Subject: Egyptian tour companies
Hi Fellow Ziners,

I'm touring the Oregon beaches with Roger next week. Since he's originally from Maine, he's seen the East coast beaches but never the West coast. He's in for a good time with beautiful scenery!

But my question for the group is about Egyptian tour companies. I have Delta FF miles which are burning a hole in my account & I've always wanted to see Egypt & Covadonga's report a few weeks ago re-whetted my appetite! I was researching land packages & really want just a hosted tour with hotel, guides, transportation, not fully guided with a whole tour group of people. I came to & found several Egyptian tour companies & wonder if anyone has recommendations or cautions against any of them: Milano Travel-Egypt, Delta Tours-Egypt, Bestway Tours & Safari? Also has anyone taken the night train from Cairo to Aswan and/or a bus from Hurghada to Cairo? These less expensive tours do that amount of ground transportation instead of the more expensive flying to those spots. Is it safe to do that? I want to do a few nights in Cairo, Nile cruise, see the sites along the Nile, of course, & maybe go to Hurghada on the Red Sea. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Carol Bailey Priest Lake, Idaho
