Yes – it's totally safe to go to Egypt, at least if you use services of a professional travel organizer, such as Minamar. We had been thinking about a tour in Egypt for some years – we do have such a trip twice a year somewhere around the world – but due to the unstable political situation we had chosen...

We used Minimar travel for overnight stay in White dessert & then for the Nile Cruise. Before coming to Egypt we contacted Mr. Raed who helped us plan our tour.

Great service from a tour operator who was totally unknown to us. We were searching for a conducted tour of the White Desert over the internet and by chance we got to know the name of Minamar.

If you don't want to be herded around in a big group of fellow British tourists and want the chance of seeing Egypt through the eyes of the locals then this is your chance!

Over Sylvester 2012 we, a couple from Germany, spent 5 days (4 nights) on a Dahabiya trip from Luxor to Aswan. The boat started from Esna and stopped few km before Aswan. This was our fourth trip to Egypt. On our former trips on the Nile, on the Lake Nasser and in the Libyan dessert we had only positive experiences....

I would never bother trying anyone else if/when I go to Egypt again. We booked a twelve night trip and from the start we had instant email replies from Raed. After agreeing the schedule and excursions for the holiday, he still worked behind the scenes to upgrade us. We were met by Ahmed Mahmoud, our guide, at the airport and...

“Hotels excellent as was the Nile Cruise. The overnight train from Cairo to Aswan was more basic so be prepared with anti bacs and your own food and drink. That said the hospitality of the man on the train was excellent and full of good humour and it was part of the whole experience To do it seeing so much in the morning travelling south by the Nile to Aswan”

“As it was free and easy tour, we made our own hotel reservations in Cairo instead. Stayed 5 nights at the Intercontinental Citystars and would recommend this hotel though room rates were rather high. Very nice hotel and good breakfast spread.”
