Day tour to the pyramids, sphinx, Cairo etc
Would be interested in tour leads and what you find out. I'm looking into doing a quick long weekend recon trip from San Antonio to Cairo via Istanbul in early November.

Is there anyone else that has already booked a tour with a company? It seems like the fare varies from $60-70 per person, including lunch. Some offer vans, one mentioned a bus. There are four of us, and we don't want to be crowded into a car for the 2-1/2 hour drive each way.
Any information would be appreciated.
