The tour company's staff and drivers were always on time and made sure we were always safe and comfortable.
The sites we visited. The suffi dance show was quite a surprised and delight. We loved it. All hotels were great.
We would arrange drivers for some of the days and skip having a guides for the sites. For us, the most important was having transportation arranged ahead of time to go to the sites we wanted to visit. Having a guide for everyday is overkill and not needed in most places.
We would definitely request that no shopping stops be included. The stores that the guides took you too were all way over priced and pushy. It also felt that the guides were rushing you through some sites to allow more time at these shopping spots. Often the guide recommended we should skip certain sections of a site. It felt as if the guide just wanted to stay the least amount of time at the site. We went back to the pyramids a second time on our own and visited the solar boat display which our guide recommended we skipped the first time because a similar boat was at the Egyptian museum. The one at the pyramid was probably 10 times larger and a must see compared to the one at the museum. Had we not gone back on our own, we would have missed this beautiful boat simply because our guide felt it was not worth it.
We would not let guide arrange certain services like camel rides as they were not honest with the price.
Company was quick to ask for additional fees for simple minor changes to itinerary like dropping us at a different location, even if we agreed to get back to hotel on our own afterward. Having simply a driver for the day would solve this issue.
Generally, guide treated us as if we knew nothing about Egypt, culture and prices. As travelers, we always read a lot of information and carry guide books to know more about sites, culture food and prices.
