    The tour takes you to the must see in Egypt. The pace is a bit too fast. Do not expect to sleep a lot if moving from city to city by bus. The food was great. The entrance fees should have been included in the tour price.

    Tiring yet fun; might want to reconsider the timings of visit to some temples - it would be much appreciated to go when the sun is still up.
