Overall, this was great tour, I'm happy to have done it. The Saqqara, the Pyramids of Giza, and the Museum were the best! Completely worth the money and time! Cairo is not a city where you can aimlessly walk around and see the sights on your own. It's very important to have a guide or be part of a tour, otherwise many, many people will try to take advantage of you and ask for random entrance fees and tips at every point, at each major sight. There are some hidden fees involved in this tour. The guides asked us to switch the order of sights that was originally listed on this tour, which we agreed to, but was not a good idea. They also don't tell you the insane amount of traffic that exists in Cairo and more so in Alexandria. Most of our day in Alexandria was stuck in traffic, which was really a shame. It took us a really long time to drive between the sights in Alexandria. We were also delayed returning from Alexandria. It is extra to go inside the Library of Alexandria. The tour of the Giza pyramids has some hidden fees to beware of. The guides on this tour will not take you into the desert to see the pyramids of Giza, they will push you to take a camel, horse, or carriage ride, which is extra. It is also extra to enter the inside of the Pyramids of Giza.
