What people are saying about Cairo

Super fun, informative and an experience to remember!

We had a really great tour. We were picked up in Safaga at 1 am and arrived in Cairo at around 10.00 am. It was a long travel but everything was smooth running and on schedule. Then we met our English guide outside the museum . She was great. Forgot her name though but we are group “Horus” (July 4,2019). She gave us a lot of information (historical facts) during the museum tour. Then afterwards we went to a tour in the Nile river for about 30-45 mins (paid 10 euros extra) but it was worth it. Then we had lunch in Giza overlooking the pyramids. Afterwards, pyramids tour. We went camel riding (10 euros pp) but with an official camel guy. It was an unforgettable experience...plus the camel guy took great photos and videos of us. Afterwards, we went inside the pyramid! Yes bucket list checked! Then lastly we went to the perfumerie and we got good deals with oils. It was legit! Then we head back to Safaga...

a fascinating full day with all aspects of Cairo covered

We were met at the hotel by our guide "Amina" her english was very good. she was extremely passionate and knowlegeable on all aspects of the tour ( she was actually a teacher of egyptology at the university showing her depth of knowledge) After explanations of each area we were given free time to explore and take photos. The overall tour exceeded 7hrs which made it more enjoyable Dinner was at a local restaurant ( near sphinx) and was very filling. The day was great value for money and I would recommend it to anyone. The only downside was that at times with such a full agenda things appeared hurried - we wouldve liked more time in the museum. If anyone books this tour I hope you get Amina, she was excellent and had a great sense of humour

Pyramids are not to be missed, and this tour hits all the majors!

We of course paid the extra to go in the Great Pryamid, but we even got to go inside the newly opened Bent and Red pyramids (opened July 19)! Barely any tourists in those! These were on the top of our list. Tell the guide you'd like to skip the shopping because you're there to see pyramids. Had we thought to do that earlier, we would have had time to squeeze in one more with hieroglyphics on the inside. Over all, our guide was very knowledgeable and full of spunk. We hit all the pyramids we'd been aiming for, but it would have been more expensive to do it by ourselves from my rough math.

Long day that could have been planned better but still amazing

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.

King Tuts mask, sailed on the Nile and see the Pyramids, outstanding!

It's a long day but that is the nature of the trip. Felt a bit rushed and would have liked more time at the Pyramids but this was due to people being late at every stop. Apart from that i have ticked off numerous things from my bucket list. The Pyramids being the highlight. The tour guide was excellent and extremely helpful throughout. I would reccomend this trip as it is excellent value for money.
