This port is the reason we did the trip. My low rating reflects our experience alone and you shouldn't let it dissuade you. The problem in Egypt for our entire cruise ship was twofold: a very late departure from Israel the previous night and heavy traffic on the way to Cairo. We tried to pack 18 hours of things into a 12-hour excursion, and in the end it turned out to be hours on a bus coupled with, "hurry-up-and-get-off-you've-only-got-five-minutes." On the upside, they did leave the great pyramids and the Sphinx open an extra hour to accommodate our tour buses. On the downside, it was dark when we arrived there and we only got a matter of a couple of minutes. Still, they did everything they could -- even gave 25% refunds to everyone who had an excursion -- and didn't deserve the amount of griping I heard. The sights of driving in Cairo and the squalor surrounding the Nile aren't for the faint-hearted. But Egypt's wonders absolutely shouldn't be missed in a lifetime.

In Alexandria, see the catacombs for sure. I do not recommend doing Alexandria or Cairo on your own. The ship excursion was overpriced and hectic with a jillion people being herded about. We did a private tour with a great guy named Hosny Abu Klia (abuklila@hotmail.com). We paid half the cruise rate for a much better experience.

We were surprised by the amount of security needed here so we only went with the organized shore excursion to Cairo - Pyramids & Nile in Style. This was a very long day with stops at Papyrus, etc. that did not need to be included.

One word, incredible! We did the overnight excursion, and we're so glad we did! We got to see everything we wanted too, plus some! The Four Seasons we stayed was stellar! Our guide was the best of the whole trip, we learned so much and didn't feel to rushed at each sight. We saw things we had only dreamed of seeing our entire lives. What an amazing, life changing experience.
