We liked several of the included meals -- however, we did not like the included dinner in "New Cairo" -- it was too far away and the food was not great. We liked the Mojito. We loved the hotels == very good quality. Great meals at the hotels including the wonderful breakfasts. We really appreciated Mohammed's great leadership and help and knowledge. Mohammed and his team obtained "distilled water" for my husband's CPAP machine -- this was a great help to us and we appreciated their efforts to get the water. We appreciated the transportation team's smooth transfers from airport to hotel and so on. We loved the lunch in "New Giza" on our way home from Alexandria. Mohammed provided great tours of so many sites!!

A wonde4ful excursion. Met all my expectations. Vantage had all the details down pat. All the accommodations, meals, tours,etc. we’re excellent. Our guide,Ramy Darwish, was the most knowledgeable and professional guide I have ever experienced. He knew everything,solved every problem, and never left us for sixteen days. I also felt very safe with having security with us at all times.Even the security personnel were helpful when a few of the less mobile passengers needed help.

Absolutely perfect. This was a trip of a lifetime. I felt safe and secure at all times. The Egyptian people were warm and welcoming. Ramy Darwish was knowledgeable and professional. His love for his country enhanced our experience tremendously. I would not hesitate to recommend this trip to anyone interested in a unique and timeless excursion found only in Egypt.

The trip of wonder! How did they do that? This was to comment said over and over for 14 days. Everything we saw was amazing, the sites of Tombs, Pyramids, Temples but much more. After 14 days with our wonder tour guide Ramy Darwish. We learned about the culture, religion, history, food, thoughts, he taught us things that we did not have a clue about!
If you want to go to the land where it all started go. 100% of the time we were taken care of. Never was our safety in questioned. Vantage and the American agency s made sure we were well taken care off.
It is the most unusual trip, when you leave you felt like you went to a part of the world that for most people don't think about because they have a pyramid. All walks of life waving, smiling and welcoming you to their land

If you ever wonder if I should go or not go to the "Land of Wonder" Go Go Go! At all times I thought this is wonderful. My eyes were full with seeing remarkable things, such as Pyramids, Tombs, etc. But thinking back what comes to my mind is the people. Waving to us in the bus from people in other cars, children, even a man in a donkey cart along side the highway. It is NOT you usual trip of just seeing the sites, it is experiencing a completely different culture for most Americans. It just remarkable. With the world changing so much, this exploration of a land so rich with the old and new will not be forgotten by us. Our tour guide was so educated with facts of his country but his kindness and heart felt love he showed to us is what we were so impressed with.

Toured in February 2018. Mohammad Anwar was an energetic, fun, and extremely knowledgeable of Egyptian archaeology and history. His passion for the amazing antiquities we were seeing was infectious. Would recommend Mohammad and this trip if you want to be wowed! Mohammad was also our guide to Alexandria.

Our guide Mohamed Eissa (we fondly called him "Mo") set a new high standard for guides. Mo was the best guide any of us have ever had, and this was a well-traveled group. Mo was deeply intelligent and FULL of knowledge, flexible, fun-loving, sensitive - and a darn good sport. The fast pace and early morning tour times were planned to optimize our experience so that we weren't at any attractions with dozens of buses. He is intuitive, quick-thinking and absolutely adorable. He was attuned to all of our mannerisms, and treated us as privileged children - we teased him about that! The wonders of Egypt would stand on their own, but they were enhanced by the brilliance of our guide. Mo had connections that allowed us to experience things that other travelers, couldn't. He really made the trip for us, and we feel so fortunate to have experienced Egypt with one so wise. Would recommend him to anyone planning this excursion. we came away with a new friend. Go, Mo!

Prior to the vacation I was in a very weird spot in life. I had just graduated from college and felt very lost, and anxious about my current status and my future. Aside from being and incredible tour guide and very knowledgeable Egyptologist, Hazem made a lasting impact on my life. This tour provided extensive education about Egypt but also affected me on a deeper spiritual and emotional level. I will never forget when he translated the Arabic word for 'relax' as 'to leave yourself'. It gave me a deeper meaning of the word and allowed me to 'leave' my anxious mind for the course of the vacation.

Hazem was very caring and attentive to all of his passengers. He always did his best to ensure that everyone was overly satisfied. He was extremely knowledgeable about Egypt's history as well as its contemporary culture. He always found the answers to questions he was unsure of. He went above and beyond as a guide, for this once and a lifetime vacation! Thank you Hazem and Vantage!!
