As we booked a holiday to Sharm el Sheikh we were also eager to visit other parts of Egypt. We found sharm-club offer of Nile cruise and Cairo 2 day tour from Sharm el Sheikh and decided to add it to our Egypt vacation. It was the best experience. Cairo pyramids are impressive, guides speak very good Spanish and Nile cruise boat was very cozy and stylish. We are happy that found this company online and did our Egypt holiday with them.
