    Cairo Overnight Excursion reviews

    We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Egypt. We took the 2 day Air trip to Cairo. From start to finish they were most professional - they collected us from our hotel in sharm el sheihk brought us to the Airport and when the 2 days were done they escorted us back to our hotel. We had a wonderful Guide, George and driver, Osama. They could not have been more professional and helpful. George explained everything so clearly and was a mine of information. We were in the company of Leigh and Terri (see previous comment) and we were also invited to the wedding of a local Egyptian young man and his bride. We were wined and dined and made feel very welcome. The Egyptians are so friendly and inviting. We will certainly be returning to Egypt and will us Sharm Club for any excursions. Thank you George for making our trip to Cairo so wonderful and informative.

    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!
