I would like to highly recommend Le Caire Travel in Egypt.
Mr. George did an excellent job of arranging tours to meet our personal needs. He replied to all e-mails promptly and efficiently.
We had read excellent reviews of Le Caire Travel extensive tours of Egypt, but because we were on a cruise, we toured with them one day in Alexandria and one day in Cairo, Memphis, and Sakkara.
I had always wanted to see the pyramids, and they exceeded my expectations. It is amazing how they were built so many thousands of years ago using only rudimentary tools.
Each of the limestone stones is as tall as a person and weighs several tons. Supposedly, there is enough stone to encircle France with a 1-by-3-meter fence. The three pyramids are all impressive.
My guide booked a camel ride for me near the pyramids. What fun!
Alexandria was spectacular. We saw all the usual things, but the highlight was actually going inside of the new Alexandria Library. Most tours only drive by it, but inside it is spectacular and the exhibits are worthwhile. This is the largest library in the world and the main space is incredibly large and beautiful.
Our guide was outstanding. I taught ancient Egyptian history in public school, but I learned so much more!
I would recommend Le Caire Travel to anyone thinking of planning a trip to Egypt.

Hi. We're two couples who have booked through Le Caire Travel for our tour in last Sep. We are celebrating a 60th birthday. We were recommended to them by someone who had just returned from Egypt who was extremely impressed by this company. We got quotes from 3 different companies, and as well as being recommended, Le Caire Travel was also the cheapest.
They were helpful from the word go, and were always quick with a response to our queries. Their Guides whilst we were there were a joy, and so knowledgeable, they made the Egyptian history come to life.
I don't know if they are the cheapest, and I don't care, they worked well on our behalf and were worth every penny we paid for our holiday.

Cairo is a great city and is like a fairy land that comes in the dream when you think of an ancient place surrounded by desert. This city is been the set of many historical movies including The Mummy which was based on the tales of Egyptian fantasies. This city is also a fabulous city for shopping and you can easily find many historical look-alike artifacts at a very cheap price that will go with any room settings. So, plan your holidays and make a nostalgic movie of your own with your own experience. Visit : http://www.crystaltravel.co.uk/
