This is not a tour I would recommend, I know from my own experience that Explore runs much better tours, eg one to Rajasthan.

The itinerary is haphazard, too many essentials were optional extras, too much was missed out altogether.

Easy and efficient way to see high points in Egypt.

Highlight was valley of the kings and giza plateau. Tips would include being aware of all the extra optional trips and how much they cost as it will minimise the shock when you get there!! There are good value for money but would be nice to know in advance

It was a short trip but it covered a lot of areas of interest.

It was all good. The camel ride into the desert was fun. Valley of the Kings would be a highlight for myself

I had done most before but my partner was blown away by the temples, especially Karnak and Dier el-Madina.

My tip would be to try to overcome the continual demands for backshish even when not appropriate and when the Explore tip kitty would pay.

Mohamed, our tour leader provided outstanding support throughout the trip

I had a great trip don't get me wrong by the scoring, the tour guides knowledge of ancient Egypts history was never ending however I would have enjoyed hearing about the politics, agriculture, etc etc and with that information he was nor forthcoming. Food in the hotels and restaurants was good in some cases very good however beware of the buffet style meals on the boat, we all suffered from food poisoning

It was a great trip minus the Nile Cruise. I was sick from the second day on the boat and I am still recovering. I wasn't able to do some of the temples I would have liked to do because of this. The tour guide was very helpful and knowledgeable in history.

I was also informed that Explore booked other members flights while we had to book our own. This is still unclear.

The Nile Cruise was definitely the highlight and the lack of crowds at sites, although that in itself meant that the hawkers were more persistant, without the tourist buses to chase we did get hassled in a few places, but follow the guides advice to not make eye contact and it was less problem.

Going into the tomb of Rameses V1 and seeing the colours on the hieroglyphics looking so vibrant, and getting some understanding of what the tombs looked like when they were sealed up thousands of years ago. Most sites were virtually deserted so it was easy to take stunning photos and spend lots of time admiring the insides of pyramids and tombs Mohammed clearly enjoyed leading tour groups and sharing his knowledge of Egyptian history, and his enthusiasm and sense of humour brought the subject to life. He showed us hieroglyphics and cartouches which we would never have seen if we were just following a guide book. An excellent tour leader and brilliant guide.
