I am giving this a 2 out of 5 overall as the experience versus cost was very poor. The only reason it even gets 2 stars is because my driver in Cairo, Mohammed was great - friendly and navigating the traffic in Cairo so well.

The main trip Guide was extremely poor. On day 4, we waited from 9.45am at a random location which was supposed to be some sort of water conservation area. Here he pointed at dirty water and said “water” then told me we would wait here for lunch “maximum 10am” then when I asked him again 45 mins later, apparently “he told me already, we are waiting for my food at 11am”. I have an excellent memory; so yes, these are the facts.

Also the itinerary was not followed. The main Guide did not speak good English, nor was he informative about anything. A number of questions I asked him, he was unable to answer, or mumbled something which didn’t make any sense. It also was the driver who seemed to tell him information regarding stops, but which he didn’t really know much about. We also missed parts; and when questioned I was told Alexander / tombs closed by government due to something “top secret” happening / happened. Nice guy but quite Immature. Hardly did anything except ride along.

What annoyed me the most was 1 night before the end of the tour, he asked me to borrow my phone without explaining the reason. I assumed maybe to see a photo, and then opened up my Tripadvisor app and tried to get me to write a trip advisor review in front of him!

The guide that was sent for the pyramids was nice - Nagwan (if I recall right) and was informative, but she did keep her distance at key moments - e.g. when I was being harassed by touts at the pyramids of Giza. She also introduced me to a perfume shop which I assume meant a kick back to her once I buy something. And the restaurant I was taken to for lunch gave me food poisoning.

Both the guides felt the need to tell me when to tip. I am well-travelled to know when to tip and choose if I actually want to, and this all felt quite frustrating.

The driver of the 4x4 who was also the cook in the desert was great - again knew where he was going and which stops to make.

Overall the food and accommodations organised were not great, so the overall experience alongside the above notes did not make me love the trip or have a desire to return any time soon! The company uses cheap options sadly and tries to make more money from extras. I will avoid the tour company in future and cannot recommend this company. Also, there was just too much waiting around for things to happen. If I pay for a private tour I expect to be in control.
