We enjoyed this trip so much! I would recommend it to anyone thinking about it... before the trip we were a little worried about it, especially because it takes approx. 5 hours one way... but it was perfect... the drivers were responsible, we felt really safe, also in Cairo, where the traffic is really chaotic :) we made enough stops for buying coffee, toilette, etc. The guide in Cairo was perfect, spoke with such enthusiasm, also giving insider tips about life in Egypt, where to buy souvenirs, where to book a camel ride by the Pyramids... Would really recommend the boat drive on the Nile, worth the money... Looking forward of booking also a trip to Luxor when we come back next time... Shukran !
Had a great trip, an extremely long journey there and back. One of the drivers kept falling asleep at the wheel and we had to keep telling him to wake up! The pyramids and Sphinx were the highlight of our holiday and we even got to go inside the smaller one. You get hassled a lot but our guide Hanna was very nice snd told us the tips and tricks of where to buy and how much to pay. Cairo is such a crazy place, so hectic and fast-paced, but Hanna kept a good eye on everyone and made sure we all knew what we were doing. Lunch was very average, a restaurant near the pyramids (Cleopatra). All in all would definitely recommend.
It was a memorable experience! Noha was very patient with me and understand that I have limited time. She was able to make an adjustment and started the tour earlier than usual. She was able to manage the time that we have to cover the entire itinery ( we skipped the bazaar because I had been there through different tour ) and made sure that I arrived at the airport on time for my flight going back. I enjoyed the food in the restaurant we went to before heading to the airport. Noh was also the one who's more excited on taking pictures. I forgot the nme of our driver but he was a soft spoken one and took a good care of us.
The trip is very long, but totally worth it. The pick up time was 1:30 am and and the drive is about 7 hours. Bring water because water is not included and they charge in euros and dollars on the bus. You will need 10€/200 EGP for the boat trip (It is voluntary, you can stay in the bus). There was also a lunch, which was included and contrary to expectations was very good (drinks have to be paid for yourself). The visit of the Bedouins and the manufacture of perfume was completely meaningless, they just wanted to sell. Need more time in the museum and pyramids. You will need tips for the drivers.
One of the best tours I have taken in the world and for the best value. This tour is honestly underpriced. Not only did I have a very friendly tour guide (Maha) with good English that was informative but I had a personal driver the entire day taking us to all of the places. The tour guide was informative, taking pictures all over the place for me and allowing me to make requests throughout the day. She also bought snacks for me throughout the day and the ended with a delicious meal at a restaurant. Simply amazing for the price and the service was great.
