We had Nana as our tour guide and hones she made the trip! She had so many interesting facts about everything and she got the job done! Honestly couldn’t ask for a better guide! The trip itself was amazing and we loved every minute of it while we were there the bus journey is long but it is 1000% worth it!

The itinerary is very reasonable, the tour guide is very patient and knowledgeable, but please note that there is really no need to buy souvenirs because it looks like the kind of Yiwu goods (not necessarily from Yiwu, but it must be an assembly line product) that sells for thousands of Egypt Pounds are European tourists who are used to high prices.

The day trip was absolutely amazing. The long drive to Luxor is absolutely worth it. Assem was our tour guide and knows everything about the country and history, he timed everything so that we were always at the sites earliest and still had a quiet time on site to see everything. Simply recommended and very special with Assem. thanks again
