Marie, Hassan, Carol and Mary, USA – Custom Family Vacation: Cairo & Nile Cruise
I just wanted to email you and let you know we had a great trip. Everyone and everything was very on time and organized. The Egyptologists were great. Mohamed on the ship and Andrew in Cairo. We also enjoyed Abu Simbel with Sayed. (note sure if this is the correct name for that Egyptologists)?
The ship we were sent to; I don't believe it was the same name given on our trip info. The ship we were on in 2000 had rooms that were bigger. The stay at the hotels were also great.
All in all, you were correct we did have a great time. Hope to use you again in our upcoming trips.
Thanks for you patients with us and our well planned trip to EGYPT.

We have just returned from our Egypt trip, a trip of a lifetime! A big THANK YOU to you, Travelive, and everyone we interacted with from Sakkara Tours.
The entire trip was perfectly orchestrated and could not have been better. The itinerary was balanced with just the right amount of site seeing and time to relax. Starting in Cairo for a few days followed by the Nile Cruise and returning to Cairo for a grand finale at Giza and Sakkara was fantastic. Even the days on the cruise were well balance between site seeing and cruising.
I would not have changed anything on our itinerary except for one small thing. Visiting the El Khalili Bazaar was a bit overwhelming on the first day. Otherwise everyday was unique and wonderful. Abu Simbel was our absolute favorite site and should not be missed!
All the people from the local company Sakkara Tours were great. Marcus and Andrew in Cairo were especially wonderful. Marcus was so attentive to every detail and made arrangements to accommodate our every desire. Andrew was very knowledgeable and although we had read about the things we would be seeing on our trip, he was able to supplement and provide invaluable information and a local perspective.
Many of our friends and family questioned our decision to visit Egypt at this time considering the events over the past year. We would like to express that we felt completely safe and plan to encourage everyone who has ever considered visiting Egypt to go.
Our experience with Travelive has been so positive from our initial request for information that we are already talking about saving and planning for our next trip to Greece and Turkey.

Firstly, THANK YOU for a very special Egypt experience. It was amazing to have our own guide & driver everywhere we went, not to mention being met at the airport & having everything taken care of from that point, including checking into the hotel. It all went extremely smoothly. The local company you chose to use were professional, courteous & knowledgeable.
Secondly, we would like you to pass on our appreciation of the following people who really went out of their way to make our trip memorable:
Hassan & driver Amir – a great introduction to Cairo. Hassan REALLY spoilt us, even managing to arrange an upgrade to a suite for our last night in Cairo. Amr was a driver extraordinaire!
John & Amr – made our 2 days in Cairo memorable. John is a guide to be treasured. Ancient history came alive with him. Amr was another exceptional driver
Ashraf – a great guide for our cruise. He coped with my husband’s sense of humor, becoming a great friend.

Hi Marina and all the Staff at Travelive,
Thank you , thank you , thank you!!!!
We have just returned from our holidays that you put together for us and without a doubt it was the best holiday we have ever had. Every single thing went like clockwork. Every pick up was there at the airports and hotels, always on time. All our guides were fantastic, friendly and efficient and very knowledgeable.
Our Hotels were absolutely great. The Hilton upgraded us as did the Petasos Resort. We loved the Petasos, and what a great position it is in. So close to the beach and lots of restaurants. It was truly beautiful. The Rocabella was very unusual and we had the loft room The sunset from our room was unforgettable. We fell in love with Santorini along with another million people that were on the island.
Egypt was so interesting and we were picked up at the airport by the very efficient Sakkara Group Tours. Everything was there for us. Even to go to Alexandria we had the driver and a chaperone. Our guide was also very good. The JW Marriott was an amazing Hotel, and if I had to comment about anything negative it would be that it was a long way from the city, albeit close to the airport. In fact we didn't mind being away from the city, as it was more relaxing for us. The Hotel is Amazing.
Our Cruise on the Nile Goddess was also fantastic and we enjoyed everyday on it. We were very fortunate as we met some very nice people-1 couple from Sydney and 1 couple from Canada. We had our tours together and we certainly became friends by the end of the trip.
Again I would like to thank you for putting together such an efficient and wonderful holiday. It was a pleasure dealing with you and I will certainly recommend you to my friends.

Thanks for your follow-up. We do not know how we could have been better taken care of. The guides and other personnel were outstanding and we had no problems. We could not believe the personal attention we were given.
Any of our friends who are planning a trip, we are recommending your company. Our two trips have been excellent.
Thanks so much,
Jaycob, Australia- Cairo, Nile Cruise & Red Sea Vacation
Thank you, just got back yesterday actually and straight back to work ( after Egypt we went to Mauritius and then Hong Kong, it was a very long holiday!!
Egypt was absolutely amazing!!! Had such a great time. All the transfers were flawless, everyone at the Sakkara group were very friendly, and the tour guides were very knowledgeable and entertaining. Thank you so much for all your assistance throughout the planning of our trip.
I thought the Nile cruise and all the temples visited from Luxor to Aswan were the highlight of our trip, although I wish the cruise was a much longer!! The view from our floating room was beautiful a perfect seat to watch the sunset.
Abu Simbel was definitely worth seeing, I was amazed how they saved the temple by cutting it in pieces, and how massive it was. And the Pyramids did not disappoint at all!! The main attraction in Egypt was absolutely breathtaking.
It was definitely a memorable experience, I will recommend Egypt to anyone looking to travel, and to definitely book through Travelive.
Sourav & Trina, USA - Nile Experience
We had a fabulous time in Egypt! Our trip was very well organized and the Sakkara tour representatives/guides especially in Cairo were extremely friendly and helpful. I wish we had some more time to visit Abu Simbel....maybe next time!
Thank you for creating a great itinerary for us - we certainly felt that we made most of our time.
