Our trip to Hurghada came with a cherry on top due to our excursion package from Egyptio. We were able to look at all tours available during our time there and book online. So easy and convenient!! The Egyptian Museum was marvelous. So much to see and learn about Ancient Egypt. We could have stayed there the whole day exploring. We stopped at the Bazar and our tour guide helped us understand all the tourist traps, it was perfect. However, the most amazing part of the tour were the Pyramids. They are just as magnificent as imagined. It felt as we traveled 5000 years back in time. Touching them in person is surreal. Would also recommend a Camel ride.
