Traveler Tips

After the museum we headed to the River Nile this is optional on the tour and you didnt have to do the cruise on the Nile if you didnt want to.
What can I say, a very long day but worth it.
The drive to Cairo takes about 6 hours but since it's during the night you can easily catch some shut-eye.

Absolutely wonderful trip, Cairo was different to how I remember it but great to see it again our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about all the sites we visited. Mr Ahmed and his team - Atif, Ma Ma, Captain Sayed made the whole trip brilliant

Cairo Trip

Trip to Cairo was amazing from Hurghada and was well worth the trip. Tour guide was excellent and was very knowledgeable and even helped us be more aware of the locals and made us fell safe. What could be improved is more snacks (savoury and sweet) for the tour. As the tour is nearly 20 hours from pick up to drop off it would be ideal to make sure tourists are satisfied and not hungry. The restaurant part of the tour had very limited vegetarian options.

Amazing experience and tour guide
richardmoore1991rm, Feb 2020
We went on the 12th feb 2020, the pick was spot on timing followed by the 6 hour long drive to Cairo by mini bus, which supplied cushions, water and onboard entertainment. Arrived in Cairo which was hectic but well worth the events to follow. Our tour Guide Mama was everything you would look for in a tour guide. We had no problems with the locals which were trying to haggle is at the pyramids and in the centre of Cairo. The lunch was a buffet next to the river Nile which was amazing. Roughly the whole day was about 21 hours long but well worth it and the views are spectacular. Definitely worth the visit!!

Excellent trip
Sarah_W, Feb 2020
A long day but Definitely worth it! The company was very well organised and the transport was great, brand new van and pillows, much better than another company we went with later in the week. Snacks were provided and we had an excellent guide ‘Mama’. Only negative was an expensive transfer of £25 from Makadi Bay , but overall an excellent trip and would definitely recommend this company .

Best Cairo Experience!
bethneth25, Feb 2020
We highly recommend this tour! We were picked up outside of our hotel at 02:45 in a small van with four other passengers. They provided us with some small snacks and water, and we were on our way to Cairo. The trip is obviously a bit long, so we slept for the beginning, but once it was light out it was very pretty and an enjoyable trip. We started at the Egyptian Museum, which I didn't have any expectations for, but ended up being a great supplement to the trip, as I learned a lot of history I didn't know about and it ended up making the pyramids even greater. Mama was our tour guide in Cairo, and as every other review says, he was amazing! He really treated us like his own family and wanted to make sure we had the best experience possible. After the museum, we paid 200 lira extra ($15?) to take a Nile cruise. They make it seem optional but it's really not, so bring extra money for that. The cruise was nice though (very cold), and it took us to lunch. Lunch was really great, and Mama was great about getting us there before other tourist groups arrived. After that we headed to the pyramids, and of course the best part of the trip. The pyramids were awesome. Mama made sure to get our pictures throughout it, and took us to a great panoramic spot that no other tourist were at. We learned a lot of history and they definitely lived up to the hype. The only downside of the trip was right after the pyramids, you're taken to a shop to have tea and coffee, but really it is someone trying to get you to buy fragrances. If you say you don't want tea or coffee, he makes you get some anyway. And then they make you try fragrances and really pressure you to buy something. One person in our group did but it's uncomfortable when everyone is just sitting there not buying anything. Other than that though, the trip was amazing! It was a great price and I would do it again and again!

Brilliant experience to learn some of Egypt's history
paulalees1, Feb 2020
Brilliant day from start to finish . Mini bus great and the added cushions a delightful extra as was the goodie bag. Our guide mama was so knowledgeable and passionate it made us hungry for more history of Egypt so have booked a tour for luxor. It is a long day but absolutely worth it . A big thank you to the two drivers also who are a marvel at getting through the streets of Cairo safely .
Ashu_S, Jan 2020
Fantastic way to see Cairo in a day, we were picked at 1.30am and returned in our resort at 11pm. We had our 6 year old daughter too. The trip is so worth it if you want to see pyramids and get back to Hurghada. Also, our tour guide was fantastic, his name was Mama. We also felt safe all the time, highly recommend this trip.
