A dream trip!!

Let me begin with my hesitation to take this tour. I would like to mention that I was in the beginning a little skeptical of taking a private tour from Egypt as I honestly thought that it wasn’t too safe as I had read somethings earlier abt safety from a few friends. However when I actually did my research, i realised that I can do this trip privately maybe with no problems.
When I was in my flight i was honestly a little scared because what my friends had told me was still ringing in my head although the gut feeling i had was that it will all be fine.
To my surprise this country is probably safer than any other country u might visit!!! This is for 2 reasons:
1) Egyptians are extremely lovely people and hospitality is in their blood
2) Egypt has a special police force for Tourists!! They will always greet you with a smile and u will be welcomed with any of your concerns.

I am yet to visit a country that can shower so much of love on you. On top of that if you are an Indian, you will be treated as one amongst them because Egyptians love Indians way too much. Not that they don’t love other people. I realised that when I saw a few Egyptian teen girls and boys wanting to take pictures with my mom and wife just because my mom had a Bindi on her forehead. That’s how they knew we are Indians. It is an experience by itself to see this kind of bonding which is so rare and beautiful.

I might have exchanged atleast 40 mails discussing my concerns with the tour operator of Egypt Tours Portal and he answered back every single query i had. A special thanks to him for all the patience he showed.
He incorporated the tour very beautifully to fit everything that i wanted to see and cover. Also all the restaurants which were chosen for lunch options were really nice with a lovely surprise of Dinner cruise and the Alexandria seaside lunch by the Mediterranean sea.
I have to mention that the Hurghada all inclusive experience was so much of fun and exciting!!! Thank you again for the selection of the lovely hotels. The entire tour organised by Egypt Tours portal was extremely professional and they were very punctual with the timings which is the key for a tour to be successful in Egypt as there is so much to see but all the places close down by 5. So its important to start early.
Now coming to the tour, we had 2 tour guides in the entire trip for different areas. And trust me when I say this, If you have an amazing tour guide in Egypt, you have an amazing trip!!
Let me also tell you that there are atleast 90% of people with the names of Mohamed and Mahmoud. So i would like to mention my tour guides with their full names so that you could locate them more conveniently.
Once we landed at Cairo, we were so happy to see a person waiting for us with our name on a slate. Once we were helped with our passport formalities, we were greeted by Mohamed Elshemei from Egypt Tours Portal at the Airport. The moment I met him i just knew this is going to be a great trip. He was extremely kind and sweet. We reached Cairo at 6 in the morning. We were given a complimentary surprise by Mohamed as he got us some amazing Hot Fresh Falafel which just added a lovely beginning to our trip in this beautiful country.
Mohamed Elshemei was our tour guide in Cairo and in Alexandria. He made every extra effort to make sure we were comfortable.
He was extremely well informed with great study of egyptology and his ability to be loud and clear made an extremely lovely impact on our experience of getting all that vital information on every thing that we saw. Especially in the Cairo Museum if you dont have a good guide, its like seeing a mere exhibition of statues and objects.
Mohamed truly stood out as one of the best guides I have ever toured with and his amazing ability to grab people’s mind was so evident when I observed at a couple of places that people were sometimes listening to him rather then paying attention to their own tour guides!!
Cairo can get really bad with traffic jams. Ali was our driver in Cairo and Alexandria. He was extremely patient with our timings and he was like a silent soldier who was always there by our side to assist us.

Coming to the part 2 of our tour. Our next zone was from Aswan to Luxor. We had a flight from Cairo to Aswan from where we were to take our 5 star nile cruise. As we reached Aswan, we had some one lovely waiting for us there. He came up to us and said “Hi, I am the Egyptian Tom Cruz”. This was Mahmoud Hasan Ali. Our second tour guide who was with us for 5 days from Aswan to Luxor. He was such a lovely person that within a days time we felt we were not 4 of us travelling as a family but we were rather 5 of us travelling as a family. There was an instant connect he had with my family and he became a part of us. Mahmoud had a lovely ability of being serious and funny at the same time to lighten the atmosphere as continuous serious guiding can get monotonous sometimes as there is so much of information to gather and know in Luxor, kom ombo, edfu, karnak, abu simbel. Hence Mahmoud was the perfect guide for this period. He was very well informed and explained to us all the possible details of the places we visited.
He was so connected to us that he called my dad Pappa and my mom mamma like the way i call them. He always helped my parents with holding their hands when ever they had difficulties in walking and needed help. He was just amazing.
When we parted we really felt that we were leaving behind a part of our family back in Egypt.

Way Beyond Expectations

Wow, where do I start?

Egypt was ever so much more than expected. I was traveling with a young acting group of 40 – 50 year olds. We wanted an adventurous and active tour which we got with this tour company.

Ahmed Galal was our guide from Aswan to Luxor (his home town). He is very passionate about relaying the 5,000 year old Egyptian history and answering each and every question with enthusiasm. He ended up taking us personally to all the sites as we all toured well together. I would ask for him when planning your trip.

Surprises each day for us….

A hot air balloon ride over and down the Nile

Camel ride amongst the great Pyramids

Valley of the Kings

Perfume and Alabaster Factory

Nile River Cruise
