After a first stay in Egypt with Amro and Terra Trips in 2012. As a result, we went back there for 15 days at the beginning of April 2016. We were 4 and Amro having, at our request, opened the Egypt Tourism circuit to other people, we left at 6 ;
In summary, excellent services, Amro went to great lengths to book us correct hotels as well as an excellent boat;
We have built with him a tailor-made circuit. In addition, visits to must-see sites. But also many magnificent sites, unknown, and almost empty of tourists!
We started with 2 days in Cairo, to visit the beautiful site of Dahshour, Sakkarah, Giza, Cairo Museum. Also, El Hakem and El Azhar mosques, visit to Islamic Cairo. Then plane to Luxor where we visited Karnak and unknown temples, visit the Luxor museum, then the moonlight temple.
Then after a sunrise over the temple of Hatshepsut from a hot air balloon - unforgettable experience. Many temples and tombs. First in the valley of kings, craftsmen, nobles, the unknown site of El Hoka.
Then, detour to the very beautiful temple of Dendera. Before leaving by boat to Asswan, in 3 days, and the classic stops Edfu, Kom Ombo, and on Lake Nasser Kalabcha, the Nubian Museum. Felucca stroll to the tombs of the nobles.
On the return to Cairo, visit the very beautiful mosques of Sultan Hassan, El Refae, the ragpickers and Coptic quarter. Walk in El Azar Park, where we were the only Europeans among the young people of Cairo and the good-natured crowd.
To finish El Fayoum and the pottery village of Tunis, before Lake Qarun.
At no time did we feel unsafe. (Special presence, for 2 days, of a fairly discreet plainclothes policeman); the only negative point being the traffic jams in Cairo; Amro manages his agency with a master hand, constantly ensuring that the circuit goes as well as possible, listening to us to modify it or add visits (such as the citadel and the Great Mosque of Mohamed Ali; Finally, a very special thank you for Walid who guided us in Cairo with competence, humor, and helped us a lot with the daily procedures.
