At the pyramids there was lots of information from my guide Amin and enough time to take photos and ride a camel to the viewpoint. The felucca ride on the Nile was a wonderful and romantic end to a successful day and Amin had many interesting things and funny anecdotes to tell. I will remember this day very well and my special thanks go to Amin and my driver who got me safely and quickly through Cairo's traffic.

He spoke excellent English and answered all our questions about the history of the pyramids. The boat ride is a relaxing and beautiful way to experience the city of Cairo. Highly recommend!
