Wonderful day trip despite a long 8 hour (16 hour return) trip from Eilat. I strongly recommend for people who can do it to leave from Sharm El Sheikh as much cheaper and closer! About 10 times cheaper … Very interesting visit to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo (to be recommended first) to be able to enjoy the pyramids in the afternoon … we were lucky enough to come across the guide Nasser who was extremely nice , friendly and beautifully competent. He makes every effort to make you spend an unforgettable moment !!! Visit the pyramids and the camel ride of pure pleasure guaranteed!!! Thanks to Nasser, the organization was perfect and extremely well orchestrated Now I have a high quality friend in Egypt

Communication was great with the tour company the day before and our driver Fares the morning of our excursion. He was early and was a great help explaining the city of Cairo/ Giza as we drove to the 4 wheeling spot . It was really nice being my ourselves and actually getting to ride the quads instead of slowly following one person behind another that a lot of tours are like. The camel ride was nice and long and everyone was great! Would highly recommend Fares as a tour guide and this tour company for your 4 wheeling and camel ride experience in Cairo!

It was amazing, the pyramides are spectacular, majestic, monumental; our guides Kholoud and Mohamed complemented our experience, they both did their best to make us feel comfortable and enjoy our days in Egypt they adapted the tour to our interests and take care of us all the time. They were always so kind-hearted with us so we strongly recommended them for any Spanish speaker guest you might have in future.

We cannot put into words how much we enjoyed the day today. We have not worked through all the points in the description, but have seen and experienced other things that we think are great. Our highlight was the Bedouin-style tea on the dune above the magic lake. In our opinion, the Felounkenfahrt is worth every penny, it's magical. The food was also very authentic and delicious!

Very well organized trip! The driving is a bit long, but once you’re there you forget everything. So much beauty to take in! big thanks to our guide Ahmed who was very kind, knowledgeable, passionate and made sure we enjoyed our day. I highly recommend this tour!
