Our 'first' trip to Egypt with this travel agency was much better and easier than we expected. It was our first time using a private tour and we were very pleased with how smoothly everything went and how nice they all are. Our travel planner, our greeter at the airport, the drivers, and the guides only wanted to make us happy. It was fun! No worries!
Our guides in the south and in Cairo were both highly educated experts that speak good English, had the answers to all our many questions, were both very patient and we were never rushed around. Since we were not with a group, we could spend as much time as we wanted at most of the places and took advantage of that. Also, it was fun talking to the guides about current events in Egypt, their customs and politics while riding in the car.
There was not one minute that we did not feel safe. There is a noticeable Police presence around town, officers at every site, and an occasional military checkpoint along the roads. Its obvious they want to keep us safe and they do.
Philae, Edfu, Kom Ombo, Luxor, Karnak, Valley of the Kings, Habu, Valley of the Queens, the Pyramids, Sphinx and the Museum. Plus everything else except the bazaar. After 3 weeks, I am still trying to soak it all in. Truly astounding if you are into ancient history. Go to Egypt!
Definitely I would spend more time at the museum. There is at least 2 days of stuff to see, and probably more when the new museum opens next year. Its gigantic and will have the colossal statue of King Ramses II in the atrium.
I will skip the bazaar next time. We walked in and were continually hounded from both sides, and could not even look at anything without it getting crammed in our faces. After about 20 minutes of that and then getting ripped off for a cheap t-shirt by a professional con man, we left with our money in our pockets.
All in all, a wonderful trip of a lifetime for us. I highly recommend this company.
