Favorite thing: We booked our tour with EOL and it was a wonderful experience. It was a private tour which was great because your one on one with your tour guide and you don't have to jostle for position in a crowded tour. The price was very reasonable it cost us 1060USD per person for the two weeks. That includes hotels, guides, a private car, some meals, all entrance fees, the light show at the Great Pyramids, our cruise from Luxor to Aswan, Abu Simbel, a horse and carriage drive in Edfu City, the motorboat and felucca rides in Aswan and camping in the White Desert. The guides were so knowledgeable and our driver, Mahmoud, was great. He would not let us go and buy anything ourselves instead he would go and buy whatever we wanted paying only the Egyptian price. I went through www.touregypt.net which is the homepage for the AETBI an acroynm for the tourist board of Egypt. You tell them what you want to see and they send that to many travel agents which in turn send you the itinery and prices. You can also book through www.eoltours.com which is the homepage for the tour company.

Fondest memory: Our guides Morsay in Cairo and Ahmed from Luxor to Aswan were very good and very knowledgeable.
