This was the best thing we did in Hurghada. The crew were so knowledgeable and friendly. The pacing of the day is perfect. The boat is beautiful and lunch was delicious.

I enjoyed this day tour very much. My guide Nana was very nice and very knowledgeable, explained everything in detail, showed me the best picture spots and also took pictures for me. It was definitely worth it to see all the archeological sites in one day, and it’s nice to have the van with air conditioning to go from one place to another, because it gets massively warm during the afternoon. The restaurant we had lunch with was also nice, it was nothing special, but it had air conditioning and the food was nice.

The cruise was very nice, we really enjoyed the show and the views from the upper level! What we did not like was the food but we realize this does not have to do with the travel agency. Our tour guide Ahmed did whatever he could to satisfy our needs and checked on us frequently on how we were doing and if we needed anything else. Another thing that we did not like was the change at the time of pick up that happened really last minute. Again we acknowledge that this may not have to do with the travel agency directly but with the communication between the page we made the booking from and the agency.
Start your adventure by meandering through souqs, mosques, and palaces in the capital city of Cairo with a professional photographic guide pointing out insider details and capturing memorable scenes of this fascinating city.
Head off on a half or full day tour to the Salah El Din Citadel monument to medieval warfare, and while there stop at El Sagha and the Khan El Kahlili Bazaar for jewelry, leather goods, and embroidered clothing. Enjoy a Nile Cruise with a delicious dinner aboard the Nile Maxim, one of the top cruising restaurants on the river.
After sunset, view a spectacular sound and light show among the Giza pyramids, and listen to the Sphinx tell stories while enjoying this hauntingly beautiful experience.
Not to be missed is the Pharaonic village, where professional actors bring ancient Egyptian culture back to life. From Cairo, head north on a day trip to Alexandria which includes entry to all archeological sites, including the Pompey's Pillar and the National museum of Alexandria.
From Luxor, step aboard a 5 day cruise to Aswan, witnessing the ancient glory of Egyptian culture along the shores of the Nile river.
