What people are saying about Egyptian Museum of Antiquities

Well, this is the reason I came to Egypt at first place. I took this activity on 13th of June. Picked up on time at 1:35. The bus was really nice and comfortable, with about 15 people onboard. We reached Cairo at 10:00. Went to the Museum first, afterwards had lunch at the restaurant we got to by boat. Cruising the Nile river took great 30 minutes. Then we went to Giza to see the pyramids and ride camels. Returned to Hurghada at exactly 24:00. No water or snacks were provided on the bus, you had to pay for it, so bring some with you. Our guide, lady, was really nice and generous. I met some people during the trip, which I exchanged contacts with, so this day was 10/10.

It was a amazing trip , anyone who has signed up for this should aware that is a long trip a.. trip. Nevertheless it’s all worth it. Drivers are friendly and patient , bus is air conditioned, tour guide is very informative and flexible. They are not forcing you to buy anything just giving you right advices where to buy souvenirs etc. Definitely would recommend
