What People Are Saying About Hurghada

Mohammed was a great guide. Long trip but worth it.

We really enjoyed the trip and Mohammed was very knowledgeable and informative. He answered any questions we had and also made it fun. It was very organised, we felt safe and looked after. The food was very good and there was plenty for everyone to eat. Allow 25 Egyptian pounds each for a drink with the meal. We chose the mango juice which was lovely and refreshing. We did the optional boat trip for £7.50 each. We were in a group of 7, some English speaking and some German speaking. Each group had it's own guide in the appropriate language. I would recommend this trip to anyone wishing to see Luxor.

The staff, food, accommodations, were once in a lifetime experience. The history of Luxor brings everything to the moment. Kings, power and how the people worshiped in life and death. Egypt is amazing and its people.
