    Very very nice place, full of history, a lot of activity there, its really a wonder.. Amazing huge pyramids. You should go and see it live. We took a guide with horse and toured around the pyramids.. They told us about the history and all. A must visit place

    I cannot praise sharm club enough, this is the second year we have used them. We had a brilliant day in Cairo with Sherif the guide putting a smile on everyone's face. The office in nabq bay is now closed which we only found out after walking up to book Cairo, but after a short email which they replied to straight away it was no problem for them to come and meet us at the hotel. So until next year we wish a big thank you to sharm- club

    What a fantastic trip. The local man Ibrahim picked us up at the hotel and took us to the airport. He could only go with us so far and had to send us on our way. It went very poorly at the Sharm el Sheik airport after that. What a giant mess that place is. Total disorganization. We were met in Cairo by Sherif. OMG. Sherif is amazing. He took such great care of us. He has great energy and must love his work. He kept us away from all the merchants who will drive you batty trying to sell you things. He gave us extra water from his personal stash and even bought water for us from his own pocket. He was extremely knowledgeable and very fun. And, he took amazing photos for all of us in our group. This was a once in a lifetime adventure made so much better by Sherif. We felt safe the entire time. And them back to Sharm where we were met by Ibrahim, who took us to our hotel. By the way, the local man here, Ibrahim, is also fantastic.

    We had the most wonderful time on our day trip to Cairo. After a very late night the night before, we were slightly concerned we weren't going to pull through the day, but with our excellent guide - George - who is an archaeologist & very informative, we soon forgot how tired we were as there was so much to see & take in. We ended the day at a jewellery shop, where we were invited to join in the wedding celebrations of one of the shop keepers relatives! The next thing we knew we were being fed beer & a 2 course meal! Cairo is a fascinating & intruiging city & the Egyptians are the most welcoming, friendly & genuine people I have ever come across. I would highly recommend Club Sharm to anyone. Their service was friendly, professional and nothing was too much trouble. Thanks again to George our guide, and Osama our very capable driver. We also arranged a day trip to Ras Mohammed from Sharm, and once again we had a brilliant day. Thank you very much!!

    We truly had an amazing time on the one day Cairo By Air from Sharm Els Sheikh. Our guide Hassan was very knowledgeable and the whole experience far exceeded our expectations. Even though our flight back was delayed by 3 hours we did not feel let down. Hassan took us to an "Egyptian style pub" and we enjoyed a meal and drink, all paid for. We virtually had a private mini bus and water bottles were available the whole day.

    Had a fantastic tour flying by air to Cairo and seeing the Egyptian Museum along with the Pyramids and the sound and light show. Sharm Club were fantastic, all pick ups and collections went without hitch. We had to text our room number to them when we arrived at our hotel and we recieved a reply within 2 minutes! Our guide George was outstanding, showing an outstanding knowledge of the artifacts in the Museum, and then getting us some of the best seats for the sound and light show at the Pyramids, right at the front !!! Being part of a large holiday group (14 people) although only me and my wife went on the Cairo tour, five of us decided to go on the quad bike excursion from Sharm El Sheikh. I text the Sharm Club and recieved a reply within half an hour confirming our trip for the next day. Although we had not paid a deposit they were quite happy for us to pay on the day. What other company would do that ? All I can say is if you want to enjoy any excursions in Egypt, consider the Sharm Club. They were quite outstanding. Many thanks to all there staff.

    Just want to say thaank you so much to Sharm Club. We stayed in Sharm for 2 weeks in March and booked 2 trips- Cairo by air and Ras Mohammad by boat. Both trips were excellent but Cairo was really special. We went on my birthday and it was amazing. Thank you to Alex for arranging our trips for us, coming to meet us at the hotel (even though our hotel wouldn't let him in!!!) and generally being awesome. Hello to Malik too and thanks for making sure we were ok at the airport. Our guide in Cairo was brilliant, we had Sherif and he made the day so much fun. He made sure we had a great time, learnt a lot and generally looked after us. We would highly recommend using Sharm Club, don't believe what the hotel tour reps say about using other companies. Our trips went without a single hitch and everything was perfect. Their prices and value are so much better too. We didn't go to Luxor this time but have decided we will be going back to Sharm in the future and will be contacting Sharm Club in the first instance. Thanks again all of you! Lucy & Brian

    We have just arrived back in England sadly, but we thought we must email you and thank you for such a wonderful day that you organised for us in Cairo on Saturday. The one place in the world I have always wanted to see was the Pyramids and it was everything I hoped it would be. I must say that George, our guide for the day, was superb. He answered every question we had and made it such a good time. He really is an excellent guide and please pass on our grateful thanks. Without his knowledge and skill the day would not have been such a success. We have already decided that we will be coming back to Sharm next February when we hopefully will be able to use your excellent company again to go to Luxor . Nothing could have been organised better by your company, the pickups, transfers, flights and guide were excellent. Thank you very much and we look forward to seeing you next year.

    I wish to highly recommend Sharm Club. From my initial booking for 27 college students and 3 teachers made in England with Carolann and Philip, right through to the aftercare we received when we got home, the company was faultless, and I will certainly use them when I visit Egypt again. During our time in Egypt, we used Sharm Club for 4 excursions. We went to Mount Sinai and St Catherines, a daytrip to Cairo by air, a jeep safari and the Bedouin night. The prices for all trips was very reasonable and the treatment we reseived was first class. Sherif made our experience in Cairo unforgettable. He was a mind of knowledge and such a friendly chap, who went above and beyond the call of duty. He didn't mind taking individual photos of all 30 so it looked like we had our hand on top of 1 of the pyramids. He was a true professionsal, and it was unfortunate that we missed out on our trip along the Nile beacuse of the traffic. (It sounds like it traffic is always bad, but this was made far worse due to the fact that we were in Cairo on the day that Egypt were in the semi-final of the African Cup of Nations!) Mido accompanied us on the jeep safari and the trip to Mount Sinai. He kept the students entertained with anecdotes and by writing their names in Hieroglyphs. Bercy, who co-ordinated all of our excursions was also suberb. He was a wealth of knowledge on Egyptian life and culture, and the Bedouin way of life, and answered any quetions that our students threw at him. Bercy also arranged for a courtesy bus to take us to visit Sharm Market as a thanks for booking all our trips with them. When we arrived back in the UK, Bercy contacted us to check that we had enjoyed our time in Egypt, an unnecessary but nevertheless thoughtful gesture. For anyone that really wants to get to know true Egypt, I highly recommend that you use Sharm-Club. They make a good experience not just great, but unforgetttable. Thank you Bercy, Mido and Sherif, from Priestley College

    Did the 1 day trip to Cairo in September and had a fantastic day. Hassan was the guide and he was both knowledgable and great fun. Highlight of the day was the pyramids, but the museum was fantastic too. We also went to the papyrus factory, hard rock cafe and did the nile cruise. Would highly recommend this company and trip to everybody and hope you have as much fun as we did. You will if you get Hassan as your guide !!!

    My husband and our two girls have just returned from our first trip to Egypt. We had paid a small deposit before going to Egypt to secure a booking to visit Cairo by air with Sharm Club. I can honestly say that we were absolutely delighted with the day and would highly recommend Sharm Club to anyone interested in excursions on their holiday in Egypt. Shariff,our guide,was brilliant and made the day effortless for us. Sharm Club even arranged for a cake to be presented to my husband and I in Hardrock Cafe in Cairo as it was our 10 year wedding anniversary. We couldnt have asked for a better guide and we are very very happy that we chose Sharm Club for this once in a lifetime trip. 10/10


    Clare RuddockReviewed 15 December 2015

    We booked the full day Cairo trip by air. 4 adults and 2 children. What a day...!!! We were met by Shariff, who has so much enthusiasm and knowledge that I can honestly say, our day would not of been as enjoyable without him. Not only did he give us historic facts and dates, he went out of his way to take once in a lifetime photos and ensured we saw every possible aspect of the pyramids and sphynx before they closed (at 4ish). No matter what age you are (our party was 9 to 73), it was a great day. Many thanks to Sharm Club, we will be visiting again next year to do the Luxor day trip.


    Helen DooleyReviewed 15 December 2015

    A dream come true for both of us. We flew to Cairo on the last full day of our holiday. We were picked up as promised from our hotel in an air conditioned bus and transfered to the airport. After a short flight we were met by our guide, Sherriff, who lived up to his reputation and looked after us, entertained us and gave us a day we shall never forget. Thank you to all at the Sharm Club for giving us a truly memorable experience.

    I just felt I had to write to yourself and let you know how much myself and my partner enjoyed our tour on Saturday. We have just arrived back from Egypt last night and one of the most memorable events was visiting Cairo. The tour guide Sheref was an amazing man. He was so informative and extremely friendly. He took many pictures of us which will be a memory forever. He done more for us than we believe any other tour guide would have done and it was obvious that he knew his stuff and was passionate about the history of Egypt. He was such an amazing man and done anything that we asked and much, much more. Can you please pass on our best wishes to Sheref and thank him greatly for our special day. I believe it to be one of the best we have ever had and this is greatly down to him. I would definetely recommend this tour to my friends and family in the future if they were ever to visit Egypt. Kind regards, Yours sincerely Diane and David

    Found Sharm club online. Emailed the company to verify information before booking the tours. Very efficient and helpful staff. Stayed in Sharm el Shiekh 22 March 2011 for 1 week. Booked 2 tours, Cairo by air day trip and St Catherines Monastery, Mount sinai etc. Cairo trip was amazing. The guide stayed with us at all times. Felt totally safe in Cairo/Egypt. Went behind the pyramids away from hustle bustle so we could see a view of all 3; took a camel ride also. Breathtaking, silent, trotting through the desert with the pyramids in view. Would definitely recommend this company to all. I am a keen explorer and love history, culture. It was great to see another wonder of the world

    We booked two trips with Sharm Club - Cairo by plane and Ras Mohammed boat trip. We found Sharm Club to be the cheapest for trips. The tour guide Sherriff was fantastic. He knew everything about the history of the pyramids and took some really great photos for people on their cameras. The boat trip was also fantastic with snorkelling in the Red Sea. I would highly recommend Sharm Club to anyone. We booked online before we went and paid a deposit and the balance when we went on the trip.

    Cairo by air,14 Feb. A superb day out with simple, punctual and efficient transfers by minibus and internal flights. Sherif looked after us and nothing was too much trouble. We travelled with friends in their late 70s but despite limited mobility they never felt that they were holding up the group and Sherif took extra care of them. Pyramids and Sphinx impressive of course but Egypt needs to take better care of the site! We split from the group in the Museum to explore on our own and found ourselves completely alone in the Mummies Room with the rulers of the ancient world, what a privilege! Thanks Sharm Club, thanks Sherif.

    We had a fantastic and unforgettable trip to Cairo, going to the Egyptian museum, taking a Felluca trip on the Nile, visiting the Pyramids and Sphinx and taking in the evening light show. The trip was made all the better due to the efforts of our tour guide Sharrif. Throughout the day he did everything to ensure we enjoyed ourselves. He was humourous, enthusiastic and clearly loved telling us all about Egypts history and Islamic faith. He was also great at taking lots of photographs of us, making sure they were quirky and memorable. If you go to Cairo,I hope you get a guide as good as Shariff. Truly an unforgettable experience.

    We went out on the Cairo by air trip and had the most amazing time. Our tour guide Sheriff was brilliant, his English was perfect and his knowledge of the Egyptian history couldnt be matched! He brought such enthusiasm to the whole day and ensured that this was the best part of the holiday. The day was a great value for money and Sheriff's expertise made the day amazing, he took some fantastic photos for us and looked after us the whole day. I couldn't fault a single part of this trip and was the best part of an already amazing holiday. I will be booking again for another trip next time i visit. Thank you for Sheriff for an amazing experience!!!

    Well, what can I say that hasn't already been said so many times in other peoples comments! If you are looking at these comments deciding on whether to book your excursion with Sharm Club then look no more!!!! This company is the one to go with. My girlfriend and I went to Sharm on 5th July for one week. I was contemplating booking our trip to Cairo by air with Sharm Club for some time, until finally taking the plunge and booking it about a week before we left the UK. I paid a ÂŁ5 deposit, and didn't pay the balance until we were being taken back to our hotel at the end of the day AFTER we had been on the excursion! That just doesn't happen in this day and age! These guys are so trusting. OK, so now you should all have made your minds up to go ahead and book with Sharm......now, about the tour! Well, all we had to do was txt our room number upon arrival in Egypt to Sharm Club to confirm the pick up. We were picked up on time, taken to the airport, got our flights to Cairo, was met in Cairo airport by Sheriff (whom I cannot praise enough) and began our trip around Cairo. We had the most amazing day out, Sheriff is very knowledgeable in Egyptology, he's an extremely friendly guy....and love's taking pics for you, nothing was too much trouble! Once our time in Cairo came to an end we were taken back to the airport, back on the plane to Sharm, met again at the airport and returned to our hotel. We would just like to thank Sharm Club for such a great time, and a special thanks to Sheriff who made the day better than we had hoped for. We recommend this company 100%, and the same goes for Sheriff.....THANK YOU Sharm Club! "...and nowwww my friends" - Sheriff
