We were picked up at four in the morning and flew to Cairo at six. First we went to a mosque, then to the Egyptian Museum and with a Nile river trip (€ 12) we went for lunch. Later we went to a papyrus museum and then to the pyramids. In the end, we went to a Bedouin factory with oils & fragrances (you don't have to buy anything if you don't want to). Ahmed guided us through the whole day very well and answered all questions. We flew back to Hurghada at 9:30 p.m. and were back in our hotel at around 11:00 p.m. It was a long but very impressive day.

Everything worked perfectly for us. The trip was well planned from start to finish. Nothing pushy, great guide. I would do it again anytime. Of course there are additional costs here and there (boat trip, camel riding) but it is absolutely worth it. I would do this tour again anytime.

Wonderful day ... Luxor is just wonderful, and our Guide Ahmed (French) was at the top !! We had the private tour just for the two of us, everything was great !!! You have to come back to see other things because a day is not enough ... but even if the day was long we took full eyes
