The trip was very well organised and the guide was very clear about where we were going, what we were doing and what times to meet up after exploring during our 'free time'. It was a long journey but we got to see an awful lot. During the trip we got to see about 4 sites and upon returning to the coach we would find bottles of water, crisps, chocolate and cans of soda waiting for us which was a nice touch (and needed). The one regret i have about the trip is that at the valley of the kings you will have access to 3 tombs, you will have to pay extra to visit Tutankhamuns tomb (around £15 english per person) and i wish we had done that, but thats the only regret. Loved everything else and as we neared Luxor the guide told us so much about the way of life out here, we learnt so much. Would definitely recommend this tour!
Our guide Ahmed Abass was wonderful. His knowledge of the ancient Egyptians is exceptional. He was friendly and accommodating, slowing the pace of the tour to suit our needs. He was full of helpful hints and cannot be recommended enough. The cruise was good. Apart from a few minor niggles like a poor aircon and the odd smell of diesel when the boat is still it is a good experience. It does need more sail time as your are sat in Aswan and Luxor for a full day and a half each. The food was good, combining Egyptian and western well. The transport to the sights are all in modern cars.
Fully packed day, really interesting and informative. The guide was very knowledgable and gave good advice. Downside was the journey to and from Luxor as the drivers drove like “bats out of hell” there and back so at times it was a little scary so not for the fainthearted! Worth paying extra 300 Egyptian pounds to get entrance to King Tut’s tomb even if you only have about 1 hr in the Valley of the Kings overall - made it worth the scary travel and not to be missed
You can't understand Egypt if u don't book this experience. Our vacation would have been half without that. The service in the boat was really good and 100% above average of Egypt but it could have been better though. The buffet could be bigger. Especially the desserts were not that good. Egyptologist and transfer were perfect.
From beginning to end everyone was amazing so nice and attentive will definitely recommend this tour 150% very informative in an understanding way and no waste of time Lunch was delicious as well zero complaints very happy with my choice
