    We took an 7-night tour of Cairo, Aswan & Luxor that included a Nile river cruise. Our tour planner Leila was not only helpful prior to purchasing, but also remained nicely attentive during our tour to ensure everything was as we wished. For the Cairo portion we had the jolly Mohammed Atteya who was an excellent guide of Egyptology & the city, steering us knowledgeably through the various attractions (including which ones to skip). Together with his driver Samir we felt safe & in the best of hands at all times. The Southern part of our journey was conducted by a different tour guide Ahmed Sedik. Ahmed’s style was more formal, but equally competent and he provided us a wealth of information along the various Nile stops & mini-tours. The sites during our trip in March 2022 did not seem overcrowded, but even so we really appreciated the ‘private’ nature of the tour, by not having to wait for group activities and being allowed to take all the time we wanted at any stop. As things get busier in the country, this service will become even more valuable. Both tour guides were also terrific photographers, enabling us to have great photo memories from our trip. I must also mention Mr. Yasser Samiee who met us each time at Cairo airport and swiftly took us through the process/bureaucracy, which was a very nice touch. We are very fortunate to be able to travel to many places in the world regularly, but shall not hesitate to recommend this tour company (Odynovo and their personnel) to friends, colleagues & family to help plan their trips to the splendor that awaits at Egypt’s historical sites – bravo!

    As a world traveler I had waited many years to adventure to Egypt. I wanted to make sure I got a great tour guide for Cairo and surrounding areas. I was very fortunate to find Moh!!!! His English is very strong which is critical to ensure maximum benefit of each tour. He was extremely knowledgeable in all the places we visited…. The pyramids, sphinx, Egyptian civilization museum, Saqqara, Memphis, Old Cairo city tour/bazaar to name some of them. I highly recommend anyone who wants deep understanding of the historical context for each site we visited to obtain Moh as your specialty guide!

    Everything went very well as promised. Excellent guidance by Rocky and Mohammed, both with great knowledge and commitment to give us a great experience. We recommend this tour and are already looking forward to a next visit. Johan & Patrick.

    We had a great time on the cruise and with our tour guide Rockey. He sailing with us from Luxor to Aswan 4 nights. He was very knowledgeable, kind,. He communicated the plan to us and made sure we were comfortable with our tours and itinerary. He always gave us great tips for each of the places we visited. He was so patient never rushed. Rockey also arranged a covid test for us which was very convenient. The test was taken in the cruise ship and we didn’t have to go to the hospital. We highly recommend Explore Plus Holidays with our guide Rockey.

    We had the best tour guide ever! (Mo Sobhi). He was amazing. Very upbeat, knowledgeable and welcoming. He made me and my husband so happy and safe were well taken care of during the tour. He was so patient even when we were taking much longer than expected at the monuments. Best parts of this tour was Karnak temple and Abu Simbel, honestly 1. The pyramids/camel ride. We fly to ship was amazing and clean, they – mean explore plus – chose new ship sailing from Luxor to Aswan, very polite staff.

    The narration of the historical facts by Mr Mohammed, our tour guide made our trip to Aswan and Luxor informative and enjoyable. He took personal care of not only the sight seeing but also our stay and other arrangements.

    I went with my 85 year old dad, who’d always dreamed of visiting Egypt. The whole experience was incredible, had no idea you could cram so much into such a short space of time. We even saw a lot more than we were expecting! Every part of the trip was planned meticulously and attention to detail was 2nd to none, from being greeted at the airport, help through customs, money exchange and even SIM card, to looking after us every step of the way. Our guide Refaye, was very knowledgeable and very helpful. He made sure we were at the right place at the right time, without being pushy. He was also very patient when a problem arose and made sure it was all smoothed out. The transportation was very good and the food on the cruise was varied and delicious, even well catered for me (vegan) Obviously the sites were the highlight, but the help from Refaye meant it was all easy going and he kept the many hawkers away from us. This was definately a holiday of a lifetime, and Explore plus holidays made it a trip we’ll never forget. And fantastic value for money. I have already recommended this trip to my friends I hope all the people who looked after us are well and copying through this awful time.

    I chose this operatior Explore Plus then communicated with Mr. salah or saleh, He was so friendly response within minutes explore what I always asked him. Salah sir or Explore provided us with extremely knowledgeable and professional tour guides. We had a personalized tour & learned much more than expected about ancient Egypt. Their guide & driver provided a comfortable vehicle. It was a flexible schedule we changed as our adrenalin order us hehehehehehe so they adapted easily to changes during the day. Our teenaged kids loved the tour guide and found Egyptian history to be a lot of fun. Guide first day advised us how will pay for every minute tipping, we prepared small current with us, little poor but nice people always smile. Thank you history you let us enjoy with Egyptian Pharaohs

    What an amazing tour ! We had such a wonderful week in Egypt and what made it so great was our tour guide, his name Mohamed but we called him Mo like Salah. All time with big smile he greeted us. We felt so welcomed. He was so knowledgeable, so helpful and kind ! We explored lot of Egypt, the pyramids, the Sphinx, beautiful perfumes and oils, and papyrus. Thanks for such a great two Cairo days! Highly recommended - best tour guide and tour company!
