OK

See accuweather/hurghada and click on April 2017 for the best information.

As for that trip.

Note Cairo is approx. 300 miles from Hurghada. A Day trip, with small children, is really only realistic if you fly both ways.

Overland will be at least 6 hours each way not counting stops along the way.

Overland plus an overnight stay might work.

Cheers

Hi,

It is more than 400km from Hurghada to Cairo, so you will need to stop at least 2 times for a few minutes rest.

There are cofe shops in Ras gharib, then your second stop will be in Sokhna house.

Have a safe trip.

If you intended flying and perhaps hiring a private van that had child seats maybe.

But travelling by bus all those hours no.

Are you just wanting to see the pyramids?

Personally I wouldn't take the kids rather wait until they are older .

Cairo is hot busy and noisy.

Hi sr12341

Take them to these places instead, historical but child friendly.

Opened in 2015 Hurghada does boast a "Grand Aquarium." I visited it (man of 65) last September. I would be wary of recommending it as, in my opinion some Birds, they have other animals such as Crocodiles, are in cages far too small for them sadly.

Having said that the children that I noticed, there, especially viewing the Fish tanks were transfixed and really enjoying the experience.

I am sure there is a reasonable amount of information about it online so you can decide for yourself.

I only offer it as an alternative as your children may not be ready for snorkelling in the Red Sea.

Enjoy

Anthony
