What people are saying about Hurghada

Excellent day trip such value for money!

Excellent day trip and value for money, a full on itennery but truly making the most of the day. To start the day at 5am our driver was lovely, very helpful and we had plenty of opportunities to stop along the way. On the way back he even treated us all to a sugar cane drink just perfect at the end of a long hot day. On arrival into Luxor we met our guide, was just 3 of us so gave plenty of time to ask questions and be able to listen to all of his information was very informative. Be sure to take plenty of Egyption poinds to valley of the kings was an extra 300 Egyption for a photo pass and although the trip included the cost of visit to 3 tombs for an extra 250 egyption per person you can visit king Tutankhamun tomb so worth it in my opinion. After lunch we also had the option for 200 egyption to enjoy a 45min Nile cruise rather than the bus to the next temple visit again this was a lovely add to the trip. Overall excellent I cant fault it in any way and would highly reccomend

Absolutely amazing - an incredible day!!

What a fantastic day. We knew it was going to be a long one but from the start of the journey we knew we were going to have a good day. Amir our guide was amazing, fantastically knowledgable and made us fall in love with Egypt and its history even more. The sun was brutal so be prepared but Amir was really attentive to this and ensured we constantly had freezing water. The places of history were breathtaking I am so so glad we booked before leaving for home.Amir’s knowledge made the day really enjoyable and it was so powerful to be so close to the ancient artefacts that we are all aware of. The trip down the Nile was incredible and the food in the restaurant lovely. From start to finish we were looked after so well and we couldn’t have wished for any more.Thank you Amir& the driver of the coach for supporting such a long long day ( 16 hours in total) and all the other individuals we came into contact with. We told lots of people on our return to hotel about the day. Thank you

A Long Day Into An Amazing Ancient History

A 5.00am pick-up from the Hotel and an 8.00pm return we were ready for, but the luxury coach would never be any dictionary's definition of 'luxury'; it was nought but a large mini-van, cramped without leg room. The experience was good but uncomfortable enough for my wife to want to cancel our trip to Cairo/Giza but thankfully we didn't . The van stopped several times at watering holes which were welcome not expensive and much needed. The drivers one for the journey and one for the return, were amazing. I thought I had seen madness on the roads, in Italy and Sri Lanka particularly, but Egypt drivers are the most crazy; 4-lane highways made into 6 lanes or more by cars over and under taking within a hairs breadth of each other. The tombs are low and mostly impossible for anyone with disabilities. Tut Anhk Kamun's is most famous, least impressive. The Temple at Karnak took my breath away, wonderful, amazing, fantastic, words that don't come close to describing it. A must-do trip

A nice day, as we've seen the pyramids !

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

From Hurghada: Full-Day Trip to Cairo by Plane Reviewed by Nolwenn, 18/05/2019

Really Fantastic, but a long trip from Hughada!!!

Loved all the sight seeing, real history right there!! I am glad i went with just my husband, as my young kids would have struggled in the heat. I would recommend taking lots of loose change or 5LE & 20LE, toilets are 5LE to use and you are tipping quite alot. Its the culture which is absolutely fine but be prepared. We travelled in a small minibus, slept most of the way on way there, on way back my back was killing me, very tight squeeze. Im glad i went and experienced it, wouldnt recommend the long journey for kids.
