We were picked up on time from our hotel in Hurghada (Sunrise Crystal Bay Resort). Made it to the airport for transfers to Cairo. When we arrived in Cairo our tour guide Muhammid greeted us and escorted us to our vehicle. To our surprise, we were taking a tour on a religious holiday, so the traffic was smooth. We visited Mosque on the way to the museum, we were able to take pictures and video. On our arrival to the museum, it was crowded, but we didn't have to wait long to enter. Inside was magical with so much history, statues, and stories of the egyptians. We took many pictures and videos and took in a lot of information. We were able to visit both floors in time and had extra time to spare. With the extra time we took a boat tour on the Nile River, where we listened to the waves and soft music and took a deserving nap..lol. After the Nile River boat tour (40 min) we went to a jewlery shop to pick out souvenirs (cartouche pendents) then to eat lunch. Then we finally made it to the Pyramids (so exciting) At the site of the pyramids our tour guide advised us on picture taking of the camels and people (They will charge you) and of the not so real antiques they were selling. We took many pictures and video. We were guided to the Great Pyramid, Sphinx Pyramid and some tombs (A very steep climb down, but fun). When we were done, we returned to Jewelry shop to pick up pendents and proceeded to a shop where they made portraits from Papyrus paper. From here we went to a Perfume shop (by this time we were exhausted so we didn't purchase anything) and then made it back to the airport on time. The entire trip was very accommodating considering that my mom has a disability with walking. The tour guide walked every step arm in arm with my mom. And the driver made sure to drive us a close as possible to the sites. Overall our experience was informative and FUN!
