Full description
Take a convenient sleeping train from Cairo to Aswan or to Luxor and back with a guaranteed reservation. Your accommodation on the train includes dinner and breakfast the next day. First, book your tickets and receive them at your hotel when you arrive in Egypt. On the day of travel, head to the station at least 30 minutes before your departure time. At Giza Station, there are a few small shops to buy snacks or water, as well as a small restaurant. On the platform, the small numbers hanging from the platform canopy indicate the approximate location of the wagons. So, if you are in Wagon #6 on your ticket, line up by the #6 sign. Wait for the green and white-colored sleeping train to arrive which has the words 'Sleeping Car' stenciled on the side. Board the train and find your accommodation. Enjoy the comfortable 10 to 13-hour journey with dinner and breakfast served. Feel the satisfaction of waking up in an entirely new region of Egypt, refreshed and ready to begin the next portion of your trip.

In principle, everything is fine, but rubbish is everywhere, both inside the train and outside. The food was tolerable on the way. Even when the train was late for a DAY, they continued to feed. And so: a double compartment with a washbasin, clean linen, hot and cold water, a guide ready to help, .... On the way from Aswan to Cairo, everything repeated itself, however, although the train departed on time, it was still two hours late.

The price is very excessive. However, as a couple traveling to Luxor, we loved having this experience. Getting up and having nothing to do other than seeing the landscapes parade is a real pleasure. The staff of the station as well as the train are incredibly helpful and our listening, thank you to them! Small flaw: the lack of shower and dirty toilets.
