This is a fantastic tour. You get to visit pyramids at Giza, Dahshur and Saqqara and understand their connections. It’s a bit of a long day but worth it. The tour guide on the other hand not so great. The information on the tour is very specific: you go to 3 sights to visit pyramids but she kept trying to push other places and making it sound as if they were also tours but they were just shops (makes me wonder if she has a deal with them). If the guide offers to take you to a papyrus institute, aromatic oil shop or a hieroglyph necklace shop, say NO cause they will take time from your visit to one of the sights (it happened to me, I was rushed at one of the pyramids). Other than that, great day - I was the only one that booked the shared tour on that day so in the end I had a private tour.
Klare Empfehlung. Es war zwar wirklich ein langer Tag, aber wir konnten gut im Mini Van schlafen und somit die Zeit in Kairo wirklich genießen. Aufgrund der Epidemielage waren wir fast allein an den Pyramiden! Die Fahrer waren sehr verantwortungsbewusst und der Guide Ahmed einfach toll und sehr mitreißend. Das Mittagessen war sehr basic, aber völlig ausreichend. Wir haben zusätzlich noch eine Bootsfahrt auf dem Nil gemacht (ca. 5 EUR pP extra). Wir waren von 2 Uhr nachts bis 21 Uhr abends unterwegs.
Ahmed was the perfect host during our dinner on the Nile cruise ! He picked us up early because we asked if we could possibly stop somewhere before dinner. He was able to take us to that place then still made it on time for the dinner. He was so kind and gracious. He waited with us while we ate our dinner, helped us take pictures and just made sure we had an overall good time. This was the best experience ever !
Our guides Eslam and Mohammad were great took us off-roading to all different places in the desert, they were very knowledgeable and fun your guides would defiantly recommend you can also see thousands of stars when you sleep in the desert so that alone is worth it When travelling from Cairo to meet your guides defiantly bring some headphones though as it’s a very long drive
I love the time I spent in the Citadel . It’s really refreshing ... Although we started in rain , see places like the catacombs and the theatre , which is not worth the time ! I would suggest pls skip the time there and keep more time to enjoy the beautiful view and every parts in Citadel.
