5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

This day trip was very nice, our guide, Wael , was great!!! he was very friendly, very educated, and was very good planning our trip, noticing if we were tired from the heat, etc... he gave us time to rest, and always asking us if we were doing ok. He made a big difference in our short trip to Egypt, We were very lucky to have him with us!
