On this excursion you will get to know ancient Egypt. The temples are absolutely worth seeing and few tourists. Our guide Salim and driver Hamadi introduced us to Egyptian history with great knowledge and wit. At the end we were even able to read some hieroglyphs independently. The excursion is highly recommended if you want to get to know the real Egypt.

From the well-organized pick-up, to the parasailing itself, to the return transport, it was a very successful excursion. Unfortunately, the flight was just a little too short, but highly recommended. The view from the top alone was great.

A great tour from start to finish. Everything is well planned and the staff is super nice. Food was tasty too and the boat wasn't as crowded as some others. So highly recommended.

First time diving and I loved it. All the team was very kind and professional. Being a solo girl traveling I can say that I always felt very respected

I was picked up on time, the flight was great too. I can recommend that to everyone.
