What people are saying about Hurghada Airport
4 stars not 5 stars due to driver was 45mins late to collect me, hence I thought I wasn't going. After that the trip went great. (Please note no liquids over 100ml on flight). On arrival to Cairo I meet our terrific & knowledgable guide Mr Mamdouh. There were just 2 of us on our bus, which made for a very personal experience. We stopped at a mosque to take photos, before heading to the Museum for a guided tour and then given 50mins free time to explore on our own. (Note the Museum is currently moving to another location so is being packed up). Then it was on to a Nile Cruise (extra cost 200LE) & then on to lunch, which was fine. Then we arrived at the Pyramids! We were given time to explore each one before heading to the Sphinx. We were given option of perfumery or shopping mall for food. We asked to be taken somewhere for a drink and we went to a restaurant boat on the Nile and both shared a bottle of wine on the river which was the perfect end to the day in Cairo & nice that we could
The + : A great day, as we've seen astonishing places (Pyramids, Cairo Museum, Sphinx). We had a great guide named Rimo. She's fluent in English and in French, and gave us interesting advices and information, even about avoiding crooks on sites ( you will be purchased for tips all day long) . Don't hesitate to ask if she's available the day you will be visiting ! The - : - Even though the organization as a whole is well-handled (hotel-airport transferts, food, fast entrance on sites…), you will face many waiting times if you do not opt in and pay cash for many optional tours such as Nile Cruise, Camel Ride, Entrance Inside Kheops Pyramid etc... If you've always dreamt of seeing the pyramids, you won't be disappointed, but be aware that it will took you a very long day ==> we had to leave our hotel at 3.00AM and returned back at 10.00 PM … :) Enjoy your trip
up at 03:00. Back at the hotel at 00:30. longest day of my life but the pyramids were fantastic. I don't want to go to the papyrus shop or a perfumery. and this all added to the length of the day. we also spent nearly 3 hours in the airport waiting for our flight. The guide was very good (even if I don't believe that they were tombs). But with a bit more planning and a bit less crap shops that NONE of us wanted to go to this day could have been amazing. It still was great but slightly tainted but being ferried in to shops.
Just a great day, so happy we choose this type of excursion and so lucky to get a guide like Will. We met Will at Cairo and he was so engaging and made us feel welcome. We did everything and more and would absolutely recommend this to anyone who wants a flavour of Cairo and the Pyramids. Cheers Will I will always remember this day for the rest of my life and so happy to meet you. Many thanks for making a great day greater. Simon Karan & Lauramae
The guide was excellent. Will ( his name). Went out of his way to buy some Egyptian snacks for us ( English tour group. As the German guide and tour group were in the same bus did not receive any. Felt like VIP’s. The day went fantastic. Driver of the transport ( his name was Reda ) was an excellent host helping everyone on and off the bus carrying children off/on bus. Asking if everyone was ok or if they needed something.
