Wonderful tour

We had the most fantastic time with our guide Walid who was more than exceptional. he was efficient kind and extremely knowledgeable. Gave us just the right amount of information. The driver was also great - he kept his eye open for us and drive across to meet us after each activity so we didn’t have to walk in the hot sun.
I would highly recommend this tour.

Walid was our tour guide. He and the tour were both overall wonderful. He is knowledgeable, engaging and informative regarding the tour and information. He also is also very warm and kind. I would highly recommend this tour and Walid to anyone, including my own family and friends.

EXCEPTIONAL tour. Walked, our guide, was not only very knowledgeable about the sites, but very kind and funny; he even helped to arrange a private carriage ride around the city for us after the tour. The tombs in the Valley of the Artisans were particularly amazing. Could not recommend this tour more!

Walid was the most knowledgeable guide I had in all of Egypt. Not only was his English excellent, but he is actually a real Egyptologist, unlike many of the fakes and touts that only claim to be. In fact, he has a Master's degree in Heiroglyophics, and can read the inscriptions in the temples like he's reading a magazine. He gave a quick lesson on the basics.
The monuments themselves are very impressive. Medinet Habu has well preserved colour for an external building, and Nefertari's tomb was worth the extra admission price. The worker's tombs were interesting too, and extremely well preserved.
In all, I highly recommend this tour.
Worth the visit!

Moses was by far the best guide we had our entire time in Egypt. These places are less-visited, but they are honestly just as incredible. Thank you for the great trip!
