Cairo overnight tour by bus we did
5 / 5
shabana and shakeel , 15 Dec 2015
Just got back from Egypt and had to leave feedback for this trip. We booked an over night by bus to Cairo and glass bottom boat in Naama Bay. The guides were very knowledgeable in Cairo. The accomodation over night was just fantastic! And the visit to the museum, nile cruise, pyramids and sphinx were absolutely fabulous! In fact it was so good that we already looking at booking them for our next visit. I would give them a full 10/10 for the service they provided us. May I also takethe time to thank our guide in Cairo, Abu Bakr. Without whom the day wouldn't have been quite as special! Well done guys! Hope to see you again soon!
