Our tour guide Hany Mostafa was incredible: he treated us like family, was a phenomenal problem solver with grace under pressure, and there's nothing about ancient Egypt he doesn't know.

    Hany was the best tour leader I've ever had, from any company I've travelled with. We saw so much on this trip and the standard of accommodation was much higher than I was expecting. Egypt is still relatively quiet, and we felt safe the whole time, so it is a good idea to go now before it gets back to pre-2011 tourist levels.

    Hi Claire, thanks for taking the time to share your experience with us. We’re glad to hear that you enjoyed your time in Egypt, and you’re right, now is definitely the time to go! We’ll pass along your kind comments to Hany as well. Hope to see you on another trip with us again soon! Kind regards, Intrepid

    The tour of the temples, tombs and pyramids of Egypt was good, but what made the tour great was our guide, Hany Moutafa. He was unfailingly cheerful, always knowledgeable, and incredibly hardworking [I wondered if he ever slept]. Our group couldn't have asked for a better guide, and I would rate Hany as 5/5.

    Our guide, Hamy Moustaffa, made all the difference: he was throughly professional, incredibly hard working--and he had a great sense of humour! The tombs, temples and pyramids of Egypt were all that I imagined, and more [I added the tomb of Nefartari as well as Dendara; both were really worth the money, and Intrepid might consider them as options]. My only caveat--and it's really outside of what Intrepid can control--is the terrible air pollution affecting Cairo. It made driving in Cairo literally painful. What Intrepid might recommend are really heavy duty masks with valves--we will look like dorks, but at least we will be able to breathe.

Our tour guide Hany Mostafa was incredible: he treated us like family, was a phenomenal problem solver with grace under pressure, and there's nothing about ancient Egypt he doesn't know. If you've always wanted to go to Egypt but have been afraid because of the terrorism situation, I can tell you I never felt less than safe, even when I was on the streets at night with other women. The people are so warm and friendly and the sites are mind-blowing. Highly recommend!

    Sameh\'s knowledge and enthusiasm of his country was inspiring, as well as his desire to help out with any requests we had. It was great to be shown local eating spots and it was a highlight for our group to eat together with the locals.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • Looking through the reviews and someone mentioned this trip was actually from a company called Egypt 7000 and not Intrepid. How does this work?

    While Intrepid is the tour operator, they partner with local companies in order to offer in-depth, exciting optional excursions for the tour during the free time periods. The tour itself is operated by Intrepid and you will be accompanied by a professional Intrepid guide with you for the duration of the tour.
