The trip was pretty quick on schedule. We were also very tired from the bus ride. But it is definitely worth doing it. Lunch was the only disappointing one, it says you eat in an upscale restaurant, which wasn't true. Don't get your hopes up there. The guide was very nice and funny, always joking. You are asked who would like to book an additional Nile trip with the guide, it is really nice and relaxing.

Absolutely fantastic and worth every penny! Best day ever!

From start to finish, the day trip was well organized and i felt taken care of. We had enough time in every location and our tour guide was just, ahhhhhmazing! Mohammed is well versed in the history of each location, and walks you through the era. It is as if you are present! I can’t recommend this enough!

It is from Marsa Alam a very long day but absolutetly worth it! We had a more dan perfect guide! She gave a lot of historical information on the way which i did not know! Also the guides are given on language. Myself and 2 other people had our own guide and a group of mexican people got their own. Location stunning food super and if their was anything you could also ask the guide. Drivers very proffesional and carefull and notice you if you came back from a location, they signaled me because their are a lot of the same busses. Perfect day perfect guide perfect drivers! Only a long drive but i personnally do not care
