“Excellent holiday”
- NSW, Australia Oct 2016 4 Helpful Votes

The local tour guides we have for Jordan and Egypt were excellent, especially Mofid of Cairo. His knowledge of Egypt is exceptional and that made a lot of difference to the trip which became very interesting and informative. The tour coach were not very good, as the air conditioning was not working most of the time and the seats not very comfortable.
