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.

Trip was exellent. Everything was fluent. Pick up in time (in the evening we made a call for more details by given number), bus with air conditioning. A lot of time near pyramids and sphinx. Lunch also great (eat whatever you want). The last stop in parfume and cosmetic shop - not necessary in our view but we all know that this is a business :)

Trip a bit tiring, but perfectly organized, the Egyptologist guide was very good, nice hotel with a view of the pyramids the only flaw was the water in the showers with a bad smell. Apart from this I advise everyone to do at least 1 night in Cairo ... Less tiring and you visit more attractions

Accepting in advance the long duration of the journey with a stop halfway through the journey, the activity was unique! Many special stops. The strong point: the Italian guide who was very professional and attentive.

Great trip. Quiet intense, 27 hours from start to finish but wouldn’t highly recommend service. Getting to see the pyramids was incredible
