The only problem is that plane is scheduled at 5 am so we were picked up from our hotel at 3:10 am. We were at Cairo airport at 6 am so our guide had to change the itinerary. We started at old town of Cairo which that early in the morning looks apocalyptic, there are no people, no shops, nothing actualy to do. After a short walk we ended in a coffee shop which was still opening (they prepared for us one table) and waited there for Egyptian museum to open. After that everything was nice. The guide was ok, but his english was not so good. He took us to very expensive shops (parfume manufactory and jewelry store) and we almost missed our plane because of his poor time judgement (did not need to go to the jewerly store) and we ended up stuck in traffic. Big thanks to our driver who managed unpossible and we arrived to the airport on time.

Absolutely worth the money! Pick up from hotel on time, smooth transfer to the airport and quick flight ✈️ Everyone was sleeping during flight. My guide Mohamed waited outside the airport and led me to the mini bus. He was very nice and positive person. Firstly, nice walk through the old market awaiting The Pyramids to open. You don’t have to carry your backpack as our bus was always near. You wait about 5 minutes for guides to collect tickets, no queues. Few hours for pyramids so you have plenty of time to take photos. Our guide was with me and my kids all the time and was sooo kind taking photos, helping to take the best shots! Telling us how to pose to have the best images. After that, we went to perfume shop, had tea ☕️ and a little talk about their natural oils. Then, we went for lunch to a buffet style restaurant which had plenty of space and their food was really good. Next, Egyptian Museum, it is a MUST! Mohamed is really an excellent guide and has a broad knowledge *****

Make sure you have arranged something for breakfast in advance. We didn't have breakfast until 9.30am while we were already up at 2.30am. The transport with guide was reasonable, the driver said nothing and was calling a lot on the way. After the pyramids we got 1 possible to buy a souvenir because others seemed not to be reliable this was a shame. We felt that we were released by the guide at people he knew such as a perfumery to buy things there and a painting shop, this was special. Museum was beautiful but very long-winded, would have preferred to see a piece of the bazaar.
