Jodi G  

It was a great trip I loved pretty much everything about it. Egypt is a beautiful place and the whole trip was overall fantastic and gave me a good overview of all the time periods of Egyptian life including the current day. Had a great mix of history and relaxation on the felucca. Would highly recommend this trip!!!!
