  1. My sister Alice and I was on a vacation in Dubai and Egypt about a month ago. We have been in many places around the world but Egypt is definitely the most memorable one. We did not really impress with Dubai since most of it we have back home in the States.

    However, our trip in Egypt is amazing. The people of Egypt are extremely courteous, helpful and their customer services are incomparable in our opinion. Wherever we are, in the hotels, in the restaurants, with the tour guides, on the cruise. Egyptians are always considerate and accommodated to our needs. We enjoy every minute of our vacation in Egypt. Everywhere, people are friendly and greet us with warm smiles or a hand gesture. The children are lovely and run after us and give us a high five or practice their English on us. We are vegan and the restaurant staffs and local tour guides make great effort to get us the vegetarian food.

    On our last day, we booked a one-day trip with Your Egypt Tour to see the Suez Canal. Before we departed the US, we booked it on line with Mona Hamdy, the customer service rep with Your Egypt Tour. She is fast and does such a great job for us. The trip is pre-arranged and well plan from beginning to the end. Our van crisscrossed the countryside and traveled through little streets and alleys, which make the trip even more interesting because we see something differences. We see Egyptians in traditional garbs and street vendors selling their products. Mr.Mamdouh, the noted Egyptologist tour guide also provided us a wealth of information regarding Egypt’s vast history as well as its current conditions. He also selected a special spot for us so we can see the amazing Suez Canal and video it.

    We have visited many countries throughout the world but Egypt is definitely one of the best. We highly recommend Egypt to vacationers and especially, Your Egypt Tours to everyone.
