    Sam was amazing and set the bar really high. We had a ton of fun. I will say that we weren't aware that it would be somewhat of a younger crowd (early to mid 20's) and some in their early 30's as well, which was great and fitting for us but just something we weren't exactly expecting which could have just been naive on our part. Just be ready for a lot of action and fun and the trip of a lifetime! I would even do this tour again... Although I might choose the cruise just because I like my comforts and a bit more privacy, however the Felucca is still epic fun! Felucca is just a bit more of a party and you all sleep in an open area on the Felucca. Both are great options that just depends of what type of experience you are going for. There is so much to learn from the history of Egypt and Sam is SO filled with information that I could go again and learn so much more. Everyone went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied. Even the bus driver added a lot of fun to the trip! We fell in LOVE with Egypt! Thank you Sam and friends!! xoxo

    The trip was fast-paced but amazing. Our guide Sam was outstanding - one of my best memories from Egypt was when he took myself and a few others to a Nubian village to watch the World Cup semifinal - it wasn't part of the itinerary and he didn't have to do it, but it was characteristic of the way he looked after everybody and made sure we were having the best time possible. Nothing was too much to ask of him. He understood the group dynamics perfectly and had great banter with us; it made his explanations very engaging and easy to understand. I especially loved the way he got us to act out some Egyptian stories - that is something unique that I have never seen before, and I think is characteristic of an awesome guide. The whole tour is great, but it was Sam that made it truly exceptional.

    Sam was a fantastic tour guide with so much knowledge to share about Egypt. He was very engaging when he spoke to us and gave great stories and information without giving us information overload. We even got to role play one story. Sam was extremely friendly and helpful the entire tour.

    Cannot speak highly enough of Sam. He's an awesome guide. He understood the group perfectly and gave us the right amount of information. He made a lot of effort to make sure we understood the key points of the huge amounts of history that Egypt has to offer. He was super helpful, fun and used creative ways to teach us the history at different sites. He clearly has a lot of knowledge and picked the right times to share things with us. If you get the chance, you must do a tour with Sam in Egypt!!
