our local guide (Isra) was fantastic. we feel very lucky to have net Isra who's knowledge of ancient Egypt is at the Museum standard. which is not surprising how she has a lengthy Cairo Museum employment studying her fav subject. she showed us things at the Pyramids never mentioned in any TV documentary. it really was a 5 star service. We where even collected by car from the Hilton hotel, because when we got off the bus from Hurghada, we got a bit lost. Isra and her driver told us to stay at the Hilton and they came straight there and collected us. Cairo is a mad place to drive and tbh I couldn't do it, but we felt very safe with our very experienced driver who also looked after our valuables when we left the vehicle. He also knew a great place for lunch. Isra and the driver work brilliantly together and we can not thank them enough for looking after us all day, and it really was a full, packed day. 5 star guide, driver, excursions. Highly recommend. Thank You Isra and Driver.
My husband and I had an unforgettable experience in the company of our guide and our driver. We got off the bus at a previous station because (the only bad thing .. The bus tickets are printed all in Arabic and we were wrong) everything was resolved by sending WhatsApp notifying our location and the driver arrived by us in about 20 minutes. After our adventures, we met our guide, he made us visit the most important in the Cairo museum. We sail about 30 minutes in Feluca along the Nile River, we go to a local food restaurant (very delicious all) after lunch, we visit the National Institute of Papyrus and conclude by visiting the pyramids. We were lucky to enter 2 newly opened tombs, our guide was amazed and explained a bit of the scriptures carved into the walls. Finally, we were taken to the bus station to take the road to Hurghada and as soon as we arrived, our transfer driver directed us to the hotel. Thank you very much!
The guide Ahmed Amin was very friendly and was able to tell something about everything and answer our questions. He tried to fulfill every wish. Very good German. Gladly again. For that 5 stars. The bus tour from Hurghada to Cairo was a bit chaotic as we were taken to a bus stop, although we assumed we would go straight to Cairo. At the bus stop we were a bit helpless, also because of a lack of language skills. The bus wasn't really luxurious. WLAN did not work, the interior is getting old, not to mention the sanitary facilities. Despite everything, we got there and back well and the staff was friendly and the packed lunches were fine. Fortunately, instead of 18 hours, it was 22 hours from the start (times for bus tickets), which should be mentioned, luckily for us.
The best tour you can get! Although the journey to Cairo from Hurghada was long, it was definitely worth it! We had an amazing time in Cairo! We loved exploring the Giza Pyramids and the Egyptian Museum, as well as sailing the Nile River. All of this could not be possible without our tour guide Islam! He told us so many interesting facts about the Pyramids, and the history of Egypt and its people. And he knew English perfectly, so it was very easy to communicate with him. Highly recommend this tour!
One of my best decisions was to take this trip to explore the city within one day. In spite of a very tiring bus tour (which was the only low point) I met the most amazing guide ever who I could explore Cairo with, and enjoy the sunshine and the rainy hours (unfortunately this is my usual luck) at the same time. Thanks Maged for this amazing experience!
