Magical ! But beware exhausting day. Mega long journey 6 to 7 hours of uncomfortable mini bus. Pause for police checks every 1h30 2h. Tolls... in the evening sagging buttocks stiff neck and broken legs. But once there PHARAAONIC. Too bad this time French guide less involved than in Luxor. This time no free cold drinks (water 0.5cts euros). Very nice museum. Quick visit but we saw the essentials. Cairo, on the other hand, is a very dirty city. Make the trip on the Nile to the level of luxor much more beautiful and cleaner. Restaurant very good meal good but chain. Appointment of all tourists.

The tour is just awesome! Everything was very well organized and we were picked up on time. Although we were a small group, there were several guides for different languages on site. We were able to see everything and the guide informed us very well about everything, gave us tips on what to look out for etc. I recommend everyone to book this tour: it is exhausting, adventurous and worth every penny!
