We set off very early in the morning - a lot earlier than I understood it to be when I booked it. As a consequence we got to Cairo quite early, saw the sights, had lunch and then started to run out of things to do. A later start or an earlier flight back would have been better. The flight was well worth the cost compared to a coach trip. The guide was very good and very accommodating and the trip was very well planned and slick. I felt like a VIP. Cairo is a bit of a dump sorry but a great cultural experience. We had lunch on the Nile too - all part of the trip. It was great to see the sights - I just wish people would stop trying to take money off you all the time. Take plenty of small notes, go inside the Grand Pyramid, and don't be afraid to let the guide know what you are and are not interested in. Also, take the time to get a better understanding of Islam...very interesting. Please go. Take no notice of my rating...I just can't honestly say I absolutely loved it!!
