I had the best day ever! The tour guide was very friendly and kind. The operating tour communicated with me giving clear & important information for the tour. The price is fantastic too because they pick you up from your hotel & and take you to Cairo museum, then to boat trip in the River Nile then free lunch & then final trip to see the pyramids. Then finally they take you back to your hotel. The bus drivers and all the tour guides are very friendly and kind.

Everything was great except the long bus trip but it is worth to see Cairo and the pyramids. The German guide knew a lot and was able to explain everything very well and was very funny. I would recommend this trip as everything is very well organized.

What a fabulous (if not too long) day. Saw the pyramids, had boat trip on Nile, camel ride, Egyptian museum, perfume and papyrus factory
