    Three weeks before our departure for Egypt I realized that organizing our trip alone was almost impossible and too complicated… so I did some research and I came across Terra trips! by reading the reviews on different sites I was quickly convinced! So I contacted Amro and I explained to him the places I wanted to visit. The next day he offered me an extremely detailed, complete and completely personalized program! After a brief telephone conversation, I immediately gave my full confidence to Amro and God knows how complicated it is for a person like me who has this need to manage and master everything! Dozens of them followed. of email exchange, as soon as I had a question or a request I could be sure to have an answer the same day!D-Day arrives: from the second we set foot at the airport in Egypt we were taken care of by the correspondents of Amro! Whether it was for the purchase of visas, or the recovery of suitcases for which we had a problem and which Amro also managed! At 3 am Amro was there to welcome us and accompany us to our hotel room to make sure everything was ok! Not once during the whole stay did we feel alone or lost! Regarding the tourist guides, we had Ali and Mohamed (Momo)! We didn't know that it was possible to get so attached to people in such a short time. Ali will remain our favorite of the trip, a simple and so kind whole human person who is extremely passionate about his work! We will never forget it!!!! We also had an exceptional driver Youssef, a wonderful meeting just like Ali, a good, serious and very kind man! Our second guide Momo is also a favorite! Such a funny person, passionate about his job and so concerned about our well-being! And we never get bored with him! Halfway through the stay, we were starting to get a little tired and Momo reorganized all the activities to make it less hard! As for Amro, he kept his promise to give us a wonderful stay! only one day when he didn't call us to find out if everything was fine! until the last second he accompanied us in our steps (airport, PCR test ...) Hotels, restaurants, private guides, private cruise drivers, visits ... everything was managed by Terra trips we just had to put down our suitcases and let yourself be guided by the team! I am absolutely not a fan of organized trips, I prefer to organize everything myself, but for once it was a real revelation! And without a doubt I would use the services of Terra trips again for our next trips to Egypt, it's them and no one else! A thousand thousand thousand thanks to the whole team you made us spend an incredible unforgettable stay … we are marked forever ??Chaima and wissemTravel from October 17 to 27

    Easy and responsive contact with total flexibility on the content of the trip (10 days: Cairo, Cruise and Hurghada). Perfect organization. No stress. We were taken care of as soon as the plane landed in Cairo. Amro takes news every lunchtime and is very responsive. We asked to do things not on the program and Amro was on top of that. The guides speak French very well and are very friendly. Special mention to Nadia who regaled us with information in Cairo. Brilliant experience on our part. We recommend 100%: they are responsive, professional, friendly and attentive! Romain & Laetitia

    Hello everyone, Terra Trips is a very nice agency on a human scale, far from mass tourism. Armo takes care of you, from the realization of the estimate until your return to France! The guides and drivers are very respectful, passionate and take into account your desires or your constraints. We had a wonderful trip and Terra Trips greatly participated in it. You can go there with your eyes closed.

    We left at 6 with the agency "Terra Trips". To the concern of having chosen an Egyptian agency for this trip, we were surprised by a very good organization! As soon as we arrived, we were picked up at the airport by a Terra Trips agent for all the formalities (visa, luggage). We had guides with a high level of knowledge, perfect French and a driver in Cairo who was very good at slipping between cars!! Ali showed us around the souks of Cairo where we had tea with the Egyptians, Alexandria and its citadel as well as the most beautiful mosques with their stories. We were able to climb to the top of a minaret to discover Cairo, a panoramic view of the life of the Cairenes. Ali is inexhaustible on Saqqara and Giza and the history of his country. Youssef, our driver, made us discover a cheese… specialty of the countryside (to test especially the fermented one)!!! Ahmed in the south, revealed to us the beauties of the Nile, the felucca rides and allowed us to swim in the clear waters of the cataracts. He sent us up in the air in a hot air balloon to see the sunrise over Luxor and the Valley of the Queens…Each day, Amro, the Agency Manager, called us to make sure everything was going well. He was even kind enough to offer us a HUGE cake for Gilles' 50th birthday! We come back with a multitude of memories and photos and especially beautiful encounters with this Terra Trips team that we strongly recommend. Amro adapts your stay, duration, places… If you want to visit Egypt and share humanly, then do not hesitate. As we said on a video with Terra Trips it's the trip!!!! ;-) Eric, Sandra and their children Elias and Alexandre, Gilles and Patricia

    My boyfriend and I went on vacation with the agency Terra Trips in August 2021. We chose to trust Amro to organize our trip and we were delighted !! First of all we visited Cairo and the pyramids with a great guide and a great driver (Ali and Youcef whom we thank). Ali is passionate about his job and will be able to answer all your questions without forgetting that he is very kind and attentive! Then we went to southern Egypt to continue our experience and we met Moustafa our guide. He was able to pass on his knowledge to us in a fun way and was very attentive to our needs and desires. We were delighted to spend our holidays by his side! Regarding the support of Amro, everything went extremely well during the assistance for the procedures at the airport, the reservation of hotels etc… In addition we asked to do an additional visit during our trip and Amro and Moustafa were very responsive and arranged an additional slot for us. We will end by thanking the whole team and partners (hotel, drivers etc…) of terra trips and in particular our guides and Amro for this week which will remain etched in our memories!! THANKS WE ARE EXCITED?

    Citizen Erased

    We finally decided to go to Egypt! Given that we were planning to leave only between girls, we hoped to find a serious agency that will supervise and accompany us throughout our stay. By searching on forums we found the agency Terra-Trips, local agency, serious and very often recommended, managed by Amro. We therefore, via their website, made a request for an "all inclusive" quote in which we listed the places and remains that we wanted to visit, our dates , our budget and other small points. Amro was very responsive (as throughout our stay), and concocted a trip for us that perfectly matched our expectations and our budget. He really took care of all the formalities, visits, internal flights, declarations etc. We just had to let ourselves be guided and appreciate the beauty of the sites of Egyptian history. We wanted to split our trip into two parts: First week "discovery" and second week "rest" in all inclusive. So we started our trip in Cairo where we were supervised by a superb guide: Ali, who accompanied us throughout our stay in the North, and we also had a private driver, Youssef. Amro had then booked our internal flight to go to Aswan, in the South where we met our very nice new guide Ahmed. Then followed a small cruise on the Nile for 3 days to reach Luxor, the last stage of our "discovery" journey before going to our Hotel "all inclusive” carefully booked by Amro, who was also: superb! During this second week we also had a Terra-Trips representative to help us and who was able to respond when we s wanted to book additional activities such as diving for example. Throughout this trip, Amro called us every day to ensure that everything was going as desired and that we had no worries. who would be a little worried about traveling to Egypt, know that you will be accompanied at all times. At the airports, we had a person with us to take care of the tickets, our suitcases and to pick us up at our arrival. In the hotels, the guides take care of our Check In and other formalities. And another small advantage: the private car which saves us a lot of time because we do not have to wait for all the passengers to be properly boarded to leave (unlike the bus). To conclude, we recommend this agency to 200%! Thanks to Amro and the whole team!

    10-day stay for two between Cairo and Aswan via Luxor with driver and private guide organized by the company Terra Trips. We chose this format because we don't like group visits, and the mass effect; and in this Terra Trip perfectly met our expectations.

    Stay at the end of February 2020. So many good memories! we still think about it today! and what organization! You can leave with Amro in peace: he will be there to take care of you with great kindness (how nice!!). Everything is really well organized, you are taken care of as soon as you get off the plane, we even help you to go through customs, he will do the visa for you, you can if you want to buy a telephone/internet package right away at 15 € so convenient! The choice of hotel in Cairo was impeccable, very pleasant staff, swimming pool, the taxi driver: extra! The next day the guide is there, at the reception and all the visits follow one another really well, no fatigue, the taxi always picks you up on time, no long walks to pick it up! Ali the guide takes great care, we were girls, he was able to adapt to our desires, and we did a lot of things that weren't on the program. After: the descent of the Nile for me was like in a dream, it's really magical to be on the bridge and watch the banks of the Nile pass by. All the visits were great, and the boat was brand new, very clean! When we got back, Amro was there, waiting for us at Cairo airport: we were able to debrief the trip and the next day he was still there to accompany us at the airport! I only wish you one thing: that you have as wonderful a time as we did in Egypt and it will be thanks to Amro and his team!!!

    We had very little time to prepare our trip to Egypt, so we opted for an agency, the TERRA TRIPS agency. Quickly, thanks to the knowledge of the place of the director of the agency, Mr. Amro, we set up a circuit, corresponding well to our wishes. And we won't regret it, we can assure you that we had an extraordinary trip that kept its promises. Mr. Amro was often present, we really felt safe. We were able to visit exceptional sites with the advantage of private visits.Mr. Amro put together unforgettable tours for us, with hotels and restaurants and exemplary organization. He provided us with two guides Ali and Mohamed, who were always present and who knew how to captivate us with the stories of the history of Egypt and its archaeology. They are wells of knowledge and it's a pleasure to visit with them. They know how to adapt to our desires and answer all our questions. A thank you also for our driver who knew how to charm us with his smile and his songs. We can only recommend the Terra-trips agency and its "on-board captain" Mr. Amro. Everything was perfect, do not hesitate to entrust him with your next trip, you will not be disappointed.

    Hello, we have just returned from a 10 day trip with Terra Trips (private trip of 6 people), organized by its Director Amro for more than 6 months. the one who seemed to me the most suitable for organizing our trip. Before finalizing the circuit, Amro was very present and we communicated several times, himself calling us directly. We paid by bank transfer 50% for the trip about 3 months before and the balance 15 days before departure. Everything was organized perfectly (a person waiting for us at the airport for customs and visa formalities, management of our two domestic flights, Amro himself at the airport exit for introduce yourself and give us the last instructions before our circuit. Very good vehicles, very good drivers, very good Guides (Ali and Ahmed) with perfect punctuality. Great flexibility during the circuit to add ter things not planned, or modify some of them. Not being specialists in Ancient Egypt, the guides knew how to put themselves at our level without inundating us with explanations so as not to bore us and rather to make us benefit from the pleasure of the eyes. But for those who want very detailed explanations, the level is there. Thanks also to Ramadan and the crew of the "Nebyt" during the private 3-day cruise on the Nile, it was perfect. A plus for the chef for so many meals as varied as good, from breakfast to dinner. Too bad the Nile was cold but we bathed anyway. The country itself is perfectly secure and tourists come back. We we had the chance to take a trip against the direction of the classic TOs and visited the sites with few people except Karnak. From Marie Hélène, Gabriel, Nicolas, Alexia, Marie and Christian A BIG THANK YOU TO TERRA TRIPS AND HIS TEAM

    In March 2019, I had the opportunity to visit Egypt with my son. We had chosen to trust Terra Trips to organize our trip and guide us once there. It was an excellent choice! Our stay was excellent, the choice of hotels, boat, visits, … everything corresponded to our expectations. Our guides were real professionals and very friendly. I recommend this agency if you want to make a beautiful trip to the land of the pharaohs.Patrick

    I went to Egypt for a few days at the beginning of the month. I didn't have a lot of time there and I wanted to make the most of it and have an immersion in the culture of the country. I contacted the Terra trips agency found via le petit futé and I had the pleasure of discussing with Amro. It was easy to develop the program around Cairo privatized and according to all my requests. He showed flexibility. Once there, everything went perfectly. My guide Mustapha was exceptional, always available and very precise in his indications. I learned a lot. The drivers were on top and Amro closely followed my whole stay with many attentions. I highly recommend the services of this agency. They are kind, helpful and offer quality services.

    Terra trips knew how to organize the trip we wanted, an unforgettable trip with the must-see sites but also visits off the beaten track and a very beautiful felucca cruise. We appreciated:- the relevance of the proposal in relation to our request, linked to a very good knowledge of the country and the expectations of Western travelers- the extreme responsiveness (late response, rescheduling of visits according to schedule changes)- the quality and kindness of the guides, the drivers and the crew of the felucca- the follow-up throughout the trip to ensure that it goes off without a hitch. We highly recommend.

    initially, I didn's not want a sightseeing tour and didn't want to spend my day seeing antiquities, being in Egypt for diving. Amro immediately understood, giving me a personalized and atypical visit, passing next to the horde of tourists to focus on a few more than interesting details. In addition, not wanting a classic restaurant, he took me to one of his friends for a typical cuisine. Terra Trip brought me everything I expected with always a smile and was on the lookout for my requests.

    An absolutely extraordinary trip with Terra Trips. Everything was absolutely taken care of from the beginning until the end of the trip: Amro, at the origin of this organization, takes care of absolutely everything This is an agency in human size which truly seeks to satisfy its customers, everything was done so that we could have a pleasant stay and above all: the guides are of high quality!!! No superficial explanations or desire to "do it quickly" / to shorten... We really feel the passion and the interest that drive them... Having compared a multitude of agencies before launching, I' I was able to see sometimes staggering prices offered by other companies... However, with Terra Trips, everything is absolutely personalized and you don't feel like you's been in tourist trunks, in buses or flat armored boats on board...It'was a little less than a month ago for us... And from the bottom of my heart, I recommend this wonderful trip that is Egypt with the agency Terra Trips... Because it' it has to be said, it's all this organization that allowed us to keep an exceptional memory of it... A big thank you to Amro and his kindness (anything unexpected? he really takes care of EVERYTHING), to Ali and his laughter, to Mohammed and his humor and to our Hazem, their driver...Very moved the last day at Cairo airport before taking our flight to Paris...In one word: GO FOR IT!!!

    We have just returned from a 19 day tour with Terra Trips. We traveled with our 16 and 19 year old daughters. This trip was enchanting and a source of permanent discovery. We usually travel independently but we preferred for Egypt to entrust the organization to a local agency which masters the constraints and customs on site. I sent my requests to Amro who prepared a very balanced circuit for us with an experience in the desert of two nights in bivouac which will remain unforgettable for us. Accompanied by Ali, our guide for the north of the country and Mahmoud, our driver in the desert, we discovered fabulous landscapes at sunrise, sunset with magical light. Ali has always been a source of knowledge, whether on daily life, culture or history. He gave us many anecdotes and spared no time to answer our many questions. Many thanks to him for his patience, his kindness and his availability. His visit to Cairo was magical for us. A big thank you also to Mohamed who accompanied us in the southern part of the country: cruise on the Nile, day of fishing at Lake Nasser and all the magnificent visits: Abu Simbel, Philae... Amro and his whole team prepared a trip for us thought out in down to the smallest detail: what comfort! And what we appreciated above all was the ability to adapt, to immediately find a solution when something unexpected happens. Leave with confidence, Amro takes care of everything !!Wonderful trip, wonderful family experience.

    In May 2011, I went to Egypt for 15 days with my 89-year-old mother. I had chosen the Terra Trips Agency on the Internet and I admit that I was a little worried at the time, just after the terrible events beginning of the year. But Amro was waiting for us in Cairo and then it was a wonderful stay with him and our driver. The circuit was well thought out for my mother and we enjoyed ourselves all along. Welcoming, kindness, Amro's very interesting comments on the culture of his country...everything was there. It'is a very professional agency that I recommend without hesitation.

    We went to Egypt for 10 days last April and we had chosen the local agency Terra Trip. We had a personal guide and driver. We noted "Punctuality, seriousness, excellent knowledge, kindness" on the part of these people"Everything was organized perfectly We let ourselves be carried away...Mr. Amro, the Director of the Agency, welcomed us to Cairo despite the late hour (2am!) and every day we had a phone call from him to find out if we were satisfied. At our request, he agreed to add visits and this for free! This trip left us with wonderful memories, and I think we will return, there are still so many sites to discover! What wonders! It's great! I highly recommend this agency.

    Hello, Already a lot of very good comments on Terra Trips, and here is another one! We left for 8 days for two, between Cairo, Aswan, Luxor and Hurghada, all organized by Amro from Terra Trips. Nothing to say, everything went very well! Few unforeseen events and in any case Amro was very present throughout the stay to adapt our program if necessary. was proposed by our guide Ahmed, ex-tra! In short, very good memories 🙂 Thank you Terra Trips!

    Second trip with Terra Trips in 2020 (the 1st in 2011). An always warm welcome, a perfect, personalized and attentive organization, knowledgeable and friendly guides (we had the happy surprise to see again in Cairo, Mustapha who had already accompanied us in 2011 !!!…). We do not hesitate to encourage our friends, our family to visit Egypt in complete confidence with Terra-Trips. So our opinion: if you want to visit Egypt outside of large groups and circuits, Amro will be able to offer you "your circuit "…Have a good trip !

    Hello, My husband and I have just returned from an 8-day tour in Egypt. We were hesitating between 2 local agencies, and it was finally to Terra Trips (recommended on the backpacker's blog) that we left. Amro, the director of the agency is the ideal contact to easily organize a tailor-made trip to Egypt. And we were not disappointed, our individual circuit went perfectly. A support by the agency right out of the plane allowed us to save a lot of time obtaining the visa and going through customs. We are immediately put in confidence by Amro's friendliness and desire to do well. The stay will be just perfect: From Cairo to Abu Simbel, we fell under the spell of the Nile: dozens of temples in an incredible state of preservation, the thrill when we are alone to visit a tomb discovered a few weeks ago (Indiana atmosphere Jones!), the discovery of the pyramids on the back of a camel (also the best way to take the most beautiful photos of the pyramids), the incredible beauty of the tombs of the Valley of the Kings (wow guaranteed!), The unknown but superb Valley of the queens that we were the only ones to visit, the temple of Luxor by night (magical), The "Agatha Christian" charm of the cruise on the Nile (I know, it's not said but I couldn't find a better qualifier) , without forgetting the fabulous temple of Abu Simbel (wow too!). The advantage of going through Terra Trips is that they made us discover, in addition to the great classics, monuments very little frequented by tour operators because it was impossible to access for a large group (like certain tombs) or simply a little further away, like the Valley of the Queens. Unfortunately for the Egyptians, the sites are very little frequented, even deserted. We spent more than 20 minutes, alone in front of and in the Abu Simbel temple. The magic of the sites is increased tenfold and the photos a little more authentic without the Japanese girls dressed up as Hello Kitty princesses right in the center! Thanks to the omnipresence of the police and the army, at no time did we feel insecure. I will end by thanking the guides, Wallid and Mina, for their kindness, their knowledge, their great flexibility... escape the vendors in the tourist stalls.

    We are a single couple very happy with the trip we have just had with your Agency. The two guides were particularly competent, very attentive to us to satisfy all our wishes. We were able to visit the sites quietly often without the inconvenience of tourist coaches thanks to their judicious choices of timetables. The two hotels in Cairo were up to standard. European 4 stars. For the cruise our cabin was spacious with a bathroom (shower) of a good standard. On the boat, the meals in the form of a buffet were correct, but perhaps lacked variety. The drivers were calm and level-headed. They were punctual at the meeting, everything was perfectly coordinated. We very much appreciated the help at the airport to complete the formalities. In summary: PERFECT We can only highly recommend this agency. Bernard and Françoise

    Hello, We spent 10 days in Egypt (Cairo, pyramids, cruise on the Nile, Red Sea) with Terra Trips. Everything went extremely well, from the discussion to preparing for the trip (very precise and very responsive email exchanges with Amro, which made us decide to choose the agency), the choice of the 2 guides (Ali for Cairo and the pyramids and Ahmed for the Nile valley), the always very caring support (guides of course, drivers, phone calls,...) to the special attentions for our honeymoon. The guides know how to adapt very well to our preferences and most of the time we visited the sites far from the armada of tourists. We can only urge you to go with them! All our contacts shared their love for their country with us. Thank you Amro, Ali and Ahmed. Fran & Romain

    We traveled with Terra-Trips in April 2009. For all those who are wondering the questions that I asked myself a few months before leaving:- First of all the agency Terra-Trips, it'is Amro Terra him -even. Therefore, everything depends on him and he is really serious. Amro is a very nice person and very attentive to his customers. We exchanged by email a good forty times to refine the service I wanted and he always responded in a positive spirit (even though I thought I had become a boring customer myself!). - He organized everything on site: transfers, hotel reservations, restaurants, train tickets, visits, boats,... We let ourselves be carried away with complete confidence. In short, the holidays! - We paid with the "Kilk & Pay" system via the internet using a Visa card. First 50% on order. Then another game a week before leaving. Then 1,000 €uros in cash on arrival at the airport. We had the corresponding invoices as we went along. The only thing we lacked to be totally reassured before leaving, were "vouchers" confirming hotel reservations, but Amro told us that he was going to work on it.- As far as we are concerned, he accompanied us throughout the trip, which is particularly reassuring in a country whose culture you don't know and whose language you don't speak. Clearly, we had our guide all to ourselves + a driver (sometimes 2 for long journeys). Under these conditions, the prices announced by Amro are very reasonable, given the service. Compare what is comparable: any Tour Operator recognized on the public square, ensuring you all the visits as well as all the meals, will take you at least 20% more.- Egypt is already a country with extraordinary cultural richness , but Egypt with Amro is really a fantastic experience. And when you know how much the country needs tourism to ensure its development, you shouldn't hesitate to combine business with pleasure by choosing to travel with Terra-Trips.- No, nothing at all, we don't regret nothing: thank you Amro!

    We traveled with our 11-year-old son to Egypt last February, 11 days from Cairo to Abu Simbel. After several searches for local agencies on the Internet, and despite a slightly higher rate than other agencies, we chose Terra Trips for the friendliness and professionalism of Amro with whom we were able to talk several times over the phone. We were hesitating between the cruise and car part for the whole stay and given the age of our son, he strongly advised us to for the car, which allowed us to make visits every morning until 2 p.m. and then to rest in the hotels and enjoy the swimming pools. Perfect welcome, daily presence by telephone, guides speaking French very well ( special mention for Hamed, our "southern" guide who was able to adapt perfectly to our timings and was able to interest our son with games and anecdotes... Trip entirely "about me sure", readjusted on a daily basis, permanent presence of a person with us, local restaurants, unique discoveries and "just for us", we really had a wonderful trip, both at the cultural level and at the human level. !!!

    Hello, At the end of 2018, 4 of us traveled to Egypt, once again choosing Amro Terra from Terra Trips, which we knew for having already appreciated its know-how, the good organization and the friendly and relaxed nature of the relations with himself and with the guides he offers. Good company and very efficient guides. We had indeed kept an excellent memory of superb previous trips during which we explored the White Desert, the Oasis of Siwa, the Fayoun, the Mediterranean Coast, Alexandria and of course Cairo. We trusted Terra Trips completely for all these trips and we were not disappointed. For the end of year celebrations 2018-19 Amro organized a trip for us from Luxor to Aswan. The classic visits around Luxor and then Aswan were very exciting and embellished with original discoveries through contacts and organized meals among residents. Then we were on a very beautiful Dahabieh, a sailing boat sailing on the Nile that can be taken in tow in the event of a lack of wind. An original way to sail on the Nile and to discover villages where classic cruise ships do not approach. Life on board was very pleasant, in small groups (10 passengers traveling with their guides). The meals on board were delicious, varied but we warn you the alcohol was not found!!! think about it first! On December 31, we woke up under the starry sky and the crew treated us to a little musical and dancing show! It was very good and we will travel again with Terra Trips: Egypt is an ever-renewed discovery.
