First of all this trip is pretty long. Because of many check points it takes around 7-8 hours to reach Cairo, but on the way back to Hurgada 5-6 hours. By the end of the day you will be very tired, buuuuut it's worth it! Drivers was very good, we traveled with mini bus and each of us had 2 free seats which makes this long trip pretty comfortable. Guides were awesome (both Ahmed), very funy, they both have great sense of humor and with them both the time has flown away so quickly. Everything was very well organized, I've enjoyed a lot (expect perfume shop, which in my opinion wasn't very interesting, instead of this I wish we went to the most famous mosque in Cairo). Oh yeah, and both Ahmed are a very good photographers!! They make such a great pics like a professionals!

Very well organized, with all the highlights included. The two Ahmeds (tour guides) explained everything, gave us enough time at the sights and were ready to cut it short at the two factories (Papyrus and Essential Oils). Both worked very well together with a lot of humor and obvious experience. My 4 kids (19, 17, 13 & 11) and I enjoyed the trip very much and can highly recommend it. A big thanks to the 2 Ahmeds!

What an amazing trip. The journey is gruelling I won't lie but so worth it. Our guide Ahmed was fantastic he absolutely made the trip because he was so passionate and knowledgeable. We visited the museum followed by a boat trip on the Nile and lunch on a Boat Restaurant paid 200LE fir this & visit to Tomb at Giza - money well spent. The buffet lunch was fine and included, you just paid for any drinks. Then back on minivan to Giza - Just Wow, Amazing! Great photos taken by Ahmed too. Then picked up some cheap souvenirs and off to Papyrus Museum to see how made. So glad we did this trip. We all loved it. We were shattered after 20 hour round trip but highlight of our holiday.
