Sourav & Trina, USA

Hi Dina,

We had a fabulous time in Egypt! Our trip was very well organized and the Sakkara tour representatives/guides especially in Cairo were extremely friendly and helpful. I wish we had some more time to visit Abu Simbel....maybe next time!

Thank you for creating a great itinerary for us - we certainly felt that we made most of our time.

Happy Holidays!
