    The Nile Discovery tour with Topdeck was amazing! Everything was organised really well & we felt so safe having insider knowledge in each destination we visited. Hany & Meena were super fun & flexible with plans so we all got to enjoy it to the fullest! Would 100% recommend

    All I can say is AMAZING! Me and my partner Kane have travelled a long way for this trip and waited a life time to come to Egypt. With the help of Top deck and specially Hany, has made our life time trip the most memorable trip we could ask for! The highlight of our trip was the Boat party and dressing up in our ancient Egyptian clothes and having a good time together. We have made friends for a life time on this trip, & I can not thank Hany more, for looking after us, making sure we were okay the whole trip. It’s saddly coming to an end. All I want to say is that who ever said Egypt is not safe, well it is!!! And the cruise was the best ever! I can highly recommend, & also... if your in Hanys group, you will have the best time. So chill & relaxing. We are truly going to miss Egypt

    The tour was really well run. Hany went out of his way, beyond what would be expected from a tour guide. He made sure everyone had a good time and everything went smoothly. I have been on many tours including Contiki and have found Hany to have been the best of them all! I also found the driver and any support staff were also friendly and helpful . Special mention to Sam, one of the guides who went of his way and explained the history of Egypt to a tee. He definitely was passionate and made things easy to understand. Egypt is a must visit! I cannot recommend the tour enough.

    Such a wonderful tour! Especially our tour leader Haney, Mina and Hamada. Not only did they show us the beautiful temples, but they were kind and friendly and showed us the real culture of Egypt! So happy we went, and I'd encourage everyone to. Egypt is beautiful and Topdeck does it so well!

    You could have give an estimate amount to the entrance tickets for this tour. The overnight transportation (16h) was very uncomfortable. I wouldn't have minded paying a hundred more for a domestic flight.

    A great way to see the major Egyptian attractions in a week - so much jammed in to one week but it did not feel rushed. Therefore be prepared for very early wake up calls (4/5am) and long bus rides (10-14 hours) on very average roads - this isn’t made very clear by top deck before booking. The guides and leaders are fantastic and a highlight in their own right. Credit to topdeck here sourcing these individuals. The down sides for me are that the food on the tour is largely included in the trip and therefore highly westernised. I would of preferred more freedom to choose local food. Whilst I found some, I personally prefer to eat local as much as possible. However due to the uncertainty around hygiene the tour prefers to play it safe for those less adventurous. Last, As the itinerary was so packed there wasn’t much time to explore Egypt on your own. So understand that you will spend a lot of time with the tour group and have little chance to spend half a day on your own. All in all, I had a good time and saw everything I wanted to see. Highly recommended for those who just want to see the amazing country and ancient history. Not so suitable for those looking to relax, party or individually explore the culture.

    It was an amazing tour of Egypt! Our tour leader Willy was awesome. He was helpful and always made sure we are safe and having a good time. He made extra effort to make the trip worthwhile for all of us. Our tour guide Medo was equally exceptional armed with enthusiasm and knowledge of the Egyptian culture and history. We were hesistant at first to come to Egypt for our safety but never had we felt we were in danger in any way. It was a memorable experience having been able to experience and see Egypt.
