Here are a selection of comments from some of our past customers who have travelled with us in Egypt


Tim Dawson - UK - Egypt Revisited - 1 Apr 2012
"Thanks for organising such a great trip for us! We all had an amazing time and it really opened our eyes to the country, both ancient and modern. Our guide, Emad Hussain was wonderful – very knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating and willing to put up with four archaeologists (including one Egyptologist) for the 12 days. I’m just downloading my 1200-odd photos now..."

Andrew Gowers - UK - Tailor-made - 20 Dec 2011

Tony Harun - UK - Splendours of the Nile - 17 Dec 2011
"Great hotels, cruise and top notch tour guides. A truly memorable trip and once in a lifetime experience."

James Truman - Canada - Cairo City Break - 16 Dec 2011
"A company you can trust. Easy to book and make changes if necessary. Staff in Egypt are friendly and trustworty. You are safe in Egypt in their care. Its a great time to visit because few other tourists are here."

Malinda Roberts - Australian - Egypt & Jordan Adventure - 1 Dec 2011
"I cannot recommend more highly the service and care we received with Egypt Uncovered. From the moment we arrived we were completely taken care of by Abdo. The enthusiasm of our guide, Hamada, was infectious. Thanks guys! 

Lynn Anderson - UK - Custom Family Adventure - 14 Nov 2011
"Highly recommended. We loved building our own tour and having the back-up in the country when we arrived was invaluable. We really felt special to the agents and guides."

Deryk James - UK - Egyptian Family Adventure - 22 Oct 2011
"Any concerns we had about the safety of 'post-revolution' Egypt or its suitability as a holiday destination for young children were soon put to rest. This was a fantastic and safe family holiday made special by the thorough organisation of Egypt Uncovered and the friendliness and knowledge of their guides." 

Mr. E. Ginga - Portugal - Nile Family Adventure - 21 Oct 2011
"The only way to see the real Egypt with kids. The best holiday ever. Ahmed is the best tour guide in the world. Nothing was too much trouble."

Albert Rivera - USA - Splendours of the Nile - 7 Oct 2011
"The time is NOW! "Egypt Uncovered" made my trip the most unforgettable experience; so much so, I plan to revisit, again and again. I can't wait to spread the news." 

Jay Patel - UK - Grand Egyptian Adventure - 24 Sep 2011
"Everyone at Egypt Uncovered was determined to make sure I made the most of my time in this wonderful country. I hope more people will come to Egypt. Tourism is important to the country. Egypt needs you!" 

Chloe Moore - Australian - Private tailor-made - 23 Sep 2011
"Booking and making the itinerary was easy & Ant responded with changes & suggestions quickly. I have never felt so secure and safe and so well looked after as I did with EU."

Simon Chocian - UK - Egypt Experience - 23 Sep 2011
"Egypt Uncovered really look after their customers - from your first enquiry about the holiday - until your flight home. Amazing holiday - thank you everyone!" 

Mark Savage - UK - Splendours of the Nile - 23 Sep 2011
"It has taken us 18 months to get here. 1st volcano, then revolution, but well worth it. Everyone at EU has worked hard to make this a trip of a lifetime."

Zac & Jenny Meadows - UK - Egypt Experience - 9 Sep 2011
"We couldn't recommend Egypt Uncovered enough! Everything from the pre-departure information to the on-arrival meeting, the tour guides & the itinerary to the smaller touches like a phone call to see if we are enjoying our hotel room was fantastic! Thank you to everyone who has made our honeymoon some special. We wish we could offer some 'constructive criticism' but everything was perfect!! Thank you xx"

"We were delighted by Egypt Uncovered overall and will have no hesitation in recommending the company... Almost without exception, we found the local people to be charming, engaging, and just simply nice-to-know... We are especially pleased that our understanding of Egyptian history, politics, economics, social affairs and similar has improved so much."
(John Lowe, Nile Explorer, March 2011)

I would like to re-iterate my sincere thanks to you for your excellent pre booking and pre holiday service that you provided me... Also, I cannot praise enough all your Egypt crew but in particular the Tour Leader, Mahmoud Tarek and the Eygptologist, Mohammed Abdul."
(Joy Moraes, Nile Explorer, March 2011)

"A very responsible and attentive tour company, really well attuned to making sure visitors have a good experience. I would recommend it highly to friends with children."

"I have to admit that this was the best tour company i have ever travelled with. I shall certainly recommend your company to friends and hope to travel with you again."
(Felicity Ling, Nile Explorer, March 2009)

"I would wholeheartedly recommend Egypt Uncovered and its agents to anybody; secure in the knowledge that in receiving the same sort of service that we received they can have no cause for complaint."
(Dr Peter Miln, Tailor-made Egypt & Jordan, March 2009)

"Fantastic country, wonderful food, exceptional diving, beautiful weather - truly a holiday of a lifetime.  From the easy to navigate website to the excellent customer service and helpful, friendly tour reps, the trip was well organised from start to finish.  The tour guide (Ahmed) was outstanding and made the Egyptian history fun and informative.  The whole trip - WOW!!"
(Claire Birdine, Egypt Experience, July 2008)

"When researching the destination and possible packages and tours that were available I found Egypt Uncovered offered the experience I wanted for a price that was affordable. I looked at many different companies but what drew me to yours was the easy to navigate website and the friendly and informative service offered by your staff, whether it be through phone call or email. Once I had decided to book with Egypt Uncovered it was a trouble-free process of payment, flights, information gathering and all the other extras that usually add some form of stress to holiday planning."
