Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Just returned from wonderful holiday in Sharm. Booked day trip to Cairo with Sharm Excursions before travelling and it was the highlight of the trip. Flew from Sharm by scheduled Egyptair flight to Cairo and met by our delightful guide Lily who stayed with us all day. Only 6 people on trip so we had Lily's full attention at all times. Her knowledge of ancient and modern Egypt was excellent and thoroughly enjoyable. Be assured there is no threat to safety at any time in Cairo. Tutankhamen exhibit and Pyramids are overwhelming. Thanks Sharm Excursions A1

Recently spent the day in Cairo with Sharm Excursions. The trip was incedibly well administrated leaving us very comfortable with the process. Met with Lilly at the airport and her passion, knowledge and cultural awareness was fantastic. Her friendly genuine interest made the tour even better. Cairo' a crazy, bustling city with such variety and diveristy and Lilly made sure we got a true feel for the place but at no time did we feel at risk or uncomfortable - in act we spent some time chatting to locals from all parts of the city - The pyramids were obviously the highlight and we were given a number of excellent "personal" options on how to enjoy the experience which we did thoroughly

A definate thumbs up to the trip - especially Lilly and Mohammed who made us so welcome and really showed us what Cairo can be

The Cairo trip was absalutely fantastic! It was well worth the money. Cairo is very safe and I did not once feel scared. My tour guide Lilly was fantastic, she was very knowledgeable and we all enjoyed her company. The tour rep Mohammed also checked on us during he tour and we laughed and had lots of fun with him. We visited the pyramids they are beautiful. I would suggest people to definatly visit them. We also went on a Nile cruise for £10 which was well worth it, also a buffet is included in the package where the food is tasty. You can also have a camel or horse ride around the pyramids for £10, it is worth doing as u can take stunning photos of the 3 lyramids in line. Overall it was a fantastic excursion and it made holiday. I would advise everyone who wants to visit Egypt to book this excursion and ask for Lilly as your tour guide as she was wonderful to be around. We. Had Ono troubles in Cairo and there is joint to fear. I just want to say a big thank you to Mohammad and Lilly for making that day one of the best days of my life!

Just came back from Egypt and we had the most amazing day in Cairo thanks to SharmExcursions. They pickep up us from our hotel on time 4:55 and took us to the airport, where they also helped us to get the visa to go to cairo (which nobody acheck after, but you need it). Once in Cairo we met our AMAZING guide Maya, she was so lovelly that even stoped to buy us some breakfast on our way to the National Museum (it was no included but she was so nice to do it for us). On the Museum we had a really nice time again with Maya explaining to us the most important things (which I just saw again on tv Channel 4) , then the Highlight of the day THE PYRAMIDS,I can't describe here how amazing it is!!! We did the camel ride and he had the time of our lifes. Maya (our guide) and Reda (the driver) tried their best to make our day amazing, and they did!!! Thanks again Maya and Reda! there's nothing to fear in Cairo, we fell safe all the time, they really looked after us. So don't be scared Go to Cairo!!!!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Perfect trip by courtesy of Sharm Excursions. Everything well organised. Punctual collection from hotel, plane in european standards (but you can take water on board). Will was my man Cairo. Great dude with lot of knowledge and good humor. Museum was absolutely brilliant, too bad you can't take photos. Pyramids don't have to be recommended but it's worth to take a camel trip into the desert for great view and photo opportunities. Safety wasn't even my concern, apart from few tanks that I found more as another attraction (no pictures allowed though) than threat, people seemed to be living their ordinary lifes (cultural shock was another positive for me). All in all great trip (thanks again Will!) and I highly recommend Sharm Excursions and Egypt in general. Peace!

Cairo Tour by Plane from Sharm 1 Day Excursion
Travelled to Cairo with my children (8 and 5 yrs) and my mother on 31st July 2013. We were met at the airport by our tour guide Will who was fantastic, knowledgeable and excellent with the children. Our first stop was Cairo museum, no sign of any disturbances, but there was a strong military presence which neither myself or my children found troublesome. The museum was fantastic, it was a shame as only a hand full of tourists were there to appreciate how brilliant it is. We travelled down the Nile by boat to our restaurant which provided an excellent lunch, then it was on to the pyramids. We found the pyramids amazing and went inside a small one to see the chambers, then it was on to the sphinx . We also had time during the day to visit papyrus and perfume stores and purchased some lovely gifts. We had been a bit worried about going on the trip due to the recent events, but Cairo was safe and the trip was an experience which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you to Mohamed and all the team for a wonderful day which was the highlight of a fantastic holiday.
