I'd like to make it clear that I didn't stay at the Acropole, we simply went on their City Tour on a Friday evening.
My Dad is currently working in Sudan and we visited him for a week in March (staying with him in his apartment) however we came across the Acropole's city tour online before we flew out, and Dad was able to set it up with the owners for the week that we were there.
And what a great tour it was!!
A good 3 hours long, we visited both the National and Republican Palace Museum, the Blue Nile Sailing Club as well as a fort on the other side of the Nile in Omdurman. We then went onto Mahdi's Tomb and thanks to the guide were even able to go inside to have a look round.
Then a quick drive through the Souk in Omdurman and we drove onto what was seemingly a graveyard but which led us to a celebration taking place outside a Mosque, this was the Dervish Dancing at Al Nil Tomb, and this it has to be said was a highlight not only of the tour but of our entire trip!
A quick cup of tea with our guides at a tea stall and then we headed back to the Acropole to be dropped off.
Overall, a fantastic tour and if you're staying at the Acropole it should be an absolute MUST.
