That's because the shock of seeing so many once-proud and still serviceable steam locomotives being towed away for scrap is engraved in granite, and stuff like that doesn't go away that easily. It was the end of civilization as I knew it. But the misery didn't end there. When Beeching became BR chairman in he turned the screw even further.
We were picked up and dropped off at the airport and it all went to plan. The Luxor trip by our guide Marwa was amazing. Luxor i so hot though and found it hard to enjoy. They picked us up promptly at the hotel, delivered us to the airport and Marwa met us the other side and looked after us all day.
Very safe and she gave us water too. Loved every second of it. If I could rate this trip more than 5 stars I would!! We were collected promptly from our hotel at 4.
We met our tour guide Mahmoud sorry if I spelt your name wrong: There were 9 in our group and he called us "Family": He gave us so much information, and explained everything in a lot of detail, showed us around Luxor and answered any questions with ease.
The Valley of the Kings and Karnak Temple were personal highlights for me, so fascinating and Mahmoud is so knowledgeable in Egyptian history! We spent some time in a banana farm and got to eat as many bananas as we wanted, they were delicious.
Then we went a perfume shop where they demonstrated and let us sample some perfumes.
The guys in the shop were lovely and gave us a complimentary welcome drink. We were left back to the airport and Mahmoud walked us in and ensured we got boarding passes ok.
Unfortunately we ended up getting delayed due to a sandstorm but Sharm Excursions and in particular Mahmoud looked after us. He came back to the airport having finished work and was an absolute gentleman, taking us out for a meal which was paid for by the company.
He then left us back to the airport to get our flight back to Sharm. This one day trip gives you a great oversight and flavour for Luxor and the history of ancient egypt-it is just WOW, something else! Definitely would highly recommend this trip and Sharm Excursions to anyone!
Even with the delay this trip was totally worth every penny! Mahmoud is a credit to Sharm Excursions so a massive thank you to you Mahmoud it was a fantastic day: Hopefully see you again in the future, love from two of your "family": We met our tour guide Abraham in Cairo airport and he was fantastic the entire day!
He gave us so much information, in a lot of detail, showed us around the Egyptian museum and answered any questions with ease. At the pyramids and the Sphinx he was just as knowledgable and was happy to take as many pics as we liked and plenty of funny poses too!
The pyramids and Sphinx were so amazing and beautiful!
We got to see how papyrus was made and visited a perfume shop which was absolutely beautiful! We were left back to the airport and back in our hotel for 9. Also our taxi driver never got his name unfortunately was an absolute gentleman and looked after our bags all day!
This one day trip gives you a great oversight and flavour for Cairo and the history of ancient egypt-it is just WOW, something else! Thank you Sharm Excursions it was a fantastic day: There is not one thing i would change about my experience, everything was perfect from the 4: He is not just a tour guide, he is someone who has a passion for Egyptian history and archaeology and he is a great great credit to sharm excursions.
If you get Abdul as your tour guide, consider yourself very lucky and prepare to learn alot of exciting new information! The tour itself consisted of a trip to the Egyptian museum where you will learn alot about Tutankhamun and the life of the ancient Egyptians.
