Rating: rating 4.5/5
Comment: I had an a very memorable and enjoyable tour of Egypt and the operator took care of all aspects of my trip very efficiently. All staff and guides were very friendly, knowledgeable and ensured my stay in Egypt was most rewarding.

The feedback for improvement that I have is that it would be helpful if other sightseeing options not included in the "standard" tour are mentioned (as possible additions to the tour) and costed to enable the traveller, if he/she chooses to see them, to budget for it.
For example there were many places of interest in and around Luxor not covered by the standard tour such as the Valley of the Queens, the temple complex of Medinat Habu etc that I visited at an extra cost that I was only made aware of then.
Trip Operators Response:

Thank you for your review. We will in future provide a list with regards to additional excursions.

Rating: rating 4.5/5
Comment: Every event for our tour package was very well organized and the tour guides and organizers was very professional and helpful.

Unlike some tours to other countries we have been to, the final cost of the tour was pretty close to our initial budget.

I would recommend this to any of my friends, and have already, and we also plan to visit again by the end of the year.

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: Thank you for giving me the opportunity to comment.

We had a superb holiday in Egypt made all the more interesting by the very knowledgable guides that were provided, particularly Rasha. The hotel in Cairo - "Zoser" was of a good standard and although marked as 5 star would in all honesty be regarded as a good 3+ by European standards.

The tour company provided air conditioned transport, were very flexible in meeting our needs as a group (12 in total) and came up with an interesting and varied mix of excursions, the tourist police and armed guard were reassuring in their presence whilst remaining unobtrusive.

The only down side was the Cairo city element which due to the huge numbers of residents & crowding into all areas and rubbish in the streets gave a very poor impression to tourists, although maybe we should have expected this more than we did. Trying to cross the road on foot was an experience and the general standard of driving displayed by most of the residents within the city was close to a white knuckle ride of a fun fair, throughout which our driver to his credit maintained a calm approach giving much needed ressurance to the group.

However it wasn't all bad, the Pyramids and Sphynx as you would expect still remain a highlight. Cairo museum whilst containing superb artifacts left us all a bit saddened by the conditions in which the exhibits were kept. Although this should change soon with the building of a new purpose built site. The mini cruise down the Nile was well worth it and everyone agreed that it would have been better to extend that part by two days and reduce the stay in Cairo. Luxor and Aswan provided a good contrast and allowed us to see the real Egypt that we had anticipated.

Comment: On behalf of our family, I would like to confirm that the operator made our Egypt holiday an
absolute pleasure!

We were given 5 star treatment by ALL of their employees & associates in person, the itinary was brilliant & on a number of occasions the staff went beyond our expectations, in terms of friendly & helpful customer service.

We thoroughly recommend this team to any potential tourists, who want to have a safe, secure, informative & fun tour of the great sites of Egypt.

Thanks to Lamia & her wonderfull team for a great holiday!!

Comment: Our entire experience with this operator was great, they allowed me to customize the sites we wanted to visit and also made additions on the fly at reasonable cost.

We were met at each venue from Cairo airport to Abu Simbel with a knowledgeable coordinator and guide. We were never left waiting.

I wish we had had more time in Egypt to visit more places,

Comment: Our trip to Egypt was awesome!

Even a week after being home, we can't stop talking about it. It's truly an amazing experience to visit the temples, to stand in front of pyramids that are almost 5,000 years old, to set foot inside the burial chambers of these pyramids, to cruise the spectacular Nile River, to swim in the Mediterranean Sea and to experience true Egyptian hospitality.

We had a terrific driver (Ayman) and a great tour guide (Rasha), who invited us to her house to enjoy an Egyptian meal with her family.

Words can't describe how remarkable our vacation to Egypt really was...
Client: Anthony J. Feret - from United States
Trip: Short visit to Egypt
Rating: rating 5/5
Comment: I just want to to send a message to make sure that I gave proper compliments to Resha and Ayman. My trip and time spent in Cairo was very enjoyable and I owe it all to their company, knowledge and friendship. They showed me things that I had only dreamed of seeing previously and took the time to introduce me to some local culture that went beyond the normal tourist items.

I will remember my trip and time with them forever and will certainly recommend the company (and their guidance) to anyone I know who is considering a trip to Egypt in the future.

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: We really enjoyed our holiday in Egypt, it had been a dream of my Mothers to go there from when I was a small child and it felt great to grant her this wish.

This operators was teriffic, and I will definately be in touch with them for my next trip.

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.

Comment: I am writing to let you know and to say Thank You for one of the best holidays of my life. Everything went as clock work and we all were extremely impressed and amazed, including my Son, who was the youngest of the group.

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.

Trip: Short Cairo Tour - Egypt: Special Offer
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.

Rating: rating 5/5
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.

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...
