The tour was awesome! Of course you have to get up early (with us it was 4:00 to get from Marsa Alam by private taxi to Hurghada and then take the plane to Cairo), but the day was more than worth it! But our great guide (the BEST!) Gabri also contributed a lot. He was so warm and open-hearted that we hadn't been bored for a minute and had a good day. The whole trip was well planned and worked from the beginning to the end. Of course you would prefer to spend hours at the pyramids and in the museum, but then you should rather stay in Cairo for 2-3 days.

Very nice tour. Staff very friendly but in English instead of German. Were picked up at the hotel on time. 1h quad drive then with the jeep to the Bedouin. There tea break and sightseeing. On to the camel ride where there was again tea and later dinner. Food was delicious and a lot. Water pipes were only available on request. Duration approx. 8 hours with pick-up

A tiring trip due to the temperatures in July, but worth it. Very nice and nice guide-Ramadan- amazing sights. Pickup from hotel, transefre, and flight of plea bases. Overall, I recommend it to everyone. Peter with the family.
