Best Egypt Shore Day Excursions
Reviewed 23 June 2012

We just returned from our adventure in Egypt, Cairo and Alexandria tour. We were so pleased with the tour from BESE and had the best guide ever, Islam. Islam, an expert in Egyptology and the history of Egypt as a whole. He was professional and made our tour "come to life" with his passion for Egypt and knowledge about the wonderful sites we visited. Of course the Nile Dinner Cruise, Camel Rite, Bazaar Shopping (Khali Kali) and overnight were added bonuses/hidden jems to the tour and everything was "Top Shelf" for this 2 day Best of Cairo Overnight Tour. Highly recommended.
We docked at Port Said and returned to Port in Alexandria. Much cheaper and with a small group of approx 16 as opposed to the large tour bus of the Cruise Ship. We linked up with others on Cruise Critic to arrange this tour.
How blessed we were to have Islam as our guide and the organization and planning from BESE.
Mike and Pam,

We booked our tour with BESE to avoid having to do a bus tour with our cruise ship. By posting our arrangements on Cruisecritic.com we found several other couples interested in joining us, which decreased the costs further. For a most reasonable cost, we were picked up portside in Port Said, busy for two days, accommodated in the 5 star le Meridian Pyramids ( some in our group upgraded to the Mena House) and delivered to our ship in Alexandria right on schedule. Highlights: seeing Pyramids in Giza, Nile River dinner cruise, Egyptian Museum antiquities and the true Egypt experience in the bazaar. Be prepared for chaotic traffic in Cairo, friendly and hard-working guide and driver, and a punctual schedule of activities. No idiaappointments, and a very interesting experience.

We visited the Pyramids & Cairo museum with BESE, as part of a small group, when our ship docked at Port Said.
Booking online was easy and emails were answered quickly and professionally. There's nothing to pay until the end of the trip.
We were collected right where the ship docked and the whole day was very well organised. The guide, Ahmed, was excellent - he lead the visits very well, was very helpful & friendly and gave interesting information throughout the day.
For a fraction of the cost of cruise ship's tour, the trip was much more personal and enjoyable. It included a camel ride at the pyramids & lunch at a nice restaurant overlooking the Pyramids.
