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.

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: 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'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."

Comment: We had a fabulous time. This tour company are a really great team. We were constantly met and looked after. I had my mother in law who is 79 years old with us and she also passed comment on the care given us by the team.

I would and have recommended them to others interested in travelling your region.

I can not thank Lamia and her people enough for the service and care given to us by her folks.

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: An enjoyable and memorable experience would be an understatement when describing our Unforgettable trip to Egypt.

The wonderful service and assistance we received from the tour operator was definitely one of the main reasons that our visit to Cairo and the Nile Cruise turned out to be one of the best travel experiences we've had. Whenever we had a query or a request, the reaction was overwelming.

We can heartily recommend this agency. Thank you once again for an excellent tour.

With best regards,

Comment: They provided my family with a truly VIP service from the minute we arrived at the airport until we were safely chaperoned to our departing flight.

The staff and guides were all knowledgeable, kind courteous and provided the highest standard of customer sevice. In all my travels throughout the world during the past 20 years, we have not had better service.

We had a fantastic holiday with a balance of busy and interesting visits of cultural and historical importance as well as time to relax on the 5 star cruise and we completed our holiday by chilling out in luxury at the superb Hyatt Regency hotel on the edge of the beautiful Red Sea.

This was a truly memorable holiday and we plan to come back to Egypt in the near future.

Comment: Myself and my partner had an amazing holiday in Egypt this summer and were extremely impressed with the whole experience. The quality of service we received throughout the tour was excellent and we were very pleased with the high standards of all accommodation and other facilities we were offered.

We were most impressed with the friendliness, accommodating nature and amazingly detailed level of knowledge we found with all of the guides we met on our tour.

This really helped to make our holiday an incredably enjoyable and memorable experience, and one which we have been happy to recommend to friends and family.

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...
