    Booked our holiday of Nile cruises and Hurghada with a local agent in Egypt. It was considerably cheaper than the Holiday offered by our Thomas Cook. We were booked with Sharm Club & everything went without a hitch pick up from the airport & hotel on time no hitches at airport met by our guide Sharif in Cairo (he was superb so knowledgeable & helpful in every way)he is a great asset to your company. Had a fantastic day arriving back at our hotel exhausted but totaly fulfilled having seen the Pyramids The Sphinx The Egyption Muesem had a ride on a Faluca on the nile & a guided tour of the old Bazar.What a day For Grandad Grandma Son & three Grandaughters age 6-9-& 11,We have many fantastic photos taken by Sharif to remember our trip. We had our fantastic guide Ahmed during the cruise, he was also very friendly, informative and sense of humor, we have visited many amazing sites in Luxor, the valley of the kings, karank & Luxor temple. We stayed also in Aswan, it was a fantastic sightseeing there and we enjoyed the Nile views. I Highly Recomend Sharm Club To All.
