Pickup was right on time. We had a small group, with lovely people. Out guide Ismael was a very friendly guy, who knew a lot about Ancient Egypt and you could tell he loves guiding people and teaching us about his culture. The trip from Hurghada to Cairo about 7 hours including stops, luckily we were able to sleep in the van. The way back was only about 6 hours including a 30 minute break where we could eat at a place with a lot of restaurants. We arrived back at out resort at 20:45z We had a good time in Caïro. We do recommend to not plan anything the day before the trip to Caïro. We had another activity booked the day before and this was delayed so we couldn't really sleep before leaving to Caïro. Thank you for the lovely day!

The trip is really recommended! The pick-up went really well. The explanations in the museum were very interesting and all questions were answered. There were no long waits for the tickets. And the guide communicated everything very clearly. We took some great pictures!

It was all amazing, an experience that you can’t miss out on. We had a great group of people and drivers so that helped with the 7hr journey. One thing to bear in mind is that it’s not a bbq lunch it’s a buffet which for us was the same food as what we had at the hotel.

It was a good experience going to see Cairo, the pyramid experience was the best bit. Big thanks to our tour guide who gave a lot of information about the history and was very fun and friendly

Thanks to our guide Mahmoud who allowed us to understand everything about the history of Cairo and for the visits to the different sites
