The reviews did not lie!
I have come back from a cruise on the Nile a week ago and just want to convey how amazing the whole trip was. I booked the trip for my mum's 50th birthday and was initially confused as to which company to go for - there are so many, but decided not to take too much risk and go for the one agent that had the best reviews...And we were not disappointed! Ana Abu, our customer representative had taken so much time to answer my millions of questions and our guide Ashraf was knowledgeable, punctual and on top had a wonderful personality. What a fantastic trip... Many thanks to Your Egypt Tours for their assistance and dedication. Oh, also the transfers were perfect, we never had to wait longer than 2 minutes for our little van. Moreover, in terms of safety (tourism seems to have fallen since the change of government), well I can tell you that I felt safer in Egypt in the hands of Your Egypt Tours than in Central London!
