“ Thanks for Professional and Personalized service”
I travelled to Egypt with my friend Anna in September and would like to express my thanks to Gat Tours staff for all their efforts in ensuring that our trip was a wonderful experience.
Manar, our guide for tours of Gizza and Alexandria, was not only a very knowledgeable Egyptologist but also a charming and warm person and it did not take long for us to feel that we had known her for a long time. Her passion for her subject was obvious and one quickly became engrossed in the Egypt of the past as she introduced us to the wonders of each place we visited.
Mahmud, our driver with a great smile, kept us feeling safe as he expertly manouvered through the traffic in the congested streets of Cairo and Alexandria.
Ahmad, our guide who accompanied us to Abu Simbel and on the Nile cruise was a perfect choice. He kept us entertained with his interesting and knowledgeable commentary on our tours and also the through chats we had about life in general during the time we spent together. We enjoyed his company very much. [ We chose the 5*Super Deluxe M/ S Amarco 1 for the 4 day/ 3 night cruise as recommended by Gat Tours and were not disappointed as it certainly lived up to expectations.]
The staff also ensured that we were aware of how to deal with tipping, unwanted salesmen and a multitude of other little situations in a culturally appropriate manner which was much appreciated by us as first time visitors to Egypt.
Last, but certainly not least, Mohamed Gomaa, our lovely tour operator/leader, who organised all aspects of our travel. Mohamed was helpful and professional from the first time I made contact with Gat Tours, listening to our needs and making helpful suggestions regarding tours, flights, accommodation etc. The end result was a holiday that met our expectations and much more. Importantly, the cost represented great value for money. Mohamed was the first person that we met on arrival in Egypt as he waited at the airport to introduce himself and accompany us to our first hotel. He was also the last we saw as he waited until we were safely dispatched on our flight home. Mohamed ensured that every aspect of our trip ran on time and without incident and acted as our guide for a trip to Khan ElKhalily which we enjoyed very much. His efforts in every area were very much appreciated as we found ourselves being looked after like royalty, staying in luxurious accommodation, eating delicious food and living our dream, be it ever so briefly.
We have returned home with wonderful memories of the places stayed and visited and the marvelous attractions that we saw, but it was the kindness and attention of Gat Tours staff that we met and quickly got to regard as friends that made our trip truly memorable. I would not hesitate to recommend Gat Tours to anyone considering a holiday in Egypt. I know they will not be disappointed as the service is professional and personalised and goes above and beyond anything I have experienced before. Thank you again.
