The trip was great. It started off slightly rocky as we were asked to change day by the operator. This aside it was fairly smooth getting all the details and all the travel arrangements for us from Hurgada to Cairo. The tour guide we had was great, very informative and sharing. Full of local information and knowledge. Personally me and my partner would have liked less time spent taking us on an ‘extra’ Nile trip, and to not have had to do the unrequested Papyrus museum (shop) and perfume (shop) visits or even t have had the half hr lunch in Cairo – but to have spent more time at the actual Pyramids and Sphinx which we only had approx 90 minutes and all just as it was closing and being ejected from the sphinx after only a 5 minute visit. Remove the clearly maoney making parts and we could have doubled the pyramids/sphinx time. The tour of Old Cairo and its market street was great though. So I would say stick to the pyramids/sphinx, old Cairo and museum and ditch the rest.

We had THE BEST time! From start to finish, everything was taken care of! Our guide was wonderful!! It was a small group so we felt like it was a really personable experience. If you’re considering doing this tour, I couldn’t recommend it highly enough! This is our third trip with this company booked whilst we have been in Egypt and it won’t be the last!

Very nice excursion to see the Pyramids and Sphinx. You also stop at a perfumery, a papyrus shop/manufacturer and at the bazaar. You also get a nice overview of the Egyptian Museum (which, however, has far too many exhibits on display for a closer look). The food was okay, and the flight gave us plenty of time to stay a little longer everywhere, the handling here was also great. Small group with less than 10 people and a German tour guide, the traffic in Cairo alone is an experience in itself. The only thing that bothered me a bit, however, was the perfume shop where the only reason for the visit was to get turned on. Furthermore, our group was also a little disturbed by the tour guide's constant phone calls, but it seems to be normal.
