    Our tour guide Mohomed Fouad (Medu) was excellent and had so much knowledge on everything we visited - there wasn't one question he didn't know the answer to. The places we went were great and the hotels were good for the most part too

    There were so many frustrating aspects to this trip, mostly the discrepancy between advertised prices and the real prices.
