Tour was good, however guides were not as good everywhere. We had a guide in Egypt that did not give us any time to buy souvenirs, he was pretty much rushing the whole time and his English was very limited so when we had a question, he ignored us most of the time. Its like he memorized his speech since he was talking non stop.
The tour was including most highlighted places in 3 capitals of ancient civilizations. I was dreaming about Athens, Istanbul and Cairo. It is a perfect trip. Hotels, guides, food, atmosphere were than my expectation.
