Considering Egypt? Go now with Odynovo!
If you've ever considered doing Egypt, consider now with Odynovo. They were fantastic from pickup in Cairo, through Nile cruise, and drop-off in Cairo. I have even given my permission to the company to personally verify their operations. I had my doubts in spite of all the 5 star reviews, and breathed a sigh of relief when Talat met us getting off the plane. Thomas was our travel agent, and we can't thank him enough for everything he did for us, not the least of which was recommend a hotel upgrade to The Steigenberger Tahrir Square in Cairo. We,ve done a lot of breakfast buffets, but they had the best by far. Hany was our guide in Cairo and he was fantastic. We started in Memphis, the the Steppe Pyramid, Giza Pyramids, museum, markets, mosque. Lots of free time as well. Odynovi is with you every step of the way, and that meant early pickup at the hotel for an early flight to Aswan, where they meet you again off the plane. Our guide for the rest of the trip was Saleh. It's one thing to be shown around by someone with knowledge about what you're seeing, Odynovo takes it to a different level because their guides are Egyptologists, which means they have a university degree in Egyptology. It was really fun learning about the critical stories behind so many of the artifacts. All of this was done in a 10 passenger A/C van, which we had to ourselves. Saleh then accompanied us on the cruise and escorted us on every unbelievable tour. Our cruise ship was the Blue Shadow. Solid 4 star ship. Why I say go now is because of the lack of crowds. Specifically, when we did the temple in Aswan you had maybe 3% of the ferry boats in use to get out to the island. On the Nile there were at most 10 cruise ships out of 250 being operated and those were maybe at 50 occupancy. The cruise reminded us as to why we were on vacation. In between amazing escorted visits to the top sites in the world, you can see Egypt go by topside from the ship. Please verify the current CDC restrictions for reentry and verify German transit requirements as well as the latest Egyptian requirements. We almost missed the trip because of the German 72 hour requirement, but we had our vaccine cards (bring yours if you have it). We only needed the antigen test for the return trip, but because of my wife's fears we decided to get tested once we were back in Cairo. Again, Thomas was right on it and we were met once again by Talat who escorted us to the clinic, translated everything and then waited with us for the results before escorting us back to the airport. A couple last things. We had looked at doing this with Trafalgar. Nothing against them, but Odynovo was a private, escorted tour, that was about $2,500 less. We were able to book on Lufthansa the week before from Dallas to Frankfort to Cairo for about $750 each. CONCLUSION. I can't say it strongly enough. Thank you everyone at Odynovo for a fantastic trip that fulfilled a lifelong dream! And I didn't even get into the private visit in a Nubian village or the hot air balloon ride over the Valley of the Kings!

Amazing Trip
Apr 2021 • Family
Odynovo is a super wonderful agency, and they have even more wonderful tour guides. It was almost like we were visiting old friends. Our guide was Ahmed. He is super sweet & funny and also a very very knowledgeable guide; he knows what he’s talking about. I was actually surprised at how much I learned from him. He makes sure you know what you’re looking at without boring you. Our driver was Sharif, and he’s absolutely the best at driving in Egypt haha, super super great. He’s incredibly nice as well. Make sure you tip well with these two! (;

The tour of the Giza Pyramid was surreal, but it was super nice to release negative energy & gather the story behind it. The Sphinx was huge and honestly breathtaking I do recommend this tour solely for this masterpiece. Memphis was super super nice but Saqara is where it’s att.

I can say it was the greatest experience I’ve had the opportunity to have especially with such amazing guides. 1000/1000 would recommend it all.

Egypt and Jordan 23 Days
Jan 2020
From beginning to end, our trip to Egypt and Jordan was sensational.

Odynovo and our agent, Monica, went above and beyond to ensure our trip was faultless.

The organisation of every detail, from initial planning, itinerary, communication, checking in, visas, transfers, drivers, guides, attractions, accommodation and knowledge was awesome. Monica was even available during the trip to assist with any questions or extras we wanted to add.

We had our own guide, driver and car for the whole trip which was great. We did lots of research before we went and before we chose Odynovo, and Odynovo were by far the cheapest and most comprehensive tour we found, by far!

We would certainly recommend this company to our friends and family for future trips.

Ancient History: Tangible, Delightful and Delicious!
Mar 2020
You often hear this phrase when you travel: "We know you have lots of choices when you travel, and we're thankful and delighted you chose to travel with us!" This usually sounds like a platitude, but it was sincere coming from our Odynovo travel rep, Leo Huang, and my whole party is now thanking Odynovo for granting the wish of a lifetime.

To be clear about the trip - it was meant to be 17 days long, including stops in Egypt, Jordan and Israel. From the day we arrived (6 MAR), travel situations changed daily. In the end, we had to stop the tour 6 days in due to countries closing borders to onward travel, and airlines cancelling flights while we stood in line to catch transit flights. While we only got a third of what we paid for, those six days were of such high quality that we decided to rebook the remaining days next year and finish the adventure.

Pictures are uploaded, and I will tell you that, just like when we learned all the facts in 7th grade world history, N.O.T.H.I.N.G. is as awe-inspiring as standing, diminished, among 4000 yr old temple columns, or crawling like an ant on the feet of the Pyramids.

What burnished the whole tour to a brilliant shine was undoubtedly the local guides. Rafat Hammad met us, transported us, and then sweated all of the insane travel changes with us with a sense of tongue-in-cheek humor that never for a moment made us feel anything less than confident in his ability to look out for the five of us.

Our guide for the two-day tour of Cairo, Pyramids and more was conducted by Nihel (Mrs.), a triple-degree bearing historian and professor with an infectious sense of humor and a nose for good eats. Contrary to other guides on this trip (Luxor) and from other adventure (previous and non-Odynovo) who just "show up and throw up" their historical facts to fill the tour timetable, Nihel was conversational, invited our questions, and helped to bridge our understanding of Egyptian history and culture over time.

In brief, we're already booked for next year, and you'd be wise to try Odynovo once, because you, too, will rebook with pleasure.

Odynovo delivers! Guides who know their stuff and well planned trips
Feb 2020
We used Odynovo for an 18 day trip to Egypt and Jordan. Best experience ever!

Mason Li was our travel consultant - he was amazing, customizing our trip, extremely responsive and personable - ensuring this was a trip of a lifetime. Someone met us at the airport and we had drivers. Our guides though were almost as amazing as the sights. They were real Egyptologists, were friendly and we had hours of conversations. The booking was easy, they were professional and they took care of 1,000 details so we could just enjoy ourselves.

We stayed in 6 different accommodations and drove hundreds of miles- I can't imagine trying to do this trip without the help of a company like Odynovo. We always book all our travel alone without help - but Egypt is not a place where this is a good idea. You definitely need a driver and having knowledgeable guides made the experience so much better.

Special thanks to our guides: Mohamed Abdallah in Cairo, Tarek Hassan for Aswan and the Nile Cruise portion and our driver Mr. Wasim in Jordan.

I have been a lot of places, but Egypt is truly magical, safe and filled with the kindest people anywhere I have ever been.

Excellent Tour
Feb 2020
We totally enjoyed our private (two of us) guided tour. Do remember that every time you interact with someone you need to have a tip ready! Climbing inside the Great Pyramid is not for the unfit. Be prepared that the pathway is narrow and the footing is precarious. The room at the top is not very impressive but it is awesomely cool to be able to say you were inside the Great Pyramid! As of this writing, the light show is not very impressive; I did, however, enjoy listening to the history that was the narrative. Our guide and driver were great and very accommodating. Monica and Odynovo did a great job setting up this tour!

Ahmed Salem - Tour Guide (Odynovo)
Feb 2020
We arranged a 14-day trip of Egypt with Odynovo Tours. From start to finish Odynovo provided us with exceptional service and at a reasonable price. We will certainly be using Odynovo for our next trip, once we decide where, and will be recommending them to all our friends in Ottawa Canada.

All of the guides and drivers they arranged for us were first class and taught us much about Egyptian history and culture. Special kudos to Ahmed Salem and Mohamed Saed. The people we encountered in Egypt were friendly and we had no concerns whatsoever. Many Egyptians, especially school children and families also visit their ancient sites to appreciate their own history...its not just us tourists.

Our guide in Cairo, Ahmed Salem, was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. We were with him for 3 full days visiting the sphinx and pyramids of Giza, Saqqara, Dojoser and Memphis; the Egyptian Museum, the Citadel of Salah El Din and Mohammed Ali Mosque, the Church of Abu Serga; the Moallaqa Church; and the Ben Ezra Synagogue. Mr. Salem was a pleasure to be with and very informative about both ancient and current Egypt. He also made time for us each day to eat typical Egyptian food and to take tea. He has a great sense of humour which made each day with him a pleasure. We highly recommend that anyone visiting Cairo seek out Mr. Salem as their guide. He will definitely make your visit to Egypt much more memorable. We hope to see him again in the future.

Wonderful private tour of Egypt
Jan 2020
Gina at Odynovo arranged a wonderful trip in Egypt, including two days in and around Cairo, the pyramids and Sphinx and a a three day Nile River Cruise. Hassim met us at the airport, Khalid was our driver around Cairo, Muhammed was our private guide of the sites and all went well. Egyptian flights from and back to Cairo were excellent, For our three day Nile cruise from Aswan to Luxor, we were on the M/S Mayfair (great facilities, food and staff) and our private guide was Essam Aseel, who was outstanding. The details were all arranged perfectly, and the information given in advance of the trip was clear and helpful. My wife and I endorse Odynovo and Gina and their plans. This was part of a trip for us that also included nine days in Morocco and the rest of the trip (also arranged by Odynovo) also went perfectly.

Great part of Egypt jordan Israel tour
Feb 2020 • Couples
Guide Ahmed Kamona excellent - very knowledgable and helpful. Driver Sharif amazing in tough traffic. Both made our trip enjoyable. And always on time. Odynovo didn't advise about some optional extras that required significant extra cash (e.g. camel ride) but Ahmed was prepared with extra cash and we repaid him next day. Also flight reservations made by odynovo for next stage of our trip didn't allow us to check-in ahead of time but assume we can check-in in person at airport without issue.
But all in all a great part of our trip.

Excellent private tour of Egypt. If you are looking for the best private tour company to see Egypt check out Odynovo. I did in nine day tour and customized it to add on a day trip to Alexandria. The Nile cruise ship was definitely the best of the fleet.
