    Well amazing trip. Very well organised. 9 days of amazing fun. From the time I arrived at the airport till the end.

    We were 2 people and this was was a private tour with dedicated guides, clean sedan cars and awesome food.

    The Nile cruise was very nice, amazing buffet spreads, clean cabins. The tickets to all major tourist places were paid for - to the extent that I wanted to skip a few on the last days as I had already had my dose of temple visits. The train was a great experime as well. Our guide in Cairo for the first 3 days Mustafa was amazing, very knowledgable and extremely friendly.

    Aymen our guide in Aswan and Luxor was bad. He was trying to just rush things and wanted us to wrap up a day in advance as he was to take care of another tour the next day. Then I realised that he was a free lancer and not from the company.

    Worst part was before the tour. The company (Bassem) takes 5 days to respond to a query. After booking the tour well in advance, we were asked to pay 25% more money on arrival after we had paid in full at vaitor at the start. Extremely unprofessional on part of the company let’s expore Egypt.

    So while the tour and the company guides are amazing, the communication before the start has to be proactive and they need to be more responsive, and asking folks to pay more on arrival, really ? Are you not supposed to keep your rates updated on and even if u did not why ask customers 20 days after they’ve made the booking.

    Initial communication before the trip was so so. But once in Egypt the communication was better.
    The 9 day tour of Egypt that included a visit to the Giza Piramids, Egyptian Museum, Numerous temples including the Valley of the Kings, a 4 day River Nile Cruise was spectacular! This was a fantastic tour. Our guide Ahmed El Sayed in cairo and Sadoon in Luxor were good at sharing their knowledge of the history of Egypt with us. We also able to add a day trip to Alexandria on the last day as our flight was leaving late on that day.

    We chose this tour because it was the most bang for our buck, covering all the main attractions we wanted to see with as little expense as possible. We were warned about the quality of "4 and 5 star" accomodations in Egypt that they wouldn't be up to the standards of what an American's opinion of 5 stars are, but I never felt like we weren't getting some of the best accomodations out there (and I don't even mean for what we paid). There were a few places including the Nile river cruise boat where the beds were 2 twin beds that were pushed together that weren't ideal for a couple traveling together, but that was probably the worst of it. Let's Explore Egypt was a phenomenal company to tour with and their personal tour guides for our visits made it an even better experience. Ahmed The Great was so awesome and fun and all their guides were very knowledgeable! Outside of some of the delicious local restaurants these guides took us to, some of my favorite meals were experienced on the cruise. Don't be fooled though, the boat is not as amazing as it appears on their websites. We stayed on the "Sarah" where the "gym" consisted of 3 pieces of equipment with no power just hanging out on the top deck of the boat. My observations tell me these boats are all VERY similar, but where the boat lacked in gym equipment, it made up for in friendly staff, where they rolled our towels into a new animal shape wearing our hats every day. Let's Explore Egypt extended our tour to give us an extra day in Alexandria (for a fee after we inquired about this city), but the following day after all our tours were over and done with, they went out of their way to drive us to the airport. Every day they provided bottled water which was always much appreciated and needed, but there wasn't always WiFi as they claimed during the tour. Still, overall, an amazing trip for the price, definitely recommended!
