Our Guide Hossein was excellent and so passionate about his work and the Egyptian history and culture. He didn’t just show us the beautiful sides of Cairo but the real. It was a pleasure to visit the beautiful city and the pyramids under hosseins guide. I would recommend the tour for everyone.

Cairo by plane was an absolutely brilliant day out! We were in a small group of 6 which made it personal and built around us. Our guide Sarwat, was brilliant and full of information about literally everything! We were able to have free time to roam at each venue after the guide had shown us the important parts which was nice. We had a great meal in a lovely restaurant and our guide arranged for us to have a night boat trip on the Nile while we waited for our flight back to Hurghada. To get the most out of the history side of Egypt you should visit Cairo and the pyramids first and then visit Luxor and the valley of the kings after. All in all it has been wonderful!

Our guided Will was a very nice guide and through the day he told us a lot about the history of Egypt. Next to the planned museum and Piramides stop we also had a few more commercial stops and a Nile river cruise. The flight was very comfortable and we were back in the hotel around 20:30 so we were able to have dinner in our hotel.
