The trip is divided into two very different weeks. During my stay in Egypt, I was always accompanied by my guide and driver, who ensured I had a great time visiting the different sites while learning a lot about Egyptian history. I was also supported during the check-in at the different airports. All the staff is reliable, friendly and they are very client-oriented. The hotels were fantastic. Unfortunately, the Nile cruise was rather old but clean. During the second week in Jordan, I was accompanied by my driver, Moayad. I had a guide only in Jerash and Petra which were ok. Moayad was friendly, accommodating, and caring and he ensured we reached all the sites safely and on time. He was also explaining things along the way. I highly recommend this tour, especially for solo travelers.

This trip was phenomenal! I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to experience Egypt. I took this trip with my sister and her family, including young children. Our tour guide, Ali, was very accommodating and really made ancient Egypt come to life with his knowledge of the history and awareness of our age and interest levels. The Nile cruise, camel rides, pyramids, sphinx, Alexandria, ... all of it, the entire trip was amazing! Everything was arranged and went smoothly. I look forward to another trip to Egypt and will definitely book through Top Asia Tour!

My trip to Egypt was amazing. I met so many amazing people and the Top Asia Tour team took great care of us. Everyone was so much fun to be around. My favorite place to visit in Egypt was Nefertari's tomb. It was just stunning! I never expected to see something like that. The beautiful intense colors, it really was great there. The whole trip was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I will never forget it. I have learned so much on this Egypt tour. I have been interested in Egypt my whole life and our guide was able to tell us things I have never heard before. He was very engaged and passionate. It was very exciting to see this passion. The service was fantastic, and all the food in Egypt was delicious. The Four Seasons hotel in Cairo was amazing, my room was gorgeous. I enjoyed every second of this Egypt vacation. Come to Egypt with Inside Egypt. It is a wonderful country, and you will have an amazing time! Don't be afraid to come. I never felt unsafe there. Come and see everything you can.

TopAsiaTour arranged an excellent 12-day tour of Turkey and Egypt for me at very short notice. Customer service was excellent and all arrangements ran quite smoothly. I would highly recommend his services. I will also be grateful that he encouraged me to keep a hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia on my itinerary when I was thinking of canceling. It was a wonderful experience that I absolutely loved.
This entire trip was such a memorable experience that crossed off so many items on my bucket list. It overshadowed any of the negatives. I will treasure this trip always. Importantly, I felt very well looked after as a solo female traveling across two continents. I highly recommend this tour and will be using TAT again.

This was an amazing trip . We felt we got a lot of value for the price. Some of the hotels were iffy though. I got hurt on the Red Sea snorkeling, and it wasn’t part of the tour I was told. I hurt my knee and will need an MRI here at home. We were well taken care of and protected. Wondering already about a trip for next year. Is there a discount?

I can’t overstate how extraordinary my Egypt tour is. It is run by the kindest, most considerate, most knowledgeable people. And the experience inside is unreal. The tour guides are all highly educated in their fields and share their passion in their heart and soul. The drivers are so kind and fun to be around. What're more the relationships that all members of this team share with the most interesting people in Egypt open doors that would otherwise remain closed. We saw more than we could have imagined thanks simply to them being who they are. We loved every moment and would only ever use them again.

Just a short note to say how much we enjoyed our 11-day tour of Egypt and Jordan. This exceeded our expectations by far!!! I especially would like to commend the drivers and guides provided, especially Ahmed and Ibrahim in Egypt and Mohamad in Jordan. They took such good care of us that I will most certainly recommend this trip to my friends. Thank you so much again.

The tour was wonderful. I mean.....so much to learn & so much to see. Beautiful things that I have never thought I would see. I hope I will come back and learn more about it. I felt absolutely safe, and have never felt uncomfortable in any situation whatsoever throughout the tour. Egyptians are so friendly and kind. Top Asia Tour is doing a good job, in fact, a wonderful job! Very personable and very adaptable to what people want to see. They sort of having a sense of what the group is interested in and they focus on those areas.

Top Asia Tour did a great job organizing and structuring my trip to Egypt. I went with 4 of my friends for a 9-day trip, and we were able to completely customize our experience to what we wanted to do and see. Top Asia Tour was extremely accommodating and easy to work with to make our stay enjoyable and carefree. We were taken care of and informed of everything from the moment we entered the airport. I would highly recommend using them for organizing your trip to Egypt. All of the tour guides were extremely knowledgeable in the areas we visited, easy to understand, and friendly. I would like to specifically recommend Mahmoud Hassan to anyone traveling to Luxor or Aswan. He did a great job and was extremely informative, fun, and a pleasure to work with. We even exchanged contact information, and plan to keep in touch. Overall great experience, and highly recommend TAT.

I cannot recommend this Egypt tour enough. As a travel destination, Egypt is exciting, interesting, and inspirational- people were friendly and I felt safe the whole time and would happily go back. The tour was organized, and efficient, and while offering autonomy to do your own thing [could make decisions to stay at sites longer]. The itinerary (and guides) made you not want to miss any of the activities.

Words can't describe how wonderful this trip was, but I will give it a try. A true trip of a lifetime! I felt safe and secure (thank you Mohammed and Asham). I learned so much thanks to our guide, Noura. She is incredibly knowledgeable. All transfers from place to place came off without a hitch, thanks to Hany. The tours were well planned. Lily responded in a timely manner before the trip, easing any anxiety I might have had. The optional trips were just perfect on so many levels. I have already recommended Top Asia Tour-Egypt to my friends. Thank you again for making this trip a memory of a lifetime.

From start to finish this tour was very well organised and delivered. We were met by two travel agency staff inside the airport in Cairo to assist us through the customs department and then onto the bus to take us to the hotel where we met up with our experienced Travel Guide. The tours to each and every wonderful sight were full of detail and while I think I already knew a lot about ancient Egypt. Our cruise was the highlight, being able to relax and enjoy the varied scenery along the Nile. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone over 10 yrs old.

I traveled with my 12-year-old daughter. The agency made our trip as comfortable as possible. They were always responsive to any questions, feedback, or inquiries; any slight problems we were facing, the agency made sure to address them immediately. The tour guides and drivers in Egypt, Jordan & Israel were like family - prompt, reliable, and thoughtful. We felt safe under their watch. They went above and beyond their call of duty to make sure we were well taken care of. They didn't look at their watches or their designated duties and squabble with our little requests.

What a trip of a lifetime! 
An Experience I will never forget. I've been back two weeks and still think about it every day. Our guide, Noura, is probably the reason. She is extremely knowledgeable, but it is her passion for the country, its people, and its wonders that truly brought to life all of the histories this country offers. The entire team, especially Haney was there every step of the way. From our arrival to anything, we needed every minute. Haney always had a smile on his face. The people behind the scenes - Lily and all the rest of the team. I always felt safe and don't think I missed one thing. Egypt will forever be in my heart

Our Best of Egypt, Jordan and Israel tour is an amazing, lifetime experience. Egypt was beyond awesome. This tour far exceeded all our expectations and was thoroughly enjoyable in every aspect. There were absolutely no hitches or setbacks for the entire duration of the tour starting in Cairo and ending in Tel Aviv. It was smooth sailing from beginning to end. Representatives from the company promptly met us on arrival and assisted us all the way through from acquiring our visas to welcoming us to the hotel and briefing us accordingly. Likewise, similar courtesies were also extended to us through Jordan and Israel by their resident tour companies. All internal flight arrangements were also expertly handled. The 4 day Nile River cruise on the Sonesta Star Goddess was awe-inspiring. Similarly thanks to those staff who were excellent in leading us through Jerusalem and Bethlehem.
