A tale of two halves. The trip was amazing but the sharing of information was very poor. Let me explain... The actual trip once started was amazing beginning to end. We arrived at Cairo to be met by our guide. There were three families, one French, One German and ourselves, English. We each had a guide to speak our own language. Our guide was amazing, very knowledgeable and the pace was great. We didn't feel rushed at all and were taken to the most interesting points during the trip. We had completed the tour at about 4 but our flight home was not until 10.30 so our guides kindly arranged further activities, a visit to some local shops, a cruise on the Nile and a visit to Cairo market. The negative part was that we had very little communication. We were not informed of collection times until 8.30pm the night before the trip. This spoilt the day before the trip as were thought we had been scammed. It would have been good to know at least the morning before of collection times.

Mohamed fue un excelente guía con nosotros. Tiene una pasión por la cultura de su país y nos lo ha dejado ver con las ganas que dio nuestro Tour! muy recomendado. Su español es muy bueno.

The guide was excellent! His name is Tharwat and I strongly recommend him! Very nice day though the time was so little that we rushed everywhere. But anyway excellent experience!

It was a great trip, very individually tailored to us. Our needs were met at all times, it was incredibly varied and instructive. The driver was also excellent.

We had an AMAZING time. Mostfa Dolce was our guide and he was so good. We had so much fun and definitely rate this as one of our top vacation memories.
