This was a great trip, made especially so by our guide, Khaleed, a well-trained "Egyptologist" and a wealth of information. If the pyramids, the Valley of the Kings, the Egyptian museum and all the rest, and at a reasonable price, are on your bucket list, Smartours is the way to go.

My trips to UAE and Egypt (Back to back trips) did fulfilled my expectations. I needed better internet service to keep up with my bills while away from home for 20 days.

Robin W

I think smartours is a very good tour company and you select excellent guides top hotels and very good excursions Covering the country and area!. It is also a very good value and value to quality ratio.

Larry J

Excellent tour. Our tour guide is extremely knowledgeable about and has a passion for Egyptian History. He is a Certified Egyptoligst. Used play acting with our group as a teaching tool to better explain and enhance our understanding of Egyptian History. He was very professional and took time to answer all of our questions. He also made sure everything went smoothly. Very efficient.

Bob D

I saw everything I expected to see, and more, which I could not have done on my own. I also learned so much from our guide, Tarek, who was very knowledgable of the antiquities, and enlightened me to the Arab culture.

Duane B

Excellent trip; Excellent guide; Excellent SmarTours coordination of challenging travel logistics in Egypt.

Symphony

This was my first trip with SmarTours (Splendors of Egypt) and I am 110% satisfied with my choice. First off, the website is beautiful and easy to navigate. The booking process was easy, emails were timely with clear instructions, the employees were friendly and patient when I called with questions and the BEST bang for your buck. International flights, domestic flights, bus transfers, hotels and meals included. We visited 3 cities in one tour. PHENOMENAL. I will definitely book with SmarTours in the future. I am 25 and a loyal traveler now.
