Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The Bibliotheca architecture is breathtaking and there is a display showing old printing presses in the main library. We arrived at 17:01 and were told that the antiquities museum in the basement had just closed for the day and they weren’t letting more people in. Double check opening hours - the exhibits and collections close before the actual library.

    Nice to visit the icon of Alexandria.
    Good views of the Mediterranean Sea.

    Mostly neat and tidy, but some people were smoking in this historical monument.

    Visited it on the end of the day just before our trip back to Cairo. Well,the palace was closed already for visiting. Interesting gardens and quite a history.Built in 1892 and used for summer residence of King Farouk.
    Beautiful green gardens for summer relax.

    We stopped here to take pics only - did not get to do much exploring. But the road looked lovely! One side had shops/restaurants and the other had the Mediterranean Sea! One can also see the Citadel at Qaitbay in the distance!

    Would have loved to visit in the evening and walk around.

    This is a minute proprtion of the original collection but rival jewellery Art Deco collections in any museums throughout the World

    The building is fabulous ,the floors rival those found iin The Winter Palace of St Petersberg , the stained glass is astonishing ,Italian of course .The bathroom with tiles and glass walk way across tiles with gold embellishment rivals anywhere in the best Palaces .

    this is a nice garden of a huge area, tickets are very cheap, it needs more care from the government, better to be avoided when crowded or in public holidays as it becomes so noisy and uncomfortable by locals

    My visit to Egypt was truly a dream come true. I truly had the time of my life, and in fact I am planning to return next summer! From the moment we walked off of the plane in Cairo, we were taken care of. Yassar one of our guides and all of the drivers are very friendly and kind. Marwa, our first guide in Cairo is truly a fabulous woman. She was so much fun and very knowledgeable about the history of Egypt. I really appreciate the fact that Marwa pointed out food that I could not eat due to allergies.I She also got us some Egyptian rice to take home. Definitely would recommend! I loved the Egyptian dinner and camel ride, as well as going to the Pyramids. Climbing up to the inside the Great Pyramid was incredible!

    Again after flying into Aswan, we were taken care of. Then we met Sam. I have to tell you that he is fabulous! We had so much fun with him. He really did cater to our every need. He is extremely knowledgeable and I loved how he would read us the hieroglyphics wherever we went. If we wanted to go back to ship a little early to rest (because of the extreme heat that week!) Sam adjusted the schedule. We discussed not going to Dendera but instead to see Deir El Medina, and Habu temple. I am so pleased Sam mentioned this because it was breathtaking!! Sam is the very best guide in Luxor and I would recommend him to everyone!
    We also did the three day Nile cruise with The Sonesta Moon Goddess. Beautiful Ship, food was good and staff was super friendly. (Definitely get the massage) Be warned though, the cruise really only sailed one day from Aswan to Luxor, the other two being docked in Aswan one day, and Luxor one day.
    Everywhere we went in Luxor was truly amazing. I am happy we paid extra in the Valley of the Kings for the three extra tombs, Tut, Ramses V,VI, and Seti I. I think the tombs were my favorite of the trip if I had to choose.
    The hotels we stayed at were great, Our stay in Giza was fabulous and the people super friendly. We stayed ( separate from tour ) at the Great Pyramid Inn.Staff was great and the rooms clean, the rooftop restaurant was awesome. etc. The Hilton in Luxor was the best! When we were in the restaurant for dinner, the chef came out of the kitchen and showed me the dishes that I could eat (again due to allergies). The hotel itself is beautiful, including the pool area (no time to enjoy), the staff very accommodating, and the jewelry store was great. I plan to stay there next year when I return, as Luxor is incredible. We also enjoyed the Karnak Temple Light show, it was fun.
    When we flew back into Cairo, we stayed at the Triumph Plaza. Very nice hotel, clean and friendly people. The one thing I didn’t like was the fact that we really didn’t have time to eat breakfast and I wanted to take a few croissants and coffee back up to the room so we could eat while getting ready for our next adventure. The staff there wouldn't even allow me to get a coffee to take up to our room, and told us that we had to use room service, of which we were charged extra for. Not a huge deal as the coffee was cheap, it was just irritating.
    The drivers including Hossam in Cairo and Ahmed in Luxor were great and the very best guides Marwa and Sam! My visit was incredible and life changing. I will return next year!
    This visit was amazing! The Egyptian people are gracious and friendly and at no time did I feel unsafe, and I was traveling with my sister in law. It is sad that due to the Gaza turmoil that this country's tourism is almost at a stand still. That said, we never had to wait in line anywhere!
    I would recommend this company to everyone!

    Ahmed was great. There was a slight mis communication, but he handled the situation with care and professionalism. The Grand Egyptian Museum is amazing! It is not fully opened but we still got to see a lot of the exhibits they have. The architecture of the building is incredible! Worth the visit!

    We had a wonderful tour in the Pyramid of Giza then to Alexandria with our guide in Cairo Mr. Mostafa very friendly and knowledgable. He took a nice photo of us with the places we visited.

    Same in Luxor with our guide Ms. Nana, she enlightened us with the ancient historical places in Luxor. We were really amazed with everything we’ve been/seen in the tour: Hatshepsut, Valley of the Kings, Luxor Temple and the Karnak Temple plus the avenue of sphinx.

    Plus the drivers who drove us safely were very kind and friendly.

    The Cairo at night tour was great!! We had a wonderful tour guide, Manar. She took us to see wonderful sights and was very informative about the history and lifestyle of the Egyptian people. We even had an authentic and very delicious meal! Definitely recommend her, and this tour. Our driver, Tada was also great and got us everywhere safe and sound. All with a smile on his face.

    Dina our tour guide made a long day a great adventure. She has knowledge and charm all in one package.
    Our private tour was a part of a 6 day package with Nice Tour. In the morning were picked up by Mohamed, our great driver who was funny and fabulous. Dina, our favorite tour guide showed us the highlights of Alexandria in a very informative and entertaining manner. They provided a waterfront lunch in a great local restaurant.
