Service from Amr as support was great at both events. Very well organized and tour guide was very knowledgeable and detailed…. The problem is when the bus arrives later because of traffic/checkpoints, the program is a bit tight, but they can't do anything about that. What you could give yourself would be the last point (visit the peninsula), but sitting in the bus or missing out on a nice boat trip everyone has to decide for themselves. Karnak, Hatshepsut and Valley of the Kings are must-sees! Wow!

Just perfect Simply great service from Alaa (Oceanair Travel) Fast and uncomplicated, very serious, punctual and reliable. Communication at any time and quickly, conveniently and easily via whatsapp. Good driver (Mohammed), with new air-conditioned Toyota. Good guide (Mahmoud) Flawless in German and completed the tour with a lot of archaeological knowledge. Price is absolutely fine. Around 200€ for the tour Around 90-100€ for the tickets for the temples There are also little things like approx. 15-20€ for the Nile crossing (optional on site) Thank you very much!! Gladly again.
