The trip was very long and exhausting, you have to be aware of this when choosing this trip.

A very good organization, for Egyptian conditions already over punctually one on the other co-ordinated. We had a very nice guide who spoke excellent German. We were on the road for 23 hours, with 3 children (10/11/12) of course it is very long, but it was worth it. We can highly recommend this trip!

The bus ride: the bus was a coach, we were very pleased about that. Really appropriate for such a long ride. Unfortunately, after 2 hours the air conditioner dripped and the condensation water from the ventilators was spilling away. This problem seemed to have been there for some time, because dark spots had already formed on the fabric. The trip took longer than expected Altogether we were 24 hours on the road.

The tour guide: we would have a wonderful tour guide named Russia. Lots of humour, lots of info and full of passion. It explains everything, what costs how much, what is worth it and what not, how to treat intrusive salespeople and what you have to pay attention to. She took very good care of our group and looked after each individual equally well. With her the trip was a lot of fun and it was really worth it. She made up for the mistakes in the bus and the dampened atmosphere. Besides, her German was very good.

Cairo: a city that everyone who is in Egypt should see. It is worth it, even if the journey is so long. The sight of the pyramids is incredible and you can see how the worlds meet here. History meets the future, the modern meets the past, regardless of whether one looks at architecture or culture. The visit to the museum is somewhat short, but it is enough to see almost everything, to learn a lot and to marvel at a lot. But the short stay in the museum can be justified, because the day is very well planned, so that one can see a lot. At the end of the day you go to a perfume shop, it's the only shop you get into and at the end it was even very nice. You can buy something, but you don't have to. A single shop is quite okay and the owners of the shop had a lot of understanding, patience and were very reasonable in price.

The trip was very long and exhausting, you have to be aware of this when choosing this trip. However, it is very worthwhile to make this experience. The museum was huge and packed with impressive exhibits. Our travel guide guided us well through the museum and was able to answer every question. During the trip on the Nile one could discover the beautiful side of Cairo well and take beautiful photos. To see the pyramids once in real is an absolute must and it is worth it. This trip was all in all a beautiful day trip

Unfortunately the sales tours were not announced with what was quite corrosive above all with children! Which is why a 16h trip became a 22h trip

Your experience

Highlights

  • Enjoy the magnificent panorama of the pyramids of Gizeh
  • Admire the Sphinx
  • Learn about the history of Egypt in one of the most famous museums in the world

Description

We will pick you up from your hotel in Hurghada and drive you to Cairo in an air-conditioned vehicle. It is a beautiful route along the Red Sea coast and through the impressive eastern desert to Cairo.

Once you arrive in the capital, a German-speaking travel guide will be waiting for you. All our tour guides are specially trained in Egyptian history. Our groups are small and individual, so you can experience special care.

We start our program with a visit to the Egyptian National Museum, which is one of the world's largest museums. Those interested in the history of the oldest world culture should not miss the visit. Many pharaonic treasures such as grave goods, coins, clothing and jewellery are exhibited here, such as the gold treasure of Tutankhamun and some sarcophagi. Afterwards we drive to an excellent restaurant where you will enjoy your lunch in buffet form.

Now we go to the oldest and still preserved wonders of the world, the pyramid Cheops and the two other pyramids of Chephren and Mycerinus. There, on the plateau, you will also experience a unique panorama and be able to film and photograph all the pyramids.

Finally, you descend to the guardian of the pyramids, the Great Sphinx, consisting of a lion's body and the head of King Chephren. At the end of this exciting day you will drive back to Hurghada and be brought back to your hotel.
