Fabulous Egypt Tour
We were a party of 4 (2 couples )who travelled to Egypt in March 2019.
Our trip was organized by Julie at Bench Travel.Julie had organized our trip to South Africa & Botswana ( for 8 people) in 2018 & I was most confident in booking through her once again.We began our trip in Cairo , staying at Le Meridien Pyramids Hotel. Great position overlooking the pyramids , very clean , lovely breakfast buffet & helpful staff .Our private guide & driver picked us up promptly the following 2 mornings for our day tours . They were helpful , friendly & knowledgeable.
The next four days were spent on a 4 night Nile Cruise on The Sonesta Star Goddess cruise ship , in a Beethoven Suite.
Everything about this cruise was amazing, from the crew ,the service , the wonderful variety & presentation of the meals & just sitting on our private balconies or on the lounges on the upper deck watching the Egyptian way of life, on the banks & on the river.
All transfers throughout the trip were on time & everything went to plan.
We would all definitely recommend booking through Bench travel for their knowledge & efficiency .
