This was one of our most memorable trip. All the credit goes to Nahla, she is an excellent guide and very passionate about her work. She delivers to her promise and leaves no room for dissatisfaction. The transport she provided was always punctual, clean and new. She has a good grip on the Egyptian history, monuments & artifacts. Nahal has good contacts in Cairo, Luxor and Aswan and can arrange for very nice accommodation in good hotels at very reasonable price. She provided us good rooms in Luxor.
