Our guide Ramzy was very knowledgeable, we learnt a lot about Egyptian history with him. He was always there for us and made sure that we didn’t have any problems. I would totally recommend him to our family and friends. Just be aware that you have to do a lot of tipping, it seems is the way it works here. But apart from that the quality of the tour is excellent.

Very good experience. Zaher was a great tour guide with extensive knowledge and ability to answer any questions. The tour was well organized for the best sights and also has excellent staff and food on board. Would recommend.
