We did a private tour last month from Port Sokhna to Cairo. This was a two and a half hour drive. We used Ramses Tours. You might like to look at this
It was the highlight of our trip. We had Mina as our guide and he was superb. For 3 people a modern minibus was provided to give us plenty of room. You have a great late departure so have time to do a worthwhile tour. We didn't want to stop for lunch but Mina got us some takeaway food which he insisted was freshly cooked for us. It was delicious and no ill effects!
If your day in port is a Friday perhaps give the Cairo Museum a miss as Tahrir Square is next dor and that is demonstration day after Friday prayers. However we felt very safe and arguably less of a target than a coach load of tourists...
