“I enjoyed my Nile Adventure with Timeless. From the pick up to the drop off all was organized and flowed well. I particularly liked Aswan and Hurghada. Ramez was a great Egyptologist and enjoyed his work. I loved the group that I was in and my highlight of the tour was the Felucca minus the Mosquitoes :-) With regards to the lunches, where you have no alternative but to be with the group, prepare about 150 - 200 Egyptian Pounds per meal, you will have like 3 or 4 of this. With regards to the Mandatory Tips and Entrance fees, by our time it was 2,040 Egyptian Pounds. For the guide there is a recommended 70 to 100 Egyptian Pounds per day. If you like a nice cold beer, make sure you enjoy plenty of Egyptian Stella Beer and lots of it. Shopping center at Basma, good prices. When you see something nice during the many stops, please buy, waiting for Khan El Khalili may disappoint you and you may also miss some of the items you saw being sold at a bargain. Just haggle and get the best price for it. Have a positive attitude and brace yourselves for a great time. I would definitely travel with Timeless again and recommend Ramez as your guide”
