I recently used Kimkim to plan a very last minute trip to Egypt. I did have a list of sights to see but not much else. Sharif did the rest! He planned a very detailed itinerary that included everything on our list (and then some!) and did it in less than two weeks, accommodating some even more last minute date changes.

I recently used Kimkim to plan a very last minute trip to Egypt. I did have a list of sights to see but not much else. Sharif did the rest! He planned a very detailed itinerary that included everything on our list (and then some!) and did it in less than two weeks, accommodating some even more last minute date changes. What resulted was private door to door service to and from all airports, hotels, and tours, with private escorts and guides throughout the entire trip. 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. We have taken many trips as a couple and a family all over North and South America, the Caribbean, and Europe but this just might rank as number 1. Many, many thanks to you all!!

Tour to Egyptian Museum, Islamic Cairo and Khan El Khalili Bazaar
Cairo

It was amazing to be driven through Cairo, which was very helpful given the traffic. The Egyptian museum was extremely interesting and the mosques were both beautiful. The bazaar was a lot of fun and we had a delicious lunch there, at a restaurant that Nesrine recommended.

We were in very good hands with Nesrine! And Abile is a wonderful driver and very able to handle the chaotic Cairo traffic.
