This private tour was a really interesting and fact-filled experience. Our guide was great, though we went at the weekend and it was extremely busy, so if you take this tour, I would recommend you go during the week.

One of the most thrilling tours of a lifetime. We had a fantastic guide who explained the sites and brought the history to life from me. Having a personal guided tour is such a better experience than just taking pictures and I will highly recommend this tour to all my friends.

Fantastic holiday of Cairo and Alexandria with Egypt Tour Excursions Egypt Tour Excursions created a remarkable memorial experience for me; this was my first time going to Egypt. Thanks Egypt Tour Excursions for all your help in making my experience of Egypt fabulous.

It is the amount of time Egypt Tour Excursions spent with us and the personal touch given during this tour will never forgotten. Mr. Hamza made sure no details from our tour was missed. Every day was jam packed with daily activities.Eating khoshri was an experience really good food From the time we landed we were met at the airport by Egypt Tour Excursions and everything went smoothly. One of our suitcases was missing Mr. Hamza bend backwards to make sure we had the suitcase by the time we were ready to leave Egypt.

Our guide Fatima from Dida was well versed on Egyptology and did a marvelous job in helping us understand Egypt ancient history, art, archaeology, religion but most importantly explaining in such a way for us to understand easily Mr. Hamza tailored our interest to what we wanted to see in Egypt and I have been left with the impression that Egypt Tour Excursions knows what they are doing I would definitely use Egypt Tour Excursions again Mr. Hamza and Fatima from Dida thanks for making this a trip of a lifetime.

Seeing Cario on a cruise was fantastic. The food was delicious, and so was the service. I came across this tour by browsing online, and I will use the same company again. I can’t express enough how beautiful the views were of Cario and Giza, and I would like to thank you very much for enabling us to enjoy this magical experience.
