We can’t say enough wonderful things about KimKim’s team and all their personal touches that made our trip to Egypt wonderful! Ibrahim and Amr made our trip to Egypt from the beginning process of designing it, to getting us home safely, seamless and stress free! Amr helped create our dream trip to Egypt from Cairo seeing the Great Pyramid’s to cruising the Nile, visiting all the temples to swimming in the Red Sea in Hurghada. They were patient and very flexible with accommodating our every wish (and we changed them several times!).

When our daughter tripped and broke her ankle in the Valley of the Kings, they went above and beyond to get us doctors, x-rays, a cast and of course a wheelchair and crutches for everywhere we went! A special thank you to Mohamed Kamal, our guide during that difficult time taking such good care of us!

When we thought our trip was going to be cut short, KimKim’s team once again seamlessly took care of everything and we were able to finish our cruise of the Nile, visit all the amazing temples, from Edfou all the way to Abu Simbel to swimming in the Red Sea in Hurghada.

Ibrahim and Amr’s handpicked teams were truly excellent in their knowledge of history and their abilities to take care of all our needs. From meeting us at the airport and expediting visas and immigration (thank you Mahmoud!) to navigating doctors for our daughter in Luxor, to teaching us the history of Egypt, and finally getting us home safely with those much-needed COVID tests results in time for our departure! We always felt safe and well taken care of!

The KimKim team was truly excellent! Nour our guide in Cairo; Mohamed Kamal on our cruise and in Aswan; Zain who helped us to Hurghada and a very special thanks to Amr for putting it all together!

Thank you everyone for the wonderful and incredible trip and the lifelong memories and friends we made!

Returned home from an EPIC journey to Egypt. ... · Egypt - May 12 - May 23, 2021

Traveler: Nick R. - Local specialist: Ibrahim Elaref

Returned home from an EPIC journey to Egypt. Amr & Ibrahim helped plan an amazing trip for me and my wife for our 11th anniversary and it was one of the best trips we have every taken. I rarely use trip planning services as I like to do most of the work myself but with this trip, everything was executed perfectly. No wasted time. Perfect mix of sightseeing and relaxation. Would HIGHLY recommend this service to anybody wanted to visit Egypt and maximize their time in country.

What can I say? This trip was truly magnificent and everything I dreamed Egypt would be. Safe, secure and incredibly tailor made just for us. The customer service was exemplary and our guide was a master Egyptologist, Mohamed. He has a true passion for his people’s history and an incredible educational background as well. We started in Luxor on a cruise aboard the Senesta St George Nile Cruise boat. It was absolutely magical cruising along the Nile. Very clean, well appointed and lots and lots of food! Luxor itself is so jam packed with ruins that it would take months to see them all. We were able to see a few and the highlight for us was Karnak temple. Awe inspiring is the only way to describe it. Mohammed thoughtfully showed us the important aspects of each ruin. We learned how to decipher some hieroglyphics and also speak some Arabic with him. We went to Valley of the Kings, Valley of the Queens, Kom Ombo Temple and many more with Mohammed as our guide. It was an absolute pleasure. We have a friend for life in Luxor, Egypt now. Anyone from age 6-96 would love a tour with him. Next we went back to Cairo and visited the pyramids of Giza and it was truly surreal. All of our accommodations were beautiful. We were whisked from destination to destination with a private driver, security and guide. We even had a coordinator at the airport. Our coordinator spoke English and Spanish which was great too! As someone that usually plans their own trips and does everything by themselves it was a breath of fresh air to have EVERYTHING done for us. At the end of our trip, Sherif, the owner, even came by our hotel to meet us. What a gentleman. Loved this trip with all our hearts! ❤️🇪🇬🇺🇸❤️ Thank you Sherif, Dunes and Beyond, Mohamed and all the people that served us with the utmost care in this trip.

Memorable multi-day trip to Luxor and Cairo to learn about Egyptian civilization · Egypt - Sep 30 - Oct 4, 2020

Traveler: Ioana T. - Local specialist: Ibrahim Elaref

Ibrahim and his team organized a custom 4 day trip for our family of 5 (myself, husband and children ages 17, 10, 10)--pick-up from Hurghada, then Luxor 2 days, flight to Cairo where we stayed 2 days. Great care and excellent organization throughout the trip. What we liked the best:

Ibrahim and his team organized a custom 4 day trip for our family of 5 (myself, husband and children ages 17, 10, 10)--pick-up from Hurghada, then Luxor 2 days, flight to Cairo where we stayed 2 days. Great care and excellent organization throughout the trip. What we liked the best:
• Very knowledgeable and friendly guides---both Ahmed and Nour were excellent, really enjoyed their stories & description of sites visited.
• Drivers & cars were also very good and felt safe driving with them throughout the 4 days.
• Luxor sites selection was excellent—we liked everything—the tombs, the temples and the museum.
• The Sofitel Winter palace hotel was a very memorable experience, I had a very special feeling after staying at that hotel.
• In Cairo---the pyramides and the Sphinx tours were great as well
• The addition of the park / botanical garden on Sunday was really nice---we enjoyed very much spending the Sunday afternoon there.
• I liked the visits to stone and perfume shops in Luxor and Papyrus shop in Cairo----in the future, would be great the guides to mention these upfront as well as coach against vendors over selling at the historic sites prior to us arriving there

What I did not like so much:
• The trip to Fayoum was not worth the time---when you present it as the offer it would be helpful in the future to say how long the drive would be, as I thought much shorter distance based on no. of km. While it was quite nice to see the waterfall in the desert, it was not worth the drive.
• The cruise on the river Nile in the last night----atmosphere was OK, but we were the only tourists with the rest of the boat local people. The biggest challenge was covid risk---if I knew the boat was indoors with many people we would have not done it.

What should be done differently next time:
• Might be good to include some of the dinners in the organized package, otherwise, we would be forced to only eat in the evening at the hotel, which is not so interesting. So offering the meal add-ons as a choice might be taken up by many people
• It would have been good to know ahead of time that you have this very strict bureaucracy of reporting the trip to the tourism police and thus no changes can be made---if we knew that, we maybe have spent more time before finalizing the schedule to confirm exactly what we want and what we did not want in the trip (eg visit of the citadel or mosques etc)
• It was a bit scary and unnerving to have the armed security in the car with the police car following us everywhere. Again, learning this before the trip would have been helpful---in the first night went travelling from Hurghada to Luxor I was quite scared whether a terrorist attack warning was issued as I did not expect all the security. Later we got used to it and felt quite good to have all this security attention on us.

Trip of a Lifetime to Egypt and Jordan and # 1 Bucket Item Destination, Petra · Egypt - Feb 2 - Feb 11, 2020

Traveler: Sara P. - Local specialist: Ibrahim Elaref

I had pretty much planned out my trip to Egypt and Jordan on my own, when I decided to contact kimkim to see what assistance might be available. I had used kimkim to help plan a trip to Myanmar which was incredible -far beyond my expectations - and so I decided to use kimkim again for on the ground support in Egypt and Jordan.

I had pretty much planned out my trip to Egypt and Jordan on my own, when I decided to contact kimkim to see what assistance might be available. I had used kimkim to help plan a trip to Myanmar which was incredible -far beyond my expectations - and so I decided to use kimkim again for on the ground support in Egypt and Jordan.

I am so glad I did - everything went like clockwork. From the moment we were picked up at the airport in Luxor until we were deposited at the airport in Amman at the end of the trip, it was an incredible journey. Our guide for the Luxor to Aswan portion of the trip, Mahmoud, was terrific. His vast knowledge of Egyptian mythology and history was inspiring and we very much appreciated his guidance and willingness to share with us what life in Egypt is like today for the people who live here.

Likewise with our guide Hisham in Cairo - and here I would like to put in special thanks for Hisham and the other support staff in Cairo. I managed to contract the dreaded TD for a couple of days in Cairo and the support I received was fantastic, from constant checking in to make sure I was okay, help in obtaining antibiotics and the like. Egypt was far more interesting and exciting with the support of Ibrahim and his colleagues than it would have been on our own.

We then flew to Amman, also with the help of Ibrahim. We were met at the Amman airport and whisked through border control like celebrities. The next morning, we met our guide and driver, Abou, whose support was priceless. We talked about what we wanted to do and he strongly suggested that we alter our plans to include an overnight stay in Petra, which we were able to do and which greatly enhanced that experience. Again, Abou's willingness to share with us his life, and what it is like to be Jordanian, greatly enhanced our experience.

Thanks to everyone who helped us along our two weeks in Egypt and Jordan - it was exactly what we wanted, and more.
