Ibrahim Elaref

I have been working in the tourism field for more than 11 years. I born in Luxor and now I live and work in Cairo. I established my own travel company in 2009, and we are now one of the leading tour operators in Egypt.

As a destination expert I offer private guided tours and have multilingual Egyptology tour guides speaking more than 9 languages, our representatives cover all of the tourist cities in Egypt. As a destination expert, my goal is to offer high-quality service at competitive prices. I offer classic Egypt tour packages that focus on the iconic sights, as well as off the beaten path itineraries.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"We offer tours all over Egypt, Jordan, Dubai, Abudhabi & Turkey. We can help with tailor-made tours, classic tours, religious tours, red sea, safari tours. We can help you plan the perfect luxury, adventurous, budget, solo, family or romantic vacation."

How did you get involved in travel?

"My whole family is involved in tourism. My father is my role model, and he was the general manager of the oldest and the largest travel agency in Egypt. so I always aspired to work in the tourism industry as well. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"In 2017, I designed and led a trip for a group of 350 people from the US. This was a great experience. "

Egypt trip, Egypt - Aug 7 - Aug 11, 2019

Traveler: Jeff H. - Local specialist: Ibrahim Elaref

The positives:
-Ibrahim planned the very jam-packed tour we hoped for (we had very limited time), and we were able to do everything we hoped for. And when an issue came up with our flights a few weeks before the tour, he was flexible in helping re-arrange some things.
-We were met every time we were supposed to be, and all on time or close to on time.
-The guides were very knowledgeable.

-We were met every time we were supposed to be, and all on time or close to on time.
-The guides were very knowledgeable.
-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.

Egypt spring break, Egypt - Apr 22 - Apr 27, 2019

Traveler: Valerie D. - Local specialist: Ibrahim Elaref

We had a wonderful trip to Egypt. We had constant communication with Ibrahim our local specialist and he was always there for us. We had a guide for every stage of our tour and the transfers from one location to another were seamless. Everyone was very kind and the excursions were super fun. We especially enjoyed the Nile Cruise and our trip to the Red Sea in Hurgada. It was a great time and we felt very safe!

Hello
My experience in Egypt was great thanks to the guys from Egypt Promotion Travel. I ve been to other countries with some tour packages but never like the one in Egypt. This company have a personal touch, their staff is very firendly and best of all they are very knowledgeable (I felt like they could teach history in University). I was thinking to coordinate my tour in Egypt on my own ut decided to chat with their representative and basically expressed my idea and they were able to put it together in a well scheduled itinerary. I disnt have to look no futher and booked them all. Everything was great; from the temples to the cruise in the nile. I highly recomend them to everyone because of their professionalism and the good safety while they took me around their beautiful country.
Hope to see you soon again!
