Pick up time was 3:30. We arrived at Cairo at 6 am. Straight from the airport we went to Old Cairo which meant the market was closed!! Seeing the market was a highlight for me therefore I was very disappointed so say the least. When I booked the trip it was an activity planned for the afternoon!!! Our guide Gabri was great, knowledgeable and very friendly and polite. The whole day felt rushed as the flight back was at 5 pm (12 hours rather than 16 described on the trip) personally, I feel that the 'optional' Nile boat trip and the papyrus museum were tourists traps. And even though they say 'optional' you have to go and wait for the others if you don't want to participate. We lost at least 1 hour and a half in both activities which meant we had less time to see the pyramids. I felt I couldn't see the grounds completely which again was one of the highlights. We arrived to the airport just on time to get our flights. Take plenty of water as none was provided in the trip.
This trip was absolutely amazing. We were picked up on time at 3.45 from our hotel and taken to the airport for out flight to Cairo. When we arrived we were greeted by out tour Guide Gabri who was so friendly, was very knowledgeable and was just amazing. It was too early for the pyramids so Gabri took us for a local breakfast and so tea. We then went to the pyramids and had a camel ride. Next we went to the Spinx and then the papayas museum followed by lunch. After lunch we went to a perfume shop and then the museum. We paid extra for an early flight so after we never went to the market but went to the airport. What an amazing day. Thank you Gabri you were fantastic.
Was a bit apprehensive about booking threw the app initially as weve always booked threw a rep for n site. However apart from the outbound flight being delayed 2 hours which was nobodies fault the day ran as smoothly as advertised.. Was picked up from our hotel on time and was greeted by our tour guide angy who was a very knowledgable, helpful and spoke excellent English. This trip was brilliant and she made it all the better by going out of her way to make our day as possible unforgettable as it was. Would highly recommend this trip is a must when travelling to egypt... Thanks again angy
One of the most memorable days of my life! The day started a little rocky by our flight being delayed two hours. Our tour guide made sure we were able to see everything we wanted, even though we were on a condensed time line. She stopped at a roadside stand and got us falafels and Egyptian bread that were both so amazing. Envy, Our tour guide, was warm and welcoming. She made the day so much fun! We absolutely couldn’t have had a better time. I would recommend her to everyone.
We were in a small group which included a Dutch couple, a Swedish couple and an American couple with their child. We were guided by Gabri. Superb, fun and interesting. They provided breakfast and lunch, they kept us away from “hagglers”. But the best part was they didn’t force us to buy extras that we didn’t want. We felt incontrol, which made the trip more enjoyable. The other guests also made the trip, very friendly and very easy to interact with.
