It was a more than wonderful trip, and their appointments at all stations of the trip were set and they were always present before the time, and this made me very happy. All those I dealt with on my itinerary were wonderful and cooperative, whether they were drivers or tour guides. I do not forget to mention Sister Silvana, who was responsible for coordinating and following up the stages The course of my trip was professional, elegant and very cooperative, and also her response to my inquiries throughout the day was very fast and adequate, which made me feel safe in the way of her constant interest and classy dealings. I advise and from my experience to deal with them

The trip was great - the temples you visit are so special (especially Abu Simbel). The Nile cruise itself is an experience, and we spent an evening looking at the stars in the clear night sky from the boat deck. It was a real bonus that all entrance feee were included, as it took away the hassle of having to worry about this. Communication on WhatsApp was great, and they even arranged a trip to a Philae temple in Aswan after the formal conclusion of the tour. Would highly recommend
