The drive to the Bedouin village takes quite a long time. But the atmosphere with eight people in the jeep was great and it didn't seem that long. The music was turned up, singing was done and we drove through the hilly desert. It was an experience and everyone had fun. There were frequent breaks for camel rides, at no extra charge, or photo spots with the jeep. The village was very beautiful. There was information about life in the desert and we went up a mountain to watch the sunset. Amazing! Afterwards we had food and observed the starry sky. We didn't see the moon and could see the stars very well. Our guide Nanu made the trip more enjoyable with his nice and funny manner. All in all a very nice experience and the guides were very funny and nice. You could buy photos for 10 euros, which is absolutely OK. But it wasn't a problem if you didn't want any. Highly recommended!

It was a great trip, we saw a lot in a limited time. The guide and driver were very friendly and enthusiastic, so I would really recommend the trip. Only thing is to take along a lot of small change as you will need to tip a lot (but it is all worth it).

What an amazing day. Very long, very hot but worth it. The tour guide Hussain was really knowledgeable about all the temples we visited. Lovely little trip on the Nile and food at an Egyptian restaurant was great. Highly recommend this tour

We had a fantastic visit to Philae Temple. The site is incredible and our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Very much recommend to visit and to use this tour agency

Good transportation service, was there waiting for us at this airport and drove us safely to our hotel
