Great things people are saying...

Hi The whole trip was amazing ! It being the first time oversees i don't think it could of been much better. We never felt threatened or afraid Many people here say I cant believe you went there the way things are we told them about the extra security that is all over and we never were treated with anything but respect. The guides were informative funny and friendly and helpful you pick wonderful people We appreciated the things that the ask-Aladdin and the Legacy crew did for our anniversary. The food, sites, temples and all were overwhelming. I know tourism is down but it was nice not having the crowds at the sites so we could enjoy them more. My wife says she is ready to go BACK.

Hi Heba Thank you so much for a memorable trip. All the arrangements were great and we had a fantastic time. Ramadan, Khaled (Cairo) and Bassem were very helpful. They are great assets to your company. Do give them our regards and thank them once again for their assistance on our vacation. You have a beautiful country. I sincerely wish that all the troubles get resolved and Egypt gets the kind of tourists the country truly deserves. I also wanted to thank you for all your help over the last few months. It has been a wonderful experience working with you. There is only one thing that I wanted to highlight to you. The guide on the cruise, Mostafa was a little pushy went it came to tipping. We understand tipping is an important aspect, however, it is also up to our discretion. Mostafa kept pushing us to give more tips to the drivers and would constantly negotiate for them. Although we did put our foot down, this is something that we did not appreciate and it got a little irritating towards the end. He pushed us to give him his tip on the second last night and on the final day, after our trip to the Temple of Philae, he sort of abandoned us and went off with another guest. We also understand that Mostafa is one person and not a reflection on the company. The majority of people we met in Egypt have been very warm, welcoming and we hope to return to Egypt in the coming years. Also, do share a list of countries where your company operates or may have an associate network. Whenever we travel abroad again, we would like to travel with Ask Aladdin/ Egypt Travel Experts or one of your partner companies. On behalf of my husband and me, thanks once again, Heba. It has been a pleasure interacting with you. We would be happy to share a testimonial for your website, if you happen to need one. Best Ritika

Dear All I would like to let you know that our tour guides in Cairo, Ramadan and Bassam, our driver ahmed and our guides in Luxor Mohammed, the driver were all great. They did an excellent job. I will surely recommend the tour company to friends and family. As for the movenpick hotel in Cairo, it would be good to give people the option for the new tower instead of the old one. Ramadan was extremely helpful in securing our luggage and we really appreciate it.

Dear Ask aladdin Team I just wanted to say that Ask Aladdin was amazing. The setup of our tours was simple. Your website was easy and your travel experts were amazing. A few key things our family wanted to share with you: (1) Ramadan who met us at the airport and was our travel transporter was fabulous. He was professional, buttoned up, easy to talk to and gave us complete confidence in his knowledge and professionalism. He helped answer any questions we had. We knew we could just turn over our vacation transportation to him. (2) Amira, she was also open, honest, interesting, knowledgeable, approachable. She was a “real” person who we were able to bond with her and expand our experience and knowledge of Egypt. We shared many laughs and experiences. (3) Ahmed, from Luxor to Aswan. Well our family adopted him into our family. What more can I say. My whole family fell in love with Ahmed. He was sincere, trustworthy, protective, knowledgeable, honest, caring, sharing, FUN! We actually experienced a true love and respect with someone in 4 days that our family will always cherish. Ahmed was the highlight of our travel. It was his beautiful personality that turned a great experience into a memorable event and bonding for our family with another person. I have told many of my colleagues, friends and family about our trip. I have said that we have gone many places in our lives but the experience we had in Egypt was unforgettable and the best we ever had. My husband is very picky about what he considers exceptional, and professional service. He was amazed and constantly said “Oh my gosh this experience is amazing….I have never experienced such top notch professionalism and personalization. So you have our loyalty and support and wish you all the best and most successful future for your company and your employees. As stated, Ramadan, Amira, and Ahmed are gems. Protect them….they are true assets to you and your country.

Dear Egypt travel Experts, We had an absolutely fabulous time on our trip. All of the arrangements exceeded our expectations. We were met at every airport and tour by staff who then took care of all arrangements for transportation and tickets. Ayman was excellent in Cairo. George was so helpful in getting us to and from the airports and hotels, Jackie was very knowledgeable and Arena In Aswan (unsure how to spell her name) was good, her English was just a bit difficult to understand. Ben stopped by our cruise ship to introduce himself and advise us as to time he would be picking us up the next day for our flight to Abu-Simbel and the tour guide at Abu-Simbel was also very good. I must admit I was a bit hesitant with the initial wire transfer for the deposit as we were just dealing through a web site. We are so used to using credit cards it seems a more convenient way to us. Please extend our thanks and warmest regards to all the staff who were involved in our tours. You may use me as a reference if you wish for future clients.

Hello I just wanted to touch base now that my trip is over. I had an incredible two weeks and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Both of my guides, Bessam and Edam were terrific and went above and beyond to make my time in Egypt special and engaging. Thank you so much for everything and helping me realize a lifelong dream!

Hi, I absolutely loved my trip to Egypt and had an amazing journey! If life is all about expectations, the tour package and service that I received from “Ask Aladdin” / “Oriental Tours Egypt” totally exceeded my expectations! They made my “trip of a lifetime” truly the dream vacation that I had fantasized about for years! I booked the “All of Egypt” tour and got to see so much more of Egypt than most Egyptians. As I was a bit afraid of the political climate, terrorism, and general anti-American sentiments overseas, I booked the “5 Star” package to ensure that I’d be treated as well as possible. As a high school history teacher, this is never the way I travel. Yet, “Holy Smokes” and WOW, in my mind these were at least “5 Star” hotels that I think deserve 7 or 8 Stars on a 5 Star scale! ALL of the hotels I stayed in were fabulous! They were all so elegant, comfortable, and in the BEST LOCATIONS! In Cairo, I was basically a block away from Tahrir Square and while I expected a “Nile View” room, I wasn’t expecting almost the ability to jump off of my patio into the Nile. It was a spectacular room with a beautiful view of Cairo Tower! For 3 nights, I was put up in Mena House in Cairo. I was told I would have a “Pyramids View” room, but never imagined that my hotel would be at the base of the Giza Pyramids, easily within walking distance, and have so much celebrated history – as in the location of the WWII Cairo Conference between F.D.R., Winston Churchill, and Chiang Kai-Shek! You know you’re staying in a fancy place when the hotel offers tours of the facility! The staff at “Ask Aladdin” / “Oriental Tours Egypt” actually apologized that there was not a “5 Star” hotel in Abu Simble, but once again I was thoroughly impressed. I lodged in a lovely complex of cabins, with manicured gardens, swimming pools, with a patio view of Lake Nasser lapping right up to the property! In Aswan, my hotel was on an island in the middle of the Nile with ferry service running every 5 minutes to get you to the other bank. Incredible! The Nile cruise was “over the top” elegance! I had a beautiful stateroom which featured a spa, swimming pool, delicious food, and an in-cabin sauna and steam room built into the luxurious shower! Watching the peoples of Egypt, the numerous birds, and the occasional ancient temple glide by while sailing up the Nile is something that I LOVED and will always remember. In terms of safety, while I was afraid to cross the streets in Cairo as the traffic is congested and dangerously aggressive, I always felt secure in the hotels and on the tours that were booked on my behalf. Almost all of my hotels had dogs at the outside gates to sniff for any nefarious objects. They also featured very large staffs and a ton of security. Additionally, there was a huge abundance of police officers and military personnel at every location I visited. The thing that truly made my vacation so spectacular was my awesome guides! My favorite, who guided me around Cairo, Memphis, and the surrounding pyramids area was Sally Negm. ASK FOR SALLY! Not only was she incredibly knowledgeable and personally warm, I really appreciated the manner that she would present information! As a history teacher of 23 years, I was so impressed how Sally would offer various theories of the past and then ask me what I thought. In Ancient Egypt, not all is known, but Sally helped bring things to life for me and get me to think more deeply about things than I would have otherwise. She was so much fun and so helpful! Sally really went the “extra mile” to ensure that I loved Egypt and it worked! From giving me her cell phone number so that I could contact her for questions to taking me to the ideal shop to buy a doll for my niece, Sally was the PERFECT Tour Guide! I already miss her! I also really enjoyed my guide to Lower Egypt (in the North), Sally’s husband, Ahmed, though he told me that his friends call him “Mido”. Ahmed, who I always called “Mido”, was amazing at making me feel like a real Egyptian and exposing me to things and places that were not on my actual agenda. With Mido, I feel like I’ve made a good friend in Egypt. When one Coptic Monastery was closed on our trip from Cairo to Alexandria, he ensured that I got to see it on our return trip. After hearing that I wanted to try smoking a hookah, one night in Alexandria, Mido took me out with our driver Ali to drink tea and smoke a hookah at a local, non-touristy location where I felt like a local. Then, we drove up to the fort built on the site of the original Lighthouse of Alexandria just to “people watch” and see the beautifully lit fortress. It was especially enjoyable as the evening was packed with Egyptians crowding the streets and being so happy for their ability to eat after the sunset as it was during Ramadan – an Islamic month of fasting. On my last night in Cairo, as I really wasn’t hungry and wanted to see Cairo’s most famous coffee shop, El Fishawy, Mido got us a great table where I loved watching the people smoke hookahs as I drank tea and delicious mint lemonade. Mido is such a nice guy and worked so hard to ensure that I was having the best time that I could. In Upper Egypt, my guide was Ahmed (a different one than “Mido”). He was also great! At Abu Simble, he suggested that if I wanted to, he could meet me early to watch the sunrise in front of the temple of Ramses II. Not only did we get to watch a spectacular sunrise over Lake Nasser, due to our 5 AM arrival at the site, I had the entire Abu Simble complex to myself! We spent 2 hours there touring the incredible temples and the next tourists did not show up until after 7 AM when we were leaving! Ahmed also arranged for me to take a Hot Air Balloon ride over The Valley of the Queens and Luxor, again to watch the sunrise over the Nile. Not only did Ahmed work super hard to ensure my complete satisfaction, but he was also so knowledgeable about Egyptian history and all of the sites we visited. There were other tour guides on our Nile Cruise, but I hands down had the best. In thinking about swimming pools, I often like to be “the first person in and the last person out”. Well, that was Ahmed! We were always the first 2 in each temple or site and the last ones to leave. I learned so much from him and he went out of his way to offer me special treatment and amazing experiences. He even took me to a pharmacy to get some medicine when I needed some nose drops. Truly above and beyond the call of duty – just like Mido and Sally! I left Egypt 2 weeks ago and now am taking a class in Istanbul on Turkish History. I won’t be back home for another month. I only say this to illustrate how grateful I am to “Ask Aladdin” / “Oriental Tours Egypt” and all of my guides that I just couldn’t wait until I return home to the U.S.A. to “Thank them” and let them know how special I think all of them are and what a GREAT TIME I had in Egypt. I hope to return to Egypt sometime in the future and most assuredly, I will book my next Egyptian vacation with “Ask Aladdin” / “Oriental Tours Egypt”. I LOVE EGYPT AND HAD THE TIME OF MY LIFE !!!!! THANK YOU !!!!!! Most especially, THANK YOU SALLY, MIDO, AND AHMED !!!   Regards Steve Schmidt

Hi, I am responding for myself and for Adolfo Arias. I would like you to know that we enjoyed our trip to Egypt very much. from the moment we were picked up at the airport, we felt very welcomed. Our guide/greeter Ramadan was fantastic. He was extremely helpful with our luggage issues, as well as ensuring we were checked in at our hotel. He answered any questions we may have. Our driver was also very helpful. Once our tour started, Bassam was also helpful with contacting air france for our luggage and working with Ramadan to ensure we knew when we would have it. Bassam was extremely knowledgeable and answered any questions we had through out our tour. Ramadan took us to the train station and ensured we got on without any issues. I can't thank all 3 of them for all they did for us during out time in Cairo. Once we arrived for our next portion of the trip, Mohammed was our guide. Once again, i was very impressed with his knowledge, and helpfulness. He ensured we always had any questions answered and helped us when one of our members was ill. He is a great asset to your company. The driver that took us from Luxor to Hurghada was also very helpful(sorry not sure of his name). From Hurghada to Cairo, our driver once again was extremely helpful. I am thankful for your staff that ensured at all times that we were comfortable. I would definitely recommend them to anyone traveling. As for the Cairo hotel - the Movenpick, i was disappointed that we were not initially in the new tower. It would have been good to know that we would be in the old section. I think that it would be helpful to others staying there to be aware that there are 2 sections, and be given the option to choose. Once again, thank you for the services provided by your staff, it was a great trip!

Dear All I was going over travel agencies in Egypt and found one called Ask-Aladdin and me and my boyfriend are thinking of booking a Nile cruise with them in August this year. I was wondering if anyone here has had experience with this agency, and could verify the quality of their service. So far I have read many good reviews, but they are all pretty old (before 2013), so any new review would be very well appreciated.

Dear All When I decided to go back to Egypt for my 3rd time, I asked several companies for quotes. The most professional and attentive of these companies was Ask-Aladdin. I will totally recommend this company for future trips to the Middle East and Egypt. Their staff was very professional from the beginning to the End. Special thanks to my two guides, Ehab and Ala Al Sayed. They were knowledgeable and made me feel at home. During my two weeks I felt safe. I did a private tour of the country from Alexandria to Abu Simbel, 7 night Nile cruise on-board the Luxury Sonesta Moon Goddess (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED) and a night in the Desert and unforgettable experience. The Hotel selection, the tours and extra excursion were superb. Learned a lot this time since it was a private tour listening to the guides and been able to have a one to one conversation about everything in the country. Also my special thanks to the company Representative Ramadan, he was extremely helpful dealing with the Airport. Find the adventurer in you and visit Egypt. You will love the country, people and food as I do.

The trip was wonderful. We had a great time all around and each location and individual we worked with was somewhere between good and great. No bad experiences at all. we're telling everyone we know to book a trip to Egypt now! It really is unfortunate that so many people are missing out on a great experience because of those concerns. I'll definitely share my thoughts on everything. Please give me a couple of weeks to write that up and send it over.

Dear Ask aladdin Team My trip in Nov/Dec 2014 organized by Ask Aladdin was absolutely perfect. Every detail was wonderful - guides, drivers, agents, hotels, meals, sites, ticket, flights, cruise - everything. It exceeded all my expectations. It was luxurious and everyone treated us with kindness. I've told my friends that they must visit Egypt. And now is an excellant time - prices are good and crowds are thin. Egypt needs tourists and our dollars during this time. I'm grateful I was able to visit and won't hesitate to repeat this trip. I always felt safe. Our guides and driver and hotel staff were always attentive to security and our comfort and safety. I had absolutely no concern about my safety - if anything I felt over protected! I learned so much from our private guides - personable, interested and interesting themselves. Learning about the ancient sites, culture and history plus learning about life today in Egypt with all the changes underway. This was a dream come true trip for me - since I was a child I wanted to come to Egypt to see the pyramids and tombs and monuments. And be immersed in the history of such an amazing civilization. My trip could not have been better and I recommend Ask Aladdin without any hesitation. They worked with me to take a set 2 week package tour and customize it with side trips and rearranging to fit our schedule. They were professional and attentive. I've traveled all over the world and I say without pause that this trip was the most amazing, luxurious, immersive and memorable I've ever experienced.

Dear Ask aladdin Team Our trip to Egypt exceeded our expectations. From the very first e-mail we got from Noha, to the last escort for our departure at the airport by Ramadan, everyone went our of their way to make our trip pleasurable. At all times we felt safe and benefitted from the assistance and knowledge of our guides. We also greatly appreciated the upgrade to Mena House Hotel in Giza. We especially want to thank Ahmad in Cairo and Ahmed in Aswan and Luxor. We would recommend Ask Aladdin to others and look forward to returning to Egypt.

Ask Aladdin Team Our trip to Egypt was the highlight of our 2 month holiday . From the absolute beginning with our booking and the doubts we were having about coming to Egypt. We had nothing but 5 star treatment ! We loved every minute of our 8 days. Our drivers and guides were extremely nice and very professional. Ahmed was such a great person and we learnt so much from him. Also Mona in Cairo was amazing. Our accommodation was first class and we felt safe at all times. I cannot tell you how much we are glad we did not cancel our trip and feel sad about the lack of tourists visiting Egypt. This definitely benefited us though as there were no crowds anywhere. We have been telling everyone we talk to about our holiday in Egypt and have highly recommended dealing with Ask Aladdin Again I cannot thank you enough for your organization of our tour , we really did have the best time possible. There is not one thing that We could complain about. One day I would love to do it again. Thank you so much and I hope that the tourists start coming back to Egypt..

Dear Ask aladdin Team I have just spent 28 days touring Egypt and Jordan with Ask Aladdin,I was very happy with the 5 star quality of the tour for that length of time,compared to other tour companies who offer less for the same or more money. You can pick the day you want to begin to get the best airfare,and you have your own personal guide and driver for the tour,you are not with a group of up to 25 people with 1 guide,you have your own guide.When I meet a group tour,they were jealous that I had my own guide one on one. Compare what you get on other sites for more money and less time,and group tour vs.one on one.I felt like a VIP thanks to Ask Aladdin and Bassem.

Dear Bassem, Your firm's performance and that of your associated firm in Jordan was first rate. Everything you promised was delivered on time and your response to our problems at Iberotel Aswan was top notch. The guides you provided were all knowledgeable and spoke English well. I would grade them as follows: Omar-A+; Mohammed Assaf in Jordan-A+; Mona-A; and Mohammed in Aswan-B+. The first two mentioned grade higher because they were just slightly more in tune with our needs. We won't hesitate to recommend your firm to our friends and family.  Thanks again, W. Barrie Anderson

Dear Ask Aladdin Team My wife and I used Ask Aladdin to provide us a tour of Egypt. This group is very, very organized and they are incredibly friendly. Our itinerary was customized to our schedule and included exactly what we wanted to see. Our tour guide in Cairo, Shareen, was incredibly helpful and very informative. As was Mustafa, our tour guide in Aswan/Abu Simbel/Nile Cruise. Ask Aladdin made the trip so enjoyable, educational, fun, and safe. We would HIGHLY recommend using Ask Aladdin if you are planning to travel to Egypt.

Dear Ask Aladdin Team The trip was overall was good. Some specific areas for improvement are: Provide details of the schedule to customers not just the guide. There are many tips expected from luggage handling to taxis to guides and drivers and we were led to believe these were already included in the trip costs - so this needs to be clearer in the pre trip information. On the boat had to sit with the same people for the whole trip and there was no choice and a glass of clean water should be available with the meals without additional charge. On the last day the suitcases were taken and left on the road even when we said not to- my wife went with them and stayed in the hot sun until they were taken back to the boat. The kitchen staffs were very nice. The room servicing on the boat was very good and the people very nice. The booking service and email follow up was very good Thank you

01 Night in Cairo + 3 Nights Nile Cruise

Dear Ask Aladdin Team We've now completed our trip and were most impressed. We would like to acknowledge our Cairo airport liason, Ramadan Saber Eid Rajab. He went above and beyond what we feel a company agent is required to do. We were in the unfortunate situation of arriving in Cairo with no baggage. Ramadan made sure we had the proper paperwork filled out and that we would be reimbursed for the clothes we needed to purchase. We were only in Cairo for a day and a half and then on a flight to Luxor. While we were gone Ramadan dealt with baggage sevices and went to the store where we purchased our clothes and got an official receipt. Our tour guide neglected to make sure we received a proper receipt even though he knew of the situation. It was only through his perseverance with baggage claim services (and it wasn't easy) that we were able to leave Cairo knowing we will be reimbursed for our purchases. We feel that an employee who is such a people person and is so dedicated to seeing that their experience in a foreign country goes smoothly should be acknowledged by the people he reports to and the tour company that hired him. Our trip would not have been as successful if not for the impressive tour guide we had for the Nile Cruise, Ahmed Khalifa. He was able to impart on us his love for Egypt and Egyptian history without being overwhelming and in the process making us appreciate your country so much more. When our cruise was delayed by two days he still managed for us to see everything on our itinerary as well as several other excursions. We know this took a lot of his time and great organizational skills for everthing to go so smoothly for us, especially when we went on a felucca ride and the wind wouldn't co-operate. Thanks again to these two exceptional people and Egypt Ask Aladdin for the amazing time we had touring with your company. In hindsight, we wish we had chosen a longer tour.

The service I have received from you was wonderful, at all times I felt completely taken care of. Achmed is a great tourguide, very knowledgable and kind. I really feel like I have a good friend in Egypt, as he took very good care of me and even organised extra tours for things that I wanted to see, but that were not on my itinerary. The cruise itself was lovely, very relaxing and enjoyable. A smooth trip from start to finish.

I guess that was good for me but bad for the Egyptian the tourist industry. Thank you for all of your work that you have done in making our vacation very successful. I will have to send an email to Mr. Aladdin to let him know how wonderful all of the tour guides were and how well my trip was planned by your hard work.

We appreciated your guidance on our itinerary and thought that virtually all of the trip pulled together as one of our most enjoyable trips ever. The destinations and planning of the trip, much to Stuart's credit, was exceptional for its variety and breadth of what Egypt has to offer. The hotels were well chosen. We particularly appreciated your coordination of our guide, Ibrahim Morgan. His knowledge, passion for the job and participation in our trip was excellent. Our drivers, particularly Ahmed were super, punctual, tidy, safe and good natured. In all, I would highly endorse your efforts and your company and would be pleased to recommend them to others as may be travelling to Egypt.

03 Night at Cairo + 04 Nights Nile

Dear Ask Aladdin Team We (a couple in our 60's) just returned from a fabulous trip assisted by Ask Aladdin. We can say without hesitation that we could not have managed the logistics of travel to Egypt without their expert assistance. They were thoughtful, accommodating, flexible, friendly, and extremely helpful with everything from shepherding us through the Cairo airport to negotiating the indescribable Cairo traffic to making sure we got all our connections made to guiding us through the many museums, pyramids, tombs, and temples we had the opportunity to visit. We also thought it was risky to book with an unknown but we were reassured by many posts on this and other web sites. The decision to work with Ask Aladdin was absolutely the best decision we could have made. We wanted to do some snorkeling at Sharm el Sheikh, which was not part of their usual tour packages, and they created a package just for us. We stayed at 5 star hotels and often got upgrades to suites. The price was, we figured, actually less to work through Ask Aladdin rather than to book accommodations of this caliber on our own. Most meaningful to us, the young men who made arrangements, guided us, and drove us around are wonderful people; we had real conversations with them about major issues and came away with a much better understanding of the people who live in this part of the world. Bottom line: we would do it again in a flash, and we would not consider doing it without Ask Aladdin. We recommend them without reservation -- and suggest that you visit the Islamic Art Museum, which has just reopened after a seven-year-long renovation.

Dear Ask Aladdin Team Apologies for the delayed response, life gets very busy after returning from a trip as I am sure you appreciate. I would only be too happy to provide feedback on the trip as we had a wonderful time and have both been recommending you company to many of our friends and family. Even before we booked the trip Raouf was very prompt with his responses to my questions and very helpful with his answers and his customer service was part of the reason we chose your company. Walid who met us at the airport was again very helpful and explained out itinerary to us in great detail to confirm we had no questions or queries. He was also very good at checking in with us throughout the trip to make sure everything was adequate and we had no questions, this added a personal touch that made us still feel included even though it was a private tour. Super Sam our driver was indeed super and an excellent driver - by far your best driver and we will remember him always. All our guides where very informative, spoke excellent English and gave us all the required information without overloading us with facts and figures. We felt like we had adequate time to explore each location both with and without the guide and plenty of free time overall. All our hotels where excellent and for the most part accommodating when we requested a double room rather than a twin. The cruise on the Nile was amazing with a beautiful cabin onboard the boat, we where unaware of the optional extra to see Abu Simbel before returning to Cairo however that is partly our fault for not knowing or asking sooner. Overall we could not fault the tour and had a wonderful time, by far the most memorable and enjoyable tour we have ever been on and one which we will talk about for some time. I would have no hesitations recommending your company to anyone who asked and wish to thank you and your staff once again for making Egypt a truly memorable experience for us.

Dear Ask Aladdin Team just wish to thank you for arranging such a wonderful Egyptian and Jordan holiday for our small group of 4. From the time we arrived in Cairo and were met at the airport by Walid, to the time we left Jordan the organisation was fantastic, and exceptional value for money. The Egyptologist tour guides that you booked for our trip were absolutely wonderful and incredibly knowledgeable as you would expect. I must make special note of Ayman who not only guided us but also taught and challenged us to understand ancient Egyptian culture. The incorporation of lesser known antiquity sites, such as Abydos and Dandara temples were equally, and in some cases more spectacular the some of the more well known sites. Although every part of our holiday was a highlight, the trip down on the Nile on the Dahabeiya was absolutely wonderful. With only 3 cabins, all with private facilities, and 3 couples it was very intimate and peaceful. The crew were very respectful and unobtrusive, and we felt very spoilt by them as they were available to assist us 24 hours. We would often laze on the deck and watch the large cruisers sail by being very thankful that we were enjoying the tranquility of the dahabeiya. The hotels in both Egypt and Jordan were on the whole excellent, although if we did have any concerns they were very quickly rectified by you. Thank you again and I will definitely recommend you and your group to any others I know of who are planning a trip to Egypt. My husband and I are already discussing a return visit. It was also great to meet you on the Jordan leg of our holiday. Again, thank you so much

Dear Ask Aladdin Team Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful time in Egypt. I had fantastic experience and it was only possible because of the flexibility and arrangements your team made for us. The Egypt Splendor tour is a well-designed tour for travellers with only a week to spend in Egypt - not only were we able to see an great amount of sites that gave us a good appreciation of Egypt's history, but we didn't feel rushed in anyway or too physically drained during the tour. I think a large part of why the tour program was so great was the transfers between the cities (flying vs. train/bus) which cut alot of dead time out of our schedules, more time to rest and of course more time to enjoy the cities we were in. In addition, because this was a private tour (vs. a large tour bus company operator) we were able to enjoy the sites at a bit more of a leisurely pace - absorb all the history and take all the pictures we wanted without feeling rushed. Our first stop in Egypt was in Cairo and when we first got off the plane, the airport was pretty chaotic, but Raouf was there to greet us well before the customs reps and helped us quickly with our visas to usher us through customs without any problems or delays. From then on, until the time we left Egypt, I can say, we were very well taken care of by the representatives of your company. Your team was able to address any inquiries or requests quickly and efficiently and as well handled all the details (no matter how small) of our trip which alleviated any stress and helped to make our vacation more enjoyable. The tour guides were great - they were very informative and demonstrated a great deal of knowledge of the sites and your country. We were especially pleased with your flexibility for our travels to Abu Simbel - we had signed up for the optional day trip to Abu Simbel. When we had originally booked our trip, an air transfer was not possible to Abu Simbel as there were no flights available on that day, but we opted for a car service to Abu Simbel (3 hours car ride). We were originally scheduled to leave at 11am but the day we were suppose to go to Abu Simbel was Oct 22 - Ramesses II's alleged birthday - where it is only one of 2 days in the whole year where at sunrise (for only 30 minutes) the sun shines through the temple and illuminates the sculptures on the back wall. Since this occurs only 2 times out of the year and only at sunrise, we requested that we be able to see this - your team was very flexible in re-arranging our itinerary to help start our adventure at 12:30am to arrive at Abu Simbel at 4am - which gave us ample time to see the sunrise and we managed to get through the crowds and into the temple to see the natural phenomenon. This was truly an amazing experience and for those visitors to come, it is definitely something you should consider seeing if you are ever in Egypt on either Oct 22 or Feb 22nd. Despite the early hours of this day trip- both our driver and the tour guide provided great service to us added to an already memorable experience. We have had a great stay in your country and I am already day-dreaming of my next visit to Egypt - hopefully explore the Red Sea on another one of your tours. I would not hesitate in recommending your tours to anyone because of the level of professionalism and hospitality that you demonstrated throughout our trip. THANK YOU for a wonderful time in Egypt! - your company made it possible.

I cannot think of one thing to criticise. We did so much in our two weeks that we cannot pick out one thing that was the best; from Cairo and the Pyramids to the Philae temple and Luxor, from snorkelling in Hurghada to the catacombs of Alexandria. Our guides were brilliant- so many other people seemed to have problems with theirs but Ibrahim and Hassan were wonderful. We were only sorry that we had to fly home!

Majestic Egypt Tour Package

Dear Ask Aladdin Team We had a very memorable visit...one that was better than we could have ever expected. Our whole trip was seamless thanks to your wonderful associates. Our greeter, Mr. Magdi was wonderful. He was always on time and eager to assist in all transfers. We appreciated his leadership and his ability to answer any questions we had. He gladly took care of the details of the entire trip, for which we were very grateful. Our driver, Ashraf is undeniably the best driver in Egypt. We felt very safe and comfortable despite the crazy city traffic. We had many good drivers, but his talents and politeness stood out above the rest. He deserves a raise! Hesham, our tour guide for the pyramids and the museum may very well be the best tour guide we've ever had. He was extremely knowledgeable and very easy to understand due to his excellent and articulate English. He not only took time to describe everything we had questions about, he also explained the culture and other helpful and invaluable tips that we used throughout our trip. We were very pleased with the accommodations as well as the professionalism of the crew on the ship. They were very polite and accommodating throughout the cruise. Although we did not have a detailed itinerary of the planned excursions, the trip was very well coordinated. Our tour guide Kirolos was also very knowledgeable and approachable for questions. He took time to sit down with us and explain further if we had any questions. He was also helpful in changing our itinerary to insure that we would not miss out on the sites of Aswan as we were booked to visit Abu Simbel on that day. We were, however, a little confused once we got to Abu Simbel as we did not find our greeter nor know which tour bus to get on. Once we found a tour guide that took our cash, the excursion was smooth and enjoyable. On our final day in Aswan, we were pleased that Haidy was able to put together an excursion to Philae Temple and the High Dam. These sites were truly impressive and it was such a pleasure to have Inis as our guide. She was also very knowledgeable and talented in English. We would like to thank Haidy again for changing that excursion for us so that that it would not be missed because of our Abu Simbel excursion. Thank you for a wonderful trip. We will be pleased to recommend you to anyone who is interested in visiting Egypt.

Dear Ask Aladdin Team We had a wonderful trip and have been trying to email you to thank you, especially to Aladdin to tell him how much we appreciated being taken to dinner. Our children wanted to extend their thanks as well, they so enjoyed his company and the food. We are very sorry for the delayed return response, we've had hurricane warnings and many weather problems. As I have said, our land trip was wonderful, even amazing!!!. The food, the cruise, the hotels, everywhere was wonderful. We enjoyed everyone that we came in contact with, our guides, the drivers, Akmed was wonderful as well. We would like to make you aware of one problem regarding the diving centre in sharm. We were so excited to be in Egypt and especially looked forward to our dive. Because Aladdin is a diver, he will especially understand this. The dive companies equipment was bad. My wife had to use her secondary on her regulator because the primary was barely allowing air to release, when we hit cold spots her secondary would barely work, she refused to do a third dive which she would have loved to have done under normal circumstances, Our son's tank was leaking and he ran out of air prematurely on every dive after a certain pressure was reached, There should have been back up equipment, but I don't know that it would have worked properly either. My wife told them her concerns through out the day, she's a very experienced diver, but our guide continued to tell us everything was fine, meanwhile the equipment worker on the boat said our equipment should be thrown overboard because it was JUNK!!! Having rented equipment all over the world, when there is a problem it's addressed promptly, not brushed aside with an attitude that could easily put someone in jeopardy. With that being stated, we understand that the dives were out of your direct control. After watching and being impressed with both the equipment and the dive master at the hotel Concorde, we hope to come back and dive there one day. We have told everyone what a joy it was to work with your company and that it was a Vacation of a Life Time!!! One that we know our children will always remember as well. Thank you so much.

Dear Egypt travel Experts My name is, Lalita Daniel's wife. I was compelled to write to you as well to send many praises about your company, it's commitment to service, and the staff you employ. I know that generally when people write reviews about their vacations, it tends to be primarily based on negative experiences. I think I speak for my family when I say that the only negative part of our vacation was the fact that it had to come to an end! All of our accommodations were satisfactory and the itinerary was certainly loaded with all of the items we wanted to see before we left Egypt. I felt as though we received the "royal" treatment everywhere we went. It started from the moment we stepped foot off of the plane. We had heard so many stories about how complicated it could be maneuvering through customs but with the assistance of Admed, we blinked and it was over. He was such a joy to interact with and he made sure that every step of our journey went smoothly. I don't know how he did it because I felt as though we were his only clients with the amount of attention he gave to us. Every site and every encounter was so grand but the fact that we could just show up and enjoy it, made it seem as though Egypt was ours for the exploring. All of our guides were knowledgeable and sincere at every location but our hearts were taken away by Zeina Salem. She was just such a joy to be around. We could ask questions about anything and everything and she always had the answers and gave us an opportunity to see what Egypt was really like and how blessed we were to be standing where so many lives had before us. Everyone took such wonderful care of us and seemed so passionate about what they were doing that we left Egypt with the best feeling in the world. On top of that, it gave our family a chance to do what we really needed, some time to just be with each other. Not having the hassle of attractions and lines and all that entails, gave us time to just have fun! Every person we encountered was a joy and I am so grateful that my husband came across your company. I would and will recommend your company to anyone even considering going to Egypt. No other company could possible compare to yours and if they tried, they wouldn't have your staff and they would pale in comparison. Thank you so much for giving me and my family an experience of a lifetime. We will always treasure the moments we shared and that was in large part to you and your company.

Dear Ask-Aladdin I am Cindy, Daniel's mother and one of the three in his travel group. How do I begin to tell you how fantastic this trip was! We were so fortunate to visit all of the sites that were of interest to us and enjoyed so many people, foods and cultures. We were treated like royalty from the moment we landed in Cairo until we flew out on May 1! Our guides were very informative and we were taken with the passion they expressed in what they did. Our very favorite guide was in Cairo, Zeina Salem, she also was with us for the trips to Sinai and Alexandria. She was very friendly, informative and made us feel the passion that she has for her country and it's history. She spoiled us with special treatment that would have been impossible for a party of more than three. She was an absolute delight! We also were given the best treatment from our representative Ah Met, our driver Hamid and all the other drivers and guides we were in contact with. Ah Met met us at the airport and from then on was there for all our needs and made all our transactions run very smoothly! There were also some very thoughtful additional gestures, such as flowers upon our return from Luxor, that made us feel very pampered! You have a top rated company with top notch employees! I would recommend your services to all I know and will use them again in the future should I be so fortunate to visit your wonderful country again! Inshallah! Read More

Dear Egypt Ask aladdin Team I have thought of sending you an email to thank for your overall arrangement of my Egypt tour. However, since I am too busy after the trip, I can hardly have time to write you (and your colleagues who have taken care of us) an email to thank you all. In summary, we found your overall arrangement excellent. The tour guides are ever on time in greeting us with most sincerity (Mr Ahmed and others). They care every details for us which makes our journey easy, smooth and relaxed. Besides, the local guides are very experienced and knowledgeable (Mr Ibrahim and the girl who accompanies our pyramid and Sphinx tour). Special appreciation should be given to Mr Mohammed (the driver), who is extremely kind and keeps our journey safe and efficient all the way. Last, we enjoyed the hotels and the cruise (food of course) of the journey. We are satisfied in all aspects of your arrangement and I will definitely refer any of my friends to join your tour who are planning to Egypt. Please , would you be kind enough to forward this email to Mr Ahmed, Mr Mohamed, Mr Ibrahim and the female local guide (whose name I have forgotten). Also, please send my warmest regards and heartiest blessings to them and their families. Read More

Dear Egypt Ask- Aladdin We had a wonderful trip to Egypt. It was even better then we thought it would be. It was very well organized with lots of helpful people meeting us at the airport and train stations and river boat. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and they would set the tour to our needs. I will highly recommend your tour company to all those looking for an exciting Egyptian adventure.

Dear Ask-Aladdin Two weeks soaking in the hot sun of Egypt but we don't mind that because at the same time, we were rewarded, soaking in the vast ancient history of Egypt. Reading, seeing pictures and watching documentaries about Egypt history is never the same like seeing the real history in real life. Seeing the real history is never the same with experienced guide from Travel line especially our many thanks to Zeina who brought us around in Cairo. She just knew what interest us most and just skip things that we don't fancy that much especially while we were at the Khan al-Khalili bazaar. The bazaar was special but walking through the small alleys around that area gave us a better impressions about the real life of the Egyptians. Oh yes, of course the real local food that she brought us to! Superb!! Mahmoud who guide us throughout the Nile cruise via Aswan and Luxor is gifted with his knowledge and steady pace of his explanations. But the main highlights of the whole trip for us, must be climbing Mt. Sinai very early in morning, just to be there to catch the sunrise. What a fantastic experience! All the effort to wake up early and climb the mountain diminished with the reward at the top!Many thanks to all the Travel line family. We will be back for another adventure with the ancient history.

Egypt travel Experts I would like to thank you very much for a wonderful trip to Egypt. Thank you just doesn’t seem enough for all your hard work and attention to detail. I certainly learned a lot about Egypt and the history. You made it all seem so clear and easy to understand. Cliff even said he learned a lot and understood the history better. I liked the way you gave us variety in sights and adventures. By the end of the trip, I really could see and understand the hieroglyphics. It was beginning to come alive and make sense. Some one asked what was my favorite part of the trip. It was all my favorite!! Each day was something new and different. I did especially like being on the Nile river. The small boats were fun and so was the cruise. I spent the whole afternoon on deck watching the river go by. I did like all the tombs and pyramids. The light shows were great! A special treat. Thanks again for everything

Dear Ask- Aladdin I would be very happy if you want to include my e-mail with your testimonials. As you know, I have been e-mailing with you over the last week during the planning for my Egypt trip. You have always been very helpful, and clarified many of the issues that are almost impossible to understand from the tour agents and guide books. Information such as entrance fees, Abu Simbel flights, reliable costs, what to do, whether Nefertari tomb is open in Luxor, and so many other things! I just counted - and you've sent me 11 emails! And, the most amazing thing, is not once did you ask for any charge or anything for your advice, or encourage me to do a tour trip with you, or anything. You obviously love your job which I think is essential to being able to do a job well. And you obviously know your stuff - in fact, most of the tour agents were wrong on information and you were right! So, I would readily encourage people to contact you regarding your tour guide services. or for any advice on those tricky issues that are hard to sort out in planning a trip to Egypt..

Dear Ask aladdin Team I am very impressed with your vast knowledge, customer service and ability to make things happen! Due to my husband's job, we have traveled to many countries and I always study and navigate them myself with no problem. I am so glad we found you and did NOT try to do this with Egypt. You made things run so smoothly and checked on us every step of the way. Plus, having the expertise of you and Mohamed Anwar to explain all the sights was priceless!! Our return trips will always be done with you as our guide. Thank you so much for showing us incredible Egypt!!

Dear Ask Aladdin Team I wanted to thank you and all your staff for arranging such a wonderful trip for us to Egypt. It was truly memorable in every way for myself and family. I am sad that we did not get the opportunity to thank you personally for all you did at the airport before we left for Amsterdam. Everything was very well organized. The guides we had (Ayman and Osama) were fantastic. We have a very pleasant group also for the trip which was great. Very much enjoyed the tour agenda. I will be my pleasure to give references for your company, we were all very impressed and appreciative of the seamless organization. Really looking forward to making another trip to your wonderful country... there is still so much we want to see ( Alexandria, Sham el- Sheik etc.) Thanks again to everyone on your team. Hope to be in touch soon.
