My Travel Experience Review
What travellers love most about this tour is being accompanied by an Egyptologist guide and the deluxe accommodation. The hotels in Cairo and Luxor are 5-star and the Nile cruise ship is also 5-star. Plus there are plenty of meals and sightseeing inclusions. The other bonus, the small group takes a maximum of 12 people, but it will still operate if there are only two travellers so it's a fantastic private tour.
