"What a trip of a lifetime to travel to Egypt! My friend and I had a fantastic experience traveling and sightseeing around Egypt because of Lady Egypt Tours! Lady Egypt Tours took care of us immediately from the moment we arrived in Cairo Airport till the moment we left from Cairo Airport 10 days later. 

Tour Manager Islam Ahmed Gaber greeted and welcomed us to Egypt. He sat down with us and went over our itinerary step by step. The next morning he greeted us along with our guide Hussein Ahmed and driver Ahmet. Hussein is extremely personable and a wealth of knowledge of ancient Egyptian history. We were escorted and driven to every site. Our pictures our amazing. 

We next went to Aswan from Cairo via sleeper train. Unless you can sleep on a roller coaster, I don't recommend it. We didn't sleep at all during the night so it made for a long day. In Aswan, we were greeted by our guide Hussam Sabry. Hussam is kind and knowledgeable on everything about Aswan and Luxor. It was great to hear the small town perspective. 

We actually upgraded to fly back to Cairo from Luxor instead of the train which was great. Islam took care of all the details for our flights so we didn't worry at all.

Most importantly from this trip, we felt absolutely SAFE. I had several worried people back at home thinking about this trip. I can assure everyone that we felt welcome everywhere we went. Our guides and drivers took care of us the ENTIRE time. 

I highly recommend Lady Egypt Tours because they are organized, knowledgeable, personable, adaptable and professional. They provided EXCELLENT service! Thank you to the entire staff for exceeding our expectations during our first trip to Egypt! It was a fantastic, inspiring and fun trip of a lifetime. Looking forward to returning back there in the future. :-) "
