Full description
Enjoy the variety of Egypt and visit Cairo from Hurghada. An air-conditioned car will bring you from your hotel to Hurghada airport where you will board your flight to Cairo. On arrival in the Egyptian capital, an Egyptologist guide will be waiting for your arrival. The journey begins in Giza, where you will visit 3 of Egypt's largest and most famous pyramids. The Great Pyramid is the oldest, and is the last remaining Wonder of the 7 Wonders of the World. The tip of the Pyramid of Khafre is still partially covered with limestone. The Pyramid of Menkaure is surrounded by 3 other, much smaller pyramids. Visit the step pyramids of Sakkara. The necropolis of Sakkara is the next most important burial site of Lower Egypt, after Giza. The largest and most impressive burial site is that of the Pharaoh Djoser, from the 3rd dynasty of the Old Kingdom, around 2650 B.C. He is buried in a famous step pyramid. You will also visit Memphis, the old capital city, where you will see ruins and the giant toppled statue of the Pharaoh Ramses II, as well as the Alabaster Sphinx. In the afternoon you can visit Khan el-Khalili bazaar to go shopping. You'll also get to visit the famous antiques market in Cairo. After an unforgettable day, you will be brought back to the airport in Cairo in the evening. Fly back to Hurghada where you will be transferred back to your hotel having enjoying a great day in the Egyptian capital.

    Overall it was a very nice trip. Unfortunately, the negative was that we were told the day before that the flight would be canceled, which was not true. Then we had to pay another 20 euros despite the actually inclusive transfer. The tour guide was given incorrect information and wanted to do the other Cairo tour with museum with us. Fortunately, we were able to resolve this quickly. The tour guide and the driver were really very good and tried hard to prepare a nice day. The only thing that was annoying was the ever greedy watchdogs at the pyramids.

    Everything was well organized, we were picked up from the hotel around 4:00 am 6:00 a.m. the plane went to Cairo. Since we were only three German speakers we had our guide on site all day and agreed what we wanted to see. He told a lot of interesting things and you could tell that he does the job with heart and soul. He also showed us the Allstadt, apart from tourism. At 6pm the plane went back and at 7.30pm we were back at the hotel. I can only recommend it !!! The guide was called Hossein :-)

    Nice day in Cairo

    For us, all in all a successful trip and a nice day. We had booked a pyramid tour with Giza and Saqqara. Really impressive and absolutely worth seeing. We had a private tour guide and driver. That was practical and pleasant. Both were friendly and the tour guide also spoke good German. He was able to answer all questions well. Concerning. There were misunderstandings regarding the scope of services booked. The tour guide wanted to go to Egypt first. Send museum and recommended that the step pyramids simply be dropped. We disagreed with that. Visiting a papyrus manufactory and a perfume shop was also part of the program and, in my view, superfluous.
