interesting and nice but super long! just a small pb in the statement of the offer, it is not a minibus that takes you to cairo but a bus! count almost 24 hours from the moment you leave the hotel until your return! otherwise unforgettable moment to visit all the monuments

Departure from Hurghada at 1:00 am to our hotel (Long Beach Resort), arrival at 10:00 am in Cairo. So extremely long journey! 2 activities are offered on site for a supplement of € 10 per person per activity (do not hesitate to negotiate, after refusing one of them we came back to us to offer us a price of € 15 instead of 20 for two ‍♀️). Activities: motorboat ride on the Nile and camel ride around the pyramids of Giza => great for taking pictures without crowds! French guide well at the rendezvous, nice and explanations at the top. Course of the day in 5 stages: -Museum of Cairo - "Museum" of the Papyrus -Meals in a buffet restaurant: drinks not included ⚠ -Pyramids of Giza and sphynx (against the light for us -Perfume shop We left at 5.30pm for a return scheduled at 22:30 maximum. Big mistake we arrived at 00:30. Our bus to the airport was scheduled at 00:00! No need to do the last day so

We enjoyed this trip so much! I would recommend it to anyone thinking about it... before the trip we were a little worried about it, especially because it takes approx. 5 hours one way... but it was perfect... the drivers were responsible, we felt really safe, also in Cairo, where the traffic is really chaotic :) we made enough stops for buying coffee, toilette, etc. The guide in Cairo was perfect, spoke with such enthusiasm, also giving insider tips about life in Egypt, where to buy souvenirs, where to book a camel ride by the Pyramids... Would really recommend the boat drive on the Nile, worth the money... Looking forward of booking also a trip to Luxor when we come back next time... Shukran !
