This was such a nice adventure

Review for: Egypt in Style

This was such a nice adventure. I went from Cairo/Giza to Alexandria, back to Cairo, then onward to Luxor, then Aswan, then to Abu Simbel, and then back to Cairo. All the Tour Guides + drivers were really nice and friendly, and I was happy to finally go to Egypt because it is my heritage. I got to speak some Arabic which was nice. The Iberotel Luxor Hotel (in Luxor) is a lovely hotel, I stayed there one night before embarking on a Nile cruise. The breakfast was so yummy, and they had an elegant courtyard area outside the restaurant overlooking the scenery. The room was great too. I liked sailing on the Nile, that was really special. The name of the cruise ship was “Esmeralda”. I am glad that there were representatives who helped me check in at the airports within Egypt. THANK YOU - SHOOKRAN!

We booked a seven-week holiday

Review for: Magnificent Nile

We booked a seven-week holiday with Sun Island Tours through Egypt, Italy, Slovenia, Istanbul, Greece, Greek Island and Cyprus and it was fabulous! Everything was perfect - flights, transfers, excursions and we stayed in some excellent, yet not expensive hotels in great locations. Highly recommended. Thanks to Paul and the staff at SIT
