Great things people are saying...

Dear AskAladdin Thank you for your follow up email. I had an enjoyable and very memorable trip to Egypt. I found all the services to be exemplary. Everything met or exceeded my expectations. The hotels, cruise, guides, and drivers were all very good. While there, I bought additional, optional tours. They too were extraordinary. I found the Egyptian people to be friendly, pleasant, always smiling, with a good sense of humor. It was my pleasure having an opportunity to share time with them. As far as safety was concerned, I personally felt safe while in Egypt, and I am a solo traveler. I saw a significant amount of security everywhere. If that is what is necessary to insure the safety of your foreign travelers, so be it. I personally had no problems with it. In conclusion, thank you for allowing me to visit your wonderful country. I would not hesitate to visit again in the future. I will not hesitate to recommend to friends here in the United States to travel to Egypt. It is an extraordinary destination, unique, and unlike anywhere else in the world. Your travel services also come very highly recommended by me. Thanks again. Thank you

Dear Ask Aladdin Team We have just completed a trip to Egypt (10 - 21 November 2012) impeccably organized by Mr. Bassem Saad at Ask Aladdin. Arriving at Cairo airport we were met by Ask Aladdin's agent, Mr. Ramadan, who steered us through immigration and customs and ensured all of our travel arrangements in Egypt were completely stress free. At no time were we unsure or anxious about our transport, accommodation or our security. Our accommodation was exceptionally good 5 stars. What could be better than gazing at the pyramids from your bedroom in Cairo, feluccas sailing in a Nile sunset from your balcony in Luxor or all of Cairo spread before you from our last hotel on the banks of the Nile. Our four night Nile cruise not only took us to many amazing archaeological sites, but also turned out to be great fun, scenically stunning and very relaxing. Again, very comfortable accommodation, great food and enthusiastic staff. Our guides Sandy in Cairo and Omar in Luxor were both extremely knowledgeable and very accommodating to our needs. As well as giving us all the information we could need about the ancient sites we chose to visit, they also gave us insights into modern Egyptian life and the Egyptian people. Their generosity in sharing and explaining aspects of their lives fostered in us a great affection for Egypt. Both of us had studied Ancient Egyptian History at school, so this trip had been a dream for nearly 50 years. It lived up to and beyond all expectations and we unreservedly recommend Ask Aladdin if you are planning to visit Egypt. And do visit Egypt. It's an amazing experience on so many levels. Heartfelt thanks to everyone at Ask Aladdin who made this journey so memorable. Robert and Michael, Australia.

Dear Ask Aladdin Team We had an absolutely amazing vacation courtesy of you, our guides, and all the people of Egypt that we encountered. You realize, of course, that we are the envy of everyone that sees our photos and hears our stories about our trip. We have recommended you to everyone, so hopefully some others will be visiting soon, courtesy of your company. Everyone welcomed us so nicely to the country, including every taxi driver and anyone else we spoke to. Our guide Abdo(Abdul) was so sweet and hard-working. He is an excellent guide - super educational & informative, and it's easy to see that he loves his work. He even made sure there was a birthday cake & singing for my husband's day. Mustafa added local information & color to his touring. Our greeter, whose name now escapes me, I apologize- was extremely efficient, timely, and courteous, tranferring us to and from airports, hotels, and sights. Upon seeing all the huge buses disgorging enormous tour groups we were especially happy that our trip was with your company. We appreciated the personal attention that comes with a small group and I'm sure we got so much more from our experience than the large groups did. For the record, we really liked doing the cruise first, then Cairo - it would not have suited us as well the other way. I wish everyone continued health and happiness in the new year. Early congratulations to Abdo & Mustafa on their marriages. Continued success for the company - your services are very much appreciated. And Stuart, I loved our little phone chat.
