Awesome day in Caïro!

We we're thrilled to have Sherif as our guide and Mustafa as the driver. We thought we would first go to the museum and finally to the piramides but we flipped the schedule and started early in the morning at the piramides. It was magical. Sherif told beautiful stories and knew how to steer us clear of all the other tourists. It was private and we felt as Cheops himself. Thank you so much we can recommend everyone this beautiful day in Caïro! B & K
