The driver was great, he picked us up on time and drove us safely everywhere. Our guide Mohammed was great, he tols us a lot of interesting things about history and he always made sure that everything is alright with us. Overall I would recommend going on this trip it's a great value for the price. Thank you 😀!

Travel comfortably, taking into account the characteristics of the Ramadan period and the circumstances of the participating groups. One problem was that when we returned to Cairo, we had no guide and a driver who didn't speak English, so we couldn't make even the slightest request.

The trip was great as we visited a lot of places and it was amazing to know how they discovered it. Our tour guide Mohammed was excellent as his very knowledgeable and can read hieroglyphics. His good at his job and very helpful to us. The trip was worth it. Would recommend!

Pick up on time, Mohamed fantastic guide, interesting places, wonderful the corniche and the sea, very nice city, everything fine!

I really liked the library and the Roman ruins. The catacombs to do but glock. I recommend with the same driver and guide.
