    My friend and I greatly enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Sameh, was very knowledgeable. Sameh would take us through the sight explaining different parts of the structure then give us time to explore and look ourselves. There was always more time for things we took an extra interest so we didn't feel rushed. Sameh is a native to Southern Egypt and his knowledge of what felt like everything around us was impressive. We our 2 females traveling solo in Egypt and felt safe and comfortable with this company, no hustle or pressure. If you are looking to tour this area, I would recommend this one. It's private, it will be your party members, guide, and driver. There was much more freedom at the sights as we were not part of a large tour bus being herded like sheep. Sameh also chooses excellent places for lunch, fresh, Egyptian style and authentic. We can't thank him for the experience.

Very Good! The Egyptian Partner company was Ocean Air Travels Egypt. -clear, timely communication -they use nice cars for transport -drivers nice and timely -cruise/tour program was great -guide...we were lucky to get a personality we liked. I observed many others and have had others but for this duration we were very pleased to get one matching our chemistry. -cruise was great; food, service, cabin -cruise food: menus predominantly western style was very good however need a greater percent of Egyptian/ Middle Eastern selections on a daily basis. Demand is evident on the 'Oriental Dinner Night" where everyone is extremely excited about the menu. If say, 30% of the menu items were Egyptian it would benefit guest experience AND lower food cost for the operator. -I am a consultant for Asia-Pacific hospitality based in Tokyo
