What people are saying about Hurghada

Will made it a GREAT Day......thank you and alot of respect

Just a great day, so happy we choose this type of excursion and so lucky to get a guide like Will. We met Will at Cairo and he was so engaging and made us feel welcome. We did everything and more and would absolutely recommend this to anyone who wants a flavour of Cairo and the Pyramids. Cheers Will I will always remember this day for the rest of my life and so happy to meet you. Many thanks for making a great day greater. Simon Karan & Lauramae

Really good but it took us 24 hours not 18 hours

The communication before the trip was a bit laps. I was added to a watsapp group and told by the administrator if i have any problems or questions I should ask... I then asked and never had a response. The taxi was 20 minues late but alas took us to the coach in good time. From then on the trip was floorless. The museum was amazing, and our tour guide was both informative and interesting. She engaged us all and made the whole experience refreshing. Seeing the pyramids was great and we were also advised of the best place to get gifts. The free food offered was good and the last stop to a local flower extract palace was a nice finishing touch. Overall the trip took us 24hours including the taxi ride to and from our hotel in soma bay. But it was totally worth it as we will both remember this trip in many years to come.

Fantastic experience. Everything ran like clockwork.

The guide was excellent. Will ( his name). Went out of his way to buy some Egyptian snacks for us ( English tour group. As the German guide and tour group were in the same bus did not receive any. Felt like VIP’s. The day went fantastic. Driver of the transport ( his name was Reda ) was an excellent host helping everyone on and off the bus carrying children off/on bus. Asking if everyone was ok or if they needed something.

It's a great day out to learn Egyptian History!

Our guide was Wael. He was a lovely and humorous person. Full of energy and caring. There is so much to learn but the weather was hot and was distracted us! Concentration levels were not at point due to the extreme heat which Londoners aren't used to but overall it was a fun day out!

Excellent trip, fantastic value for money

The day was brilliant, Cairo was amazing and our guide Will looked after us so well. I would recommend this trip to anyone wanting to visit Cairo for a day - I’m coming back for 2 weeks though as there’s so much to see! Thank you for a great day.
