Wir wurden pünktlich von unserem Guide Ahmed in unserer Hotellobby abgeholt. Sofort haben wir uns auf den Weg zu einem kleinen Musem gemacht, in dem wir die Sphinx von Memphis bewundern konnten. Weiter ging es zu der Sakkara Pyramide wo wir uns ein bisschen länger aufgehalten und türkischen Kaffee von unserem Guide Ahmed spendiert bekommen haben. Eine schöne Grabkammer ist dort zu sehen. Das Mittagsbuffet war gut, für jeden etwas dabei. Der Nachmittag gehörte ganz den Pyramiden von Gizeh. Wir hatten im Paket schon den Eintritt in die Pyramide mit gebucht. Die Grabkommer ist nicht sehr aufregend, aber dafür ist der Aufsieg spannend (nichts für Leute mit Platzangst :)) Nach einem Stopp am Aussichtsplateau wo Ahmed coole Fotos von uns gemacht hat sind wir noch zu Sphinx. Der Tag ist super schnell vergangen, war perfekt organisiert und geplant. Ahmed konnte alle unsere Fragen beantworten und hat uns viele Informationen gegeben. Super Ausflug :)
