Cairo by plane was an absolutely brilliant day out! We were in a small group of 6 which made it personal and built around us. Our guide Sarwat, was brilliant and full of information about literally everything! We were able to have free time to roam at each venue after the guide had shown us the important parts which was nice. We had a great meal in a lovely restaurant and our guide arranged for us to have a night boat trip on the Nile while we waited for our flight back to Hurghada. To get the most out of the history side of Egypt you should visit Cairo and the pyramids first and then visit Luxor and the valley of the kings after. All in all it has been wonderful!

Great and worth seeing tour, not only the obligatory sights (pyramids, Sphinx, Egyptian and Papyrus Museum), but especially Sakkara (there you can climb really deep into the pyramid and see sarcophagi, murals and reliefs) and the Alabaster Mosque (200m high above Cairo ) make the tour so great. The trip to Cairo was in an air-conditioned coach, from Cairo we had our own tour guide for the 2 days, who did a great job. The overnight stay was also very good by Egyptian standards, although the hotel is quite remote but close to the pyramids, which you can also see from there.

It was perfect. very impressed with the whole experience. The tour guide Will was very knowledgeable and stay with us all the time to the end. 10/10 We was first always to every site avoiding all crowds. Highly recommend the tour it was lifetime experience. D&L B

Wonderful day trip to see the main attractions of the Museum, NIle & Pyramids. The guide seemed well versed with history & pointed out the key points well. As always, could do with a little bit more time at each site.

Awesome. Im speechless right now. One of the best trips you can ever had. Had soooo much fun. Views were something out of this world. And guide was so fun to he around. Best agency really recommended
