Private tours versus group tours
Escorted group tours cater to several people in a single trip. It is likely that some of the activities that are organized as a part of the tour may not interest you. You will also be constrained by the timings of the group tour - when to wake up, when to leave the hotel, when to see a particular sight. You may end up feeling like you have visited Egypt but not really experienced it.
Private tours are more flexible and give travelers a chance to experience things at their own pace. You can check off items off your bucket list - like riding a camel during sunset while enjoying the views of the Giza Pyramids. Sights that are otherwise very crowded like the Egyptian Museum, can be enjoyed in complete privacy with private openings conducted by your travel agency. Private tours also allow travelers to connect more personally and intimately with the local people, culture, and lifestyle. You get your own personal time with the Egyptologist and driver, so you can decide where you want to go and when. You can also define the level of comfort you would like - if you want a luxury holiday in Egypt , then that is exactly what your travel agency will design for you and your family.
