  1. Denish P.

    We joined the 8-Day Egypt Tour that took us to Cairo, Aswan, Abu Simbel, and Luxor, and it was an unforgettable experience. The tour was well-organized and our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. We learned so much about the history and culture of Egypt and got to see some of the most famous ancient sites in the world.

    The hotels we stayed at were comfortable and clean, with great amenities and convenient locations. We especially enjoyed the local food, which was delicious and varied. Our guide took us to some amazing restaurants and street vendors that served traditional Egyptian dishes, and we also had the opportunity to sample some regional specialties.

    One of the highlights of the tour was visiting Abu Simbel, the stunning temple complex that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The architecture and artistry were simply breathtaking, and we felt like we were transported back in time to the ancient Egyptian era.

    Overall, we highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in exploring the wonders of Egypt. The itinerary was well-planned and executed, the accommodations and food were excellent, and our guide was exceptional. We will definitely cherish the memories of this trip for a long time to come.
