El tour lo reserve el dia enterior por la noche y al dia siguiente el guia me estaba esperando en el hotel. Al final fui la unica participante y el tour lo hicieron personalizado para mi sin ningun coste adicional. Me recogieron a las 10 de la manana y a las 17 me trajeron de vuelta.

For some reason, we stopped by some souvenir shops that we didn't ask for on the way. Is this Egyptian hospitality? I choose souvenirs whenever I want, so I don't need to worry about them.
