"My husband and I visited Egypt in July 2016. It really was a trip of a lifetime, and the hospitality from Lady Egypt Tours was great and we always felt very safe and taken care of. We did the 7 night tour of Egypt - 2 nights in Cairo, 2 nights on a sleeper train and 3 nights on a Nile Cruise which went from Aswan to Luxor. Lady Egypt was always very reliable - we had very good tour guides in Cairo (Ahmed) as well as in Luxor and Aswan (Muḥammad) who taught us a lot about Egyptian history and always went the extra step to make sure we got the most out of our experience. Our drivers were always very safe and the food at the hotel as well as on the Nile Cruise was very good. Our host Islam in Cairo also took very good care of us during our time in Cairo. 

Overall, it was an amazing trip - there are so many beautiful things to see in Egypt like Valley of the Kings, many different temples and of course the Pyramids and we would recommend the trip - safety was not a concern for us with Lady Egypt as we always had someone with us to keep us safe. For the 7 nights accommodation, transportation, a local tour guide and entrance to all of the sites, this was an extremely good deal."
