"Where do I begin? Me and my girlfriend were in the process of getting quotes from several travel agencies to travel Egypt through and we heard so many passionate testimonials about Lady Egypt that we eventually booked with them. We did a 7 day excursion. And we're so glad we did! From the moment we walked into the terminal of Cairo and were received by Khalifa, he assured us to relax and start enjoying the vacation cause everything else was to be taken care of. It may have been lucky but my girlfriend and I were the entirety of the tour group and we had an extremely knowledgeable tour guide at all times while out and about. Fayed and Aboudy could not be more gracious, patient and comforting with their thorough and enthusiastic manner.
I want to stress that not ONCE did ever feel anything even remotely close to danger or fear. On the contrary, it felt extra special and intimate to interact with the ancient temples with less tourists around. The Egyptian pound was really weak (19 LE to $1 USD) so things were more affordable. The hotel rooms in Giza, Luxor and the room on the Nile river were all way more luxurious than i ever imagined. The bathrooms had bidets!!! On early days of flying to Aswan or Luxor, we were always escorted at all times, even at odd hours like 4 am, it truly felt like we were VIP. They even made sure we went to the best local food places as well as authentic local establishments (e.g. flower perfumery, papyrus museum, fine stone shop)
Other companies were quoting us for so much more and it didn't even include many meals or admission to the numerous temples and tombs we were visiting. The price point from this company, as well as itinerary was by far the best bang for buck value.
I could not recommend Lady Egypt more for a true, hassle free, safe Egypt experience. They're extremely professional, comforting and willing to tailor a trip exactly to your liking. Go visit Egypt!!!"
