è un esperienza che bisogna assolutamente fare. l'autista del pick up è venuto a prenderci davanti al resort ma ci ha chiesto dei soldi. Non abbiamo capito il motivo della sua richiesta perché il pick up era incluso. il viaggio è abbastanza stancante ma ne vale la pena. siamo partiti dal resort verso le 00:00 e siamo arrivati a Cairo verso le 10 del mattino. durante il viaggio ci siamo fermati diverse volte e abbiamo aspettato parecchio ma non ci è stato detto il motivo. l'organizzazione è precisa come nella descrizione ma a parer mio il tempo per poter visitare le Piramidi e la Sfinge non é abbastanza. Fate molto attenzione al museo del Papiro se volete comprare qualcosa perché loro cercano di fottere la gente con i prezzi. il prezzo è ok. Il guida italiano (Aimon) è una persona squisita, è molto gentile e cerca di aiutare un po' tutti.

A tiring, tiring but indescribable journey. Departure for about 2AM, arrival in Cairo at 9.00 where you will immediately realize that the traffic of Milan is nothing compared. Trip to the Egyptian museum with sarcophagi and mummies (so to speak), visit to the papyrus factory and immediately after a boat ride on the Nile. All this before lunch which is included and where you will find yourself eating in a typical Egyptian restaurant. After lunch you will finally go to see the pyramids, I recommend spending those 10 € more and taking the camel that will take you to the highest point to admire the 6 pyramids. To end the wonderful day you will be hosted in the perfume factory, hosted as as soon as you arrive they offer you all sorts of drinks to rehydrate you after the 50 degrees you had to endure before and where they will make you feel at home. A big thank you to our two guides who turned out to be exceptional. An unforgettable journey.

Ci sono venuti a prendere all’orario stabilito al resort e dopo aver caricato altre persone da altri resort, siamo partiti verso Il Cairo. Il viaggio e’ più lungo del previsto (circa 9 ore) con diverse soste in vari check point. Lungo la strada ci si ferma per colazione e cena. Una volta arrivati al Cairo, l’escursione vale tutta la fatica del viaggio. Museo egizio molto bello con guida italiana. Crociera sul Nilo carina, durata 20/30 min. Pranzo classico egiziano con pollo, riso, patate … Il pomeriggio siamo andati alle Piramidi e alla sfinge, durata circa 2h e 30 min. Alle piramidi si può fare il giro a cammello a 10 euro o entrare dentro una piramide a 25 euro. Inutile la sosta ai profumi (30 minuti) dove insistono per vendere Carina la visita finale al museo del papiro. Nel complesso escursione consigliatissima se si vogliono vedere le piramidi e Il Cairo partendo da Sharm, in maniera economica. Durata totale 27 ore di cui circa 20 in pulman
