Dec 27-31, 2010 (5 Day Nile Cruise Luxor to Aswan )

Dear Mr. Elsergany,
We all came back enchanted from our cruise. Everything went smoothly, the boat was classy, the food and service were excellent.  Everything went as planned from the beginning to the end.
Thank you for arranging this trip for us. We have Canadian friends coming to Egypt at the end of February and they intend to take the cruise. We will certainly recommend your company and will provide them with your coordinates.
Our best wishes for the New Year.

Dec 16-26, 2010 (11 Day Egypt Pharaonic Tour)

Dear Mr. Medhat, I hope I am not bothering you. I only wanted to express my gratitude of setting up our Nile Cruise and with supplying us with on of the best tour guides a family could ask for.  Mr. Hatem El Ballal was an absolute Gentle man. He treated us like the Royal Family. His knowledge of the Egyptian History and of the sights we visited were second to none. His patients and understanding of a simple family with children were absolutely excellent. Please pass onto him our highest regards in the way he took care of me and my family. I do hope to have him again as a guide for our next visit.

Also I would personally like to thank you for the cruise ship and accommodations you booked for us. I could not have asked for better. The rooms were very nice and food was fabulous. We had a very good time that will not soon be forgotten. Our memories of Egypt will last a life time, and with over 1800 photos I am sure the children will also remember for years to come. I apologize for taking up your valuable time. I only wanted to send you my thanks for taking care of me and my family so well. You will be the first I contact for any future arrangements regarding Egyptian Cruises. Thank you so much sir. Have a great day.

Dear Medhat,
Thank you so very much for helping my daughter, Nicole, and me plan our trip to Egypt. We had a very wonderful trip, and we loved every part of it. 
Our itinerary of staying three nights in Cairo before we began the Nile River cruise worked out very nicely. Our guides on the trip were all informative and helpful, but Timo, whom we met in Aswan was really an excellent guide. His knowledge of the history of the temples and tombs really helped us to understand every site that we visited, and he made Egypt's mythology come alive. We enjoyed our Nile River cruise on the Lotus so much.
I would be more than happy to give Right Travel a glowing recommendation to anyone who is considering booking a trip to Egypt with Right Travel. I have already recommended your travel agency to some friends.
Thank you, again, for helping us have a trip of a lifetime.

Dec 02-13, 2010 (12 Day Prince of Egypt Tour)

Your staff was great and did a good job herding us around and keeping us away from the "aliens", as Asraf so affectionately called the vendors. Your Egyptologists were knowledgeable and entertaining. All of the tours were great. We got to see a lot of history and great places.

We really appreciated that Yasser got us the SIM cards. They were $7 per phone; and we were were able to keep in touch with our friends on the trip and your staff when we were touring the country.

Thank you very much for a memorable vacation. The tours were awesome!




Nov 30-Dec 07, 2010 (8 Day Egypt Classical Tour)

Hello Medhat,

Thanks for the email and we had a very enjoyable trip in Egypt. The guides were very nice and conducted us around and everything went well. No complaints!  we arrived in Bangalore this AM after our flight from Cairo. Please convey our thanks to your staff in Egypt for a job well done.We do not hesitate to recommend your agency to our friends. Keep up the good work!



Nov 22-26, 2010 (5 Day Nile Cruise Luxor to Aswan)

We, Sasaki's team, have safely return to our homes after the nice journey in Egypt. We'd like to present much thanks to you for our nice and exciting trip and relaxing Nile cruise with the nice guiding Egyptologist, Hassan, arranged by you. We all enjoyed the trip.
We hope we can visit again in Egypt.

Best regards,



Nov 19-28, 2010 (9 Day Egypt & Istanbul Panorama)

Thanks for all the details you had worked out for our trip. I had promised you that I will write you a paragraph so here is my experience. It was our first vacation in our older life and we were  nervous about how it will go. Your agency did a commendable job throughout and we really appreciate your arrangements and your care for your clients. Pick up and drop off was always punctual, guides were patient, efficient, pleasant and knowledgeable. Hotel stay everywhere was comfortable and all care was taken to make our visit enjoyable. Thanks again. I have already referred you to many freinds and personally would be interested in the Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and also Nairobi Safari for future.



Nov 18-27, 2010 (10 Day Egypt in Depth Tour)

We had an awesome trip. Both Egyptologist were professional and knowledgeable and very fun to be with. The Right Travel team took exceptional care of us and insured we were everywhere we needed to be on time and were true professionals.  I have already recommended and shared your website with others here who are interested in visiting and exploring Egypt.
Thank you very much for a great time.
Very Respectfully,

Nov 08-23, 2010 (15 Day Egypt Grand Circle Tour)

Right Travel worked hard to ensure our comfort and satisfaction. You succeeded. For most of the tour my wife and I were the travel group. This privileged condition allowed constant attention with your accomplished guides. On board the ship, the well-appointed M/S Stephanie, and the meals on board was excellent. Another four Americans joined our tour  making a tidy group of 6. Our guide, Ashraf, a most pleasant man of patience, good humor and steeped in history, immeasurably added to the success of the Nile cruise. Our dinner with Yassar, your man in Cairo, was a highlight given the evening's warmth and conversation, our two week Egyptian tour is one to be remembered.

Nov 05-14, 2010 (10 Day Egypt by Rail Tour)

We were very pleased with our tour of Egypt and will be happy to serve as a reference. Our tour guides: Hend, in Cairo and Ashraf, on the Nile cruise were enthusiastic, well-informed and articulate. Mustafa reliably met us at all of our destinations. We also wish to pay special tribute to Rami our driver in Cairo who calmly and professionally negotiated what must be the most insane traffic anywhere in the world.

Nov 02-16, 2010 (15 Day Egypt Grand Circle Tour)

I have been more than an amateur Egyptologist and even teach this subject as a local community college. I have dreamed of this trip for more than 45 years and was not disappointed.

I was impressed with your personnel from the time we cleared customs and found a representative waiting to take us to our respective hotels. I was delighted that our numbers were limited and we got to know the three other travelers who we found very pleasant.

Our hotel, the Grand Hyatt - Cairo, was superb. We met our Cairo tour guide, Alia Muhammad Tohamy, on our second day (first day to tour) and she was excellent.  I would think it would be difficult to deal with older Americans set in their ways with their own priorities but she was a masterful diplomat, excellent and knowledgeable guide, patient and punctual representative of your organization.  We all enjoyed her very much and she did everything possible to make our stay in Cairo a pleasant one including offering to take many of the typical tourist pictures at various sights. We give her our highest recommendation for any future tours.

Amr El shikary was our guide for the next 8 days in the Luxor region and down to Abu Simble and back. Everything was very smooth and timely. "Pedro", as he likes to be called, always assured that everything ran on time without complications or concern. He was a knowledgeable and friendly person, even putting up with me who wanted to move to the sights without explanation since I was versed in the material as a result of years of study. He also had a wealth of information which he conveyed and was appreciated.
I would most assuredly recommend your company to anyone looking for a travel agent. Certainly, 17 days in Egypt, could be tyring but even my wife, not a seasoned traveler and one that is uncomfortable with heat, did an excellent job as a result of the expert attention we received and the small personal transportation that was always arranged. If there is one thing that frightens me it is large tour buses of Americans pushing their way around. I was so happy to be given small, individual attention that I never imagined. We were most pleased!

In fact, our next concern is our next trip and where to go. I now know that I will be traveling with you again, I just have to consider where. Thank you for making a life long dream come true, including taking a hot air balloon ride which Pedro was able to arrange in Luxor.
Food was good, guides were great, transportation, was more than appreciated for cooperation and timeliness, and the sleeping accommodations were excellent. Thank you for your attention to so many aspects of what could have been a difficult adventure.

We are sending a note of thanks for the great way your company looked after us on the Cruise/Cairo/Alexandria part of our trip.  Everything went as planned. We enjoyed the MS Monica.  Alaa was with us for the Cruise and we enjoyed his company. He was willing to share his knowledge with us on the boat as well as at the sites.  Being a group of four we had private transportation and an Egyptologist all to ourselves. We felt quite spoiled. Husein in Cairo was very kind and knowledgeable as well.
Just a note on Pricing. We have always saved by planning and booking trips ourselves. This time we found that Right Travel met our prices and we had the added assurance that everything was being done professionally. That meant a lot to us and we would recommend Right Travel to everyone planning a trip to Egypt. Thank you Medhat for your time and patience in answering our questions. Hopefully we will be able to use you again in the future.

Well we have returned home and finally settled in.  Sorry it took so long to reply to your email. So here is goes - We had a great time, it was a wonderful experience, everyone associated with Right Travel exceeded expectations. All were helpful and gave us a great time. All the tour personnel were A+. Eqypt is a wonderful country we hope to return some day.

We would recommend your services and Agency to any one.
Thanks Again for everything.

SUBJECT: Joyful Journey

Thank you, Jace, for the most exciting and educational journey I have ever experienced. The Egypt trip and seminar was beyond my highest expectations. The group was exceptional and supportive. The course materials were mind boggling, and my understanding of the Universal connection to trading took a leap forward as great as the Pyramids themselves. I am forever grateful for this opportunity of a lifetime. And did I mention that it was a Sun boat-load of fun to boot!



Dear Jace

I just want to thank you for the tremendous amount of work you put into organizing the Egypt trip, producing the comprehensive DVD’s and the  generosity of your time to teach us during the trip – especially those extra hours at airports and between site seeing! (Especially memorable is the 7 hour “Site seeing” trip to the Aswan Airport!) The information gained has moved us all to a higher level of understanding and I feel really privileged to be learning from someone as knowledgeable as you. Many thanks again.



Hi everyone

We would like to express a big THANK YOU to John for his commitment and dedication to this wonderful trading journey. This trip was amazing and educational. We are also grateful for your willingness to share John and to witness how you live in 'harmony'. Thanks John for allowing Julie to sit in on sessions.

Thanks to the Egypt group for your support and it was great to finally put faces to the names. This group has great energy and look forward to growing and sharing this journey with you all.

Sep 23 - Oct 05, 2010 (13 Day Legend of Egypt Tour)

Dear Medhat, I'm writing to thank you for such a wonderful tour of Egypt. It was the first time we've used a travel agency and we were wowed by the coordination and experience.  A representative met us at each airport when we arrived, the Egyptologists were great and getting us back to the airports for connections and the flight home was so convenient and well timed.
All three of the Egyptologists we worked with, Husein in Cairo, Alaa on the Nile cruise, and Mostafo in Abu Simbel were knowledgeable about the sites and did an amazing job of getting us into the sites before the crowds were there. (I've probably spelled some names wrong, I'm sorry.) The attention and guidance from Alaa was incredible. All three of us were amazed to have him with us for the whole cruise.
I'll write a note about our experience on Travel Advisor in hopes of letting others know what a great agency you've been to work with. When we next head to the middle or far east we'll definitely be back in touch.


Sep 14-27, 2010 (14 Day Egypt Jordan Jerusalem Panorama)

Our recent vacation to Egypt, Jodan, and Israel was very exciting, interesting, and informative. It also was very HOT and strenuous, especially for two senrior citizens. It kept us busy and we did get tired, but it was well worth the effort.
Your company provided us with the information we needed to get to our hotels, airports, etc. Everything you provided in our information packet was very accurate. The guides, drivers, local guides, etc. were very helpful and courteous.

I want to mention how much we appreciated the guides we had. We especially thought a lot of Emad whom we met in Aswan, Egypt. He was very helpful to us, he went out of his was to take care of our needs. He really was informed about ancient Egypt. We appreciated him very much.
Thank you,

Our trip to Egypt was amazing. I would say that it was the best trip we have ever taken.  We have traveled with companies like Contiki, EF, Carnival, Norwegian, etc. Right Travel provided us with the best accommodations both in the hotel, the Mena House Oberio, and on the cruise ship, Sonesta St. George. The hotel was literally at the base of the pyramids. The cruise ship was outstanding. The rooms were huge with full bathrooms with jacuzzi tubs and every room had a balcony. We had private Egyptologists every day and we traveled in a private car with our guide the entire time. While it was extremely hot, 122 degrees, the temples other sites were not at all crowed during the summer. We were treated like royalty the entire time. I highy recommend Right Travel for anyone who wants to travel to Egypt. We saw everything.

Thanks for all of your assistance,


June 05 - July 06, 2010 (31 Days Custom Tour Egypt)

Thank you again for the cooperative manner with which you accepted my itinerary for our month in Egypt. You were exceptionally polite and
helpful in every way and it was very encouraging to know that my itinerary and hotel choices would be available for those dates. I had specific
reasons for each hotel and you did not discourage any of them.  Mr. Yasser or someone from your agency accomplished upgrades and/or our
specific desires for bed size and non-smoking rooms. We are very grateful for these courtesies.

Hussein and driver Gilanni, in Cairo and Alexandria, were very helpful and engaging and we appreciated the energy and effort they exhibited to
follow the itinerary and answer all our questions and repeats. Our days at the Mena House were just fabulous. We are so fortunate that they
delayed the closing of the Palace.

The trip across the Western Desert, the guide Ramses and drivers, Rafaat and Ramaden, were great. We had quite an adventure with the first Jeep driver on the Great Sand Sea. Ramses was very personable and knowledgeable and might be a good reference for you. We took him to a couple of places he had not been before. Our eco-lodges were just what I had hoped they would be. I think my husband was secretly happy when we found the Al Moudira in Luxor. Mr. Yasser had arranged for a palace within a palace for us and it was great in every way. The staff was very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed complimenting the Lebanese lady who was responsible for the design and building of this lovely property.

Ashraf, our Egyptologist in Luxor, was perfect for us. There was always patience for another question and he seemed to enjoy sharing this part of Egypt with us. (We later recommended Ashraf/Right Travel to the Australian family on the Lake Nasser cruise. They needed a guide in Luxor. I hope they found him.) For me, Abydos and the Temple of Seti I will never be forgotten. Of all the temples we visited, it must surely be the most beautifully designed, executed, and maintained of all. Abydos and the Library in Alexandria were worth the trip for me.

There was never a time when we not met promptly by the representative of Right Travel. Your agency was always where you said you would be-when you said you would be. We slept pretty well on the train, but it took almost fourteen hours. Again we were met by Right Travel and taken to our final hotel. Mr. Yasser had arranged an early check-in and apparently a Premier King room which overlooked the garden zoo and the pyramids in the distance. What a lovely hotel property. We could not believe it was ten years old. It has been carefully maintained and the staff is incredible.

Our family and home were safe during our absence.  We are so delighted to have traveled safely in Egypt and thank you and your company for our lovely adventure.


Jun 09-12, 2010 (4 Day Dahabiya Nile Cruise)

Hello. We had a wonderful time on our Egyptian trip. Hend was our guide in Cairo. She was very knowledgeable and helpful. Abdullah was
our guide on the Nile boat. He was knowledgeable and took good care of us. The boat trip was fantastic and the crew was very accommodating.
Thank you for everything.

May 25-Jun 05, 2010 (7 Day Egypt Air & Land with Sharm)

I am not sure if there is enough good things I can say about the trip I had with you guys.  It was the experience of a lifetime and it was only possible because of you!  The packages were spectacular, the guides were wonderful and it was worth every penny!  Even when things went awry in the end it wasn't hard to fix everything and my satisfaction was through the roof!

Everyone I dealt with in Egypt was great and a pleasure to be around.  The guides knew more information than even I could process, the drivers were courteous and didn't scare me too much with their driving (I will never be used to the roads in Cairo) and the bevy of sites, restaurants and different experiences I was able to cram into my stay was second to none!  The accommodations both in Cairo and in Sharm were way beyond what I was expecting as well!

You guys have hooked me into travel, and you can be sure that when I next go abroad you will be the first company I look at, and most likely the only one!  Feel free to use this on your web site or any advertisement you wish so that everyone can know how great a time I had!

May 03-12, 2010 (10 Day Egypt on Sale)

I had a wonderful trip to Egypt, and would like to thank you and all at Right Travel for providing very smooth services during my entire stay. Right Travel (easy to identify by their professional logo plus my name) was there to meet me at Cairo airport. They were prompt, courteous, and very professional at all times. Driver Gelani proved to be the best driver in Cairo, as he deftly drove through the most difficult areas of this very busy city. Highways, back roads and city streets were no problem, and provided me very clear and exciting views of everyday living. All of the drivers were so professional and drove new mini buses with air conditioning, and, as I was the only customer (most of the time) I felt the service provided by both tour managers Alia (in Cairo) and Ashraf (Nile cruise) was top class. Alia introduced me to the taste of fresh bread as it came off the open fire, and Ashraf showed me how to drink the local coffee.
A vast array of delicious food was provided for all meals by the The Oasis hotel and cruise ship Stephanie, as well as special lunches at unique restaurants when on the daily tours. The overnight train at Giza (although an old train) was on time, and the food provided was
surprisingly delicious. Service on the train was also good and the fold-down bed was very comfortable. I would recommend using the bathroom on the train early in the trip, as it may get a little untidy later.
I would definitely use and recommend Right Travel again for both excellent service and very low group numbers (10 or less).
Thank you again for a memorable trip.


Apr 29 - May 11, 2010 (13 Day Legend of Egypt Tour)

My wife and I would like to thank you very much for a very enjoyable and memorable trip to Egypt. We would especially like to thank Essam and Egyptologist Hussein Ahmed for a wonderful tour of the historical sights of Cairo and for arranging in the case of Essam excellent accommodations at the Mena House Oberoi. Also, we would like to express out sincere appreciation to Ahmed Waziry and Egyptologist Mohamed Al Taher Ali for looking after all of our needs during our trip from Luxor to Aswan aboard  the Nile cruiser Radamis 1. Mohammed provided very interesting descriptions of the historical sights in Luxor and Aswan and at various locations between these Egyptian cities. Also we would like to thank him for his friendship and descriptions of current day life in Egypt. We will certainly highly recommend Right Travel to anyone that we encounter who is interested in touring Egypt. Thank you again,

Best wishes,

Apr 28-May 08, 2010 (10 Day Egypt Luxury Tour)

I think I can speak for both Jenise and I, that the trip was AWESOME!!! We had a great time and will definitely visit Egypt again in the future,
refer right travel to friends, and use right travel again for our future trips. We learned and experienced so much in our trip.

The only comment made is that my transfer back to the airport was not included on the itinerary (which I was not sure why not).
However the tour manager in Egypt asked if I paid for my transfer, which I explained to him I did. He said that he trust his customers
and included my transfer without referring to you which I thought was excellent customer service. The way they approached this issue
makes me want to travel again with right travel back to Egypt in the future.

Apr 26-29, 2010 (4 Day Nile Cruise Aswan to Luxor)

Dear Mr. Yasser,

Marla and I want to thank you for a truly fantastic cruise.  Your commitment to our comfort and sucessful cruise, in spite of the availability problem of M/S Monica, was outstanding.  The transition was seamless and the accommodations, food, and service were excellent.  Your personal calls to us were very much appreciated and clearly demonstrated your customer commitment.

Your tour program, including the local transportation was also excellent.  Mr. Tamer Meky was a fantastic tour guide.  He was very professional, personable, and knowledgeable.  Having such a competent tour guide made the entire experience unforgettable. 

We traveled with my Brother Bill and his wife Linda and continue to talk about the trip.  We have also discussed our experiences with several friends and have told them that, should they decide to visit Egypt, or any other Right Travel served location, Right Travel should be their only choice.

Thank you again for an unforgettable experience.

May 03-07, 2010 (5 Day Nile Cruise Luxor to Aswan)

Just a quick note to let you know how extremely pleased that we are with the trip that we booked with you for the 5 day Nile cruise. To be frank, your price seemed almost too good to be true, so I had prepared myself for a few let-downs, but you have far exceeded my expectations!

The accommodations were great, the crew staff was always friendly and helpful.
But the real gem in our trip was our tour guide, Ashrof. His Egyptologist background made each and every temple that we visited a special event. His English was far superior to all the other guides that we heard at various ruin’s. His assistance when working with various Arabic speaking people along the way made everything run smoothly.

It amazes me that everything ran so smoothly, when there are so many things that could have gone wrong. Thanks for making our memories of Egypt so great. We will be sure to pass your name along to our friends and business associates.

Apr 26-29, 2010 (4 Day Nile Cruise Aswan to Luxor)

Good day Mr. Yasser,

I had to take the time on behalf to the entire Kopycki family and tell you what a great time we had in our dealings with your company. We could not have asked for any better service than we received from all of the people we came in contact with. My wife and I are not world travelers but we have been to Egypt several times. It was always a chore for us to deal with guides and drivers etc. But your representative Mr. Tamer Meky made our adventure absolutely worry free. He provided us with all the attention we could ask for. From needing bandages to finding diet coke for us.

When we talk about our trip, the first thing we mention was the excellent service we received from your staff. Believe me, you will be highly recommended to all we come in contact with. Again thanks to all of your people for helping create a memorable trip for all of us. And please let Mr. Meky know how much we enjoyed our time with him.

Medhat: This was the trip of a lifetime!  I'd read about Egypt,especially ancient Egypt, dreamed of going there, and finally got to experience actually being there. It was rigorous, awe-inspiring, and mesmerizing. There was so much to absorb at times I felt my head was exploding. I  feel that our tour truly gave me the depth and breadth of ancient Egypt and our guide Hussain was so knowledgeable and engaging that it made for a wonderful tour. Truly wonderful, and full of wonder, that's how I'd describe it. Every aspect of the trip was well planned--the lovely  Mena Hotel Oberoi, the ship, the flights worked out perfectly. Hats off to you  and you staff!!  (I wish I know how to space this note better)      Sincerely.

LaCuyetunia Todd

As each day passes, now that I have returned home and done much reflection, I am more pleased with my recent trip to Egypt. I have traveled extensively. I think I am now going to have to rank this tour among the best I have ever taken. Aside from the experience of the wonderful Egyptian people,their history and their culture, the logistics of the trip itself were very well planned and carried out. I also feel that I received everything I paid for and then some. Kudos to you and your agency for doing a super job. Thanks.

Yvonne Brady


It was a pleasure to meet you all.  The trip was an amazing experience, and all of our arrangements came off without a hitch.  Kudos to Oliver and Sharon for setting things in motion and for directing us to Medhat; he is an excellent travel advisor.  And, how lucky were we to have Hussain as our tour guide.  He was superb.   Everyone was extremely delightful and will be etched in my memory forever.  

Fondly, Linda

Just wanted to convey to you just how much I enjoyed our trip through Egypt together. I return with wonderful memories of our times together and the part that each of you played in making this a special experience. From Raleigh to New York to Cairo through Abu Simbel, we were inspired by each other and the many historic sites we saw. It is nothing short of phenomenal what mankind was able to achieve absent the availability of modern tools and machines. It shows us that creativitiy and intelligence are not limited to us moderns. I look forward to sharing the many photographs that we took and to an ultimate reunion of us who made this historic journey.

Mar 25-Apr 04, 2010 (11 Day Egypt Pharaonic Tour)

Taylor, my granddaughter, and I had a wonderful trip to Egypt.  Our  Right Travel guides were friendly, informative, helpful in many ways and truly extended themselves to assist us especially when my granddaughter came down with travellers diarrhea.  We were provided with medication which helped her considerably.   
Since we had to improvise due to her illness, Right Travel assisted us in providing other points of interest for us to see due to our inability to keep up with our original itinerary. I will highly recommend Right Travel to all for an exciting and adventureous trip to the Land of the Pharaohs.  
I would also like to point out that at No Time did we feel unsafe in any way traveling through Egypt with our guides. At one point we were actually accompanied by an agent to protect us, as Americans,  - if necessary - as we headed up toward Alexandria. That was a precaution taken to make sure our trip would be a safe one. I would like to thank you for suggesting this splendid trip/itinerary which we enjoyed immensely.

Mar 24 - Apr 04, 2010 (11 Day Egypt Pharaonic Tour)

Medhat, now that we're home and rested, I wanted to send you this quick note of "Thanks"!
The trip to Egypt that you coordinated was far greater than my expectations. If I were to tell you what the highlights were, they wouldn't start with the obvious (Pyramids, Sphinx, Temples, etc). It would start with the tremendous service and support of your entire team. Everyone from you and your team to the drivers and Egyptologists throughout Egypt to the cruise were tremendous. Their was an obvious sense of pride in what they were doing and making sure that the "customer" was always taken care of. They were tremendously accomodating, informed and even resilient in meeting changing demands.
In one phrase, this trip exceeded my expectations ten fold and we came back with an appreciation of the "Richness" and "Diversity" of the Egyptian people and their culture. Thank you very much and we'll be back,

Mar 19- Apr 02, 2010 (Custom Tour Egypt)

Dear Medhat,  It was indeed a wonderful trip and your Right-Travel representatives at each stop smoothed the way for our family. They were friendly and efficient in taking care of meeting us at each stop, handling baggage, ticketing and transportation. And seeing that we got on the right plane! Internal Egypt Air travel was easier than I anticipated and I think that was because your Right-Travel team was there to help our family of 9. The side trip to Abu Simbel was spectacular and the Oberoi Mena House and Philaie Nile cruise exceeded expectations. This was the trip of a lifetime for my family and they loved Egypt and its people. Your handling of the trip from the New Jersey end was excellent and it was a pleasure to do business with you.

Best regards,

Mar 09-19, 2010 (11 Day Egypt & Red Sea Panorama)

Finally over "jet lag" and almost back to normal.  Just wanted you to know that our trip was just wonderful.  All of our guides were fun, they knew and gave us so much information and we all really felt well taken care of.  The people in Egypt were so warm and friendly and it was great taking to them about their lives.  It was just so comfortable being with all of them.  The Triumph hotel was great, although the food in the dining room at night was not as good as we had hoped, breakfast was wonderful.  The boat we were on was absolutely was GREAT, staff professional and really fun and friendly.  You should have seen the great figures that they made for all of us out of towels, really funny and creative.  Of coarse I had to get pictures with the artists.  There was just lots of laughter and good feelings.
Just want you to know how much we appreciated all of the hard work that you and everyone in Right Travel did to make our experience one of a lifetime.  I would definitely recommend your agency to others. All the best, Jill


Mar 09-16, 2010 (8 Day Egypt Classicl Tour)

I want to thank your agency for such an incredible experience with wonderful people. I cannot recall the names of all the people who went above what we thought was expected.  What was so good to hear was that each person who works for Right Travel commented so positively about you, and what a pleasure it is to work for Right Travel.
This was my 16th trip across the Atlantic and we were very interested in going to Egypt  I was skeptical about Right Travel as I had not heard of them (it's a relatively new company) but liked the idea of small group travel, so dec'd to take the chance. My adult son and I just returned from Egypt and I cannot recommend R-T highly enough. There was not one bad note. We were met at each airport and taken to the hotel or boat. And then from the hotel and boat back to the airport. We planned to leave Luxor for Cairo later than the rest of our group and therefore did not expect to be met.  But there the rep was, with a huge smile. He solved a problem for us at the airport and did not leave until we went thru security.  What a huge relief to be met.
I would recommend getting in and out of Cairo as quickly as possible, 25 million people, all who seem to be in cars at all times of day (making 6 lanes from 3), is daunting. I've been in traffic in Istanbul, Morocco, and Sicily but was not prepared for Cairo. However, we were taken to the sites by our very knowlegable guide and great driver, and all that we saw was indeed fabulous.
There's no adjective for the ship experience. The ship and it's staff were wonderful. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. Sitting on the top deck looking at beautiful scenery and watching the life of rural Egypt was the highlight of the trip....incredible and so relaxing.
The guides in Cairo, Luxor, and Aswan were Egyptologists who obviously knew their subject and were excited about sharing it. They were also open to as many questions as we asked. I never saw any impatience from our guides. They seemed to really want us to have a positive experience.
When Right Travel promises small groups in a van, that's what we had. There were 9 of us and we all got along  so well.  My birthday was on ship and the group and staff celebrated it. Such a surprise....and lots of fun. I've been with large groups and the difference was remarkable. I'd watch other groups trudging into sites....long lines of them, and felt quite smug about our nine!
The only advice I can offer about the flight to Egypt is to arrange a layover in western Europe. Cairo to JFK was 12 hours and coming back we were exhausted. We then flew from JFK to Memphis. In all my traveling I've never experienced jetlag until yesterday and we were both totally wiped out. From Cairo to an airport in western Europe (Paris or Amsterdam) for a chance to walk around a bit, then on home, would have been beneficial. However, let me stress that we arranged the flight as we flew from Memphis to Italy before going to Egypt. So this `overload' was not the fault of Right Travel but our responsibility. You know that the best lessons are lraned from mistakes!
I could go on and on about the trip and the people from Right Travel  who made it so wonderful.  I just returned and altho I'm exhausted, I'm still excited. I will most assuredly travel with Right Travel again and could not recommend them highly enough. Oh, one last thing. Each person associated with Right Travel spoke highly of the company. With all the traveling I've done, I've never heard employees speak about the tour company they worked for before. So obviously Right Travel employees experienced people and treats them well.  That certainly must be behind the exceptional service we received.

Thank you for a wonderful trip to Egypt.

Medhat, we had a fantastic vacation! Every connection and arrangement went just as planned. Your representatives in country were courteous, professional, knowledgeable, and most interested in ensuring our enjoyment of the experience. We feel so fortunate to have seen and learned about so many wonderful treasures of the world that Egypt has to offer!



Mar 02-13, 2010 (12 Day Egypt Classical & Sharm El Sheikh Tour)

Thank you so much for everything!  We had a wonderful vacation and we are thrilled that we booked through Right Travel.  Everything was so easy since we were picked up at each location and taken where we want to go.  And even though our tour had a pre-set itinerary, we were always able to go places, see things, and take extra time where we wanted to. Again, thank you again for planning such a great trip!  We had a great time and look forward to visiting Egypt again someday.

Feb 22-Mar 10, 2010 ( 10 Day Egypt in Depth + Jordan 4 nights extension)

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent Egypt/Jordan tour.  All our flights were met by your representatives and drivers.  They handled all details expeditiously. Our guides in Egypt and Jordan were very knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. We were very pleased!  It was especially advantageous to have such a small group, usually only the 4 of us.  All of our tours were smooth and seamless.
Our hotels were clean and comfortable, what I expected on the Silver Plan. It was an unforgettable trip and we would feel confident using your services again.

Feb 22-Mar 10, 2010 (10 Day Egypt in Depth + 2 Day Bahariya & White Desert Safari)

Thank you for planning our outstanding Egypt and Jordan trip including the Bahariya desert experience.  Everything was flawlessly executed --flights, pickups, guides, drivers etc.  I especially appreciate the help of your Cairo representative who arranged a delivery of Antinal after 9 PM the night before our early flight to Luxor.  While all your representatives were commendable and capable, we thought Essam did an outstanding job of coordinating our travel arrangements and always with good humor and gracious friendliness.  Please feel free to use us as references.

Feb 16-Mar 06, 2010 (14 Day Egypt Jordan Jerusalem Panorama)

Mary Anne deputized me to reply to your note.  We had the best vacation of our lives and thank our lucky stars we found your web site and had the courage to use your services. It must be said that it requires true grit and some good luck to actually make things work when traveling in a small group on a self planned itinerery. However, everything you promised did occur, the guides were first rate, people showed up as outlined in the plan, everyone was very pleasant even to the point of empathizing with us being exhausted and getting over terrible colds acquired along the way. The diving at Sharm was beyond my best dreams and I am now certified for deep diving.Unfortunately Mary Anne had a bloody sinusitis and could only dive one day at which point the dive master insisted on calling the local dive physician and refused to allow her back on the dive boat for subsequent dives. She was able to snorkle and had a good time.

You can be sure we will use your services again and will reccomend you to our friends. The taxi driver from Jerusalem was not allowed to come to the border station and we only found out he was outside the gate when Israeli police came up to us and then allowed him to come in to pick us up. Also the border crossing involves a charge for the bus and luggage, not a fee to leave Jordan. The fee can be paid in $US but if you are due change for your dollars it comes in useless Jordanian dinars. Warn people that they will have to pay and it is not a fixed amount but depends on luggage. You might also reassure travelers that Israeli guides love to scare people about the awful time at the Allenby crossing but I suspect the delays are not as common as the stories suggest. Also it appears that the delays are due to stringent Israeli security and this suggests that it doesn't matter where the crossing is. The time for us was about 45min including three trips for my luggage through the x-ray machines and x-raying my long camera lens separately. The hotels were all great-no need for five star at all. We just can't wait for our next trip-we hope with you guys again!

Very best wishes.

Feb 16- Mar 02, 2010 (15 Day Grand Circle Tour)

Thank you very much Medhat for everything you did with helping us plan our trip to Egypt. And please give our thanks to Essam, Mammoud, Asaraf, and everyone else that helped make our Egypt 15 Day Grand Circle Tour a wonderful and memorable experience.

Special thanks to Essam for helping us track down our lost baggage, and for the onderful meal his family provided us in their home. Egypt has always been a place we have dreamed of visiting and you all helped make it happen. I would highly recommend Right Travel to anyone thinking of traveling to Egypt, you simply did everything "right" and we appreciate it.

Feb 10-26, 2010 (Custom Tour Egypt & Jordan)

Dear Medhat, The overall experience was fantastic the coordination was for the most part flawless. Ashraf is truly a gem of a guide and a wonderful giving person a raise should be in his immediate future. Alia was lovely and informative and the women adored her. The sightseeing and cruise and the food were fantastic. My wife and I liked the hotel. Jordan was excellent as well save for the fact that Nadol's Itinerary did not correspond exactly with what you had sent us but we got to see everything we desired as well as asking to stop at the Citadel and the Archeological Musuem which was not included in the initial bus ride city tour. Without hesitation we would be thrilled to recommend Right Tours to other travelers and my wife and I thank you a truly wonderful Egypt and Jordan tour.

Yours truly,

Mel and Roberta Schechter


Jan 14-26, 2010 (13 Day Legend of Egypt Tour)

Both my wife and I want to thank you for all the great work you did to make our Egypt trip one we will never forget. We had a wonderful time and were amazed at how beautiful the country was and kind the people were to us. Of course, I was thrilled to see all the fabulous ruins, temples and artifacts found in this unique country.

We were extremely impressed with the service Right Travel provided. We never had one problem. All the connections were made without a hitch. Our Egyptologists were excellent. Alia helped us explore Cairo and along with the information she gave, she was able to answer all our questions. Asraf was outstanding. He is not only extremely well educated and personable, but he has a passion for his work and a love for his country that energized us all. I enjoyed spending time with him and drilled him with all my questions.  He was as excited as I was to talk about the pharaohs and all the new information that is coming forth with DNA testing. Talking with him was one of the many highlights of our trip.

We found the hotel room, food, ship and everyone involved with our trip to be exceptional and look forward to using Right Travel for our future international trips.  We will also be recommending your services to our friends.

Again, thank you for all your great work to provide us with a trip of a lifetime.

Sorry for the delay in responding. We had a wonderful trip and it lived up to our expectations. We wanted to particularly note that our Director, Essam, was absolutely excellent and tended to all the details of our travels. He was efficient, timely, and very responsive to our needs. Most importantly, he was a delight to meet and was a wonderful representative of Egypt as well as Right Travel. We were very pleased to have met him and we thank him again for his kind attention.

The trip was great. Your company is superior to many we have used. Keeping tour size small was a bonus for us. Ashraf our Egyptologist was amazing. The best we ever had. Very knowledgeable, like being with our own personal professor yet with personality. The Egyptian family was also very nice.

Jan 15-18, 2010 (4 Day Nile Cruise Aswan to Luxor)

Right Travel provided us with excellent service on our trip to Egypt and cruise up the Nile, always providing us information in a timely and thorough manner with highest praise for Medhat prior to our departure. We selected the four day, three night cruise from Aswan to Luxor with a side trip to Abu Simbel. At every step of this complicated trip, we were greeted by Right Travel representatives who were exceptionally helpful in meeting our needs and answering our questions. The boat accommodations were more than adequate, the Stephanie itself was lovely, comfortable and easy to navigate, and the food was better than expected. The highlight of our trip from a Right Travel perspective was our Egyptologist, Alaa, who accompanied us throughout our tour, was highly informative and exceedingly helpful in guiding us through the various temples, markets, etc. Thanks to Right Travel for one of the most outstanding vacations I have had – and I travel a lot.  Egypt is simply spectacular and the tour made it more so.

Jan 13-22, 2010 (10 Day Oberoi Style Tour)

Egypt Air was great. Excellent service on board, friendly flight attendants, abundance of good food, plus the flight attendants brought around water several times during the flight. And I heard from an Egyptian lady that she flies Egypt Air all the time because their pilots are very experienced and safe. When we left Cairo to come home, I noticed that dogs were sniffing the luggage that was being loaded, which also was reassuring.
The Right-Travel guides all were fantastic! 
In Cairo Essam ("Harry") met me at the airport when I arrived, retrieved my missing luggage the next day, and took me to the opera that night. And when I left early the next morning, he had arranged for the Hyatt to have a box breakfast to take along with me. He was so pleasant and helpful, and a lot of fun--I enjoyed being with him.

The opera, Aida, by the way, was wonderful! The stage settings--and there were many--were absolutely breath-taking! I have never seen anything like it. At one point I could have sworn the Nile was flowing over the stage! Plus there were many beautiful replicas of ancient statues and temples that made the setting seem real. My seating was perfect--3rd row, dead center. Since the orchestra seats are elevated, this brought me level with the stage. I really enjoyed the whole evening immensely.

I was with Ahmed in Luxor. A very sweet young man, who took such good care of me. He took me to a lovely lunch at a restaurant on the Nile, with a great view. When I went to the sound and light show, he arranged for an escort to take me through with a flash light, who took me in front of the crowd, and actually held my hand so I didn't stumble in the dark on the uneven pavement. Ahmed was always there on time, and always asked what else he could do for me. I have very fond memories of him.
I was with Hussein for three whole days of sight-seeing in Cairo, and he was so wonderful to me. He has a wealth of knowledge and was able to explain anything and everything so well. I never felt rushed--he let me have as long as I wanted anywhere we went. I felt he was there to share anything he knew with me, or do anything I wanted to do. He took me to a couple of shops that I had asked to go to, but stressed to me that I did not have to buy anything. I especially enjoyed the trip to the Fayoum with him, and the local restaurant he took me to for lunch on Lake Qarun. And it was so special see the pyramids at Dashur and Meidum, without the crowds, and without the vendors. I might add that Hussein is also an accomplished photographer, and always knew where to get the best shot, or where to have me stand to have me in the picture. He knew all about my camera--I didn't have to explain anything to him. I don't think I could have had a better guide, and I was close to tears when I said good-bye to him.
All the drivers were also very good. And very pleasant and helpful. In fact, the driver to the Fayoum played classical music in the van, because he knew I had requested to go to the opera, so thought I would enjoy classical music--which I did. So very thoughtful of him.
The MS Philae was terrific. The guide I had onboard, Salwa Shehata, was a free-lance Egyptologist from Tel El-Amarna--I told her I was going home with her (since that is where Akhenaten built his city when he left Thebes)! She was so enthusiastic and seemed to love explaining in detail what obviously meant so much to her. And always there were refreshments and a refreshing wipe when we came back onboard after a tour in the hot sun. There were 10 of us in her group, all very compatible: 2 from Australia, 2 from New Zealand, 4 from Scotland, and one lady from the U.S.--and me. The whole ship was available to us, and the entire staff was exceptionally congenial, available, and helpful. I visited the captain and his assistant as they piloted the boat, and took a tour with the chef in the kitchen. The chef was always fun--always dancing behind the buffet table! The food was fantastic. Quite frankly, I didn't think I would like Egyptian food, but anywhere I had it, it was great. Especially on the cruise. One night we had a Gallabeya party, which was lots of fun. One night was a black-and-white dinner--very elegant--where even the staff work black and white. One night there was a whirling dervish. And always the lounge was available for tea in the afternoon and dancing at night. My room was perfect--on the port side, as I had requested. With a view of the sunset behind the Theban hills.
The Grand Hyatt and the Mena House were both superb! Especially the Mena House, when they upgraded me to a suite when I didn't have hot water one night! It is really a grand hotel--truly elegant and opulent, with exceptional ambience. Many good restaurants, as well as different kinds of entertainment. Gorgeous grounds. I could have stayed there for a week, and not gone off the premises! And the pyramid view from my room was awesome!
The whole trip was a dream come true for me. To see the ruins and artifacts from such a great, ancient civilization was just incredible. If truth be told, when I went into the first tomb, tears rolled down my cheeks when I saw the love and care the artisans had used in preparing the tomb for their king, whom they considered divine. All so symbolic, in such intricate detail, with every inch of space decorated. But also incredible were the people of Egypt today. Everyone was so friendly, helpful, and pleasant. I don't think I have been to a country where I felt such affection for its people as a whole. I can't thank you enough for helping me plan the trip, and giving me such a magnificent experience. It was all just magical.
And sooner or later you may be getting a call from a lady I met from the U.S. She was so impressed by what Right-Travel did for me and the way I was treated, that she asked me how to contact you. In fact, she reminded me several times not to forget to email her your website. (Which I have done.) And I will recommend Right-Travel to anyone else who asks!
Thank you again, Medhat!
Warm regards,
