The trip was well organized. However, the 16 hours in the description are not realistic. It takes at least 7 hours there and 7 hours back. Our trip had lasted almost 24 hours. The seats on the bus were very close together so that even we, as "normal-sized" people (177cm), had no legroom. That's why the almost 16-hour bus ride was really exhausting. You always need some small change for going to the toilet (0.5 - 1 €). The air conditioning and the suspension of the bus were good. Our tour guide Hanna was very good and very nice. We could ask anything and she was very knowledgeable. In my opinion, what you got to see in Cairo was enough (museum, Nile trip, papyrus shop, restaurant, pyramids/sphinx and perfumery), but the time at the pyramids was too short (about 40 minutes). We would have liked a little more time there. Overall, the trip was worth it, but we probably won't do it again by bus ;)

Journée rapide mais surtout épuisante, vous visitez les lieux assez rapidement. Organisation assez efficace.. Mais pas une très grande partie de plaisir (vous êtes entre 45/50 pers) Lorsque vous arrivez au musée le groupe est divisé par 2 (francais/anglais/ou russe) Pour le resto c’était pas non plus le top (buffet avec des tas de touristes) c’est le point de rencontre de tous les bus pour touristes (c’est à la chaîne..)

This journey is very long but an experience you will never forget. They picked us up at 2am and we got to cairo at 10am. We didn’t get back till 1am so it is a whole 24 hour trip but definitely would recommend.We had an amazing tour guid called Hanan. She was so lovely and sweet and very knowledgeable about ancient Egypt as she has a degree in egyptology. The cairo museum is a must to visit. You don’t have that long unfortunately only an hour and half. Seeing Tutankhamen treasure in the museum was insane something I will never forget. After we went on the boat ride which was quite long like an hour and half. From here you can see how beautiful Cairo is. We then went to have lunch the food was really nice. After lunch was the iconic stop which was of course the pyramids. We done the camel ride at the pyramids which was 30-40min ride i would recommend this ride for sure as you can see all the pyramids and the city of Giza.
