This morning you have the option to enjoy a early morning Tai Chi class on the deck of the boat. After breakfast you reach Kampong Chhnang, often referred to as Cambodia's 'water world', where houses, businesses and most things in daily life are balanced on stilts protruding from the water. Taking a boat to shore you head for a rural village to see the local Khmer style pottery being produced. Explore the surrounding area of floating villages and wetlands before returning to the boat.

Egypt is a fascinating country and its history was brought alive by Mo.

Myself and Ana enjoyed visiting the different sites and we were able to visit the tomb of Queen Nefartari, which was an added bonus. Abu Simbel blew my mind by its scale.

We both felt that there could've been more time given to those who wanted to explore sites. For example, our visit to Saqqara was limited and there was no opportunity to wander around. Perhaps give those who are more adventurous the chance to explore and rendezvous later?

A little more time in the markets would have been nice as opposed to just shopping at the co-ops. The tour that ended in Marrakesh got this opportunity but those finishing in Casablanca didn't. Our guide was fantastic. He went out of his way to accommodate the needs of the individuals in the group.

The highlights were the Valley of the Kings and scuba diving on the beautiful reefs of Hurghada in the Red Sea. I would highly recommend the King Ramses tour for anyone with a sense of adventure.
