We booked the tour at very short notice because my booking with another provider was canceled. We booked the tour at 8pm and were picked up a few hours later. the transfer was on time, the tour guide was very nice. was a nice trip. Is highly recommended. the journey is very long (8 hours there, 6-7 hours home, but that has nothing to do with the organizer). the communication with the provider is great, unproblematic and ran smoothly.

It was a very nice ride, but I don't recommend riding a camel in the pyramids, I walked and I had a bad conscience because they don't seem to be treated well, be careful with the welfare of the animals, my love! Enjoy! Aaaahhh a strong point is the fabrics of essential oils at the end of the tour, I was addicted to the wonderful smells

Great experience allowing you to cover all the main Cairo's landmark within a day. The tour guide Mena was very punctual and extremely knowledgeable whether on the Egyptology perspective but also Cairo. Our driver Muhammad was also fantastic, well experienced in driving in the Cairo jungle, needless to mention the great Arabic Music.

Great trip. The problem is the length of the journey, starting at 1:00 from the hotel in Hurghada and arriving at 9:30 in Cairo!! Numerous police controls with roadblocks.

Driver Excellent. Made our trip enjoyable and funny
