Our Cairo discovery tour
5 / 5
Olistar , 15 Dec 2015
We travelled to Sharm el Sheikh in mid Nov and wanted to see Cairo. After reading reviews on the internet, we booked with sharm club for a day trip by plane. It was the best day ever in Egypt. We got an invoice telling us to call after arrival, and that's already what we did, the following day their representative came to our hotel on time, gave us pickup time and all the information we wanted know about the trip. The following day we were collected from our hotel in a minibus. Our tour guide Sherif "who is a real pro" was there at the airport to meet us and we had an air-conditioned mini bus and very nice driver waiting for us. Both of them spoke very good English. The day was wonderful, little bit long but definitely worth it. <br><br> I'm telling everybody, don't be scared booking online, specially with those guys. If you are going to Cairo you will have an absolutely wonderful holiday!
