The whole trip was excellent! They organise it very well! Every day we did something new and interesting. The highlight for us was the day in the dessert. Our guides were amazing!! Friendly and polite , always full with energy! the driver, Yosef took us safely from place to place and Tigo , the guide told us so many things about the Egyptian culture, suggested us which food we have to try and always was by our side!! Totally recommend!

The activity schedule is very rich. The driver Hassan is a considerate and good driver who takes great pains to arrange all the activities. The tour guide Moe is very interesting. If you want to know more about the history of Egypt, he can tell you a lot of relevant information. Siwa is worth visiting for three days. It’s too short, four days would be more relaxing

Excellent tour, driver and tour guides were great. Communication could have been slightly better for first day, but overall it was fantastic!

We had à perfect excursion with Ze and Mohamed Atef. They were kind and they wanted to offer to us the perfect excursion. Thanks to them.

The guide was well informed and willing to give us a great experience in Alexandria and El Alamein
