We had a group of 35 and were treated to the best trip ever that exceeded my expectations on all accounts. My favorite part was the Nile River cruise from Luxor to Aswan, and the trip to Abu Simbel. Our guide was a wealth of knowledge about Egyptian history, culture, food, Arabic language, and even took us on a bonus excursion to a Nubian village. He was so fun to hang around, and his service was top notch from helping us barter for souvenirs to even planning a surprise birthday celebration for me that fell during the middle of the trip. We always felt safe, he even one time escorted me to the restroom at one temple, to make sure I was hassled at all. This was the trip of a lifetime and I couldn't recommend it enough!!!
