    It has always been my dream to visit Egypt. This was a beautiful tour, almost two years later I can’t stop thinking about my time in Egypt, Valley of the Kings, Temple of Kom Ombo, Edfu, Luxor! I was able to add an eighth day to see Abu Simbel (a must)and the Aswan Dam. My trip was in the fall of 2019. I traveled by train and car. I would have loved to travel the Nile by cruise. It was a perfect trip, except one of my hotels was not acceptable. They had dirty linens and no wifi, no phone. I was only there for one night. They told me if I had requested to move to a better hotel they would have made the request immediately. I have no doubt they would have. So don’t be afraid to speak up if things aren’t to your liking. The guides were friendly, professional and exceptional knowledge.I have kept in touch with two of them. I felt safe while in Egypt, safer than in my own country. I recommend all my friends when they visit Egypt to book through Egypt Fun Tours.

It was our pleasure to have you and be part of your dream trip, and thanks for recommending us, we really appreciate it and hope to see you again in Egypt.
      Thanks,
