    Had a really nice time. Especially at Rayan, I could experience real egyptian-life. Full of local people having fun. The road to get there was so beautiful too.

    Our guide Mahmoud Badr was very knowledgeable and super entertaining and made this a great trip. We saw the huge oasis of Fayoum, the waterfalls of el-rayan and had a really fun time sandboarding on the Sahara sand dunes. Our driver Ghazal was also great and drove us safely for hours without any problem.

    Mr Mahmoud Badr was the best guide! His depiction of Egyptian history was incredibly entertaining and educative. He showed us around two oasis and organised a delicious lunch in Tunis.

    It is an enjoyable day to spend a day visiting Qarun Lake and Fayoum oasis. My guide Mahmoud is a very knowledgeable and experienced guide and the driver is Omar who is very kind and helpful throughout the trip.

    Overall, the tour was nice, relaxing and a nice escape from Cairo. My guide Mahmoud Badr and the driver Mahmoud Dia were very nice and attentive. They took pictures, got snacks and made me feel welcome. I liked visiting the Oasis area and driving around Fayoum. I like that it didn't feel rushed or too packed with activities. My favorite part of the tour was the food!

    I LOVED this tour and the tour guide was amazing. Ahmed went above and beyond throughout the entire tour. He was personable and very knowledgeable. We chose to spend 12 hours on this tour by adding a couple of sites to it and his energy stayed high the whole time. The tour itself was also amazing. The archeological site, museum with ancient whale bones, diving over sand dunes, the waterfalland magic lake are definitely wonderful experiences to see. I think this day, although long, was my favorite day on this trip. Thanks to Ahmed and our driver Omar.

    Ahmed! He made the experience so fun. And OMG, if he asks you if you want to do an extra safari to the ancient sea of whales, do it! We had so much fun in the desert, seeing the ancient whale remains, checking out off-the-beaten path ruins, enjoying the waterfalls, birding on a fishing boat and more. He really went above and beyond for us! The driver Omar was a really careful and considerate driver too.

    We had the pleasure of a private tour out of Cairo to the Fayoum Oasis and Waterfalls of Wadi El-Rayan. We were picked up punctually from our hotel and we soon realized we were in excellent hands with Mahmoud Badr, our guide, and our driver, Ramadan. Both gentlemen were professional, cheerful and most accommodating. Mahmoud was a wealth of information about Egypt, its culture and history and included dramatic stories about the ancient gods and historical figures. The drive through the dessert and the beautiful countryside gave us a true picture of Egyptian life out of the city and the views at the end were spectacular. We had a beautiful four course lunch before returning to Cairo at a family run restaurant and hotel and it was delicious! Overall, it was a great day minus the long drive and some road construction. Mahmoud and Ramadan were excellent hosts. Many thanks to both!
