Alice "Itinerary and schedules covered all the highlights of Egypt. I also went to optional tours - Alexandria and Abu Simbel, among others. In addition, our tour guide, Kero arranged for other tours - Coptic Cairo, the Palace and Cairo Tower. He also provided a lot of useful information, has a great sense of humor and went above and beyond to make the tour amazing! Accomodations is what you paid for..."

    It was a good tour with an extensive itinerary. The hotels and cruise were good too. The guide was wonderful and helpful. Nothing was too much for him. The only point I feel it could improve were the very early morning wake up calls !!!
