Wonderful experience! When I read the other travellers reviews and didn't come across a single negative one I assumed it had been edited! It is simply the case that this is a perfect trip! Maged, our guide was fantastic! We saw so many sites you would never get to see on your own. He always made sure we were happy and suggested sites/activities for our free time, wonderful local sites we never would have found! I always felt safe and never felt alone travelling as a single. Our group got along very well together and so we were able to use our free time to explore. I highly recommend this trip. Egypt is a fascinating country!

We were very pleased with the tour overall and the quality of the trip that we received for the price that we paid. On the whole, everything was nicer (accommodations, transportation, etc.) than we had anticipated. We feel like we got a great deal! We always felt very safe and secure. Also, our tour guide was fantastic and really made the trip for us. We rank our trip as a 10 out of 10 and are currently recommending G Adventures to all of our friends. We will not hesitate to book another tour with G Adventures in the future.

"Egypt Explorer" was the perfect introduction to Egypt, and all the beautiful people. I was concerned about our safely as I was traveling with my daughter and trying to listen to everyones warnings about two females traveling to Egypt alone. With our G Adventures tour guide I always felt very safe and was never concerned. We learned about some amazing history, saw some incredible sites and enjoyed some very hospitable people.

My trip was incredible! There were only 4 people on the tour, but I think that this was positive, as we received a much more personal approach, vs. having 12-15 people in the group.

I've always avoided foreign travel. Afraid i wouldn't be comfortable if I didn't have any control of the language and able to read my way around. But the tour leader made that seem to go away with his great personality and skill to make everyone feel at ease.

"GOOD++" actually. The tour itself was quite good. An excellent tour for the inexperienced travelers and ones who seek a more comfortable environment throughout the trip. Also a great start off point for a first time visit to Egypt. Just blown away with the overwhelming information and the many temples visited.

I had an amazing adventure and a great time. I did things that I never would have thought of on my own so definitely having someone who was more familiar with the area advising you was worth it.

From the moment we landed in Cairo the organization of the tour went like clockwork. The itinerary provided a well thought out and balanced overview of Egypt including almost all of the major attractions with adequate personal time for exploration and experience.
