        50th Anniversary Trip to Egypt
        Great trip. My second time to Egypt using Your Egypt Tours. 50th anniversary trip to Cairo and Luxor and a 4 night Nile River cruise. Mona was great in reservations and her English is better than most Americans. Great personal guides, drivers, etc all provided by YETs. Would use them again in a heartbeat. PS......we encountered no safety issues in Egypt during our whole trips. Americans are welcomed (just as Mona assured us it would be).

        Marvelous time in Egypt
        Visiting Egypt had been on my family's bucket list for a few years now. We usually like to explore cities on our own, but knew we needed help on this destination. We worked with Mona from Your Egypt Tours over email to create a custom experience for my family which includes 2 teenagers. They helped us customize itineraries to cover the places we wanted to see in the most efficient manner. Our trip included Cairo, Hurghada, Luxor, Aswan and Abu Simbel. Transportation was flawless in new comfy minibuses. guides were very knowledgeable and spoke perfect Spanish, and we felt very safe throughout our journey. Overall, we had a marvelous time

        Amazing local Food Tour in Cairo at night with great local guide
        I was not feeling well the evening we went on this tour, but our guide worked with us to bring some amazing local Egyptian foods to us to try. (It was Ramadan so the City was in a festive mood after dark, but we never felt unsafe. So although we did not walk as much as we would normally would have, our guide was very accommodating and friendly, and we felt well-served. I think this tour is a must for anyone who wants to experience how the "real" Egyptians eat and live. We learned about some foods (like Koshary and falafel) and various meat sandwiches that I will try to recreate at home. I can't rate this tour highly enough! Be adventurous and take this tour!!!

        Worth the extra money if you are really interested in learning about pharaonic history.
        This tour was exceptional in all ways. Mamdouh has a great depth of knowledge and a passion for history. He knew all the places to go and was able to show us some remarkable, less visited sites. The bus was comfortable and our driver an estute navigator of Cairo traffic.

        Amazing Cultural Experience with a warm and friendly team!
        Your Egypt Tours was AMAZING! They took care of us and made sure that we had a fabulous time! Our guides - Mamdouh in Cairo and Ash in Luxor and Aswan were great! Mamdouh esp was great with story telling and captured the attention of our three boys! Johnny our driver in Cairo was warm and friendly with a smile on his face all the time.. and Ahmed - who was helping us with our airport transfer and pick ups - was super helpful and friendly! Ali and Mona who helped us create the iternary did a fabulous job and took very good care of us! We were in Egypt for about 15 days - from Cairo, to sharm, the Nile cruise and back to Cairo / Alexandria. We did black and white desert with them and kids had a fabulous time! It was an adventure and we learnt a lot. They had lot of patience and were very attentive to our needs- esp out three boys - aged 7 and 10! Our boys celebrated their 10th bday there and they added a boat ride on the Nile to celebrate with a cake! It was awesome! We were initially hesitant as we were not sure how safe it was to travel there in Dec 2023/ Jan 2024 but it was perfect. They all took good care of us and made sure we had a wonderful time! I would highly recommend them for your trip to egypt!

        An experience you will never forget!!
        What an an amazing experience being able to see the pyramids and Sphinx. Menna our tour guide had so much information for us, which was so interesting. We also went to the Grand Egyptian Museum which had an incredible collection and watched an mesmerizing audiovisual exhibition of Tutankhamens life. We have to come back and stay for longer there is so much more to experience!

        Your Egypt Tours = peace of mind
        We were a family of 3 traveling with another family of 3 most of the 8 days in Egypt, plus we had another family of 3 with slightly different itinerary that had touch points with ours. Your Egypt Tours (YET) made a custom itinerary for us, with drivers and Egyptologists, and with cars in very good working condition. We spent 3.5 days in Cairo, a day in Aswan, a day in Abu Simbel and 2 days in Luxor. We took 3 internal flights and 2 road trips. Everything went very smoothly. We had great Egyptologists who took an interest in showing us around and captured some good group photos as well. There were hiccups with our travel, as usual with any trip. The highlight was that YET helped us out every time. Our luggage was late and YET made sure to get our luggage to us from the local courier the next day. We had trouble with one of the guides, and within one hour we had a new guide. We wanted to visit for off-the-beaten-path places, and our guide made it happen. A local show was canceled, YET made sure we had a great alternate experience. Guides were able to take us to the good places where locals eat, and had tons of patience while we shopped the markets of Khan-el-Khalili. Would highly recommend folks to travel with Your Egypt Tours!

        We Attempt to See Egypt All in One Trip
        We planned our trip 1 year ago. The actual travel happened at Easter of this year. The plan was to see all of Egypt in 1 trip, so the total trip was 23 days. We flew Lufthansa from Detroit to Frankfurt to Cairo. Everything went well and we absolutely loved flying Lufthansa. We had decided to hire a tour company for the first half or our trip, and they met us in the airport, got us to our hotel (right on the Nile). The next day we saw the Pyramids, the Sphinx, and the Egyptian Museum. We had a woman tour guide - Hend. She was wonderful. We rode the camels at the Pyramids, I recommend it, if only for the photos. The next day we flew south and started a 5 day Nile cruise. Each day starts with a different Egyptian temple. We had a small group led by a college educated guide. Yassir was with us for the whole cruise. You get back to the boat for lunch and the boat starts moving to the next stop. The scenery from the top deck was great. There is also a bar and a pool. We made friends with the bartender Sayed. I felt like I made a friend; he really watched out for us. It was greatly appreciated. The temples were fascinating. The Egyptian history makes our own American history seem very recent in comparison. The downside was that there was just sooo much history that my brain hurt. Far and away, the best day was at the Valley of the Kings. Being inside the ancient tombs with all the carvings and wall paintings was almost overwhelming. Everything is close enough to touch, in the States there would be bulletproof glass. When the Nile cruise was ended we flew back to Cairo. Cairo is roughly the same size as the city we are from, by square miles, but the population is 25 million. The traffic has very few rules, it seems, but it still moves pretty good. I never felt unsafe but we were always in tourist areas. For the second half of the trip we flew to Sharm el Sheikh. While there we stayed at a resort very similar to what you might find in Mexico or the Caribbean. I scuba dive on vacation and the diving in the Red Sea is on every diver's bucket list. The diving did not disappoint. I did all the local dives and had a really good time. The dive boats are pretty fancy and large. I would guess that we usually had around 75 divers. The equipment was fine, the dive masters are good. I was grouped with other english-speaking divers. Most divers were from Italy, with a lot of German, French, and English. Almost no Americans in Egypt. The only downside to the dive boats is that they are too large, too many divers. I prefer small boats, small groups. Large boats also mean a lot of wasted time. It took all day to dive in Egypt; in Cozumel you can be back to the bar and swimming pool by lunch. The resort staff really likes Americans; I guess we tip for service and most other countries do not. I bring a lot of small bills and tip in dollars. That makes me friends like Hamdy, our favorite waiter after dinner. Mohammed the bartender wade a really good Mojito. Even the guy that cleaned our room was super friendly and took care of us. Egypt's location relative to Sudan, Saudi Arabia, and Israel was not something that I thought about until I got there. Sudan is on their southern border and they are having a civil war. Saudi Arabia is visible across the water on clear days. Israel and the Gaza strip is literally up the road from our resort. I never felt any kind of danger. Nobody talked about politics or world events. Egypt really needs tourism, they don't have anything else, really. And so, they take good care of their tourists, they dont want any bad press. In summary, this was a ounce in a lifetime trip and I am not sorry that I went. Total cost was around $16,000. I an 64 this year. If I was a few years older, this trip might be too much. There is a lot of walking.

        Best foreign travel experience ever.
        Your Egypt Tours customized the perfect Egypt vacation for us. The personal attention of our guide, Ashraf, was five stars. We didn’t just sightsee, we were immersed in an experience that we will never forget. Highly recommend this agency and would trust them enough to send friends and family their way.

        3 night Nile cruise - Abu Sambal, Aswan and Luxor
        We had an amazing time visiting Egypt and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Your Egypt Tours. Mona and her team were very accommodating, helping us create our own bespoke itinerary for the highlights of Egypt. All communication was extremely prompt and organised from the outset, and Peter our Egyptologist guide was excellent - he is clearly passionate about Egyptian history and we felt extremely reassured that we were in good safe hands throughout the entire trip. The history and architecture in Egypt is truly remarkable, from the incredible Abu Simbel temple to a sunrise hot air balloon over Luxor, the team helped us create an absolutely memorable trip and we couldn't be more grateful! Thank you Your Egypt Tours. Really must emphasise how excellent our Egyptologist Peter was. Thanks again

        Excellent Tour Company
        We booked and planned a fantastic private 2 day excursion with Your Egypt Tours- Cairo and Luxor. Their professionalism and attention to detail planning the trip was great. Unfortunately, due to our last minute change in plans we were unable to go but will reschedule this great tour with YET at another time.

        Best tour company in Egypt!! (our opinion)
        Recently returned from a 10 day tour to Egypt with my Dad and it was AMAZING. Highly recommend checking a visit to Egypt off your bucket list!! Our wonderful experience in large part was thanks to Your Egypt Tours. From the moment we arrived at the Cairo airport and were greeted by Ahmed, to the moment Ahmed saw us back off at the airport, they gave us five star EXCEPTIONAL service and we were well cared for 100% of the time. Each day, we had a nice air conditioned private van, excellent driver (shout out to Johnny in Cairo and Ahmed in Luxor), and without doubt, some of THE BEST Egyptologists. Mamdouh gave us expert tours of Saqqara, Giza, the museums, the mosques, and old Cairo. He was funny, engaging, passionate about teaching us, and ensured we were well taken care of. Ashraf gave us incredible tours of Luxor, Aswan, and along our Nile Cruise stops. Ashraf is the MOST knowledgeable Egyptologist there is in all of Egypt, hands down. (Well, I didn't witness ALL the others in the country... but he has got to be tops, no doubt.) In addition to giving us excellent information about each site we visited, I daily asked him questions about every carving or painting or hieroglyph we came across, and 100% of the time, he knew the answer. I call him Mr. Google, because no matter what I asked, he had the answer. He was incredible. His potential is well beyond simply giving my Dad and myself tours... He should be teaching at University or be on documentaries. We felt extremely lucky to have him and I highly recommend you choose Your Egypt Tours for numerous reasons, top of which is Ash. Beyond that, Ash and Mamdouh are both genuinely great people. Mona is the person you communicate with in planning the trip, and in addition to the rave reviews I had read online about the company, my interactions with her were what sold me on booking with them. She was always prompt, professional, and extremely kind. The owner of the company checked in with us prior to the tour and mid-tour to make sure we were doing well. My Dad had to change his travel plans departing from Cairo, and their team was extremely kind in helping arrange a few more nights there and another transport to the airport. Tips: 1.) Initially I had booked a group tour with National Geographic, however could not find many reviews of them online and instead found outstanding reviews of this company and they offer private tours for less cost, so I changed. Our private tour allowed us to spend as much time as wanted in each site, and to adjust our itinerary as we pleased. It was perfect! 2.) Initially I was a bit worried that there was too much downtime in our itinerary, but it actually was needed! It was a bit exhausting visiting all the sites, so a bit of down time actually turned out nice. You can always add things while you are there if you are feeling spry/wanting more. 3.) Factor in a bit extra money for tips throughout the trip. There was quite a bit of tipping throughout, always at your own discretion and not obligatory. 4.) Egypt felt very safe and friendly throughout our stay. The tragic conflict between Hamas and Israel started while we were there on our tour, causing our family members back home to panic, but there in Egypt, we both felt very safe the entire time. I would encourage people to still go to Egypt (at least as things currently stand) as their country is safe and lovely. 5.) Prior to going, I read traveler blogs and reviews talking about aggressive salesmen constantly hounding foreigners. While yes, there are salespeople at all the tourist spots and they are desperate to make a living, my experience was that they were for the most part all respectful and good sports. Simply say "no thank you" (sometimes a few times) and it is all good. I also started giving in when realizing that often what they are selling costs only one dollar and it makes a huge difference to them. Overall, Your Egypt Tours was an OUTSTANDING company, I am extremely grateful for their kindness and exceptional service, and I would give them, and Egypt, my highest recommendation. The remains of Ancient Egypt are definitely worth seeing in person!

        Highly recommend Your Egypt Tours!
        My 2 friends and I spent 2 weeks on a tour arranged by Your Egypt Tours. We toured many sites in Cairo, Alexandria, Aswan and Upper Egypt, Luxor, and more. The company was superb - from the guides, drivers, incredible knowledge imparted to us all along, the good conversation and company they provided, and all the major and minor sites and activities. Part of our tour was a 4-day Nile cruise which was superb. All our accommodations were first-rate, and food they provided or recommended all wonderful. They were willing to work with us to customize the trip before arriving, and able to pivot when needed during the trip. I cannot say enough - well worth every minute!
