What people are saying about South Sinai

Beautiful excursion, perfectly organized !! a driver picked us up around one in the morning from the hotel and took us to the bus, where the organizers were waiting for us, the bus was air-conditioned and with bathroom. In the morning we arrived in cairo, and we met our guide who spoke Italian perfectly, (a very kind person with an incredible culture, who accompanied us throughout our stay in cairo). The tour started from the Egyptian museum while the bus waited outside, then the cruise on the Nile and the buffet lunch offered, then pyramids and sphinx, perfect also the organization of the tickets, without waiting and queues, the excursion is over with the papyrus and perfume museum. Departure from cairo around 18.00 and arrive directly at the hotel at 2.00, with a break in a motorway restaurant in the desert to eat something. All perfect!! I highly recommend, but I recommend that you bring some water for the trip!

So yes 6 hours by bus is a lot but at night it passes quickly, but once in front of the pyramids or on the Nile for that matter I recommend the ride you forget all fatigue. Thanks to our guide in the museum thanks also to Mustapha all were helpful. Maybe plan a small snack before leaving to go home because after lunch we were hungry. Top excursion

Trip was exellent. Everything was fluent. Pick up in time (in the evening we made a call for more details by given number), bus with air conditioning. A lot of time near pyramids and sphinx. Lunch also great (eat whatever you want). The last stop in parfume and cosmetic shop - not necessary in our view but we all know that this is a business :)

Good day in Cairo, we do not regret this day at all. Pick-up by bus at night and return at night with guides who do everything to please us. The pyramids and museum visits are magnificent. Great experience to repeat without hesitation

Was an incredible day. Our guide was very accommodating. Everything was top notch.
