"Our trip to Egypt was exceptional! I learned a lot about the history of ancient Egyptian and saw how Egyptians live today. The accommodations were spectacular, and Soha was an amazing teacher and guide. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat!"

"Fabulous tour! All of the destinations were as advertised and nothing disappointed. Our tour guide Sherie was the best. She is a degreed expert in Egyptology and helped make the trip so enjoyable. Egypt has been on my bucket list for years and this tour was all I could have hoped for. I travelled with a group of single women friends and we always felt safe and well taken care of. From the moment our flight touched down in Egypt, Smartours was there to attend to whatever we needed. This tour was a great value and I would highly recommend. I will definitely tour with Smartours again."

"Our recent Splendors of Egypt far exceeded our expectations. The hotels provided excellent amenities and everything we needed was available on site. The river boat's food offerings were varied and delicious. But what really made our trip was our tour director, Khaled. He went above and beyond to set proper expectations were set each day and ensured we were prepared for the full day ahead. As an Egyptologist, he delivered information in an engaging way and was always willing to answer questions. He made suggestions about extra excursions or places to eat. We eagerly look forward to our next trip."

"This is a very interesting tour. It turned out to be much more interesting than I expected at advance. To a large extent, this was facilitated by the Program Director Mrs. Soha Sabbour. I will recommend this tour to my friends."

""The Splendors of Egypt" was our eleventh SmarTorus trip. As usual, it was an incredible experience. We can't say enough about our tour guide, Soha. Besides being an outstanding organizer and trouble-shooter, her local background and education as an Egyptologist gave us a welcome extra understanding of the culture(s) and history of Egypt. Her experienced local assistants helped make everything run as smoothly as possible. The riverboat for our Nile cruise was far more comfortable that we had expected, with a spacious cabin and attentive crew. Granted, there are a couple of early wake-ups during this trip, but they were actually welcomed by our experienced group of travelers (just a few good-natured groans) as they allowed us to get a jump on our filled days, and a jump on other tour groups. All in all, another great experience with smarTours. Can't wait for another "smart" adventure. Marsha & Joel"

"Our Egyptologist guide, Dina, was a marvel. She enthused the entire trip with her knowledge and love of country. The trip exceeded my expectations, with the exception of the airline controlled timing of the excursion to Abu Simbel. Our time there was frenetic and unfortunately brief. That information was not included in pre-trip sales details. The Movenpick boat was fabulous, and the treasures of antiquity amazing to see."

"Our trip to Egypt with Smart Tours was great. We traveled with a terrific group of well traveled people ranging in age from the 20s to the 80s! I'd be happy to see any one of them at any future trip. The accommodations were all very good and we were well taken care of by attentive but not overbearing staff. Our guide Tarek was really great. He was passionate about the beauty of the incredible ancient sites of Egypt. There is a concern about safety in Egypt and between the tour company and the tourism department in Egypt we felt safe at all times, with a security agent with us in addition to the guide and also the government provides police escort for the bus. In addition, my husband developed a respiratory bug about 2 weeks before our trip and was sure he was on the mend before our trip, but about a week into it took a turn for the worse. We were so grateful to Smart Tours for the attention they gave him. He was taken to a clinic and was accompanied throughout the appointment with a doctor who took an X-ray, blood test and administered antibiotics and then monitored for the next 2 days with a nurse coming to check on him even. We really appreciated the attentive health care. My only criticism of the way the tour is set up is the tipping situation. I like tipping those people like the guide who was with us the entire trip and driver who was our main driver. I felt that it got a little confusing when we had a different driver for just a day or had the security agent on the bus. I would like those incidental tips to be added to the cost of the trip up front so there wasn't the constant small tipping we did on those days. Overall, I would be confident to reccomend Smart Tours and to travel again with them myself and I want to thank you for this great experience!"
