Great trip! Together with my father we were picked up at 01:30 at the hotel in Marsa Alam. The driver took us neatly and on time to the airport in Hurghada, to fly from there to Cairo. It's a very long day, but it was well worth it! A really great experience to go to the Egyptian museum, admire the Pyramjds of Giza, the Sphinx, and much more! We had a very nice private guide called Khaled, and he has a lot of knowledge. Learned, seen and done a lot. In short; it's a long trip, but if you adjust for it, it's not too bad (and the flight trip is an experience in itself)! Well worth it and wouldn't have missed this for anything. Especially during this covid period we still doubted to go (because you run more risk), but everything is well and neatly arranged. Everything went well and we had no problems. Great experience!

Everything was super organized and our guide Emed was fantastic! It was a very tiring day because we were picked up at 12:55 am (Coraya Beach). Still, it was worth it. What was a pity was that, although we had booked with entrance fees, we had to pay "double" for the pyramids (you have to pay the entrance fee for the whole pyramid complex in addition to the entrance fee for the pyramids on site). Otherwise we can only recommend the tour.

The tour was awesome! Of course you have to get up early (with us it was 4:00 to get from Marsa Alam by private taxi to Hurghada and then take the plane to Cairo), but the day was more than worth it! But our great guide (the BEST!) Gabri also contributed a lot. He was so warm and open-hearted that we hadn't been bored for a minute and had a good day. The whole trip was well planned and worked from the beginning to the end. Of course you would prefer to spend hours at the pyramids and in the museum, but then you should rather stay in Cairo for 2-3 days.
