Here are some comments from previously satisfied visitors. Read on. Send an email with your comments Comments In July In July\August 2007 we had our first holiday in Egypt. We were a little
apprehensive about what to do and where to go as we wanted to see
everything. Having spent a couple of hours researching the companies
providing tours on the internet eventually settling on Real life Egypt. Best two hours we could have spent.
We saved over £250 per couple on the package company prices and got our
own personal guide and transport (air conditioned people carriers).
our own guide and transport was much better than being in a coach with
another 40 or 50 people. Our guides were extremely good, very
knowledgeable, very good English and friendly. They explained
a way we could understand and we felt we learnt a lot more with this
individual attention, being able to have questions answered so
We made trips to the Pyramids, Sphinx and museums in Cairo, all
arrangements, pick-ups, transport etc. organised by Mohamed. Other
were two to the West Bank, a day out to Abydos and Dendera, a balloon
and a sea plane flight (an excellent way to see historical sites of
West bank and the temples of the East bank. An experience we would
recommend.) All the trips were very well organised by Mohamed and we
most excursions on the day. We did ask Mohamed for a trip around the
Egyptian market in Luxor and he picked us up and spent 2/3 hours with
showing us the market enabling us to buy our souvenirs with out the
and haggling you normally get.
We would recommend this as the best way to see the wonderful ancient
Egypt and also learn, as we did, from the guides the present day
Egypt. It is our opinion we couldn’t have done all we did without the
excellent organisation of Real Life Egypt and we would highly recommend Mohamed and Real life Egypt to organise your itinerary. The whole
experience was stress free. Thank you for helping to make our holiday
special. WENDY AND GEOFF SKINNER
STAFFORDSHIRE Comments 2 I did several half day tours with ReallifeEgypt. I cannot recommend them enough. I contacted them explaining what I wanted to see and they devised an itinerary at a very favourable price. From pick up to drop off ALL my tours were fantastic. Luxor and Karnak temples, Valley of the Kings, Valley of the Nobles, Medinat Habu and the Colossi of Memnon. Absolutely breathtaking to see but best of all with a guide who actually knew his Egyptology. I took my 8 year old son with me who never had a bored moment as our guide made every tour interesting for him.
I have done the big “tour guide” excursions and found them to be rushed, dull and not very informative. This never happened on tours with ReallifeEgypt. I was able to go at my own pace and left to take photographs and soak in the atmosphere.
I have also recommended friends of mine to use them and they have come back full of enthusiam about Hamada and Janet’s team.
I had the pleasure of meeting Janet on my first trip to Luxor. She made sure that I felt comfortable and offered to help me out by taking me to the Souk to get some gifts. It was really nice to meet her and we still keep in touch via email.
I feel that they offer a specialist service in the travel sector as Janet is British and Hamada is Egyptian. Thus combining the two nationalities/cultures to ensure that all customers get the experience that they want especially in Luxor.
I am returning to Luxor this year and will undoubtedly use ReallifeEgypt again. Comments 3 I have just returned from a trip to Luxor in Egypt. I wanted to experiences the culture, meet the people and live a little of the life of Egypt while I was there. I can say in all honesty that ALL my needs were taken into account by Jan and Hamada who gave 100% of their effort and time to make my experience one to remember.
All the trips and tours were designed to accommodate my choices and not pre-programmed by a travel operator for profit. They were also cheaper, on time, transport was air conditioned and clean and drivers/guides were polite. They made me feel that I was the only visitor to Luxor and introduced me to their friends who made me feel that I had known them a lifetime. This quality of committment by Jan and Hamada is worth the visit in itself never mind the attractions. Go and see them. Comments 4
wonderful holiday, made better by the trips arranged for me by Hamada and everyone else involved with Reallifeegypt. Having been given a list of things that I wanted to see and do (East and West Bank sites, Nile Cruise, Balloon ride and Fellah’s tent), Reallifeegypt organised 6 trips (all of which were exceptional value for money), that covered not only the things that I had asked for, but also a couple of attractions they thought that I’d enjoy. They were not mistaken.
Every aspect of every trip went as smoothly as the next, from being collected at the hotel, meeting my guides (all of whom were friendly, knowledgeable and who spoke very good English), having the entrance tickets bought/collected for me, nothing seemed to be too much trouble for anyone.
Isha Allah (God Willing), I will return to Egypt very soon. Hamada and Reallifeegypt will be the first people I shall contact when I do. Thanks again for everything. Gary (Leics.).I have booked to go to Sharm el Sheik in 4 weeks time with a chap from work. He is going there in December with his young daughter, so we decided to have a recon mission to see what they have to offer her. I shall let you know how it went upon my return Janet. In the mean time, if you have any suggestions to help me while I’m there, please let me know. I will also be trying to get back to see you all around late Nov/early Dec if you’re not coming to the UK. Again, will keep you informed. Say hi to everyone for me please, speak again to you soon, Gary.Comments 5Real Life Egypt are the people to call if travelling to Luxor. Mohamed patiently replied to all my pre-visit emails giving lots of advice and suggestions. My wife and I took our granddaughter on a fantastic holiday there and thanks to their help and services we had a once in a lifetime visit to Cairo and the pyramids. Their prices were reasonable and their service was first class. The guide was very knowledgeable and even obtained and paid for medicine for me when I felt ill on the trip. I recommend that anyone planning a trip to Luxor email real life Egypt and plan your tours through them, why go with the crowd on a trip from the hotel when you can have their personal tailored service.David WhiteComments 6We arranged a pick up at the airport, car/driver services, and a full day tour in Luxor October 2011 with Real Life Egypt. We were very happy with their services. Mohamed was very quick to reply via email. We were picked up promptly at the airport and my unusual request of dropping off laundry at a local laundry facility was met no problem. The next day we had a wonderful tour. Our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. I also requested help in carrying my husband’s camera equipment. This was fulfilled, no problem. What I loved about Real Life Egypt was the ability to truly customize our needs without a problem. I also loved how personable and capable our guide and driver were on our tour. I wished I had booked through them for our entire trip. Thanks, Mohamed and your wonderful team for a very memorable time in Luxor. We will use your services again if we return to Egypt in the future.”All the best, Sara
