Tour Reviews

nbod78 Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
September 9, 2018

9 days / Cairo, Alexandria, Flight to Luxor, 4-days Nile Cruise to Aswan, Abu Simbel, Cairo

Note: One of the advantages of our tours is that they are completely flexible. This tour isn’t the exact one on our website, it’s customized and arranged according to the customer’s desire. The customer preferred to add Abu Simbel to it as an optional tour he/she wanted to do.
Amazing trip.
Coming from Jeddah, KSA. Met my parents coming from France for those 9 days.
Both guides (Mohamed Beltagui and Mohamed Al Sayed, both French speakers) were great, respectful and knowledgeable. Ahmad Sameer, who organized everything through email and WhatsApp was of great help.
The facilities included in the tour, all the Steigenberger were great as well, especially the Cairo’s hotel.
Price was very reasonable.
Highly recommendable.
