Wonderful day trip despite a long 8 hour (16 hour return) trip from Eilat. I strongly recommend for people who can do it to leave from Sharm El Sheikh as much cheaper and closer! About 10 times cheaper … Very interesting visit to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo (to be recommended first) to be able to enjoy the pyramids in the afternoon … we were lucky enough to come across the guide Nasser who was extremely nice , friendly and beautifully competent. He makes every effort to make you spend an unforgettable moment !!! Visit the pyramids and the camel ride of pure pleasure guaranteed!!! Thanks to Nasser, the organization was perfect and extremely well orchestrated Now I have a high quality friend in Egypt

Honesty I was worried about this trip because I didn’t see any reviews but I had no need to worry. This was such an amazing trip. We had two drivers and a body guard and I felt safe with my younger son the entire time. Since we crossed the boarders at night there was no waiting and things went quick. The tour guide (Henes) was amazing and super knowledgeable on everything. We got to see the Nile river also. I would definitely recommend this tour. The van was comfortable and my son and I both slept most of the way there and most of the way back which made it super nice. We each took a small pillow and blanket which I would recommend doing to make the ride more comfortable. The lunch was at a nice place and there was plenty to eat. The guide even changed money for me so we didn’t waste time going to a bank. It was perfectly executed. We loved every thing about it. We took a camel ride around the pyramids that the guide set up so we didn’t get taken. Book it!! You will not regret it.
