For the celebration of our anniversary my husband and I chose Egypt as the next country to visit. We love to travel. My husband was skeptical about the safety in Egypt. Originally we will just be visiting Cairo. Since we are already there I insisted that I also want see Aswan, also part of Egypt but an hour away by flight. At first my husband didn’t want the idea since Abu Simbel is in the border of Sudan. Again he is skeptical with safety. A day before the trip I was able to convince my husband to go to Aswan and see Abu Simbel. I read a lot of reviews about how people will hassle you in Egypt if you do not do your research. I learned a lot that some people offers favors but in the end will ask for the tip especially to tourists. I will now share how I planned the trip. Our stay in Cairo is from Feb 14-18, 2019 1. I booked Le Meridien Airport Hotel - which has a connection bridge/tube from the airport. Most genius plan I made! Upon landing in Cairo we got straight to hotel by just walking thru the bridge. Thats how fast, easy and hassle free no need to take any taxi or talk to strangers to ask for help. 2. I booked with RAMASSIDE TOURS- best decision ever. I booked them ofcourse weeks before our trip. They are professionals, friendly and fast. Their tour operator Nadia was very nice and accommodating she answered all my inquiries fast and accurate. They speak very good too. Easy to understand. They also have a live chat just in case you have some sudden questions in mind and need a fast response it was one of the best thing this company has! LIVE Chatting with them. 3. Just upon arrival in Cairo. Since we got enough sleep from our long flight we walked straight to our hotel about 15mins only. Upon checking in to our hotel their tour guide Ahmed is already waiting at the lobby to start our day tour. They are punctual! On time. We checked in and took a fast shower then went to start the tour. One thing I noticed the car of Ramasside company was SUPER CLEAN, comfortable and airconditioned. Ahmed was very polite, knowledgeable and friendly too. He assisted us in every way he can even taking photos for us. Day 1 we went to the Egyptian museum. 4.Day 2 We went to Memphis, Sakkara and lastly Pyramids of Giza and Sphynx. 5.Day 3 We flew from Cairo to Aswan. Upon arrival in the airport it was around 8am the tour guide from Ramasside is already waiting for us outside as soon as we were out..he has a signage of our names written in a paper so he is very easy to find. So convenient too. We love him as he was super nice also. His name is also Ahmed. Very nice knowledgeable man too. He took us to High dam scenery. Then we sailed to Philae Temple. It was a beautiful and amazing temple. The experience was extremely fantastic. Then finished our day checked in to our hotel around 4pm in Aswan and overnight. 6.Day 4 Ahmed and the driver picked us up from the hotel at 0345am for our 3hrs drive to Abu Simbel. Before leaving hotel the hotel has already prepared packed breakfast for us and we can also take coffee from their restaurant. Again the car is very clean and comfortable. Arrived in the majestic Abu Simbel at around 8am. We were the first one to arrive in the temple so we got the nicest photos without anyone at the background. Unbelievably majestic! Left around 1030am to catch our flight back to Cairo. We love all our tour guides as he was very kind to us. Before my review ends this is what I learned from our trip 1.Egypt is SAFE! There are police almost everywhere very protective to all the visiting tourists. As tourism is a very big source of income to their country. So they do all what they can to assist visitors. 2.Egyptian people are very warm and welcoming especially those ones from the airport, hotels and tour guides. They are trained because tourism is one of their biggest sources of income in their country. But as piece of advice to avoid hassles just don’t to talk to anyone else. Other people will try to offer you with souvenirs etc if you dont have plans to buy just ignore so they won’t hassle you. Just follow your tour guide’s advice and everything will come out smooth and enjoyable. 3. Good food, February weather is still cold. Hope my review can help a lot for those of who plans to visit Egypt soon. Enjoy!…

Our tour guide Hatyam Saady 'Sam' was wonderful. He is an expert tour guide who is professional, knowledgeable and efficient. He was with us during our entire Nile cruise from Aswan to Luxor and made sure we were well taken care off.

Ahmad Unis was tremendously helpful as a guide. He picked us up in Aswan and took us to Abu Simbel for the day. Helped with transportation needs the next day to Kom Ombo at no charge. Ahmad really went the extra mile!!

I will start my trip to Egypt on 12.Feb.2018 with total of 22 days. I book the tour of Ramasside 19 days tour . With the help of tour operator Nada Yahia, who responded in polite, helpful,and detailed. I was satisfied with the tour they planned and the price is reasonable. I look forward to start my Egypt trip. Once again I thank Nada Yahia！！…
