Our family had a fantastic experience in Cairo. We visited all highlights and must see including Giza and Saqqara Pyramids, Egyptian Museum, Coptic Cairo and the Citadel of Saladin. We had also dinner cruise on the Nile.Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, fluent in English and spanish and really friendly. Our representative and drivers were very gentle and polite. We were staying in Oasis hotel , a very nice hotel by the pyramids. All these were organized by Tour Egypt for less. Randa and her team did really a great job. Indeed a great experience we will never forget. Egypt has a lot to offer. Thank you all for your great efforts.

The city that never sleeps, great food from half dollar meal to hundred dollar, crowded, noisy but same time it's unique and got its own flavor
