The tour itself was very nice and informative. On the first day, Achmed #1 was our guide for the Egyptian Museum, Pyramids/Sphinx, Papyrus Museum and Nile Cruise (which we didn't think was worth the money). Overall the hotel was OK. On day 2 Ameny was our guide. She explained everything super great about the churches and mosques. It was a lot of fun. Then we went to the bazaar. For the return trip we joined another group and after our very cramped outward journey in a minibus with no legroom, Hanna made sure that we had the back seat in the coach for us on the way back. All in all, highly recommended if you want to experience Cairo. The very strenuous bus ride is also forgotten after one day.

Kudos to the tour guide Hana(n)! Program different than advertised. Saqqara flexibly canceled due to longer stay in Cairo. We would have wished for a longer stay at the pyramids. Unfortunately, as always, one was dragged into a papyrus shop and a perfumery. Unfortunately, the additional sale of a superfluous, overpriced Nile trip is also annoying. The main point of criticism is the late start of the second day of the tour. It only started after breakfast at 10:30 am. There is so much to see in Cairo. A tour start at 08.00 a.m. would be desirable!

Pick up on time, ride in the minibus (narrow and jacket recommended.) The day was well structured and relaxed. Museum, papyrus factory, lunch was okay, just mass processing/canteen flair. Pyramids: first time for your own exploration, then possibility for a panorama tour (exculsive), but it's worth it. "Hotel": Positive to mention the pyramid view from the balcony, but that's it with positive. egypt 4-5*, European more like 1*. No bar to end the day. At least there was an air conditioner in the room that turned itself off in the middle of the night. It's very noisy (just off the highway) Breakfast consists of a plastic box of quality below a hotel packed lunch. 2nd day, picked up on time super great day for three with Hanan, who could report, explain and tell sooooo much. She responded to us individually, we cannot praise her enough. Conclusion: - great tour - definitely two days, because it's just more relaxed. - Definitely choose a small group
