Day 3 : Cairo

Location: Cairo

Meals Included: Breakfast

Cairo - Luxor. Today we'll explore the Grand Egyptian Museum. Located only 2km from the Pyramids, this incredible new museum is home to a vast number of artefacts from across ancient Egyptian history. Some of these have never been on public display before and others have been painstakingly restored by experts. There is a large Tutankhamun exhibition and the museum makes use of modern technology, including virtual reality.
After our guided tour we head over to the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization to visit the fascinating Royal Mummies' Hall, where the mummies of ancient Egyptian kings and queens are on now display. Strolling through this incredible hall we'll see 20 mummies, including Ramses II and Queen Hatshepsut. Some of these mummies are so well preserved that they still have thick locks of hair and visible finger nails! Then we return to our hotel where there's time to relax by the pool and have dinner before we board the overnight train to Luxor this evening.

These two giant statues of King Amenhotep III are all that remains of what was once the largest temple in the world.

The tour was amazing ! What our tour guide 'Momo'' doesn't know about Egypt and it's history is not worth knowing. He went over and above to made sure everyone had a great tour and was always the ultimate professional, I can't sing his praises enough. Never at any stage of the tour did I ever feel unsafe or uncomfortable, the Egyptian people were so kind and friendly to us all. I would highly recommend this tour and especially 'Momo' to all my family and friends.

Everything about this tour was fantastic! Not only was Egypt amazing! the group size, accommodation and additional tours were great as well! What made this tour special was Mahmoud the guide. To be shown Egypt by a local who also happens to be an Egyptologist is something truly incredible! His passion and enthusiasm on our tour created an experience we will never forget. I just cannot possibly recommend this tour enough. Thank you so much.

I loved Luxor and Hargharda. I thought Holiday Inn in Cairo was quite poor. The male staff were rude and not always respectful. My cousin and I were expected to get our own suit cases from the locker room. My cousin insisted that that the male staff member oblige. The service was poor indeed. Ramadan the guide was equally rude, not respectful and obliging. He was pushy and asked me why I did not buy from the Jewellery store that he brought the group too. I said it was not a priority. He was disrespectul and messaged me that he wanted more money that what I and my cousin had given him. I cannot recommend the hotel in Cairo nor the rude and disrepectful guide who used his Surname for us to call him by. Further, I asked to sit out at the Alabaster place as I had a walking stick and sore Knee, but he would not hear of it and made me come down and join the rest of the group. He was focused on money and was unprofessional and was consistently focused on himself and self praise, which is definitely no recommendation. The staff in luxor were thankfully devine. The guide Amirr was fabulous. not pushy and he would sit with us for meals and we were happy to have our meals later so he could join. Highly Highly recommend him.
