Why I would HIGHLY recommend Experience Egypt Tours to visit Cairo, the Pyramids, and Sphinx
First things first…this wasn’t sponsored, etc. I’m highlighting our tour company because from a western perspective there is a lot of worry surrounding security, what to expect, etc. I’d be lying if I wasn’t hesitant as well, and even cancelled a prior trip due to those concerns, and I’m no expert regarding geopolitical issues, but I do travel a lot, and if I was hesitant, you probably are too. After going to Egypt, I’m very eager to go back. I’m not certainly not promising a worry free trip, or issues are resolved, but what I can say is that our tour company provided an incredible experience start to finish.
I was put in contact with Mohamed Bahaa via Fabio Vilela ( https://passageirodeprimeira.com/ ) who trusted EET to help him with a family trip. I couldn’t have been happier. From meet and greet at the airport, expedited visas, an extremely well spoken and educated guide ( Rady ), and an entirely private tour. We were on constant contact from booking, pickup, during the trip, and after. We always had an english speaking guide with us, the van was late model, clean, comfortable, and air conditioned, and any questions we had were always answered.
Our tour included
- Meet and Greet at the airport
- Expedited Visa processing
- Private transfer to the hotel
- Private tour for 4
- Egyptian Museum
- Pyramids of Giza
- Palace of Perfumes tour
- Papyrus Museum
I’ve put together a video highlighting what we saw on our trip, but if you’re at all considering visiting Cairo, Valley of the Kings, and even Jordan, I would reach out to Mohamed: firstname.lastname@example.org and tell them we sent you 🙂
