    Worst vacation ever. The tour owner and his employees are all cheaters and tried to cheat us every single day during our trip. They put us at motel standard properties even though we had selected supreme package on . the properties are super old and run down and our rooms were not cleant or shower was not working. they gave us smoking rooms on different floors and never bothered to help us with our situation. At every hotel checkin process took for ever. For everything they wanted extra money. Never let us enjoy any of temples peacefully as they wanted to take us to stores of their choice to sell local products to us in order for them to earn commission on the sale. MOHAMMED the tour manager was not helpful and one of the most arrogant persons i have ever met in my life. Even though we were promised a free shuttle back to the airport the hotel was charging an arm and leg and we had to spend additional money on a ride to the airport. The tour company did not even apologize for their mistake in fact accused us that we were lazy. We are world travelers but never been cheated this badly on any of our worldly trips. Their tour guides dont speak english well enough for us to even understand what they were explaining to us. Tony one of their tour guides forced us to put up a good review on tripadvisor before he left. He also forced us to tip every person extra for no reason at all. PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY. We paid a hefty price for a lot of discomfort and inconveniences.Leaving Egypt with a bad taste and unhappy vacation. I repeat please DONT use saleh or mohammed services.

    Tour was decent. The additional tours ranged from $50-$200 usd if you travel solo. The tour guides are very aggressive with telling you how much to tip each day. One even texted me via whats app to tell me he's upset I didn't tip his driver. The Hilton hotel was 3star at best. The Nile boat had better rooms than the Hilton. If I could do it again I would piece together my own trip.

    My biggest disappointment of this tour is that I didn't have a chance to meet Mr. Salah. From the very beginning Mr. Salah was kind, considerate so accommodating. Even though this was a package Mr. Salah and his staff were always available to make sure the tour was exactly what we wanted. For example, our flight arrived at 1:30am by the time we got to our hotel it was nearly 3:00am but when we went to check in they couldn't find our reservation. I sent Mr. Salah a text that he answered right away and within just a few minutes we had our room.
    Mr. Salah and his team were flexible with the itinerary allowing us to add side trips and even cancel those side trips when other things came up.
    The guides were knowledgeable and well informed about all the places we visited and things we saw. Their explanations and detailed enhanced the trip and we left feeling that we didn't just see Egypt we got got to know the history, culture and the people. The guides were always right on time.
    It was an excellent trip.

    This was an EXCELLENT tour! Although we got off to a rough start with the original airport pick up in Cairo, everything from there was great! Mohammed was an informative and helpful guide in Cairo who takes great pics. We were handed off to Refaie and his drivers/boaters in Luxor thru Aswan. We participated in the extras that interested us only. The Nile River Cruise was great too. All cruise staff were very accommodating. Riding on the Sundeck caused locals to yell and wave as we passed by. All around good experience that I would highly recommend to anyone. Thanks again to Mohammed for taking great pics and teaching us helpful words and phrases and such. Thanks to Rafaei for being a great guide and educating us on things within the tour and on things that had nothing to do with the tour.

  • 26-Mar-2019

    From the beginning to the end, it was a good experience with Viator, they put us in a five star hotel, service in the cruise was beyond our expectations, all of the crew was extremely helpful, a variety of food and the guided tours were very informative and fun, we will definitely recommend them without a second thought.

    Very disappointed with the experience and how it was advertised. we booked a private tour with 5 stars hotels and cruise, but none of this was real.We stayed at the Hilton Ramses and the Le Passage Cairo hotels. The Hilton Ramses was a run-down hotel, with peeled wallpaper, rusty and disgusting showers, no minibar and a very dirty reception. This hotel seems as it had been built 20 years ago, and never received proper maintenance.The Le Passage, tough it was better that at the Hilton Ramses, it still was far from the 5 star quality advertised. We also had a weir situation, where we tried to use the pool, but the smell of kerosene coming from the nearby planes forced us back to our room.For the Cruise, we had the Grand Princess Nile, from Luxor to Aswan. Again, the cruise was advertised as 5 stars and it was far from it. We had a full board service, but the quality of the food was terrible. It was clear that the food was not cooked on board but only heated there. Also, there were some clear indications of the poor quality: we only had instant coffee for breakfast, during the whole trip there was no TV signal and the cruise had old furniture, dirty carpets and wore down towels, that were changed only if we actively asked for it. Finally, the tour was not private, and the optional trips were heavily overpriced. We shared the tour (Luxor to Aswan) with another couple. We had to accommodate our schedule to their optional excursions which lead to the schedule of the whole trip being very inconvenient. We wake up at 5 in the morning very day, even if after the excursion there was nothing else to do for the day. Also, most of the “must-visit” temples in Luxor and Aswan were pricey optionals. We blindly booked the tour, as we expected that Viator was going to give us at least all the major temples in Cairo, Luxor and Aswan. Instead of that, we had to pay overpriced rates to see the main attractions.On our trip to Abu Simbel we had very dangerous drivers that made things like overpassing other vans on curves and drive less than 50 centimetres away from the van in front of them just to save a couple of pounds in gas. Finally, we had a couple of shopping stops that were conveniently excluded from the description of the tour. We were taken to a papyrus shop, a perfume shop and a stone souvenir shop. It was clear that all the items in these places were a rip off.

    I booked this this tour for the end of August 2018/ beginning of September 2018. Mr Saleh sent me my itinerary. I made some changes after I booked the tour and he was very accommodating. I let him know that I was a solo female traveler and he assured me that he would put me with his best guides and that I would be safe.

    The guide that met me at the airport was very helpful, I arrived late at night but I think I was able to get through Customs and security much quicker having him take care of everything.

    My Cairo guide Sobhi and driver were waiting for me outside the airport and took me to my hotel. My guide told me about the city on our drive. He got me checked-into the hotel and went over my itinerary and let me know what other tours I could add-on.

    Sobhi was very nice and full of knowledge he has a formal education in Egyptology. He took great care of me and checked with me often on what I would and would not like to do during the tours as well as how long I would like to spend on each site/ activity which is one of the reasons I like traveling solo, I'm on my own schedule for the most part. In Cairo I saw the pyramids, the Cairo Museum and did an evening walking tour of Old Cairo with dinner.

    My airport guide, driver and guide for Luxor/Aswan Reg were all also, nice and accommodating. In Luxor I saw the Luxor and Karnack temple, and rode a horse carriage through town. While Cairo is a very large city, Luxor is small and more intimate.

    Also while in Luxor I did the sunrise hot air balloon ride that had views of the Nile, Hatshepsuts Temple, Valley of the Queens and Colssi of Memnon. I HIGHLY recommend this experience! After the hot air balloon ride we were able to get to Hatshepsuts Temple before everyone else about 7am which made for an amazing photo opportunity. This site was also a highlight for me.

    From there we went to the Valley of the Kings where your ticket allows you to tour 3 tombs of your choice my guide recommended the 3 I should see. This was another very cool and impressive site.

    I also saw the temples of Edfu and Kom Ombo. My stomach got upset during the trip so my guide took me to a pharmacy and helped get medicine. He also, checked regularly to see how I was feeling.

    In Awswan I did the tour out to Abu Simble about a 3 hour drive each way and took a boat from Aswan to the Nubian Village another highly recommended tour. The only sight I was underwhelmed with was the Asawn Dam, I didnt think it was worth paying anything to see. That could be because I live near a large dam Hoover Dam but It's something I would recommend skipping. I chose to skip the Unfinished Obelisk.

    My guides took me too an oil shop, papyrus shop and an alabaster shop. At each location they show you how the items are made and give you the opportunity to buy something. If you don't want to buy anything or any more than what you have choose, just tell them no, thank you.

    My Cairo Guide checked-in on me on occasion after I left Cairo and he as well as my Luxor/Aswan guide and Mr Saleh all checked-on me my last days before flying home which I appreciated.

    I went with the 5-star hotel option which I recommend. The ship was not as nice as the hotels and they allow smoking inside the ship, the smell would travel into my room. Please note that you have to pay for wifi on the ship if you do not have a phone plan that works in Egypt.

    I felt safe with my guides, they were my eyes and ears. They also told me how to interact with others and who/what I should avoid. The country takes security at the airports and tourists sites very seriously. There are metal detectors and armed guards at all the attractions.

    With all that said, I would recommend this company and would book them again if I ever return to Egypt!

    P.S. The guides are great at taking photos for you

    I can't say enough about one of the most fantastic trips I've ever had in my life!!!! There were a few things I'd like to change, things that I'd do differently--but the trip, as designed by the companies Viator and Explore Plus Holidays was exceptional. Everything I needed was right at my fingertips and the care taken to ensure my complete comfort and whim was handled with the utmost precision. This is the company I would recommend, in a heartbeat, to provide the most amazing trip possible to Egypt.

    When I go back, I'm starting with the fine folks of Explore Plus Holidays. The guides, Ibrahim and Ragab, worked so hard to make sure every aspect of the tour exceeded my expectations. And, they succeeded. Thank you!!! And the drivers, Joseph and I can't remember their names, kept us safe and out of roadside dangers!!!

    I chose this company on a guess. Viator had done a decent job for me before, so I took a chance and tried them again. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I shall trust you, again, for my next trip. This was an amazing experience.

    My one suggestion would be to include entrance fees into the price. I really felt nickled and dimed TO DEATH!!!!! Give me one set price--I'd pay happily! But having to fork out fee after fee after fee was the MOST disappointing aspect of the entire trip. I understand the reason--but, folks, I'd rather pay those fees up front than have to pull my wallet out every single time I wanted to see something important. I know you warned us up front that entrance fees are not included, but half-way through the tour, I was ready to give over my first-born just to skip the part of having to pay yet ANOTHER entrance fee.

    If you want to see Egypt--in the best possible way--go with these folks!!!

  • 06-Aug-2018

    The tour offers just accommodation and not even always food. Everything else is extra: All temple entrances, tips (They insist a bit too much on that) etc. But the optional tours are just totally overpriced, basically I spent more money for that than for the whole tour. The knowledge of the guides was ok, but not overwhelming; a few times they could not answer my questions, or even gave me wrong info.

  • 08-Jul-2018

    I booked this tour, and immediately Mr. Salah confirmed on Whatsapp the details of my trip, answered quickly all my messages, and sent pictures and names of representatives at Cairo airport and guide. After the arrival, inside the airport, Mr. Hedra was waiting for me, helped with the visa, filled the form, no line, and carried my luggage, we went with the driver until Mr. Sobhi, the guide in Cairo, joined and while crossing the City to Giza explained a lot about his country and culture. The tour to the Pyramids was like a dream, he was explaining to me, considering my previous knowledge, and cared about everything during my stay. At Cairo Museum he showed details that i could never learn without his help. In Asswan, outside the airport, Mr. Ahmed was waiting. We visited the Dam, the unfinished Obelisk, and the next morning, very early, with a kind driver, we traveled 300 km to Abu Simbel. That was incredible! And 300 km back to Aswan where the Nile cruise started. All the tour I was asked if everything was ok, and that makes me feel very comfortable. In Edfu he told the driver that he should be very careful and that was very nice, because I was afraid of the horses running fast, that could be dangerous especially due to my sight retina problems. It was a pleasant trip. In Luxor he was the best guide I could expect, his family is from Luxor, and he explained not only the temples, sculptures, monuments, and all the precious treasures everybody can see: he also talked about his family, culture, social rules, habits. We had interesting conversations in different languages also Russian, and different subjects incl. Football World Cup. I really spent a wonderful time in Egypt, both guides speak perfect English and are great photographers: they know exactly where I should stand in each place, what is very important for a solo traveler, who has to ask others, not always experts, or just take selfies what is more difficult because of the sun... Now i keep all those memories, and share them with family and friends as Señora Travels. Thank you for this wonderful week, my first time in Egypt.
