Default August 11 Millennium - Private Egypt Group Tour

Is there anybody interested in joining or forming a Private Group Tour in Egypt to make sure that we will have enough people on a bus for the tour agency to have security on board/escort ?
The agencies that I am checking into are : Champion Tour (www.champion-tours.com), Creative Travel(www.creative-egypt.com) , Egypt Holidays (www.egypt-holidays.com).

Of course, the cost (e.g. $90/p for Champion) will be cheaper than the ship's excursion ($159/p) and we don't have to go in a herd with 1500-2000 people ( the ship is full ).

If somebody already has a similar itinerary set up, I will be happy to join you too provided that the security issue is resolved.

P.S. I understand ALL tours leave Alexandria in a caravan with armed escorts. It is the rest of the itinerary that I am worried about.

Alex I think there are already several people booked with champion on the 08.11.01 sailing. A friend just returned from the 05.31.01trip on Millie they used Champion and were full of praise. We were originaly booked on the 31st cruise but
had to change to the 08.11.01 at the last minute Champion changed our booking no problem. From our friends review it would apear that Champion although small company are trying very hard to attract Celebrity customers. I believe they run tours in Egypt for Rennaissence.

I would be interested in joining up with this group. We are a party of six. Let me know if you get a critical mass. I am already booked on the ship's tour, but will cancel if a better arrangement comes along.

Hi Alex-

Just saw your post re a private tour in Egypt. My mother and I are also on the August 11 cruise to the Med and are trying to determine what to do in Egypt. How far have you gotten in arranging a group? Are you still working on it? Any information you can provide would be appreciated. We do not want to do a ship tour, but my mom is concerned about security issues.

Great to meet someone from our ship!!

Christine

Alex -

I will be on the 8/11 Millenium cruise with my wife and 14-year old son. I've booked the ship's 14-hour tour (though I can still cancel it) out of concerns about security and not making it back to the ship on time and because the tour covers all of the places we want to see - Cairo Museum, Sphinx, Pyramids. If you have a better deal, I'm open to suggestions. I have also heard all about the horrors of the 1,400 passengers waiting in line to board the ship's tour buses.
