Had a great trip! We were also lucky that we had a private day / tour through extra bookings. Since arriving in Cairo, we have been able to admire the sights with a private guide and private driver. In addition, the contact person of this company Rana also helped us with a last minute quad / buggy excursion on the last day of vacation. This was our best experience with an excursion company in Egypt, definitely worth repeating!

The Emir tour of the German-speaking Randa was perfectly organized, very interesting and entertaining. We recommend
