Isabella "We were part of an international group and we had a lot of fun meeting new ppl to chat with and made some new friends. Tour, as we were aware, was really busy with a lot of things to see and do, some early wake up were really hard but everything was well organized. I advise to upgrade to the internal flight from luxor to Hurgada and ask how many ppl will take the bus with you from Hurgada to Cairo..."

    They offered a sleeper train option from Cairo to Aswan. When I booked, only the upgrade for the plane came up, but as I wanted the train I decided I would upgrade from the included bus on arrival Cairo as I arrived 4 days prior to the tour start. 2 days... Read more

    I really had a good time! Peter was very nice and always accomodating. We saw great sites, i felt secure the whole time and enjoyed the company of the group. I would have liked to have more local food in the buffets.

    Medhet and Ramaz were excellent guides, I wouldn't want to see Egypt with anyone else. I felt safe the entire time with them and their English was great.
