Overall, we were extremely pleased with our experience. We chose to have a private driver and private guide for this trip. We greatly appreciated the individualized and well-organized process of the entire trip. We were surprised and pleased that our agent had already purchased our visas and was able to walk us through customs and immigration on our arrival and escort us to the airline check-in counters. Even though signs were in English, it was very helpful to have someone walk us through the airport. The guides and drivers were prompt and prepared. The individualized attention made us feel very special! The itinerary allowed us to see the main sites and get a good feel for the country.
Egypt was a place I had wanted to visit since childhood. The trip was everything I could have wanted and more. We viisted the most famous sites in Cairo and Luxor. 5000 years of history is much to absorb! We were in awe of the scale and beauty of the temples and tombs. We chose to purchase extra tickets to enter the Great Pyramid and tombs as well as photography tickets so that I could use my camera in the museums and tombs. There really aren't adequate words to describe the incredible beauty of the hieroglyphics and to obtain a glimpse into ancient cultures. It was also fascinating to see current archeological teams working at the tombs. We enjoyed the chaos of Cairo traffic and walking through local markets. Truely, a trip of a lifetime!
I would have picked a nicer hotel in Luxor. The hotel wasn't a luxury hotel but it had nice grounds and a lovely, heated swimming pool.
