"Unforgetable Trip That I Shall Remember For The Rest Of My Life!" I was in Egypt for the first time two years ago. And I liked it so much that I've decided to definitely return to this amazing country for the second time. Well, the first time I was there with a travel agency from my country and a group of 25 people. It was a classic Nile cruise with Hurghada and Cairo. It was OK, but I wanted more! I really wanted to feel the life in Egypt and the people, I wanted to know it from the first hand. It is difficult to do that in a large group, so I decided to take this trip with my best friend, just the two of us. Because we weren't that confident to go on our own we decided to look on the internet for a local tourist company. Finally we both agreed to go with the company Egypt Fun Tours. Their response to our e-mail was very quick and very professional. So we started to arrange the possible itineraries for our trip. Because we had only 10 days for the whole trip and a lot of MUSTs to go to and see the itinerary was quite a challenge. But the staff from Egypt Fun Tours was very helpful and they had no problem to adapt to our wishes or to advise us. On the contrary they helped us to make the plan even better that we imagined it would be. We wrote our plan and they quickly replied with the best solutions. At the end we made an itinerary that fitted in the 10 days we'd got for our trip. The Egypt Fun Tours also did all the reservations for the hotels, the sleeper train that we used and other transportation. The only thing we had to do is buy an airplane ticket via Egypt.
For all the ten days Egypt Fun Tours provided us with a professional guide that was with us all the time of our trip. His name was Mohammad and he waited for us at the Cairo airport. He was very friendly, had a lot of knowledge and a lot of experience as a guide. He gave us a lot of good advice, for example: how much to give for a tip, or how to bargain to get a good price. We became quite experts at the end and we really started to enjoy it. He was by far the best guide I have ever had a chance to meet. And I can say the same for my best friend. Thanks to him, we learned a lot about ancient and present Egypt, and even now I remember his enthusiasm when he was telling us stories about the old Egyptian gods when we were sightseeing the temples...
In ten days we have been from North (Cairo) to very South of Egypt (Aswan, Abu Simbel, Luxor), from the heart of the Sahara (Baharya oasis and the White desert) to the Red sea (Hurghada). We slept under the stars in the desert, snorkelled in the Red sea, and sailed with a boat on the magical river Nile. On the one hand we drove with a private van with all the luxury and on the other hand »squeezed« in a stuffed train with the locals and even more... Why? Because we wanted it so!! These were all our MUSTs and Egypt Fun Tours made it happen!! We definitely felt Egypt and its people and we will be forever grateful to the company for that. Special thanks to our guide Mohammad, who really tried to present his country and succeeded in his attempt. He was always kind and if we wanted to change some sightseeing he made it happen. This trip wouldn't be the same without him. Shokran!
If you don't like those typical programmes that travel agencies usually offer, my advice would be: make your own trip plan with Egypt Fun Tours! They did it for us and I am sure they can do it for you too!p.s. I have another trip around Egypt in mind and without any hesitation I am going to take it with Egypt Fun Tours!
