Comment: My mother and I did a 14 day tour and we had a great time!

We were met on time at each location and watched over very well througout our stay. As two women traveling alone it was important to feel safe and that we did at all times!

The generousity and welcoming nature of the tour managers and guides exceeded our expectations and all accomodations were up to standard with the resort in Hurghada being the highlight.

I would definately recommend this to my friends for a wonderful Egyptian experience!

Comment: Having a tour guide to glide us through so many destinations certainly made the traveling experience a lot easier. We witnessed one tour guide on many an occasion trying to talk with a large group. Our experience was very different. One tour guide for two people, this meant we got the full benefit of all our tours.

A bit more information from tour guide on local customs, especially tipping would have been helpful, especially expected amount, and who. We ran into difficulties when leaving our cruise boat. We had left a tip in the restaurant, bar, deck and room. As we did not leave any thing at resection, this seemed to cause some bad feeling. No one told us not to tip the different areas – that we should just tip reception.

Hope this is useful.
 
Trip Operators Response:

Thank you for your review. We will in future provide a brief with regards to tipping etiquette.

Comment: They were wonderful right from the first enquiry to the very last day of our trip. Lamia who was my main contact was just wonderful, she worked hard in arranging our customised itinerary, even two weeks before we were due to arrive we changed our itinerary and she was able to manage the changes within our time scale.

As for their service it was just wonderful, from the time we landed to our departure. We were met by Fouat at the airport who dealt with everything from visa, immigration clearance,etc. In Cairo he made sure our hotel rooms were to our satisfaction and exactly what we had request.

The trip just got better as we travelled to Aswan, Abu Simble, Nile Cruise, Luxor and Hurghada. I would not hesitate to recommend them especially to those with a family, we had two young children and so it was important that we were picked up on time, hotels were of our expected standard.

At each destination the representative were fantastic. Thorougly enjoyable trip and will go back to Egypt with this operator except next time we will take our extended family and friends.

Thank you for making sure our trip was enjoyable!!!"

Comment: Myself & 2 female friends bookedfor a 2 week trip to Egypt, we flew into Cario, was there for one day then got an overnite train to Aswan, did a 3 day cruise to Luxor, stayed in Luxor for 2 nights then with to Hugrada for 4 nights then it was back to Cairo for 2 more nights.

Overall the holiday was excellent, I would highly recommend using this operator to my family & friends. We found all our tour guides excellent and very knowledgeable in the area that they were in, they were also so helpful to us with small things. All hotels we stayed in were very comfortable & nice, the only thing was with 3 in a room some rooms were a bit small.

I would have no hesitation recommending Egypt or the operator to anyone.

Comment: I am delighted to give feedback as we had a wonderful time in Egypt which was definitely due to the outstanding care shown to us by the staff . As we had booked this trip privately through the internet we were taken to the many venues of the tour in private vehicles with our own guide and driver and the details and organisation was taken care of by representatives of the operator in all the places that we stayed.

We were very impressed by the historical and cultural knowledge and English skills of everyone involved and delighted by their friendly and caring attitude. We couldn't have had a better experience and would like to thank everyone involved.

Egypt is an amazing place to visit for its wealth of history and modern, chaotic, lifestyle. To be able to visit ancient pyramids one day and snorkel in the red sea the next is an experience not to be missed. We were so glad to have booked with this operator as the whole experience was so personal but not intrusive. The hotels were all excellent, particularly the winter palace in Luxor, and the price was amazingly reasonable.

Thank you so much to Lamia and her staff. We will gladly recommend them to our family and friends.

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.

Comment: My journey to Egypt was excellently organised by Mrs. Lamia. It was an unforgettable holiday and there is absolutely nothing to complain about any part of the journey.

I am considering to take my family on a Nile cruise at the end of the year and I shall definately book with Mrs. Lamia and her tour company again.

Comment: They provided us with the most wonderful holiday.

From the time we arrived at Cairo airport we were expertly looked after by the tour managers, guides and drivers. Our itinerary was fantastic and even though we travelled over 1,300 kilometres and stayed at six different locations during our 14 day stay, we were met at exactly the prescribed time, always in first class vehicles with friendly couriers and drivers.

Our hotels were also first class and the tour manager at each stage of our trip always checked us in and secured the very best accommodation.

We have recommended this trip to all our friends and associates.

Comment: We have completed this trip and this was the second time to Africa and again Africa has been very good to us.

This company in Egypt has been a super excellent company to work with. they were so friendly, courteous, kind, and on time and they made our trip perfect. I can not say enough good about them. If I go to Egypt again they will be our tour company.

We enjoyed the smiling faces and friendly encounters and the social meetings of the people of Egypt. They are so enjoyable. I wish all American's would travel to Egypt to experience the history the culture and meet new friends.

I want to thank you for your web site. If I had not found it I do not know how good a trip I would have had. I meet other people from Africa and will return another time to visit their country. Once again this was a great trip and enjoyed it very very much.

Comment: The whole expereience was, indeed, magical. Everything - the quality of the hotels, guides, transport arrangements and the itinerary itself were of the highest possible standard. From being welcomed on our arrival at Cairo airport to our departure two weeks later we were treated like Pharaohs.

From our point of view the best thing about the superb organisation was that we had all the benefits of individual travel (and service!) whilst knowing that the tour companies local support was on hand if required. This allowed us to make many Egyptian friends (we were invited to a wedding on our second night in Giza).
.. this was the best holiday ever.

Rating: rating 5/5
Comment: Wayne and I would like to thank the tour operator,for all their help in making this happen.

Our driver Ayman, and the tour guides Yasser and Tayeb were very kind, helpful and knowledgeable.

We always felt perfectly safe everywhere in Egypt.

The Egyptian people were so friendly and welcoming.

We are telling everyone in Canada to go and see Egypt, and are giving your contact information to anyone who shows an interest.

Thank you again for an unforgettable journey

Rating: rating 5/5
Comment: The people I interacted with (guides, drivers, tour manager) all did a very good job of showing us the sights, teaching us about their country, and its history. Our accommodations were first rate.

They really took care of us and had a good sense of what we needed as first time visitors to Egypt. You should feel confidant with them as one of your referral companies.

Trip: Short Cairo Tour - Egypt: Special Offer
Rating: rating 5/5
Comment: Upon arrival I was greeted by Fooad, the manager, at the airport. I was driven to my hotel (The Zoser. I thought it was a very nice hotel, maybe a 3 star by European standards. It was clean, comfortable, and had a nice buffet that was available all day/ While Fooad explained about Egypt and it's culture. The first day at the hotel I just fell asleep, since I had been traveling extensively.

Day 2 I was met in the lobby by the driver I had yesterday from the airport. He took me to the Cairo museum where I met my guide, Maha. She is the best guide I had on my trip! (I had been traveling for 3 months). She was very nice, spoke perfect English, and would answer any questions that I had. Next time I go to Egypt (because I will be using this company again, I was very pleased) I will be contacting Maha and hopefully she can be my guide again.

After the Cairo museum we went to a few shops in the city (like a papyrus museum (they have BEAUTIFUL work there), a perfume store and an Egyptian Cotton museum). My favorite store was probably the Topaz Bazzar, lots of really neat things there :) And you're not hassled on the street to buy souvenirs. We of course made the stop at the Pyramids and the Sphinx. Maha took some awesome pictures of me there, I can't thank her enough!

Day three I was again met by my driver and we picked up Fooad on the way to the airport. As a single female traveler I felt very safe, even though Cairo was pretty much empty of tourists after the Revolution. I was never left alone except at the hotel. I highly recommend visiting Egypt, no lines lol!

Everyone is really friendly and they just want people to come back to visit their beautiful country. I really had no problems there, and this company will make sure that you have the time of your life there.

Trip: A taste of Egypt, includes Cairo Nile Cruise Luxor
Rating: rating 4.5/5
Comment: We used this operator for Amman, Petra, Cairo, and Luxor. Overall we were pleased with the service,and the flexibility.

The driver in Jordan was excellent, and answered all our questions.He took us to a nice restaurant in Petra. The Grand View hotel had a grand view but with no hot water and no bar open, it was not our favourite hotel after walking all day around Petra.

On arrival in Cairo, our pickup man suggested we needed to pay more to fill in the day in Cairo. We feel this would have been better to bring up before we left home. Even after paying more to include the citadel in the tour, we still had a few hours to kill after the pyramids before we took the sleeper train. Our guide located a nice café which was appreciated.

The guide in Luxor was excellent although we had difficulty getting into our room at the Iberotel at 2pm. Doing the Valley of the Kings and Karnak and Luxor temples after the train ride was too much in the heat for one day.

The balloon ride on the second day was a highlight. We had prepaid for lunch and decided to relax in the excellent hotel grounds. The food was good but the service very slow. In the evening we did the Karnak sound and light.

Considering we did a lot in 4 days, we believe Ms Lamia did a fine job in coordinating everything.

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...
