We just completed a 2-week tour with this tour company to Egypt and Jordan. Everything went off just as promised. Our tour planner responded quickly to all of our questions--often in minutes. He would also call if there were things that needed clarifying. He provided a comprehensive itinerary and list of emergency numbers--though we never needed them:-)
From our pick up at the airport--they moved us quickly through immigration. This was so appreciated as we don't speak Arabic. Our tour guides were with us from start to finish, in Cairo and in southern Egypt. Both guides were highly knowledgeable and had excellent English. Their command of the language was comprehensive and very nuanced. They offered us much more than rote description, but really brought alive the history, architecture, people, and art. They adapted to our style of touring and made each visit seem special and pertinent to our interests.
The hotels selected were great==safe, nice rooms with excellent views, good food, and nice amenities. The Nile cruise ship was very comfortable and offered a unique way to see the country from a different perspective and at a bit slower pace.
We had the same drivers for most of the trip. The vehicles were very comfortable and the drivers adhered to speed limits and made us feel safe and secure.
Our time in Jordan was short, but operated in the same manner--great access to guide at Petra and in Amman as well as an excellent driver.
Security is very present in the country and we always felt safe. We were able to walk alone and in the evenings and did not face hassle or feel concern for our safety.
The pyramids (and sites leading up to the pyramid) were amazing. Loved the camel ride at sunset--had thought it would be hokey, but it was an excellent way to gain perspective on these amazing structures. We enjoyed the trip through the desert to Abu Simbel and thoroughly enjoyed our time sailing down the Nile. It takes time in Luxor to see everything--but it was worth it!
Would have allowed for another day in Aswan so we could enjoy all of the amenities on Elephant Island.
