Egypt, our Dream more than twenty years
Mar. 2021
We (mine – husband – two daughters) are enjoying the tour with Explore Plus, Our Cairo guide was Mo Sobhi another guide join us all sailing cruise for 4 days besides 2 nights in the Luxor land hotel.

All were very good leading the tour during our trip to Egypt, therefore I recommend Salah. I enjoy his tour and he was very patient very fast responded with clear information.

Everything went on schedule and we didn’t have any delays, We are especially happy with our Nile Cruise guide Rocky as all called him. He was very informative, polite, and considerate.

The only thing is that we could have been informed more about extra tours we could have made during our free time. I realized after my arrival back in Istanbul that I could have seen more especially in Cairo.

Definitely recommend. if you want to visit Egypt choose the tour company explore plus and ask for these guides...
Sorry I forgot to thank the driver Kaled or Khaled he accompanies us all tour even he join us in Luxor and Hurghada

An excellent experience
Apr. 2021
An excellent experience! We started in Cairo and took the Nile cruise from Aswan to Luxor. Our guide was very accommodating and had so much knowledge about the history of Egypt.

We visited all Luxor and Aswan important monuments specially Philae temple of Isis. Huge Karnak temple and amazing Ramses II temple in Abu Simbet

Salah director of Explore Plus Holidays was so helpful, He all time was chatting with us by mails and whatssapp.

Their guides in Cairo and Nile cruise were acknowledge, Mo Sobhi in Cairo and Rocky in ship were providing knowledge and experiences throughout!

Excellent experience
We were very happy with the quality of the
tour—our guides were very knowledgeable, helpful, and supportive. The sites visited were exquisite, especially the less frequented temples such as Abydos. And the 5-star accommodations, especially Achti resort in Luxor, were superb. We would highly recommend this tour package!
