The desert itself. Beautiful. Allthough due to rain and cold we didn't take the faluka ride nor a walk, but the guide compensated and took as elsewhere on our request. Very satisfied despite the weather.

Had a great day with Guide: Bestavros. Very knowledgeable and everything was as advertised. Couple of very good photographic areas that are not crowded. And to finish a great day we had a fantastic lunch. History and nature combined in one tour, perfect combination.

What a wonderful little day trip from Cairo with our amazingly accommodating guide Bestavros and our witty driver Sabry. We started off with a tour of remnants of pharaonic temples which had great panoramic views of Fayoum and a quick trip to a small adjacent Museum. We then saw beautiful Lake Qaron and drove to Wady El Rayan where we climes a small mountain for an amazing view of the man made lake, saw a small waterfall and took a cute wooden boat ride. We ended with a delicious traditional meal on the way back. Bestavros was so patient and accommodating and spoke great English. Would highly recommend!

What a wonderful tour- I enjoyed every minute of it. Omar is a great guide, very knowledgeable and friendly! Dia was such a great driver. The first stop was a museum which had interested artifacts that were very well kept. The second stop was the amazing Wadi El-Rayan waterfalls where we had an absolute blast! The boat ride was a gift from heaven as the atmosphere was just amazing. Would definitely recommend!

Honestly the best trip my friends and I had in a while. It was just amazing. Baptismo and Omar are the friendliest people. They made the trip 1,000 times better. They made us do everything we wanted, and they didn’t leave us they accompanied us all the time. The experience was one of a kind really. Whenever any of us needed help they were always there. Thank you Deluxe Travel for the wonderful time.

It was an amazing experience and it wouldn’t have been so if it weren’t for Baptizmo our tour guide or our driver Omar El Rouby. It also wouldn’t have been this good a trip if we had gone to any other travel agency than Deluxe Travels.
