anitas,

I took the train and the bathrooms are beyond horrible. The cabins are o.k. In my opinion you should take the plane and only take the train for a short trip like Cairo to Alexandria

tisi,

That is what I have been hearing about the bathrooms. I would rather get up really early and catch a plane than deal with dirty, horrible toilets. Is it that way pretty much around Egypt? I am expecting the worse.

My husband and I just returned from Egypt. It was wonderful, but the weatehr is very hot right now. We flew into Cairo and spent a day with our personal tour guide. We then flew to Aswan, and boarded a cruise ship. The next four days were totally full of tours. I went through Bella Vista Travel, in Boston. We feel as though we got more than we paid for!

Another train question please---I used a website suggested here www.seat61.com and saw a picture of deluxe sleeper--looks OK--so how long does it take to get Cairo/Luxor and what time does it leave and arrive? It seems to make quite a difference in price over hotel/plane!!

Thank you Casual Cairo, I think you've told me what I want to hear. The sleeper train is a bargain compared to flight/hotel and I'm up for an adventure--sure hope I can skip the sleeping pills though!! Thanks again

Casual Cairo, actually, they may be cracking down on that sort of thing. Even as innocent as posting your website.. I believe there was a kidstolondon on the Europe board that kept getting deleted too. Whatever the cause, please don't become discouraged from posting.. your responses are always well considered and informative.
