Does the price sound good ?Just contacted a guide who was recommended on this sight. For a tour that starts at 7:30 am and final drop off is at 8:00pm for the train , includes the sight admissions and a car. We are going to quickly cover the pyramids and see as much of islamic and coptic cairo as possible as well.Like i said a long day. price is 50$ p.p....sound ok ?

2Is the guide included as well?? Make sure you are clear on the number of sites that are included - my experience was that they only included 3 sites and the guide services there. Depending on the number of people. We just hired a taxi to take us around, no guide, but in Luxor with car, driver and guide, it was about $18pp. Guide was ok, and we paid the site admissions, which brought it up to about $25-30 pp. The driver/guide/car was split between two of us.

3It's my pleasure to be your tour guide in Egypt. We are going to begin the tour at 7:30 am direct to Giza Area (the great pyramid, panoramic view for Giza pyramids, the sphinx & the papyrus museum) then we visit Islamic Cairo (the citadel of Salah Al Din, Mohamed Ali Mosque, Ibn Tulun Mosque) then go to visit Coptic Area (the Hanging Church, San Sergious Church & Ben Ezra synagogue) then we drop you to the train station.
This Tour will cost 50 USD per person including the entrance fees for all the sites, not including entering the pyramid from inside. The tour with A/C Van,
This is the email i received. From what i can see is that it includes entrance fees. Also figured it would be good to have a guide for the day to maximize our time and also to have our luggage with us so we can go directly to the train without having to go back to the hotel. He's gotten good reviews on here and a few extra $ will be ok. Plus we will be going until 8pm , and yes, we will be moving around a lot during the day .

5We lived in Egypt for 20 years before we quit our jobs to travel around the world. Egypt is a great place, you will love it. Guaranteed!
The price for the tour seems very reasonable, knowing that you will be visiting several sites (around 7) that's around $7/site which makes it very reasonable.
