Cairo and Luxor by a sleeping train

5

The trip includes flight from Sharm El Sheikh to Luxor an overnight sleeper train to Cairo and bus trip back to Sharm. The trip was excellent from start to finish. In fact throughout the whole excursion the reps and drivers really couldn't do enough to make sure that we were happy. In Luxor they arranged for us (at an extra cost but very cheap) to spend the evening before setting off on the overnight train in fantastic hotel where we could rest and get showered. The tour guide was name John and I can't praise him enough. His English was excellent (he was a former English teacher) and his passion for Egyptology was second to none. We were in a small group of 5 and were made to feel very special and John made sure that he paid attention to our needs - making sure we had plenty of shade, water, etc. Luxor was amazing and we couldn't help but be inspired by John's enthusiasm. In the evening both John and the driver returned to make sure that we got onto the train safely.

The train itself was fantastic (don't expect 5* standards as you'll be greatly disappointed but that's not why you would do the overnight train anyway). We slept like logs and the train inspector looked after us well and woke us up with breakfast and made sure that we got off the train at the correct stop.

In Cairo we were met by Sharif, another enthusiastic and very comical tour guide. Sharif again was well versed in the history of Cairo, the Pyramids and the Sphinx. The day again was fantastic and Sharif made sure that he looked after us well.
