The Taste of Egypt
Ahmed & Salah
Who we are? And how did "The Taste of Egypt" start?
It all started in December of 2009 with 2 Egyptian/American friends (Ahmed & Salah) who wanted to take 8 of their good friends to Egypt. But the friends wanted their friends to tag along and their friends wanted their families to tag along and so on until we ended up with 32 people.
Wanting to give our friends (and their family & friends) the best experience of their life we started planning the best trip of Egypt for the least amount of money possible!
In the process we discovered that the prices that travel agencies offer for their so called "all inclusive"/ "complete tours of Egypt" to be simply outrageous! So instead we let our life long friends who still live in Egypt loose on the mission of booking the best hotels and tours with the Egyptian pricing Vs. the tourist prices that we received from the tourism companies.
The result was a trip of a lifetime that our 32 new friends decided to call "The Taste of Egypt" which was later named by a few of them "the feast of Egypt" and also "the all you can eat buffet of Egypt" because they simply said "what we got was a whole lot more than a taste".
With more friends wanting to go and many people out there that haven't fulfilled their dream of visiting Egypt we decided to put together more trips until there is no one left wanting to go to Egypt!!
How do we do it? And what makes our trips NOT COMPARABLE to any other trip to Egypt?
We simply do it by having our men on the ground in Egypt who don't just simply book all the hotels for the local prices but also go around talking to the vendors and service providers to seal the lowest prices on sight seeing and transportation and meals (the kind of prices that the tourism company get their deals for then turn around and sell them to the tourists for double!).
And then when the group arrives to Egypt we don't have a company representative who is only there to get a paycheck or make a commission picking them up from the airport! No, instead we have our best friends and your new "Egyptian buddies" picking you up from the airport and being there with you in EVERY STEP of the way, so that you are not there as a tourist but you are there with a friend.
And your "Egyptian buddies" are not just there to keep you company! their task is to make sure every part of the trip is perfected by the vendors and sight seeing companies so that you don't miss out on any thing. they also make sure you are not tricked into paying any extra money for some thing that could be done for free and make sure that you get the most for your money...... After all they are Egyptian and speak the language and know the people.
But their main responsibility is to be your point of contact and the ones responsible for making sure that your trip is stress free and worry free as they are taking care of all the negotiating for you while you simply enjoy a trip of a life time.
