Gate 1 Travel / Tour guide was very rude

1 Egypt Review updated:

Went on a tour of Jordan and Egypt two weeks ago. Jordan was great, our tour guide there was so informative and friendly and always welcomed questions from us. Our Egypt guide on the other-hand(Ameen) was very rude from the start. Instead of taking control of his group when he wanted to talk about something he would pout and whine that no one listens to him in a very unprofessional way and would get upset if some one would ask him a question, because he felt that questions should be asked after the tour and not during the tour because felt it slowed down the process (whatever).

    I have no idea of your expectation of every tour guide you will experience but if this is a "group" tour, the tour
    guide has to accomodate the "masses". Sounds very reasonable for a "group" tour guide to ask that you hold your questions and he or she will probably address it in their regular presentations. The guides are usually also responsible to keep the "train" running on time. They have to meet time deadlines and get the most information to you in the time they have allotted. If they open up the floodgates of individual questions during their talks at each site, there are distractions, delays and everyone suffers.
    Judging from your dismissive "whatever", sounds like you might be an immature kid in an adult's body. Only junior high kids on groups tours get upset because they can't interrupt the tour guide when they are speaking inorder to get your personal spur of the moment thought addressed. (whatever dude)
    If this is REALLY your complaint, hire a private one on one tour guide at a higher price and they can be your on the spot
    expert at your command.

    We were on an Egyptian tour with gate one and it was truly one of our best tours ever. The guide had her masters degree and was working on coming to the UNited States to continue her studies. She was extremely proud of her heritage and shared it with us! She would get us up every morning very early and when anyone in the group complained she would tell us - " You can sleep when you get home" To this day - we laugh and use that same line when we travel. Thanks you Gate One for our fabulous Egyptian trip!!
