We stayed at The Grand (great hotel) with Red Sea Holidays who also organised this trip for us with Destination Egypt. Costing 175 euros each it was great value for the day. Picked up at 4.15am by mini bus with one other pick up, 5 of us in our group taken to Sharm airport with Red Sea rep. Flew to Cairo in just under an hour at sunrise, so great views in a 50 seater twin propellor plane which was fun. Met at airport by another Red Sea rep who escorted us to our mini bus to meet our fantastic guide Gouda and driver. We went to Egyptian museum first, an hour with very knowledgable Gouda & an hour on our own to wander around with some recommendations from Gouda, what a wonderful place. Plenty of stops to take photos of historic buildings, a visit to the papyrus factory with opportunity to buy great pics then on to a restaurant for lunch which was ok.

On to Giza with the magnificent pyramids & sphinx what a sight the engineering involved in constructing these buildings is too difficult to imagine. One of the seven wonders ticked off the list. Just say no thanks to the hawkers and continue to move on, no need to be rude as we heard some people being. Having a great guide really added value to this visit. We then went on visit to a perfumery and essential oils out let, plenty of deals to be done here. We also visited an Egyptian cotton outlet store on the way back to the airport. Egyptian driving in Cairo is something you won't to experience very often but with a driver we felt safe throughout, whilst in one of the outlets he had ice creams waiting for us on our return, which was so thoughtful.

We were taken to the airport and awaited our flight back to Sharm at dusk, met Red Sea rep there who returned us to our hotels by mini bus arriving back at hotel about 9.15pm

Our great guide Gouda really made this excursion for us and also the friendliness of our driver sorry can't remember his name. Cairo is a city of 22 million people and nothing like Sharm so be prepared for the shock of the real Egypt which isn't always pretty.

A great value trip, would recommend.

The trip was good. Although you only have from 7am to 5pm actually in Cairo. It is worth going, however it will feel slightly rushed.
You will see the Cairo museum which is brilliant. But you will only get 1hr free time. This sounds a lot but it isn't. You barely get time to look at anything. You could do with half a day in the museum really. Then you go for lunch on the Nile. The food isn't up to much. Then you head to the pyramids. These are impressive, but it is very disappointing that the city is built up right to the side of them.
Also for the whole tour you will get pestered by vendors selling you things. be prepared.
If you get offered to buy the DVD at the museum for £9 please don't bother, it is a waste of money and not very good.
I would recommend going but it isn't a glorious relaxing sightseeing day. The guide is lovely though.

Well we were very disappointed to hear that tourist busses had been stopped for the last few months, from Sharm el Sheik to Cairo. The only choice now is to fly or go on the ordinary public bus. Flying would have been ridiculously expensive for 3 of us, yet there was no way we were going all the way to Egypt without seeing the pyramids! So public bus it had to be. Go to the bus station in Sharm (any taxi will take you there) and book your seats in advance. Best busses are run by Superjet and GoBus! Cost is 80/100 £E. Air con. Takes 6-8 hours each way. Views and scenery along the way are amazing, but ultimately boring after so many hours! And then you get to the centre of Cairo, dumped onto the hot street in the middle of a vast traffic nightmare! Take your life into your hands just to get across the road! Eventually, when you get there, the pyramids on the edge of town are quite awesome, worth all the hassle and trouble to get there!
