Be aware of dishonest Guide!!
3 / 5

Overall this was a good tour. Positives: 1) Beautiful pyramids 2) Knowledgeable guide 3) Clean transportation Negatives: 1) Taken to stores where we were forced to buy herbs and spices. This was in the middle of the tour and ruins the entire experience with the build up to the pyramid. Quite frankly ask to avoid. 2) the guide was dishonest and used every opportunity to charge us an extortionate amount for extras, which are usually a fraction of the price. He asked us to pay £20 per person for a 30 minute Camel ride, which should usually be 40 egyption pounds. Another £15 for a 10 minute cruise down the nile 3) rushed through the museum. Which meant the tour finished early and we were dropped off to the airport 3 hours early Overall you should go on the trip but be very mindful of the potential of getting a dishonest guide who will rob you at any given opportunity and if the opportunities don't present themselves he will create them.
