Tour from Hurghada
5 / 5
Antonio Stells , 26 Sep 2022
We used this budget tour to visit the pyramids, sites in Alexandria and Upper Egypt while holidaying in Hurghada. It fit all our requirements while we are still on budget. Very good offer for young adults who eager to discover the country but still don't have enough money to go for luxury.
