Cairo bus tour is fantastic
5 / 5

We were somewhat anxious about the 6 hour busride to Cairo. The bus trip was indeed somewhat long and strenious,both ways. Information was translated to English and Russian. As a foreign language the Russian translation seemed to last 3 times longer than English. That said, now to the positive! The trip on the whole was great!! The tour in the National Museum was informative and the two hours went super quick. The inexpensive extra trip on the Nile is definitely a must! The trip to the Sondos Papyrus boutique was both informative and interesting. And of course the Pyramides and the Sphinx was breathtaking! Simply fabulous! The trip to Crystal Essence boutique was less interesting, but heck these stores basically sponsor a bit of the remarkably cheap tour price! So bearing that in mind, we tolerated the stop! I missed although the opportunity to shop in the Cairo markets of advertised on the one day tour webpage! But at the end of the day we were pretty weary anyway, so the loss was nor too great. Sharif our guide in Cairo was excellent and the service on the bus was good. Tips: Bring a m3p player,(disposable)earplugs, a pillow or something thick and soft to lean up against to make the bus ride as "comfortable" as possible. Toilet paper if you don't want to take the chance at the loo stops Plenty of food for both directions. Reminder that the lunch by the Nile will be your last food stop. We also brought with us water although water was provide on the bus. A napsack for your valuables and water if don't want to leave these things unattended on the bus. Thank you Sharm club for a great and inexpensive tour. We definity reccommend the tour (if you can spare some hours sleep!) We went diving early the next day, so its not that difficult! Do the trip and get some rest later!
