Tour providers

My husband and I are planning a trip to Egypt in Feb. of 2001. We are looking for tour provider recommendations. I would like the tour to last approximately 10 days and include a River Nile cruise. In terms of cost, I would like to spend as least as possible - but still have a fabulous time. Thank you in advance.

We used Globus and felt they were an excellent value. The hotels were 4 star; food was good; tour guides were extremely knowledgeable; and included Nile Cruise. Our tour guide had a 4-year degree in tourism from the Cairo University. Her name was Heba. The cruise ships had just been remodeled; two cabins converted to one (king-size bed, sofa and TWO bathrooms!). Here's their web site:

Have a great, great trip. Egypt is wonderful.

We got back last night from a 14 day (actually 12 days there) tour of Egypt using Grand Circle. If you are 50 or over, you might want to use them. Ours was great, and as soon as I get over jet lag and catch up on a few things here I will post a report. I have never heard anyone say anything bad about Grand Circle---usually raves. Also for the older set, you might want to look at SAGA. Neither of these work through Travel Agents and are lower priced than the major tour companies.
