This tour was absolutely superb. The minibus (for our party of 4) was clean, modern and safe; the driver also drove safely and carefully, which admittedly made the drive 8 hours each way but I'd prefer that to some of the kamikaze driving of the local taxi drivers. The guide, Ayman, was friendly and happy to chat about his life and give us a fantastic glimpse of real Egyptian life. The Cairo guide (Nadr?) was knowledgeable and made sure we fully appreciated what we were seeing. Lunch was on a Nile riverboat (moored), and was delicious. Only slight negative would be that we were taken to a perfume shop where we were basically trapped into a hard sell, but we were able to leave without buying anything. Overall a brilliant trip. The drive is long, but you see the real Egypt on the way. Not to be missed.
We enjoyed this excursion alot and our tour guide was very intelligent and friendly. We really had fun with her.
Don't do Cairo by coach. It would be better to pay the extra money and fly. The people we met were fairly nice esp our driver, the minibus we were on broke down and he was so sorry. We had a good day and our tour guide was nice, the main prob was the distance and on way back we had a large coach with just 5 of us in. Unfortunately this meant the bus moved around a LOT and the driver was going way to fast. We left Cairo around 5:30pm and got back to the resort at 1:35am. Needless to say i was very ill. It was the longest bus ride of my life! I remember waking up to squealing brakes as we went so fast through a corner it felt like the bus was going to go over. I felt we were also rushed around, especially after the bus broke down.
