Amazing trip
Kamlesh_L, Dec 2023
Amazing trip from start to finish, very friendly staff from tour operators Bassant or guide Mohamed Sayed and driver Rahim, Farouk
Nike cruise
Ruman_B, Sep 2023
My most memorable part of the tour was doing the 4 day Nile cruise. It was really well organised with great on board facilities. Zacharya was reassuring, dependable and highly knowledgeable with regards to the locations we visited. Usually I don’t go on cruises but in order to get around the South of Egypt and visit the most historic sites it is a must if you like your history.
Best tour to visit Egipt!
Arnau_S, Sep 2023
Amazing tour to visit all egypt! To say it in short, it was an amazing experience! The pyramids, the temples, the cruise, the tours and the staff of the tour were 10/10! In more details, our Spanish guides Magdy in El Cairo/Giza and Mohamed Hassan in the Cruise days were amazing! 200/10!!! They speak very well Spanish and know a lot about Egyptian history. Also mention a Spanish guide we had in Abu Simbel called Mohamed, who was very clear and humble and he explain us very very well about the history of Abu Simbel. The four guides done it very well! Also our drivers to go to the hotel, airport, and different parts of Egypt were very nice and drive very calm and safe! I remember a few names but everyone were very professional like Rahim, Amr and Sayed. And last but not least, Mona who has plan, guide and advice us about the tour in every moment! She ask us every day how everything was going and we are very glad to have her as organizer. Very kind and good person, a treasure of this tour🙏🏽 And of course Mohamed Sayed, the best driver/guide/organizer/advisor and savior! He help us in different parts of the organization of the tour like going with the train, and the airport and also after the tour was over, he help us to not get scam in another hotel! And he help us to find a new one fast in a good price and conditions. A true gentleman and good person. He is also a fundamental part of this tour, so thank you very much Mohamed if you are reading this 🙏🏽. Only I can say it was a pleasure to go with this tour and I recommended 100%. Wishing all the best to all the members of the tour. شكرا لكم على كل شيء

Everyone was attentive to my needs. It was great friendly service. Rocky and Mona are exceptional. Thank you for an experience of a lifetime.
Very Solid
Salim_C, Jul 2023
Great way to see the major sites of Egypt! Includes a decent hotel in Cairo with a nice river cruise along the Nile. We really enjoyed the sites in Cairo, Luxor, Aswan & in between. Be ready to tip a lot as it’s expected for almost anyone that helps you. Our hot air balloon also got cancelled which seems to happen quite a bit in the summer time, but aside some logistical hiccups, the tour is very solid & we learned a lot from our tour guides!
Do this. You won’t regret it.

Amazing bucket list trip. Mohammad Esma (Cairo Agent) is super helpful, friendly and fluent in English. Mona in the office kept up with us over WhatsApp throughout the tour and checked on us nearly everyday to be sure we had no issues. Balloon ride was canceled due to weather (out of their control) but instead of the default refund, Mona worked with us to substitute an equivalent tour for our “free day” at the end and we had a great time! They really do go out of their way to make sure you’re happy. The optional additions are very reasonably priced and we felt we got good value for our money. Our Cruise guide, Rocky, was great. We really got to know the rest of our group during the cruise and made friendships that just may extend beyond this trip (we exchanged contact information and might meet up again).We elected to ride the included overnight train back and forth between Cairo and Upper Egypt for the cruise. The outbound train was old, dirty and uncomfortable temperature (hot and cold at different times) and lights stayed on all night which was probably a good thing because we caught someone trying to steal our stuff. The return however was a NEW train (2023) and was absolutely wonderful. Clean, modern (power at every seat, dimmed lightest night, can spin rows around to face each other, power doors). If we hadn’t been awakened to check tickets for the third time at 3am, we would have slept the whole way. If you can get a new train, I can’t see the value in upgrading to sleeper or flight. If it’s the old train, it’s a tougher decision.
The best tour in Egypt!
Katherine_M, Jan 2023
My wife and I had an absolutely amazing time on this tour, our tour guides were fantastic, knowledgeable and approachable. The tour itself was well organized and if we had any questions, they were quick to respond. A big shoutout to our tour guide in Cairo, Mohamed, he went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of!!! Would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to see the best of Egypt!
Great
John_L, Oct 2022
Our tour guide Ahmed was excellent. This is an action packed tour. Multiple activities every day and great flexibility. If you are leaving the tour early and want to rebook another time Here tours are super accommodating for you. If you want to experience as much of Egypt as you can in a short amount of time this is the tour for you! Travelling on my own I met some awesome people too 😊
Great Egypt tour
Valerin_S, Oct 2022
I had a great time! Here Egypt tours made sure I am safe and maximized my time in exploring the above mentioned destinations. Ahmed, my tour guide from Luxor was so knowledgeable about Ancient Egyptian history and is very good at making sure all of us tourists in his team were safe. He made my birthday trip special at the cruise by having the whole dining team sing me happy birthday and made me a cake. Thank you Egypt for such awesome memories.
An amazing 8 days
Horanyi_B, Sep 2022
We had an amazing 8 days in egypt with many activities. We got to see all the main attractions in Cairo, luxor and Aswan & everything was very well organised. Our guide in Cairo, Mohamed has been very helpful for us. He gave us many advices and made us feel very welcome in egypt. I recomend him to everyone. I also recomend this trip to everyone as it allows you to see the main atractions in egypt in a really good way with also a good price.
Once in a lifetime, First experience of Egypt!
Sue_H, Aug 2022
We are just finishing an 8 day tour of Egypt- a very foreign culture and society to what we are used to. Throughout our Giza tour with our guide Engy and our driver Sayed; our Nile cruise - from Luxor to Aswan- with Ahmed El Desokky and our Cairo welcome and contact with Mohamed Sayed, we have been beautifully guided, informed, befriended, and driven through some chaotic traffic very safely. Ahmed and Engy were incredibly knowledgeable, and along with Mohamed, were also aware of and happy to discuss modern day issues concerning Egypt. Ahmed coped with 4 of us firing questions - in 40deg plus heat without issue!. He also gave us direction with local customs of showing appreciation for services- very important. And beautiful Engy even insisted on shouting us an icecream with her tip! We have learned so much from our guides- amazing. Only thing to be aware of with booking is the standard of amenities and accommodation. The train was pretty ordinary( we upgraded to sleeping)- amenities pretty ordinary. Leaking loos etc. This is a Government train however and has no bearing on the booking company- except maybe a heads up! We upgraded from 3 star hotel for similar reasons, but the cruise ship was simply awesome. Awesome. All staff have been helpful, friendly and welcoming.
Nile cruise
Piero_B, Jul 2022
The best part of the trip was by far my guide Sabry. I would rate him 5 stars. Also the cruise Jaz Crown Jubilee exceeded my expectations. Great service and food.
Highly Skilled Guides who take care of every step for you
Tara_S, Oct 2021
BOTH of my guides were AMAZING!! My house in Cairo, Sherif (sorry if I misspelled) was super attentive and knowledgeable and actually took the time to decipher some of the hieroglyphs for me, which i know is a specialized skill. I am so grateful for the time I had with him considering not input his expertise but also his professionalism and friendliness. The guide I had on the cruise all the way to Luxor was also AMAZING, and i appreciated her expertise and organization. She always explained things really well to the group and I learned a lot from her that really enriched every visit. Also, she gave great advice and was really good about making sure we knew all expenses for the day before we left, so it was easy to be prepared and not taken by surprise. I would wholeheartedly recommend both of these guides and the tour in general. Thank you for a great trip.
Great Tour guide Ramzy
Ruth_A, Oct 2021
Wow! What an incredible 8 days. The whole experience was amazing. From visiting the Pyramids with a fantastic guide called Sherif to experiencing an overnight sleeper train to Luxor (well worth the upgrade) The Nile cruise was beautiful. The boat was called opera. The rooms were big an airy. Was lovely to lie back on my bed and watch from the balcony the scenery on the banks of the Nile pass me by. I had a wonderful guide called Ramzy who escorted me and my small group of solo travellers around each temple on the tour. His knowledge of ancient Egypt is second to none. Any issue or question we had, he sorted for us. Honestly such a great guy, professional and so much fun. Was sad for the tour to come to an end. Highly recommend this 8 day experience.

Sorprendente y muy ilustrativo
Jaime_V, Oct 2023
Compramos este tour 4 días antes. Por tener buenas opiniones e incluir el Globo. Lo único que tenía dudas era sobre el tren vip... pero la verdad el tren es moderno y seguro, y es una opción económica... sino se ofrecen upgrades a tren sleeper. En estos tours se tiene una persona a cargo, en este caso fue Mona... ella siempre se preocupo porque estemos bien y se cumpla lo ofrecido, estaba atenta a cualquier observación con respecto a los guías, los chóferes, el itinerario, y nuestra comodidad. Recomiendo desde el primer momento tener contacto con el encargado de su tour y hacerle todas las consultas, les dará tranquilidad saber que alguien se preocupa porque todo salga bien y hace respetar el paquete que adquirimos. Los guías muy buenos... tuvimos algunas observaciones y Mona nos ayudó inmediatamente.
かなり充実したツアー
Koji_Y, Aug 2023
全行程、かなり充実したツアーでした。基本英語ガイドでしたが、カイロ及びアスワン、ルクソール共に、偶然に日本語も喋れるガイドさんにあたり、英語がわからない子供には、とても助かりました。特にアスワン、ルクソールのガイドさんは良かったです。クルーズについては、若干、船は古いも清潔で、食事も想像以上に良かったです。船内の飲み物は別料金でしたが、観光後船に戻る前にガイドさんが地元スーパーによってくれたりしたので、まったく困ることはありませんでした。本当におすすめのツアーです。気球も少し乗る前は不安でしたが、安全対策も徹底しており、最高でした。有難うございました。
Crucero y Sabri top 🔝
Fabrizio_M, Jul 2022
El tour en general es muy bueno. Lo mejor es el crucero (Jaz Crown Jubilee) y nuestro guía Sabri. Hace una explicación muy ordenada y clara. 5 🌟 para los 2.
