Transit Tour to Cairo

A friend and I had a long transit in Cairo and wanted to see Giza, the pyramids, a souk, and the Egyptian museum. 


First of all, if you ever wanted to see Cairo or Egypt – do it now, before crowds return. It was amazing. There were hardly any tourists at any of the historical sites!

Second, if you are going to do a transit tour there is no better day then Friday. Cairo is a huge city, and there are massive highways. I could tell that on most days of the week they were gridlocked. However, on Friday mornings they are clear. It was breeze to get from site to site and we didn’t hit any traffic! 

Third, the guides from this company knew where to take you to get the best pictures. If you ever wanted to take a selfie of yourself locking lips with the Great Sphinx, these guys will get you there. 

All-in-all, it was a great way to spend an afternoon. If I had to do again I would decrease the amount of time in the museum and spend more time in the souk (market place). That is not to say that the Museum wasn't good, but I love shopping and the souk had some very interesting pieces I would have liked to get for myself. The prices in the souk were much better than those of the papyrus/alabaster dealerships
The remarkable history and beauty of Egypt

We recently traveled to Egypt to experience it's history and beauty. We had heard that Egypt was a little sketchy, so we did quite a bit of research and decided to hire Shaspo Tours for a private tour. First off...... Egypt is VERY SAFE right now. We were met personally by Mr. Shirif, who in collaberation with us, designed our tour of Egypt. From the Museum in Cairo, the great Pyramid of Khufu, the Sphinx, the temples at Abu Simbal, a Nile cruise, the Valley of the Kings and numerous temples along the Nile to Luxor. All of our guides were prompt, courteous and professional. We felt VERY VERY SAFE and Shaspo Tours and Mr. Sherif, made sure our accomodations were perfect. Save yourself allot of time and just book the tour with Shaspo Tours. We couldn't be happier!

We love to travel!! We usually plan all of our trips on our own because it has the most flexibility and is an exciting research challenge, however, in Egypt we felt a "tour" would be a better option. Through Trip Advisor I found Shaspo Tours and I am so glad I did! From the beginning of the planning process to the very last day of our trip they were completely professional and responsive. Mr. Sherif planned a fantastic and affordable private tour for the two of us that left no stone unturned. He was very attentive to our needs and made sure that our accommodations were to our liking. If I were to return to Egypt I would not hesitate to book with Shaspo Tours. Incidentally, we did not feel "unsafe" in Egypt at all so go, go, go!!!!

Cruise along the Nile

In March 2015 my husband and I and another couple went for a 14 day holiday in Egypt which we thoughly enjoyed. One of the highlights would have to be the Dahabiya Cruise along the Nile, which lasted 5 days and 4 nights. A Dahabiya is inbetween the size of a tradiional felucca and a cruise boat. It had 5 double cabins with ensuites, kitchen, bar, lounge and deck area was quite large and this is where we would dine each day. The boat's name was Princess Donia and we booked the cruise with Sherif from Shaspo Tours before we left Australia. The cruise also included a tour of the temples and sites from Luxor to Aswan. Our tour guide was on the boat with us for the entire journey. Our tour guide was Emad, who was very knowledgable about Egpyt and spoke very good english. The food on the boat was sensational! To be honest my expectations were not high for the food as I thought, how good could the food be prepared in a boat kitchen?, but I blown away by not just the quality tasting food but also the amount of food! The staff were also outstanding and accommodating. They were all very friendly and polite and made the experience even more enjoyable. One night we were even permitted to enter the boat kitchen and help the chef prepare dinner for the night. This was a wonderful experience. I must say this cruise along the Nile was absolutely one of the highlights of our trip and if I was to return to Egypt I would do it again. It was quite pricey for the cruise which included the tour guide and site seeing for 4 nights, 5 nights but I believe it was worth every cent! I would recommend this tour and cruise and to anyone; old, young, single, married or a family with children!

 
Dahabiya Nile Cruise

Tour name

Recently my husband and I along with a couple of friends went on a 4 night cruise down the river Nile. We booked through Shaspo tours and with the help of Sherif we booked a Dahabiya rather than a larger cruise boat as we wanted a more "traditional" experience.

 

Sherif was very helpful in our initial stages corresponding via email, very quick with responses and helping with alternative arrangements. Sherif was even good enough to meet us upon our arrival in Cairo to finalise our trip.
Our tour began when we were picked up from our hotel in Luxor for a day of site seeing by our guide Emad. This day was a little rushed and although I would have liked more time at the Valley of the Kings we did still see everything on the itinerary before making our way to Esna to then board our boat.
 
Initially we thought we were booked on the MS Amoura but found we were actually on the Princess Donia.
In the following days we visited Edfu, Kom Ombo and Aswan. Emad ensured we saw all of the main attractions and provided excellent information as we went. His knowledge on the history was fantastic and he was able to answer all of our questions.
 
Emad was at all times lovely and helpful, even to the point of making sure us girls had coins with us so we could use the bathrooms!
 
As for the cruise itself, I cannot speak highly enough of the crew on our boat. Captain Hassan and his crew were always courteous, helpful, polite and good fun. The boat was clean and well kept, the rooms spacious enough and were always made up when we returned from our day tours. We were always welcomed back on board with a cold refreshing drink and towel. And the food! The food was amazing! We were served breakfast, lunch and dinner along with snacks inbetween. The meals were excellent and we even had the opportunity to join the chef behind the scenes and help prepare an evenings dinner.
 
On a couple of shore excursions Captain Hassan himself joined us as "added security" or even just to carry water for us. We felt safe and comfortable at all times with both Emad and Captain Hassan by our sides. 
Both Emad and Captain Hassan along with his crew went out of their way to ensure we had a fantastic experience. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was done with a smile (even doing our washing!).
We'd like to thank Sherif, our guide Emad, Captain Hassan and the crew of the Princess Donia Dahabiya. We've had a fantastic experience.
 
We would also highly recommend this tour and type of cruising option to anyone thinking of going to Egypt. It was such a pleasant mode of travel, sailing down the Nile on such a beautiful old boat.
 
Our Egypt holiday was definitely one to remember, and I'd say if you are thinking of going there... DO IT!

 I was on vacation in Egypt covering Cairo, Luxor and Sharm and the trip was for 8 days.

The very first day, I landed in Cairo, we were welcomed at Cairo airport by Shaspo representative.The accommodation was arranged in Moven Pick hotel with Pyramid view.To my surprise, we got accommodation in room where no signs of Pyramid and few minutes after, smoke started coming out from the room.We were immediately moved to different room where the view to pyramid is fully blocked by palm tree.Finally after informing Shaspo, we were finally given the room which we have agreed upon.The very first day was filled with mental humiliation which we didn’t expect and was not happy.Appreciate the prompt response and presence from Shaspo tours to resolve the issue.The site seeing was great and we explored / experienced the great pyramids and history.The guide were really good,friendly and helpful.

The Luxor stay in Sonesta St. George was really great and had a good family time.The site seeing was memorable and we explored the valley of Kings/Queens and lot more covering history.The guide were really good,friendly and helpful.

Second issue that we faced was, the flight timing for the whole journey was shared with Shaspo tours but unfortunately on the very last day in Luxor, we got informed that Sharm hotel stay check in timing is 12.00hrs and as our flight was reaching at 7.30am, we have to wait until 12pm to check in ,which we are not aware of.But as we were travelling with 22month old kid , we got concession to check in as soon as we reach at Namabay.Thanks to Namabay reception guy.

Request for Shaspo tour, is to have good coordination with hotel stay and ensure the rooms are, as per agreement, inorder to make Egypt tour, a memorable one.

Apart from this unexpected troubles, we enjoyed a lot with site-seeing throughout the journey,the guide were really good,friendly and helpful.They have given good information about history.The highlight is, we had a safe site-seeing and journey throughout the tour.Thanks to Shaspo tour.

My son and I recently traveled to Egypt and Jordan for a very short trip. We arrived in Cairo very late on December 13 and left early on December 15. I contacted Shaspo Tours and we arranged our airport transfers, tours of the Giza plateau, a short tour of the Bizarre and a dinner cruise on the Nile. All of my emails we answered promptly and professionally. The service provided was impeccable, I have no complaints with anything.
I would highly recommend this company to anyone visiting Cairo.

"Trustworthy and Excellent"

My 14yr old son and I traveled to Egypt for a month this past June/July 2014. Prior to the trip I contacted Shaspo Tour Company and began planning our trip. They responded to my emails immediatly and were very professional in how they communicated with me. We spent 4 months planning our trip with them and at any moment I was not happy with the itinarary I created or price they would respond immediatly and would be willing to readjust plans that fit into my budget. 

I was nervous about putting a down payment on the trip so they allowed me to pay for the trip in Egypt the night we arrived. 
 
At the Cairo International airport I was met with their representive holding a sign with our names on it. We arrived at midnight so we went directly to the hotel. There I met Mr. Sherif the Tourism Manager. He explained the vochers and the tour package to me and that is where I payed for the package with my Credit Card. He gave me his phone number incase we were not happy or needed help along the way.
 
The next morning we went to the Cairo Musem with Mohamed who did an amazing job explaining what we were seeing in English. We stayed at The Kempenski Hotel that was beautiful! Mr. Sherif called me that night to make sure the tour was excellent and that the hotel was to our standard.
 
The next day we went to the Giza Pyramids and Saqqara Pyramids with Shaspo Tours and Mohamed. The driver was very safe and during the tour we felt very well taken care of. It was an excellent day with this tour company.
 
We did several private transfers with Shaspo Tours. We had four flights within Egypt on Air Egypt and always had Shaspo Tours take us to the airport or take us to the hotels. Each time they were on time and very reliable! 
We traveled to Cairo, Aswan, Luxor and Marsa Alam with Shaspo Tours. We also did the Nile River Cruise with them. Every accomadation we booked was incredible! All our tours and the English speaking guides were excellent! 
 
Mr. Sherif was in contact with me throughout the whole journey making sure we were safe and that all the representitives were doing their job of serving us. Shaspo Tours made it there one and only mission to serve us in everyway. When I need help, I would call Mr. Sherif and he would be in contact with the representive for that area to help me immediatly!
 
I highly recommend Shaspo Tours. They were trustworthy, affordable, and their services were excellent.

Salaam Sherif and Co, 

Sorry I was in Dubai and was extremely busy, and today I am heading back to Toronto. 

A Big THANK YOU for providing such a super service 

I will start with when I made a plan to visit Egypt only a month before departure. I looked up few other guys, including some established tours and local at very low level tour guides. The communication was not that professional, and sometimes I had to ask if they can accommodate my request. I was traveling alone and for 2 and a half day, so I wanted to utilize my time to the Supreme extent. Finally, I came across Shaspo Tours. Sheriff not only matches the program with the other provider but also the price was within my budget. After completing the tour, I am satisfied that the program was very well designed and use of maximum of time. Due to a professional and swift communication response, I selected Shaspo, and they didn't let me down.

On the first, the representative was already at the reception to pick me up and took me to the van. We went to 5 start hotel where I personally get to see Sherif. He was there to welcome me and helped me to check in the hotel. I arrived 6 AM in the morning, so he arranged an early check in for me with no extra cost.

As it was mentioned in the program, and timing was spot on. I was ready at 9 AM to go for a day tour and Sherif introduced me the tourist guide. This guy is very experienced and knowledgeable who religiously sincere with his work. Apart from his tour guideline and explanation of the historical places and he also directed me throughout the day what to do and what not to do to stay away from anyone during the tour. We stayed together for two days and visited important places in Cairo and Alexanderia, Everything was excellent. The guide .0cruise with buffet dinner, belly and Romi dance show and lunch during tour days. The van driver Yasir was very good as well who drove really well and kept the van clean too. 

The other thing I like to mention that Shaspo Tours gave me a receipt for the service, and on first day when I checked in. I was a bit hesitant to keep my money in the hotel and/or keeping it with during the tour. The safety deposit box was not working, but Sherif got personally involved and got me the working safety deposit box from the hotel. 
All in all, the tour was super amazing, and I am extremely satisfied with the provided by Shaspo Tours. I felt very safe as someone is always with during the tour time. 
Again, thank you so much for everything.  

Say salaam to all guys

Regards

Hi there


Like you I struggled to find any on line reviews of the services of Shaspo Tours
I have never posted any feedback on anything before but I made use of them on a recent trip to Aqaba
the guides provided by Shaspo were prompt, courteous, knowledgeable and utterly utterly brilliant
we had a 12 hour day visiting Petra and Wadi Rum which I will be talking about for years to come
many thanks to Mohammed the guide in Jordan (brilliant man) and to Sherif at Shaspo for putting the day together with around 72 hours' notice.
 
My experience was wonderful and I would heartily recommend Shaspo from my experience.

During a recent trip, my wife and I found ourselves with a 21 hour layover in Cairo.  Our flight arrived at 2 am and departed at 11 pm the same day. We knew that we wanted to see they pyramids, the old city and the alabaster mosque.  Therefore, we contacted multiple companies for creating the best trip for us.  We asked to include a hotel for resting (preferably with a late checkout) and airport transfers.  Emails from Shaspo Tours Egypt (STE) were immediate, professional, direct and responsive to my requests.  Prices were discussed during initial contact.  During each iteration of customization of the tour, the change in price (higher or lower) was discussed.  I felt that the communication was very transparent and this gave me a high level of trust, thanks to the wonderful work of Salma.  Other contacted tour operators were reluctant to discuss price, or communication was very short and seemed rather disinterested in my request.

 
Upon arrival at the airport in Cairo, a driver was waiting with my name.  He immediately directed us to an air-conditioned van, where we departed to wonderful hotel in Giza.  Although it was nearly 3 am, when we arrived at the hotel the tour manager was waiting to welcome us and to settle all remaining details.  He went over the details of the schedule, said to be ready at 8:30 am and bid us farewell.
The next morning, the tour manager (as well as our driver and tour guide) were waiting for us at approximately 8:15 am.  I appreciated the punctuality.  Additionally, the hotel provided free breakfast and the STE team wanted to ensure that we had sufficient time to eat before starting the day.
 
Our specific tour included a trip to the pyramids of Giza, a wonderful private and authentic lunch on the Nile, a tour of the Alabaster Mosque, a driving tour of the major points of Cairo, and a walking tour in the old City (including the Church of Abu Serga and the Crypt where Jesus slept.)  The tour was concluded with a quick shopping excursion to the old market with enough time to have a tea and enjoy some shisha.  (Specific attraction reviews not included here.)  Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and spoke perfect English.  He explained many aspects of the highly diverse cultural, religious and ethnic history of Cairo and Egypt.  His personality was wonderful for a tour guide, taking us on a roller coaster of emotion from absolute amazement to childhood laughter and playfulness and then to the humbleness of man in front of God.
 
We then transited back to the hotel, where we were able to rest for approximately 1 hour (and take a refreshing shower) before checking out at 6 pm.  The tour manager was waiting for us, bid us farewell and thanked us for our business.  We checked out of the hotel at that time and transited back to the airport.  Our driver was very professional and calm in the crazy traffic of Cairo.  I did not feel unsafe at any time and his driving style made me quite calm.  A young man greeted us at the airport (with the driver) and also went back with us again to ensure that everything was okay during the transfer.  He was a very professional, friendly and happy young man and we appreciated his company.
 
This entire trip gave me a wonder taste of Cairo.  The STE team ensured that this experience was a once-in-a-lifetime endeavor.  The cost was very reasonable, as I am quite the budget traveler.  When compared to self-arranged airport transfers (or taxi), add taxi fare to the pyramids and then add one night at an equivalent hotel, this tour was almost free.  There was no nonsense, no pushy sales tactics to purchase from specific vendors, no unscheduled stops and no problems.  I highly recommend Shaspo Tours Egypt and look forward to utilizing their services again in the future.

Dear Sherif,


First of all my hearty thanks to Shaspo.
I have conatcted Shaspo over internet.In my first impression I have gained more flexibility and more trust which was given by Mr Sherif(Tourism Manager of Shaspo). Then he was listening to me completely and understood our requirements. In very next day i have received detailed tour plan. He gave me great flxible plans where i got  luxory to choose my options. Then later I have realized that the price details was uncomparable with other offers available in the internet. Even if you ask some hotels on your choice, then Shaspos will offer better price for the same which was amazing as when you book from your country you have to trust only what the internet price & decsription says about the hotel etc. As Shaspo is based in Egypt, they know in and out about the all hotels and how far they could offer best out of internet price as well. Even I have requested him to have a baby cot additionally and Shaspo arranged it for free of cost.
In my opinion Shaspos will hear all sort of request from his client like me and then they will arrange their best for their clients. i never seen such a tour operator so far. They are really doing trustfull & nice work for their clients. 

Just would like to share couple of my impressive experience with this tour operator. 
- Day 1 :We sarted from Zurich and reached Cairo late night (12:00 am), and I thought someone from Shaspo will pick and arrange our accomodation. But i was suprised to see Mr. Sherif was waiting at the hotel reception to welcome us. He provided all vouchers of our entire trip of 8 days and left.
 
- Day 2: we reached Luxor and then there was guide Mr Mamood waiting for us and he helped us even to move our luggage and transferred to the Hotel. Very nice & kind man.
 
Day 3: at sharp 9:00 am the guide came to pickup us from hotel for our day tour of Luxor. Simply realized that Shaspo works only with nice people. Great experience.
 
Day4 - 7: Transferred to Sharm-el-Sheik - vola, great resort and facility and hospitality. We were really lucky to have a such a organized tour with great flixiblity
 
Day 8: Back to Cairo and tranferred to hotel for night sleep as our flight was very next day early morning. There also Mr Sherif was waiting for us to say Good Bye and also to make sure that everything was fine with our entire trip.

Last but not least: at current situation we were worried lots about security issues around Egypt. But to be honest, Egypt is still safe and especially for tourist. The tour operator like Shaspo, they care of you at every stage- no doubt that Shaspo is one whom you could trust for your entire comforatble trip along with safty measures.

My great thanks to  Shaspo and Mr. Sherif who offered life time experience. Thanks a lot.
