Discover Egypt - Reliable Tour Operator
Author Name: Graeme Johnston
Advantages: Straightforward, professional, well organised
Disadvantages: Watch out for 'shopping trips' stealing your valuable time
We used Discover Egypt for a cruise and hotel deal in March 2009. They are one of the smaller tour operators but we will use them again without hesitation. The arrangements were put in place from this end without fuss and they delivered exactly what was promised. We travelled on Royal Viking, a new addition to the Viking fleet, and enjoyed the whole experience without reservation; great cabins, helpful and reliable staff, first rate guides and perfectly good food even if it did tend to be the same basic ingredients served up in different ways. For the hotel stay we used Maritim Jolie Ville (after much research) and that was absolutely fine; a separate review will be posted for the hotel. Two words of caution: the street traders lining the quayside at Edfu are a bunch of thieves so just ignore them all, and the trip to Cairo we organised through Discover Egypt at the Maritim was OK so long as you INSIST that the guide at the Cairo end does not take you shopping... We lost about an hour of our day before we put our foot down, not entirely Discover Egypt's fault except of course that they chose the local guide...
Summary: Would happily use again
