I am really happy to use the company sharm-club to arrange our trip along the Nile and include the pyramids excursion. On the way back, not to stay extra transit hours in Cairo we decided to take a trip to Alexandria, a completely different world opened in front of us. This trip is the best option if you intend to do Nile cruise tour from Sharm el Sheikh.
