This trip was absolutely amazing. We were picked up on time at 3.45 from our hotel and taken to the airport for out flight to Cairo. When we arrived we were greeted by out tour Guide Gabri who was so friendly, was very knowledgeable and was just amazing. It was too early for the pyramids so Gabri took us for a local breakfast and so tea. We then went to the pyramids and had a camel ride. Next we went to the Spinx and then the papayas museum followed by lunch. After lunch we went to a perfume shop and then the museum. We paid extra for an early flight so after we never went to the market but went to the airport. What an amazing day. Thank you Gabri you were fantastic.

We were in a small group which included a Dutch couple, a Swedish couple and an American couple with their child. We were guided by Gabri. Superb, fun and interesting. They provided breakfast and lunch, they kept us away from “hagglers”. But the best part was they didn’t force us to buy extras that we didn’t want. We felt incontrol, which made the trip more enjoyable. The other guests also made the trip, very friendly and very easy to interact with.
