A Recent Review of this tour

Melad was the nicest and most knowledgeable guide. He tailored the day to our interests and made additional suggestions we may want to partake in. He and the driver were very conscious about making sure we had enough to eat and drink throughout the day; we even tried lots of authentic food which was delicious. These two temples were amazing. I'd highly recommend both the tour AND Melad to all who come to Egypt!
