“My best friend and I have just returned from a trip to...”

Written on: 07/11/2010

My best friend and I have just returned from a trip to Egypt. We also received high-quality service from Your Egypt tours. We are women in our mid-30s and were at first a bit apprehensive about travelling alone to Egypt because of what we had read on the U.S. media about women being harassed by men. So we did a lot of research before deciding to embark on this journey. We decided on this tour company after reading several forum discussions regarding the company's great customer service posted on a website called Tour Egypt Message Center. We got in touch with Ahmed who helped us plan every single detail of our trip, from getting our airfare tickets to the actual activities we'd be doing. He also sent us a link to their blog. This was very helpful because we were reminded that we would be visiting a Muslim country and needed to be mindful of their dress code for women. This tip was very helpful! We felt safe and were not harassed or felt intimidated by men throughout our stay in Egypt. Ahmed also reassured us that we would be having "Adel as our guide who had lots of experience arranging women tours". Sue and I chose their "Luxor and Cairo must see ancient monuments", a 5day tour package which included transfers from and to the airport, accommodations in Cairo and Luxor, entrance fee to all tourist attractions as well as breakfast and most of the other meals. The only thing that was not included was our Cairo-Luxor roundtrip airfare ticket that cost us around $150 each. The tour was well-organized and well-run, although there were a couple of times when things ran on "Egyptian time" which means we were sometimes running a little behind schedule. We didn't mind it at all because we felt that this was part of getting a taste of Egyptian culture. Also, the way the tour was set up allowed enough time for us in each of the places we visited. Our accommodations in both Cairo and Luxor were perfect; the hotels were clean and well-located. The sightseeing outings were beautiful and covered many aspects of Egyptian ancient and modern culture. We toured the usual tourist sites in Cairo-pyramids, mosques, museum, and in Luxor-Valley of the Kings, and other spectacular temples. Egypt is a country full of history and fantastic places! We had such an incredible time with lots of adventures. Our guide Adel was outstanding! He truly went beyond explaining the basics. You can tell that this man really loves what he does for a living. He was very attentive and respectful, he behaved like a true gentleman with us. He is also a character! He's hilarious when he tells his jokes and always keeps it very professional. We highly recommend Your Egypt Tours and Adel as a guide! Nancy
