Private Tour: 8 Days 7 Nights Great Pyramids & Nile Cruise by Train from Cairo
"If it's your dream to see the Pyramids, explore the tombs and ancient temples of the pharaohs, look no further! Eight days and you really will get the opportunity to do it all. Egypt has had a rough couple of years lately for tourism, and what that meant for me at least was I really received first-class service and was incredibly well looked after from start to finish. I was escorted to and from each location, all the details of the trip were handled in advance, and everything ran like clockwork. My guides absolutely made this experience exceptional. They were knowledgeable, loyal, friendly- they each served as my guide/translator/bodyguard and friend- It's difficult to say how long these sites will remain in the incredible condition that they're in, and whether travel may be restricted in the future. So as i have said, if it's your dream to do Egypt, as it was for me... This is the time!"..."
