“A well organized and enjoyable tour”
Reviewed 18 June 2012

We booked our tour with BESE to avoid having to do a bus tour with our cruise ship. By posting our arrangements on Cruisecritic.com we found several other couples interested in joining us, which decreased the costs further. For a most reasonable cost, we were picked up portside in Port Said, busy for two days, accommodated in the 5 star le Meridian Pyramids ( some in our group upgraded to the Mena House) and delivered to our ship in Alexandria right on schedule. Highlights: seeing Pyramids in Giza, Nile River dinner cruise, Egyptian Museum antiquities and the true Egypt experience in the bazaar. Be prepared for chaotic traffic in Cairo, friendly and hard-working guide and driver, and a punctual schedule of activities. No idiaappointments, and a very interesting experience.

“Cairo Pyramids & Museum trip - much cheaper & BETTER than cruise ship's tour !”
Reviewed 28 April 2012

We visited the Pyramids & Cairo museum with BESE, as part of a small group, when our ship docked at Port Said.
Booking online was easy and emails were answered quickly and professionally. There's nothing to pay until the end of the trip.
We were collected right where the ship docked and the whole day was very well organised. The guide, Ahmed, was excellent - he lead the visits very well, was very helpful & friendly and gave interesting information throughout the day.
For a fraction of the cost of cruise ship's tour, the trip was much more personal and enjoyable. It included a camel ride at the pyramids & lunch at a nice restaurant overlooking the Pyramids.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !
