Comment: Our trip to Egypt was truly amazing in every way. The guides we had in Cairo and everywhere else were amazingly knowledgeable. The drivers were very careful as well- given that I was trying to do this trip with a broken foot.

The place was so beautiful, and filled with the monuments we have been reading about and seeing pictures of for so long, we were very impressed.Particularly, when we saw the pyramids in giza or the temple at Karnak in the day, and went to see the sound and light show in the evening- it was like a beautiful review- I would recommend both shows too- they are very different but awesome.

The days were planned together so we could vary the routine and go see places we were keen to see and spend more time there if we wanted to. I think, we were clear in what we wanted to do, so it was easy, but even then, we got valuable suggestions on additional sights that could be easily combined.

They took us shopping as well, to many places for papyrus, perfumes, carpets, alabaster/ marble stuff and other things. At none of the places were we compelled to look around or
buy things. We got help with bargaining if we needed it- being the people we are, we did not much help there...

If people are not keen to shop they can say so, and the guide will take care not to do any more shops- my husband did, on occasion and we did not have to visit the shops.
What I would really like to recommend was the way that the guide and the tour manager were able to suggest extra trips around our schedule, like going to a sound and light show or a evening boat cruise in Cairo, or even an extra day trip to Alexandria.

What was also very very sweet of them was to take care of my meal preference always- I had to only say it once to the manager when I arranged the trip and, throughout the trip, whether we were in cairo, on the nile cruise, the desert safari or in any hotel, I never had to repeat my instruction again. That felt like they were taking the trouble to take care for me.
Then there was also the way they would take feedback after every day or every outing- and really work on changing something we were not comfortable with.

I am sure we would go back to re-enjoy the wonders of egypt, on the traditional route, and also try to see the rest, like the western desert and so on.
