The tour was very well organized and the tour company was always in contact to ensure that we were on the train or with our guide or on the boat. The boat was lovely but we especially enjoyed our brilliant guide who very quickly became a friend of ours. He was knowledgeable, incredibly helpful and treated us like family. The sites we visited were indescribable. We would strongly recommend this tour.

Esta actividad ha sido maravillosa, yo viajo sola y no hablo árabe por lo que la calidad del personal de la agencia de turismo OceanAir (managers, drivers, tours elegidos y viaje en tren nocturno y guias turisticos) y del crucero Le Terrasse (manager y el personal a bordo) han sido fundamentales para que mi experiencia en Egipto haya sido única y excepcionalmente buenísima, sintiéndome cuidada todo el tiempo por alguien. Recomiendo a ojos cerrados este tour!!!
