We have just returned from a wonderful weekend break from Cairo. With little time to do things, we wanted to see some of the main sights in Cairo, thus a trip to the Egyptian Museum and the Pyramid. Nessma the customer services
rep. tailor made our requests, with prompt email communication.
On the day of the tour, we were lucky to have the services of Hussam, who provided a very fascinating and informal tour of the must see Egyptian museum with many laughs on the way. Next Day we were again picked up by Hussam and
taken to the pyramids & Saqarra to see these amazing places.

In summary booking through Look at Egypt Tours is a must, a very professional company who make you feel safe around the crazy goings on in
Cairo, a wonderful experience.

We read about Egypt, viewed captions of the place via news media, and dreamed about someday traveling to Egypt. We live in the middle of the Pacific Ocean so for many of us traveling half way around the world is costly. Look at Egypt made our dream come true. Look at Egypt provided a suitable package which met our needs. Before you know it, we elected the 10-day Summarize Ancient Egypt experience.
Upon arrival in Cairo International Airport, Look at Egypt agent met us, assisted us in obtaining our entry visa, collected our bags, and transported us to our Hotel.
Our Tour package included experiencing via air conditioned bus and Nile cruise to major sites in Cairo and Giza (Giza Pyramids, The Great Sphinx, Sakkara Temple, Solar Boat Museum, Egyptian Museum, walk through Old Cairo for the Coptic Hanging Church, and Khan Al Khalili Bazzaars), Aswan (Philae Temple, Aswan Dam, sail Kitchener and Elephantine islands to enjoy sunset at local Nubian Village, great Temple of Abu Simbel), Kom Ombo, Edfu, and Luxor (via Nile Cruise). We were escorted by an Egyptologist throughout our 10 day tour. With an extra free day in Luxor, we opted to add two more sites. We returned to Cairo and prepared to use our 11th day to rest up for our two day air travel home. Instead, we asked our Tour Director, to recommend another experience. He personally escorted us to Cairo city to experience local dining at his favorite restaurant, shopping where locals frequent, and socializing…

Look at Egypt exceeded our expectations. My recommendation is if you want to be non-stressed, be provided with certified Egyptologist guides who are passionate about Egyptian history as well as educators, and excellent personal service, call Look at Egypt.

We were in Egypt from October 12 - 22 of 2013, Egypt had always been my dream vacation & with amazing Look at Egypt Tours it became a spectacular reality.

Look at Egypt tours provided a fantastic experience. Excellent service from Nesma who was very prompt throughout the whole booking process and answered all our questions patiently, representatives Mahfouz and others at
all the airports, hotels. Safe drivers and comfortable transportation.

Superb Egyptologist Suzy had great insights and super passionate about her work. My 13 year old son learnt a lot of Egypt history from her and she made it ton of fun too! In addition to being sweet, warm and articulate, Suzy also is a great
photographer.

Our tour was 11 days filled with many magnificent attractions: Giza Pyramids, Memphis, Saqqara, Egyptian Museum, Islamic and Coptic Cairo, 4 Day Luxury Nile Cruise from Luxor to Aswan with the spectacular temples and tombs of Karnak, Luxor, Valley of the Kings, Medina Habut, Edfu, Kom Ombo, Aswan and Abu Simbel and Dendera and Abydos temples.

I did a great Tour in Egypt with Look at Egypt Tours. It was the most incredible trip, better than I could have ever imagined.

I have always wanted to go see the pyramids and all the beautiful things Egypt has to offer. Our tour guide was the best, He was very knowledgeable in Egyptian history and answered all of our questions. He also, always made sure everyone was having a great time and made us feel welcome and like part of the family.

I went with my family. Not once during the entire trip did I feel unsafe. Egypt is so beautiful and if it is on your list of places to go than you definitely should go! We visited the pyramids, many temples, sailed on the Nile River.

Look at Egypt tours and everyone that worked for them were just incredible, kind, organized, helpful and took care of everything, from arriving at the airport, during the entire trip, and getting back to the airport, they didn’t miss any details.
