Review of: 8-Night Cairo, Aswan and Luxor Explorer Tour from Cairo
From the planning with Nahla, to when we were handed our boarding passes when we left Cairo to head home, we were treated as If we were the only customer they had. It is difficult to pick out just one guide or representative that we dealt with, because they all had the same attitude, make this trip unforgettable for these people. From their extensive knowledge of their guides, to their extensive network of people on the ground, and their unfailing coordination in all aspects of this trip, it was second to none. We felt completely safe and comfortable at all times and would definitely recommend Lady Egypt for any once, or twice, in a lifetime experience . The Egyptian weather was pleasant, low 80's in April, and the Egyptian people were very pleasant.
Don't let being nervous prevent you from experiencing the Land of The Pharaohs, It is awesome!
For the 2nd year Lady Egypt Tours makes our vacation unforgettable. The representative that I was working with was beyond patient when I requested information on 10+ different hotels and asked 101 questions. She arranged all transportation needed before I even asked. We had a tour guide with us each time we moved from one place to the other. They literally did everything while had us seated with a cold refreshing drink in our hands. When I had an annoying situation at one of the hotel I called my representative and she took care of it. Even the tour guide who picked us up from Hurghada Airport was very helpful. Talked to us about all the important highlights on the way to the hotel and was always there whenever we needed anything. Lady Egypt Tours made everything as easy as a click of a button.
Thank you Lady Egypt and Thank you to each and everyone who took the extra step to make this UNFORGETTABLE.
My husband and I spent 11 days and 10 nights touring the wonderful cities and sights of Cairo, Aswan, Luxor, and Hurghada for our honeymoon.
From start to finish, our experience with Lady Egypt was seamless. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate us and make our trip enjoyable. Our tour leader, Khalifa, and each of our tour guides (Mohammed, Mahmoud, and Shareef) were all exceptionally knowledgeable, friendly, and warm. At the end of each tour, we felt as if they were our good friends! I also want to acknowledge Nahla in the Sales Department for crafting the perfect itinerary for us and assisting us through each step of the booking process.
Visiting Egypt was a lifelong dream of ours, and we are so thrilled to be able to now say that we've checked it off our bucket list! Some of the highlights of the trip included watching the sunrise from a hot air balloon ride over Luxor, snorkeling in the Red Sea, and stunning views of temples, tombs, and pyramids.
I truly can't say enough good things about Lady Egypt Tours. We loved every minute of our time here and cannot wait to return to this beautiful country again one day! Thank you SO MUCH for making our honeymoon an incredible and memorable one. ❤️
When I was looking to travel to Egypt for the first time, I knew not where to ask about a tour operator so I resorted to the internet. I usually travel indepently and have done so to Morocco, Israel, the West Bank and Jordan in the area but I was unfamiliar with Egypt. Anyway, Lady Egypt caught my eye because of their consistently excellent reviews and I must now add mine to the list..
Arrival was quick and smooth, with the company's representative, Islam, holding a sign with our clearly printed names greeting us right at the entrance to the terminal before whisking us to a quick check-in for a good night's rest. Our guides, Mohamed El-Zawahry in Cairo and Ahmed Aboudi in Upper Egypt, were knowledgable Egyptologists with a wonderful sense of humor. No request was too difficult for Lady Egypt to accommodate. When we wanted to add El Alamein to our itinerary the day after we arrived, it was organized spur of the moment and without a hitch. A decision to remain at the Mena House hotel instead of switching to another one for our last few days in Cairo was arranged without penalty despite its abruptness. The itinerary was modified as we went along to make adjustments for traffic and other conditions such as the weather. The 12 days could not have gone more smoothly (Islam discreetly kept daily tab of how we were doing from the home office). The amount of knowledge shared by our guides was so informative that I swear by the time I boarded the plane for home I could among many things trace the many traditions that we have adopted today to their origins in ancient Egypt and that I must have at least a working knowledge of hieroglyphics!
Oh and by the way, when Islam heard that while on the Nile cruise we had shown an interest in the Egyptian dessert Om Ali, he presented us each on our return with a tray from Twinky Patisserie in Giza, who after having tried it in different places I have concluded to make the best in town!
Lady Egypt it is–without reservations!
