Without mr Ismail Haroun this trip was impossible. This gentleman (guide) mr Ismail have a thorough knowledge about the history of the past specially about the temples and the way he explains and command in English make us possible to understand I recommend him to all my family and friend and my co worker for him if they come to Egypt contact him.
Amazing trip! Egypt Gift Tours is the roght choice!

We chose to see as much of Egypt as we could and Egypt Gift Tours was just perfect to support us. Heba is very professional and attentive, never failing to respond to our requests. She also has a deep knowledge of the routes and tour options offered, and should certainly be consulted about the decisions to be made in the trip planning phase.
We also hired some transfers with Egyp Gift Tours and all were punctual, despite the chaotic traffic in Cairo.
It is worth mentioning that in times of Covid, when the PCR exam was necessary for international travel, Heba helped us in this part too, that is, the service we had was much more than a simple tourist agency.
The best part was undoubtedly the journey between Aswan and Luxor, which included visits to Abu Simbel, Nubia Village and the famous cruise with several temples and balloon flight. At this stage we had the support of the guide Mostafa Abdo, who has an impeccable performance, speaks Portuguese very well (it makes the trip more confirtable to us as Brazilians), in addition to being very pleasant and dedicated. With him we had good classes in Egyptian history.
On the part between Cairo and Alexandria we had the service of the guide Omima, very friendly and also with excellent command of Portuguese.
In summary, we highly recommend the services of Egypt Tours, without a doubt they were responsible for the success of our experience in Egypt.
Amazing experience with amazing guide

Me and my mom enjoyed the trip so much, every minute of every day was amazing to say the least, great cruise with great people, great and interesting activities packed with lots of interesting, historical places to visit. Also hot air balloon flight really worth it, though need to wake up very early, but with all the breathtaking views from the balloon - you are not going to regret it at all.

Heba Haggag, Egypt Gift Tours

Went as a couple, just my wife and I on the Viator Discover Egypt 8-days Cairo, Nile Cruise, Abu Simbel & Alexandria tour. Excellent value on this tour, very professionally put together by Heba Haggag, excellent communication and a great amount of help from her every step of the way, making certain we were in contact with our private driver and guides every day. We had a private guide for just the two of us on most of the tours, along with a private car and driver. Another American couple joined us for some of the tour stops along the Nile but it never felt too crowded (with the exception of the uncomfortable almost-4-hour-each-way mini-bus ride from Aswan to Abu Simbel and back- but the only way to avoid that was to fly, which didn’t seem worth the effort or time savings). We had the opportunity to see all the major historically and culturally significant sights at every stop. Our cruise boat was older and the cabin a little tired-looking but we really didn’t really care about that on this trip, we just needed a clean room and bathroom and a comfortable bed. If you want higher-end or the highest-end cruise boat, just ask Heba, she can set it up for you. But our main focus on this, our first trip to Egypt was seeing as much as we could of the sites and learning the culture and history of this ancient land in only 8 days. For the price we paid and the value we received with one-on-one personal private guides I don’t know how it could’ve been set up any better for us.
As importantly as the organization of the trip itself, Heba became a lifesaver for us when the COVID testing provider the Steigenberger hotel in Luxor set up for us a few days before our flight back home refused to send us our test results. We had already left Luxor and gone back to Cairo for the final two days of our trip and the testing provider- who had promised to have our test results to us by 1pm- began giving us the silent treatment and runaround, saying we didn’t pay for the correct type of test, we needed to pay more money, they couldn’t get the test results to us that they promised etc etc. This was going to jeopardize our flights home the following day. I asked Heba to help and it took her three hours of phone calls, waiting on hold, getting passed around to every member of the Steigenberger Luxor staff, getting ghosted by the testing facility and finally talking to the Steigenberger hotel manager. She was so upset and fighting so hard for us they pushed her to the verge of tears after hours of getting nowhere. Finally around 8pm she was able to get our test results. I can’t stress enough how helpful Heba was for us in making sure we were able to get home and how much we appreciated her efforts. Thank you Heba! We will definitely return to Egypt and when we do we won’t use anyone but Heba as our tour organizer!
Highly recommend! Fun times in Egypt

We had a great time in Egypt.
Nile cruise and tours - fun, educational and worthwhile. History in abundance.
Mohamed was a great host and tour guide. He made the whole trip fun. Always willing to help where needed.
Heba coordinated well with tour guides. They were always on time and kept us posted all activities. They were willing adjust tour to fit schedules and travel arrangements.
