Hello, my name is Mohamed
Destination Expert for Egypt, Jordan
Born and raised in Cairo, I grew up with a great love for history and adventure. After graduation in 2012, I have worked as a tour guide for one of the biggest travel agencies here in Egypt. Being a tour guide gives me the opportunity to spend my time to show to tourists the true beauty and history of my wonderful country, while meeting people from all over the world. That makes me understand more about the different cultures and habits from different countries, and client interaction and travel consulting has become a treasure of my life. I like to think of myself more as a trusted Travel Advisor that will help countless travelers to have a unique and unforgettable experience here in Egypt. This is my passion not my work, so I am ready to help you with all your queries when planning your trip with me.

Guides need to verify they have established a phone link before leaving guest at the hotel over night. We could not contact anyone after going to the hotels and had a problem with transportation from the hotel to the cruse boat. A guide from another company finally got in touch with someone that talked to us and everything was promptly fixed. Great tour, Great rooms, Fantastic service.
Exceeded expectations. Mohamed was extremely helpful in planing our trip. He had arranged our trips before and we look forward to having him doing it again in the near future. We are fortunate to have him as our Egyptian representative. Each time we visit Egypt, Mohamed makes sure that we see different sites that are of interest to us, and he makes sure to pick the proper guides that match our interest and personality. We can’t say enough how we enjoy the culture, history and incredible archaeological sites of Egypt. We also want to commend two of our guides... Sultan and Hend. They fit perfectly with us and we appreciate their knowledge and professionalism. Thank you, for once again, a wonderful trip, organized by Mohamed.
The tour was well organised and there is never a time when tour guide is late or did not complete their service satisfactorily. All the guides assigned are knowledgeable and a joy to be with. I have nothing but good thing to say about the tour guides assigned. My only comment is that Mohamed is pretty responsive when we were negotiating the tour but suddenly was not as responsive after I made the payment. He would typically respond to my questions after 2 emails, at one point I actually have to ask a tour leader to remind him to respond to me.
My trip was amazing, Mohamed made it easy and was there to answer all my questions, not only before the trip but also while in Egypt. He served as a link between my tour guides and I. I really recommend using the local agencyfor traveling to Egypt.
Compliments: - When planning the trip, Mohammed was quick to reply to questions and answered them thoroughly. Having said that, once we paid our deposit, replies took, on average, a week, versus one day in the beginning. - The local agencies team on the ground in Egypt were on time for most pickups and the tour guides were well educated, so they were able to present the materials/artifacts on the tour and effectively answer questions. - Egypt was our first private tour holiday and it allowed us to make good use of our time, seeing a lot of temples/tombs/museums in a short period of time, without having to worry about transportation. Areas for improvement: - We spend a considerable amount of time planning the itinerary with our trip.me travel agent, including carefully selecting the hotels. Our dates were flexible. We were told to go ahead and book our international flights and then the local bookings would be made. We selected the Old Cataract Hotel (a Sofitel property) in Aswan because we had just finished watching a Netflicks series called “The Secret of the Nile” (known in Egypt as “The Grand Hotel”) which was filmed at this property, so we were REALLY looking forward to staying there. It turns out that the hotel was fully booked by a local billionaire for his daughter's wedding. So, we never had the chance to stay at this hotel. Had the travel agent looked into availability prior to telling us to book our flights, we could have arranged to come a few days earlier or later in order to stay at this hotel. Very disappointing! Several other hotels in the area were also booked so we ended up staying in a horrible hotel. As for the other hotels, we booked 5-star luxury accommodations, yet upon arrival at the hotel, we were informed that the booking was made for a standard, not a deluxe room. This, too, was disappointing as most of the rooms were older and in need of upgrade. In Alexandria, we paid an upgrade fee to stay at the luxurious Four Seasons Hotel. Upon arriving in our room, it overlooked a roof and gravel lot. The travel agent had booked a City View room, not a Sea View room. When we asked to be changed, we were told no Sea View rooms were available, they were all booked. I would suggest that trip.me travel agents ask their clients for their hotel preferences. For example, smoking or non-smoking, what size bed, near the elevator or away, high floor or low floor, city or sea view. This way the traveller receives the style of room they are expecting. We had asked, on numerous occasions, for a detailed itinerary which would include what time will we be picked up, what is the approximate time the tour would finish for the day, the distance to travel to the various sites (in some cases it was 3-4 hours each way) and to the hotels (Giza hotel was 2 hours from the Cairo airport in traffic). We were told it would be managed on the ground in Egypt. We were sent a message via the ‘WhatsApp’ app the night before telling us the pick up time, which sometimes was as early as 6 am! At this point, we had no options. A couple of times we asked, can the pick up time be 30 minutes later, as we would like to sleep in and we were told ‘no’. The exception was ‘Sam’, our tour guide in Cairo/Giza/Alexandria. He was excellent and allowed us to vary the schedule and itinerary. He asked on the first day, what type of experience would you like to have tourist or local Egyptian. Perhaps, Trip.me/Amira should ask this question during the planning process to ensure the details of the tour meet expectations and then pass this information along to the tour guides. One thing we were not told and it was not on the ‘what’s not included’ section of the contract, was drinks. Soft drinks or any beverage were not included when the meal was included in the tour package. Certainly alcoholic beverages would not be expected to be included, but after finishing our meals which were included in the tour package we were asked to pay for our drinks and pay the tip for the entire meal. This should be clearly outlined by the tour company in the contract, as it added to our overall cost for the trip. Finally, we were supposed to receive a local phone for our stay in Egypt with a local SIM card and 5 minutes of international calling. We never received the phone and when I inquired, Ahmed, our tour leader said ‘I forgot to give it to you’. This was halfway through our holiday and he never arranged for one to be delivered to us.
We were extremely pleased w/the care & details that were arranged for us every step of our journey there & back home. The peace of mind was priceless!!!

Mohamed's knowledge of our destination and his expert recommendations was the foundation of a trip that EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS!!!!! I do not use these words often or without careful consideration, but really and truly from the moment we landed in Cairo until our return flight everything we were promised happened and more! I would have been very happy if what we were promised was delivered, but trip.me and Mohammed went above and beyond.
The service of Mohamed was very good and informative..I was a solo traveler,but i always felt safe.The Tour guides were very knowledgeable and polite.
Mohamed is a God sent. His professionalism and effective assistance regarding our trip was nothing short of outstanding. We all felt like royals in the way he treated us and in the way that he took care of all of the not-fun paperwork that is required with international travel. His politeness and incredibly deep knowledge about all things Egypt makes him someone that MUST be sought after!
I think more attention needs to be paid to flight schedules. We had some pretty early flights in our itinerary that made it very difficult with young children. We were able to change flights last minute at a unnecessary cost.
All communications with Mohamed and other Trip.Me staff were promptly, courteously and helpfully answered. Our trip was organised exactly how we wanted. We were met at the airport and escorted throughout our vacation in Egypt and Jordan except for the couple of free days we had requested. All of our guides were courteous, knowledgeable and went out of their way to take us to interesting sites, take multiple photographs in the best locations and take us to excellent restaurants. Our drivers, particularly (another Mohamed) in Cairo, were exceptional. If you have never experienced Cairo traffic you would not believe their driving skills! All of the internal flights were on regular Egypt Air flights, not some cheapo airline and we were again escorted throughout the check-in and arrival procedures to ensure nothing went wrong. Our hotels were all excellent and the cruise ship on the Nile was luxurious. In short, we cannot find a single fault with Trip.Me and their exceptional staff and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Trip.Me to anyone interested in a vacation in the area. As a sub-note, at home we have found many people who have questioned why we chose to go to Egypt and Jordan because it is so dangerous. Nothing could be further from the truth. The people in both countries are extremely friendly and rely heavily on tourism for their income. At no time did we feel even remotely threatened. The most dangerous part of the holiday was the car trip to Melbourne Airport!
From my initial enquiry through to the final itinerary Mohammed was very helpful. I changed my ideas a few times before making a final booking and Mohammed was very accommodating and ensured that my 'wish list' was fulfilled to my requirements. Moreover, the tour arranged with him in Egypt was exceptional. The guides were fantastic, everything was extremely organised and taken care of. All we had to do was enjoy the wonderful sights.
The service provided was excellent! We were greeted at the airport upon arrival and we were escorted all the way at different ports from the beginning to the time we fly off Egypt so that we didn't have to worry about any logistics. This is very important for us since we visited Egypt and Hurghada for the first time. Safety was our #1 concern before getting there and they did a very good job on this. All the travel agents we met were very nice, friendly and polite. They provided all the activities according to the itinerary without adding any other special fees. The excursions at Hurghada were excellent and we had a very relax and enjoyable time at this beach resort area. It is a resort place that you don't want to miss!
We were thrilled with the trip to Egypt & Jordan planned for us by Mohamed, and could not recommend him highly enough! The attention to detail, Mohamed's team, all accommodations, tours, and the sequence of the itinerary could not have been better. I look forward to the next visit when the new Cairo Museum opens it's doors!
Mohammed was very prompt in replying to all my emails and his delivery was superb from beginning to end.
We booked through Mohammed who was prompt, courteous n very efficient.
He was very efficient at tailoring our itinerary. The guides assigned to us were very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend his services.
Beyond knowledgeable and flexible. Total luxury experience and a fully trained archaeologist to boot!
The service provided by the Mohamed was excellent. Every step of the way, his team took care of us. I traveled with two 17 years grand daughters and was afraid of the condition in the Egypt. The travel in the Egypt was safer than any other place in the world. People were very nice and our guide Mr. Syed Salim and Yasser during our Nile Cruise were fantastic. I recommend using Mohamed for your travel in the Egypt.
Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for the excellently organised tour You took care of us all along and the arrangements were just great I shall be referring you to my friends who may be touring Egypt in future
We visited Egypt a week back and where do I start!? It was AMAZING! Starting from the perfect personal itinerary planner (Mohamed) to the fast pick up from the Airport by Tarek, knowledgeable tour guides and the friendly transfer representatives. Our tour guide during the Nile cruise (hassan) was the best tour guide we by far! *thumbs up* Mohamed's team tour took really good care throughout these 10 days and they were always punctual and professional all along. Overall we had a great time in Egypt and they did help us in making great memories! I’d totally recommend Mohamed if you’re planning to visit Egypt someday. Keep up the good work, you guys deserve it.
Everything went smoothly and organization was well thought. Mohamed's team is the best for Egypt as they take good care of the tourists and arrange high-end hotels. I had to cancel my Jordan trip due to some error on Mohamed's side but I got full refund which is a great service from their side.
Very disappointed: there were major discrepancies in the itinerary that I approved and subsequently paid for and that was experienced. I would never have accepted the schedule as it actually unfolded. This eventuated in a complete wasted day and a half and an unnecessary flight and drive in Cairo traffic to an unnecessary hotel stay. Additionally, on the advice of information presented by Mohamed, I paid for VIP management for transfers ( the crossing to Israel at Allenby in particular being recommended). The driver provided was late despite the importance of an early start being emphasized. Additionally I was then "dumped" at the gate with my luggage with no instruction as how to proceed. A very uncomfortable experience. I contacted Mohamed about this issue and he was essentially unresponsive.
Mohamed had arranged such a 7 star private culture tour for us. He and also our guide Tarek in Cairo. Mohamed in Luxor cruise has made our 9 days such a lifetime memories. Thank you for all the efforts put together for such a luxury and insightful tour. We have been recommending the trip to friends and definite come back soon!
What can I say but a fantastic Guide and so informative and patiently explained all about the sights. Made every day a fantastic experience.
Mohamed was extremely helpful and flexible. He was very responsive answering calls/messages at all times of the day/night. He was very effective in addressing any concerns I had to make the whole experience great
Very responsive, very flexible. Our Israel Visas were taking longer than usual and at the outset he assured us that he would re-calibrate it. We had issues with the first hotel and Mohamed ensured that it got sorted out immediately.
Mohamed was wonderful. He was Professional and made sure all of our needs were taken care of. All of our tour guides were kind and knowledgeable. My husband and I feel like they treated us like friends rather than customers. Sayid, Riain, and "Friday" could not have been better.
In general Mohamed was a good guide. Our only criticism is we both felt that he was rushing us at times.
He has been so prompt with his response, advice and suggestions. More than happy with his help.
The level of service and attention to detail was great. Could not have asked for a better trip.
What a wicked trip. So nice to go to places off the tourist map between Cairo and Luxor. We were pleased that they could change the itinerary to suit us and had a private tour through some fascinating places with great guides. Will recommend
It was a very good trip. Weer enjoyed it very much. Mohammed arranged things very well. May be a little more site seeing like the churches in place of marketing would have been better.
I am a travel team member with my friend Wei. The tour service is great.
Wow, where do I start... I went through trip.me as a sceptic :) but then when Mohamed got in touch and we started talking about my trip I was blown away. Firstly at he's promptness, I don't think I have ever dealt with someone who gets back to me within hours of the 50 emails that went back and forth. He tailored made our trip with the exact things I was looking for. I wish they could plan all my trips all over the world :) It was perfect, the value for the money we paid is unbelievable and worth every cent. He was prompt, accommodating and informative. The agency provides you with exceptional service from each and every tour guide, Driver and manager that assists from the minute you arrive to the minute you depart. You guys all did an incredible job and made us feel so comfortable and at home, we literally felt like royalty and didn't have to think for one second, everything was done for us. It was so well planned and Co ordinated. I would highly recommend a private tour when traveling to a place like Egypt, we had a private car and a guide to ourselves each day and I can't imagine anything worse than having to travel in a group... waiting.. waiting.. waiting. Definitely opt for the private tour. They provide you with comfort and water through each day and get you places safely. So.. our trip.. I don't know if this page will allow me to write everything I'd like to but will try:) 1: Don't be scared on arrival when your passport gets taken from you and you are escorted through everything by a representative, this is normal but my eyes widened as I didn't know what was going on. It's all good though:) Firstly Islam met me at the airport, got me through all the check Points, sorted my sim card and did a small lecture on Cairo on the way to the hotel. Through out the whole trip he was available if I had any queries or concerns, any time of the day. What an amazing human who loves his job and is definitely prefect at it. 2: Don't get frightened by the way they drive in Cairo, I had to force myself to not look at the road, where ever a car fits.. they will go. But they all seem to know what's cooking and our drivers always made us feel safe. So Our first hotel in Cairo was just amazing, la Meridien, beautiful hotel with restaurants and a coffee shop. one thing though that has to be attended to, is for them to check out the lobby bathrooms.. eek. Again not a reflection of our stay here, we had pyramid facing rooms, beautiful, comfortable and clean. Islam and Tarek even managed to get me checked in at 9 am, I arrived at 5am. I mean what hotel let's you check in at 9 am???? You guys rock! Thank you for that! Our driver KFC throughout our cairo stay, what a guy, doesn't speak much English but so humble, he even bought us a few memorabilias! Thank you for driving us around, always offering water and making my partner smoke more than he should :):):) Ahmed, our tour guide from Cairo! Wow, this man, so so so friendly, patient and so funny!!! He literally was a our private photographer and tour guide! I have more photos than I ever thought I would thanks to you! He even did this funny meme of us doing an Egyptian dance in front of the pyramids! I laughed all day! So soft natured and informative and so so friendly! He made us feel so at home. It honestly helps so much to have a private tour guide, they know how much time Is sufficient at each stop which means we never got bored or tired! Exceptional job! The Pyramids, cairo muesuem, Sphinx and the step pyramids, the Mohamed Ali mosk and the oldest Christian and Catholic Church is what we did in Cairo. All great stops and highly recommended. 3: Cairo is dirty, dunes of trash which is really sad and I hope the government at some point with help to rectify this problem. It has so much potential. 4: Please don't ride the horses or take Carts in Egypt, be responsible and see how the animals look first before you support these activities, this is one thing I Think the travel agencies in egypt should be aware of before promoting these activities to your customers, I'm not saying all but most of these horses are not treated very well, have very ill fitted tack and are very malnutritioned. We can all work together to create better awareness and education for the rights of animals. On one particular day we have lunch at a place called El Dar darak, this place served the best roasted veggies Ive ever had! What a great little place, the staff and the manager are super nice and fun, they had fun too dressing us up in egyptian attire and taking photos and laughing:) the 10 yr old door man is too cute! Loved this place, Thank you for making us feel so at home! On our last day Ahmed took us to such a cute coffee shop at the end of a long day called El fishaway, where we had mint tea and watched as life just carried on around us. You will have your fair share of vendors coming past, showing off their goodies but they move on pretty quickly. And you can actually buy gifts from them for ridiculously cheap, so support them if you want. 4: Everyone is super friendly in Egypt, apart from the one or two store keepers who get cranky when you don't buy from their stores, our guides were always advising us what to do and what not to do, what to watch out for etc. This was greatly appreciated. 5: You think that the pyramids are why you come to Egypt??? Think again! We spent 10 days in egypt and I don't think it was enough. Brace yourself for information overload and maybe make some notes as you go. It's impossible to remember all the names of each pharaoh, King and high priest! But so interesting! We then made our way to Aswan, the hotel was great, move n pick, on a small island, comfortable and clean, we spent one night here and wish that we spent 3! Beautiful scenery on the nile, gorgeous sunsets! I kind of feel that this can be your half way break, there is loads to see here but its also so beautiful to just spend a day doing nothing, having wine and watching the river. Just make sure your toilet works when you arrive :) and make sure you request a room overlooking the garden and the river. Im disappointed we didn't do the Abu Simble Temple as we didn't have time so I feel that we missed out on this. As for the felucca ride, I guess unless you do it at sunset it's not that impressive, we didn't have time when we arrived so we did it early morning but if you do a trip to the Nubian village definitely skip it because the boat ride there is better. The high dam is impressive, the history around it even more so and how it was built and why! A definite must! Philae Temple another impressive site! You will see Cleopatras cartouche engraved on the walls, so beautiful and impressive how they saved these land marks from the rising water! We did the Nubian village, this was also slightly rushed as we were pressed for time, also I don't know if this is something I would suggest. They keep crocodiles as part of their culture, in a bath tub for 20 years plus. Very sad and cruel, with plastic bottles lying in there and trash, the conditions that they are kept in if it needs to be done needs to be addressed(again something travel agencies can get involved with), we as humans are an evolving species so no reason traditions can't be kept but adjusted accordingly. Don't support it by taking pictures with crocodiles. Ayman our guide was super nice and friendly too. Our driver bahaa also really nice who got us to luxor safely after a 4 hour drive through traffic and a speed bump every km :) thank you for this! I'm sorry I didn't take the name of the gentleman who picked us up from the airport in Aswan and the driver :( also so friendly and accommodating, Thank you for taking care of us! In Luxor we stayed in Sonesta st George, Ahmed collected us from the car got us checked in and took care of everything. We literally didn't have to think about anything on this trip, which is weird for me because I am my own travel agent so I like to know what's going on, but I switched off and let them all do what they are clearly good at! Hotel was great, the view, breathtaking, definitely get the river facing room!!! Make sure you check when the house keeper cleans, that if they take something from your room ie a robe, you let the front desk know so that you don't get a call a few days after you leave asking where the missing robe went :/ Again not a reflection of the stay, it was a beautiful hotel and very comfortable! Thanks for upgrade to a suite guys :) the view of the hotair balloons over the banks and the river was so gorgeous. Our holiday to me from here was the peak! Nabil our tour guide, the most passionate guide you will ever meet! He's passion made me think twice about my career move :) and dream of studying Egyptian history and the ancient language! U can see this man is driven by his passion and his respect for the history, he has a calmness about him but also not afraid to fight for what is right, I loved this about him. The valley of the Kings and the Tombs are the most impressive and incredible sites in Egypt in my opinion, to be able to enter into tombs that tell a million stories with millions of coloured hyroglyphics engraved and painted on the wall is just breathtaking! Nabil also had us try pure sugar water from sugar cane! Weird taste but has to be tried, cane pressed through a hand made machine that chills this juice in seconds! We woke up the next morning at 430 to do a balloon ride over the valley of the Kings!!! Breathtaking!!! This most certainly has to be on your list no matter what. We had a great captain who gave us the smoothest landing and the view is just magnificent! These guys all do such a great job with these ginormous balloons and its incredible to watch how they get everything up and down. Take some money for tips, they deserve it! We did the east and west bank in Luxor, so many interesting things to discover, that I'd love to mention but I think I'm close to my review being a book! We were sad to say good bye to Nabil, he was more than accommodating and so down to earth! Our last stop took us to Sharm al shaikh , keep in mind that you have to fly via Cairo and take another flight, this is ok when you don't have delays.. very common in Egypt clearly, so take a book or two! But we did get upgraded to business class for a few flights! Hesham and Fathy , our tour guides, did a great job navigating us through the coloured canyons, taking us to a great restuarant on the water with peaceful setting and friendly staff and also getting us around safely! The canyons are guarded and not just anyone can get into there. A little eerie but it's the adventure that thrills :) We did the sunrise climb to mount Sinai, 7km climb at midnight, arriving at 5 am! Make sure you dress in layers! It gets so cold and windy up there. As for the sunrise.. I'm pretty sure the sunset would be equally impressive and less of a hassle. The walk up by moonlight as amazing though so unless it is full moon I'm sure the walk up for sunset is better without the lack of sleep, and again our bedouin guide was so great, Jamil if I remember correctly! There are small stalls along the way for coffee breaks if you are not too fit but the client isn't all that bad. On the way down though it's sad to see so much trash lying around once the sun was out, it's really really bad. It's a serious matter that can easily be address by the local authorities as well as the travel agencies that do these tours. It's a matter of telling your group that littering is prohibited and to have proper trash bins around. This is a beautiful area and just spoilt by the the amount of rubbish. As mentioned we did the coloured canyons, which is another great site! You could probably fit this in with the mountain climb for sunset if it's timed really well and you have the energy because they are in the same vicinity, I'm not really that fit but I feel like both in one day is possible. There's a lot of water activities you can do here in this are, we opted for land based activities which in my opinion were totally worth it. One thing though to be aware of, the hotel that is chosen for you here is a very commercial hotel... The Agency set the bar pretty high with all the hotels leading up to the last stop so we just felt that this was a step lower. Not that there was anything wrong with it. It was clean and beautiful and the rooms were huge, and we did enjoy a day next to the pool. This is though the holiday destination for a lot of eastern Europeans, mainly Ukrainians, again not that there was anything wrong with it, it just didn't fit the whole theme of our Egypt trip. This hotel wasn't as warm and welcoming as all the others and all we had were staff approaching us and talking in Ukrainian every 10 minutes trying to sell us water tours. (This can be avoided by getting a do not disturb sign from the pool towels station apparently). The room service orders were huge portions so bear this in mind when you order in, we felt a little bad for wasting food as we could have fed 4 more people :) so good value for money! we still had a good time! Our trip here came to an end. We had an amazing time and felt so good with each and every one of our tour guides, and drivers, they all do a phenomenal job, giving us an authentic experience, made us feel safe and feel like royalty! They do definitely go above and beyond in every single way to keep you happy! Please take cash with and tip all your guides and drivers, tipping is a common practice and frowned upon if you don't, they really do work hard and everyone deserved to be rewarded in every way! Please, if you do tip them, please do it in private and not in front of other people, we didn't know this and only found out at the end. I will do this trip again in a heart beat but I would definitely do more than 10 days! There is just so much to see! Thank you guys! We loved Egypt so much! everything was perfect and everything perfectly safe, not at one moment did we ever feel that anything was off in the slightest or feel uncomfortable! And to all our tour guides and drivers, from myself and my partner Cornel, we can't thank you enough for enriching our lives with such a unique experience that we will carry with us forever, I hope to see you guys again in the future!!!! One small tip to Local Experts is just get in touch with clients the day before arrival so that they are aware of what's happening and who is collecting them. But this is just a small suggestion and certainly not a reflection on over delivering in every way. Check out my instagram for more pics of our trip that I love sharing ❤ @Christalp10
Knowledgeable. Sincere. Passionate. I can't ask for a better tour guide
Mohamed did an excellent job at tailoring the trip to our specific needs and desires. I was very pleased with our communication as well as his ability to anticipate what we might like and make recommendations. Overall I think he did a very good job.
The travel agency provided a great service. Trip.me put us in touch with Mohamed. Mohamed organised our itinerary based on what we required. Communication was easy and quick. The trip was great from start to finish. From the moment we arrived at Cairo airport until we left Egypt, the local egntswere there to help and support us. We felt completely safe and relaxed for the whole week.
Mohamed made planning our trip very easy. He paid attention to our requests and was always available to make sure we were satisfied with the arrangements. We asked for a private tour and that is what we got. The guides and transportation were always at our beckoned call and the knowledge of our guides was far beyond our expectations. Sama on the Nile Cruise was outstanding ( friendly, knowledgeable and it was a pleasure to be touring with him. The only guide that was a little below expectations was the one at Abu Simble. His presentation lacked personality and it felt like a recording, Over all the trip was outstanding and the memories will stand out as the best trip ever.
Mohamed prepared an excellent Itinerary in which some of it was tailormade to suit our requirements. He did a great job conversing with us to ensure all details were covered. Everything went to plan and was above and beyond what was expected. This was because we had Usama Othman (Sam), the best Local Guide any Tourist could ask for in Egypt and our safe and skillful Driver, Imam. We scored the "A Team". These Guys were amazing Ambassadors for their Country and true Gentleman. We were like a Family. Sam was a wealth of knowledge on all subject matter and extremely helpful with all our needs and wants. The trip would not have been a success that it was without his passion and devotion. I cannot praise Sam enough. We will define toy use his services again when we return to explore the south of Egypt.
Mohamed was very helpful and changed the itinerary to suit our needs as we wished. He was available any time to answer questions we had regarding our trip.
This review is for Amira.Amira is supper great!!! she will surprise you by her service. She answer every and each question that I had. she arrange our trip in a great way and exactly I would dream about it. She even went beyond that and help me in some part that was not about the tour. She is amazing !
This review is for Amira.At our great surprise, No detailed program was provided, not before, not on arrival. First day we wasted precious time since the pickup time was delayed last minute, by more than an hour. During the whole trip we did not have any info on which sites would be visited when and for how long. We had to rush each time to visit temples, limited explanation was given and almost no time (15 to 20 min) for free photo time before rushing again. Especially Abu Simbel, leave at 340 to pick up other guests at other boats … drive 3 hours + 3 back to visit during 50 min ! Also Indian people should not be put in the same group as European since (confirmed by the guide) they are unpleasant but more importantly never on time, causing us to rush or have no time afterwards. over, extra visits outside the program are extremely overpriced. Valley of Queens and Hatshepsut should be included normally and not for 25 £ + 1200 EL where entrance tickets are normally between 100 and 200 EL ! Last day we canceled hotel pickup to airport and scheduled a trip outside your company for a much better price.
This review is for Amira.Amira promised top notch travel plan before our payment done, then she had to downgraded sooo many details after she received payment. I guess she wants to deliver everything as she planned but less than 1 month for departure day for Christmas break did not allow her to do so. We had a little though time with her, but at the end, with help of trip.me, everything went smooth and had a great time during our trip!
This review is for Amira.Excellent service and care all the way
This review is for Amira.Very responsive, good knowledge
This review is for Amira.Trip was great
This review is for Amira.I rate Amira excellent. All her email replies were fast. Our planning to Egypt was less than two weeks. By simply telling Amira what I would be interested in the visit for example, the UNESCO sites and monuments, she worked out for us a comprehensive program that had us visited almost all the famous sites. She has been very accommodating to our request in terms of accommodation arrangement. Yes, me and my friend are happy with her.
This review is for Amira.The arrangements were all professionally done and there were no hick-ups.

This review is for Amira.I actually worked with Mohamed who is a colleague of Amira. Mohamed was extremely helpful in planning out our family trip to Egypt. He gave me great suggestions all of which I took and was I was very pleased with the results. This was our first “organized tour” trip, and it was an excellent experience! Thank you Amira and a Mohamed.
This review is for Amira.But I think we could just take 2 hotel rooms instead of 3. The room was big enough for 4 persons. In our last day, six of us made it into 2 connecting rooms. The other room was just wasted.
This review is for Amira.Amira was extremely helpful to me in preparing for my trip to Egypt. She answered all my questions & was very polite. The representatives from trip.me were very professional & accommodating. We were met at the airport & whisked away to our hotel by Ahmed, a tour representative who went above & beyond to take care of us. He was also friendly & engaging. Our Cairo guide, Rania was very helpful & friendly. She knew everything about the Pyramids & Egypt's history. In Luxor we had another wonderful tour guide named Ash. The whole experience was truly inspiring!
This review is for Amira.Amira expertly coordinated a somewhat complicated schedule having numerous destinations and multiple travelers from several locations joining the tour a different times! Amira was patient and professional as it took over 80 emails to agree upon a final itinerary. We were so impressed with her skills that we insisted upon meeting her during our stay in Cairo to personally thank her for her services. We visited the following sites over 20 days in Egypt, Jordan and Israel: Cairo Pyramids, Sphinx, Memphis, Saqqara, Egyptian Museum, Citadel with Mohamed Ali Mosque, Old Cairo, Abu Simbel, Nile Cruise from Aswan to Luxor, High Dam, Temple of Philae, Nubian Village, Kom Ombo, Edfu, Esna, Luxor, Luxor Hot Air Balloon, West Bank (Valley of Kings, Hatshepsut and Memmon temple), East Bank (Karnak & Luxor temples); Jordan: Jerash, Ajlun, Madaba, Mt. Nebo, Petra, Wadi Rum, Dead Sea; Israel/Palestine: Jerusalem Old and New City tours, Bethlehem, Tel Aviv, and Jaffa. Our guides and drivers were personable and attentive especially to the needs of two travelers with mobility issues. The guides were punctual and masters of all related subjects. Although we paid trip.me $140 each for the VIP crossing from Jordan to Israel at the Allenby Bridge, it still seemed a bit confusing especially when asked to pay an additional 15 JD each for the Jordanian departure tax even though Amira told us to expect this. Only one disappointment: We opted out of the Pyramids Light Show for a dinner near the Pyramids, which was overpriced ($45 each) and mediocre with poor service.
This review is for Amira.I can't thank Amira enough. From the moment I contacted her she has been amazing. Amira tailor made the holiday for me and every aspect was perfect. She answered all of my questions and gave advice to make my holiday perfect. I was very impressed with the service. Egypt has been one of my favourite holidays, the sites, hotels, restaurants, guides and transport was outstanding. I would definitely book with trip.me again.
This review is for Amira.I got confirmation of the hotel the day I flew out! Very stressful. I wasn't picked up from the airport. They tried to change both our hotels after we paid the funds (and had agreed on the itinerary and hotels). It was Very stressful. I wouldn't want the same experience repeated.
For me, it is super important that all our travelers have a great experience. Unfortunately, there were some changes in the hotels and we have found a solution that is as good or even better for Paula.
In regards to the arrival in Hurghada Airport, there was a tour leader and a car waiting for Paula, the problem was that they did not meet once she arrived, while it took some time for Mohamed to connect them because they were waiting in different places. At the end, they could meet and she was already driven to the hotel as per plan.
Because of the high season, we heart quite late that some of the hotel rooms were canceled and not available anymore. Le Meridien Pyramids was not available on the specific date and together with my colleague we made some changes, which made it possible to stay there. The other hotel was the Hilton in Hurghada. Paula accepted our recommendation for the Marriott Hotel as long as it is a Sea View Room, so we booked it upon her acceptance.
This review is for Amira.Good planning, few flaws in the execution. Never received detailed itineraries ( sightseeing, regional flights schedules) which caused some confusion.
This review is for Amira.We had an absolutely amazing time. Your Egypt experts, from our lovely Amira Geneina, my email contact for almost a year, to our Tour Leader, Ahmed Sayed Mohamed, to our beloved and beyond excellent Egyptologist Alaa Rashwan (who taught us to read some of the simpler Hieroglyphics by the end of our tour)...amazing, also,Amani Rahib, another of our excellent tour guides, and also, the Drivers, Faisal Hussien and Mustafa in Luxor....brilliant!! We all met as strangers, but strangely enough, we left as good friends with whom we shall remain in contact via our Facebook pages. Everything was expertly arranged and organized and we experienced no issues what-so-ever. A dream come true vacation, to say the least, and one that we very well may repeat in the not so distant future. I give everyone involved, a 6 out of 5, that's how impressed we were with the quality and delivery of all the services offered to us during this trip. Everyone, and l mean everyone, bent over backwards to accommodate any and all concerns during our stay. A most amazing trip, only possible because of the wonderful services of such a large group of amazing people. Thank-you all from the bottom of our hearts and hope to see you all again in the not so distant future. Shalom.
This review is for Amira.in general the trip was organised quite well, however the itinerary which I thought we were following was changed without my prior knowledge, the whole trip was quite rushed an optional trip to Abu simble was not possible because there was not enough time, which was disappointing, and yet I was taken back to Cairo where I had 2 free days.
This review is for Amira.Sweet Amira, was the constant, friendly professional, who never tired of my incessant questions, emails or itinerary changes during this last year. She was with us from start to finish and my only regret is that l ran out of time and didn't have the chance to meet and thank her in person. Wonderful, knowledgeable woman. Thank-you so much Amira for all that you did on our behalf.
This review is for Amira.My trip to Egypt was truly wonderful. I found Trip.Me's Egypt agent Amira to be professional, reliable, efficient and well-priced. I went as a solo woman traveller and loved every minute. I got them to arrange airfares as well as ground content and Nile cruise. It's Egypt, so things will always be slightly chaotic, but that's all part of the adventure ! Airport transfers varied from rusty, dusty little cars to rusty, dusty vans but day tour trips were in clean, modern cars. The guides were professional and knowledgeable. I chose the Luxury accommodation option ... Sheraton Cairo and Alexander the Great Nile cruise boat ... and I was totally delighted with both hotel room and cabin/boat/food. All costs were prepaid online. The only incidental expenses are paying to take photos in temples and optional add-on excursions like Valley of the Queens and hot air ballooning in Luxor (say yes to both!) ... the sound and light shows are a waste of money....and tipping. Your tips are effectively the guides' and drivers' salaries so allow and change into Egyptian pounds about USD30 per day into Egyptian pounds for tipping and photography. I would not hesitate to use trip.me and their chosen agent in Egypt again, have recommended them to my friends and several are planning trips already.
This review is for Amira.Our itinerary was for a family of eight. Our dates and plans were changed several times and Amira was very helpful and quick at reorganizing for us. She efficiently fit in all the extras we wanted such as Suez, Abu Simbel overnight and Siwa. We are extremely happy with her services.
This review is for Amira.tip.Me was a very easy platform to use and connected me to Amira in Egypt. It was much easier than finding local guides on my own. Amira customized our tour with private guides and drivers, making the experience far better than a general "Group" tour. Our guides were professional and very knowledgeable on all things Egypt.
This review is for Amira.Amira prepared a well organized trip for us and mostly everything went smoothly. Our one disappointment was there ended up being a few touristy stops added to our agenda that we were not very interested in and would rather have not spent our time at. These were not on our agenda and were not really discussed with us. I realize some people would find them interesting, but we were not consulted.
This review is for Amira.I am really appreciated about her support
This review is for Amira.From the start, Amira addressed any concerns I had, so that I had absolutely no qualms when booking my trip. The trip itself also went smoothly, with all my requirements well catered to. Should I have the opportunity again I will certainly avail of Trip.me's services.
This review is for Amira.My wife and I had a wonderful trip to Egypt. Amira did a fantastic job to organized everything at our convenience. She answered all our questions and requests. It was a great experience from start to finish with no surprises. Before we left for Egypt, all our friends and family were worried that it was a dangerous destination. Do not be afraid to go there, we never felt any danger during the whole trip. Thank you Amira for your work; we will never forget our trip in your beautifull country.

This review is for Amira.Amira was extremely helpful and accommodating in all my requests and needs. Everything promised was delivered. Great service!
This review is for Amira.Amira arranged our private tour that included all the sites and activities we asked for. Memphis tours had guides and drivers with us from Cairo airport until we boarded our flight back to Canada. They even had a guide aboard the Nile river cruise. Meridian Pyramids hotel was very good. The guides were pleasant and well informed. The cruise ship Mirage 1 was dated and tired looking, however, it was clean and the staff were attentive. Thanks Amira.

This review is for Amira.Amira was brilliant. Service provided by the agency's manager Nadir, tour guides Ahmed, Hassan, driver Mr. Maghdi were excellent to say the least. Transfers were seamless and precise. My sincere thanks to Shirley from Trip.me for introduction to Memphis tours for my 7 day tour of Egypt. Thank you.
This review is for Amira.I really enjoyed working with Amira. She LISTENS! I told her what I wanted to see in Egypt and she came up with a near perfect itinerary booked with the local agency. This was in contrast to some of my experiences working with other agents on other websites. Our trip was wonderful, reasonably priced and well run.

This review is for Amira.This trip was a memorable one. This tour was very organised and always punctual .The tour leaders very knowledgeable on history of Egypt. The boat cruise was excellent, the food on the ship was super. The cruise will make you feel you are going back in time.
This review is for Amira.Our excursion to Cairo by Amira was extremely well organized from the time we landed and we're picked up at the airport to the time we were dropped of at the airport we got star treatment. The guides were EXTREMELY knowledgeable (excellent work Ash) and enjoyed the Egyptian food tremendously. Each step of your tour you are escorted with personal service. Loved the Valley of the Kings. Also, we had a couple of minor problems that were dealt with swiftly and satisfactorily. But all in all really was able to experience Egypt!
This review is for Amira.I can't say enough words to describe how pleased we are with Amira. We had a wonderful time, and the team of tour manager, tour guides, and drivers were EXCEPTIONAL, & PHENOMENAL !!!
This review is for Amira.Amira was extremely friendly, efficient and was extremely approachable. She helped to recommend sights to see, hotels and she helped to secure air flight. She really helped to ease my stress with the planning and itinerary.

This review is for Amira.Planning the trip with Amira’s help have been excellent. Right from the start, Amira was very responsive to my enquiries (always respond within less than a day), and I was able to customise the trip based on my needs. As the date to the trip gets closer, she continued to keep in touch and even provided her direct mobile in case we needed to wazapp her. We were very pleased with them once we arrived and through the trip, we were well taken care of by all the staff which were all very professional. Highly recommend their service.

This review is for Amira.Amira provided sound professional service at all times, she was responsive and timely and never gave us any doubts or concerns
This review is for Amira.During last week, we had a wonderful tour to Egypt. We have only good words to talk about them. They are true professionals and very punctual. Since they have offices all over Egypt there was always someone to receive us wherever we went. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The only negative is about the hotel in Giza (Cairo Pyramids). They say it is 5 star, but facilities are much less than that of a 3 star. No kettle, cups in the room. The bath room drainage is not proper. Also Wi Fi is always having problems. Many times they gave us the Wi Fi password which was not working. Probably a strategy to overcome shortage of data. I should mention one of our guides Mr. Ahmed who doubles as a photographer too. He has taken many good photographs for us. Before the start of the tour, we had a little apprehension about the safety and water quality in Egypt. I can assure any prospective tourist that Egypt is as safe as any other place in the world and a piece of advice is to drink bottled water always.
This review is for Amira.Amira planned the most fantastic holiday to Egypt for us. She was available to answer my endless questions. Every person who works at Memphis knows exactly what their job is and does it with excellence.
This review is for Amira.Our trip was outstanding! We are not high maintenance travelers and like to take things as they come so we didn’t need a lot of handholding. Amira was prompt with her communication and accurate in her suggestions. The trip included everything she promised and we were taken care of at every turn. There was never any confusion and Ehab (the guy in the field) was easy to reach via WhatsApp and Facebook messenger. He met us at the terminal and walked us through getting our visa and customs. Handled our luggage and got us to the hotel. He checked us in and made sure we had everything we needed. From there we were handed off to Memphis tours. Upon our return to Cairo, he met us again and was with us until we parted ways again at airport security. While I’m sure we could have navigated the entire trip without them, having a local there to lead us through the process was invaluable. As I said, the trip was flawless for their portion and an incredible value for the $. We opted for highest level of accommodations and it was still very affordable. The only thing I would have changed and might suggest Trip.me get more involved in would have been the flights. I decided to book our own flights and as a result, our arrival and departure was poorly planned due to not factoring in the time change vs. the itinerary. Not their fault by any. Just book flights carefully.
This review is for Amira.Amira was incredibly quick to respond and very helpful. She listened to what I asked and made recommendations and accommodations. She helped this planning process go very smoothly.
This review is for Amira.Excellent support and service from Amira. My itinerary for Egypt was fabulous, just what I had planned and the actual trip exceeded my expectations.

This review is for Amira.MY PARTNER AND I SIMPLY LOVED IT! Right from the very beginning to the very end of our 8 days trip to Cairo! Being frequent travellers due to the nature of our jobs jet-setting and being in all corners of the world, Cairo was simply magical. We would like to thank everyone from Amira's team and Memphis Tour for taking care of us. We've been warned about untrustworthy tour groups but we were glad we booked with Memphis. Everyone from the tour leaders to the guides and even the drivers don a polo tee with the Memphis Tour brand, a sight we didnt see from any other tour groups. Upon arrival in Cairo, we were immediately greeted by our tour leader, Mohamed, who managed our bags and clearance through the airport and escorted us to the car. We were delighted to know that the cars arranged throughout the trip had WI-FI! Couldnt help but to post our trip photos for the Gram'. We took the river cruise from Aswan to Luxor and was upgraded to be onboard the Sonesta Star Goddess and was given the Suite on the portside of the ship. At no point were our suite facing another ship when we were alongside at the ports and the ship docks on the starboard side. We would also like to commend on the crew onboard Sonesta Star Goddess for their wonderful service. We kept looking forward to dining as the service crew was outstanding and the food was well prepared. Throughout the cruise, our guide Sam was very very knowledgeable and was always ready to tackle any questions we threw at him. He ensured that we were well taken care of and safe throughout the cruise. We were swarmed by shopkeepers trying to make us purchase items at their stores a few times and we rescued by Sam who gave a stern warning when he found that the shopkeepers were making us uncomfortable. Do take the time during the free period onboard the cruise to engage the guide with questions about Egypt as they are certified Egyptologist. We ended burning an hour just satisfying our curiosities. We paid additional tours for the hot air balloon ride in Luxor and it was money well spent! Memphis Tours ensured that we had one of the best pilots available for our balloon. We also took an additional tour for a horse ride around Luxor, it was one of our highlights for the trip as we took the right timing and was riding down the Sphinx river with the sunset in the background. Coming back to Cairo, we had a tour that started in the morning from our always-smiling guide Ahmed. He arrived much earlier than the arranged timing and were patient with us as when informed we needed an additional 20 minutes to finish up breakfast. Our tour to the Great Pyramids was very well explained and the best part was Ahmed has very good photography skills! The photos that he took from us came out real good! We took the camel ride from the Panorama Lookout point to the Sphinx, the ride was around 45 minutes. Ahmed ensured we had a young and friendly camel driver. We rode to a lookout point where we could see the view of all 9 pyramids. Jamal, the young camel handler, was very creative with his shots and we had lots of fun and interesting photos! Ahmed was very clear with his explanations at the museum, we ended or final day in Cairo chilling, smoking a Shisha, having mint tea and people watching at a cafe in the market. We felt safe throughout our trip in Egypt under the watchful eyes of our guides. I would truly recommend Memphis Tours for anyone planning to travel to Egypt. Do request for the hardworking young dad, Ahmed, upon visiting Cairo as your guide (he's the one in the uploaded photo) and also Sam if you're planning to do the Nile Cruise! Cheers to Memphis Tours!
This review is for Amira.We just visited Cairo and Nile cruise. We were very happy with the service you provided during our whole trip. It was awesome!! We would recommend hightly to book through trip me. There was WiFi in the car through out and water was provided through put in that hot temperature. The trip was relaxing and informative. The guide was very knowlageble and made our tip enjoyable:) we will forward to book another trip through you for sure!!!
This review is for Amira.I traveled with my two grandsons. Tour guides were exceptional. Very organized and attentive. Adjusted tours to fit into our interests. Amr in Cairo was great and Ruby and our Luxor guide went out of their for us
This review is for Amira.Amira helped enormously with all the details for this trip - she always contacted me promptly to help wit any queries I had. The trip was fantastic - I have never done a tour before and this trip to Egypt surpassed my expectations. If I had any criticism, it would be that the visit to the Nubian village (an extra) was absolutely not worth it and I felt it was a tacky tourist scam.
This review is for Amira.It was great working with Amira to book my trip to Egypt! She responded in a timely manner and was very accomodating to help me get the best tour option. All of the memphis tourguides were so enthusiastic and knowledgeable... It made my experience of Egypt absolutely wonderful. Thank you!!

This review is for Amira.We just arrived back home from a 21 day trip to Jordan and Egypt custom designed in conjunction with Iva. They pulled off the trip without a single issue. We have never experienced a better run operation in what we considered to be a tough itinerary. The entire trip was spot on. The guides, drivers, hotels, and cruise ship were all top shelf, and we were treated like royalty every step of the way. We can not say enough on how Iva, the agency, and trip.me made this a memorable trip for us.

This review is for Amira.Right from the first email providing me a first draft of my itinerary, Amira was always hands on and into it 110%. At not one point did I feel I was being rushed into making a booking. All of my questions, no matter how big or small, were accommodated, and answered in perfect detail! Last minute questions, doubts, changes were all taken into consideration with no further questions asked. Even questions not directly related to the itinerary, but impacting the trip as a whole were answered. The whole process was so quick as well. Amira was always available via phone, email and WhatsApp to answer my questions and even though given the huge time difference between Australia and Egypt, our communication wasn't affected in the least, which allowed me to make fast and informed decisions. I cannot recommend Amira and trip.me enough. Shukran Amira for all your time, effort and help.

This review is for Amira.She was prompt and responded on time. I was expecting an e-mail just few days before the trip to make sure everything is in order, I didn't hear anything, I contacted her and she said someone will be at airport and everything is fine. Also our flight from Luxor to Cairo wasn't booked at all, we went to airport with the group and did find out ours is not booked, they handled it well, they took us back to the hotel and booked for another flight at midnight. Considering the situation they handled it well but I don't know why our flight wasn't booked.
This review is for Amira.Our trip far surpassed the expectations we may have had. The hospitality was first class all round. We were greeted at the airport by a welcoming Terk(legend) who showed up on time. The company was very professional and covered every aspect of our holiday. We did not find our selves having to spend extra money ,every thing they promised they delivered. The two amigos I called them sherif and Magdi will forever stay in our hearts. Sherif was our guide ,with a warm ,kind and friendly manner. There was not much he did not know about ancient Egypt a true scholar of Egyptology. I will cherish the intellectual conversations we had. What i most appreciated what's that when he was not sure you would be the First to say I don't know, but I will look that up for you. Magdi was the driver who could navigate his was out off any situation. Thank you for getting us round Egypt safely. Thank you to the whole team for you professionalism.

This review is for Amira.We were very nervous about booking a trip with the family to Egypt given the revolution in 2011... but Amira was phenomenal with communication on what to expect and customizing our tour to suite our needs and family. There was always someone from her team at every single turn ie. airport/ boat etc. We did not have to worry about a thing. The guides, both in Cairo (Doha) and down south (Medhat) were absolutely brilliant. They made our trip magical. My wife and I went to Egypt 18 years prior and now with the kids... we have never felt more safe than this time. We loved it!
This review is for Amira.I booked the trip months out and through out the whole time Amira would always be contactable and very informative.

This review is for Amira.I gave them 3 hours to book all my stuff. I’m a flight attendant and so I fly standby I didn’t know if I’d get on a flight to Cairo but ended up getting on last minute. As soon as I did I paid for the tour and let them know. When I landed three hours later I had someone to greet me and take me to my hotel.

This review is for Amira.Ms. Amira was perfect! She was always quick to reply, pleasant, and never pushy.
This review is for Amira.A big thank you to Amira for being my email correspondent from Trip.me and the local agency and helping me plan my itinerary and booking my 10 day trip to Egypt. Answering all my questions and doubts, and adjusting to my wants and needs. Thank you for helping me with such a memorable and wonderful trip! Everything was so well organized and the local agencywere all very helpful with their advise and suggestions. I just came back to the US after a 10 day, 9 night vacation to Egypt with the very well organized and professional services via Trip.me. From airport pickup, help getting my entry Visa, customizing my itinerary to my liking, taking care of all transportation, hotels, booking my Nile cruise, flights within Egypt, entry tickets to sites, and the best, most knowledgeable, and friendliest tour guides and drivers available. Egypt is a beautiful country with kind, great, and wonderful people. With visitors of all ages (even children, elderly people, and entire families) from all over the world. Not once did I feel unsafe or had any problems or issues. And everyone I met who was also visiting was also having a great time, taking lots of pictures, enjoying the wonderful food, and having a memorable trip and holiday in Egypt. Highly recommended! If you ever dreamed of or wanted to go Egypt, do it with Amira!
This review is for Amira.Overall I was disappointed with this portion of the trip. We received no read ahead about what to expect on the trip, particularly on the Nile River Cruise portion. I repeatedly asked for any information regarding weather, clothing, upcoming elections, events, etc., and received nothing. When I first contacted trip.me and indicated what I was interested in seeing in Egypt I was sent a very basic proposed itinerary. Other guests on the boat had detailed times, dates, and information regarding meals, special dinners, entertainment and more detailed information about the daily tours. We knew nothing. For instance, on Thursday evening, the last night on the boat, there was an "Egyptian" dinner, complete with authentic Egyptian dress, food, etc. Many folks came prepared for this event with clothing they could wear to the dinner which made them feel more included. We were able to purchase basic items at the ship's store, but again, being more prepared would have been things much easier.
Response from the local expert Amira:
Dear Ms. Gail, Thank you for your review. We try very hard to provide the best service for our guests before arrival and once they are in Egypt and we are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We have a custom of sending short itineraries to our guests to make sure that all sightseeing is clearly visible day by day and is not lost in the context. We are happy to provide a detailed itinerary should the guests so require. With every offer we also send a link to the official Nile cruise website (which we inform you of in our introductory email sent to you on Dec 4th) where you can see the photos, detailed itineraries and amenities of the boat. With regards to the Egyptian dinner – all the guests, no matter which company they travel with, buy the Egyptian attire, namely galabeyas and head scarves, from the shop on the Nile Cruise.

This review is for Amira.A memorable experience that couldn't have been busier or more fun. Our tour guides were with us each step of the way through our journey hosting us through 3 cities and over a dozen historical cities. The people were warm and helpful wherever we went...definitely heading back to explore more.
This review is for Amira.Trip-me and Amira's team were really well organized. We were a ladies group of 12 and their guides, transport etc were fantastic. Airport pick up and drop offs were good and hotel check-ins a big help. All staff we dealt with when booking, were well informed and helpful. We would recommend this company.
This review is for Amira.This traveller just left a 5-star review.
This review is for Amira.The company and all their staff, without exception, worked hard to ensure we received what we wanted. We were more interested in archaeology than most, their staff swapped times and places to cater for our interests. Well done!
This review is for Amira.She knew better than I did in terms of organizing and I consider myself well organized. Amira was organized, prompt and very professional. She knew thee right combinations of busy sightseeing and relaxed riverboat and beach time. She was correct in everything she conveyed to me. Would have enjoyed meeting her.
This review is for Amira.Amira provided a excellent service for me, she gave me her undivided attention whenever I had questions or needed advice, she was quick and efficient and very easy to talk to, she is knowledgeable in her field and I highly recommend using her.
This review is for Amira.Amira is a very knowledgeable and helpful travel professional. We are a widely-traveled couple, so we have a great deal of experience in using travel agents. Amira is among the best we have dealt with.
This review is for Amira.I am a well-traveled senior citizen who normally travels by backpack and arranges all of my own hotels, tickets and airlines. Going to Egypt was leaving me with a sense of uncertainty and I reached out to trip.me to inquire how they could serve me and found a very good itinerary before me. Having just recently returned from Egypt, I can highly recommend the connections and arrangements they made for me. My guides were well-trained, the drivers very competent and my accommodations were very comfortable. I asked that my tour include history and cultural elements and I found it to be very informative, comfortable and safe. I would be glad to answer any specific questions you may have as a traveler and would recommend Amira's team, who actually provided the personnel.
This review is for Amira.We were in contact with Amira and she awnsered all of our questions in a timely manner. She was very helpful in personalizing our trip. If she felt it was unsafe to go to any destination in Egypt we requested she let us know which made me feel safer and confident in booking our vacation.
This review is for Amira.The trip was absolutely wonderful and went beyond my expectations. Amira was the perfect guide for my tour in Cairo. She was personable, knowledgeable and always the professional.

This review is for Amira.Amira was great at tailoring our tour. She made all the changes we asked for in a very timely manner. The tour itself was great with the help of her team. We would definitely recommend their services.
This review is for Amira.Amira listened to every thought I had and helped me determine how to fit as much into our visit as possible. She made suggestions at every turn, and planned the most efficient itinerary for our time there. Everyone connected with Amira provided us with first class service, and truly seemed to enjoy their jobs.
This review is for Amira.Our trip was more than great and wonderful, it was a Nile cruise from Luxor to Aswan for 4 nights in Sonesta St. George The ship was clean and nice, the staff are amazing, the food is good, the sights of visits were amazing and of course Amira and Mohamed were helpful and amazing
This review is for Amira.My wife and I visited Egypt over New Year 2017/18, and were blown away by the incredible service we received from Amira's team. From collection at the airport to all transport, tours and services, the entire team were world class. We flew into Cairo at 1am, yet were met by Amira's team with broad smiles and a seamless transition through immigration and customs. We visited Luxor and sailed down the Nile visiting various sites, and again the team were amazing. Our guide over this period was Ahmed Gomaa, aka Friday, and I highly recommend him. Kind, funny, intelligent and accommodating, you will learn a lot about Egypt and probably yourself from Ahmed, including a bit of Arabic. From Aswan we flew back to Cairo, and we were fortunate enough to have Medhat Mahmoud as our guide. A true character, Medhat really brought the Pyramids and Giza to life for us. He's also a surprisingly gifted photographer, and took some incredible holiday snaps for my wife and I with our camera... Bottom line: if you're considering Egypt, GO! It is safe and magical, and the people are incredibly friendly. And when you do go to Egypt, book with Amira. Enjoy!
This review is for Amira.Very good in general, however not really possible to make major custom changes that go outside the framework of the tour as it was originally planned. The level of attention was good but not that of an ever-present concierge. Very good value for money - we paid less than half if we had booked through Abercrombie and Kent but enjoyed the same boat, guides on the boat and hotels. The guides in the city, however, were not of the same caliber, but were adequate for our needs.
This review is for Amira.Very good service, very reactive and cater to our needs.
This review is for Amira.This traveller just left a 5-star review.
This review is for Amira.She kind, adjusted everything to our needs, answered questions, had (very) quick response time. All in all NOTHING to blame her for, just excellent service
This review is for Amira.The experience was amazing to me and my family. The trip was very well organized and included experienced guides.
This review is for Amira.Every aspect was covered, from airport arrival logistics to complete tour guidance. We as an American family with our 14 year-old felt very safe. Highly recommended.
This review is for Amira.We not long ago arrived home after a fabulous 8 days in Egypt organised faultlessly by Amira and her team. Starting in Cairo we were welcomed by Islam (tour manager) and driven by Fasal. Islam remained our main contact point throughout the 8 days and was able to take care of everything along the way, Islam has a vibrant personality and couldn’t have been more helpful for us. On trips like this it is the little things that separate the very best from the best, like being met by Islam on arrival and prior to immigration where he took care of everything even fast tracking us to our luggage and helping us organize some sim cards for our mobile phones. Fasal deserves a special mention because driving in Cairo is a unique experience in itself and that is saying something for someone who has recently visited Sri Lanka, Vietnam & Cambodia and lives in Abu Dhabi (which is like living and driving in an action movie). Islam stayed with us and ensured that checking into the Four Seasons First Residences Hotel went smoothly before leaving us for a spectacular night of rest and relaxation at what has to be one of Egypt’s true 5 star hotels. The front façade and foyer of the hotel is understated by world standards but the rooms are spacious, beautifully appointed with breathtaking views of the Nile and the service is second to none.
The first evening and next day Shareef (tour guide) helped make a long day very memorable, his knowledge of Egyptian history and a wonderful manner of imparting information were world class. There were many highlights including must do’s such as the pyramids and sphinx sound and light show, the guided tour of the pyramid and sphinx the next day and the visit to the Egyptian museum to name a few. Next up it was the Nile cruise on the Sonesta St George cruise ship from Luxor to Aswan. Again everything was organized by Amira including transfers to domestic flights and express checking-in at the hectic airport. Once we arrived in Luxor a short bus trip to the cruise ship with our guide (Ahmed El Prince) organizing everything and keeping us up to date with all the upcoming experiences each day. Everyday was planned perfectly to minimize the crowds at these exquisite Temples and Ahmed’s passion for history, his deep love of Egypt and experience dealing with a plethora of cultures/tourists really shone through.
We covered all of the significant historical sights in the West Bank of Luxor, the Valley of the Kings, Edfu Temple, the High Dam, Temple of Philae and a great experience visiting the Nubian village (at an extra cost). This part of the trip was punctuated with magnificent meals on the Sonesta St. George with evening entertainment and impeccable service that gave us a real insight into the welcoming nature of the Egyptian people albeit through the waiters and the ships managers but nonetheless their friendliness was obviously genuine and willingly given.
People who follow me on social media like me to be honest so there a couple of things I should mention the Sound and Light shows, Nubian Village and Abu Simbel Temple tour (6-7hour trip) are all additional costs not mentioned in the excluded services. The included services mentioned an Egyptian SIM card or loan phone, which never happened and the free Wi-Fi on all onboard vehicles was a bit hit and miss. Also the Sonesta St George cruise ship needs to get into the 21st Century and offer free Wi-Fi across the entire ship whilst docked, I understand the challenges for reception during cruising but only having Wi-Fi available in reception at a cost whilst in port is no longer satisfactory in today's day and age. Cruising the Nile is one of my bucket list wishes and now I can tick this spectacular experience off my list with absolutely no regrets. Finally we flew back to Cairo for one more night at the Four Seasons First Residences Hotel we were then transferred to the Airport for the final time and home before Christmas, after this I am not that fussed about what Santa brings me… bloody brilliant trip.
This review is for Amira.My trip was very good, all went according to my planned itinerary. We did not have any problem. All tour guides and managers and drivers in each city took really good care of us. I would definitely recommend Trip.me to others. Amira did good job. Tour Manager in Cairo Mr. Islam, in Luxor Mr. Karin, and Mr. Waalid in Aswan made our trip so easy and they were there to take care of us every step of the way. Tour guides Mr. Rich in Cairo, Mr. Mahmoud in Hurghada and other guides at all other places were very good. Over all Amira did deliver what was promised.
This review is for Amira.Her services were professional, quick to reply back, simple and easy. Everything I asked her, she went above and beyond. I asked only for a couple of things in my itinerary and she put in so much more for things to view and see!! Will never forget this trip ever!! Special mention to Mahmoud Abd El Ghadi, our wonderful knowledgeable tour guide and taxi driver!! Amazing!! Mahmoud made us feel safe at all times, talked about the history in simple terms, we could grasp the knowledge he provided easily even though there was so much to know, he was so good that when we had other tour guides and they take us to places we could link everything Mahmoud told us and remember!! He was amazing!! He has done tours about 2000 to 3000 times but he made us feel it was the first time, didn't make it boring or rushed!! Thank you so much Mahmoud!! Our taxi driver, thank you thank you!!
Amira, you did such a great job sorting our holiday and what a wonderful staff you have!! We are planning another trip this Oct and want to stop in Egypt for a few days n will go through your team again!! Thank you for everything!! Everything ran smoothly, we didn't have to worry about a thing!!
This review is for Amira.Amira is truly EXCEPTIONAL, and ONE of a KIND in the tourism industry! During my many travels across the globe with many tour companies, I have NEVER come across with anyone who is as GOOD as Amira! She planned our trip A to Z with so much care, and her attention to details made our group of 9 people feel so comfortable, safe and secure. Our 13-day trip from Cairo to the Nile Cruise to Abu Simbel and then to Alexandria was memorable that fulfilled a lifelong dream. When we wanted to change our day trip to Alexandria to an overnight trip she did it within a couple of days notice. We were so impressed with Amira that we are already planning our next trip to Egypt to see the places that we missed this time around.
This review is for Amira.Amira was very responsive and has excellent customer service. She crafted an itinerary that exactly fit my desire.
This review is for Amira.I booked my trip through Mohamed Abdeltawab at Tripme . I was constantly in touch with Mohamed on WhatsApp planning our tour and making changes. Mohamed was extremely patient and helpful. Due to the delay in our flights from Toronto we missed the connecting flights and I was on WhatsApp again with Mohamed and he rearranged our tour. It was done so smoothly and all last minute changes were accommodated. I cannot thank Mohamed enough for organizing such a excellent tour for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip.
This review is for Amira.Amira is the safest, friendly, well designed, well planned a tour operator. Guides appointment who were well read, thorough and excellent communication. Their understanding of the culture and history not only clear but also they are respectful. They speak right (grammar and pronunciation both) English. The hotels, car, driver , cruise were flawless. In one word, I felt home in abroad
This review is for Amira.Thank you so much for our warm reception and your gracious hospitality on our recent tour to Egypt. Big thanks to Trip Me special mention Ms. Amira & Mr. Mohamed without your advice and constant attention to detail, we would not have enjoyed ourselves nearly so much. Your rapport with the team was obvious as you were able to provide the services we desired too.
This review is for Amira.Amira was very responsive and great to work with. She planned well although as customers, we must still check through thoroughly and not assume everything is right. The coordination is tip top and everyone on the ground was well informed and on time.
This review is for Amira.Always helpful. Trip planned well. Egyptian people very nice and polite - no need to worry about security. Sonesta Nile Goddess was the only small failure - have sent comments to Amira already but there is no bad reflection on her or Trip Me.
This review is for Amira.Amira was wonderful to work with. She helped me at every turn.
This review is for Amira.Mohamed was the person who planned my 10 day family trip to Egypt. To begin with from reception, to stays at hotels, cruise, transfers from one city to other everything was perfect. I have already recommended 2 of my friends to take his assistance in planning the trip. He also came and met me at Giza hotel to check if there was anything I needed. The person in charge of receiving us at Airport Tarek for international and national transfers was very helpful and super efficient. His initiative and quick responses were commendable. An excellent guy who handled various situations with lot of ease and calm. An ever smiling and jovial person. Full marks to his planning. Our tour guide on the cruise from Aswan to Luxor, Sam was a very knowledgeable person. He took us to all the places of interest and explained everything about the history in great details. He also took care of all our requirements throughout our stay on the cruise. An extremely patient guy with kids as well. My son became friends with him. Our tour guide in Cairo Hend, a lady was extremely knowledgeable and knew everything we wanted to know about the history of Pyramids and other places in Cairo. She also became our trip photographer and mind you she is pretty good at it. An exceptional tour guide overall. She helped us out in shopping as well in the local markets. Every person involved in the execution of trip was very helping and ensured that we didnt face any problem whatsoever. A very well planned and executed trip.
This review is for Amira.Amira was very prompt and punctual and was incredibly helpful in designing my perfect trip to Egypt. I was very happy with her service.
This review is for Amira.The tour was conducted as expected. I got good guides who answered my every question and were knowledgeable. I being a vegetarian, my dietary requirements were also promptly addressed - my sincere thanks to the crew for this. The transport was comfortable as well. I am overall satisfied with the tour experience I derived. I have to point out 2 exceptions though: 1. The Hot air balloon ride at Luxor :- the price of $99 a person is totally disproportionate to the experience value. I was really burning inside the Balloon and here it would have been better if the guide had warned me prior that I will need some protective clothing around my neck/shoulders. Tall people will suffer more. The Balloon was mostly flying over a village. So if you have not experience the hot air balloon earlier you may try here. If you have already tried it elsewhere you may as well stay out of it. In any case it is certainly not worth $99 a person. 2. The camel ride at Pyramids came at $25 per person. This despite my pointing to the tour guide that there were clear displays mentioning foreigner should be charged 100 EGP. I was given some excuses about insurance not available etc. which nobody believes anyway. This is one instance where I felt cheated.
This review is for Amira.What an amazing experience to deal with Amira and her team from Trip.Me. From the moment I accessed their website until my departure from Egypt, they made me feel like VIP. All the people were very professional, friendly, helpful and really went the extra mile to make your holiday an unforgettable experience. I will definitely recommend trip.me to my family and friends.
This review is for Amira.Helpful with organizing the package tour. Had some hiccups with organizing my trip to Sharm El Sheikh
This review is for Amira.FABULOUS is the best word to describe our Egypt trip. It was an amazing adventure and truly a trip of a life time--high praise from a retired military family that has visited forty countries. The people we met were wonderful and the sites breathtaking. Considering our experiences, we whole heartedly recommend a visit to Egypt. First and foremost it is important to say that it is safe to visit Egypt! Prior to our trip our family and friends repeatedly expressed their concerns for our safety. Honestly, we too had a little trepidation about our vacation, but all proved to be unwarranted. Beginning with our flight out of Washington, DC’s Dulles Airport, and extending to every tourist site, all hotel and cruise accommodations, and all activities are extremely well protected. Metal detectors, bomb sniffing dogs, and tourist police were in evidence at each site. They were not intrusive, but reminders that we should feel safe and able to enjoy every aspect of our visit without fear. The arrangements for our trip were great. We started by working with a German company called ‘Trip.Me’ that connected us with a local Egyptian company. They were physically located in Egypt and available to support us 24/7. Having our arrangements prepared by a local company meant a lot, as they were available to us by phone or email every minute of our trip. Our contact was Amira who proposed an initial itinerary, worked to accommodate our pre-travel preferences and modifications, and prepared the final travel plan. Prior to the trip she was very responsive in answering all of our questions and worked to ensure our preferences were met. She did a fantastic job and planned what proved to be a remarkable experience. Thank you, Amira. Our trip had two parts: first, there was a Cairo, Giza, and Alexandria phase, followed by a Nile cruise. During the first part of our travels everything literally started and ended with Ana Annas. He served as our Tour Manager and met us inside the airport with all of our information, helped us obtain our visas and clear immigrations, even rolled around our luggage. Annas provided us a free local phone for the duration of our stay for emergencies, addressed any concerns or questions we had, and took care of us as if we were family. Steve (short for Stefanos), our driver, met us in the parking area and he and Annas escorted us to our hotel and assisted with luggage and check in. Given that it was a very long flight, we met our private guide/Egyptologist the following morning. Ahmed el Sewedy was so knowledgeable and the information he provided was very informative. Ahmed and Steve were amazing! Ahmed is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his country and its sites and artifacts. He spent two days with us, visiting locations in Alexandria and Cairo and bringing their history and artifacts to life. He was a wonderful guide, concerned about our desires and welfare, and very solicitous as the temps were quite warm--over 100 degrees F. We also really enjoyed getting to know something about him personally, talk about Egypt, the United States, and world affairs. Those kinds of intimate person-to-person interactions really enhance the travel experience. Then there was Steve – the best driver in the world (not exaggerating). The traffic in Cairo is maddening, arguably the worst in the world. How he navigated the streets, avoided the constant near misses, and always delivered us to our destinations on-time and unscathed was remarkable. And, he is such a nice guy, too. He was very solicitous of my wife who has some mobility issues and assisted her in and out of the vehicle at every stop. He added to the commentary offered by Ahmed, and made sure we had drink and rest stops, including inviting us to have coffee with him one morning on our way to visit sites. I will always remember the day we had coffee together with Steve. Our cruising on the Nile started in Luxor onboard the Sonesta Saint George and continued to Aswan. The accommodations were excellent and the service provided by the staff was impeccable. Everyone was caring, helpful, and always delivered that little bit extra. The ship was our base from which we toured the temples along the Nile, the Valley of the Kings, and Aswan. During the cruise the guide for our group of six was Egyptologist Ahmed el Prince. He too was a wealth of information, a joy to be with, and also became a friend. Ahmed showed us the sights, provided more information than this brain could ever retain, took great care of us, bought us ice cream when we needed it most, and made the experience a lot of fun. We owe him a great debt of thanks. The trip also offered an unexpected opportunity – to ride on a hot air balloon! This was our first time but will not be our last. What fun and to be up in the sky, to be able to see the sun rise over the Valley of the Kings was truly remarkable. This is not to be missed. The food in Egypt is really good and especially noteworthy are the breads. Also, I should mention our hotel in Cairo was the Kempinski. The hotel was five-star, but the biggest surprise was the Turkish restaurant located in the hotel. Our meal was one that we will never forget. The best Turkish/Mediterranean food we have ever eaten. I should also mention that one should never drink or brush their teeth with tap water. But, that is easy since all our vans had bottled water onboard, as did the hotel and the ship. Please note that tipping is a part of Egyptian life. Everyone gets tipped for everything all the time. Most of the tips are quite nominal, but they are very important to the recipients. I took $200 mostly in $1, 5, 10, and 20s. Next time I’ll take $300 and eliminate the $20s and add more $1s and $5s. Very little money is needed in Egyptian Pounds. I only exchanged $100 into EGP; the majority of our transactions were done by credit card. Our overall experience was fantastic is every way. This trip was so good that we plan a return visit in January 2019. There is so much to see in Egypt that one trip is not enough. We also appreciate the great work that was done by Amira and all her staff. We went to Egypt for the first time, but left with great memories (and 1,200 photos) and new friendships. We cannot wait to go back!
This review is for Amira.Trip was unbelievable, enjoyed every second of it. CAN NOT fault it, in any way.
This review is for Amira.Amira was able to provide us some different options of tour packages and prices. She was also very prompt in responding. Mohamed further spoke to us and helped us when a change in the itinerary occurred after we had paid for the tour. The dahabiya was very relaxing. Probably 2-3 days are more than enough and there should have been at least an extra day in Luxor to see all the sights. There was not enough time there and it was very hectic. We had not even enough time to eat breakfast lunch or enjoy the hotel. Also the day we visited Abu Simbel, we didn't even get a break for lunch so that was a little difficult.
This review is for Amira.Excellent service. All round super taking care of us!
This review is for Amira.Amira was very helpful in providing various options and adjusting as needed until we got a plan that worked. Everything was all set up for us including hotels, flights and staff to greet us at the airport and take us to the hotel.
This review is for Amira.Very efficient and organised trip. Nothing to worry about before, during or after the trip. Everything was perfectly arranged.
This review is for Amira.Everything was well organized and professional. Very easy to communicate prior to the trip. Once arrived at the airport we were greeted even before Customs, the tour leader breezed us through it. The tour itself and the guide were amazing, especially Mahmoud (our guide in Aswan) the best guide we ever had. Everything else from fantastic as well. Highly recommended Amira's services.
This review is for Amira.This traveller just left a 4-star review.
This review is for Amira.Dealing with Amira was very professional, she planned and advised to meet the family requests. Amira was very specific and punctual.
This review is for Amira.Amira and her team were excellent to communicate with. From the beginning all my questions were answered in a timely manner. I was even able to discuss questions via phone. We had some great guides in all the cities we traveled to. Islam and Tarek stand out the most. They were amazing during our Cairo experience and made it more enjoyable. Islam does all the airport pick up and drops and he's very knowledgeable. Everyone at the airport knows him and we were never stopped by anyone. He knew exactly what to do and we felt like VIP customers!
This review is for Amira.We received only the best service from Mohamed and his team from pick up in Cairo Airport to departure at Airport. Our guides were always on time, gave us the most interesting and full history of Ancient Egypt. We had heart warming welcomes everywhere!! We would like to thank Mohammed, Sayed (our Cairo guide) and Ahmed Gomaa (Our Aswan Guide) and the excellent Tour drivers in Cairo you are an outstanding team!! We were very sad to go and miss our new friends dearly.
This review is for Amira.Excellent. She did all she could to help us to plan the trip. We had several changes on the dates and days, but Amira was able to help us to get a good plan to accommodate all the changes.
This review is for Amira.This is our second trip to Egypt and by far the best. Every detail was arranged and everyone was punctual and professional. The facilities were top-notch and 5-star plus. The activities were exciting especially with the well-versed Egyptologists who accompanied us. We felt like VIPs. As Americans we felt especially safe with an armed guard always accompanying our small family (not that we felt we needed one). Came in very useful bargaining with vendors having our own Egyptologist and armed guard. Amira's team was excellent and we saw her team's guided groups everywhere. Their reputation provided us an incredible travel value not seen at just about any other destination. Only advice is to choose carefully what time of year you travel as it can get very hot in Egypt (especially for an Alaskan such as myself). Don't hesitate to use Amira.
This review is for Amira.Our trip to Egypt was made very comfortable thanks to the great organising capability of Amira. Right from setting the itinerary which underwent several changes, to our arrival at Cairo, to all the city airports to the final time when we boarded the flight out to Egypt, she has been with us ensuring our comfort and convenience. I must mention Mohammed Al Tawab our trip consultant and our tour guide Sherif Shaaban who was simply outstanding in his in-depth knowledge and understanding of Pharonic history, Egyptology and history of religious transitions this country has seen. The tour of the Egypt museum with Sherif was very helpful and set the tone for the entire tour as it helped us relate to the history we saw in various cities of Alexandria, Memphis, Luxor and Aswan. Amira's entire team - be it Ehab, Faisal, Karim, Ashraf were all there to take care of our requirements. Shukran to her team.
This review is for Amira.The trip was fantastic, we were met by Fadi from Amira's team at the airport and from then on the various guides gave us a fantastic Egyptian experience. Amira's guides in Cairo and on our Nile cruise were all very knowledgeable, friendly and happy to adjust plans to suit what we wanted to do. It was an incredibly easy 10 days in Egypt as they took care of everything. We would recommend Amira without any hesitation.
This review is for Amira.Our trip to egypt was a blast. The itinerary was planned well by Amira and we loved how she promptly responded to all our queries and doubts through WhatsApp. Truthfully we were somewhat disheartened that we did not meet Amira in Egypt. Thanks Amira! This was our first trip involving a fully guided tour as opposed to winging it like we usually do on most of our trips. We were very impressed at how well coordinated everyone from the agency was. Right from the airport we were greeted by the tour manager Fady and for every leg of the trip we always had a representative from the agency (tour guide, driver) accompanying us. We were rarely left alone and that made us feel very safe. Our tour guides (Professor Nabil, Professor Ishmail and Sayeed ) were superb to say the least. Their highly immersive stories and enthusiasm were the highlight of our trip and we would highly recommend them. They definitely added to the wonderful experience we had in Egypt. Our 5 day trip was a bit tiring as we included Giza, museum, luxor temples, aswan, valley of the king and abu simbel. But here a few pointers from us. 1) we went in May which was the peak of summer. It was hot! water is provided and transportation are AC equipped with WiFi. 2) be prepared to provide tips 3) We did not fancy the Nile river cruise and the GIza light show. Frankly we thought it was overrated. 4) Abu Simbel and valley of the kings is A MUST 5) ALWAYS haggle a tenth of the price and ease up to a fifth of the price for souvenirs. They are not supposed to be that expensive. Try walking away and you will get your price. 6) Do change your dollars to Egyptian pounds at the earliest opportunity. We did find it inconvenient to find a money exchanger during the trip. 7) Please do no touch the painted walls, statues or colored pillars. We found it disheartening that many tourists did so, and in the process ruining the monument for the long run. 8) Lunch (although included) does not cover beverages. we would suggest you to bring bottled water as beverages are expensive at some locations. 9) Stick by Fadys' 5 rules and all will be well. 10) The tour is pricey, but we definitely paid for top notch quality. Enjoy your trip. Thanks again to Amira!
This review is for Amira.This is just to thank you very much not only your always kind and very helpful assistance but specially the attention and care of Amira's team during our last trip to Egypt. We are very grateful to them for taking all kind of measures to ensure we could make our trip according with the schedule, including the request of a special permission and being transported from Marsa Alam to Luxor scored by the police in an special convoy only for us to avoid any problem with the closing of the check points in our way to Luxor. We were not aware about this problem when we did our booking and we were surprised to know that we could have a problem to travel back to Luxor from Marsa Alam the last day of our diving cruise, so we were really worried about the possibility of not being allowed to crossed the Safaga checking point on time despite arriving one hour before the expected time to Marina Porto Galib due to the commitment of all the crew and Captain on board of our boat. Thank you, it was an incredible experience and all was according with the expected schedule and we really appreciate very much indeed all the effort done by all the staff in your company to guarantee our satisfaction. Please thank you in our behalf all the people in our company involved in the arrangements for our trip including the responsible who made the decision to request the special permission for ensuring a safe trip back to Luxor. Thank you very much indeed and Best Regards.
This review is for Amira.I had arrived in Egypt on Sunday April 8th and would like to share my great experience. Ahmed El Sewedy and Mostafa Abo Ziad had been accompanying me as my tour guide and driver, which I considered as a blessing in my trip. Ahmed and Mostafa's performance and caring has been way beyond and above the expectations and any job description. I feel like i am traveling with 2 of my best friends, I understand that it is their job to provide certain level of service but their concern of my well being and comfort has been beyond any expectations. There was an incident where by a mishap I lost some money in the desert!!! Ahmed and Mostafa were more upset than I was and even when I gave up looking for the money they refused to leave and wanted to look more. I believe Ahmed and Mostafa are the team's most valuable capitals and they most certainly should be recognized for their amazing customer service and hospitality. I will appreciate if you make sure that they are informed of my appreciation.
This review is for Amira.I should say whole trip was excellent except departure from Cairo airport, we were totally lost. Agent left us outside airport and left. I will recommend to help travelers to check in. Excellent guide Mr. Mahbub from Luxor to Ashwan by ship: his service was too good.
This review is for Amira.Very very nice services of Amira. I recommend others to avail their services.
This review is for Amira.From the moment my husband and I stepped off the plane in Cairo, we were greeted by a sharp looking man named Anass. Very polite and welcoming, he was our tour leader. We started our day tour the same day of our arrival (as I requested). We met our amazing driver Faisal and tour guide Ebrahim. These two are upbeat fantastic guys who will make you laugh and have a great time!! Ebrahim took many wonderful pictures for our memories and helped us to understand more about his culture. Our day tour consisted of a visit to the pyramids, papyrus shop, lunch, Memphis, Saqqara, and finishing up with a visit to a school of carpets. I definitely would recommend Ebrahim and driver Faisal to anyone who is visiting Cairo! We wish they could have been with us throughout our entire trip! Day 2 we spent flying into Aswan and started a 3 hour journey by road to Abu Simbel. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable but lacked some enthusiasm. While the pace for this trip was a little slow, Amira delivered. After a night in our hotel we started a 3 day cruise along the Nile. We instantly were greeted by tour guide Aouis, who would accompany us throughout the entire trip. Each day our tours were private and arranged very well. Aouis is also a photographer and was able to snap and share our photos by the end of the trip. Amira offered additional tours for travelers of all kinds (hot air balloon, city tours, Nubian village, etc). After our trip, we visited a cafe for some coffee and hookah. Aouis is extremely knowledgeable and a relaxed kind of guy. He made our trip worthwhile. Flying back into Cairo, we were greeted by the same friendly face Anass. He basically made sure everything went smooth throughout our trip. In the morning we started our last tour of Old Cairo, lunch, shopping. Amira's team cares about their clients and you can tell that they love what they do. I enjoyed the organization and their attention to detail. I never did meet Amira but after more information, I learnt that her team has many representatives. All transportation included WiFi, air conditioning, curtains and bottled water. We hope to visit again. Services were great! Thank you!
This review is for Amira.I had many questions before the trip and Amira answered them all in a timely manner.
This review is for Amira.We have just returned from a 12-day tour of Egypt. It included Hurghada, a Nile River Cruise and Cairo. The tour was organized by Amira and it was a great experience. We had personal guides to help us from the moment we landed until we left. Amira was a delight to deal with in developing the tour as we chopped and changed and then everything that we were promised was delivered. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly and willing to adapt as needed to make it easy for us. I would recommend Amira to anyone visiting Egypt.
This review is for Amira.Amira was very responsive to our needs and helped us develop our own itinerary.
This review is for Amira.Amira was excellent. Hassle free travelling in Egypt. The trip was not cheap but you pay for quality and that is what we got. Very friendly helpful staff, their coordination skills were incredible considering we chose side adventures and trips. Can't recommend them highly enough.
This review is for Amira.She did a great job. We had an excellent itinerary and really enjoyed our trip.
This review is for Amira.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.
This review is for Amira.absolutely wonderful !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This review is for Amira.Over all a good trip, quite organised, good services, good hotels, good local guides. But with some minus points: 1.An internal flight that wasn't quite booked properly by the agency and i had a lot of trouble to do the boarding( they did help with that, but it was so and so experience wise) 2. They sent the itinerary quite late with booking the flight from luxor to cairo very late in the day, making a tiring day for me and that was not previously discussed with me. Granted I did get to see everything but I had long hours to wait also, in the last day where i had already checked out of the cruise and had an early hours balloon flight which they knew about it.perhaps more communication on the schedule ahead would be nice. 3. I had a local boat ride that was wind dependent and no wind that day so the ride got kind of ''halved' but not so with the money. 4. They said i would get a local cell phone for my stay or local sim card , none of them happened. I had to buy a local sim card.
This review is for Amira.It was a very great vacation everything was well arranged. Thanks for all Amira team
This review is for Amira.Not only was Amira very helpful, all of the people that I came in contact with the agency went above and beyond. We felt like royalty! They met us as soon as we stepped off of the plane and handled every little detail. Our Egyptologist was amazing! He was so informative and passionate and made you want to learn more. He made the trip such a success.
This review is for Amira.Everything was perfect
This review is for Amira.She was super! So helpful and patient. Quickly every question I had.
This review is for Amira.Amira organise our entire trip. All flights including international flights. This was a good decision. Amira offered additional activities during 9 days in Egypt plus organised with associated tour companies our week in Jordan and our week in Israel. We were never in doubt of any planning and organisation. We spent an additional $1000 USD on extra optional tours after arriving in Cairo and after detailed discussions with Tarek. Every tour was worth every $ spent. We had planned some spare time in the 9 days but we filled the whole 9 days and could have stayed in a hotel for one more night after getting off the boat at Luxor. Our daily guides, Mai, Mohammed, and guide plus organiser, Tarek were fabulous. Hotels selected were the best and the boat on the Nile was very comfortable. Good food everywhere went. Negi was a great driver. The meeting at the airports and all transfers went like clockwork.
This review is for Amira.Amira - she always answered our questions promptly and fully. We would have liked to have a bit more contact AFTER payment was made. Since all of this is done on-line and have never used Trip.me before we never knew if everything was legitimate. We have done full tours like this before to other parts of the world and always got full itineraries, confirmation numbers, exactly what to expect, etc. With trip.me we had to ask. However, everything was booked as promised and every single person Amira sent to help us (guides, drivers, guest relations people, etc) were top notch! I just completed a very favourable review on Trip Advisor. I believe that at least two of the three guides we had may be on contract and not Amira's employees so I wanted to make sure they were given great reviews. They are Sameh Bebawy (Egyptologist), Joseph Selim and Ruby (Mahmoud Boghdady) Our trip was a 10/10 and would recommend to anyone.
This review is for Amira.Great
This review is for Amira.Very good organization. However, not all items delivered as advertise, i.e. no local phone, no wifi in the car, etc..
This review is for Amira.We visited Egypt for 8 days during spring break. The entire trip was customized for us by the local experts. We did Cairo for 2 days, a Nile cruise for 4 days followed by day trips to Abu Simbel and Alexandria. The history of Egypt is incomparable. To the ancient Greeks like Herodotus the Egyptians were already ancient. The Pyramids, the temples, the art, the hieroglyphs are in our memory forever. These magnificent monuments belong not just to Egypt, but the whole world. Watching the entire country glide by, on a Nile cruise is a magical experience. Prepare to be dazzled by Egypt. Thanks to heavy security everywhere, we felt safe. The people at the local agency deserve every one of the 5 stars. We were pampered from the moment we landed in Cairo at 3 am to the time we left. Special thanks to Amira (our online contact who customized our tour). Anas (our tour leader who practically lives at the airport), Usama (Our own Dr Hawas! who gave us an amazing introduction to ancient and modern Egyptian history). Visited March 2017
This review is for Amira.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.
This review is for Amira.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 from then 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 Amira was a pleasure.
This review is for Amira.the service from Amira was very disappointed for us ,we had a lot of bad information from her like passports issues, visas issues,(we had to rebooking twice for this issues that cost me $1,200 extra for Amira's foul) we had to book 02 more extra tours when we get Egypt that was recommend it for the guides ,she was supposed to let's know that we can't visit Egypt with out visiting this places like ALEXADRIA and THE KING'S VALLEY . but the thing that make feel so bad about Amira was that the last day in Egypt when we get back to Cairo nobody was waiting for us in the airport to help us take our flight back to USA. Thanks to God one of the staff was waiting for somebody else in the airport and help us to take our flight to back USA. He told me that when he called Amira to see why this happened she said him that we don't need anybody to help us because is easy to take our flight by self back to home even when the guide in Luxor told us that some of the staff will be waiting for us in Cairo airport to help us to take our flight. My point is that she make us feel like because we already finished our tour we are not anymore important to them . I think she need to be more polite and show courtesy with the clients from the very first day 'till they leave her country. THE GUIDES ARE VERY NICE PERSONS VERY HELPFUL, POLITE AND PROFESSIONAL. THEY MAKE OUR TRIP VERY NICE. THANK YOU GUYS!!
thank you for your message. I am sorry to read that you are disapointed, because we tried to help you with every issue you had.Below my feedback on your comments:
1). The visa: We have hundreds of U.S citizens coming to Egypt every day, and I reassure you that they do not need to take the visa before arrival, they take it at Cairo Airport on spot as our tour leader is helping to get it smoothly. This is definite. Edgar from tripme has also helped you to find the proper information through this link: https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/country/egypt.html in which says: U.S. citizens can obtain a renewable single-entry 30-day tourist visa on arrival at Egyptian airports for a 25 USD fee. A multiple entry visa is also obtainable for 35 USD. After you didn't arrive, me and my colleague Mohamed have tried to do our best to let you not have more extra expenses than needed.
2). Alexandria trip: in the first offer there was not enough time to add Alexandria, so I did not include it, while I have mentioned that it is an optional tour once you extended the trip duration and there was a space to do it. He confirmed it with me and his final confirmation was already including the trip to Alexandria. - Valley of the Kings was included in my itinerary from day 1.
3). Connection flight last day: There was not a transfer provided as your departure was from the same terminal as domestic's. Our tour leader was just there when the traveller called him and he helped arranging the bags and so on.
I am happy to read that our guided made your tour very nice.
This review is for Amira.Amira was, in a word, wonderful. She responded to our questions quickly, accurately and with charm! What more could anyone want?
This review is for Amira.Excellent service provided by Amira
This review is for Amira.Services of Amira is excellent and we are extremely satisfied with their service. Any body plan to visit Egypt, I strongly recommend to plan the trip through Amira
This review is for Amira.Very flexible and efficient
This review is for Amira.Amira was extremely helpful of my desires and needs
This review is for Amira.The reservation process was easy, flexible, and our contact Mohamed was patient, professional,very helpful, and kept us informed at every step. There were no surprises except for how wonderful the arrangements and trip turned out to be. The amount of deposit and balance due were exactly as expected and there were no hidden charges. This was definitely the best booking process that I have ever experienced. In my opinion, trip.me and Amira's agency are very trustworthy and reliable.
This review is for Amira.Amira helped us book our March 2017 visit to Egypt. She was very quick to respond to email questions, and the first five days of our visit were excellent - loved every minute. There was a glitch on the last day, but we're confident this was a 'one-of' type of thing. Would use this service again!
This review is for Amira.When my friend and I first chose Egypt everyone was concerned. Why Egypt.. out of all countries to vacation in for a week. Especially being two females alone.. Egypt was definitely concern. After a lot of research online we came across Trip.me who is linked to Local Agencies and decided to look further into this agency. We first connected with Amira from Trip.me and she was able to answer all our questions and concerns in regards to Egypt safety and if 2 females travelling alone would be a smart idea. Through Amira we were connected to Mohammad AlTawab, the operational manager. Mr. Tawab made the impossible possible! He spent hours on hours customizing our 1 week trip and was able to get everything we wanted. If it wasn't for him Egypt would not have been possible. I can genuinely say that Mohammad AlTawab is extremely hard-working, passionate and really cares for his clients. He really made our experience in Egypt a 10/10. Thank you Tawab! Over all Egypt was a perfect amazing and magical vacation. Trip.me provided us with everything to air transportation, food, accommodation, airport pick-up/drop-off. The guides that were arranged to tour us for the week were incredibly amazing and great guides. It felt like we were all family the way everyone was taking care of us. As for the safety concerns that many tourists have, we can assure you that we felt safe to walk around by ourselves day or night. At no point during our trip did we feel threatened, scared or worried. Plus, you will guide with you majority of the time. We recommend visiting Egypt to everyone - it has everything - culture, history, nightlife, and AMAZING koshari (try abu tarek and tahrir in Cairo) etc. There are a lot of tour agencies you can chose from in Egypt but Trip.me exceeded our expectations and went above and beyond to make sure we had an amazing time. We received fantastic service the entire trip especially because of Mohammad AlTawab. He is truly amazing. We got to see so much of Egypt for the amount we paid! We look forward to visiting Egypt again !! FIVE STAR!!
This review is for Amira.I have just returned from a fantastic trip of Egypt organised by Amira of Trip Me. Everything was well planned and went off without a hitch. Egypt is a great country and we enjoyed our time there. Thank you very much for all your efforts.
This review is for Amira.I booked with Amira who customized my trip to include a wonderful break in Hurgada on the Red Sea and a few additional days in Cairo. From the moment I arrived I was escorted on tours, to hotels, to airports, to ships= everything was handled so professionally. The guides at the local agency were exceptional, and the drivers very good. Deen in Cairo, Meena M in Aswan, Mohammed Emmam in Luxor, Ali in Hurghada, and Asna coordinating it all. I have travelled independently to many countries, buy Egypt is one country where local guides are invaluable. Their wealth of knowledge (all were Egyptologists), their love of history and pride of Egypt was very evident. Cairo was amazing-the Egyptian museum, Giza, Islamic Cairo, Coptic Cairo, and the Nile promenade. Abu Simbel is not be missed- a long drive from the Aswan airport, but so worth it. The cruise from Aswan to Luxor on board the Sonnesta St George with visits to Philae, Kom Ombo, Edfu, Karnak & Luxor Temples and the Valley of the Kings. Hurgada is a great resort on the Red Sea, a 4 hour drive from Luxor. The Hilton resort has a sandy beach, huge pools with a kid's area and excellent restaurants. I found Egypt to be a safe country to visit, good security at the airports and hotels. No problems walking around Cairo even after dark. If I return to Egypt, I would definitely use Trip Me with this local agency.
This review is for Amira.Amira was so patient and prompt with us. Prayed for us too that we get our visa on time. Thanks Amira All guides were very professional and friendly... very helpful.. informative and genuine
This review is for Amira.The agency had the most informative tour guides and I have already recommended them to friends.
This review is for Amira.Good service. The contact before the trip not so good with all hotel bookings and lack of communication in changing hotels and incorrect booking of meals. Amira added an excursion and hotel upgrade to make up for incorrect hotel booking.
This review is for Amira.Amira was very responsive and created an itinerary that was just what we wanted. The trip was everything we hoped it would be and everyone associated with the local agency, from the first contact at the airport, every tour and transport to the final boarding going home were friendly professional and responsive to our every request.
This review is for Amira.The services was great.. We didnt find any difficulty before & during our stay in Egypt. Indeed it was really, best experience to see and know the ancient history..A big thanks to Ms. Amira, Mr. Anas and Ms.Passant they were really excellent and too accomodating. Highly recommended the agency..Thumbs up..
This review is for Amira.The service provided by Amira is good. We feel safe travelling arround with our guides as they have briefed us as what to and not. The optionals suggested by the guides may be a bit more expensive but it may also depends on the type of service provided. Amira is quick to response to my email.
This review is for Amira.It was one of the best trips I have been on. Everything was so amazing I was not once let down or disappointed. The whole trip was organised really well and the tour guides were amazing. They made every thing fun and easy. Would definitely recommend this trip and trip.me to others in the future who plan on going to Egypt. It was really good and easy to use. Amira who organised everything and my itinerary was really good and catered to all our needs.
This review is for Amira.Very good operator. Took good care of us all through the trip. Tour guides are very knowledgeable and helpful. Good recommendations and tips from them. Cruise was good and food was excellent.
This review is for Amira.The trip as a whole went smoothly and thanks to the competence and kindness of our two guides (Fadi in Cairo and Ahmed during the cruise). Nevertheless we had the surprise not to embark on the boat that was planned and that without any explanation. This change resulted in a modification of the program and we spent two nights at dock in Aswan stuck between two other boats. Besides, the schedule of our flight to Abu Simbel was delayed without, again, we were informed. I would have appreciated a contact with Amira who would have justified me these changes. On the other hand, the evening, out of package, "sound and lights at the Sphinx and dinner" was particularly high (40 € per person) while entrance to sound and lights cost about 150 pounds and the dinner was really poor In a decoration and a dull atmosphere.
This review is for Amira.There were gaps in planning. Availability of drinking water and wi fi are two major concerns. Everyone is after us to give them good reviews without providing service. Non availability of wi fi MUST be highlighted. The people around us are more keen to sell new site visits instead of making us enjoy the sites that are part of the package. In Aswan, it is a pity that the most important temple was not included and considerable time spent on dam - these could be easily interchanged. We did not go to Egypt to see dams - howsoever big or significant to local population it might be. On the cruise, my wife got food poisoning resulting in nausea and vomiting thereby ruining our last two days of the trip which included a dinner cruise on Nile in Cairo (my wife spent the dinner cruise in the toilet vomiting and didn't eat a morsel of food). These aspects as brought out above need to be highlighted - wifi would be available only after paying 40 USD (my whole year is subscription is less than that). You are going to be charged for drinking water at a rip off price - again my yearly water bill is less than the amount being charged for drinking water.
This review is for Amira.This traveller just left a 5-star review.
This review is for Amira.The itinerary are plan very well. Selected optional package are added on with their professional advise. Amacro 1 cruise staff are very friendly and services are excellent. Amira have provided business class to Luxor and upgrade us stay Fairmont for one night. Very appreciate thank you very much.
This review is for Amira.Amira is amazing with all the fabulous buildings clad in limestone. the staff were amazing we were met from our flight and all visas etc worked out with the agents assistance. driver was great and the Marriot was a wonderful retreat for our 3 days there.
This review is for Amira.Amire services were very good to excellent. Starting from booking to the end of the trip at Cairo airport. Despite of a few issues, which are inevitable in any trip Amira was very helpful and did try his best to accommodate various requests from us. More importantly she did his best to ensure that everything is going as smoothly as possible. Well done.
This review is for Amira.Egypt is amazing, everyone should see it once in their lifetime! Amira did a Very Good Job in keeping the itinerary moving as well!
This review is for Amira.Great trip, we booked the deluxe package. It was well worth it. Everything went smoothly. We booked the Royal Sonesta for our cruise---apparently the best five star boat cruising the Nile. With the exception of the final breakfast (which made everyone in our party of eight adults sick for 24 hour) even that was a good experience. Don't miss the balloons at Luxor. It was terrific.
This review is for Amira.She was able to custom design my itinerary in 15 minutes. Great service.
This review is for Amira.Have you heard about people who takes the Extra Miles? Truly, Amira went the extra mills to make my family vacation during Christmas break an outstanding and remarkable one that we will never going to forget until the end of time, Thank you Amira! Our trip was a Nile Cruise to Luxor and Aswan to explore and discover Egypt History. Our tour leader Mr. Abdel Hamid was a very knowledgeable in Ancient-Egyptian History and I admire his dedication to us during the entire trip, Thank you Abdel Hamid! It was excellent, thanks for all the team.
This review is for Amira.Egypt: I have done the great trip of my life from Dec 23 to 31 , 2016. I thankful of Amira's team and Mr Ahmed , my tour guide in Cairo & Alexandria and Arzab who guided me in Nile cruise and cover places like Luxor, Edfu, Karnak, valley of King , Aswan & Abu Simbel. They both were very knowledgeable about local history and places. Please note do not prefer to visit Egypt without Guide or else due to language difference, you might able to see all places but no use. In eight complete days , I have done the entire Egypt ( all main key points) from Alexandria to Abu Simbel ( last point in Egypt) . The guides will take you all major important points within time frame so you will enjoy the most in least time. The Agency is very old and well connected within Egypt so well , that you will see their professionalism on the road arranging local tours during your visit. Please also note before my visit , I was learned from the internet that visit in Egypt is the risky country for foreign nationals, but it was completely wrong . I don't see any kind of threat in my visit. In fact I feel local people is most friendly , honest & hard working. I suggest to all travelers to visit Egypt without any fear and must go before you choose any other place in the world since the only country has great treasures of ancient world. Thanks
This review is for Amira.Amira was very helpful nothing was a problem and all my needs were taken care of straight away she was very pleasant to deal with and being a Qantas employee I would be pleased to work with Amira again. We had the perfect trip for the money out lay we made thank you
This review is for Amira.We were taken care of from the point of arrival to departure.The coordination between staff members was excellent. They were courteous and punctual.We were care free during the entire trip. It was very special indeed. Seeing the oldest monuments of human civilization and the mummies and statues on such an extensive scale was indeed awesome. The stay in cruise was also comfortable.We felt that our return trip could have been more convenient if we had flown directly to Cairo Airport on 26th evening and taken the flight to Delhi.The long drive to Hotel from Airport either way could have been avoided as well as the overnight stay.We did not have much time for shopping.We missed buying clothes of famed Egyptian fabric.We were left with considerable balance of Egyptian pounds , which we could not convert at Cairo Airport as no bank branches were there and they were not acceptable at exchange counters in Kuwait or Delhi,
This review is for Amira.good organizing and the staff were so energetic and friendly.
This review is for Amira.We love Egypt! This is not our first trip, but this time we booked through Trp.me and we can't rave enough about the quality of the service, professionalism and interest in our needs. There is nothing better than to travel with a local agent. I would highly recommend using trip.me. Customized trip was perfect and the price too. Experienced guides traveled with us, three awesome guides. One in the Nile cruise, one in Lake Nasser and one in Giza and Alexandria. Drivers, cars and hotels were great. People in Egypt were wonderful. We never felt harassed or uncomfortable. One night we left the boat to fix my phone. People in the street took us to a store, lets use their phone, and made our night, a memorable one. Don't let the news put fear in you. Travel! Awesome trip. We saw things that we wouldn't if we had gone with the usual travel agents.
This review is for Amira.Our 9-day Egypt tour was excellently planned and executed by the agent. We were taken care of every step of the way. The private guides were personable, very knowledgeable and accommodated our needs and wishes. The cars were clean, comfortable and well driven (notwithstanding the craziness of Cairo traffic). The only minor hick-up was their failure to book connecting rooms for two of the three hotels we stayed in. But even then, the agent responded quickly to rectify the situation. Overall we were very impressed.
This review is for Amira.Had an excellent trip . Amira and her team had created a meticulous plan and executed it to the perfection. We enjoyed every minute of the trip.
This review is for Amira.Amira provided excellent service re tour planning and co-ordination prior to my departure. However i did not feel that the agency dealt fairly and honestly with me, because I felt on my particular trip the cancellation of my Lake Nasser trip caused a great amount of consternation and dissatisfaction with the alternate arrangements which were made. There was no consultation with me re these arrangements and costs associated with them.... the tour operator took it upon themselves to make those decisions. I did and do not think that these alternative arrangements were of equal value to the amount of money which was originally paid... I did accept a payment of a partial refund of $200 ..... although this i believe was inadequate.
This review is for Amira.we were directed to a local agency - had a good experience.
This review is for Amira.Amira was extremely helpful, with all my inquiries. I overpaid with the difference in USA and au $. She had no trouble to reimburse me. We had a wonderful experience. There was always someone there to meet and greet. Didn't know we were having our own private tour, thought we would join up with others.
This review is for Amira.Cairo Luxor Aswan and Nile cruise all worthwhile. Excellent guides and I felt very safe. Egypt is full of lovely people.
This review is for Amira.Amira was very prompt on replying and answering all questions
This review is for Amira.Our trip was amazing and more than we could have hoped for! The booking was super easy and everything was taken care of for us once we arrived in Cairo. The guides were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The food on the cruise was excellent and had great variety. The only thing I would recommend is including bottled water at all meals. It was a little odd to have to buy water at lunch and dinner. We would've gladly paid a little extra in order to have a bottle waiting for us at every meal.
This review is for Amira.We had a wonderful trip. The moment we got there, our travel agent, Ehab, was waiting at the airport for us. He made the transfer to the hotel very smooth. Our tour guide in Cairo/Giza, Medhat, made the visits to the pyramids, bazaar, and museum very interesting. He also threw in a couple of extra stops at some historic churches and a bazaar, which was very nice. When we got to the museum, he asked us whether we wanted the short, medium or long tour. My son only wanted the short tour, so that's what we asked for, though I could have stayed longer. But I wanted my son to enjoy the trip as well. Then, we flew to Sharm el Sheikh. Our travel agent, Ahmed, met us at the airport, and made the transfer to the hotel again very smooth. The next day, our tour guide, Fathy took me to the scuba dive shop, and helped me navigate the crowds, and in the evening, accompanied us to a show with belly dancers, snake charmers, acrobats and other dancers. The scuba diving was wonderful. The captain, Moiz, personally guided me around the reef. The reef was as beautiful as any I've seen in Bonaire. I had asked for 2 days of 2 morning dives each. What I got was: 1. one full day of diving, which consisted of 3 dives, of which I chose to do only 2 dives, and 2. one full day of snorkeling by boat. I was not disappointed in the snorkeling, as the reef came all the way to the surface and had plenty of sea life, including schools of small fish. The first snorkeling reef, the boat anchored right on top of the reef, so as soon as you jumped in, you saw reef. The second snorkeling reef, the boat anchored about 50 yards from the reef (I'm not good at judging distance, especially under water). There was a slight current, but at 50 years of age, and not as strong as I used to be, I was able to swim the distance with no problem. The other snorkelers on the boat must have been novice swimmers, b/c the tour guide, Bakr Mohamed, had to explain to them how to use their mask and snorkel. He also towed some of them on a life preserver, around the reef, pointing out the various sea creatures. He wanted us to stay close together, which made for some fins in the face, but no problem. The snorkeling trip had about 5 families, and the boat could have easily held 10-12 families. It was a beautiful, all wooden boat. The families on the snorkeling trip were Egyptian, whereas for the scuba diving trip, they put me on a boat with mostly foreign tourists, to give it a more private feel. I wouldn't have minded going with the other Egyptians. I was in Egypt about 19 years ago, and at that time, in Sharm el Sheikh, there would have been hundreds of boats in the sea. This time, there were tens of boats. Which made it easier to find your boat when you surfaced. It also made the tours in Cairo and Luxor much less crowded, which was nice. I did come down with a stomach virus while in Egypt, but fortunately, the resort in Sharm el Sheikh had a doctor. He spoke with a thick accent, but we managed. He seemed to be familiar with all the medications I'm on, and gave me a thorough exam. He asked if I'd be willing to take a shot, for rapid relief of my symptoms. He used a term for back side that I'm not familiar with. I thought he said "intravenously". So, I stuck out my arm. Then, he motioned with his arms, to indicate my rear side. I agreed, and the diarrhea and vomiting were cleared up within a day. He also gave me some anti-viral medication. One night, in Sharm el Sheikh, while at dinner, I ordered a non-alcoholic drink from their drink menu, called a "Cinderella". After bringing me the Cinderella, the waiter brought me a glass of orange juice, apologizing that the drink did not taste like a Cinderella. I told him I liked it and wanted another. I do not know what a Cinderella is supposed to taste like. Then it was on to Luxor. Again, our travel agent, Ahmed, met us at the airport and made the transfer to the hotel very smooth. He was not allowed to enter the airport to greet us, like Ehab had done in Cairo. So, when our luggage didn't arrive from Sharm el Sheikh, we had to discuss things with the baggage clerk at the airport, which we managed to do successfully, and we got our bags that night. Ahmed also offered us an optional horse and buggy ride around Luxor, and an optional tour of a temple that we agreed to. Our tour guide, Mohammed, made our tours of the temples and tombs in Luxor very memorable. I took 2 credit cards, one with a chip and one without. Sometimes the cards would not work, and I'm sure it was a problem with their machines, and not my cards, because the credit cards worked in Egypt both before and after the places where they failed. So it was good I carried cash as well. We also ran into problems with 2 ATM machines not working. But we found some that did, so it was not a catastrophe. All in all, I'd say, it was a wonderful trip. My 18 year old son enjoyed it as well. I'd recommend Amira.

This review is for Amira.Amira was very detailed and professional from the beginning to the end. She was detailed on my steps of my trip made sure I was well cared for and accompanied by the staff the whole time. I would like to give my special thanks to every one who I worked with especially Amr Hassan, Mahmoud Hussein, Ahmed Gamal and Hassan Saadi Ahmed Badawi. they all were very professional and helpful. There is no room for improvement this was the best experience I ever had.
This review is for Amira.My wife and I are constant travelers and we always look for reliable tour operators on our travel. I’ve been trying for 4 years to visit Egypt and there was always some fallback. My wife and I decided that 2016 is the year and we decided that we are going to make it to Egypt. Our friend convince us please don’t go because of all the predicaments and dilemmas in Egypt, but we stood by our guns. And what can I say; we had an excellent trip with no aggravation. “If you have doubts, but them aside and visit Egypt, it’s the place to see and not forgetting the Egyptian people, very friendly” We picked the month (April, 2016) and decided to write to dozens of tour operators in Egypt. Amazing I got received replies from all the tour operators, and not knowing the competition, I was amazed at the deals that I received. We couldn’t decide which tour company to select. After one month of reviewing all the trip information and checking what would meet our budget, I still couldn’t decide. I even checked trip advisory for reviews and each tour companies had amazing reviews. What made me pick this local agency was a call from Mohamed which I never expected. I was not sure who Mohamed was since I thought I was dealing with Amira from the local agency. He was honest and he stated to me that you must have received multiple price quotes and asked me what I was looking for, and how he could plan my trip and meet my budget. After receiving the trip information and reviewing the itinerary with the price quote, I waited for a couple of days. In the mean time I was getting emails from dozens of tour operator providing great deals. Mohamed wrote to me and stated that I am giving you the best deal and you will never regret. After a couple of days I got another call from Mohamed, and after reviewing the Itinerary and the price quote, at that point, I decided I am going with Mohamed. It’s the call from Mohamed that convinced me, which no other tour operators even make an attempt to call. He also was flex able with payments which made it very easy for us. This is an outstanding organization that met us at every point, provided us with beyond what we expected, and made our experience totally care free. From the time we arrived to departure we were take care by the tour managers (Mohamed Sabry, Khaled Hong & Mohamed Essam). All booking, hotel, tours, Nile cruise and pickup times were to perfection. And not forgetting the tour guides & drivers. Our tour guide in Cairo- Emad Selim and at Aswan & Luxor – Azab were professional and very knowledgeable. Never on all my trips, have I come across tour guides (Emad & Azab) with the immense knowledge in English and professional skill, that we enjoyed every minute of their time. They took very good care of us on our tour, and were very flexible to accommodate changes. Never have I seen a very experience a calm driver like Nagi (Rico). We almost thought we would be in an accident a dozen times in Cairo. Overall we had a fantastic trip.
This review is for Amira.Firstly we were a group of 6 people of which 3 of us won a Award Trip from our company for performance excellence. We opened the world map to see where we can go and Egypt catch our eyes. We did an enquiry online and within minutes we received reply back and the next moment Mohamed phoned me to give advice and his support. Catch by surprise by this call from another country, we were hooked. No other websites seemed interesting after this. So we continued planning the trip and all the day-tours with Mohamed. I could not have done this without him. Thank you Mohamed. On our arrival we were greeted by the tour leader, Amro Hassan and he helped us through thousands of travellers to get through passport control and to safety where Steve was waiting for us to be our driver for the week. Amro accompanied us to the Hotel and did not leave until we were booked in and settled. So much gentlemen and very much professional. Many thanks Amro. The following 3 days we had great fun with all our day-trips and we had a very clever tour guide which told us so much about Egypt and all the history that we have to go back one day to follow up on this tour. Nazareen was the best tour guide we could have asked for. All the stories and places she showed us was almost too much to take in, but so fascinating. Nazareen, thanks again for handling our tour and take us where ever we had to be or want to go. But most of all the fun, was our driver, Steve. There is no other driver in the world like him. To drive like this in THAT traffic without accidents was mind blowing. We made turns to sit in front to watch the traffic head on ! And every time we reached our destination safe.. That was marvellous Steve. 10 out of 10 ! To talk about the service and assistance of everyone was exceptional. Amro gave me a cell phone to keep with me so he can contact us, or we can contact them if we need them. This was a special touch to customer service. We felt save all the time, even if we were alone in another country. And every day, after every day-tour, Amro phoned to check if we had fun and enjoyed the day. Sometimes after 22:00 he phoned again after late night Nile cruise trip. In our company customer service is very important, but we have learned how good aftersales service can be ! Amro you were a great inspirer in this regard and I have to thank your wife to allow you to call us that late at night.. Give her hug from all of us.. The last day Amro went out of his way to change our times for the Quad bike tour just for us to see the sun set in the dunes. That was the highlight and great ending of our tour. We will remember this for ever. Taking us back to the airport and complete our forms for us and help us up to passport control without trouble, Amro exceeded our expectations. This touched our hearts and it was hard to say goodbye. Without Amro we might not have entered Egypt or leave Egypt so smoothly. This is the kind of service that will make us go back again, and the reason why I would recommend them to every one out there, thinking about Egypt tour and are afraid how to start the planning. Egypt is a must-do for everyone at least once in their life time.... and I would do it twice !
This review is for Amira.Amira is an amazing professional travel consultant. Gave me different options for Egypt tour and very prompt in responding to my queries and concerns. And she took take care of hotel, flight and cruise bookings without any issue.
This review is for Amira.I contacted Amira (Mohammed) for advice in setting up a 3-night Nile Cruise/3-night Cairo visit. He made recommendations that turned out to be a wonderful time for my husband and me in Egypt! He also surprised us by upgrading our cruise accommodations to a deluxe suite (we were celebrating our anniversary and my husbands birthday!) I sent the feedback in #6 to TripAdvisor, as well, because I would LOVE to let people know about what a great mini-vacation we had in Egypt earlier this month. Thank you SO much for all you did to make this happen!! If you are having doubts about going to Egypt, you can put those doubts aside and book with Amira and Mohamed. This is an outstanding organization who met us at every point, provided us with beyond what we expected, and made our experience totally care free. Our guides were the BEST!! Eid Moawed (for the Nile ground tours Aswan Dam, Valley of the Kings, Nubian Village, Karnak, and more) and Emad Seleem (for the Cairo ground tours, Pyramids, Museum, religious sites, Sphinx, and more) were experienced Egyptologists who kept us fascinated with their knowledge and love of what they were doing! We were grateful for them and for our driver (they called him "Uncle Mike") who knew how to get around snarled traffic! Great job! :) :) Thank you! We are telling everyone about our wonderful adventure...even told the stewardesses on our flight home "Look into it! You WON'T be disappointed!" Also, the cruise accommodations were SO nice with lovely table hosts, chefs, cleaning crews, and directors. Wonderful food. Very nice room with a generous window view, and the boat was so quiet we weren't sure we were even moving :) The Meridien Hotel, for the land portion of the trip, had everything...beautiful swimming pools, wonderful food, an assortment of restaurants inside and even chefs cooking on the pool deck...really GREAT. Very professional service from the minute we arrived in Cairo to when we said bye bye.
This review is for Amira.April 5 to 9, 2016, Ash and I traveled with Amira 's company in Egypt Aswan to Luxor on Sonseta Cruis Ship with Hassan Elshazly as our outstanding guide. He was very knowledgeable about all of our stops and all our questions very well. He anticipates all our needs to make our trip a great pleasure. We appreciate his cooperation and sense of humor. We are very satisfied with Amira and look forward to another tour someday. All personnel and arrangements were excellent including our Cairo Guides. Thank you, Sincerly, John & Ash
This review is for Amira.Excellent service from minute one. Very friendly staff. They go out of their way to make the holiday makers have a great time. All the bookings and pickup times were perfect. Having access to wifi all the time was a great plus
This review is for Amira.Amira actually turned out to be, in my case, a guy named Mohammad. I think Amira does actually exist, but she is one of many staff for a large Egyptian tour company. Anyway, Mohammad was responsive to the personalization of the tour, everything went great once we arrived to Egypt, and we would definitely book again with this tour company, and definitely use Trip.Me again too.
This review is for Amira.We had a wonderful trip to Egypt. We were met right when we got off the plane by our guide. He helped up with our visa, luggage, We felt very safe traveling in Egypt and our guide was there to help. Our driver Mr. Mac was a wonderful and courteous and a good driver. They gave us a cell phone to keep in touch with them should we needed anything, like booking extra sight seeing tours. We booked a hot air ballon ride in Luxor which was awesome. We are two older women traveling on our own. We felt very save and would do it again. We spent a week at the Isis island resort in Aswan. It is on and Island overlooking the Nile on both sides. This place was very relaxing and meals, manager and staff were wonderful. I will miss this place the most. We had a fantastic cruise from Luxor to Aswan on the Sonesta St. George. Fabulous ship with wonderful meals and cabins.
This review is for Amira.Tour guides were friendly, very hospitable, knowledgable and lively.
This review is for Amira.Where do I begin! First Egypt has been a destination that I have dreamed of visiting since I was a child. Rich in history, culture and inspiration it is a must see for all. Amira was wonderful from the beginning! From prompt communication, kindness and overall willingness to assist in making my vacation memorable. She assisted with all questions, concerns and even made suggestions to accommodate the time frame I needed. This agency is an exceptional company who I would highly recommend to all. There service and hospitality go hand-in-hand with the people of Egypt! Special Thanks to my tour guides and driver who made my trip extra special Ahmed el Prince, Mohammed Sabry, Ahmed Farahat, Mohammed Essam and Waiel.... I will be using the local agency again for further travel in and around the neighboring region..

This review is for Amira.Actually my tour coordinator was Fady, and his aid in tailoring my itinerary was invaluable. He made the entire experience effortless, even a full refund because the wind canceled a Baloon ride. Twelve days never even late once, the driver nor the guide. Good English, very polite, friendly, and accommodating. Even chilled water every time we stopped. I truly cannot imagine a tour experience that could equal Fady and Amira.

We were able to arrange and book the trip we requested without any hassle and it was executed very well such that little planning was required on our part.
