The Winter Palace is an incredible luxury time capsule in the perfect location especially for night walks along the Nile. We had an incredible driver (Mr. Sayed Saber) that took us anywhere we wanted to go each day and he was always ready for us when we were ready to move on, we never had to look for him. Sayed always made us feel so welcomed, comfortable and safe especially at military check points. The Winter Palace made us feel like Pharaoh’s. I attached pictures of Sayed’s info and picture below. Definitely plan to stay at Winter Palace again and have Sayed pick us up to get there.
