FAQs

A. When and where does the tour start/end?
Your tour will start/conclude your hotel as its private daily tour for approximately 04 hours from 08.00 AM till 01.00 PM.
B. Do you arrange an entrance inside Pyramids?
Yes, this tour visits Saqqara Pyramids area. However, some clients who wish to enter inside the Pyramids, especially the Step Pyramid (against charge), should indicate booking to pick them up earlier and purchase tickets directly on site.
C. Do you arrange airport transfers?
Private airport transfers are when you and your travel companions order pre-booked transportation to your destination. Airport transfer fees usually start at about $10 per person one way. In other words, it is not in this tour fare; you can expect to pay at least an additional $20 per person for transportation to and from the airport. Typically, you are met at Cairo airport by Geoota Travel driver & Guide holding signs with names outside of the baggage claim in the arrival hall.
