Yes! We used Grand Circle and traveled to Egypt 12/02. It was our first trip with them and we have no complaints. Everything was very well organized. Our tour director was top notch....very knowledgeable. We also took the trip extension to Jordan.....fabulous! Many people in our group had traveled with Grand Circle several times with positive experiences.

Thanks so much for the info on GCT! That is very encouraging. Could you make suggestions on how to dress for this tour. We are going there in November. Thanks again.

I would check dates of Ramadan for this year - I think it is in November. Lots of info has been posted here on traveling to Muslim countries during Ramadan. Something to consider seriously, or at least be informed about.

We did DIY and it was great - use DK Eyewitness Books, and LOnely Planet Guide. Book Accomodation through Amex in Qasr El Nil, near Talaat Harb in Cairo. WHen you get to Luxor - I recommend the tour (but not the hotel) from Hotel Phillippe / EMilio. They usually have someone at the station in the morning sprucing when the o/n train from cairo arrives. Their day tour of the topmbs was cheap and good. the guide was a doctoral student from cairo uni in egyptology and very knowledgeable.
