It was clear from the start that it would be a tough day. You have to take into account a total of 14 hours on the bus for the return journey. But it's worth it and is unrivaled when it comes to price-performance comparison. You should plan an extensive massage for the next day to get the stressed limbs back into shape. All in all, an impressive day that brought you a little closer to this wonder of the world and the people it loves.

The trip was very good. The drive from Hurghada to Cairo was very bumpy because the roads had a lot of potholes. We were picked up from our hotel on time and drove about 7 hours. Our guides were also very good, they gave us a good explanation of what is worth doing and what is not. What was annoying was that the local street vendors were very pushy. They try to attract customers with gifts. Our tour guides had warned us that we should “not accept the presents”. Lunch was okay. The tour of the pyramids was very interesting and so was the museum.

interesting and nice but super long! just a small pb in the statement of the offer, it is not a minibus that takes you to cairo but a bus! count almost 24 hours from the moment you leave the hotel until your return! otherwise unforgettable moment to visit all the monuments
