Excellent experience! It all started on time. No delays. Proper and safe transportation. All experiences were great. The balloon ride, an experience like no other! Too impressive. Takeoff and landing were very safe. On the visit to the pyramids, our guide patiently explained to us and answered all questions. The bike ride, without waste! More than we expected. We went to some caves, to a museum and visited local artisans and bought some souvenirs. The food, breakfast, was sensational! Everything, absolutely everything, was top notch. Our hosts were great!
