    Mohammad was good for our beginning day and end day. Ayman was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable, relaxed, and made for a great tour. The transportation was a bit chaotic at times. There weren’t always enough seats on the bus, and we thought we would be... Read more

    Mohammed (in Cairo) was good & Ayman (from Luxor to Aswan) was excellent. His knowledge, enthusiastic presentation and attentiveness were second to none. We all felt safe and well informed throughout the tour and it was an experience of Egypt from start to... Read more

    I had a great time touring Egypt with Mado. He was super helpful with any questions I had as well as sorting out travel/accommodations for the extra days spent in the country. Hope to come back soon!

    He is nice guide, but more smile and loud voice would be perfect.

    It's not the first time I've used this site for 3 very good reasons. It's easier to navigate than most of the individual companies websites, it's a one stop shop (all the tours from the different companies are in one place) and to top it off its often cheaper than going direct
