Hotel at Giza is very old and dirty, water turn hot and cold frequently, without electricity there times at night. No comment on Nile River cruise cause did not go for covid 19, tour guild meca at Cairo is good
Overall, our trip went according to plan with us being met and picked up at the appointment times and places. However our free day at the end of the tour was unexpectedly moved to the third day.
Our guide Mohsin was passionate about his history and gave us a reasonable account of what we were witnessing. He also helped us with our shopping.
However I recommend that optional tours during free days should be mentioned in the tour itinerary so that people are aware of these options and can budget accordingly if required.
Egypt was wonderful must visit place if you love history. Overall experience was OK.
Couple of issues:
complaint I have is they won't informed you about your itinerary, hotel and flights before time. So we won't be able to book any other tours beforehand. They gave itinerary last week and that also change when we reached there. We have to cancel out "Abu simple" tour which we booked one week before and had to booked private tour through them so we end paying a lot for same tour.
Nile Cruise . We spend lots of time on Cruise. But there was not much some entertainment. basic stuff they should keep in cruise like TT table, Pool Table, Board game ...
Thanks for the two gentleman's named Mohammad & Ahmed Haroon one in Cairo and other in laxer. excellent guides. we enjoy every minutes of the tour. they way they explain. is beyond ours imagination. we are happy to say if we get a chance to come again we will request these two again.
The tour was excellent
Was met at the Cairo airport upon arrival and taken through to the driver who took me to the hotel. Unfortunately I did not get the guides name name but it was brilliantly done
The next morning I was transferred to Luxor and my guide, Roshdy, met me and with the driver we started the tour.
He was thorough and kept me fully informed about the places we visited he went beyond the duties expected and nothing was to much touble. He not only knew what he was talking about he could impart the knowledge
After the river cruise we undertook a tour of Aswan. Once again really well done
Was transferred to the airport and flee flew back to Cairo. Once again met at the airport by my guide Mohamed Mahmoud, and transferred to my hotel. The next morning he picked me up and we undertook the Cairo tour
As with Roshdy Mahmoud was brilliant. He spoke English very clearly and knew what he was talking about and was able to convey the information in a easy to understand way
The next day was picked up and taken back to the airport.
Overall the experience was brilliant seeing so many interesting temples etc. The experience was enhanced by the two guides
The Cairo part of the tour can be crazy, patience is key, lots of people pushing people and learning how tips are a big part of the culture. The Nile cruise is the best part of the tour a pleasant experience. Be advised summer in Egypt is Crazy hot 40C+ it is shocking. Don't think it's good for older people, saw many running out of breathe. Take an umbrella for some shade. I will say we did enjoy this trip, the history and sights are amazing.
This tour was amazing. I am a solo traveler and i wanted something custom made for me, and with this tour i found my match. everything about it was great. especially the service with both tour guides. the hotel and ship was excellent. they really took care of me. People in Egypt are kind and respectful. Please go to Egypt their is so much to see. Take enough cash for TIPS these people deserve every penny. So much to see, and I got to see it all.
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.
The scenery is amazing, and the crew on board the ship were incredible. A few little things, though, created some issues: the itinerary failed to mention that we would spend the first full 48 hours of the cruise on a ship that didn't move. Half of the four-day cruise, you spend docked in one spot. Also, our guide assumed we didn't want to spend the extra few bucks to be allowed to take photographs at the Valley of Kings and never gave us that option. That was a bummer. And you may as well take out that "free bottled water" part of your inclusions...That never happened.
For a first timer going to Egypt , it was an awesome way to start. Reflection tour organised everything from start to end. Despite a few choppy start with the hotel and cruise, Georgina and her team promptly handled everything professionally. well done. I got a little sick during my tour and my tour guide Mohammed Sayed (they are all Mohammeds :)) had a genuine concern of my wellbeing. Appreciate that. Well Egypt is beautiful and do visit this ancient country. You can do it on your own or with Reflection tour or other tour agency but definitely have a tour guide as there is soo much of history and knowledge to take and certainly enjoy it as I did.
