It’s a wonderful journey to Egypt. The good planning from accommodation to antiquities Egyptian visiting was unforgettable.its your chance to feel safe and relax with this group. The team of Ancient tour provided an amazing high quality of service during all days in different places. The chosen hotel was great in location as well as services, visiting national museum, pyramids with a literature man who was a unique. His knowledge about the history, places, names & dates was unbelievable. Also, going to Nile cruise was a beautiful new experience to see many cities and historical places from Aswan to Luxor during day while involving in some entertainment activities in the night. Really I spent a beautiful time with this team & recommended any visitor to Egypt to engage with Ancient tour to value his staying & get an appropriate knowledge.

I went to Egypt in Oct 2019 for the first time, as solo female traveller. I have travelled to other countries before also as a solo traveller. However, as someone who has appreciated the long history of Egypt I wanted to have the experience of a guide. I chose Vacations to Go after much thought and consideration. I was pleased with the online reviews and had personally called the company and spoke to Walaa who patiently answered all my questions and alleviated any doubts I had about booking with them. For all those considering, understand that in Egypt there are many tour companies! Egypt is still, and will always be a place for tourists to go regardless of any political situation simply because of what it offers. I mean it wholeheartedly, very few countries in the world offer the same amount of incredible and breathtaking monuments that will inspire you and enchant because of its mysteries and wonders. I arrived at Cairo Airport and was immediately greeted by Michael. Michael was amazing in how he made sure that I felt comfortable, even assisting me with getting a late check out. On my last day in Cairo he even assisted me with booking an Uber ride to the airport remotely. (Uber was my choice I altered my plans, Vacations to Go always takes you, to and from airports). While I was in the Uber taxi, he even called the driver to check that I was safe. That was so appreciated. That extra mile and care just made me know that I had chosen the right company. My two days in Cairo was with a wonderful guide Maged. He was so generous in making sure I saw all that I had wanted to in Cairo. He even accompanied me to descend down the Red pyramid, for which we both got wobbly legs and joked about. Maged was an amazing guide, thank you so much. I also met Magdy, the director of Vacations to Go, who accompanied me to the airport from my hotel to Cairo airport en-route to Luxor. He was also friendly, and made me feel safe. In Luxor, Mansour was my guide, he was so committed and passionate about all the places in Luxor. He also went out of his way to ensure I saw all that I had requested and was just as generous. (Thank you Mansour) I went to Alexandria and had Marchel (hope spelling is ok) as the guide. He did a great job of showing me the place, as there were some other interesting travellers who had joined the day tour. I also wish to commend all the drivers I had, they were all incredible. I have so many treasured memories of Egypt and none of these would be possible if it hadn’t been for Vacations to Go. I paid the single supplement as I preferred travelling on my own and was glad I did as it allowed me to bypass quite a few of the crowds and made travelling a lot easier for me. I highly recommend Vacations to Go and for those thinking of going to Egypt, - go with an open mind and open heart and embrace all that it has to offer. As a solo female traveller, I felt safe and respected with my guides at all times and comfortably enjoyed my holiday! Thank you again!

Most particularly the knowledgeable, friendly personnel. Hussein was our guide for the 7 days River Nile cruise and Basem Wagdy guided us in Cairo. They were outstanding not only with their expert knowledge and the way they explained everything but also in looking after us re the cultural norms.

Just returned from Egypt.an experience of a life time a tour,Memphis tours catered for all our various requests.We had 2 private guide and drivers with airconditioned cars plus riverboat cruise. Both guides were excellent with wealth of knowledge on Egyptian history.(Sam) Ossama Mustafa was so helpful and understood our needs with my wife and her health issues helped us to see all the important sites around Cairo and Alexandria- (we have adopted him as our Egyptian son).Took us to his favorite restaurant in Alexandria and food was fantastic-The driver Eman Sayed was the bravest and most skilled driver in Cairo and we requested him when we returned. How he was able to get us around Cairo without incident was amazing and always so polite. All drivers in Cairo and pedestrians have a death wish and there are no rules that are followed. We were met at the Cairo airport by a very helpful young man from Memphis tours - Ahmed Sayed who navigated us though the various trips to the airport and hotel Our personal guide was Alaa Rashwan on the river cruise and tour of sites in Aswan and up to Abul Simbel he was also very helpful and got us away early to beat the rush at various sites Again his knowledge was amazing and I am sure he enjoyed telling the history to my wife who absorbed every word. Luckily we were helped along the way by the guides with tipping. We felt completely safe in Egypt and while it is dirty in Cairo the people are very friendly and we never got sick.

My wife just completed the 10-day ancient Egypt with Nile cruise package. It was perfect. And the way Magdy and his group handled us (Vacationstogo) is the only way to see Egypt...not only to avoid the hassles, but
more so to ensure you remain safe.
All the guides , drivers , etc . were great! Ibrahim in Aswan/Luxor and John/Michael/Mohammad in Giza. .. Thanks again

My husband and I have always wanted to visit Egypt. Our decision to book with vacations to go was the right one! From day 1 to the last day everything was beautifully arranged and organized for us. We did not have to do anything except show up. We had two amazing guides. Rasha in cairo and Ahmed in aswan and luxor. Both were great. Magdy and his team did a great job in making us feel comfortable, safe and taken care of. Keep up the great work!

Booked our tour at the last minute. Magdy and Walaa were very responsive and always available for questions.

Michael was there in arrivals to meet us and escort us through passport control and customs and transfer us to the hotel in Cairo.

Our local guides Tayeb, Ayman, Waleed, and Marwa were very good, taking the time to explain Egyptian history to us (there is so much to learn) and were always on time. Local coordinators Michael and Abdel were super professional and very kind and caring. Mohammed, our driver in Cairo was amazing.

As for the tour’s sights: we were very happy we saved the Egyptian Museum until the end of our tour. This was a great way to tie everything we had learned and seen together! There were limited “shopping” opportunities (papyrus, alabaster, perfumes, jewelry) and they were truly no hassle and optional.

I would make sure to add the Nubian Museum in Aswan and the Luxor Museum to your itinerary if you enjoy museums. Both are top-notch and not often visited on the tour route unless you request.

3-night Nile Cruise was on M/S Royal Esadora from Aswan to Luxor. Cabin was very nice, spacious and very clean. Staff from cabin attendants to restaurant waiters/chefs, and captain were all very professional, friendly and hospitable. Food was good. Time for relaxing on board between temple visits. Roof deck pool (too cold in December) would be great in warm weather.

The pyramids are a giant tourist trap but once you get past the junk sellers and the crowds, appreciate what you are seeing and be amazed. Do go to Saqqara to see the step pyramid. Very worthwhile.

We added a day trip to Alexandria which was very nice. The Library was the highlight, followed by Pompey’s Pillar. Lunch at Fish Market was of high quality and taste.

Our itinerary included several lunches on day tours. In Cairo at Bonne Soirée (very clean and delicious) and in Saqqara (Pyramids Touristik Restaurant). Both were very good and nice staff, clean, and enjoyable.

Make sure you visit Abu Simbel! We flew down/back from Aswan and really had a great experience. It’s a fantastic site you have to see to believe. So glad we didn’t take the bus.

I wouldn’t hesitate to book with Magdy and Walaa again. Very professional, well-organized, responsive, and attentive. Their staff are excellent.

If you’ve always wanted to visit Egypt, now is the time!

Wow what a great trip! This is one of the best if not the only way to travel through Egypt. This is a total package! Take this tour. From start to finish guides are with you at every step to show you EVERTHING. Guides are available 24/7. We were met by Mike at the airport who helped us with hotel check in. Next you meet an Egyptologist, a college graduate/historian who is fluent in English. Ayman answered all of our questions. He is filled with facts and details and explained the history of the sites we toured the Pyramids of Giza, the sphinx, Saqqara, the Hanging Church and the Cairo Museum. Being a group of 2, Ayman was able to customize our tour just for us. For example we skipped the market to spend more time in the museum and we were able to start a half hour later to catch some extra sleep. When the airline lost our luggage, Mohammad was assigned to find it. The company did not take any time away from our guide. Ibrahim Elmonir was our trained English-speaking licensed guide who traveled with us for three nights from Aswan to Luxor. There is no one better than Ibrahim. We saw the Philae Temple, High Dam, took a felucca trip, motor boat to a Nubian village, Komomobo Temple, horse carriage ride to Edfu, Valley of the Kings, Hatsheput temple, Karnak Temple and Colossi of Memnon. Ibrahim has a great sense of humor and made us laugh and feel very comfortable. Ibrahim lives in Luxor and took us exactly where we wanted to go for special deals. I wanted to buy Egyptian perfume/oils and I needed some cold medicine for the flu. Ibrahim took care of everything. Be sure to ask for Ibrahim Elmonir. You won't regret it. Hotel accommodations are good: plenty of hot water and a/c. With the lowest price guarantee you can not go wrong using this company: most meals, most admission tickets, all airline flights and all housing included. Absolutely 5 stars.

We booked this tour through viator and were immediately connected with Madgy via email. This really helped as we were 4 girls that were traveling to Egypt and safety was a concern. Throughout the whole process Madgy was accessible via email and answered all our questions. The tour guides (Tamer in Cairo) and Ahmed in (Luxor Aswan) were fantastic. Both of the guides were so knowledgeable and personable that we immediately felt like they were family. Ahmed's passion for the history of Egypt is contagious, he is an excellent teacher and is able to really show you things throughout the temples that you would keep you engaged. He ensures that his guests feel comfortable and safe throughout the tour. The hotels we stayed at Mena-house Cairo, Sheraton Cairo were fantastic. The only downside to this was the cruise we were on (MoonDance). While we loved our time on the moondance, you could tell that it needed some updating (the spa was not working when we were there, the wifi is expensive, and there is essentially no entertainment on the boat except one of the 4 nights). I would like to mention that the staff and the chef on the moondance was fantastic they really do go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable. Overall, i am so happy we chose vacations to go for our trip to Egypt. If anyone is second guessing a trip to Egypt..Don't. Its a beautiful country with so much history and being with Vacations to go is the way to go!
