The Only Tour Company To Book With In Egypt!

Review for: Classical Egypt

This tour company made me and my friends first trip to Egypt absolutely incredible! We spent a total of 8 days in Egypt and continued on to Jordan for the rest of our vacation (Which was also booked through Sun Island Tours). From the booking of it, to the knowledgeable Egyptologists, the five star accommodations, the new/air conditioned company vehicles, the scheduling to see many different parts of Egypt/see the most important historical landmarks, and on top of everything all communications with the company were always wit the utmost professionalism. Everyday of the trip was scheduled and planned so we had to worry about nothing. I don’t things could be more seamless! I felt the prices were a value for all that was included. If your going to Egypt- Sun Island Tours is the only company to use!
