Hi Elizabeth: What a terrific report! I have always wanted to go to Egypt. You answered many of the questions. I would like to email you directly with thoughts. Did you arrange your own flights? Did you fly from the US or another country? I had been recommended to go in Feb but in one posting you said it was too cold to go in the water? Thanks Johanna

Hi Elizabeth,

I would like to ask question in regards to cost. The email address you have providedon this website bounces back i.e. [email protected]

Do you have an alternative email address that I can use.

Thanks.

Angel, we were in Egypt just last month, on a private tour through Lady Egypt. If I can be of any help (as Elizabeth and others were to me), please email me at [email protected] (my "public" email address).

Elizabeth-
I just emailed you some brief questions (should come through as Kathy Healy - kamkerrigan at gmail dot com).

Thanks for such an informative trip report!

Hi Elizabeth - Thank you so much for your informative emails! I just returned from my 2 week trip to Egypt and Jordan this past December 2012. It was AMAZING. I am so glad we decided to book our tour with Ahmed Hamed Yousif ([email protected]). You were absolutely right - Ahmed made all of our travel arrangements and we could not have asked for better. I was initially worried about travelling to Egypt but Ahmed really made us feel safe. In fact, I would argue that now is the best time to travel to Egypt. The prices were really reasonable and it was nice to be able to walk around the tourist sites without the normal big crowds. We also stayed at the Mena House in Cairo. It was fantastic waking up right next to the Great Pyramid. I would highly recommend Abu Simbel. I loved the Nile Cruise and all of the temple sites on the way to Luxor. Ahmed truly did an amazing job by arranging a 5 star trip for less than the big tour operators. All of the guides Ahmed hired in Egypt and Jordan were smart, informative and great fun. I would definitely go back to Egypt in a heartbeat!!

If anybody reads this and would like more information, please free to contact me. I almost feel like I should pay it forward after having been the recipient if so much kind advice. Anyways, happy travels everyone!!
