We were looking to see more than just the pyramids as Cairo is a huge city, this what we did and chose this tour. Cairo is a huge city and need time to see sightseeing there, we have 4 kids and this was an easy flat walk around the pyramids. Sheriff was a great guide and had all the best spots to take pictures. Good luck guys
