    Nile Cruise Luxor/Aswan
    This trip was everything I had hoped for and more. Starting in Cairo, and ending in Aswan, so many memories were made along the way. Rennassance Tours does an outstanding job. They saved the best for last with our tour guide, Sayed Taie. He was attentive to our every need, that included helping me up and down many steps. His recommendations were spot on and he did our bargaining for us because that is something we don’t enjoy. We got many, maybe too many, good deals! If you are lucky enough to get Sayed for your tour guide, you are blessed! I’m Not sure it is possible, but if you can, request him as your guide!

    Nile cruise from Luxor to Aswan
    My husband and I had a wonderful trip down the Nile river from Luxor to Aswan. We had a wonderful guide Sayed Taie. He bought the history of Egypt alive for us and we honestly are leaving Egypt with a deep respect for their people, history, customs and culture. The trip was well organised by the company Reflection and we did not have to worry about anything. We were met by helpful people during the entire trip and the experiences for each day tour was well managed. We always felt safe and well cared for The transport, food and accommodation was excellent. I would recommend this trip to anyone interested in travelling to Egypt

    Private touring with Roshdy
    Roshdy is the consummate private tour guide. He is kind, knowledgeable and attentive. He is well organized and very skilled at navigating through crowds and line-ups. There was always time for as many pictures as we wanted to take whenever and wherever we were. Our comfort and happiness are always his main concerns which we greatly appreciate. We have travelled a lot and Roshdy is one of the best tour guides we have ever had.

    Tour with Roshdy
    Roshdy is a great tour guide. He was our private guide from Luxor to Aswan on the Nile River cruise. He truly cares about his tourists. He goes out if his way to help. He went over and beyond what he needed to do. He took me to the pharmacy, and bought us things that we needed. He is a very good person and a very caring guide. I am keeping in touch with him so that I can use him as our guide again. I will also recommend him to my friends! I’m very satisfied.

    great experience
    Our family had a great time with tour guide Mohammed and driver Ahmed, who i think is one of the coolest driver in all of Egypt. I mean what can I say, seeing the sphinx, pyramids, king tut's mask. Your seeing everything in front of you that you've only read in books. We did the optional camel ride with the pyramids in the background to brag to our friends. It was a leisurely ride so the kids felt safe. I think he camel ride was the highlight of the tour and well worth it. The market was very lively and interesting atmosphere. Everyone was super nice and friendly. Overall our family had an excellent experience.

    Day trip Cairo to Alexandria
    Our day started out with the tour guide Mohammed arriving 15 minutes early. We had a 7:30 pick up time, it was great having someone on time/early. We picked up another couple. My family was my mom, dad, myself, and my 11 and 11 year old children. And we were off to Alexandria. We stopped for a restroom break about an hour into the 2 hr drive (best rest room we have seen in Egypt). We went to the Catacombs first, they were pretty cool. A smaller place but you go down and see some old catacombs. My kids liked how dark and cool they were. We went to Pompeiis Pillar next. This was pretty to see but there is not a lot to see. It was really hot in August. There is the pillar, and an underground area that used to be a library, and another underground area that was a temple. We went to the Alexandria Library 3rd. And took a toor of the library. We thought we would see old scrolls and books, but it was just a tour of a beautiful new library. Interesting, but we were hoping to see the old stuff. Last but not least, we stopped atthe Citadel. It was a gorgeous orangy tan colored old fort. You get to walk in and all the way to the top. You can see all of Alexandria and the Mediterranean Sea. This was beautiful. Following the 4 sites, we went to a sea food lunch, which was worth the whole price of the trip. We had shrimp and fish and rice and veggies and pita bread. It aas the most amazing seafood meal i have ever had. After lunch we were on our way back to Cairo. We had a restroom break about an hour into the 2 hr drive, and this had a super clean restroom also. It was a roadside pizza type restaurant. Very clean and very nice. The driver and tour guide were both talkative and answered all questions that we asked. It was informative, fun and a great experience outside of Cairo. My family had a great time.
