The tour included all relevant tourist attraction in Egypt. Our guides Mansour and Tamir Cairo only were very knowledgeable and made the trip so much more enjoyable. I want to make mention of Ahmed who picked us up at the airport in Cairo, got us to the hotel and made sure, whenever we were in Cairo that we were well taken care of. The Nile cruise was enjoyable. The ship was well maintained and clean, the personnel on board courteous and helpful.
