  • the experience was amazing and I plan to visit again in a few months with my husband, the information received from Laila our tour guide was amazing.  more »
  • I began a journey through Egypt with my father in the oldest areas, (Saqqara and then Dashur). In this place I was able to enter both pyramids (Red and Romboidal) and enjoy a stripped-down area of the desert with incredible views and a feeling that would not be repeated anywhere else during our trip (really a very high point of our tour). Accompanied by our excellent and very friendly guide Osama Reda Ibrahim we were able to enjoy a very interesting and complete explanation about these amazing monuments, this person is really highly recommended for any Spanish-speaking traveler. It currently has its own Orion Travel agency
