This was a fantastic trip. We were picked up on time, and the guide and driver were excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending this trip. South Sinai Travel were extremely good, and next time I go to Egypt I want them to take care of all my travel arrangements.
Outstanding! We were provided a personal driver and an English speaking tour guide for the all day excursion. They arrived promptly on time at our hotel and were very friendly and courteous. It is a long drive and they ensured we were comfortable. The guide's narrative about the sites as well as Egypt in general was very informative. The driver was very professional and safe. I would definitely recommend this tour.
This sites are amassing!!! But again you need a good tour guide that is proactive and shows you all the hiding treasures!!!
The young gentleman who was my guide did an excellent job and I would like you to thank him again for me. Abdos and Dendara was a lifetime dream that he helped to fulfill.
Fantastic tour. Both guide and driver made it a wonderful trip Abydos was a dream. Dendara was equally special but as it was a holiday for the local children, we were followed by large numbers of children - most of whom were lovely.
Picked up early in the morning by our guide. Long drive, but beautiful countryside and easy to sleep along the way. Well worth the trip, however, since very different from other sites in Egypt. Abydos is incredibly preserved, great hypostyle columns, and wonderful reliefs. Dendara was being conserved as we arrived, shows great potential, with lots of great areas. Roof view was incredible. After Karnak, Luxor, Valley, Giza, and Sakkara, this helped to round our our understanding and conceptualization of Egypt. Highly recommended.
A long day in the car from Cairo but worth seeing if it is your one and only trip to Egypt.
Worth doing, Dendara and Abydos. A good drive(distance) to and from. As the guide book says these two are in better shape than most temples and offer some fantastic viewing. only thing is you only have so much time at each one because of time constraints. One would like to take time and just look around at these. The guide was knowledgeable and offered good information. The trip to and from also allows one to see parts of rural Egypt you might not see otherwise. Some Egyptian driving at times on the part of the driver. Heads up on that.
