          An another excellent trip today in Luxor, it was amazing again for me. This is 56th country I visited in my life. Thank God I’m learning something different every trip. All the monuments are amazing and must see. 3500 years ago what their ancestors did something and today it’s become a Revenue local citizens by tourism. I specially want to thank my guide Mr. Hassan Ashour and the driver Mr. Arafath for today They took care of me so well. Explained me everything. Protect me from everything. I really appreciate their services. 100% worth for money and time.

          Luxor day trip
          Wow. I can’t begin to describe how incredible Luxor is, I wish we had more time. So much rich history and great hospitality. Our tour guide Hasan was great. Super knowledgeable and very nice. Took us to a great restaurant with great food and incredible view. My only complaint is we didn’t have more time because there’s sooo much to see and do. Ask for Hasan, he made the whole trip seamless. He was with us beginning to end and was amazing. We had more time left, so he offered to take us to other places to accommodate us. He was awesome. It’s a long day, so dress comfortable with good shoes. The weather was super hot, and Hasan would get us water when it was hot a few times not just once so that was really nice of him

          Great Private Tour. Knowledgable and Friendly Guide
          My Tour Guide Paula was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and willing to answer all my questions. I would definitely recommend this private tour. I asked my guide to show me where to buy authentic high quality souveniers and was able to plan it into the itinerary. Saqqara was by far my favorite part of the tour. My tour guide talked me through the fascinating history of the place and I actually enjoyed it more than the great pyramids. Saqqara is a magical place. My tour guide arranged for me to go inside the great pyramid and also told me how to avoid scammers and took some pictures for me when I was outside the pyramid. Saqqara was so good I opted to leave Memphis off the itinerary to spend more time in Saqqara. Paula was a fantastic tour guide and I plan on taking this tour again when I come to Egypt. This is my trusted Tour Company for Egypt. I would highly recommend.

          Easy way to see the less known (and less crowded) but nonetheless as interesting as Giza's pyramids
          It was a great tour. Paula our guide gave us valuable pieces of information to make our experience better and to understand all the background behind the construction of the unique and oldest Sakkara and Dahchour pyramids and necropolis complex. I recommend !

          We did our tour in Cairo with Youssef Shaaban, from the pyramids and temples to the museum with him. He was really knowledgeable and an amazing guide that we recommend.

          Luxor Trip
          Luxor is a nice place, more calm and peaceful than Cairo. Our tour guide Mohammad was knowledgeable and able to explain temples and tombs well in details. He is also an Egyptologist, so we were quite informed and oriented. However, the downside in our two-day trip was the arranged tour was few, started at 8-9 am and finished at 1-2 pm.. We were expecting more activity from Ramassaide tours since the package was slightly costly. We were in the hotel after 2 pm and sadly didn’t do anything. Overall, the tour itself is okay. We were happy to be there but maybe do DIY the next time to maximize the day and be more productive.

          Best tour guide in Luxor!
          What a great day with Mohamed. He was at the airport waiting when we arrived. He is incredibly knowledgeable and wow did we learn a lot about all of the sites we visited. Took us to a great local place for lunch and was beyond accommodating when we wanted to extend our day. Highly recommend him if you find yourself in Luxor!

          Our great experience in Giza, Memphis and Saccara.
          We visited Giza to see Pyramids and Sphinx with my wife, and enjoyed Camel rides there. After that, we visited Memphis and Saccara to see step pyramid and museums. During our tour, Ahmed Salah, English speaking guide has supported us through detailed explanation of historical backgrounds with nice English. Furthermore, he picked us up on time at Hotel. We appreciate for his great support and courtesy guide.

          We had the absolute best time! Our tour guide was Lamia and she was very knowledgeable. She went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our time and were able to see all the spots. Our driver, Haitham, was great as well.

          CAIRO IN A DAY
          The tour for a day in Pyramids of Giza, Sphinx and museum was okay. It was fun and educational. Our tour guide Ahmed Salah was excellent and patient. He was able to fill our curiosity in Egypt’s history. Plus, he took great and instagrammable photos too! The only downside is, Grand Museum may be more preferrable since it has more old artifacts and I think more facts to discover as per tourist’s perspective. If added instead of Egyptian Museum, the tour will be more appreciated. Overall, it was a great experience!

          Ahmed has been our guide for 2 days in Luxor. Everything was planned to perfection and he made sure we were comfortable at all times. He is very professional and has a great knowledge of ancient Egypt, we will never forget Luxor and its treasures thanks to Ahmed.

        The tour was very nice, we went to many interesting places in Alexandria worth seeing, and our tourgide Sam was the best! He was very flexible, and really made an effort to understand the group and our interests and needs to guide us better. He clearly knows A LOT about what he is talking about, and gave us very complete answers to all our questions.
        I would come back to this tour agency only because how great Sam was 👌🌞🔥

        Both Tour guide Amina and driver Islam are highly professional and excel at what they do. I requested for Amina because of the great reviews I read about her and at this tour, she delivered! You could not have asked for a better driver in Islam who is not only courteous & respectful but also a very good and cool driver especially maneuvering the challenging roads from Cairo to Alexandria - you feel very safe with him (also nice air conditioned car) and I told him he can drive anywhere in the world! Thank you very much. Ramasside Travel is very lucky to have both of them.

        This two-day overnight tour of Alexandria provided amazing highlights of a city rich in history and culture. Our guide, Wessam, and driver, Mahmoud, took great care of us. Wessam is knowledgeable, energetic, friendly and organized. Mahmoud navigated the challenging traffic with great calm! The sites are an amazing mix of Egyptian and Roman cultures. An evening walk along the corniche gave a genuine feel for daily life in Alexandria (after the cruise ship travelers leave) and evening views along the Mediterranean. Highly recommend.

        I spent an amazing day with Eslam exploring the beautiful city of Alexandria. There was so much to see and do and we had a full itinerary! Eslam really showed us the best parts of the city in a way that would suit our interests and he made sure we experienced the city like a local. We also ate like locals too and he had lots of great recommendations! Thanks for a lovely day in Alexandria.

        Our trip to Alexandria was awesome! Mohammed was an amazing tour guide with so much knowledge! He took us to the Alexandria library and the catacombs before stopping for lunch where we had an amazing view of the Mediterranean. After lunch, we had some Egyptian coffee before heading to the castle and mosques. We had such a great day exploring the city and would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone traveling to Egypt. Alexandria is a bit of a hike, but so worth it to learn about all the history!

        This was a guided tour from Cairo to Alexandria with a driver and guide provided. The drive was about 2-2.5 hours each way and we had four guests in our group. The driver was a safe driver, van was clean and cool, and the guide was very friendly and charismatic, though our group had some trouble understanding his English sometimes during the guided portions of the trip. One critique is the insistence on a good review and tips, which a lot of companies do but I feel the most professional ones aren’t aggressive about it and simply ask once for an honest review, whether good or bad.

        We stopped at a seafood place for lunch along the corniche which was pretty good and had a nice view. For the driving portions of the trip within Alexandria, I felt it was maybe a missed opportunity not to discuss more of the city’s history and nuances, as we really only talked about it during the stops. I would like to learn more about this historic place.

        Overall this is an average tour with a legitimate company and safe driver, I just wish we could have had a deeper explanation of the place and less soliciting of tips and positive trip reviews. Thank you.

        This was such an amazing experience! Our tour guide was very helpful, knowledgeable, and kind. He made recommendations during and before the trip and really made us feel welcome and comfortable. Taking us around and showing us all of the history that Alexandria has in a nice intimate setting with 3 others was very enjoyable. The wealth of knowledge that he possessed and was able to share while showing us the history was fantastic. Would definitely recommend!

        We had a full experience in Alexandria, seeing as much as could be packed in to a 12 hour day along with a 2&1/2 hour drive to and from the city. Our driver, Ashraf, could not have been more of a gentleman. He was kind, hilariously entertaining, and most importantly navigated the traffic with great skill and ease. Our wonderful guide, Wessam, was a gem. She not only knew simply everything, but provided funds for us to purchase souvenirs until we could get to a bank to reimburse her. She helped with the purchase of a beautiful cartouche, a truly treasured souvenir. We came away with a remarkably in-depth education delivered with fun and humor. By the end of the very long day we four were good friends. We had a wonderful day in the historic city of Alexandria.

        We booked this trip just to “add a city” to our Egypt itinerary, but I’m so glad that we went because Alexandria (or Alex, for short) is a fantastic city with so much history that perfectly builds on (and blends with) the ancient Egyptian history.

        Of course, this much love for Alex could only be attributed to Mohammed Salama, our perfect guide for the day. He’s a history buff who knows so much about the history of not only the places we visited, but also the history of the Egyptian civilization as a whole. Mohammed was able to answer all our questions, in many cases down to the exact year! I’m excited to explore the rest of Egypt (and really the broader Mediterranean region part given the influence of Alexander the Great and the kingdoms that came before and after) next with this newly gained knowledge.

        Mohammed was also a great guy all around. He was very organized (he kept letting us what the next few stops were, how long we had in between, and which bathrooms were nicer), but also relaxed and generous with his time. He was funny and played along with our jokes. I think he’ll be great with all groups of tourists, from the most serious history students to the fun crowd to the more introverted groups. I highly recommend Mohammed Salama and can only hope that the rest of my guides on this Egypt trip are as good as he is!
