Superb day, we had chosen a French guide and we came across joujou, a guide who took care of her clients and who knew how to give us free time while being present to give us all the necessary explanations. We are not in a hurry as he said, toy has given us enough time. Woman very invested in these customers and always ready to laugh, she knew how to make the most of our day. Thank you Joujou! Regarding the activity itself is very well organized, no delays. To go to the restaurant (buffet) 3 proposals have been made, either take the car for free, or simply go there by boat (10€ per person) or make a stopover with the boat on a small island where you can see very close to monkeys or even crocodiles… (20€ per person). Only downside of this day the transport is long but is carried out in an air-conditioned mini van in which we are few.

Picked up at 05:00 in front of the hotel and returned late. There is a break stop where you can drink a good coffee and pay with visa. You don't have to take the crossing over the Nile, the interpreter tries to get 15 € instead of 10 for the crossing and they are not worth it. After they have refueled, the van arrives at the restaurant at the same time. So the whole detour story is nonsensical. Gasoline costs 0.50 € so inflation to 15 € too. Half therefore remained on the bus. I paid the 10€ and said it is in the description. You get a tip afterwards instead of forcing it. Make sure you have a lot of change because every historical site you visit they still ask for tips after you have paid the entrance fee. Only to tell their story inside. The places we visited were impressive. So the 4 stars for that.
