As soon as I arrived in Cairo, I was met by a friendly and experienced guide who made sure I was safe and comfy the whole time. The luxurious rooms were even better than I had hoped, and the views from the cruise along the Nile were amazing. For me, the best part was going to Abu Simbel, which is a real work of art.
