excellent tiring day because 12 hours of bus in all. The guide in Cairo was brilliant and spoke French. lunch taken in a self-service and it was very good oriental cuisine. only regret: guide in the bus leaving from hurghada did not speak French (English), too much time wasted (for us anyway) in the papyrus shop and the perfume institute. we would have loved to have had this lost time on the site of the pyramids and the sphinx. Not enough time to come back with souvenirs sold on the site of the pyramids.

The organization was great - we would be picked up on time, our English tour guide was very friendly - a small bus then took us to Cairo. A stopover for coffee and toilet was enough. Water was free. When we arrived at the museum, the German tour guide was waiting for us - we went in together, we were shown the most important things + information about it! Always in a good mood and very interested in making everything understandable - commendable! Then it went to the Nile where you can optionally take a trip for 10 € pp. About 30 minutes - I thought it was great, I would recommend it to everyone. Then it went to lunch - very good buffet, fresh meat from the grill and a view of the pyramid - great! Then it went to the pyramids - information on what to look out for as a tourist. Optional camel ride (or carriage) for 10 € - also cool What you could leave out is the sales show at the end about fragrances and perfumes and investing time at the pyramids. Nevertheless - 5 out of 5

We had an eventful day with many impressions, a great tour guide and a knowledgeable and humorous guide! The pick-up from our hotel went smoothly thanks to the prior arrangement via Whatsapp. We then drove to Cairo for about 7 hours. The journey is strenuous, but thanks to the air-conditioned minibus and the careful drivers, it is pleasant. Our German guide joined us in Cairo. He guided our group (6 people) carefully and variedly through Egyptian history and the most important relics in the Egyptian museum. He also accompanies us to the pyramids and the Sphinx. At the same time he is a great photographer! After a very good lunch (drinks are not included) we set off for Giza. The pyramids and the sphinx were truly impressive. A real must for us! We can also highly recommend the additional camel ride for € 10. 100% recommend!
