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

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.

What an amazing experiance! The driver and guides did a fantastic job. The hotel and food provided were very good. Only downside, is it was ALOT of time driving. But it was worth it to cover both Luxor and Abu Simbel in two days.

A lovely trip outside Cairo, the swim in the Red Sea was nice and warm. Fares was our guide we couldn’t have asked for better he arrived on time and got us everything we needed including snacks for the beach.

Amir was a fantastic guide! The trip was a great way to get away from the city and see the beauty of the Red Sea! I highly recommend Amir and Ocean Air!
