I have been to Egypt many times and this trip Ahmed (Saffy) and Lesley Hammam is the very best of all my trips to date. This couple is a powerhouse of knowledge, experience, enthusiasm and fun. We were a small group of people who had not met before and are now friends with each other and our wonderful guides. Before we ever left home we had input into the itinerary, customising it to include all the highlights for those who had never visited the country before and going off the tourist trail to travel across the desert, stay in an oasis town, visit the ancient sites of Abydos & Amarna, lunch with the Bedouins and swim in a desert lake. All this plus the Pyramids of Giza, Saqqara and Daschur, the Valleys of the Kings, Queens & Nobles plus the Artists Village, the temples of Karnak, Luxor, Kom Ombo, Edfu and Esna, Philae and the magnificent Abu Simbel. We spent 5 glorious days on a Dahabayia sailing the Nile stopping off each day to explore local life, quarries, bird life & lots more. Sunset from a boat on the Nile should be experienced by all at least once! The administration on this tour was top class. Lesley & Saffy ensured we each had a wonderfully memorable holiday. I learned so much about ancient Egypt from them. I cannot even say trip of a lifetime. It was so good I am going back with them this year again. No higher recommendation than that can I give!!
