I had the best day ever! The tour guide was very friendly and kind. The operating tour communicated with me giving clear & important information for the tour. The price is fantastic too because they pick you up from your hotel & and take you to Cairo museum, then to boat trip in the River Nile then free lunch & then final trip to see the pyramids. Then finally they take you back to your hotel. The bus drivers and all the tour guides are very friendly and kind.

We loved the pyramids and the Egyptian Museum in Kairo as well as the Nile cruise, but didn't like the Papyrus "institute" and the parfum "museum". It made the trip too long and it's very sales related...The trip is very long, we came back after 27h. The Bus driver did a great job Overall great value for money, but lots of recovery afterwards needed.
