We organise small group round trips (12-20 people) to Egypt several times a year.

All the programme (full description below) including mentioned meals and tickets etc. is included in the price and our tours are led by experienced English-speaking guides, so there is no problem for a foreigner to attend to our trips.  We hope you enjoy the trip and Egypt as much as we ourselves do!
