Der Trip war sehr cool. Leider hat uns der Tourguide sehr wenig Zeit im Ägyptischen Museum gegeben (30 Minuten) um uns stattdessen noch zu einer „Beduinenfamilie“ zu bringen die uns 1h lang versucht haben ätherische Öle anzudrehen (Fühlte sich an wie diese Busfahrten früher wo sie einem Matratzen andrehen wollten) weil das Restaurant „noch keinen Platz für uns hatte“. Das hat leider die Erfahrung etwas getrübt. Auch wurde uns erzählt dass man bei den Pyramiden zu diesem Aussichtspunkt nur mit Kamel oder Kutsche hindarf weil „dort Ausgrabungen statt finden und die Regierung das so bestimmt hat“ was leider auch nur gelogen war um uns Geld abzuluchsen für den Kamelritt. Die Erfahrung war toll jedoch hatten diese Lügen des Tourguides einen faden Beigeschmack. Unseren Heimflug hätten wir leider fast versäumt da wir dann auch noch zu einer Papyrusfabrik gebracht wurden und das Timing sehr knapp war und dann noch Stau auf den Straßen war. Hätte man besser planen können.

This was my second time on this trip with GetYourGuide to Cairo. The trip started with the pickup from the hotel at 4:30am and the flight to Cairo at. 6:00am. Once arrived in Cairo we were picked up by our guide Mariam. She presented very nice the history and locations along the way. We stopped at the Cairo Bazaar, then the Egyptian Museum (the old one since the new one is not yet open) we had a nice boat ride (optional), lunch then went to the Giza Piramids where there were optional visits inside the Piramid and a camel ride (optional for an extra cost. Then we moved to the Sphinx where we had 30 minutes to visit and take photos. There were some extra stops at a papyrus store, cotton store and the last stop before the airport at a shopping mall. This time the flight was scheduled quite late at 23:00 and we spent a few hours at the airport. We landed back in Hurghada at midnight in time for the transfer back to the hotel.

The tour guide was amazing. Really informative, friendly and welcoming. Also, the groups where small - one thing I would add (it’s not a problem, but could be a little better) on arrival in Cairo to was clear where to meet our tour guide, but found him just outside the main entrance of the airport. I would 100% recommend this tour to everyone. Thank you.
