      I have rated this "very good" but with some provisos.
      This train is neither The Orient Express nor The Blue Train but then, it does not pretend to be. It will get you to your destination in moderate comfort and close to scheduled time.
      I boarded in Luxor at the end of a 44C day. The cabin remained at around that temperature for a few hours before the air con could make some headway.

      The cabin I had was not exactly capacious but as I travelled solo, it did not need to be. The cabin was as clean as the staff could make it and the bed linen was clean. The water supply to the hand basin was a trickle in the evening and nil in the morning. However, to shave on either a train or plane is sheer madness, so a supply of hot water is not absolutely necessary. A better, or even a cold supply, would have been nice.

      The evening meal was exactly the same as I had on the Cairo-Aswan leg and as I had on similar trips in 2018 and 2019.- chicken, rice etc. Not bad and well above the standard of Qantas economy class food. Chicken was surprisingly tender and tasty and the rice, perfectly cooked.

      Breakfast was not to my taste but I appreciate the difficulty of trying to cater to a diverse customer base. Coffee? Give it a miss.

      Adherence to schedule - well.... I can say, that on no occasion, in all my trips, was it early.
      I slept well and for the most part enjoyed the experience.

      One thing that would improve the experience, would be clean windows. But, the Saharan dust will always win.
      Just don't expect a lot and you won't be disappointed.

      We took the train from Cairo to Aswan as part of our tour through Egypt and whilst it wasn't the most luxurious train trip in the world I wasn't really expecting it to be. The cabin was quirky with two fold down single beds a small basin. The toilet was at the end of the carriage and was probably best not used in a station. We steered clear of the food carriage because there were people smoking in there.

      The chicken dinner was fine by me and I got extra because we had a vegetarian on our tour :) It was a little bumpy at times but we got some sleep and arrived safely in Aswan.

      Our guide took care of tipping so we didn't get hassled with any of that. My advice would be go for it, what's a nights sleep when you get an experience you talk about for the rest of your life!

      The only thing good about the train is the onboard staff. The train was in a great state of disrepair, the journey was a sequence of jerky stops and starts, cupboards broken and smoke everywhere - 90% of people seem to smoke in Egypt. Porters trying to rip off tourists - really a porter at Aswan who just grabbed bags and demanded egp400 to carry bags and then tried to use a gold porter badge is just wrong - he got 20 as a result which was more than he deserved when demanding money for tips. I guess that js why there are tourist police now. Would fly next time Aswan or Luxor to Cairo.

      The most beautiful scenery you will ever see is in Aswan! See my pictures attached. Words can't express it.
