The guide was very informative, and answered all of our questions, he was also very helpful as I have walking difficulties, he made sure that I was not left behind and offered assistance to me for walking on uneven ground, he was a very nice and pleasant man, I would recommend him to anyone, we could not have wished for a better guide, thank you Ahmed

Overall an awesome experience to see all the core elements of cairo. With a very friendly and helpful tourguide. The pyramids, museum and the sfinx were definitely the highlights and I would recommend anyone to see those with this tour. Here are some notes if you want to do this trip: - This bustrip takes a very long time (at least 8 hours) and has some very long waiting times at checkpoints. We waited nearly 1 hour at one point on the way back - The tours/stopping points are about 45 minutes each which gives you just enough time to see the core things of cairo, but sadly nothing more. If you enjoy strolling through a museum I would recommend going separately. - Could have been only for our bus but, the air-conditioning was very cold and was not able to be turned up which made sleeping in the bus harder.

Es lohnt sich trotz der sehr langen Reise. Im Museum am Morgen hat man nicht gross Zeit, jedoch auch nicht weiter notwendig, da es sehr heiss ist. Die Bootsfahrt auf dem Nil zum Restaurant für 10€ ist schön und auch das Essen ok. Am Nachmittag hat man genügend Zeit bei den Pyramiden und Sphinx und kann alles gut von schönen Spots fotografieren. Die Guides sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Sie geben auch Tipps wie mit den Leuten umzugehen ist und organisieren den Kamelritt etc wenn man möchte. Wenn es einem also wert ist 15h zu reisen um Kairo zu sehen, dann kann ich die Tour nur weiterempfehlen.
