El tour lo reserve el dia enterior por la noche y al dia siguiente el guia me estaba esperando en el hotel. Al final fui la unica participante y el tour lo hicieron personalizado para mi sin ningun coste adicional. Me recogieron a las 10 de la manana y a las 17 me trajeron de vuelta.

Je recommande!! Je suis voyageuse solo, mon guide était tellement gentil, m’a fait des photos, m’a raconté l’histoire de l’Égypte, je me suis sentie en sécurité et c’était très conviviale. Je pensais pas faire autant de choses en quelques heures seulement! Je vous conseille de faire le chameau!!! Magnifiques photos à la clé! Faites attention vous serez emmené à certains endroits pour acheter des choses mais vous aurez toujours le choix de refuser! Merci au driver et au guide et à l’organisateur qui m’ont fait vivre un super après-midi! ☀️
