  • This 2 day tour was well worth the money. Our tour guide, Ragab Elmotgalye was the most knowledgable Egyptologist that I have ever met. He provided in depth explanations on the history of every site we visited and we felt safe the entire time. The tour, the restaurants, and the shops that we visited were all wonderful and Ragab went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that we had a great trip. I highly recommend this tour and Ragab Elmotgalye, our guide/Egyptologist!
