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.

Great excursion, The drivers do a remarkable job. For me the ride at 10 euros (supplements) per person on the Nile is not worth it. I would have preferred to stay an hour longer in the Egyptian museum. The guide did not teach me much, the visits are expeditious. Free visit of the pyramids, no or few comments. I will return to Cairo but 3 days minimum.
