worst vacation ever
Venkata V
, Jan 2020
Worst vacation ever. The tour owner and his employees are all cheaters and tried to cheat us every single day during our trip. They put us at motel standard properties even though we had selected supreme package on viator. the properties are super old and run down and our rooms were not cleant or shower was not working. they gave us smoking rooms on different floors and never bothered to help us with our situation. At every hotel checkin process took for ever. For everything they wanted extra money. Never let us enjoy any of temples peacefully as they wanted to take us to stores of their choice to sell local products to us in order for them to earn commission on the sale. MOHAMMED the tour manager was not helpful and one of the most arrogant persons i have ever met in my life. Even though we were promised a free shuttle back to the airport the hotel was charging an arm and leg and we had to spend additional money on a ride to the airport. The tour company did not even apologize for their mistake in fact accused us that we were lazy. We are world travelers but never been cheated this badly on any of our worldly trips. Their tour guides dont speak english well enough for us to even understand what they were explaining to us. Tony one of their tour guides forced us to put up a good review on tripadvisor before he left. He also forced us to tip every person extra for no reason at all. PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY. We paid a hefty price for a lot of discomfort and inconveniences.Leaving Egypt with a bad taste and unhappy vacation. I repeat please DONT use saleh or mohammed services.

Additional tours are quite pricey for solo travelers
Devon B
, Aug 2019
Tour was decent. The additional tours ranged from $50-$200 usd if you travel solo. The tour guides are very aggressive with telling you how much to tip each day. One even texted me via whats app to tell me he's upset I didn't tip his driver. The Hilton hotel was 3star at best. The Nile boat had better rooms than the Hilton. If I could do it again I would piece together my own trip.

Mr Devon Thank you sir for your review that help us to show you that HILTON is big American chain only 5* deluxe sir, there are never 3* or 4*. Second of course tours for SOLO will cost you all fare but if you are 2 adults of course costs will be half price. You gave us 3*** review sir for nothing on our hands, it is transportation-guide-driver cost sir, these are rates in Egypt same like USA, UK and all over the World Your chance that you booked this tour alone hope to see you again with your friends then rates will be more nice Salah

My biggest disappointment of this tour is that I didn't have a chance to meet Mr. Salah. From the very beginning Mr. Salah was kind, considerate so accommodating. Even though this was a package Mr. Salah and his staff were always available to make sure the tour was exactly what we wanted. For example, our flight arrived at 1:30am by the time we got to our hotel it was nearly 3:00am but when we went to check in they couldn't find our reservation. I sent Mr. Salah a text that he answered right away and within just a few minutes we had our room. Mr. Salah and his team were flexible with the itinerary allowing us to add side trips and even cancel those side trips when other things came up. The guides were knowledgeable and well informed about all the places we visited and things we saw. Their explanations and detailed enhanced the trip and we left feeling that we didn't just see Egypt we got got to know the history, culture and the people. The guides were always right on time. It was an excellent trip.

Excellent 7 nite tour

This was an EXCELLENT tour! Although we got off to a rough start with the original airport pick up in Cairo, everything from there was great! Mohammed was an informative & helpful guide in Cairo who takes great pics. We were handed off to Refaie & his drivers/boaters in Luxor thru Aswan. We participated in the extras that interested us only. The Nile River Cruise was great too. All cruise staff were very accommodating. Riding on the Sundeck caused locals to yell & wave as we passed by. All around good experience that I would highly recommend to anyone. Thanks again to Mohammed for taking great pics & teaching us helpful words and phrases & such. Thanks to Rafaei for being a great guide and educating us on things within the tour & on things that had nothing to do with the tour.
Our first experience
, Mar 2019
From the beginning to the end, it was a good experience with Viator, they put us in a five star hotel, service in the cruise was beyond our expectations, all of the crew was extremely helpful, a variety of food and the guided tours were very informative and fun, we will definitely recommend them without a second thought.
Definetely not 5 stars!
, Jan 2019
Very disappointed with the experience and how it was advertised. we booked a private tour with 5 stars hotels and cruise, but none of this was real.We stayed at the Hilton Ramses and the Le Passage Cairo hotels. The Hilton Ramses was a run-down hotel, with peeled wallpaper, rusty and disgusting showers, no minibar and a very dirty reception. This hotel seems as it had been built 20 years ago, and never received proper maintenance.The Le Passage, tough it was better that at the Hilton Ramses, it still was far from the 5 star quality advertised. We also had a weir situation, where we tried to use the pool, but the smell of kerosene coming from the nearby planes forced us back to our room.For the Cruise, we had the Grand Princess Nile, from Luxor to Aswan. Again, the cruise was advertised as 5 stars and it was far from it. We had a full board service, but the quality of the food was terrible. It was clear that the food was not cooked on board but only heated there. Also, there were some clear indications of the poor quality: we only had instant coffee for breakfast, during the whole trip there was no TV signal and the cruise had old furniture, dirty carpets and wore down towels, that were changed only if we actively asked for it. Finally, the tour was not private, and the optional trips were heavily overpriced. We shared the tour (Luxor to Aswan) with another couple. We had to accommodate our schedule to their optional excursions which lead to the schedule of the whole trip being very inconvenient. We wake up at 5 in the morning very day, even if after the excursion there was nothing else to do for the day. Also, most of the “must-visit” temples in Luxor and Aswan were pricey optionals. We blindly booked the tour, as we expected that Viator was going to give us at least all the major temples in Cairo, Luxor and Aswan. Instead of that, we had to pay overpriced rates to see the main attractions.On our trip to Abu Simbel we had very dangerous drivers that made things like overpassing other vans on curves and drive less than 50 centimetres away from the van in front of them just to save a couple of pounds in gas. Finally, we had a couple of shopping stops that were conveniently excluded from the description of the tour. We were taken to a papyrus shop, a perfume shop and a stone souvenir shop. It was clear that all the items in these places were a rip off.

I wouldn't do Egypt without them!
, Nov 2018
This visit to Egypt was only one leg of a 2 month journey including Iceland and Europe. After going it alone with no guides and very little planned throughout Europe I was so glad that we booked this tour for the Egypt leg of the journey. I would have been lost otherwise. Navigating a city as big as Cairo would have been a disaster without them. Having a guide and a driver is the only way to go. We felt safe and well cared for the entire time. Our guides Mohamed, Nour, and Khalaf were amazing. They were full of information and made each day and adventure. There is absolutely no way I could imagine seeing everything I saw and doing everything I did without their guidance. This trip took me from Upper Egypt almost entirely South in Aswan to Lower Egypt all the way North to the Mediterranean Sea in Alexandria and saw nearly everything along the way. The Nile cruise was a highlight of the trip. It was a welcome relaxation time in between the go-go-go of the journey. The staff were friendly and always accommodating. A couple of tips for anyone planning on taking this trip. Budget plenty of extra money for souvenirs and other purchases along the way. Part of the culture of the trip is visiting shops where they make papyrus, silk rugs, alabaster pots, essences and more. I could have spent hundreds more at each of these stops I was so impressed with the quality and craftsmanship but I didn't budget enough to make the kinds of purchases I would have liked. Also, make sure you have enough cash on hand everywhere you go. Things are cheap in Egypt relative to most western countries. But you have to pay "baksheesh" or tip everywhere you go. If you want to use the toilet, you need to pay baksheesh, if someone offers to help you take a photo at a site they will expect you to pay them. You will also need to add the word "Shucran" to your vocabulary. You will be constantly approached by people selling trinkets and it is polite to say "shucran" to let them know "no thank you". Lastly, go with an open mind. I have no problem staying in modest accommodations especially considering Egypt is a developing country. The rooms and hotels were all clean with friendly staff. If you are a stickler for fancy hotels with 4 Seasons standards you will not be impressed. If you are a traveler seeking an experience of a lifetime you will be glad you booked this tour!

I booked this this tour for the end of August 2018/ beginning of September 2018. Mr Saleh sent me my itinerary. I made some changes after I booked the tour and he was very accommodating. I let him know that I was a solo female traveler and he assured me that he would put me with his best guides and that I would be safe. The guide that met me at the airport was very helpful, I arrived late at night but I think I was able to get through Customs and security much quicker having him take care of everything. My Cairo guide Sobhi and driver were waiting for me outside the airport and took me to my hotel. My guide told me about the city on our drive. He got me checked-into the hotel and went over my itinerary and let me know what other tours I could add-on. Sobhi was very nice and full of knowledge he has a formal education in Egyptology. He took great care of me and checked with me often on what I would and would not like to do during the tours as well as how long I would like to spend on each site/ activity which is one of the reasons I like traveling solo, I'm on my own schedule for the most part. In Cairo I saw the pyramids, the Cairo Museum and did an evening walking tour of Old Cairo with dinner. My airport guide, driver and guide for Luxor/Aswan Reg were all also, nice and accommodating. In Luxor I saw the Luxor and Karnack temple, and rode a horse carriage through town. While Cairo is a very large city, Luxor is small and more intimate. Also while in Luxor I did the sunrise hot air balloon ride that had views of the Nile, Hatshepsuts Temple, Valley of the Queens and Colssi of Memnon. I HIGHLY recommend this experience! After the hot air balloon ride we were able to get to Hatshepsuts Temple before everyone else about 7am which made for an amazing photo opportunity. This site was also a highlight for me. From there we went to the Valley of the Kings where your ticket allows you to tour 3 tombs of your choice my guide recommended the 3 I should see. This was another very cool and impressive site. I also saw the temples of Edfu and Kom Ombo. My stomach got upset during the trip so my guide took me to a pharmacy and helped get medicine. He also, checked regularly to see how I was feeling. In Awswan I did the tour out to Abu Simble about a 3 hour drive each way and took a boat from Aswan to the Nubian Village another highly recommended tour. The only sight I was underwhelmed with was the Asawn Dam, I didnt think it was worth paying anything to see. That could be because I live near a large dam Hoover Dam but It's something I would recommend skipping. I chose to skip the Unfinished Obelisk. My guides took me too an oil shop, papyrus shop and an alabaster shop. At each location they show you how the items are made and give you the opportunity to buy something. If you don't want to buy anything or any more than what you have choose, just tell them no, thank you. My Cairo Guide checked-in on me on occasion after I left Cairo and he as well as my Luxor/Aswan guide and Mr Saleh all checked-on me my last days before flying home which I appreciated. I went with the 5-star hotel option which I recommend. The ship was not as nice as the hotels and they allow smoking inside the ship, the smell would travel into my room. Please note that you have to pay for wifi on the ship if you do not have a phone plan that works in Egypt. I felt safe with my guides, they were my eyes and ears. They also told me how to interact with others and who/what I should avoid. The country takes security at the airports and tourists sites very seriously. There are metal detectors and armed guards at all the attractions. With all that said, I would recommend this company and would book them again if I ever return to Egypt! P.S. The guides are great at taking photos for you
I can't say enough about one of the...
Dennis E
, Sep 2018
I can't say enough about one of the most fantastic trips I've ever had in my life!!!! There were a few things I'd like to change, things that I'd do differently--but the trip, as designed by the companies Viator and Explore Plus Holidays was exceptional. Everything I needed was right at my fingertips and the care taken to ensure my complete comfort and whim was handled with the utmost precision. This is the company I would recommend, in a heartbeat, to provide the most amazing trip possible to Egypt. When I go back, I'm starting with the fine folks of Explore Plus Holidays. The guides, Ibrahim and Ragab, worked so hard to make sure every aspect of the tour exceeded my expectations. And, they succeeded. Thank you!!! And the drivers, Joseph and I can't remember their names, kept us safe and out of roadside dangers!!! I chose this company on a guess. Viator had done a decent job for me before, so I took a chance and tried them again. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I shall trust you, again, for my next trip. This was an amazing experience. My one suggestion would be to include entrance fees into the price. I really felt nickled and dimed TO DEATH!!!!! Give me one set price--I'd pay happily! But having to fork out fee after fee after fee was the MOST disappointing aspect of the entire trip. I understand the reason--but, folks, I'd rather pay those fees up front than have to pull my wallet out every single time I wanted to see something important. I know you warned us up front that entrance fees are not included, but half-way through the tour, I was ready to give over my first-born just to skip the part of having to pay yet ANOTHER entrance fee. If you want to see Egypt--in the best possible way--go with these folks!!!
overall good but totally overprized options
, Aug 2018
The tour offers just accommodation and not even always food. Everything else is extra: All temple entrances, tips (They insist a bit too much on that) etc. But the optional tours are just totally overpriced, basically I spent more money for that than for the whole tour. The knowledge of the guides was ok, but not overwhelming; a few times they could not answer my questions, or even gave me wrong info.
