our local guide (Isra) was fantastic. we feel very lucky to have net Isra who's knowledge of ancient Egypt is at the Museum standard. which is not surprising how she has a lengthy Cairo Museum employment studying her fav subject. she showed us things at the Pyramids never mentioned in any TV documentary. it really was a 5 star service. We where even collected by car from the Hilton hotel, because when we got off the bus from Hurghada, we got a bit lost. Isra and her driver told us to stay at the Hilton and they came straight there and collected us. Cairo is a mad place to drive and tbh I couldn't do it, but we felt very safe with our very experienced driver who also looked after our valuables when we left the vehicle. He also knew a great place for lunch. Isra and the driver work brilliantly together and we can not thank them enough for looking after us all day, and it really was a full, packed day. 5 star guide, driver, excursions. Highly recommend. Thank You Isra and Driver.
We enjoyed this trip so much! I would recommend it to anyone thinking about it... before the trip we were a little worried about it, especially because it takes approx. 5 hours one way... but it was perfect... the drivers were responsible, we felt really safe, also in Cairo, where the traffic is really chaotic :) we made enough stops for buying coffee, toilette, etc. The guide in Cairo was perfect, spoke with such enthusiasm, also giving insider tips about life in Egypt, where to buy souvenirs, where to book a camel ride by the Pyramids... Would really recommend the boat drive on the Nile, worth the money... Looking forward of booking also a trip to Luxor when we come back next time... Shukran !
Had a great trip, an extremely long journey there and back. One of the drivers kept falling asleep at the wheel and we had to keep telling him to wake up! The pyramids and Sphinx were the highlight of our holiday and we even got to go inside the smaller one. You get hassled a lot but our guide Hanna was very nice snd told us the tips and tricks of where to buy and how much to pay. Cairo is such a crazy place, so hectic and fast-paced, but Hanna kept a good eye on everyone and made sure we all knew what we were doing. Lunch was very average, a restaurant near the pyramids (Cleopatra). All in all would definitely recommend.
The trip is very long, but totally worth it. The pick up time was 1:30 am and and the drive is about 7 hours. Bring water because water is not included and they charge in euros and dollars on the bus. You will need 10€/200 EGP for the boat trip (It is voluntary, you can stay in the bus). There was also a lunch, which was included and contrary to expectations was very good (drinks have to be paid for yourself). The visit of the Bedouins and the manufacture of perfume was completely meaningless, they just wanted to sell. Need more time in the museum and pyramids. You will need tips for the drivers.
We had a very nice one day trip in Cairo, to visit pyramids, sfing, egyptan museum, sealig on the Nile and nice oil shop where you can buy healing oils and natural parfuems. Everything was perfectly orginased starting from Hurghada to Cairo and back. Also we had opportunity to chouse what we would do by the pyramids. To make beautiful photos we chose riding on a camel and it was fantastic experience. We are very setisfied with this trip and we would recommend it any time.
