A wonderful trip to Egypt. I contacted Zicasso travel to find a custom travel plan to Egypt because I was not comfortable traveling on my own to a country so unknown to me.
The trip planner at this tour company understood my apprehension in traveling in an unknown culture and arranged for us a wonderful experience with no stress at all. Everything was guided by local guides and drivers who were extremely knowledgable and were able to keep us comfortable in this wonderful culture. The tour included all tickets, hotels transportation and even tips for the bathrooms! Every detail was covered even down to having clean windows on our vehicles to allow us to take photos as we drove. Our guides were highly trained and exposed us to much more than the tourist destinations. They became friends and gave us a peek into their personal lives, introduced us to the local foods and helped us bargain for purchases. We were even invited to dinner with our guide's sister for a camel meat dinner, should we return to Egypt. I came home feeling very happy with our trip and wanting to return someday. I can't thank the tour company enough for listening to our needs and giving us more than we expected.
It's hard to determine a best on such a trip, but overall I am most satisfied with the total sense of security the personnel of the tour company gave us. That sense of ease allowed us to fully enjoy all the marvelous experiences we encountered from climbing into the Great Pyramid to visiting the Nubian Village to negotiating the Old City of Cairo. It was especially nice to have the help negotiating the airport and visa nuances throughout the trip, not to mention the convenience of having transportation at hand everywhere we went.
I would add extra time in all locations (Cairo, Luxor, Aswan). I found each place had more to offer than we planned, and would like to have had time to enjoy a more relaxed pace.
