any good travel companies for Egypt?

Hello. I've posted a message previously about beginning to plan a trip to Egypt for my family of four. I think a packaged deal would be best, even though we've never done a package deal before.
Does anyone have any positive/negative remarks on tour companies (US or Egyptian) that could help guide me on who to be wary of?
Thanks so much.

We used Globus. No complaints. Everything was seamless - transportation always waiting for us when we needed to go someplace. Check-in at hotels easy. We had a big bus, but tour was only half full - if they had to haul around 50 people, it would not have been nearly as nice.

Guide really makes the trip - my understanding is that they are all freelancers licensed by Egyptian Govt and many work for several companies. Ours was great.

Even though it was a tour, we had ample time to do some exploring on our own. Would have liked a little more time in Cairo - if we had it to do over might have considered adding a day or 2 on our own at the end of the trip.

When you compare tour companies, check to see what is included. Most include all admissions, but main difference is choice of hotels and how many meals are included. Important when comparing prices.
