Anyone use Egyptian Connection out of New York

We're ready to book our tour but wanted to get some feedback, both positive and negative, on the quality of the agent. Anyone ever use them and if so, how was the service and tour? Thanks!

I don't have direct information, but did email someone who has used them and were most satisfied. I have asked this person if they'd take the time to respond. Let's hope they can.

My husband & I used the Egptian Connection the end of September, and never had a better agency to deal with. We saw the ad in the paper, called and talked to Mounir Hanna who sent us brochures, etc. and we booked the trip. We were met at Cairo Airport by the tour agency men who took care of all our luggage, put us in line for immigration, etc. and then to our bus for the trip to the hotel. We stayed at the Le Meridian at the Giza pyramids and it was really a nice hotel. I understand the Sheraton in town is equally as nice. We were met the next day by our Egyptologist and went to the airport to catch our plane to Luxor where we took our cruise out of. The ship was really great, except that most of these have buffets for every meal. You have to be careful of salad fixings, raw fruit, water, ice, but mostly the meals are O.K. The trips along the Nile and back were great, and our guide/egytologist was absolutely great. He was so knowlegeable and a really nice person to be with. When we got back to Cairo he was with us the entire time and everything went very, very smoothly. I cannot say enough good things about this tour group, and Mr. Hanna does a great job with this company. If you need anymore info, my email address is [email protected]
