Our Experience

“ Wonderful adventure in Egypt”

Ahmed, Just a quick note to say thank you so much for organising such a wonderful adventure for us

From the moment we touched down at Cairo, to when you took us back through customs on our return flight, we were in great hands at every location

Our journey was fascinating:

Day 1 – Arrive Cairo 01:00

Pyramids at Giza am – journey to the inner chamber, followed by being let loose on a couple of healthy looking horses to gallop across the desert.  As competitive horse riders, this was an unexpected treat, as being entrusted with fast horses is not always allowed

Egyptian Museum pm – so much to see, we only touched the surface here, but enough for us on Day 1!

Sleeper train – very appreciative of GAT Tours booking us on the train with sleeping compartments.  The Bar carriage was a step back to the 70’s – definitely worth visiting (even for just five minutes)

Day 2 – 5 – JUST AMAZING

Temples / Tombs – truly unbelievable sights, history that is hard to process – arriving at each location and the first glimpse of each enormous creation felt like we were in our own little adventure.  We truly felt enormously lucky to have the chance to see first hand such an amazing pieces of history

We added a ride on donkeys to see the ‘Valley of the Kings’ and ‘Temple of Hatshepsut’ from the mountain top – this was unforgettable, and the best place to get true perspective on the area

Mojito Nile Cruise Ship – very happy and friendly staff.  Sitting on deck in the late afternoon, watching Egypt pass by as the sun set – priceless

Days 6 – 16 – El Gouna

Sheraton Miramar – great service, dining, and hotel complex

My highlights:

– well equipped gym

– 2k running track

– varied and extensive buffet meals

– comfortable beds

– Tuk Tuk service around El Gouna

Many thanks to all the GAT Tours staff that made our trip, one to remember.  Special thanks to Ahmed, Amira and Emad – guys we thoroughly enjoyed your company and will certainly recommend your services to all our friends interested in visiting your incredible country

Hope to see you again on future trips

Regards
