    BEST Egypt Trip Ever!

    My family of three spent our 2021 Thanksgiving Holiday in Egypt. Egypt Direct Tours made our private tour the best experience with VIP care from the beginning to the end. We now understand and appreciate Egypt much better. As a matter of fact, We Love Egypt and want to go back someday! We can not thank Ahmed and our guides enough. You gifted us the rich experiences and the memories to last a lifetime. πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™

    Since I started the initial exploring emails with Ahmed, he effectively took over the responsibilities to plan the entire trip for me. Ahmed proactively supplied the details including brochures and pictures to help us make decisions on the 9-day program plus the optional trips such as Alexandria, Nubian Village, and Hot Air Balloon ride over Valley of the Kings. During the trip, Ahmed checked on us everyday to ensure our guides and the activities were meeting our expectations. πŸ‘ He is always communicative, straightforward, and reliable. We trust him 120%. He genuinely treats the visitors as his friends.

    Knowledgeable Guides:
    1. Momdouh is the BEST guide in Cairo. The way he passionately described the history made the Kings, the Queens, and all persona come alive. He wants to share as much as possible so the visitors have a fun and insightful experience. Walking with Momdouh in Cairo felt like accompanying the mayor. People greet him on the street with admiration and respect. He knows all the monuments, buildings, trees, and rocks. Thank you, Momdouh. You should run for the mayor. πŸ‘

    2. Mohamed took us on the 5-day river cruise visiting Luxor, Edfu, Kom Ombo, Aswan, and Abu Simbel. In addition to explaining the history and the architecture, he also told us about the diverse people and the cultural differences. πŸ‘ Bonus activities Mohamed kindly offered us that other cruise guests did not have the opportunity to enjoy: 1) He taught us the basics of Hieroglyphics + some symbols so we could identify some scripts on the ancient walls. 2) He took us to the local market to experience the authentic local lifestyle and negotiated the best price for our shopping. 3) On a small boat ride to Nubian Village, he found a beautiful corner on Nile River and let us swim in the river. We absolutely loved it. (No worries – There is no crocodile in the river downstream of the dams.) 4) On the River Cruise, we visited the Captain’s bridge and honk the horn at the boats we were passing by. Thank you, Mohamed. We are still talking about you in the US.

    3. Hassan is the BEST driver in Cairo. We went everywhere safe and fast in the midst of the extremely chaotic yet uneventful traffic. πŸ‘ He sometimes stopped the van to buy local food and juice to share with us out of his kindness. (You must try these juices: mango, guava, & sugar cane. Yummy!) Though Hassan is not an official guide, we learned many landmarks in Cairo and Alexandria from him. In addition, he respectfully shared the 5 pillars of Islam with us. Hassan is a model Muslim. Thank you, Hassan. We miss you.

    Egypt Direct Tours did an excellent job arranging all the transportations including cars, domestic flights, river cruise, local boats, and horse carriage. The vehicles were always waiting upon our pickups. Other tourists admired us being ushered to the private transport in style. We simply hop on and off to start or continue our fun activities. πŸ˜€

    Our trip was “perfection”. Our only complaint is that we should have stayed longer. Egypt Direct Tours took very good care of us so we could focus on learning and enjoying Egypt without worrying about the research, planning, or logistics. We truly maximized the experience and the VALUE. πŸ‘ We are going to send all our friends to Egypt Direct Tours so they have a wonderful trip like ours. πŸ˜€

    Note: Egypt Direct Tours offers the best value comparing to other travel companies. A friend of mine joined a large group tour from the US and paid double for the same program. We had a VIP private tour for half of the price. Please contact EDT directly on their website. Amazing!

    + PROS: 1. Best VALUE 2. The care, services, and TRUST exceeded our expectations. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
    - CONS: We should have stayed longer. There is so much to see and so many more cities to visit.

    This was the most memorable travel experience I have ever had with my wife. All the sites I visited including Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Old Cairo, Luxor were spectacular. My travel guide Mr. Nasser made the trip memorable. He also had a great sense of humor as we keep joking in the Arabic Language kept me laughing throughout the trip. The driver Abdullah was also very friendly, always ready to help with currency exchange, bringing beer and wine. Luxor trip driver and guide were also very helpful. I highly recommend Egypt Direct tours. Thanks, guys
