Well organized trip. Only downside 4h30 hours of waiting before flying back in the evening. As a result, the guide organized a visit to an establishment whose purpose was to sell products... For the rest, organization very very well, guide well organized in terms of visits to avoid peak tourist hours. Decent lunch

I can only recommend the day trip to Cairo by plane. Fast transfer, small group, individual time everywhere with agreed meeting points and WITHOUT annoying market visits. Great organization from A to Z, on site, best guide ever, no queues at the museum, no tourist crowds at the pyramids. There was an insider tip from him for everything. Not to forget his unbelievable specialist knowledge and the gift of bringing you closer to the history of this high culture.

Highly recommended tour if you want to see the most important sights in Cairo in one day! We were picked up at 4am and flew to Cairo at 5am. The guide met us and told us a lot about Kauro on the way into town. Since we still had some time, we visited the oldest mosque in Cairo before we drove to the Egyptian Museum. Then we took a boat across the Nile to the restaurant. After lunch we went to Giza to see the pyramids and the Sphinx. It is absolutely worthwhile to ride the camels to the lookout point, where you can see all the pyramids at the same time. In the evening we could enjoy the view of the pyramids on a roof terrace before we went back to the airport. The visits to the papyrus and perfume shop were ok as the people weren't pushy. Great organization and great guide!
