Everything was well organized, the two drivers took turns regularly, there were enough breaks, we got to Cairo on time and didn't have to wait anywhere because of the prepaid tickets. Our guide Amal was able to explain all the ancient sights and exhibits to us very well. She also told us a lot about modern Egypt. The Nile cruise is a good break between the Egyptian Museum and the pyramids. The food was an extensive buffet for every taste, there were also many vegetarian dishes. Amal took particularly good care of our three children; everyone was very nice everywhere. You should get food packages from the hotel for breakfast. There were several police checks between Hurghada and Cairo, which took some time. Nevertheless, everything went according to plan. We can highly recommend this tour.

Stunning places but I would have liked more time at the sphinx. The guide was knowledgeable but not exhaustive on certain topics, however very kind and helpful in satisfying our requests. We saw everything that was on the program. I appreciated the punctuality in the collection in the morning and appreciated the snack offered. Top!

First of all, a big thank you to Amal our tour guide, she was very great and tried to show us the best of the tour👍🏻 Everything was very nice and a lot of fun. We would definitely book it again next time and recommend Amal.🥰

Everything was excellent, Abdul was a knowledgeable, helpful and fun guide

Thanks to the great Ibrahim, very great tour guide
