What an amazing trip. The journey is gruelling I won't lie but so worth it. Our guide Ahmed was fantastic he absolutely made the trip because he was so passionate and knowledgeable. We visited the museum followed by a boat trip on the Nile and lunch on a Boat Restaurant paid 200LE fir this & visit to Tomb at Giza - money well spent. The buffet lunch was fine and included, you just paid for any drinks. Then back on minivan to Giza - Just Wow, Amazing! Great photos taken by Ahmed too. Then picked up some cheap souvenirs and off to Papyrus Museum to see how made. So glad we did this trip. We all loved it. We were shattered after 20 hour round trip but highlight of our holiday.

In general a very beatiful day! Hasan took us to a spot with a very beautiful scenery by the sea. Sayad was our Photographer and was full of energy and was very creative! Just a warning for people who never driven a quad before, you have to be able to control it! We rode through the dessert and there were a lot of bumpy areas, which is unavoidable. Also you have to be fast! xD I gave up my Quad because I didnt want to lose time, for I was very cautious! Hasan is very young but is very responsible! He always made sure that everybody was fine! Great job!!

Very well organized, with all the highlights included. The two Ahmeds (tour guides) explained everything, gave us enough time at the sights and were ready to cut it short at the two factories (Papyrus and Essential Oils). Both worked very well together with a lot of humor and obvious experience. My 4 kids (19, 17, 13 & 11) and I enjoyed the trip very much and can highly recommend it. A big thanks to the 2 Ahmeds!

Great trip with an experienced crew on a spacious ship. Definitely worth the while and money, my 4 Kids (19, 17, 13 & 11) and I really enjoyed it. We definitely recommend it. Thanks again for the memorable day!

The tour guides were totally awesome Definitely something to experience
