I used this company to take my family on a day tour of Giza, the pyramids and the bizarre.
The guide Yasser and driver Mimo provided us with everything we needed to know, arranged us a camel ride and kept bringing us cold water.
My young son was treated like a king by them and they advised us what the street dealers were offering souvenirs for.
Also our flight was changed by the airline so they called the transfer company for us and changed the time.
I plan to visit Luxor next and would be very happy to use this company again then.

Being a sceptical couple who are not easily impressed, we would thoroughly recommend using Egypt Portal Tours for booking a day trip to Cairo. As a rule we generally would not book something until we have seen hard evidence. However having read the reviews on Trip Advisor about this Company we decided to take the plunge! Communication before we arrived in Egypt was 10/10 too.

Well, what a fantastic day with Ahmed (our tour guide) and Allie (our driver for the day). We flew up to Cairo and landed at 0730, where Ahmed (with a huge smile on his face) met us at the Arrivals Hall. He whisked us out of the building and a short walk to the minibus where we met Allie, our driver. Also a very pleasant chap and great driver too.

As the excitement built for the day ahead we knew we had made the right choice. Ahmed had studied for his qualification as a Tour Guide and boy did he know his Egyptology!


1. Tour of Downtown Cairo on foot
2. Egyptian Museum
3. Boat Trip along the River Nile
4. Lunch on the Nile River bank
5. Papyrus Institute
6. Giza Pyramids
7. Sphinx
8. Scents & Oils shop

A non stop day with Ahmed stopping on the way back at the Airport to stock us up with fruit and drinks. A truly wonderful man and it was our pleasure having him guide us around Cairo. Thank you for one of the best memories we now have.

We recently went on a day trip to Luxor from Hurgunda with Egypt Portal Tours. I can't recommend them enough.

Our driver arrived on time (5:00 am) start and we were soon on our way. We were met in Luxor by Muhammad who proved to be incredibly knowledgable on all things Egyptian.

First stop was Valley of the Kings. Word of warning is that they do not let your guide in to the tombs with you so you will be hasseled by the guards for money when they try to show the tombs to you. Best to ignore them as best as you can. Then on to an alabaster workshop. Entertaining!

By the time we got to the Temple of Hatspepsut the temperature was really starting to soar. Really impressive sight though.

Following a stop at the Colossi of Memnon, a felucca ride to lunch and a horse and carriage ride we arrived at Karnak. The temperature by this point was immense. We moved from shaded spot to shaded spot but fully enjoyed the experience.

We were then so grateful for the air conditioning in the car for the trip back. On the way back we pasted one of the hotel bus trips broken down by the side of the road. Once again we were glad we had decided to book a private tour. If we went again I would pick a different time of year to try and avoid some of the heat.

It's definitely worth booking a private tour before you go and I can really recommend Egypt Portal Tours. It only costs a bit more than the hotel trips and is much more personal.

We were staying in El Gouna and decided to do a boat trip... A group trip was around £30 per person, all day with lunch and transfers. As it was our first we were nervous about travel and if you change your mind once at sea you cannot turn 30 others around for you!!
I googled private tours and found Egypt Tours Portal, the service was exceptional from start to finish, and under sold on the website!
I emailed on Tuesday afternoon, reply within an hour, further communication back and forth with extensive questions went on until midnight, they continued to reply! They offered a private boat, lunch and guide for £55 per person! Bargain, 4 of us in our on boat!! I would have expected to pay around £500 pounds for a full day charter and lunch/soft drinks!

It all seemed to good to be true!! I even asked if it was (politely of course). Private transfer was there waiting at the villa 745am, arrived at the dock, on to our private boat large enough for 20! A safety briefing from Greshan was friendly (excellent English) and good sense of humour! The boat was in great condition! 3 crew including the guide!!

We saw wild dolphin, rays, lion fish and loads more!........ Thank you so much for arranging an amazing trip. Ages in the party, 30-55.

Once we returned the driver took us back and a phone call received from the tour company checking that it was everything we hoped for!! It really was! And worth every penny! May I add, no money was taken until arrival back at the villa...... Not even a mention of money!

This company is professional, helpful and will answer questions, the website could benefit from greater insight and information, but ask questions and you will get answers!

Overall the best day of our holiday, not the cheapest way to do it! But by far the best true value for money! Enjoyment of all the others, more flexible program, no delay for others and Greshan was the best guide we could have hoped!

Thank you to the crew and Egypt Tours Portal for making this happen in less than 48 hours! Fantastic! Will use again!! And recommend!
