We saw Cairo in many ways. It's a really interesting city! Traffic was messy, be prepared for that. We and our group were really satisfied with our choice of excursion. We found out about our application time from the hotel the day before. The flights went well with the big planes. Bus transportation was smooth on site. The guide was great.

Whoever visits Cairo must book this tour! The English speaking family got a guide who speaks English, the French one who speaks French and we had one who could speak German! Of course his name was Mohammed like everyone else there! Greetings Habibi! In the evening shortly before the Nile tour, our bus driver suddenly got out and Mohammed was gone, we thought they would let us be robbed there! The bus driver fetched new water and Mohammed simply got a cake out of his own pocket for my, now thanks be to Hitt, ex girlfriend because it was her birthday that day! On the boat on the Nile everyone sang Happy Birthday and the cake was cut! That was the best birthday of my ex, even if she didn't deserve it because, as it turned out later, she had cheated on me more often! And as mentioned, Mohammed did it himself! Therefore absolute recommendation!

an amazing but tiring day! the trip was planned out very well. our tour guide sarwat and driver amir were lovely and gave us a quick breakfast snack after we stopped in the old town. we even fit in a nile boat trip in the morning! thankfully we didn’t stop for too long at the egyptian museum because that was very stressful and busy. we stopped at a papyrus shop and a tutorial on how to make the paper was demonstrated. the buffet at an authentic restaurant was delicious and the pyramids and sphinx was a breathtaking. sawrat was very informative and we learnt a lot today. the excursion was finished with a visit to a perfumery. an unforgettable experience that was comfortable and amazing! However EgyptAir was the worst and we were delayed both outbound and inbound . They had us waiting on a plane for 2 hours for some “missing document” I did contact the Guide company to see if Egypt Air would give any compensation but to none avail. If I were you, don’t fly with Egypt Air
