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.

The day can be extremely long because the flight times are very early (5 a.m.) or late (10:40 p.m.). The organizer cannot do anything about that, but this hardly gives any time advantage compared to a bus trip to Cairo. It can hardly be avoided on such tours, but it is annoying that you are smuggled into a shop. They wanted to sell us papyrus pictures and oils. There is no need to buy, but I would have spent the time at the sights. Otherwise, the pyramids and the Sphinx are of course the blast that you have to experience. The Egyptian Museum wasn't bad either, but not essential. Our guide was great, he always explained everything in German and English, his German was almost perfect. Cairo itself is one of the ugliest cities in the world, but you also go there because of the pyramids, and they are absolutely worth it!
