I actually had to cancel my plane excursion due to an emergency. The guides were able to help reschedule for the next day and did the bus trip. It was rather easy and convenient in the bus. Our guide, Tharwad, met us at our first stop in the museum. From then he was an excellent guide with vast knowledge of all things Egypt. He arranged extra activities in between our tour which were worth the travel. The convenience of the tour was great as it was really hot and the method of transport helped from one thing to another. No one bothered us and any issues were handled immediately. I would do this again. I was very thankful for the experience and thankful for the tour guides for all their kindness and attention.

The tour was great! The tour was interesting and Will the tour guide was fun and informative. He also gave a tour of Cairo en route to our destinations, he’s so friendly we hope to see him again! The additional boat ride across river nile (which you pay extra) was the cherry on top of a hot day. The downfall we would say was the food it wasn’t great and the lunch time was around 12.30pm and our plane back to hurghada was at 10.30pm, so it’s a very big gap (even though Will was nice enough to get us a crisp snack). Also the tour finished quite early hence the extra boat trip we agreed on collectively as a group. Nothing bad to say about Will he helped a lot so thank you! Malik and Fatema

The day was full on, but overall excellent value for money. The airport transfer went smoothly and the guide was ready to greet the party of 8 at the airport. All transport was air conditioned. The guide was a Cairo local man, spoke several languages and was extremely knowledgeable about the sites we visited. I would definitely recommend him. We visited the Museum in the morning and thanks to the expertise of the guide, in two hours saw the highlights (it would take weeks to see all the exhibits properly). We then moved on to the Pyramids. There are a few 'hard sell' stops - but the guide listened to the group and adapted the tour - instead of the visit to the perfume shop we had a Nile cruise. So don't be afraid to ask/tailor your experience on the day. The camel ride around the Pyramids is well worth taking. We also had a whistle stop tour of Cairo Old Market and the buffet/Cairo street food/drinks all good. Not much time for shopping - don't do this trip to shop. It was a great day.
