TESTIMONIALS Back to Top
“Touring through Egypt with Explorations of Light was a dream come true! Our first activity in Cairo was a sunset felucca cruise on the Nile. After 20 hours on an airplane, the brisk Nile breeze blew away all of our travel fatigue, leaving the group and myself refreshed and ready to start our Egyptian Adventure. The Pyramids and Sphinx were a long anticipated experience, I was expecting to feel ancient Egyptian wisdom but I was a little disappointed. The constant presence of the Egyptian Guards and endless requests to buy things overshadowed whatever wisdom was there.
