John and I had a ball - much better than I think we were anticipating.

Hany was excellent on educating us re Egyptology and the big picture as well as current politics.We did things which I suspect were off the normal tourist track - eating with a Nubian household, donkey ride etc.

A holiday for kids and adults that you will never forget

Walead transformed to holiday from good to fantastic.  He anticipated our needs, ensured the logistics went smoothly and was great at communicating and entertaining all the children.  He used them as "actors" to tell the stories encapsulated in the amazing hieroglyphs and in the way made ancient Egypt come alive for all of us.  He has an incredible historical knowledge, passion for his country and a great sense of humour. 

We went on the April 2013 departure and never had any concerns about safety. In fact, it was a great time to visit as there were few crowds and we could enjoy the sights at leisure. We covered a lot of ground and many sights and experiences. There was no way we could have packed-in so much if we'd travelled independently. It was great to let go and have someone else take care of all the logistics! As our children were relatively young we flew to Cairo one day early. This also gave us more time to discover the Pyramids. We booked a guide who took us to Dahshur and Memphis. Going inside the Red Pyramid was incredible. We also followed the advice in other reviews and stayed an extra two nights at Hurghada. This enabled us to relax and experience another day at the reef and Giftun Beach. This was ideal as the conditions were much better on our second trip. The Adventure Company arranged the hotels / flights and Walead booked the additional reef trip for us. He even arranged a surprise birthday cake for my husband and another boy on the trip. Lots of creaking and clanging on the sleeper train kept my husband and I awake, although the kids seemed to sleep through. By swapping with another family, we got interconnecting cabins. At Hurghada we were initially assigned non adjoining rooms but this was corrected straight away and we were given lovely interconnecting rooms in a garden villa. The temperature in Aswan and Luxor was very hot. Sunscreen is essential. We ran out and bought some in Egypt but ended up getting burnt. Make sure you bring a good supply.

Walid was absolutely magnificent

Walid was absolutely magnificent and made the trip a truly unforgettably experience.  His English was excellent and he provided complete clarity on where we had to be when.  His knowledge of the various sites that we visited was second-to-none and he had a very engaging way of explaining the complexities which really brought it all to life particularly for the children (my youngest son in particular cannot stop talking about the different gods and how they were represented in the temple carvings).  He demonstrated incredible patience with the kids and really took the time to answer their questions.

Walid had a real passion for his “job” and put in a huge amount of discretionary effort to ensure the trip went smoothly and that we all got a positive experience.

Cannot sing his praises loudly enough – top guy and will definitely recommend to others.
