"I did not know what to expect when I first I arrived, but I was surprised from the time I arrived at the airport in Cairo.I was traveling by myself.
When I first arrived I was pleasantly surprised by Islam who greeted me at the airport with a dozen roses. He made my day with that gesture. He escorted me all the way through immigration and waited with me until I got my bags. He made me feel so comfortable from the beginning. Once we got my bags he escorted me all the way to my hotel. He gave me a brief brake down of what I would be seeing in the next couple of days and what to expect. The driver was great too. Very friendly and a great driver. 

Once my tour started Hamdy was my guide in Cairo and Alexandria. He was absolutely amazing. He took the time to explain everything I needed to know. I learned a lot of things that I thought I knew. He was always very friendly and knew everything about the history of Egypt. 

After Cairo I went to Luxor and I caught up with my next travel guide who was Aboudy and let me tell you that this man is absolutely the best tour guide ever. Any issues that I had I would bring it to his attention and he would take care of it. He loves his country and the history behind it. He goes into depth when he talks about the history. He will make sure that you are completely happy and satisfied with the whole trip. He goes above and beyond to make sure you are enjoying your trip.

I can say that Lady Egypt is one of the best toure agencies that I have EVER dealt with. They make sure that the customers are safe and comfortable at all times. The take safety very serious. I never felt unsafe. I was ALWAYS in good hands. I never felt threaten or scared the whole time I was in Egypt. I would recommend Lady Egypt to anybody that would like to go to Egypt and it's history. You have nothing to fear with Lady Egypt. You will always have somebody with you from the start to finish of your trip"
