  • Booked this tour before another tour started and my group thoroughly enjoyed this tour with Michael. He was prompt in picking us up from our hotel, started right into the tour, and gave us history and culture throughout the tour. He was willing to answer our questions and was even kind enough to let us obtain picture of the Nile with the city in the background. This tour is perfect with the inclusions, the amount of time, the sites, etc. I'd recommend this trip for sure. My group and I want to thank you Michael for being our great tour guide!
