Khaled Al Faramawy, I want to start with him first. a perfect man. From the moment he picked us up in the morning, he tried to provide the best service and help in everything. He helped us a lot with his advice. We especially thank the guide Heba, who helped us all day. Very nice explanation, very good guidance. A very nice lunch, a super delicious mullet and appetizers at a restaurant on the beach, which in our opinion has the best location on the beach. We recommend this tour with everything.

Lovely day with Aiymen. He was a very informative guide. He tailored the tour to our preferences. Muhammad was also an excellent driver. I would suggest maybe adding some time to the tour to visit the beach.

The trip was great. We saw a lot of sites and the guide was very informative and entertaining. The meal was very good. The driver was a very safe driver.

Experienced guide Hussein is a well of knowledge. History transmitted and listened to. Quite a long journey from Cairo and it's worth the detour!

Interesting guided tour with a truly friendly, knowledgeable and engaging guide!
