  • Joslyn Monroe from GermanyPosted on February 25, 2020
    The 7-day Egypt tour from Cairo was substantial covering many famous attractions like the Giza Pyramids, Great Sphinx, Nile River Cruise and Abu Simbel Temple. The itinerary of the whole journey was fabulously well arranged including accommodations and vehicles.

    Our guide in Cairo was dedicated and active to tell us the necessary attention matters and detailed schedule for the next day. Very scrupulous! Also, she had great photography skills and helped us take many memorable photos in front of the pyramids.
  • Adelina Y. Kim from ItalyPosted on January 11, 2020
    Hotel: Big & soft beds in the 5-star hotels provided us with comfortable environment to have good rests.

    Attractions: The Nile River cruise were wonderful! The sightseeing time of pyramids was also well controlled, and all the itineraries were arranged in order! Thanks a lot for Agate giving us a high quality route arrangement!
  • Stephen Kew from the United StatesPosted on January 06, 2020
    A perfect experience in Egypt! This trip was the best one in recent years.
    The food, accommodation and schedule were very nice.
    The Nile River cruise, Great Sphinx, and the old temples were all the highlights of this 7 days Egypt tour.
  • Eleanora Mcewen from CanadaPosted on December 19, 2019
    Quite an exciting experience on this 7-days Egypt tour from Cairo! Satisfied with the responsible & thoughtful guide. The Great Pyramids and Sphinx were really amazing, and the Nile River cruise was enjoyable! Many thanks to Agate for arranging such a perfect schedule!
  • Nicolai Gerloff from SingaporePosted on December 04, 2019
    Personally, in addition to the attractions, the tour guide is the core of the whole tour. Not surprisingly, all the guides of our 7 days Egypt tour were very satisfactory. They always told us stories about Egyptian history that can't be found on the Internet. Learned about local cultural customs and gained a lot!
  • Hara Kumiko from JapanPosted on November 17, 2019
    The tour guide was a native proficient in Egyptian history and geography. She introduced each famous scenic spot to us in detail. We fully appreciated the long history and culture of ancient Egypt.

    The tour cars, cruises, hotels and meals on this 7 days Egypt tour from Cairo were all excellent! Reasonable planning of the route and time let us feel the combination of work and rest. It was really a wonderful memory!
  • Ranya from MalaysiaPosted on November 02, 2019
    It was a great trip! Thanks to the travel consultant Kelly for her patience in resolving our questions. If I have an opportunity, I will choose the outstanding services of Agate Travel and Kelly again. I am looking forward to my next trip!
  • Lauren Gabriela from AustraliaPosted on October 17, 2019
    Our 7-day Egypt tour from Cairo was arranged very well and all of the local guides were conscientious and responsible.
    Especially the guide who explained the Temple of Abu Simbel in detail was so experienced. She told us lots of stories behind it and showed us the incredible craftsmanship both inside and outside. It was definitely a must-see in Egypt!
  • Kemp Harris from USAPosted on September 21, 2019
    Our tour guide had rich experience and knew the local social conditions, traffic, public order, food and other aspects thoroughly. He also carefully informed us of various precautions before departure. Pyramids and Sphinx were really amazing! Nile River cruise dinner was also enjoyable! The group members exchanged their travel experiences with each other. Everyone lived in perfect harmony during 7 days Egypt tour!
  • Alice Archambault from USAPosted on September 02, 2019
    The whole journey was very enjoyable! We were so happy with the experience in Cairo. We had an excellent Nile River cruise dinner and appreciated a spectacular belly-dancing and interesting folklore show. The cruiser floated for 2 hours, and we enjoyed the quiet and relaxing time very much!!
