Help recco Egypt Tour

Help! The tour in Feb. by Tauck to Egypt is booked. My mother has her heart set on it and we both have the dates off work 2/5-2/17, which is hard to change.

Can anyone recommend a great tour company? This trip included a Nile cruise, flights within country and the typical sites.

Thanks, I told her to give me 24 hours to try to get a substitute before she panics.
Appreciate any input,

There have been many recommended on here, all of which sound good. You might look at the OAT itinerary. It's the one we're going with in 3 weeks. It includes the things you mentioned, and it has the advantage of being a small group.

While checking the OAT site you might also want to check the GCT trip. Don't know your Moms age or state of health but the last 2 OAT trips I took were very hard on the 75-80 yr. olds. From what I've heard both trips are very good--the OAT version is more physical.

I used Tut Egypt Tours while in Egypt and was very pleased. They do private tours so you can go at your own pace.

Why not call Tauck & see if they can recommend a comparable tour company?

My husband and I just got back from a 2 week private Egypt trip last month and used Egypt Highlights! I could not recommend anyone more. It was a great help to us as our rep Magdy called us every single day to be sure we were alright!!! Nice transportation vehicles and though we added a cruise at the last minute, and didn't ask for a very fancy cruise.. I think they can book you on anything.. we just loved it. (PS I don't work for them.. I also recommend 2Afrika and Ocean Spirit to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia!!!) I hope you get to take this trip Egypt was the trip of a lifetime. Our cost with tons of add ons was only $998. pp excluding air.. but we did 4 star hotels and a morning camel ride and the flight to Abu Simbel and all sorts of things. But I think they are very competative. !! have FUN
