  • Hello GAT Tours

    It is with great pleasure that I send this thank you to GAT Tours for arranging such a wonderful trip to Egypt for my mother and I.
    I began enquiring to GAT Tours about our trip to Egypt. Mr. Ahmed Omar was the tour operator who began to answer my enquiries. From the very beginning Mr. Omar was very professional, helpful, full of information, and was able to communicate clearly and quickly with me. He always responded very quickly with accurate information, which is very helpful when planning a trip from overseas. I appreciated his wonderful and helpful service as I planned the trip.
    Mr. Omar continued to provide this excellent service right through the planning stages until the end of our trip. He communicated to me every step of the way about what to expect, who would be meeting us, arrival and departure times, etc. This was wonderful service and made us feel like we were being cared for by GAT Tours every step of the way.
    Upon arrival I was happy to receive a phone call from GAT Tours welcoming my mother and I to Egypt. This was such a nice service and we appreciated the kindness and caring of our tour company.
    Every arrangement that was made with GAT Tours was excellent. Every arrangement went smoothly with no problems. All the arrangements made by Mr. Omar were excellent: Abydos/Denderah, Hot Air Balloon, Nile Cruise, Hotels in Luxor, Aswan, and Giza, Philae Sound and Light, sleeper train and day train, Saqqara/Memphis/Coptic Cairo, and transfers. I would like to make special mention of the two Tour Guides, one in Luxor that took us on the Abydos/Denderah tour - Mr. Mahmoud, and one in Saqqara/Memphis - Mr. Hammdi. These Tour Guides were excellent, knowledgeable, professional, and provided us with the best tours in all of Egypt. I highly recommend their services to all of your GAT Tours clients.
    The biggest thank you and appreciation must go to Mr. Ahmed Omar for responding to our emergency call on March 20th. I had made arrangements on my own for a hotel in Cairo, and this hotel was NOT acceptable. When my mother and I made an emergency call to Mr. Omar he responded very quickly and found us a wonderful replacement hotel. He arranged for our room at the Semiramis which we were so thankful for. Also, I would like to thank Mr. Sherif Abd EL Wahab for his quick and professional and kind service in helping my mother and I register at the Semiramis Hotel. Mr. Wahab also played an important part in helping us solve our hotel problem, and it was appreciated very much by my mother and I.
    In closing, I would like to say that GAT Tours provided us with above excellent service and I recommend GAT Tours to anyone travelling to Egypt. GAT Tours was professional, effective and efficient, provides excellent tours and arrangements and most of all gave us such kind and wonderful service. GAT Tours made our trip to Egypt the most wonderful trip and experience.
    Thank you GAT Tours,

  • Hi Ahmed Omar,

    Just a quick note to say thank you so much for organizing such a wonderful adventure for us
    From the moment we touched down at Cairo, to when you took us back through customs on our return flight, we were in great hands at every location
    Our journey was fascinating: Day 1 - Arrive Cairo 01:00
    Pyramids at Giza am - journey to the inner chamber, followed by being let loose on a couple of healthy looking horses to gallop across the desert. As competitive horse riders, this was an unexpected treat, as being entrusted with fast horses is not always allowed Egyptian Museum pm - so much to see, we only touched the surface here, but enough for us on Day 1! Sleeper train - very appreciative of GAT Tours booking us on the train with sleeping compartments. The Bar carriage was a step back to the 70's - definitely worth visiting (even for just five minutes) Day 2 - 5 - JUST AMAZING
    Temples / Tombs - truly unbelievable sights, history that is hard to process - arriving at each location and the first glimpse of each enormous creation felt like we were in our own little adventure. We truly felt enormously lucky to have the chance to see first hand such an amazing pieces of history We added a ride on donkeys to see the 'Valley of the Kings' and 'Temple of Hatshepsut' from the mountain top - this was unforgettable, and the best place to get true perspective on the area Mojito Nile Cruise Ship - very happy and friendly staff. Sitting on deck in the late afternoon, watching Egypt pass by as the sun set - priceless
    Days 6 - 16 - El Gouna
    Sheraton Miramar - great service, dining, and hotel complex My highlights: - well equipped gym - 2k running track - varied and extensive buffet meals - comfortable beds - Tuk Tuk service around El Gouna
    Many thanks to all the GAT Tours staff that made our trip, one to remember. Special thanks to Ahmed Omar, Amira and Emad - guys we thoroughly enjoyed your company and will certainly recommend your services to all our friends interested in visiting your incredible country.
    Hope to see you again on future trips.

    How are you? we all hope you and your great team are Ok. We arrived back from Egypt and Europe extremely tired but well in general, I immediately started working on the same day we arrived (What can I do, somebody has to cover the expenses, don´t you think so ?), anyway, things are going well. We were very pleased on theservices you and your team provided to us, honestly,
    it was beyond the expectations and we spent a great and memorable time during our stay in Egypt. Graciela is your very first promoter in Mexico, she is telling her friends and relatives about how well we were treated by your Company.

  • Dear Omar, Raed, and Ahmed

    The hecticness of returning from vacation and getting back to work and school have finally settled down, leaving me a moment to send this note to say thank you for your hospitality, kindness, and extreme professionalism. Everyone at US Airways now knows about your company, not to mention the local staffs of United Airlines and Lufthansa. I am in the process of working with someone in our headquarters to see if they want to work out some type of special arrangement with your companies. I am also working on an article to send to various local newspapers describing not only why it is important to visit Egypt, but especially so if you have children. The article also describes the best way to see Egypt which is through your companies. Seriously, and as I have told you in Egypt, this trip changed my opinion on my issues for the better. The people of Egypt are wonderful and the country spectacular.
    Omar, I promise, I will do my best to get people to use your company and GATours.
    So, on behalf of my wife Barbara and my two sons, Anthony, and Stephen, I want to thank you for wonderful trip. Truly magnificent, in large part to each of you.
    Please let me know if I can be of any assistance to you.

  • Dear Marian

    I am writing to thank you for the superb organization and direction of our recent holiday in Egypt.
    Your guides, representatives and other staff were superb and all assisted in providing us with a memorable holiday for a reasonable cost.
    In particular I would like to praise the tour guides.
    For our Cairo tour Manar was an outstanding, highly qualified professional. She was charming, very intelligent and possessed an extensive knowledge of both ancient and modern Egypt. I would like you to commend and thank her for the excellent manner in which she conducted our tour. Her communication skill was exceptionally good and her command of the English language faultless.
    In Aswan, Nile cruise and Luxor your guide Markos was equally professional and again outstanding. Although young he was clearly well qualified, very knowledgeable and exuded charm with a friendly easy manner. His knowledge of Egyptology, Egyptian culture and history was extensive and clearly communicated. He had lots of background knowledge and offered information on the most recent Egyptology research. Again could you express my gratitude to him for an excellent performance and for being an outstanding tour guide.
    Our experience with GAT Tours was such that we will always come back to you for future holidays and we will recommend you to friends and colleagues.
    Many thanks once again.

    Thanks again for your great hospitality! Your whole team is wonderful and I had a terrific vacation. I would be pleased to give you positive references. I will send you a proper e-mail when I get back to my home in a couple of days. Right now I am in the Dubai airport just checking on my e-mails. You can also use me as a reference if you'd like. Like I said, you guys were terrific!
    I hope you are having a good week. It was really nice to meet you and I am sure we will run into each other again. This really is a small world! Take care of yourself and all the best to you and your family.
