What people are saying about Sakkara

Everything was well organized, we were picked up from the hotel around 4:00 am 6:00 a.m. the plane went to Cairo. Since we were only three German speakers we had our guide on site all day and agreed what we wanted to see. He told a lot of interesting things and you could tell that he does the job with heart and soul. He also showed us the Allstadt, apart from tourism. At 6pm the plane went back and at 7.30pm we were back at the hotel. I can only recommend it !!! The guide was called Hossein :-)
