Excursions

We offer excellent rates and personalised service for any itinerary you have in mind. Unlike tour operators, our tour guides won't force a diversion to perfume shops and to so-called papyrus "institutes" and carpet "schools" on the way to earn visit fees so you can be sure to enjoy any shopping you may choose to do at a time that is convenient to you. Here are some examples of our rates and services (amounts in Egyptian Pounds, LE):

Hire of air-conditioned car with seatbelts and driver (seats 4 visitors):
Rate per 8-hour day: 400-550 LE
Surcharge for day-trip to Alexandria: 250 LE
 
Hire of air-conditioned car with driver seating 6 visitors:
Rate per 8-hour day: 650 LE
Surcharge for day-trip to Alexandria: 400 LE
 
Tour Guide (to explain the antiquities): 450 LE per 8-hour day
 
In one day you could visit Giza, Saqqara and Memphis (if you're fast) or go to the Egyptian museum, Al Azhar Park and the Khan El Khalili. There are plenty of options to suit your itinerary and needs.
 
Horse or camel-riding by the Pyramids (up to 1 hour): 120 LE (excluding entrance fees) per person
 
Horse or camel-riding excursion to the Pyramids of Giza and Saqqara (approx 6 hours round trip plus visit time): 380 LE (including entrance to area) per person
 
Other services (just name it!): Price on request

Things to do with Kids

There are plenty of activities to amuse children throughout your stay and we can arrange a nanny service if desired. As well as the excursions to the pyramids of Giza and Saqqara, horse and camel rides and swimming outings, you might want to consider Dr. Ragab's Pharaonic Village (20 minutes' drive), Giza Zoo (25 minutes drive) or Fagnoon Art School, www.fagnoon.net (25 minutes drive). There are playgrounds for small children in the local Sofitel and Meridien Hotels (as well as our own playground in the garden). You will find amusements (e.g. merry-go rides, bumper cars, softplay units, arcade games) at the following locations: Carrefour City Centre Maadi (25 minutes' drive), Dreamland Theme Park (20 minutes' drive).
