    I just want to thank Tripidays for the amazing time I had on my last Egypt tour. They were such fast responders whenever I needed something and called them, they immediately replied. The sound and light show at Abu Simbel was my favorite part in the trip, it is super interesting, I would recommend it to anyone to attend it while in Egypt.
