My Travel Experience Review
All the boxes are ticked on this amazing small group tour. Escorted by an experienced Egyptologist guide. The hotels in Cairo, Alexandria and Luxor are 5-star. The Nile cruise ship is also 5-star and includes all meals. Plus stay in a 5-star all-inclusive hotel at the Red Sea. 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.
