Chinmoy's 7 days trip to CairoWe knew nothing about Travel Triangle and Flying fleet while requesting for quote. However Yatharth from Travel Triangle really guided me well and Karam from Flying fleet was a great support. I completely depended on Karam to make my trip a memorable one. They are almost always available on phone or on whatsapp to support any query. Everything was clearly planned well before. Getting Visa was smooth affair. Flying fleet team provided excellent support. Mr Ali, our contact point in Egypt, contacted me well before we started from India. After arrival it was a complete guided tour. Mr Ali met us in the Hotel and we discussed our overall plan. Our driver Mr Mohammad @Cairo was a great support. Mr Khalifa our guide in Cairo was a very good, jovial guide. They really took care of us and guided us on what we should do. We had a great lunch in Cairo. We also took horse cart ride around Pyramid as advised by our guide & it was a good decision We flew to Aswan and visited Aswan dam and a re-constructed temple near by. That was a great experience. Point to be noted. @Cairo, guide may take you to a govt outlet selling Papyrus art. They will show you how papers are made from papyrus plant, they will show you paintings having picture in picture when lights are switched off. That was great experience. However items were very costly, quoted in USD. Later we found same item 10 times cheaper in the only souvenir shop inside Luxor Airport. We refused to visit Cotton museum after visiting Papyrus outlet. We were also taken in an Essence factory in Aswan. That was also great experience and we purchased some item, knowing it was costlier than it should be. Later we refused to visit any such art / handicraft shops. Nile cruise was good experience not a great experience. There were no Tea kettle in the room and all drinks, including are to be purchased. It did not give a 5 start experience as was mentioned. We took the hot air balloon ride at the insistence of Ali. And we really thank him for the same. That was a great experience. We skipped the temples in between Aswan and Luxor. We also skipped Abu Simbel @Aswan. We visited Karnak temple in Luxor and visited 3 nearby tombs in Kings Valley. Those were real good experiences. My over all rating could have been 10/10 but for 1 issue of air tickets between Cairo and Aswan and back to Cairo. In Cairo our flight ticket mentioned ‘Air Cairo’. However at Airport there were no such Air Cairo flight counter. Signage inside that Domestic Terminal is awful and people will approach you to support only for money. Finally Air Cairo told, we are booked in Nile Air. It was a tense situation in early hours. Also return ticket given to us was from Aswan to Cairo whereas we had to board flight at Luxor. Anyways both Karam and Ali resolved the issue, night before our travel. I will strongly recommend Flying fleet and Travel Triangle and also vouch for Mr Ali’s support in Egypt. Travelers please remember 1) to carry sufficient amount of Egyptian pounds when you arrive. 2) Convert to EGP only after arriving at Cairo for best rate. 3) store number of guides in all places. You have to pay $60 per person as deposit when you arrive. That will be returned to you when you depart. EGP eqv of $5 per person per day will be taken from you for tips to Hotel / Cruise staff and drivers. Even then please carry sufficient amount of 10/ 20/50/100 pound notes with you for tips. Carry some 1 pound coins when you visit public toilets. Be ready to tip any one carrying your luggage 5/10 pound. Drivers 20/ trip/day, Guides (50/100) per day. Cruise staff will also expect tips so keep 10/20 pounds ready for whoever interacts a lot with you in Cruise. Keep those changes and be ready to pay tips, you will have a memorable experience in Egypt.
Suresh's 8 days trip to CairoIt was an excellent trip, very well arranged. Though the group had a small visa issue due to late delayed renewal of passport, we could still make it and got the visa on arrival without any hassles. Hotels, vehicles, cruise were well arranged. The best part of the trip was the excellent guides, who could explain the little things.
Nnn's 8 days trip to CairoGreat experience..we were taken care quite well from airport to all visits and back .very responsive to all needs and queries. Will strongly recommend to use their service.i would too
Pavithra's 9 days trip to CairoHotels in Cairo we're situated very far away. We had to travel 1hr to get into the city for sightseeing. Few of the guides were rude and were in a hurry. The hotel in Hurghada was good. Guide in Alexandria was amazing and accommodating.
Deepanshu's 6 days trip to CairoAlright! So, finally got to write about the trip. Don’t know how to describe, but the trip was simply awesome. Starting from day 1, started getting some surprises – someone available inside Cairo airport to help with immigration, luggage, currency and finally dropped till cab. This was unexpected. SIM was arranged and handed over to us on day 1 as well with 4GB data – went till second last day of our 7 days trip and then did the recharge. The hotel in Cairo/Giza – actually in Giza, which is the oldest town in Egypt, and it does feel like it, literally, could be improved. Rooms in a 4-star property are expected to be maintained. Had to ask for a room change on first day. The cab driver in Cairo, the tour guides for Alexandria and Cairo, were awesome. Yes, an English-speaking driver would have been appreciated, but since English is not widely spoken in Egypt, we had to manage with Google Translator anyway. The driver otherwise was very nice and interesting person. We were playing Bollywood songs in the last days of the trip – got to know his love for Amitabh Bachchan and he could literally identify the movie name by just listening to old songs of Amitabh sir. Something which could’ve been better as well – on the cruise, the driver was there to make arrangements but wasn’t given a place to be seated. This felt bad on humanitarian ground since we could see him standing outside the hall all the time. Another glitch was one of our domestic flights time mismatch – Cairo to Hurghada as per my records was 9AM, but actually was 11.45AM. This didn’t create much of a problem, but we had to rush after reaching Hurghada coz of our pre-booked afternoon activity. The property in Hurghada was just awesome. Realizing what all one could do just inside the property, I felt to have spent more time in Hurghada. Truly a 5 star experience. The very last day also, had to ask for room change as hotel (Pyramid Park, Giza) tried to give us a twin room. Finally, trip ended very well. Much better than I expected due to the services I received from various people and everything being planned much earlier. A big thanks to Yatharth and Mr Karam for making it a memorable trip for us. Local folks – Mr Ali (local contact), Hanny (cab driver in Cairo), other guides – thank you all. Cruise Dinner with a surprise gift on our anniversary was a lifetime experience.
Arpita's 9 days trip to CairoOn 2nd and 3rd Week of Oct we went to Jordon and Egypt. All bookings wee arranged by "Holiday Aces"- was an exceptionally great. We were received at the airport even before we could collect our baggage. The local company representatives there ( TRAVCO), guides, drivers were extremely efficient and extremely forthcoming during our entire stay. Would highly recommend your services. Everything was great Everybody was extremely efficient and professional. Kudos to Holiday Aces and Travel Triangle for making our Holidays memorable.
Satyajit's 10 days trip to CairoExcept for the resort in Egypt, where check in process was super slow, with no help from the hotel staff, the entire tour was awesome. It was well planned and well arranged. Travel triangle did a good job.
Pradeep's 10 days trip to CairoEgypt. Tour agents and services were excellent and very cooperative . Cruise was excellent but service provision inside the Train was of BAD quality. Hotel room provision at Pyramis park was satisfactory and need improvement in quality of cleanliness.. Room lights and telephones were defective and not properly maintained . Dubai hotel arrangement and tour was excelantent however services of tour guide was unsatisfactory and need improvement. All flight booking except Indigo flight for Dubai mum was not good . The hot and humid weather condition restricted enjoying the tour at Egypt.
