Overall, I really enjoyed the tour & found Dahab a really good way to finish off a full on week of sightseeing. Adham – I found him really good in the sense of his knowledge of the temples history etc. As far organisation, I feel he could improve here. I missed the first meeting, if it was not for my friends being there i don’t think i would have been as informed know what was happening with the tours. Ramy was really good balance of informative and getting tours organised for us as well as letting us have our own free time.
