In the beginning of the trip we were very confused what is happening due to language barrier, they didn't speak English. When we arrived at the coach and started the trip to Cairo, the tour guide explained what's the plan. The trip was well-organised. Visited the Egyptian museum, the pyramids, the Sphinx, Papyrus museum and Perfume shop. In the Egyptian museum we were rushing a lot and didn't see all the rooms, as well as we didn't have a lot of explanation about the exbitions. Nile cruise was ok (have to pay extra) as takes you to the place for lunch. Our favourite part was the pyramids and the tour with the camels as well as the Papyrus museum. Long trip but very interesting. Need to take snacks and water/drinks as long time to go and come back.

My experience was positive despite the travel hours being at least 8 hours each way. We were out for 26 hours. Attention to the costs required for the entrances to Giza and the Museum, at the same price with other operators they are included. Only the Nile boat ride was paid for separately by all. Do not pay for the Italian language because the guide is included with your booking. Look better than me and you will be even more satisfied with the tour, feasible by bus, from Sharm to Cairo.

Trip was exellent. Everything was fluent. Pick up in time (in the evening we made a call for more details by given number), bus with air conditioning. A lot of time near pyramids and sphinx. Lunch also great (eat whatever you want). The last stop in parfume and cosmetic shop - not necessary in our view but we all know that this is a business :)
