Excellent 6 days tour(Cairo,Alexandria, Luxor)
Over all our tour to Egypt was AMAZING, the staff of the Egypt Guidelines manage to gives us detailed good itinerary from the Day 1 we arrived Cairo. Heba, Mohamed Hedar were two person help us with all of this. Of course our amazing tour guide, Reham which we consider our friend now. We are on private tour for 3 person which was more very convenient, we have our van with a good experienced driver, MOhamed so manage to see most of places with ease, from Old city, Coptic Cairo, Alexandria,Giza, Sprinx, Sakkara, Luxor, Egyptian musuem and more. It was all WORTH to visit all these ancient places in history. I will definitely coming back to Egypt..waiting for the new biggest largest Egyptian museum opens. Food as well as was GREAT. Reham our Egyptology(tour guide} was really really really very good in what does she do, Thumbs UP to her. Heba the coordinator see to it that we are fine every time, everyday she will call us and ask how we are doing and how's the tour. Egypt is a must see place which I consider a WONDERS OF THE WORLD. Come go to Egypt. travel@egyptguidelines.com(for inquiry) contact them ask for HEBA.

Well run service and Mohamed Hedar was an outstanding guide
My wife was invited to give a talk in Cairo, and I got to tag along. We had four days to see the beautiful sights and we were lucky enough to be assigned Mohamed as our guide. He met us at the airport and was with us through almost our entire visit. He is deeply knowledgeable about the history of Egypt and was also very informative about daily life in the teeming city. He asked a lot of questions about our interests and how we wanted to spend our time, and then strived to help us hit every goal. So we got to visit the shores of the Red Sea, eat at a roadside kebab stand, have a distilled visit to the Egyptian Museum, and try the delicious fruit juices at every stop. He was unfailingly accommodating. We asked to switch hotels to the Mena in Giza (different from what we had originally planned) and he allowed us to do this with no fuss. He informed us of the rough prices with every street vendor. And he gave us wonderful insight into the university system, working life, politics, family, marriage and demographics of his wonderful home country. We had interacted with the manager Heba entirely on email before we landed, so we weren't sure what to expect. We were gratified that the agency was unfailingly professional and that Mohammed (along with Hamid, our driver) were so warm, friendly and visitor-oriented. We will be back again, and accompanied next time by our three children!

Mohamed Hedar was a Perfect Guide
Another guide service in Luxor had subcontracted for our tour of Cairo, and we were met by Mohamed Hedar at the airport. He was excellent in showing us the pyramids in Giza and Saqqara, as well as the outdoor museum in Memphis and the National Museum. His english is excellent, and he is knowledgeable and personable. You can't go wrong in booking a tour with him.

Exceptional Guide - 14 Days (Cairo, Luxor, Aswan, Nile Cruise, Hurgadha, Cairo)
M. Hedar with Egypt Guidelines organized a two week private guided trip throughout Egypt for my family of four in December 2015/January 2016. We decided to travel to Egypt despite recent security warnings and felt safe during all of our activities. I couldn't have asked for a better guide or more responsive service from Hedar. We had help with airport transfers and visas, they ensured our hotel rooms exceeded our expectations throughout the trip, he was flexible with the planned itinerary when we needed to make changes (like go to McDonald's for kids), provided friendly and safe drivers, and endured some long days with us where we packed so much sightseeing into our trip. Hedar was with us for all our time in Cairo. He arranged all other guides, drivers and transfer agents for the other cities, but was still available via WhatsApp to check in and respond to our questions and concerns. Hedar's knowledge of the history and significance of the sights we visited was extensive, yet he was able to tailor the explanations to suit the attention span of our 8 and 10 year olds. When compared to other guide companies where I received quotes Egypt Guidelines provided the best value overall, and was willing to organize a unique tour with the major sights and kid-friendly activities like Fagnoon Art Village and KidZania in Cairo plus ATV riding in the desert in Hurgadha. Hedar is a man of integrity, and was also unwilling to plan for activities (e.g. desert camping) that were not recommended for tourists by the Egyptian police and army. Other guide companies that I received quotes from were not as conscientious. If you are planning a trip to Egypt I would recommend that you don't waste your time and energy planning a trip with other guides - Hedar will arrange your trip to exceed your expectations!

Amazing experience! 5 days: 3 in Cairo and 2 in Luxor..
This was my first trip to Egypt and I loved it to bits. I was travelling alone and not for a single moment did I feel unsafe. I am very grateful for my Tour coordinator and also the guides. They all made it a pleasant experience. Everything was well organised and I got to stay at very nice places, food was good and every day was a great learning experience for me. The tour guides were very interactive and made the entire experience pleasant. I look forward to visit Egypt again with my family next time. I am happy I could not only visit the beautiful sites but also ended up making very nice friends. Thank you so much! I wish you all a great time and good luck!

Great job, really
I never wrote one of these reports, but I felt I had to do it because these people really earned it. I just returned from an 8 day trip to Cairo plus Nile cruise and the service provided was not only excellent, but also nice and personal. It is great to feel safe and welcomed in a country with political inestability, although I must say I didn't feel any threat at any time, and I believe the news coverage is exaggerating the situation, as it is the case everywhere. Since I wanted to visit some unusual places I decided to contact an Egyptian agency directly. I only had trip advisor as a reference and I contacted the agency directly through the internet. The choice of the itineray, guides, drivers and boat company (Sonesta, moon goddess boat) was excellent. The only thing that went wrong was the Horizon Pyramids hotel, since the first was too noisy for us Spaniards (not used to Cairo honking traffic), because the rooms that don't face the street were not being used because of the few tourists visiting Egypt these days. But Mohammed Hedar found me a different hotel in a residential area that was just what I needed. (President Hotel) I felt safe and attended the whole trip, because, even though I had a Spanish speaking guide (Mohammed Magdi) and driver, Mohammed Hedar lent us a SIM card to communicate directly with him in case I had any kind of problem. Both Mohammeds were eager to please and adapt to my tastes, and I am really grateful for the experiences they have provided. (A non touristic Cairo)

Excellent Trip - 12 days - Cairo - Nile Cruise - Alexandria
My husband and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary with a trip to Egypt in June this year. We spent a lot of time reading reviews and emailing tour companies back and forth and in the end booked with Egypt Guidelines. Right from the beginning Mohamed was very helpful and responded promptly to our MANY quieries regarding what to include in our tour and where to visit while in Egypt. Mohamed was very knowledgable and excellent company as well, making for great day tours in Cairo. He took us to local places to eat which we enjoyed and also to a local traditional music performance (for locals) which we thoroughly enjoyed and were glad to have experienced something truely authentic. After Cairo we took the overnight train to Aswan where we met our new guide Omar for our Nile Cruise, Omar was fabulous!! Again very knowledgable and fun to spend the day with. When checking us in for our cruise Egypt Guidelines saw that we didn't have the best room so had our room upgraded for us, we had a fabulous view! To finish our visit we spent 3 nights at the Crystal Bay Resort in Hurghada - this was not the original accommodation offered by Egypt Guidelines but when we asked if we could upgrade to this hotel Mohamed rearranged this for us - it was late notice so we really appreciated his effort on this! We were glad we changed because it's a fantastic place to relax after a week of sight-seeing! On the last day we decided to include a one day trip to Alexandria. Because it's so far I wouldn't recommend doing it in one day, if you have a couple of days then I'd say it would be worth it. All in all, a wonderful holiday made care free, entertaining and educational by the excellent tour guides Mohamed and Omar. We hope to return one day and will definitely book again with Egypt Guidelines! Thanks so much Mohamed and Omar it was a holiday that we'll never forget! Carissa and Joe

Egypt Guidelines Tour
Egypt guidelines was a great overall experience. Mohamed and the other guides were very knowledgeable about all the spots we visited. I was there last April and all the guides made me feel very comfortable even during all the things that were going on. They picked me up right at the airport, fed me the entire trip, and could answer any question that I threw at them. Overall it was a life changing experience and I would give it my highest recommendation, I hope to go back again some day.

Wonderful Trip
I went to Egypt in the end of April 2013 all by myselft and I was a little worried because of that. But, since when I got to the airport I had a very friendly support from all guides and assistants from the company "Egypt Guidelines"!!!! They all were very helpful and kind to me, so I can have a nice stay in Egypt. Despite there were just one guide whom had a little trouble with his english, I loved the tours and the history every place has. I can say it was magic!!! I can recomend and trust "Egypt Guidelines", for they made my stay much better then I had imagined!!!!! Thank you!

Amazing day trip to Cairo
We were very lucky to come across Egypt guidelines as they arranged a lovely day trip for us from Sharm el Sheikh to Cairo. Everything went very smoothly from the transfer from our resort to the airport to our meeting at Cairo airport with Mohamed. He was a great tour guide, very friendly and knowledgable. The egyptian museum was fantastic especially the Tutankhamen exhibit. We also enjoyed our lunch at a great restaurant with views of the pyramids. Seeing the pyramids themselves was the highlight of the day. I highly recommend this company for anyone looking to arrange a trip to Cairo.

Once in a life time experience
We were searching the affordable tour in Jan 2013 and came across with Egypt Guidelines. We did the tour during Easter Cairo-Aswan-Luxor-Hurghada for 10 days, it was a good trip. The tour guides and representatives almost everyone were so friendly and have a good manner. Mohamed was very helpful, thoughtful and reliable. On the second day in Cairo I was sick and stayed at the hotel, he called us up 3 times to make sure that I was ok. Communication was also great, clear..if we had any questions just emailed him and he got back to us quickly unless he was doing the tour it would take just few days. Mohamed also followed up the feedback so that he could improve his service even better, which I think it's a good thing that every tour company should do.

High quality tour company at a great price
I live in Cairo and I have many visitors from around the world. I did not find this company until this month and I regret not finding them earlier. Even though I have yet to personally use them, I have booked my family and friends on multiple tours within Cairo, Alexandria and a Nile Cruise. They all rant and rave about Mohamed, their tour guide, due to his knowledge and professionalism. Dealing with him logistically, he is VERY helpful, friendly and will guarantee the most affordable price compared to many of the tour companies I have contacted or used in the past! I highly recommend this company!

Egypt Guidelines - Amazing Experience
My friends and I visited Egypt in October and we were so lucky to have Mohamed facilitating our trip. He went above and beyond to make us feel safe and comfortable and showed us the most amazing sites his country had to offer. He took us to local shows and restaurants, fed us amazing food and supplied us with so much information. Mohamed and his team were incredible. I would highly recommend them to other travellers.

A Fascinating Trip in Egypt
Egypt is on my list for the countries that I wanted to visit. Not the least but the first. And now it came true. I believe that my friend and I were so lucky to have Mohamed and his team in facilitating our tour. With all the brilliant ideas in guiding us for what's the best travel plans that you could treasure at all times at a reasonable rates. The experience was great that anyone would surely come back to the country with Mohamed and his team on the lead. And most of all, I am surely very thankful for Mohamed for the assistance that he rendered during the travel. Way to go!
