Fantastic 15 days in Egypt
Jan 14 - Jan 28, 2023
Kim Kim did a great job at organizing our 15 day trip to Egypt. 1st of all the people , culture, food and sights are wonderful. While I know using a travel agent usually cost a little bit more, it was well, well worth it. My husband and I usually like to go to any location for at least 2 weeks or more and try to pack in as much as possible. Kim-Kim and their Egyptian team was able to lay out a great final literary after several versions to get to what we wanted. We had a heavily pack literary, and Kim-Kim travel and their Egyptian team ( Ibrahim, Mahmoud Hashim and so many more) made it happen smoothly with no worries. When I think of it, to do it on our own would have been a logistical nightmare.
We captured all the great sights in and around Cairo, a day in Alexandria, 2 days, and a night in the White Desert (A MUST DO!!). Our Guide in the North was Khaled Roshgy and he was wonderful, very well informed, energetic and enthusiastic to show us all the sights. We then flew south to visit all the sights in Aswan and took a Dahabiya sailing boat trip down the Nile to Luxor to take in everything it had to offer. The sailing trip included 4-5 stops at ancient sites that many of the motorized boats don't have access too. Our southern guide was Mohamad Helmy and he too was a fantastic guide who was very informative at every level. He made us feel so welcomed and was not only very informative of all the sites, but also Egyptian everyday life past and present. I would highly recommend the Dahabiya sailing over the motorized boats. The Food and Crew of the Maya was fantastic! We then moved on to Hurghada for some diving and some beach relaxation at the Sheraton Soma Bay. (Great Hotel and team providing great service )
I would have to say this is a Must do, we only booked 2 days and 1 night in the Black and White desert. We should have also stayed a night in Bahariya to enjoy the hot springs . This adventure was in the top 5 of 10 things we did in Egypt. The guide was very good in all aspect of the trip, food, information, and just how welcoming he was to us.
In our opinion this is a MUST DO ! Our Dahabiya Maya, the food and crew were fantastic, so welcoming and accommodating in everything we wanted. Avoid the motorized boats, the Dahabiya is the way to go . Great stops , food facilities, all the comforts of home and more, super relaxing
Fantastic Hotel and location, great food and staff is wonderful
Very nice hotel , great staff and location for the activities we had planned.
Great location , unfortunately we only stayed one night here and needed to catch up on sleep.
Great location for flying out the next day.
