    Uns war von vornherein klar, dass es eine anstrengende Tour wird. Aber das war das kleinste Problem. Im Museum wurden wir mehr oder weniger durchgescheucht, immer mit den Worten "yallah yallah", und anscheinend auf das vorbereitet, was da noch kommen sollte. Welches Parfüm war damals anscheinend angesagt und was war eigentlich mit dem Papyrus?! Mumien und die Sarkophage wurden kurz gezeigt, aber irgendwie nebensächlich. Andere Dinge gibt es ansonsten im Museum anscheinend auch nicht mehr zu sehen -.- Anstatt 2,5 Stunden im Museum, wie angekündigt, würden wir in 1,5 Stunden abgefertigt. Danach ging es zu einer 30 minütigen Nilfahrt (natürlich 10€ extra pro Nase). Da das Mittagessen erst noch bestellt und zubereitet werden musste ;), hatten wir "zum Glück" noch Zeit für die Papyrusfabrik. Auch hier konnte und sollte man zusätzlich Geld ausgeben. Danach ging es zu einem "Restaurant" welche Buffet anbot, mit gefühlt 100 anderen Reisebussen. Und seltsamerweise, war dann auch hier wieder die Zeit knapp und nichts mit ruhigem essen. Ab zu den Pyramiden. Dort angekommen wurde auf die Frage ob meine beiden Mädels nochmal kurz aufs Klo gehen können wieder nur mit "ja, aber Beeilung yallah, yallah" geantwortet. Als wir vor der ersten, größten Pyramide standen, schaffte ich es grad so ein Foto zu machen, bevor ich, mal wieder, ermahnt wurde mich zu beeilen und in den Bus zu steigen. Wir fuhren zu den beiden kleineren Pyramiden wo wir darauf hingewiesen wurden, unsere Souvenirs doch nur beim seriösen bekannten der Reiseleiterin zu kaufen. Nach ca 30min. erklang das mittlerweile gewohnte "YALLAH, YALLAH". An der Sphinx hatten wir dann noch geschlagene 5min um Fotos vom Straßenrand machen zu können. Immerhin bräuchten wir ja noch Zeit für das Highlight des Tages. EINE GANZE STUNDE (die aus dem Museum) Verkaufsveranstaltung für Öl und Parfüm. -.- Alles in Allem eine bodenlose Frechheit!!!

    Of all the experiences I was booked on, this was the one I was most excited about but unfortunately it did not live up to that excitement. In total the experience lasted 25 hours. It wasn’t very well organised, there was a lot of waiting around which ate into the time we were supposed to have at each place. The museum was the first stop and we started off by waiting outside for half an hour while they tried to get tickets, when we did get inside we then had to stand for nearly another half an hour while our guide explained the history of Egypt and why upper and lower Egypt are upside down on the map, he then proceeded to start an argument with another guide who had two people and were in the area before he took us over there. Then he started his whole explanation again. We did eventually move on but it was very rushed. In the whole museum we saw 6 exhibits while listening to the guide yes explain some of what we were looking at but also explaining his own personal political views. There is no air con in the museum so the air you get is when you move, due to the extended periods of time stood in one place I actually passed out. When we were moving even slowly, I was fine. Twice we were told lunch was next before we stopped to do something else, great stops, don’t get me wrong but when you’ve already been on the go for 13 hours you need lunch and a cold drink. I specifically asked if there was an option of going inside the pyramids and was told yes and quoted a price yet when we got there, it was not an option. We also only got a quick walk round to see the sphinx at a distance. Overall, it was amazing to see the things we saw but despite lasting 25 hours, the whole day was very rushed and disorganised. I wouldn’t do this experience again or if I did I would be with a different company. A shame because the guide was actually lovely and very knowledgeable but didn’t seem to understand tourists and time certainly doesn’t mean a whole lot.

    Dieser Trip war die absolute Katastrophe. Die Verkäufer von MTS Tours am Strand, verkaufen dir den Trip sehr geschickt. Sie versprechen dir, dass du in 6 Stunden da bist. Somit denkst du es sind insgesamt 12 Stunden Fahrt. In wirklichkeit wurden wir um 02:15 abgeholt und wir waren am 01:15 retour. Das heisst Tripdauer 23 h. Davon: -1.5 Stunden im Museum (dies war sehr Spannend) -zirka 1 Stunde Mittagessen (das essen war ein typisches Touri essen und hat mir nicht geschmeckt) -45 Minuten Pyramiden anschauen und Fotos machen (dies war sehr sehr beeindruckend) -zirka 30 Minuten Sphinx anschauen (auch dies war beeindruckend) -45 Minuten in ein Parfum geschäft (MTS wurde sicherlich bezahlt damit wir Touris dort abgeladen wurden) -Restzeit von 18.5 Stunden Busfahren (dies war die absolute Hölle) Für einige schöne Fotos von Sphinx, Pyramiden und Museum an denen wir gesamthaft 3 Stunden verweilten, mussten wir eine Busfahrt von 18.5 Stunden auf uns nehmen. Die Tour wird dir absichtlich mit falschen Reisezeiten verkauft. Ansonsten würde diese Tour niemand machen. Leider kann ich den Trip so garnicht weiterempfehlen und verstehe nicht weshalb jemand diesen Ausflug positiv bewerten kann. Liebe Grüsse

    Organisation perfectible mais correcte sur l'ensemble de la prestation. Repas inclus un peu juste en qualité. Par contre mention spéciale pour les guides francophones très gentils et compétents.

    Die eintägige Tour von Hurghada nach Kairo begann um 1.30 Uhr nachts mit einer 8.5 stündigen Bustour (darin enthalten ca. 2,5 Stunden Hotels abklappern, tanken, auf den Konvoi warten). Nach Ankunft (ca. 9 Uhr) in Kairo wurden die Mitreisenden und wir gemäß unserer Sprache in verschiedene Busse aufgeteilt. Der erste Anlaufpunkt war das ägyptische Museum in Kairo. In einem recht informativen 1-stündigen Rundgang wurden wir durch das Museum geführt. Danach ging es weiter (30 min Busfahrt). Wir hatten eigentlich eine Busrundfahrt in Kairo gebucht, die unserer Führer für uns jedoch ungeplant in eine "kleine Nilbootsfahrt", für 10 € / Person extra, änderte. Highlights waren dabei die Sicht auf die Häuser von Mubarak und Nasr sowie einigen nachgebauten Pharaonen-Party-Booten. Durch ein akzeptables Mittagsmenü (12:00 bis 12:45 Uhr) gestärkt, war der anschließende Besuch eines Papyrus-Museums mit integrierter Verkaufsveranstaltung noch auszuhalten. Mit dem nun neu erworbenen Wissen, wie man "unechtes" von "echtem" Papyrus unterscheiden kann und dem ebenfalls neu erworbenen Papyrusbild (sanfter Druck unserer Kinder), kam nun das Highlight unseres Trips: der Besuch der Pyramiden. Nach dramatischen Erklärungen unserer Tourguides (warum, weshalb und wieso ein Kameltrip unausweichlich ist) sowie weiteren ungeplanten 10 € / Person für den eben besagten kurzen Kameltrip zum Aussichtspunkt (ansonsten hätten wir in der Sonne warten müssen) konnten wir (endlich) einige schöne Fotos von und mit den Pyramiden machen (etwas Trinkgeld - man gab uns zu verstehen, dass alles unter 10€ nicht akzeptabel sei - erwarteten die Führer selbstverständlich auch mal wieder, da das Ablichten natürlich Ihrer Meinung nach nicht in den insgesamt 40 € für unsere Familie enthalten war). Einen kurzen Fußmarsch und einem Schnellbesuch bei der Sphinx später (16.15 Uhr) wurde ein Teil unserer Gruppe (Rückreise nach Hurghada via Flugzeug) auf den abschließenden Höhepunkt, Besuch eines Parfümmuseums mit weiterer Verkaufsveranstaltung, vorbereitet, während wir auf unseren Bus zur Rückreise warteten. Ankunft am Hotel war dann ca. 23 Uhr. Fazit: Eine anstrengende (vor allem mit Kindern) aber erlebnisreiche Reise, die jedoch vor allem wegen der "Geschäftstüchtigkeit" der Reiseleitung einen bitteren und teuren Beigeschmack hatte. Vor allem enttäuschend, dass einige Programmpunkte nicht im Preis inklusive waren und nochmals zu bezahlen waren - vor allem, da es schwierig war, diese nicht mitzumachen, da man ansonsten die Zeit im Kleinbus totschlagen musste - und das mit zwei Kindern!

    Morning Journey: We were picked up from our hotel in a little local van which had seen better days (max 12-14 people) but thought it’s only the local pick-up... how wrong we were. The drivers did not speak more than. Couple words of English and basically ignored us from the start, we picked up two more groups (both German) so was a quiet journey. We soon realised that we weren’t being driven to a air-conditioned coach as expected for the main journey - but were doing the 6 hour ride in this tiny old mini-van which was cramped and uncomfortable. We stopped once for a rest on route - the drivers just parked up and opened the door, didn’t speak to us or tell us how long we were stopping for or anything and just walked off. Worst road trip I’ve ever had.. Itinerary: The day wasn’t as advertised at all, we were taken straight to the Egyptian museum and then met with a tour guide - a German tour guide. We joined an other mini-van full of Germans and were taken around the museum for 30mins. Mostly we were listening to German with brief English paraphrasing thrown in for just us (only 2 English in group of 14), we were very disappointed. We then had 30 mins free time - that is not enough for this huge museum! We were rushed out so that we could take part in a additional charge activity- a nice cruise. We tried to decline as were not interested but were pressured into going along @ 200 LE each (£20 for both). It was a short boat ride seeing some buildings along the Nile and hearing both German and Italian tour guides speaking to groups. On this trip there were 2 other English with their own tour guide and we were moved to them to save our tour guide keep repeating himself. I would have preferred more time in the museum to explore. We then went to lunch in a restaurant in Giza (not the Nile as advertised) which was fine. Then we went to the Pyramids! Finally the main point of our visit to Egypt! When we arrived we were taken straight to the far point which we had been told would give us an amazing view of all three pyramids and the Sphinx in one photo. Turns out his amazing photo is only available if you pay extra (again) and go on a canal or horse cart - the way these animals looked/ were treated was a huge red flag and we refused - that’s a whole other story. Because we didn’t want the rides were wee given 30 mins free time. Considering the size of the site this only got us two one and took some photos. We were then driven back down the the largest so we could climb the steps and get some photos (15mins) and then taken to the small free entry pyramid for a quick look inside (15 mins), then it was back to the mini-van for a drive to the Sphinx - we got out the van at the roadside and took photos (5mins) and then were hustled off again. The main attraction and were weren’t there much more that 70 mins. We were being taken to an extra destination- an old family cafe for drinks/ toilet etc (extra charges again - getting the picture) but his time the whole group had had enough and said no thanks - we would like to leave. So the drivers.... walked off! Yep they went in anyway and left us in the van for 30 mins without talking to us or explaining anything - again. Return journey: Then it was the looong and rickety journey home - the vans door was having issues and was making god awful screeching noises which meant no one could sleep or relax, and we had to keep stopping for them to hit it with a rock and slam it shut again and again. We stopped for a toilet break after 4 hours driving at a cafe and again the drivers just left us and didn’t say what they were doing/ how long we’d be here... Tour guide: Was friendly enough but we felt like an unwanted extra to the German party - several times he would give instructions and details to the party in German and then start walking off so I had to ask - what did you say? Then would get a couple of words - oh we are going there.. not what he had been saying to the rest in more details. Do not recommend! We also did a day trip (Luxor) via the Thomson rep and that was 100% better value and more comfortable - The guide was also giving us tips and pointers and ensuring we had toilet and drink breaks and kept us fully in the loop... Very disappointed as this was our main reason for choosing Egypt and we didn’t get to stay at the sights we paid for as they wanted to take us to other places and pay more.

    Die Busfahrt von Hurghada nach Kairo war anstrengend, allerdings wurden wir dafür mit einem schönen und rundum gelungen Tag belohnt. Der Guide war sehr nett und hat immer gute Tipps gegeben.

    A very long day (3am pick up - 11:30pm return) but absolutely worth it. 6 hour drive to Cairo on an air conditioned coach with a stop. Taking in the museum,boat trip on the Nile, papyrus works, lunch, pyramids and sphinx and perfumery all with an excellent, very knowledgeable guide. I won't go into a massive long review, will just say it was the best day of our holiday. Worth every penny, don't even think about it, just book it.
