Summary

Nahla guided our family of 6 around Luxor and Cairo for 5 days and arranged a balloon ride over the Valley of the Kings. Nahla is extremely knowledgeable (degrees in Egyptology), patient (we wandered away sometimes), and kind (brings chicken for the stray dogs). Her prices are very reasonable, and she tries to tune the tour to our individual needs. She found us a fabulous hotel overlooking the Nile, including breakfast, at a very good price. Best memories of our life, because of Nahla!
