The price was a little high, but the support from the tour company was good, and the drivers and guides were good people, so I enjoyed it. Although it was a quick trip, we were able to visit most of the major sightseeing spots in southern Egypt in two days, so it is recommended for those who do not have much time.

The tour is worth it, the sites are incredible. Special mention for Mona, my guide on the second day, she speaks Spanish perfectly, she explains everything very well and in a very natural way, she makes you feel like you're with a friend more than with a guide, without a doubt the best guide I've ever had in Egypt. Communication with the tour operator can be improved, the guide on the first day spoke more in Italian than in Spanish and I didn't understand many things. At the hotel breakfast is included but they pick you up at 4:30 so as if you weren't there.

Our driver for both days Youssef was excellent. Our guide on the first day Emad was great. He was a little talkative but you couldn’t help but be caught up in his enthusiasm and obvious passion for his work. He was very knowledgeable. The only real criticism for this tour was the lack of planning on the tour company’s side. On the second day our tour finished at 2:30 but the flight wasn’t booked until 10pm. Got dropped at the airport but we’re told we couldn’t enter until 8pm. Managed to change our flight to 7:45pm for an extra EGP600 and informed Gamal the tour operator of this. He assured us the driver would be waiting for us in Cairo at 9pm when we landed instead of 11 as originally planned. Our flight was late and we got in at 9:30. No driver. Contacted Gamal and got drivers number. Driver had NO IDEA of the time change. Gamal had NOT told him despite 2hrs notice. Gamal tried to blame the driver. It took over an hour for a new driver to come. Got to the hotel at near 12am. Bed end
