Private Tour: 8 Days 7 Nights Pyramids and Nile Cruise by Air from Cairo | May 2019
This is a good budget tour, hosted by Reflections. Tours normally are done between 1 and 3 in the afternoon. And there is an “open” day. So if you want to do any additional day or evening tours, they are an additional cost. I did 3 night tours and a couple day tours……..which ended up costing me another $500. You do not have to do the additional tours. You do not have to book additional, if you chose not to.
Reflections picks you up at the airport, gets you through customs and visa and takes care of you from the time you land in Egypt until they get you back through security on your departure flight. My two guides Mahamed (Cairo) and Youssef (Luxor and Aswan) were excellent. Their English is very good and they are nice people. They have great knowledge about the sites you visit and take the time to explain. And they always check to make sure your questions are answered and allow you additional time to walk around the sites. They also take care of you. I had one merchant try to take me for additional money and Youssef went back and got my money back. Much thanks!! They will also take you to places off the beaten path. Local markets, tea shops and restaurants……….with the locals.
The only complaint I have is that the booking was changed………itinerary, hotel and flights. I was not informed until I landed in Cairo. And it took me and my guide a couple of days to get the changes to suit my schedule. I would advise Reflections to ensure that they always contact the customer when changes occur.
Otherwise, I would recommend this tour to first timers in Egypt....Read more
