My wife and I just returned after a private tour of Egypt with EGT. We have been on many group tours but like to book private tours with local tour companies in countries where the prices are reasonable. Egypt is one of those countries. We could book a private tour with EGT at approximately the same per day cost as the group tour company we normally use but with a private tour you have so much more flexibility. The whole tour went like clockwork. All the guides and drivers were very good. They even had an agent that meets you at the airport and walks you through the visa and immigration process. We would also recommend including Hurghada on the Red Sea in your itinerary. EGT put us in a fabulous resort there. It was a good break between the historic sights of Cairo and Luxor. The Nile cruise boat they chose was also very nice. EGT is highly recommended by us.

I was badly surprised by our tour guide who demanded from us to pay in advance and in cash $15 dollars per person per day to "cover tips for all drivers, guides, waiters, etc". This has no sense but it seems to be a well stablished habit in that city. Also they take you in any tour to "visit" some local atraction, like the Papyrus place or Cotton stores where you are almost forced to buy. Prices are too high for what they sell. Request not be taken to any store. They will tell you thiese are cheaper. Not true.

Response from ahmedkB8815RI, Owner at Egypt Guided Tours
Responded 17 Dec 2019
Dear Chapsdeli I think you have had a bad experience in your trip but this was not with our company and i think this review is sent to the wrong location I am sure of the attitude of our staff especially the tour guides, they are all Egyptologists and this is not the way they deal with our guests Please if you read this response double check the company’s name that you travel with and correct this mistake It will be better if you mention the company’s name and the Guide’s name Thanks for your understanding

While researching what to do in Cairo we came across the company Egypt Guided Tours. We only had 2 days in Cairo so we really wanted to maximize our time and contacted them for advice. We got onto Ahmed who was really great. He gave us good advice and what to do to best maximize our time. So from the start, the service was great over email and WhatsApp. Therefore, we decided to book all our trip logistics through them. We booked with them for pick up at the airport, return and daily guided tours. So let me start by giving appreciation to Mr. Osama who is their representative that met us upon arrival. He met us inside the terminal (meaning, as you come off the plane and not after you collect luggage) and helped us get our tourist visa with ease. Being from a small island and a relatively unknown passport, Osama was able to answer any questions the immigration had and we were on our way. Then Ahmed gave us a very good English speaking tour guide Mr. Yasser who is actually certified in Egyptology. We had 2 days of great educational tours and we went to all the different markets, souks and places of history. Without a doubt we would recommend Egypt Guided Tours for all your trip logistics.

We didn’t want to join a large group tour of Egypt and were very fortunate to find Ahmed Khattab’s company Egypt Guided Tours on Tripadvisor. After reading the many positive reviews and doing a FaceTime with Ahmed I decided to go with his company. Ahmed did all the planning and communications was very easy using email. We signed up for the Egypt in Style escorted tour with some added visits as I describe below. Day 1: On arrival at Cairo airport we were met by Ahmed’s representative Osama before the customs area and he facilitated us through passport control and customs. After leaving the airport we met our driver also named Ahmed who drove us to the Le Meridien in Giza and checked us in. Right away we were blown away the views of pyramids from the hotel. Ahmed Khattab met us at the hotel and we went through what to expect while we were in Egypt. An excellent way to begin the visit was the Sound and Light show at the pyramids in the evening. Day 2: We met our Cairo tour guide Hesham Gabry and driver Ahmed after breakfast for a tour of the Giza Plateau and pyramids. After visiting Khufu’s pyramid we went for a camel ride by the panoramic point and then to the Solar Boat Museum and view of the Great Sphinx. We dropped by an interesting Papyrus shop were they demonstrated how the ancient Egyptians made papyrus scrolls and of course this was a shopping opportunity. Hesham gave us a choice of 3 lunch places and we opted for the local food and had delicious falafel and chicken shawarma. After lunch it was off to Saqqara to see the Stepped Pyramid and the Imhotep Museum. We finished the day with a Nile River Cruise and Dinner Show featuring belly dancing and a whirling Sufi dancer. Day 3: We met our guide Hesham and our new driver Sameer for a day tour of Alexandria visiting the catacombs at Kom al-Shoqafa, the amphitheater discovered by a donkey at Kom el-Dekka and Qaitbay Citadel with it’s view of the harbor. Lunch was at the Fish Market overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Hesham arranged a meal which included seafood soup, grilled fish, shrimp and calamari. Our final stop before returning to Cairo was the new library of Alexandria on the site of the original one. Day 4: Hesham and Sameer took us for a walking tour of Old Cairo first visiting the Coptic Hanging Church and then Ben Ezra Synagogue the oldest one in Egypt and finally to the Cavern Church where the Coptic Christians believe that Mary and Jesus stayed while fleeing King Herod. After walking through the Khan el-Khalili old market we stopped for coffee sitting across the famous al-Hussein Mosque. Day 4 was a shorter day because we needed to wake early the following day. Day 5: We were picked up by Ahmed for an early morning flight to Luxor. At Luxor airport we met our driver in Luxor also named Ahmed and our tour guide Mohammed. We arrived at Karnak Temple for an early morning tour. At 10am it was already hot and we decided to check in to our Nile cruise ship the MS Blue Shadow and postpone our visit to Luxor Temple for the evening. I highly recommend visiting Luxor in the evening when it is all lit up. Day 6: After visiting the east bank of Luxor the previous day Mohammed and Ahmed took us over to the west bank. First was a stop at the Colossi of Menon and then to the Valley of Kings where we entered 3 tombs. After a shopping visit at an Alabaster shop we headed for Al-Deir Al-Bahari or better known as Hatchepsut’s Temple. The cruise left Luxor after lunch as it headed up the Nile for Edfu. Day 7: Accompanied by Mohammed we took an early morning horse carriage ride to Edfu Temple. The cruise ship left for Kom Ombo Temple where we were able to walk to the temple and Crocodile Museum. Sailing to Aswan we went through the Esna Locks and then were greeted by the brightly lit Aswan Mosque. Day 8: It was an early morning start for our 3 hour drive to Abu Simbel. Accompanying our tour guide Mohammed was our new driver Hassan who did a wonderful job of getting through the various checkpoints ahead of everyone else. We visited the temples of Ramses II and his wife Nefetari which must be considered one of the highlights of trip. In evening we went to the Sound and Light show at the Philae Temple located on an island in the Nile. Day 9: We had a new driver Yousef on our final day in Aswan who picked us up with Mohammed to visit the Unfinished Obelisk and then to the Aswan High Dam built in the 1960’s with Russian assistance. We then took a motorboat to visit a Nubian Village located on an island in the Nile. Lunch was freshly caught Nile fish at a restaurant recommended by the motorboat captain. Hassan took us to the airport for our flight back to Cairo. At Cairo airport we were once again met by Osama who then passed us to our driver Ahmed. Day 10: Back in Cairo for our final day we were picked up by Hesham and Sameer for a tour of the Cairo Museum where we visited the Mummy Room and the King Tut treasures. Lunch was at Andrea’s which is famous for it’s Greek style roasted chicken. Our final visit in Egypt was to the Citadel and the Alabaster Mosque. Day 11: Ahmed picked us up for our airport transfer. Final Thoughts: I am so glad we went with Ahmed Khattab’s Egypt Guided Tours. We were taken care of from the moment we landed in Cairo to the moment we were dropped off at the airport. We were not only treated as valued customers but also as friends by our tour guides and drivers. Hesham in Cairo is a seasoned tour guide with wonderful stories. Our driver Ahmed in Cairo was very friendly and treated us like family. Sameer in Cairo was so courteous calling us king and queen. Mohammed our tour guide in Luxor is extremely knowledgeable and a former government Egyptologist. He was very flexible and accommodating of our needs. We had three wonderful drivers in upper Egypt: Ahmed in Luxor, Hassan in Aswan and finally Yousef.

We could not have had a more perfect trip than EGT provided for us. The drivers, the guides, the accommodations were great. Every detail was covered. My husband and I experienced everything we wanted to see and do without a single hitch. Ahmed personalized the trip for us and both Hemesh and Mahmoud went above and beyond to show us the history of their country- in very good English. The tombs and temples are incredible and our guides made sure we understood what we were seeing. We were treated with courtesy, respect, and as friends. We always felt safe and valued. We cannot recommend EGT highly enough. This is the only way to travel through Egypt.
