Bus trip too long, estimate of 5 hours we went to 8 hours because too many stops during checks, sometimes up to 30-45 minutes ... The guide was super pleasant and very professional, lots of explanations, I recommend. The only downside is the restaurant where we were brought back, a real factory to sell bland food, bordering on the inedible. The guides and drivers of the bus were also great. Anyway, next time, I'll take the plane, more expensive but I think it will be less tiring ...

We were happy with the trip, our guide Moshera was very knowledgeable and kind and took great care of us. As seems to be the case with all similar trips based on reviews, they take you to several other places like the Papyrus gallery and perfume museum which try to get you to spend extra, so be prepared for that. The transportation was in a minivan which was clean, comfortable and air conditioned, and we were able to sleep while on the road.
