Coming home to Egypt was a childhood dream fulfilled. Leisa and Haytham (Sam) have ensured our Egypt experience was of the highest quality which I deeply appreciated. The connections, love, joy and laughter that I have shared and the memories that we have of Egypt will last a lifetime.

Travelling with Pink Lotus Egypt Tours has been an educational experience through the accurate imparting of knowledge by our well educated Egyptologists/Tour Guides. I feel we were very fortunate to have them.

I felt a high level of consideration, respect and protection throughout our most pleasurable journey through Egypt. My fellow travellers are like family now.

A love affair has begun with Egypt that will last a lifetime. It was the most enjoyable experience of my life.

From the booking process to accommodation, transport, meals and experiences, everything was of the highest standard and exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Pink Lotus Egypt Tours.

Thank you to Leisa and Sam from Pink Lotus Egypt Tours. At last I visited Egypt a place close to my heart for many years.

I had a wonderful and enlightening experiences visiting the Pyramids, Tombs and Temples to see the splendour of how the Egyptians lived and died.

We were given in depth information of dates, times and names by our wonderful guides. Nothing was too much trouble for them, we were extremely well looked after the whole time. As we kept within our happy group, I felt very safe.

One of my highlights was the cruise on the River Nile where we dressed up and walked like Egyptians. Another very special experience was that often we had primary access to sites where nobody else was there, only our group.

It was magical and I felt very privileged. It gave us the chance to be quiet and ponder with amazement at the energy of the places. As an artist I was inspired everyday at the spectacular sites we visited.

I recommend you discover the mystery of Egypt with Pink Lotus Egypt Tours where you will have the time of your life - a memory forever.

Egypt for me was the trip of a lifetime. Amazing. Spectacular.

Truly what you expect and want to experience, the MAGIC of Egypt – loved the whole journey – the people, the places, the food, the accommodation, the knowledge and the whole experience, which is Egypt.

The Pyramids . . . spectacular . . . I amazed myself by being able to go high up into the Great Pyramid easily. The energy was amazing.

The Temples were wonderful. What surprised me was the colours in the pictures on the walls were still so bright. I never expected that. I thought they would have faded long ago.

I felt like I belonged in one of the Temples, some even looked modern with the steps leading to the Temple as though time had stood still. But knowing they are thousands of years old was thrilling.

Another favourite was the hotels, the River Nile and cruising and staying on the Nile was beautiful, the water looked so clear.

We were lucky enough to have rooms with a balcony where we could sit and enjoy the Nile flowing by.

In the restaurant on the cruise the food was fabulous, all the shows were stunning and the Whirling Dervishes were mesmerising, something that has to be seen to be believed.

I felt so safe while I enjoyed the spectacular that is Egypt.

I would definitely go again, but spend even longer next time. The people are lovely and respectful. They love their country and the tourists! All the Hotel and Cruise staff were the best you are likely to find.

A great trip, a trip of a lifetime. It was hard to leave and come back home!

Thank you to Leisa and Sam and all the lovely people who were in the group who made it so memorable.

We wish to thank you for organising our amazing tour of ancient Egypt. We’ve had this trip on our bucket list for many years. The itinerary was very well arranged to include all the important sites plus some of the more unusual sites off the beaten track.

A nice balance of Cairo, the Pyramids, the Sphinx, Valley of the Kings and a fantastic selection of temples. We also enjoyed the break from the ancient sites to see modern Egypt, such as the Cairo Museum, Papyrus Museum and a very special perfumery.

Special thanks to our tour guide Sam. An Egyptologist with a profound knowledge of Ancient Egypt. He went the extra mile to make sure that we had an enjoyable experience. What a lovely sense of humour.

The accommodation was five star with an interesting variety of cuisine. A special mention must be made of the historic hotel Mena House, truly an oasis in the desert. Wherever we travelled the hospitality staff were very welcoming, polite and helpful.

Aside from the ancient sites, the highlights of our trip were a very relaxing cruise down the Nile and the dawn balloon ride over the West Bank which took us right over Hatshepsut’s Temple.

We would recommend Pink Lotus to anyone who has a keen interest in seeing ancient Egypt.

"Thank you to Pink Lotus Egypt Tours. Egypt is a land of many colours, smells, mystery and voice speaking many tongue. One day you are a stranger, now you are my friend. Going to Isis Temple was a lifelong dream, I cannot tell you how I felt, it was like my whole body and soul came alive. Learning about the Pharaohs and Goddesses, travelling up the Nile River I wish I had the gift for you to see and feel Egypt's magic. Again I thank Pink Lotus Egypt Tours, I thoroughly enjoyed my trip and I hope others will as well when they travel with Leisa and Sam our guide who was wonderful."
