Excellent tour of the churches and synagogue. My guide was very knowledgeable, professional and also took some excellent photos of me as I was a single traveler. Below are a few of the shots I took while on this tour...

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2017

My tour guide was lovely and knew quite a lot about the area, but i kept being forced by my guide to provide donations to the churches and to tip people who gave us tours around locations although she was the tour guide. This kind of behaviour, really wasn't okay by me. I also didnt receive any water as the inclusions list stated and was also taken to tourist locations like the papyrus place, cotton shop, and perfumery with little choice.

I found it really unfair how i was treated, and wouldnt recommend touring with Viator in Egypt, so i have cancelled my other egypt tours.
