Overall the trip was excellent. A few things that I suggest are:
A) The Nile cruise overall is ok. It is for sure not new and not 4+. I would rate it 3. The staff in the cruise are good but the floor was creeky and the carpet was not well laid. The bathroom was a bit leaking. I would suggest to prefer another cruise. Sightseeing and other things in the cruise are good.
B) There were too many staff changes. The guides were consistent but the drivers changed often. I prefer I stick to a team so that I get to know them better. Before I knew someone a new one comes in.
C) I would suggest kimkim to suggest an appropriate tipping guide. Other travel agencies do that. I had to read other blogs for tipping guide.

Thanks to the whole team for making it a memorable experience.

The optional trips to visit a Nubian village and the hot air balloon was unforgettable . Mohammed our driver in Cairo was super helpful and kind.
Ibrahim’s itinerary and hotel/ flight bookings were 5 star.
2 small points, which I hope will be taken as constructive feedback
1. Communication from Ibrahim could have been a bit more prompt and saved us some worry
2. On the return to Cairo from Luxor we only had 12 hours to spend in Cairo. Perhaps a hotel closer to the airport could have been chosen saving us a 1.5 hr trip each way from airport to hotel and back.

I have been wanting to go to Egypt for years, as it had been on my bucket list for some time. The planning process with Ibrahim seemed to be fine. However, there were a lot of bumps upon arrival. First, we got into Cairo, and went to the St. Regis, which was great. The first night, we were scheduled to go on a Nile cruise for dinner. When we got to the cruise, it was absolutely disgusting, and we ended up not staying. When we talked to out guide the next day about it, he was shocked the tour company sent us to that cruise, agreeing with us that it was filthy and well below average standards (and he recommended we try the nice cruise). The next day, we were surprised that the tour was much shorter than expected and did not include the Egyptian Museum. I would have expected any tour to include the museum, and that a tour operator would know that the museum should not be missed. So, we had to pay extra not only for the museum, but also the guide's time. And, really that became the mantra for the trip - the tours were less than half the day and we ended up paying for a lot of extras that should have been included. When we went to Luxor, only the Valley of the Kings was included, not the Valley of the Queens. So, not only did we pay extra for the entrance fee (which was fine), the tour company wanted an extra $90 USD for the car to take us there (which was literally less than a ten minute drive) and for the guide's time (which we were already paying for, as we had the guide for the day and when the tours we were scheduled to go on were over before 11am). This was disappointing to say the least. I would expect that a tour company should know the things to see and approx. time to take on these tours, and if the tours were only going to be part of the day, I would think that the tour company would tell us ahead of time and recommend other things to do. Further, when we paid for a private tour guide and car, we expected to have use of that car and/or guide not just for a few hours in the morning. And, when we asked to go to a dinner about 10 min drive from the hotel, we were told it was not included, and they asked for $15 USD. Not a big deal, but when you already paid for a private car/driver, it seems odd to charge extra for this. And one of our guides did not speak very good English (almost none), which was quite disappointing. And, even things like breakfast that were supposed to be included, ended up not being included on two of the days.

This is in contrast to last year, when we went to Jordan with the same set up - a private car and tour guide - using this company. Our tour guide was amazing, and the car was always available to take us to lunch, dinner, extra things (minus costs of the entrance fees). Sadly, we did not get the same experience.

One of our guides, Ahmed, was awesome. He was with us for Aswan and Luxor. He was super knowledgeable, passionate and just all around great. He really made the trip amazing. When we had extra time, he helped us find good places for souvenirs, took us off the beaten path to find great dining spots and would take us to interesting places (like a local nubian coffee place) and just talk to us about the culture and his country. We couldn't have asked for a better guide, and I only wished he had been our guide the entire time.

While our trip to Egypt was memorable because it was Egypt, looking back, I would not have used this tour company for this trip. We paid a lot of money to have a private car/driver, and we were disappointed not only that our tours ended up being super short, but that we had to pay extra for things that should have been included (or that the tour company should have asked to be included).

Overall, we enjoyed our trip to Egypt. There were several people on the KimKim team that were extremely helpful and welcoming and that we would specifically like to mention and thank (namely Mahmoud, who was so helpful in assisting us at the Cairo airport going home following a delay in Luxor, our guide Hamse in Cairo, Zain in Aswan, and the staff at the Swiss Inn). We met some lovely people on our trip and greatly appreciated the help that was provided.

That being said, there were some instances in which we did not feel that we got what we paid for when booking with a tour company. We are experienced travelers and are comfortable on our own in most scenarios, but booked with a tour company largely to help mitigate being hassled to buy things. We are not souvenir people and don't travel eight thousand miles to sit through sales pitches for items that we don't want to buy. That being said, we would have been okay if it was a single time, or if the items were cheap in price as it's helping the local economy, but instead we were forced to stop several times for demonstrations at places we did not agree to on the itinerary and put in the uncomfortable position of either saying no (which took several tries. At one place, the salesman said "money isn't everything" when we politely said "no, thank you" to the item he wanted us to buy) or purchasing a $150 USD candle holder, for example. Each of the places we were taken to, we were quotes prices that were, at minimum, $50 USD and up. This was very frustrating for us as we only had about 5 days in Egypt and did not want to (nor agree to) spend it sitting through uncomfortable sales pitches for items we did not want in the first place. (it's also worth mentioning that at the "authentic" cotton store we were taken to, one of the items we bought was a pair of loose cotton pants that literally ripped at the inside seam after an hour of wearing them. I noticed another reviewer state that their guide in Aswan was "nice, until he wasn't" when they did not want to purchase from one of the places they were taken to. I have to wonder if this was the same guide we had because we experienced the same thing. Our guide in Aswan was nice, but also seemed to get upset and sullen when we did not purchase from the oil store we were taken to. It made the car ride to the boat uncomfortable enough that we considered what our options were for the rest of the trip as we didn't like feeling trapped in that situation and didn't know how many more unscheduled stops would be included in the trip.

We also noticed that the itinerary we were given when booking the trip was not adhered to. We had about 3 items scheduled for our last full day, and when planning the trip were told that since our flight was in the evening, we could choose to pay an additional fee and do some extra sightseeing on the last day, which came out to I believe 2-3 additional sights. Our guide instead crammed all of these sights into one day, starting at 4:30 am. Finally at around 6 pm we had to tell him we needed to stop as we were physically exhausted and weren't feeling well, and he agreed to do the final tour of Luxor in the morning as he had another tour group scheduled the following day. This was frustrating for us as the itinerary we were given when booking the trip led us to believe these tours would be scheduled (at least roughly) equally on each day, and having them all put into one day made it so that we could not adequately take in what we were seeing as we were rushing from one place to the next and were exhausted. After our final tour in the morning at Luxor, we were done around 8:30 and then waited in a nearby hotel lobby for about 7 hours until the driver returned to take us to the airport to leave for home, which felt like a bit of a waste of a day. There were also two separate times on the boat in which the guide told us to meet him at a specific time and then did not show up, so we were waiting for over an hour each time before we finally called his room to ask if he wanted to reschedule.

Overall, I feel that communication could have been better as we were not given estimated times on the itinerary, and I'm not sure they would have been adhered to anyway. It left us with a bit of a bad taste in our mouths in the end as we booked with a tour company specifically to make the trip smooth and instead at times it felt like we were put in uncomfortable situations and it felt like our time wasn't valued.

Our guide in Cairo - Rohnna (Ronnie) was outstanding, her knowledge and enthusiasm for her job was fabulous. Ronnie's English was excellent, and we gained a lot of insight from her. We travelled to Luxor where we were met again at the airport and introduced to Michael our guide for the Luxor/ Aswan part of our trip. Michael was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and his English language was A+. We had great drivers as well. The company representatives who met us at each destination, Mohammad and Zain and another whom we met only briefly so I can't recall his name were wonderful and very helpful and always made sure everything was going to plan. Tipping was expected everywhere and for everything and I was given a guide for amounts which was really helpful prior to arriving so it wasn't a shock. So thankyou once again for making our Egypt tour amazing. I would highly recommend kimkim.
