These ancient sites left me absolutely speechless. The ingenuity and dedication of the ancient Egyptian people are astounding.

“disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

The place is over run with people selling cheap souvenirs. You can not even walk around without being harassed.

“Best guide...Mina Wasby”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Mina's expertise on Egyptian history added to the wonders of the Pyramids. The tour of Memphis was amazing. The statue of Ramses was incredible. The tomb we viewed at Sakkara were more meaningful because our guide, Mina Wasby, explained all the symbols.

“Historical”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

No Matter where I turned in Egypt history was alive. I do recommend you to rent a car, driver and get you own certified guide...if you like to know more ...
