Great tour of two cities

Thanks for the great excursion to Cairo,it was made very special by our tour guide sherif where nothing was too much trouble. He was passionate about Egyptian history and a great photography and gave us some excellent pictures of the whole day. We visited the pyramids which was excellent and the Egyptian museum was also very interesting and we also had a trip on the Nile. Next day we visited Alexandria and saw many Roman sites we never heard about! I would highly recommend sharm club and also recommend you take the flying option. If i return to Egypt i would definitely hope that sherif would be are tour guide again, many thanks.

Experience not to miss

We have just arrived back in England sadly, but we thought we must email you and thank you for such a wonderful day that you organised for us in Cairo on Saturday. The one place in the world I have always wanted to see was the Pyramids and it was everything I hoped it would be. I must say that George, our guide for the day, was superb. He answered every question we had and made it such a good time. He really is an excellent guide and please pass on our grateful thanks. Without his knowledge and skill the day would not have been such a success. Nothing could have been organised better by your company, the pickups, transfers, flights and guide were excellent. Thank you very much and we look forward to seeing you next year.

For Cairo/Alexandria tours we recommend dressing cotton/linen clothes with long sleeves and preferred long trousers in summer. Hat is a must in summer. In winter a jacket in the evening may require especially in Alexandria..

Most of restaurants here offer the following: rice, potatoes with tomatoes sauce, chicken or cofta (kind of beef), different kinds of green salads, cucumbers and tomatoes, pickled vegetables (especially salted lemons) and some kinds of national dressings such as takhina (made of sesame). Please note that as a rule fish is not offered in restaurants. Western and Eastern sweets are also on offer.

Any kind of soft drinks, juices or water are not included in meal so that you have to order it yourself with extra charge.

Even if you are a vegetarian you can always find something to eat during your tour.

If you order a breakfast-box for your early tour, you can find the following inside: pocket of juice, an apple or an orange (depends on the season), piece of bread, cheese triangle, cake or cookies. The richness of your breakfast box always depends on the hotel you stay in.

Yes, you do need to obtain a visa to do the trip.
