What people are saying about Giza

After a very long drive from Hurghada to Cairo, we finally arrived after almost 7 hours. We drive very tired but when we met our nice travel companion Rasa everything was forgotten. She really sweetened our day and was so nice and full of energy that the tiredness was forgotten. In the museum, Rasa told us something about everything and then we took the boat to the restaurant. The cruise was totally cool and I would recommend it to everyone. The food was delicious too. Then we went to Giza to the pyramids and when we got there it was simply indescribable. It was a wonderful day and we would definitely book it again under one condition: that Rasa is our tour guide again. She was so nice and then showed us the right places where we could buy our souvenirs for a fair price. All in all, a wonderful day and anyone who intends to book it: ask for Rasa, she is the best.

Starting with the very bumpy 7h drive from Hurghada to Cairo. For German standards the roads were bad and in Cairo everyone drove as they wanted, but our drivers got us through the day well and you always felt safe! At the Egyptian Museum we met our guide Rasha, she is an incredibly lovely person who helped you in every situation, whether it was "bypassing" the stalls, at the various sights, or negotiating, also for She was always open to questions on all topics! The absolute highlight were of course the pyramids, which are simply breathtaking, you just MUST see them when you've been to Egypt! All in all it was a very nice and eventful day that we can only recommend, thanks to the whole team;)

The day tour was one hundred percent worth it. Our guide Rasha was a sweetheart and made our day sweeter with her pleasant and open-minded manner. The drive from Hurghada is of course tough and should not be underestimated. The many security checks, road conditions and also the traffic contribute to this. However, it is worthwhile and you get a lot on offer. Optionally, we could book a boat tour for 10 euros on the Nile through Cairo. (Recommendation on our part) Price-performance ratio is great! Kind regards Dustin & Samantha

A wonderful day in Cairo! The trip is really a bit long but it is definitely worth it. Our tour guide was very kind and thoughtful and took care of all requests.
