I just returned from one of the best trips I've taken on either GCT or OAT because we had a marvelous guide in Amin. I cannot sing his praises enough. He was not only experienced and knowledgeable about the sites we went to but was compassionate and caring and concerned for all his people on the Red Bus - he was especially kind to me as I had just suffered the loss of my sister a week before the trip. He emailed me twice to ask what he could do and urged me to go on the trip as planned. He provided me with a cell phone contact to call home and was always there for other travelers if they got sick or needed a doctor.
Amin is a wonderful ambassador for his country - his love and pride in Egypt is apparent in his presentations. He also has a wonderful sense of humor and kept the Red Bus laughing every day. I had recommended two of my friends to go on this trip with me and this trip more than met their expectations - they are now ambassadors for GCT as well.
If you planning a trip to the Egypt/Nile - I hope your guide will be Amin. He is one of the best,
