Day 2

Pyramids & the Egyptian Museum

Hello Cairo! Today, enjoy a guided visit to the famous pyramids and huge Sphinx at Giza Plateau. Sole survivors from the ancient Greek-listed Seven Wonders of the World, the pyramids are the planet’s oldest tourist attraction! Gaze in awe at Cheops (Khufu) - the largest of the three great pyramids. Constructed from over 2.5 million limestone blocks it is thought to have taken more than 20 years to construct. Whilst here, you can opt to enter inside one of the pyramids, subject to opening. Not built for the purpose of accommodating curious travellers, a visit inside one of the pyramids is hot, humid and not recommended for the claustrophobic! For a real Arabian experience, perhaps opt to hire a camel for a trot across the sands of Giza.

We later enjoy a guided visit at the Egyptian Museum. Prize exhibit has to be the priceless funerary treasures of King Tutankhamen, including his legendary solid gold death mask. Also during the visit you can choose to visit the Royal Mummy Room, where 9 royal mummies from the New Kingdom is displayed.

I highly recommend a personalised tour, and would definitely ask for Waleed Zayan as he is awesome! He is so knowledgeable and such a nice person.

When I arrived at the airport and was greeted by someone from On The Go Tours, who helped me get my luggage and take me through passport control, that made me feel at ease about being in a country that I had never travelled to. When we went outside and he introduced me to the rep, I was a little confused as to what was happening with the changeover of people, but as soon as we were in the car and Amir gave me an envelope which had my itinerary inside and we spoke about what I would be doing and some optional extra tours, I was less confused haha!

The next morning when my guide (Waleed) met me in the reception area, he ran through the schedule for the day and then we hopped in the van and the first stop were the amazing pyramids! On the way he asked if I specifically wanted to do or see anything and I said I wanted to get some papyrus (not the fake stuff they sell to you on the street) so he made sure we went to a proper place throughout the day. I really like that it is so personalised that way, rather than being part of a big tour group like 30 people and missing out on the things that you want to do or things you want to see.

The two days that I was on tour with Waleed were wonderful. He knew all the answers to the questions that I asked, which made me have faith in On The Go Tours as a reputable tour company.

When it was time to go home, the driver and the rep (Amir) met me at my hotel and took me to the airport, then Amir introduced me to someone else from On The Go Tours who took me to the ticket counter and through passport control etc. I felt so much more comfortable having someone with me just in case there were any language barriers.

I was very impressed with the fact that I was really looked after from the moment I arrived until the moment that I was back at the airport to fly to my next destination.

When it comes to feeling safe etc in Egypt, I didn't feel unsafe at any point in time. I think that being with a tour guide, or part of a larger organised tour group would be the safest way to travel around. I didn't walk the streets on my own, I did however go one night with Waleed to a local area, where I was the only tourist and there were hundreds of local people around, yet I wasn't bothered by anyone, nor did I really feel out of place, other than not wearing a hijab and being a different colour of course, but I respected their culture nonetheless.

Overall, I loved my experience and couldn’t fault a thing. I really want to travel to Egypt again and will definitely consider On The Go for my next trip, wherever in the world that might be!

Hi Mark

James and I returned home on Sunday from our trip to Egypt.

Although I have been to Cairo and the Mena House 3 times before, I was still fairly nervous about taking my 7 year old son there on my own.

I needn't have worried. Big Mina met us at the airport, and took us to the hotel - he even checked us in.

Our guide, Ahmed, was fantastic. He managed to pitch the tour at James level perfectly.

For 1.5 days James was enthralled. So much so, at some point on the holiday I promised him we would go to the Valley of the Kings. He has not let me forget that!

I didn't get a chance to fill in Big Minas customer satisfaction survey at the airport - so can you please pass on my thanks, and let him know the whole trip was excellent.... thank you.

If you could also let me know if you do a trip for 3 or 4 days in Luxor followed by 7 days in the Red Sea.

We would need a guide for the Luxor sites, it would be for 2 adults and 2 children - a 5 and an 8 year old.

Thank you again Mark, we both had a wonderful trip
