I can start by saying that thy have the right name for the company, this trip was beyond AMAZING! From the moment we contacted the company Ahmed responded to us promptly with all the information we asked for and he was available to respond all our questions afterwards. Our trip was planned with a month in advanced and we would have thought that going to Egypt from America would have been more hectic, however, Ahmed and his team made it extremely easy!
I am normally a control freak and I normally do not travel with an agency. But this time around Egypt was a destination that was not as easy to plan, even less in such a short notices. Amazing Global Travel made me feel comfortable to leave it all to the them. Also, Ahmed is able to customize your trip to any preferences you have.
From the moment we stepped out of the airplane in Egypt we had a representative waiting for us to get our visa and cross customs. He then led us to our guide, Radwa, who was going to be with us in Cairo. Well, Radwa was wonderful!! She was friendly, patient and answer every single question we had about the culture, religion, history. She is knowledgeable and gave us all the information and history behind everywhere we went.
Hotel: we stayed at the Marriott Mena House overlooking the pyramids of Giza. It was breathtaking everytime we went back to the hotel to enjoy dinner. The food was great too. Specifically breakfast! The first day we woke up on time to eat before our tour and then we realize we did not wake up w enough time to really enjoy breakfast. It was a feast that included everything so don't miss out on it.
On our third day we flew to Aswan, again we had a representative picked us up in the morning, they made sure we had a breakfast box to take to the airport w us. Then we had an agent that took us to our gate. Same when we got to Aswan to check into the cruise. The cruise was also top notch, the service, our room, the dinning area, everything was exceptional. Everyday we had breakfast buffet, went on a tour through the ancient temples, came back for lunch, some days we went back out other we stayed in to enjoy the pool. Dinner was served on time and we had a little show on board. By the end of the cruise everyone on board were friends, including the staff.
During the cruise we were with Ahmed who showed us around and explained to us all the history behind the temples, we learned more about ancient Egyptian culture how it has been influenced and how it has influenced others thought out the thousands of years of history. Ahmed is a very polite, educated, passionate man who talks about his country w so much love that is contagious. He also took so much care of us, never missed a detail. He made sure we always had water, we got the the site at the best time to avoid crowds, the cars were always waiting for us so we did not have to stand on the sun for so long. He was amazing, treated us as friends. When our time with him came to an end I felt I was saying good bye to a friend.
After the cruise we flew from Luxor to Cairo and again we did not have to worry about anything. We spent out last our w Radwa who showed us the market, we had dinner and finished our trip.
All I have to say is that this was one of the best trips I have done. It had a little bit of everything, it was easy to customize and communicate with the agency to fulfill all our needs and wants. Every member of the team was amazing. We will definitely come back and explore more. SHUKRAN AMAZING GLOBAL TRAVEL!!!!
