Safari anyone?? We were so fortunate to always have an amazing driver, tour coordinator and Egyptologist, but were also given the freedom to explore independently and enjoy family/relaxation time at our hotels. Sherif's accommodation recommendations were superb; there is literally not one thing we would change. Traveling to Egypt is exciting but intense and there is no way our trip would have been successful without him - his customer service is truly impeccable! Additional appreciation to Lina Salah, Ahmed Shazly and Tamer and Mostafa who shared their vast knowledge with us, we truly feel like we made new friends! Also, to Ahmed Abd Rabu and Shehab Saniusy for getting us where we needed to be, always quickly and safely! There are so many more to thank, we truly appreciate everyone who helped make our trip the best it could be! Last but not least, our Nile Cruise on the Merit Dahabiya was an experience like no other, another great find by Sherif!
Bottom line, if you are looking for safe, fun and unforgettable adventure in Egypt, look no further, you will not be disappointed!

Now that we've completed our whirlwind trip around Egypt, I am glad to provide a review for an excellent company - Egypt Promotions, that helped us design the tour, provided local services and were our week-long companions in this interesting country.

Once submitting an interest via KimKim, the system put me together with Ibrahim. And from the first minute of speaking to him, I knew he'd be a perfect person to help me with a tour.

I presented Ibrahim with arduous task - fit 6-7 major regions into a 6-night tour. Ibrahim took on the challenge and came up with ambitions plan that, once realized, allowed me to fulfill my dream to fully explore Egypt.

Ibrahim's company provided excellent and skilled drivers, clean cars with working a/c (dust doesn't count - this is Egypt); and supplied guides. Regardless of time of arrival, we were always met at the airport and promptly driven to hotels, which were all EXCELLENT and also either booked or recommended by Ibrahim.

Because of seemingly unrealistic schedule, tight deadlines, multiple inter-country flights, etc., I am really thankful to Ibrahim and his team for making sure our trip ran like a clock.

Separately, we wanted to note an amazing guide that accompanied us on our first day in Cairo - Khaled. He was superbly knowledgeable, passionate for his country, had deep appreciation for history and magically made Ancient Egypt come alive to us. Really a wonderful introduction to a country.

However, the guide that accompanied us for the remainder of the trip (to Luxor, Aswan, Edfu, and Kom Ombo), Mr. Ez, was complete opposite. Unfortunately, his English was very limited and we often had trouble understanding him, which forced him to frustratingly (for us and for him) repeat same things multiple times. He mainly provided limited bare facts - years, names - and pointed out few things. We had to lean on nearby tour groups to listen to their guides' explanations. He also never even tried to keep the hustlers away from us so we constantly found ourselves being surrounded by aggressive sales people trying to push their stuff or asking for photos. On conclusion of our first day with him, we specifically asked him: "Will we see you again?" He replied, "No." Relieved, we happily paid him his tip and said Good-Bye. To our astonishment, we discovered the next morning that he was joining us for the remainder of the tour. Otherwise, we would have begged Ibrahim to replace the guide before it was too late. Instead, we ended up looking up facts online trying to understand things we were exploring, which I found unacceptable, given the reputation of the company, and my overall satisfaction with them.

Aside from the above, everything else provided by Egypt Promotion was wonderful. I would never forget our magic time cruising on a felucca down the Nile and watching sunset - the idea recommended by Ibrahim, in lieu of a show that was pre-booked but cancelled at the last minute. Overall, I can't think of a better company that could show us Egypt, only wish that I could timely avert having to deal with Mr. Ez for extended period of time.

Without hesitation, I would recommend Egypt promotion to anyone planning a trip to Egypt.

Thank you, Ibrahim and KimKim for this great adventure!

This was an amazing once in a lifetime experience. Perfect mix of relaxation, thrills and learning new things. There were some issues along the way but this is Africa (I lived there 10 years so I know) and the team handled it great. The tour guides (Hesham and Muhammed) were simply amazing. Funny, knowledgeable, and friendly. Couldn’t have asked for more. The night in the desert was absolutely amazing. I would recommend this outfit to anyone. We returned home and talk about things that happened on this trip often. Very reasonable pricing for what you get.

Tour guides Khaled and Ahmad were so knowledgeable and kind. They made us feel comfortable throughout our time there. We learned so much!

The accommodations were decent but could have been improved a little. We had issues with our keys throughout, for some inexplicable reason. The room we stayed in at the Hilton was a little old and could have used an update. The Nile cruise room was lovely but could have used a little extra touches to make it even better. But neither of these things detracted from our stay or experience! (although the key thing was definitely very annoying) The staff at the Hilton and the MS Semiramis Nile Cruise were absolutely fabulous. Such a wonderful group of people who were extremely kind and happy to help out. And the food was amazing! The chefs were so accommodating (both for coeliac and vegetarian concerns) and we ate extremely well throughout our trip.

I would absolutely recommend the Egypt Promotion Travel team to everyone!

He joined in the boat festivities, made sure we were able to see everything we wanted to at each stop and coordinated everything needed for each tour. He was extremely knowledgeable but also a great photographer and helped us add on a few additional things to make our trip complete, like a hot air balloon ride. We really enjoyed getting to know him, he took great care of us while on the Nile cruise.

One huge win right out of the gate was the Dunes & Beyond representative, Ahmed, who met us at the airport. While others were standing in very long lines to get their visa, we were quickly taken care of by him, and to the car in minutes.

For the Cairo portion of our trip we had a driver and an Egyptologist with us for our daily excursions. Mohamed, our driver, has the skills you want in a Cairo driver. He was safe and able to navigate the chaos well!! The vehicle was clean and stocked with water. My husband pointed out that every time we got back to the car our dirty feet marks were even cleaned up. Above and beyond.
Lina was very knowledgeable about all things Egypt, and provided the right level of commentary as we toured the sites. She was well organized and we enjoyed her conversation! She gave us the detail you would never have through a group tour. I would not recommend doing this trip without a driver and Egyptologist. We talked to other travelers who did and found that we had a superior experience.

Petra in Jordan was for sure the highlight of that portion. We didn't realize how huge the Petra area is, and spent hours hiking through all the ruins.

Amman is one place we wish we had more time to explore. There is a lot to see close to and in town - Jerash, the Citadel and Madaba etc. - and we could have used at least another day to roam the markets and city center.

Overall we would highly recommend Kimkim and Sherif to others, and already have!

The itinerary planned was met in full - Great service!
Even though the planning was based on a baseline itinerary found in KimKim, the local specialist helped us adjusting it to our timeframe and interests, with not many fillings that could take us away from our main sites of interest.
In addition, the guides were knowledgeable on the history to explain in detail, some times we got lost in the many names of gods or the different timelines, but is just a lot of information to capture in 2 weeks of ancient history.
We started our trip in Cairo, where we were welcomed by Mahmoud just after deplaning, who helped us to smoothly clear immigration and customs. We travel extensively for work and leisure and we believe we can move around airports and cities with minimal directions, but don't take lightly the help the tour operators and local guides provide in Egypt, is not an easy country no navigate unless you are local.
We had two guides in Cairo, Mostafa and Khalet, very funny guys, they did a thorough explanation of all Egypt history, but also adding context of the findings, the impact in the region and world development. They were also very polite to introduce the fillings to every tour, like the papyrus museum, to make it fully optional, not mandatory as other tour operators do...
After Cairo and Alexandria, the latter is not fully recommended unless you have extra time, we travel south to Aswan, where we met our guide Ahmed, very knowledgeable person, but tour guides in this highly touristic area seem to be more pushy on the filling tours, and are more expectant on adding extra activities to the itinerary, which we didn't like so much as it was very obvious and constant.
The tipping culture was not new to us, coming from the US, but the freedom of tipping for good service is universal, sometimes it felt compulsory even for not so good service....
After visiting Aswan, Abu Simbel, Luxor and in between, we returned to Cairo, and once again, were welcomed by Mahmoud, who was attentive of keeping us in line with our tour schedule until he left us at the airport checked in for our flight to Amman.
In Amman we were welcomed by the tour operator at the airport, even though it was way easier to navigate compared to Cairo's, and then met Ahmad, our driver for all the tours in Jordan.
Even though Ahmad is not a tour guide, he knows all the places to visit, and helped us meet our itinerary including the guides for the sites that required further explanation like Jerash and Petra. He helped us coordinate everything in the itinerary in Jordan, and this was a very good surprise as we didn't have high expectations about Jordan, only for Petra, but Amman, the surroundings, the desert and the dead sea were great additions to our trip. Including that Jordan is more organized and less chaotic than Egypt, so it was a good comparison of cultures within the Middle East.
In summary, we had a great time, we didn't have issues, we never felt unease or that we didn't meet the expectation of our summer vacation. We fully recommend KimKim, I personally don't like tours, I rather do my own sightseeing, but I have also learned that some places are better leveraged with local help, and that is what we found valuable of the connections KimKim provide, beyond the platform that was super easy to connect, communicate and fulfill our travel plans.

In 10 days we managed to see the Suez Canal, pyramids/sphinx, the high dam, take a 4 day Nile cruise, saw so about 15 different temples and burial sites from Aswan to Luxor, spent a day and a bit in Alexandria seeing catacombs, the library and forts, spent a day and a half driving through oases and the desert with camping in the middle of the desert and finally ended back in Cairo for an evening before heading home.

All in all it was a trip and coordinated effort among many people in each location that we could never have pulled off on our own and KimKim made it all seamless and incredibly enjoyable. Company representatives constantly checked to ensure everything was good with our trip and accommodation, the Egyptologists who gave us the tours were incredibly knowledgeable and adapted to whatever we wanted to do with our time, and anything we asked about was “consider it done”

We rarely use travel agencies versus doing our own thing when we reach a destination, but in a country like Egypt where there is so much to see, time management is critical and we do not speak the language at all, having KimKim and Egypt Promotions work with us was absolutely the way to go.

Thank you to everyone involved in our trip. You all made it extremely special, memorable and we want to come back and when we do we will absolutely work through this company again.

We contacted Kimkim to help plan a 10-day stay in Egypt only a month before our departure date. Despite the short notice, it was an amazingly perfect adventure for four adults. Upon arrival in Cairo, Mahmoud Hashem, our local liaison provided assistance at customs and escorted our party of four to our hotel via private transport. We were happy to have such a warm and thoughtful welcome after several long flights.

Our first day, we explored the pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx with our charming and well-informed guide Mohamed Abu Elmagd. The following day we spent several hours in the Egyptian Museum before heading to Aswan via plane. We had an amazing three nights at the historic Old Cataract Hotel and explored the Temple at Philae and the remarkable Abu Simbel. A sunset felucca ride on the Nile was a lovely break from the heat of the day. Mohamed was warm and knowledgeable about history, local customs, and geography. His advice and assistance was greatly appreciated on several shopping excursions. He kept us on schedule but also allowed us to modify our plans based on our interests and energy levels. We could not have asked for a kinder or more enjoyable companion.

From Aswan we travelled to Luxor via private van. En route we visited Kom Ombo and learned about the crocodile-headed Sobek followed by a stop at Edfu and the marvelous temple of Horus. At Luxor we checked into the Winter Palace and over the next three days explored the unearthly Valley of the Kings, the monumental Temple of Amun at Karnak, the splendor of the Temple of Luxor, and the amazingly colored temple of Hathor at Dendarah.

We returned to Cairo via plane to attend the conference that was the original reason for our trip. Despite the heat of June, this was a dream excursion. We had a lovely guide, excellent drivers, and KimKim liaisons to meet us at each crossroad to make sure our trip was going as planned. The Egyptian people were warm, easily amused, and engaging. One’s view of history will be forever changed by their monuments, tombs, and temples. The beauty and magnificence of this early and amazing civilization makes an unforgettable impression. Every experience was breathtaking. I say that without exaggeration.

Kimkim’s suggestions and staffing via the local travel agency, Egypt Promotion Travel, were excellent. I would also like to add that this was a very affordable trip in relation to the USD. We stayed at 5-star hotels along with private transport drivers and guides at more than reasonable prices—possibly because we were traveling during the beginning of summer. Both the Old Cataract and the Winter Palace have historic architecture, large rooms, great AC, big pools, amazing service, and views of the Nile. Highly recommended.

The level of professionalism was extremely impressive. No detail was left undone; 5 stars in every respect. If you are considering travel I highly recommend using Kimkim. Sharif and everyone else involved, and my sincere apologies if I have unintentionally left out anyone, - Ahmed, Mustafa our wonderful Egyptologist in Abu Simbel, Mohammed who was one of our drivers, Mohammad our escort in Aswan, Mohammed our wonderful Egyptologist who accompanied us on our Nile River Cruise, Waleed, Adile, and Nesrine our wonderful Egyptologist in Cairo, along with all of the other incredibly warm and welcoming Egyptian people we met along the way created an amazing experience with memories that my family and I will never forget.

First let me just say that this trip was great. There's no other way to put it, and our guides Muhammad, Muhammad, Mamoud and Mustafa were all amazing.

Muhammad 1 who took us through the temples in Aswan and Luxor was very animated and knew the history backwards and forwards. We really felt like we truly knew Egyptian history by the time he was done with us, and his passion for it made it more fun.

Mamoud whipped us through the airports like a champ weaving us in and out and making sure we were all set on our flights. I don't know that we would have gotten where we need to go without him to be honest! And the fact that he was a local helped us get through security checkpoints faster. He was also a smiling face when we got off the first plane super late in the evening, so he really helped set the tone for the trip and did an awesome job.

Muhammad 2 spoke English about as good as Rob and I and really helped us to learn about the culture more. He was awesome, funny and down to earth, and we really feel like we made a friend in him. He also knew a lot of history and was our guide for one of my most favorite experiences ever on a trip to date, camping in the White Desert. Ask him about the UFO's we saw there... :D

Mustafa was also super! He drove through the Black and White Desert sand like the pro that he is, and while it was very exhilarating (I may or may not have screamed a couple times lol) I somehow felt very safe with him. He was calm, nice and could sing and play instruments well too, which he did for us while camping!! Loved it so much. He was also a really great cook! I prob gained 10 lbs from his food alone. Lol

Overall, the great great memories made on this trip will stick with us for a lifetime. Seeing all the ancient sites and temples, flying in a hot air balloon over Egypt (What!!??), riding camels around the pyramids, camping in the White Desert (absolute fave!!), cruising down the Nile and meeting some of the greatest people ever was worth every penny spent! 10/10 trip.

My boyfriend and I had the pleasure of booking our trip through KimKim for our recent 9 day trip to Egypt. We just returned and wanted to express how grateful we are for the team and everything they did for us. Not only did they adjust the trip and fine tuned it to my exact needs and requirements, but they dealt with my million questions along the way lol. First of all, the trip started with Mahmoud meeting us as soon as we stepped off the airplane in Cairo before we even hit baggage or customs. From there, it was a flawless < 20 minute experience to get from the plane to the car and we couldn’t have done it without his help. We were driven through the insane traffic of Cairo with ease to our first hotel where they dropped us at the door and ensured all was well. We communicated the entire time through WhatsApp and each day the next days plan was laid out.
Our first 2.5 days were with Mohammad, who was not only an incredibly knowledgeable guide but was kind and funny. We saw the Pyramids and Mohammad Ali mosque on day one, followed by some amazing local schwarmma sandwiches. We went to a handful of souvenir stores where we got to purchase some awesome, government certified souvenirs special to Egypt. I got to ride a camel at the pyramids too! Pickup was prompt and everything was safe, fun, and easy.
The next day we were picked up promptly for a long drive out to the desert where we stopped partway to have a traditional Bedouin lunch which was cooked by our guide and drive Achmed, who stayed with us the entire time. His desert driving skills were unmatched and took us to the best sightseeing places. Then we settled into the White Desert for a night of campfire cooking, tea, and sleeping in the sand. It was incredible and delicious and we never felt unsafe.
The next day we said goodbye to Mohammad and Achmed and we’re driven to the airport for our flight to Luxor. Again - all planned out well and prompt. We were met at the airport with ease for pickup to our hotel in Luxor.
We got a call that night directly to our hotel saying the hot air balloon ride we had planned for the next day was cancelled due to weather, and they had already adjusted our itinerary and booked us a new balloon ride for the following day with no stress.
We were picked up by Ahmed for a full day of Luxor sightseeing. He was knowledgeable and kind and left us to explore on our own a bit which we enjoyed. He took tons of photos and we had a wonderful day.
The next morning we were promptly picked up at 345am for the hot air balloon ride, which we got to via Nile river boat (fun and unexpected!). This was also very easy and professional and hands down the best part of our trip.
We were taken back to our hotel after to pack our bags and get picked up for our drive to Hurghada, which was prompt and easy. Once we arrived they checked us in and arranged hotel pickup and PCR tests for that Saturday that we were leaving.
When we were picked up Saturday it was prompt with easy quick drive to the airport. That night when we were picked up from the airport, Mahmoud picked us up again and had a doctor waiting for us at the airport for PCR test which was done quickly. We had the results send to us via WhatsApp a few hours later and they were totally acceptable for return to the USA.
Overall we legitimately had no snags the entire time and with the language barrier between English and Egyptian Arabic, we quite literally couldn’t have done this trip without the KimKim team. It was a perfect trip and we will definitely use them in the future for other trips.

Sherif was understanding and patient in extending the trip and regularly checking with us to see if we were ready to schedule. Excellent and prompt communication before the trip, so we had all the information we needed.
Now to the trip itself. We were met at Cairo airport by Dunes rep Mr Ahmed. He met us really close to where we got off the plane and whisked us through getting a visa and getting out of the airport (basically, VIP service!). Then by a/c van to the Nile Kempinski hotel in the Cairo garden district. Mr Ahmed stayed with us until our rooms were assigned and we knew what to expect the next morning. This was a pattern everywhere. Dunes staff (and Sherif via WhatsApp) constantly checked on us and made sure we were completely taken care of. Everywhere we went, we had a comfortable a/c van. Pretty much everything was pre-paid and taken care of --- especially important for tickets at the various sites.
We had two expert guides --- Ms Nesrine in Cairo and Mr Alaa on our nile cruise. Both were excellent -- friendly, very well informed, with decades of experience, and who explained the history and significance of the things we saw. We were traveling as a family with our two adult children, and both of them were great at relating to everyone across generations.
I left the trip planning entirely to Sherif and he picked a great itinerary for us. First two days in Cairo for us to see the pyramids and sphinx and the Egyptian museum. Then flight to Aswan to get on a Nile cruise to Luxor. By choosing to start in Aswan and end in Luxor, we staged it perfectly so that we ended with the amazing Karnak and Luxor temples.
Sherif had advised us to upgrade to the Sonesta St George ship and I'm glad we did --- the ship was comfortable, the staff were incredibly friendly and the food was terrific. We are vegetarians, so the chefs went out of their way to get us some special options during the sit down dinners. The buffet had a ton of vegetarian options anyway, but I think Sherif had told them in advance, and so we got special treatment.
Finally, Dunes sent a travel coordinator to take us from the cruise ship to Luxor airport and onto our plane, then at the Cairo airport, we were met again by Mr Ahmed and escorted to the airport hotel as we had to stay overnight to catch our flight out of Egypt. Sherif also organized someone to come to our hotel to give us a covid test for our travel, and updated me regularly until we had the results.
Overall, this was top-notch service. Dunes took care of our every need. More importantly, they anticipated every potential need and took care of it for us. I rarely write reviews but this time I am because I am super-impressed by this excellent team of travel professionals who made our Egypt trip special.

Our accommodation was mostly first-class - especially the Kempinski in Cairo and the Old Cataract in Aswan. The only slightly disappointing one was the Ghaliat Eco-Lodge in Siwa. Firstly everything was served on single-use plastic - cups, plates, cutlery etc - but also it had nothing in the way of facilities - no bar, no WiFi, no hair-dryer, no ice etc etc. while it was relaxing, three nights was more than enough there.
Our main guide, Mohammad Shaarawy was outstanding - very knowledgeable on everything and had perfect English. He was also excellent company. Our main driver, also Mohammad, was equally outstanding and there was plenty of room on our mini-bus.
Our guide in Upper Egypt was not so outstanding- very heavily accented English and not as knowledgeable on Egyptology. Also he seemed to mess up on our plans for a hot-air balloon ride in Luxor, which we eventually could not take.
The Sonesta St. George boat was superb and we were very happy with the service, food and comfort.
Our airport collections and transfers worked very smoothly and the only change we would make again is to allow an extra day for this itinerary as it was really full-on most of the time.
We wanted to cover as much ground as possible and thus visited Cairo, Aswan, Abu Simbel, Nile Cruise, Luxor, Alexandria, El Alamein and Siwa all in a two-week period.
The highlights for us were going inside the Pyramids, Abu Simbel, Karnak Temple, Valley of Kings, the amazing Alexandria Bibliotheque, and the great Siwa Oasis
Overall we had a memorable trip and learned so much from the really informative guides and were very happy with the service provided by Egypt Promotions Ltd

Both of our tour guides, Mohammad Kamal and Noor, were respectful, professional, and extremely knowledgeable about the various sites we visited across Egypt. They answered any question that we had and we learned a lot about Egyptian and Jordanian history and culture from them.

One of the highlights of our experience was when we visited a small village along the Nile river. We met some of the families there and enjoyed their hospitality. Additionally, the night we spent camping and star gazing in the White Desert was an experience we enjoyed very much.

Overall, this was a phenomenal trip and we will definitely be planning more trips through Kimkim in the future!

Highlights: The Museum of Egyptian Civilizations builds a narrative of the pharoahs through their mummies while putting pyramids and pharoahs into the context of Egypt's rich and varied cultural history.
Nothing I had read or seen in museums prepared me for the overwhelming artisstic experience inside the tombs in the Valley of the Kings.

The entire time I felt very safe and taken care of. The guides pick you up from each airport and hotel. The shuttles were large and air conditioned. They even arranged a doctor to come to your hotel or wherever you are to take a Covid-19 test with the proper requirements on your travel home.

Tour guide for Cairo and Alexandria- Tito was knowledgeable and flexible. Good at communicating local customs and helping us with checkpoints and helping us to feel at ease.

Tour guide for Aswan, Nile Cruise and Luxor-Mustafa was and is the best tour guide we’ve ever experienced. All should take lessons from him. He’s personable, knowledgeable and asks questions to be sure we were getting the very tour WE desired, not necessarily the tour listed in the agenda. He understands local culture and customs and asks questions to gage the comfort levels and desires of his guests. He made us feel like true family. He is a true gem.

Tour guide in travel from Luxor to Hurghada was young and quite inexperienced. We were placed in a precarious position because of this. He should be training with a more experienced guide. He left us physically alone during and after a chaotic incident with a local bathroom attendant at the “rest stop”. 2 Americans who know NO Arabic, angry merchants with no other tourists around -alone for 45+ minutes, with only 2 brief checks to say “it’ll be 10 more minutes” and leave. Our other tour guides had the experience and knowledge to NEVER do this. It was frightening.

Otherwise, the people, staff were very accommodating and helpful. Always pleasant and seemed to truly desire that we had a wonderful time at each location. Even the events that were not coordinated well, were taken in stride and light hearted. Overall, one of the best experiences we’ve encountered.

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.

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.

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.

Had a really great trip. enjoyed it immensely. Definitely would recommend. to others. If I could make one suggestion though. It would be great if the local guides had a cooler on their cars with cold water in it. At many of the less touristy sites it was very hot when we went and there was no place to even buy cold beverages. Would be nominal cost but would make the trip much better

The accommodations were first rate, and we received a double upgrade at the Four Seasons at Sharm el Sheikh. Dalia was our favorite guide. The Egyptian Museum is probably incomprehensible without a knowledgeable guide like her, and we really appreciated her efforts to face us as she spoke instead of speaking to the windshield of the vehicle as at least one of our greeters did. It was also nice that she was very attentive to us and minimized conversations on the phone while she was with us. Our trip was a great value and a great experience.

Our local specialist Ibrahim definitely knows the best places and thills of Egypt as we feel we didn't miss any! Thank you! Out local tour guide in Cairo, Islam was so knowledgeable and invested in ensuring we had a great time, while making sense of everything from the monuments, traffic and local food. Our driver Mohammed was a great expert too as we moved quite abit in Cairo, to the east and west. We went south by train and later with tour vans. They navigated through busy streets while making it on time always.

Our visit to Bahariya was awesome, as we were amazed at all the water coming out of the ground in the desert! We visited some date fields and tasted some! The white and black deserts are a must-experience if one has never been to a desert like us! The camping overnight was so peaceful, majestic and quiet! It was probably our best part of the visit. Our area guide Ashraf was so knowledgable of the area, a great 4x4 driver and an excellent cook as well!!

The only snags we noted seem to be part of the culture - talking on the phone while driving, occasional non use of safety belts and smoking. However no one smoked in our midst. By and large everyone from the beginning like Zain and others was courteous and helpful and made our time in Egypt memorable! Thank you!

Experiencing the pyramids and temples were obvious highlights - we had a good amount of time to explore these grand structures with so much detail and history. These sites were less crowded than we expected which contributed to how much we enjoyed exploring and taking photos. Scuba diving in Hurghada on the Red Sea was a great experience and we swam with dolphins. Alexandria was bustling and full of things to see and do.

-The guide in Luxor (Ahmed, but the guide in Cairo was also named Ahmed) helped arrange a wonderful evening for us.

Room for improvement:
-The drivers should NEVER, EVER speak on their handheld cell phone when driving.
-There is NEVER a reason to continually quiz the client. This got very old, very fast.
-Both the guides seemed to feel the goal was to spew out as much data, information and trivia as possible. As they were both super knowledgeable, this made it become quite tedious and pretty boring. Telling the historic story, and adding facts and data to put the story in perspective, would have made the tour more fun, interesting and we likely would have learned a lot more if it had been done that way.

The trip turned out to be excellent. There was some confusion re the booking at first regarding the tickets for the plane and the fact they wanted photo copies of our passports, never done before but we later found out it is required by the Police.

So at first a bit of a lack of confidence that all would not be as good as expected or that the trip and people would turn up.

Both trips were excellent and we got exactly what we asked for.

The trip to Giza had a guide who thought he was in a lecture theatre at first but came around after a while.

Yes I would recommend Kim Kim
