We, my family went for vacations in Egypt during 4th to 13th May 2017. We spent 4 days in Cairo, 3 days on Nile Cruise, and 2 days in Hurghada. During the Nile Cruise, we visited places like Aswan, Kom Ombo, Edfu, and Luxor. We had an excellent experience and a very memorable vacations. My kids loved it all very much. We had tour guides, Egyptologist accompained all the time during the visits to various temples and pyramids. We were like immersed in the "before christ" era all through the tour and the experience can't be explained unless someone goes to Egypt. The entire tour, right from the pick-up at Ciaro International Airport till the see-off at the same was managed very well. All thnks to Amira, Tarek and his team, Md. Juma and Osama. Amira has been very helpful during the planning phase of the tour and has managed to make some vary last minute changes as well.
Some of the facts as per our experiences -
1. Egypt is safe and ample protections for tourists and tourist places.
2. Unlike the reviews I read prior to going there, clothing is not any concern. One can wear what she is used to wear in her own country.
3. While shopping, make sure you bargain. Things can be one-third the price of what is asked.
4. USD is accepted at most of the places without any issues.
It was a very great vacation everything was well arranged. Thanks for all Amira team
Simply exceptional. The entire trip was same as was advertised. Rather I would say it exceed my expectations. I would strongly recommend everyone to try trip.me. No complaints at all.
Amira did a fantastic job planning a 23 day tour or Egypt for myself and my husband in the spring of 2017. Trip Me led us to Amira and Memphis Tours and from them on everything went as smoothly as possible.
I had wanted to find a tour company based in Egypt to plan the trip - something I've found works well and gets us better prices than simply using a US based company. And our main goal was to avoid a big bus tour. Which we did. We gave Amira a time frame and a list of things we were sure we wanted to see, and she did the rest filling in the gaps and making all the arrangements. From the moment we arrived in Cairo we were very well cared for. We were met at the airport by a tour manager (Eslam) and driver (Faisel) with a nice, clean van. And every day following my husband and I were picked up at our hotel by a driver, egyptologist guide (every one of them was awesome) in a clean van (with WIFI!) and taken to see all the sites.
Amira did a wonderful job of filling out our trip with sites we would otherwise have missed, adding in attractions, sites, meals and taking care of our flights. Working with Memphis Tours was a pleasure.
