Many hotels can arrange this tour for you, and most will tours include transportation, meals, and hotel pickup.


one of the most beautiful towns in northern Egypt. Amazed by the "snöhetta" designed new library and its surroundings. Nice people and good restaurants if you give them a chans. Don´t misstrust for waiting. They are egyptiens!
