Night train or not to Night train? your thoughts...............

Jump to last reply

We are in the serious stages of an itinerary bending pre-Cairo, Nile Cruise and white desert trip.

We have locked in most of the 'must see' and 'must experience' (plus must do) we are, how should I say.....Discussing......... the transport from Cario to Luxor and on to Lake Nassar cruises.

Just a brief background, we are travelling with children and like independant travel - mostly. We have been in the 'will night train' frame of mind unitl recently. When a work collegue has just returned from Egypt with 'stories' from fellow travellers whilst she was touring the sights. Whilst our friend didn't 'night train it' she had heard from those who did and who said they wont go back and do it again.

Stories included the usual, watch out for your belongings (I think this is a general travel warning) to the unsanitory comments about facilities and food and general inconvenience of the train/timetable/logistics.

So please, those who have been and seen do respond....those who have had friends/family travel on the train do so also

.........and hey anyone else that wants to throw their comments into our family 'discussion' most welcome!!!
