I just completed an incredible 2 week guided tour of Egypt with Amazing Global Travel. What an experience!! Everything was organized exceptionally well - flights, meals, accommodations, activities. The activities included visiting the Pyramids and Sphinx (including a camel ride between them), the Cairo Museum, an early morning hot air balloon ride over the Valley of the Kings, 5-day Nile cruise from Luxor to Aswan, visiting Karnak and Luxor Temples, visiting Philae Temple in Aswan. spending two nights on a Nubian island between the upper and lower Aswan dams, swimming in salt and thermal pools at the Siwa Oasis, and frolicking up and over beautiful sand dunes in a Toyota LandCruiser in the Sahara desert. Each of these activities was a story in itself.
But what really stood out to me about this trip was the friendliness of the Egyptian people and the lengths that Ahmed and Amazing Global Travel went to to insure that our trip was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Everywhere we went Ahmed provided background knowledge so that we could really understand what we were looking at. When you're walking amongst spectacular settings thousands of years old it's easy to get overwhelmed. But the information Ahmed and his crew provided really helped put things in context for me. Ahmed also took us to local markets and stores so that we could interact with Egyptian people. Virtually every time I said hello to someone, their face lit up in a big smile and greeted me with a warm "welcome to Egypt".
I have to admit that I wasn't sure what the reception would be traveling as an American to Egypt. But all of my trepidations were quickly laid to rest as I and the rest of our group were treated with great warmth and friendliness. If you have any inclination whatsoever to travel to Egypt and experience this amazing culture, do yourself a favor and contact Amazing Global Travel and arrange to go. You'll remember the experience for the [...read more]"
We had a very nice experience with our tour. Ahmed tailored the whole program to our needs and we always have been assisted, guided and informed in the best manner. Since the arrival to Cairo everything was so smooth and easy that we always feel at home. Our guide in Cairo, Nasser, was eager to answer our questions or attend our needs.
Special details such as our hotel rooms at Cairo were carefully selected and other extra activities like for instance the entrances to a belly dance show in our last night made our tour memorable.
We took the tour in Spanish, our mother language, and both guides Nasser in Cairo and Osama during the cruise, spoke it very well. They answered all our questions and gave us an understandable frame of knowledge to be familiar with this extraordinary ancient culture. Our only true problem was that we could spend so few days [...read more]"
What an outstanding trip to Egypt I just had. Amazing Global Travel and Barbara Lee of Extended Grace put together a 2 week adventure that included all the usual Egyptian offerings (pyramids, temples, camel ride, hot air balloon ride, Aswan, a visit to the Siwa Oasis plus so much more). They introduced me to the proud people of Egypt and the history of the kings and pharaohs. We learned about their faith as we sailed down the Nile, stopping often along the way, and arriving at Aswan,we spent 2 nights in a Nubian village where we met a wonderful community of people who shared their food, their home and the stories of their lives. Then we returned to Cairo and sped off into the desert to meet the Bedouin people of Siwa. I never imagined the Egyptian desert would have so much to offer. This was truly a unique experience done with class. Amazing Global Travel always did their best to ensure our comfort, our enjoyment and our safety. For me it was the adventure of a lifetime and if you have an adventurous spirt, you will love whatever adventure [...read more]"
I lead cultural immersion experiences for my nonprofit. I teamed up with Ahmed to put together a unique itinerary to learn about Egypt, including ancient Egyptians, modern Egyptians, Nubians, and Bedouins. Amazing Global Travel exceeded every expectation and facilitated a life changing experience for everyone in my group! Every guide on Ahmed's staff does a fantastic job so you can't go wrong, no matter who is leading your adventure. Our time included Cairo, a Nile River cruise, time on two Nubian islands, and at the Siwa Oasis. It was truly astounding!! We are already putting final touches on the next trip and I can't wait to bring more people to experience the hospitality and welcome of Egypt. I bring people all over the world and I this was absolutely an exceptional experience that honored everything I hoped we [...read more]"

Many were small & no other tourists around. Ahmed adjusted to our requests with a smile and always no problem. There is a reason why we repeat with him. QUALITY and value for our dollar.

Ahmed organized our private tour in Egypt (Cairo and Luxury Cruise), we had an excellent experience.
We did a 7 days trip in Egypt, we had one guide in Cairo and another one in the cruise (from Luxor until Asuan). Osama, our guide in the cruise did and excellent job.
Ahmed organized all trip details: local flights, cruise, guides, transfers, etc. Everything was perfectly organized and everybody take care of us at all moment.
Some people informed us that some cruise vessels are old, but we have to say, that our vessel selected by Ahmed was the best and the most luxury, we have enjoyed a lot and we would like to be more days. Additionally, Ahmed always answered our questions really fast and with all clarifications needed before the trip, he also have taken care about us during all the trip.
It has been an excellence experience and for sire we will come back in the near future.
We strongly recommend this agency to organize [...read more]"
My two week visit to Egypt was spectacular! I've been fortunate to have traveled a great deal and this experience is right at the top of that list. I think what made it so special and easy was Ahmed's guidance. Barbara Lee from Extended Grace and Ahmed designed a trip so that we would be immersed in Egyptian culture. All arrangements and accomodations were handled smoothly and efficiently. Accommodations were excellent and interesting. I found Ahmed to be patient, knowledgeable, attentive and just plain enjoyable to be with. His knowledge of the pyramids, tombs, and Egyptian history was excellent. I have some dietary issues and Ahmed was always careful and considerate about my restrictions. He always had tasty alternatives for me. I must say the food was delicious, even the pigeon! The highlight for me was our five day Nile River Cruise on a Dahabiyas. We had at least six crew members making sure we were comfortable. An awesome experience and without any reservation I would highly [...read more]"
