Transfer to The Cataract Pyramid resort and guides

Hi There, I`m travelling to Cairo in March . There will bea group of 5 females. What is the best way to get from the airport to The Cataract Pyramids resort. How much is a cab (s) likely to cist. Also we want to see the pyramids and the museum. Is it best to book a guide before we go or is it easy to organise something when we are there. Any advice would be appreciated.

The besy way to get a cab (black and white costs min 35 pounds o/w) , the yellow cab costs 3 l.e per k/m or you can check for Egypt Air mini-bus .

Try to contact a local travel agent to book for one day sightseeing tour visiting the Museum and citadel and may be to coptic Cairo or Khan El Khalily bazaars . . It can be organised with the assistance of your hotel but it will much expensive !

Have a nice trip

Hi Cat14

if you are coming to Egypt AFTER the 15th of March so you are coming in peak period, so in that case i recomend you to book your daytour from any agency, but if you come earlier than that then you can either before or after arrival to try to make your OWN reservation for car and guide as well, it will be easy

regard your question about transfer frm Airport to hotel, so easy , just when you arrive and after going out from the arrival hall , you will find many car companies and Limosine agencies, they can give you a VAN to transfer all teh 5 of your group to the hotel , price for a regular car or taxi from airport to hotel is 60 Egyptian Pounds (i know it exact as i live in same area near by) but for a van i think the MAX they can charge you is 100 Egyptian pounds which is almost 9 English pounds more or less

wish i covered all your questions , if you have anything more to ask pls do

enjoy your trip

The Egyptian guide has the accurate taxi price, 35 LE will be barely enough to get you outside the airport terminal!

You can also try one of these companies:
