We had a wonderful trip to Egypt through KimKim! Lareine was extremely responsive and helpful throughout our planning process, and she put together a fabulous itinerary for us that allowed us to see so much of Egypt in 10 days. She made all the bookings per our preferences and made it easy. We started in Cairo (which included a visit to the Great Pyramids), continued to a Nile River cruise from Aswan to Luxor, and ended the trip at a resort on the Red Sea in Hurghada. Seeing the pyramids and riding camels were definitely highlights, but we really enjoyed the entire trip and it all felt like a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

All of our tour guides, representatives, and drivers gave us very good service and made us feel comfortable. They went above and beyond to help with things like getting through the airport, translating, even just tips and tricks about the culture and sites. Our Cairo tour guide Mohamed Samir in particular did a great job in giving us a personalized experience, adjusting our days based on our interests, what kind of shopping we wanted to do, and what kind of food we wanted to eat. Representative Samara was also great about constantly checking in with us, from our flight in all the way until the end of our trip.  

All of our accommodations were nice, but specifically the Sonesta Nuba in Aswan and the Premier Le Reve in Hurghada were beautiful! We would have loved more time at both. 

The only thing we might not recommend are the sound & light shows at various ruins. They are not that exciting and not necessarily worth the time/price. Also, we unknowingly travelled during Ramadan so we had to contend with some holiday hours at sites and restaurants. We did not miss out on anything because of this, but I'd avoid travelling during Ramadan if possible.
