To the number of things that you do in a short period of time, which was pretty cramped but definitely worth it seeing all the main sights.

The trip was amazing - Pyramids, Valley of the Kings, Cairo and Luxor and so many more things to see.

We are forever grateful to Ahmed who helped us to devise the trip.

On our arrival to the Cairo airport we were greeted by Tarke the tour leader he help[ed us to get our visa in no time and escorted us to the hotel , Later that day under Fayed’s guidance we explored the pyramids at Giza and Cairo, After flying from Cairo to Aswan we were met by Muhammed our guide for the southern part of our trip.

With him, we visited Philae island, Abu Simbel, and other sites.

Muhammed accompanied us during our Nile Cruise while we visited multiple sites, Luxor and beyond Upon completion of our Nile Cruise, we flew back to Cairo.

Both of our guides were superb, and the friendliness and willingness to make our trip a pleasant one was unparalleled.

Our trip consultant Ahmed was checking on us in person, and by phone throughout the trip making sure that things were going well.

So,many-many thanks for Look at Egypt Tours for making our trip truly a trip of a lifetime.
