    Thank you very much for such an excellent tour, since I had no idea of this beautiful and very important place to the Christians in Egypt. Thanks again for showing us this treasure and also thanks to our guide, who was absolutely solicitous and explained in great detail the places we visited.

    The Kharga oasis tour was very interesting - is the second time i visit it, the first time was for a week. The museum is much more interesting than one would expect and, while I had no enthusiasm for the (Christian), Bagawat tombs , I greatly enjoyed exploring the nearby Ancient Egyptian temple.
