Editor’s Take

What to Look for in Egypt Tour Reviews

Most trip reviews tend to focus on some or all of these 5 key areas, not all of which may be relevant to you: the tour guide, travel company, service level, country or countries traveled in, and the trip itinerary. Remember, just because you see a 1 star review doesn’t necessarily mean that person disliked the country.

Traveling in Egypt is always going to challenge even the most seasoned of travelers. Having an experienced and knowledgeable guide is particularly important and helpful in Egypt for a few reasons. Firstly, Egypt tours are by and large heavy on history. This can be a great thing if you’re already interested, but could easily become a snooze-fest for young kids and more fairweather history buffs.

Guides who bring the history to life are a huge factor in positive reviews for Egypt. Secondly, while the historical and archaeological sites will be the star, many Egypt tours also visit the cities, where having a local guide is a really great way to experience modern Egyptian life, food, shopping, etc.

Service level in Egypt is mostly in the 3 and 4 star range, with some luxury tours available. Since that is out of reach for most, you should expect to deal with some different levels of comfort than your used to. Negative reviews that comment on service level in Egypt may have simply expected something different.

Nile river cruises and rides on traditional feluccas are often featured on itineraries. A fun experience, but be sure you’re ready for the bare minimum in terms of amenities on board. Additionally some tours in Egypt may feature camping in the desert - which certainly isn’t for everyone.  

Safety is another primary concern of most travelers to Egypt, and positive Egypt reviews almost always comment on their guides ability to make them feel perfectly at ease and safe while traveling through the country.
