    4.0 - Good

    Highly recommend this one! Our guide Mo was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. We visited some of the most incredible places on earth and added in some of our own adventures while we were at it. Great value for money! Lots of free time is given but we just wanted to see everything and jumped at most of the activities offered. Egypt on a shoestring, a big thumbs up!

    This trip was amazing - the right amount of historical sightseeings and great cultural experience (especially food!). I loved the meals in families' houses, the temples, the markets and other experiences, such as the hot air balloon and the camel ride. I'd definitely recommend this tour and Egypt. Our CEO, Mudi, ensured we had the time of our life on this trip!
