“Trip to Dendera & Abydos”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

We were exited for our trip to Dendera and Abydos this year. Having done this just a few years ago, on our own with just a book and in army convoy, we feld that we knew nothing much about the spirits of both places. We had to go back. Mac is not only a perfect guide with a great knowledge about ancient Egypt, he's also a splendid trip organiser, chef de cuisine and host in his country. I would never have understood the difficult magic of Abydos and Dendera without his archeological expertise. People, do not fool yourself, a walking encyclopedia and organizer like Mac are as much indispensable as a bottle of water.

“The best guide ever”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

We have visited Karnak and Luxor temple with Mac The Guide from Truly Egypt tours. It was a wonderful experience ! We were not only surprised by the professionalism of our guide who knew everythig in detail about both temples but also his capacity of entertaining us in a funny but intstructive way.
Whenever or whatever you want to visit in Egypt, you definitely should contact Mac The Guide form Truly Egypt tours who does make all your dreams come true.

“Best Tour ever! :)”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

We had this tour on 26th Sept 2013. Because we travelled to Egypt just after the crisis in August we had doubts if we get to Luxor or Cairo. But we got! :-)
We had to pay a little extra because of the tour became private (instead of bus tour) but I would pay it again for sure.
They sent us a limousine with a nice and professional driver (Hamad) and we had to travel much less as with a bus.
At Karnak Temple our private tour guide was waiting for us. He showed us around in the whole city and explained us all the sights (Karnak, Valley of Kings, Alabastrom, Colossi of Memnon, Hatshepsut Temple). Our private limousine took us everywhere. Our tour guide made huge efforts at all sights to take us in. Everything was closed at first. Everything is SAFE there, we had no problem!
So the organising was very PROFESSIONAL and I can strongly further recommend all of them. I hope we can get to Egypt once more! Nice work we liked everything! EGYPT IS SAFE!!!! DON'T BELIEVE IN MEDIA! TRAVEL THERE!!

“What more can I add? Awesome tour”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Like other reviewers who have been fortunate enough to have "Mac" as their tour guide I was totally impressed and entertained. We visited the Valley of Kings, the Hatshepsut temple complex, and boated across the river to Karnak. Very few tourists around (we were alone in Karnak!) due to political uncertainties. Mac's knowledge of Egypt's history under the Pharaohs, including culture and religion was unending and he easily transmitted this information to me. It's one thing for a guide to just give the facts and move along..it's another when the guide totally enjoys what he is doing, is outgoing and pleasant and..you combine this with knowledge. I absolutely recommend Mac, he is a rarity that ensures you will enjoy and remember your time in Egypt.

“Most memorable experience....”
Reviewed 4 May 2013

It was our first time in Egypt Luxor, and Mac made this an amazing experience and a cherished memory, he was able to cater tours within our tight schedule and above all his knowledge of Egyptian history is second to none, me and my partner found Mac to be an extremely honest and charming guide with great prices......plus the onboard humour was for free...... Fora truly genuine and amazing experience use Mac......
