Lisett , 15 Dec 2015
Had wonderful 3 days tour of Cairo & Alexandria starting at 5.30am to visit 1st Cairo by plane. The transfer from hotel to airport and collection from Airport to Cairo was seamless. The drivers and guides were friendly and very professional. The days were made exceptional because of our Cairo guide, Sheriff, what can I say the man is amazing! To start we had a 2hr visit to the Museum and to be honest I am not really one for museums and thought once I had seen the main exhibits I would get a bit bored but how wrong could I be. Sheriff is not only extremely knowledgeable but is humorous and has such a great character I loved the museum. We then went to lunch by boat down the Nile and then onto the Pyramids. We spent night in a lovely hotel near the pyramids and next morning Sheriff showed us around other Cairo pyramid at Saqqara! And the last day we spent with Sheriff in Alexandria, this is the city he is from, so he had a lot to show and tell us about his home town. <br><br> It is an absolute must to do this excursion when visiting Egypt! Many people are just staying confined within their hotel because they are worried about visiting Cairo because of the troubles and I would like to say that at no point did not we feel threatened or unsafe at all in Cairo.
