Cairo by bus excursion

Rated 5/5 based on 5 reviews

Fantastic memorable trip

5

What a fantastic day trip by coach to Cairo with Sharm Club four of us had on 29th June the best experience ever. Everything is handled so brillantly,guide Ahmed was very friendly and extremely knowldgeable about Eygptian history also took some lovely photos for us. Cannot fault this company and its guides at all also far cheaper than the tour operators offer. They did everything they promised and it was all so easy to organise. Nothing paid for until you are collected from your hotel for the trip which is unusual in this day and age. I would sincerely recommend their exxcursions wholeheartedly. As one other comment states the food on the river boat on the Nile was far better than any food in our supposedly 4* hotel all inclusive hotel in Sharm. Thank you Sharm Club and especially our guide Ahmed.

Excellent excursions!

We were on a one week holiday in Egypt in June, having never been before we were looking forward to the experience. I had seen good reviews of Sharm Club online and noted the number. On the third day we decided to book some trips, there are a lot of hagglers inside and outside the hotel so we decided to contact Sharm Club rather than brave the hagglers. We were going to get a taxi to the office, but when I called the representative offered to come out to the hotel. He was there in 10 minutes. We booked three trips without being in any way forced :) In fact, we felt completely in control of the purchase, the rep was only there to provide information. We went to Cairo by bus - exhausting, but a must-do for the traveller with little money. We were with other tour groups, but Sharm Club were separated into a small group of 6 with our personal tour guide, Ali. He was amazing, perfect English and so pleasant and helpful in every manner. He is a credit to the company and as a representative of his country. Ali knew EVERYTHING about Egypt and it's history, we thoroughly enjoyed our Cairo trip because of him. We also booked the quad bikes in the desert, it was half price compared to other tour operators for the exact same experience. We also booked a trip to Abu Galam but unfortunately, on our part, we made a mistake by booking it staright after the Cairo trip. We were too exhausted to go. This wasn't a problem for Sharm Club and there was no issue in cancelling the tour. Overall, our Egyptian experience was A+ and we can't wait to go back. :)

Memorable 2 days Cairo trip

5

We booked in July for overnight trip from Sharm to Cairo. This lived up to our expectations. Our guide Ahmed was very friendly and knowledgeable. We had an extra excursion added which was a bonus, and the tour was packed and organized well. Although the coach journey was very long the coach facilities were good and we were made as comfortable as possible. I would highly recommend booking with Sharm Club, and would definitely do so myself in the future. Thank you.

Fantastic bus tour to Cairo

5

The guides made our trip to cairo by bus a fantastic day1 the fact that we were trusted to pay on the day was a bit unusual to be trusted like that in this day and age. but they turned up early and delivered more than expected. we have recommended them to friends going next month and if we return we will def see them out there again

Cairo bus tour is fantastic

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!

Yes, during the visit you can enter any of the 3 pyramids if they are open to public. You will have to buy a special entrance ticket. It costs 100 LE to enter the Great pyramid of Cheops and 30 LE the 2nd one, the smallest one 25 LE. But from the beginning of the year the prices will be increased.

Yes, you do require full visa of Egypt to do Cairo trip by bus.

Visa can be purchased upon arrival in Sharm el Sheikh Airport at a special ticket office. It costs 25$ per person and must be stamped with the day of your arrival.

Unfortunately bus tour to Cairo is temporary suspended and Jerusalem bus tour is now happens just occasionally.

Cairo coach tour is temporary suspended by Tourism police.
