After researching independent tours to Egpyt instead of paying the outlandish price on the cruise ship I found Ramses tours. From the moment I contacted this company they were very professional catering to our every need. It is a little overwhelming planning something overseas when you do not know exactly who you are working with…the fear of getting off the ship and no one being there!! We paid 1/4 of the price for our overnight shore excusion and instead of having a big tour bus we had our very own private guide and driver plus a 5 star hotel next to the Pyramids!! Islam our guide was brilliant and super helpful.
Bottom line: If you are traveling to Alexandria use Ramses Tours. My experience with this guide and company was by far my highlight of my vacation. No hesitation, this is a great, ligitimate tour company.
