Do NOT waste some money on this place.The fish tanks are dirty, there is trash everywhere.........it's boring, expensive entrance fee. If you go there, you probably will think you wasted money,time...and other stuff that you will complain. So, a good choice is to NOT go there.

Don't waste your time and money, it is very very very dirty, a lots of garbage in the tanks, some of them broken, garabage all over...If you still decide to go and look, don't be fool like us we paid 60LE for the ticketd for 3 of us, I would say that even 1 LE is too much.
