  • This was the worst tour I ever had in my whole life! The so-called private tour didn't turn out the way I was expecting it to be! I was stuck with a tour guide Yasser and Mido the driver who both did not know anything about Fayoum! It seemed to me that it was their first time going there! They had to stop several times to ask locals for directions and then we totally missed the places which were really important as Fayoum's tourist attraction! The only places we went to were the 'Qaroun temple' and the 'Wadi Al Rayan' which were both mediocre places- nothing spectacular at all! I am very disappointed with how it went that I wasn't even in the mood to go for lunch but they insisted, trying to make up for the blunder of the day.

    I can only hope that the company will take the effort to train their tour guides properly so as no other tourists will experience such misfortune! A total waste of time and money!
