The trip.me way of travel
Maud and her company have done an excellent job of organizing our trip to Colombia. Everything has gone smoothly. All drivers and Guides show up on time (mostly earlier 5-10 minutes). Most of the guides are very knowledgeable and have done their job nicely. My favorite guide is with Sergio Usma in Salento region (Risaralda&Caldas coffee triangle region). Sergio is an excellent tour guide and he will you services from his heart. You won't' get bored when traveling with him.Read More Read More Less

Very knowledgeable tour guides of the temples and pharaohs of ancient Egypt.
We were nearly 100% satisfied with the trip. The guides were very knowledgeable, spoke good English and were punctual. Unfortunately, it started out bad as I could not find your representative as I was looking for someone with the Trip.me sign; he carried instead the local agency sign, without my name.
You could make a few improvements on the scheduling. First of all, I would suggest you include the carriage ride around the pyramids. We did it early in the morning and it was one of the best moments of the trip as there were very few people around. Secondly, I would suggest a later flight from Cairo to Luxor. We had a 6:30 am flight, arriving an hour later in Luxor and the first excursion of the day started at 3 pm. So, there was no reason that we had to get up so early. We booked the trip early enough so that a later flight would certainly have been available. On the way back from Aswan to Cairo, you had booked us in the Meridien Pyramids Resort, which is a long way from the airport. We asked to be rebooked in a hotel closer to the airport as the following day we would be leaving for Dubai, which your office did. However, the hotel you chose (I forgot the name) was not very good and I would not recommend you to use that hotel in the future. It may well have been that a good hotel was not available because of the last minute change.
We had the best experience booking our trip with Amira, she was always helpful.
