The price you see here is the direct trip price set by the provider, the same price as purchasing directly with them (which is how it works), there are no added commissions.
    This means you are not paying an agents commission and the provider is receiving their fully budgeted trip cost.
    (agents can demand discounts from providers as well as adding commissions to the providers trip price)
  2. Easy customisation.
    By booking directly with the end provider, making changes is quick and easy.
  3. Fast problem solving.
    On the rare occasion that an issue may arise before or during your trip, by dealing directly with the end provider, problem solving is quick and efficient.
  4. Helping Africa help itself.
    The most straightforward way to assist the economic opportunities and conditions for local people across Africa, is by direct financial interaction with people in Africa. In a nutshell "Tourism".
    This kind of direct tourism gives opportunity to local people.

We limit the number of providers we work with in order to strike a balance between a good choice of trips and to be sure we can honestly recommend the service and validity of each provider.
Because the majority of trips can be customised by the providers, the choice of trip configurations is in the tens of thousands.

Our Reviews

We have 3,000+ reviews for our trips and providers.
All our reviews are fully qualified, we do not take unqualified reviews.
We show all reviews, the good and the critical (very few). Our providers have the ability to respond to reviews and those responses are shown alongside the review.
Acquiring genuine reviews is actually very hard, for our genuine travellers we make this an easy process but many people although satisfied with the service they received do not leave a review.

Many reviews on the internet can be left by an open process with little or no checks.
At best unqualified reviews are worthless, at worst they are misleading. We never take unqualified reviews.

We hope you find a trip to your liking and we are here to assist.

Wishing you happy travels...
