Klare Empfehlung. Es war zwar wirklich ein langer Tag, aber wir konnten gut im Mini Van schlafen und somit die Zeit in Kairo wirklich genießen. Aufgrund der Epidemielage waren wir fast allein an den Pyramiden! Die Fahrer waren sehr verantwortungsbewusst und der Guide Ahmed einfach toll und sehr mitreißend. Das Mittagessen war sehr basic, aber völlig ausreichend. Wir haben zusätzlich noch eine Bootsfahrt auf dem Nil gemacht (ca. 5 EUR pP extra). Wir waren von 2 Uhr nachts bis 21 Uhr abends unterwegs.

Luckily, we were only 4 people on the trip so each of us had a full row on the bus and could lie down and sleep the whole journey. That definitely helped making the long trip bearable. The drivers were nice and friendly, although they did not speak much English. Our guide Ahmed called us from Cairo when we entered the bus in the middle of the night telling us the plan for the journey. Ahmed was in general very enthusiastic and informative and it was very clear, that he wanted us to have a good experince! The Nile cruise is an absolute rip-off, so do not bother. However, we felt a little pressured to do it even though we did not really want to pay the extra 10 Euros. However, Ahmed made it sound like the money would also go towards entering a pyramid. I reckon it is all a big scam and a proper waste of money. Despite that, I can definitely recommend Ahmed and the trip as a whole!

We were picked up at 2 a.m. in a comfortable van and were in Cairo at 8:30 a.m. Then a very interesting guided tour in the Egyptian Museum. Then to the Nile, over which we took a boat for around 30 minutes. Then for lunch with a view of the pyramids. We were only two Germans and had a guide to ourselves all day. Our guide Abdul is a very friendly man and was able to answer any questions and helped us with the photos. All in all a very great tour that you have to do in Egypt mMn.
