We are writing this review in order to pay thanks to Br. Ahmed Yousef. He was guide for our family stay in Egypt last weekend. We were initally concern on arranging transportation and selecting sites as it was our first visit. Br. Ahmed made us totally comfortable right after welcoming us on the given time at the hotel. Apart from... More

I went alone as my husband had work to do. He had been previously. My Taxi driver spoke limited English. A man approached us in parking lot he spoke no English. I misunderstood and thought he was trying to sell me a ticket to enter. I said No. As my husband had told me where to buy my ticket. He... More

The Pharaonic Village has a lovely location on its own island in the Nile, this is what it makes so special. There is plenty of parking, a dubious ticketing system and a ferry boat to bring you to the island. Despite it's just 50m to go, the ferry is waiting until full which can take ages. I found this annoying.... More

Not a bad place to get a historical perspective of Egypt's history but I would rather spend my time seeing king tut's mummy rather than a replica of it. It reminded me of a colonial Williamsburg tour that had a quarter of the budget of what they had to work with. We did learn some new things so we are... More

This historic village takes you on a trip through the ages in Egypt. You get on a boat and the boat takes you on a sail through the ages. With real people and props it shows you how bread was made, find and fluids stored and how Egyptians lived through the ages. Once you come off the boat, there is... More
