    3.5 - Good

    The sites that were taken in were INCREDIBLE! There was very LITTLE down time, so if you are looking for a slow relaxing holiday, this is not the one to choose. If you are however full of energy and are ok surviving on limited sleep to take it all in, then absolutely this trip is for you. Few pointers that are important! - Make sure to exchange your money to the local Egyptian Pound, it is MUCH MUCH easier to use. - With the money, ensure you have a LOT of smaller amounts such as 5 Egyptian pounds, as that is what you have to pay to use every single public toilet. - If you want to book additional tours then make sure you have that money in CASH (USD, EURO or EGYPTIAN POUNDS). The price list you see for the temples, that is basically mandatory so have that money also available in cash. - Time between breakfast and lunch is LONG so make sure you pack and or buy enough food to sustain you for those long periods! Trust me on this one. The bus always sells water, so don't worry about pre stocking that at the hotels pre bus departure. - A kind tip to leave to the tour guides is an average of 50 Egyptian Pounds cash per day. This of course will vary based on your experience. They have Uber in Egypt and so if you wanted to go out independently then its a great app to use and safe! Overall this is a fantastic trip and I had a blast. OH, SIGN UP FOR THE HOT AIR BALLOON RIDE.... JUST DO IT!

    Great time. Really busy and early mornings but 100% worth it!! You get to see a lot in little time. Feels like you're there for 2 weeks (in a good way). Take advantage of the hot air balloon. Amazing!!!!

    The trip is 100% worth it.. Egypt is an incredible place with thousands of years of history which you try to cover in 9 days.. the result is full of memories and impressions. However, as it is expected it is a quite full schedule. Nevertheless our tour guide Peter was excellent and made our trip unforgettable with his pleasant attitude, knowledge about history, flexibility and ability to adapt to all situations.. we never had any concern about the arrangements since Peter has a competent answer for everything.. Also we really appreciate that he always tried to give to all of us enough free time to explore the monuments also by ourselves. we hilgly recommend this tour..

    What an absolutely excellent trip! Medhat was such a great, knowledgeable and chilled tour guide who really made the 9 days fly by. The night on the felucca on the Nile (although cold!) was one of the highlights. Would definitely recommend!!

    2.0 - Rather poor

    Peter was excellent and a great tour guide. However, the tour was a lot more strenuous than I had been led to believe. My mother was not able to participate in hardly any of the tours. There were a lot of early mornings with packed breakfasts and the food included in the tour was horrible! It is worth it to pay extra and get food elsewhere. All that was included were buffets with poor quality food and myself, my mother, and daughter wound up getting extremely sick from food poisoning. The hotels were also sub-par. They are claimed to be 4 stars but in the U.S. they would only be rated maybe one star. The Oasis was run down and dated, and the Nile river cruise ship used was small and a little dated as well with little amenities. I thought that the grand seas resort in Hurgada would have more promise, but the hotel was terrible with rude staff and again awful food. I would have booked completely different hotels had I planned this trip myself. We had to harrass the staff to let us stay at a better hotel on our return to Cairo instead of going back to the Oasis and this transaction resulted in "Ramy" pocketing almost $120 from me. Come to find out he was able to get a really cheap discount for the hotel and he charged me full price and kept my cash. I chalked this up to business..However, at the end of the trip he claimed that my mother owed him $250 and he harassed us in our hotel lobby and even proceeded with us to the airport which almost caused us to miss our flight.

    Guide was very knowledgeable and informative at all the places we visited. He was organised and punctual and we had enough time to relax as well. Transport was punctual and drivers were mostly good although seat belts would make me feel safer. Food was good however it would be better if more meals were included. Overall it was an amazing experience!
