The day tour was one hundred percent worth it. Our guide Rasha was a sweetheart and made our day sweeter with her pleasant and open-minded manner. The drive from Hurghada is of course tough and should not be underestimated. The many security checks, road conditions and also the traffic contribute to this. However, it is worthwhile and you get a lot on offer. Optionally, we could book a boat tour for 10 euros on the Nile through Cairo. (Recommendation on our part) Price-performance ratio is great! Kind regards Dustin & Samantha

Es lohnt sich… trotz der sehr langen Fahrt (Hinweg aufgrund der vielen Sicherheitskontrollen 7,5 Stunden, zurück ging es in knapp 5,5 Stunden) war es ein gelungener Tag. Der Minu-Bus war sehr bequem und die beiden Fahrer sehr nett. Ägyptisches Museum im Schnelldurchlauf, aber das wichtigste hat man gesehen… Mit dem Boot ging es zum Restaurant (Bootstour 10€ separat), das Essen (Buffet) war in Ordnung, danach weiter zu den Pyramiden (dort etwa 1,5 Stunden Aufenthalt). Die deutschsprachige Reiseleitung, die in Kairo dazustieß war ebenfalls sehr freundlich und alle gefangen wurden beantwortet. Für den Preis ein gelungener Tag mit einem fairen Preis- / Leistungsverhältnis. Den letzten Stop im Beduinen-Café hätte man sich für meinen Geschmack schenken können, da es mehr eine Verkaufsshow war als ein Café…

After a very long drive from Hurghada to Cairo, we finally arrived after almost 7 hours. We drive very tired but when we met our nice travel companion Rasa everything was forgotten. She really sweetened our day and was so nice and full of energy that the tiredness was forgotten. In the museum, Rasa told us something about everything and then we took the boat to the restaurant. The cruise was totally cool and I would recommend it to everyone. The food was delicious too. Then we went to Giza to the pyramids and when we got there it was simply indescribable. It was a wonderful day and we would definitely book it again under one condition: that Rasa is our tour guide again. She was so nice and then showed us the right places where we could buy our souvenirs for a fair price. All in all, a wonderful day and anyone who intends to book it: ask for Rasa, she is the best.
