Sound & Light show in Cairo not to miss

Paul & Belinda , 15 Dec 2015
Just returned from Sharm El Sheikh having booked two trips (Cairo and Quad Biking) after reading the comments and reviews contained in this guest book, before this entry. They are all so accurate and won't hesistate booking them next time from the UK before we go. The Cairo trip we went on was made extra special by our guide Sheriff who is very knowlegable and passionate about the history of his Country. He is also very caring of his 'friends' who attends his tours. He could not have done more for us. He took photos for us and held bags while we went in the second pyramid. He raced to get the best seats at the sound and light show and gave valuable hints and tips on how we could best enjoy a hassle free day. I would highly recommend Sharm-Club for booking you trips. Thank you very much. See you next year.
