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

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.

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.

Everything went well and was very well organized. It was a very nice experience that the children (5 & 7 years) really liked. Recommended for everyone who wants to get a taste of culture, pyramids and Cairo. For people who want to deal with the museum or pyramids in detail and very extensively, the tour is not suitable because of the relatively short stays.

Wonderful experience with Emo Tours Egypt. My guide Khaled was so knowledgeable and super interesting. King Cheop’s pyramid was an experience of a lifetime, to enter. Camel ride to the highest point in Giza was super fun. The museum is full of ‘WOW’ sights.
