9-Hour Dolphin Snorkeling Tour from Hurghada Reviewed by JACQUI, 01/11/2018

A fantastic whistle stop tour of Cairo and Giza

A long bus ride from Hurghada to Cairo but really worth it. Our guide, Rushia, was a pure joy. Her knowledgeable and advice was exceptional. Her spoken English and sense of humour made this trip even more enjoyable. The museum is fascinating but with time at a premium our guide lead us to the most interesting and unusual exhibits. The pyramids were breathtaking. Again, our guide gave sound advice on the scams and rip offs that some of the ‘merchants ‘ try. I found a firm but polite “NO, thank you”. Worked well enough. We were quite sad that we didn’t realise when our guide was leaving us because we wanted to give her a very well deserved tip but we missed our opportunity. Should anyone reading this go on this trip and are lucky enough to have Rushia as a guide, perhaps you would be kind enough to tell her Papa Don says “Horus” and Nancy says she misses her. Easy to book this trip on the app. Excellent value for money. Highly recommend.

Hurghada: Full-Day Trip to Cairo and Giza Highlights Reviewed by a GetYourGuide customer, 27/10/2018

Well organized, option with free choice. We are very satisfied!

Very well organized. With the very friendly and experienced tour guide who speaks German and English fluently. There are some options like small nile cruise but you don't have to. There are free cold water in the bus. Tipps: Better to have puli in case it is cold in the bus. Anyway during the tour you can leave your stuff in the bus, so you can bring as much as you want.
