Wonderful day trip despite a long 8 hour (16 hour return) trip from Eilat. I strongly recommend for people who can do it to leave from Sharm El Sheikh as much cheaper and closer! About 10 times cheaper … Very interesting visit to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo (to be recommended first) to be able to enjoy the pyramids in the afternoon … we were lucky enough to come across the guide Nasser who was extremely nice , friendly and beautifully competent. He makes every effort to make you spend an unforgettable moment !!! Visit the pyramids and the camel ride of pure pleasure guaranteed!!! Thanks to Nasser, the organization was perfect and extremely well orchestrated Now I have a high quality friend in Egypt
