Trip was very well organized, pick up and drop off on time at the hotel. On the previous day before the trip all information was sent via email and WhatsApp. Flight is early in the morning so pick up was at 3:30 am. Bus was waiting in the Cairo airport with the guide with whom first we went to Pyramids, our Russian guide was with very good and definitely with great knowledge. After Pyramids we took a ride to Oil and par-fume manufacturing store what was waste of time and papyrus manufacture what was more interesting but also with an aim to push us buy something. The lunch in restaurant was nice but all beverages you must buy separately. Refreshment included during the ride is small bottle of water what was ok because weather was cool but in hotter day definitely it will not be enough. Next was visit to museum what was very interesting with lot of things to see and thanks to our guide it was very informative. In the end visit to Khan el-Khalili market.

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.

It was a really beautiful day throughout an amazing experience. Everything worked out great and our guide Ramadan was very well read and explained and showed us a lot. He was very polite and nice. And took a lot of time and also helped with the pictures. Top. We can only recommend the excursion.
