By plane, it's really smart and fast to go to Cairo. I recommend. However, the day is long, so make sure to book a snack in your backpack. Lunch was good at the buffet overlooking the pyramids, but before that it was time to get hungry without a snack. It is also advisable to reserve toilet paper in your backpack as it is often not available in the local toilet. For extra charge, a small tour of the Nile.

Double check on who going to pick you up from Cairo airport, as myself and my son had to wait over an hour to be picked up which is very daunting and scary, our guide Tharwat was amazing, he was fantastic and a massive thank you for taking us around and showing us your beautiful city.

It is a very long day but it is definitely worth it! If you book extra to see mummy's room and entrance to pyramids then make sure to show this to your guide because we got an impression that if we did not show our voucher then they would not know of our extras and guide would carry on with main course of the tour. I would not recommend to buy cammel ride through get your guide app because on app you pay for 15 minutes ride, but in reality there is no such option because all rides are around 30 mins and you will be asked to pay more, therefore it works out that if you buy camel ride in place then it is slightly cheaper. Overal definitely a great trip because, pyramids are truly spectacular! Our tour ended around 17:30 and rest of the time we spent in perfume shop and later on we went on restourant roof top to watch amazing light show projected on to walls of pyramides (for free). You will be very tired after this day so make sure not to book any other activities on following day:)
