Tee Michelle

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2016

I purchased a voucher from viator and was able to see some of Cairo on my layover in Egypt. I thought I would have 11 hours but I didn and #39;t know that everyone needs a visa to leave the airport and enter the country. They tried to get me to purchase a visa at the bank for 25 dollars and I was being frugal so I said I and #39;ll wait the hour for Egypt Air (the airline I flew in) to provide it for free. Long story short, my flight landed at 1030am and I didn and #39;t leave the airport until 1ish.

My tour guide Michael was waiting for me at the airport. Him and the driver welcomed me to Egypt. I was supposed to do 3 to 5 activities on the list but time didn and #39;t permit that so we did the most important thing....the Great pyramid. They did stop in front of the Nile River for me to take pictures. I saw the Giza, Valley temple and the sphinx. I also went to the bazaar. In between both activities, I got to see the tomb of the royal scriber of the king. There were hieroglyphics and Michael translated for me. For lunch I went to Abu Shakra and even though the package said lunch is included.... I still had to pay for my drink....I guess lunch equates to food only, lol. I went to the Al Houssain mosque in the market area. Unfortunately, I didn and #39;t get to go inside because it was after 5pm. The bazaar had many people trying to sell me items seeing that I was a tourist. I got a couple of things after negotiating their super inflated prices. I understand the hustle, I live in NY and it and #39;s no different than the people on 25th, Fordham Rd, and Flatbush. The last place we went to was the Al Fishaway (sorry if I spelled this incorrectly) coffee shop and had hibiscus juice and smoked cherry sheesha (hookah). The coffee shop was opened in 1710 and has a lot of history. I was taken to the airport after that and boarding my flight to Dubai.

I highly recommend this tour as Michael was an excellent Egyptologist and if you have this tour, ask for him!
