It is easy to lie back and get some well-earned relaxation after viewing the Sphinx and pyramids. There is security on board the train. There were no incidents or mishaps. The overnight train is a modern air-conditioned sleeper, with twin-berth beds. The beds are comfortable....More

It's a very relaxed train station if visited at the right time. Busy in the day and very slow at night. If you need to buy tickets, try to do it in the evening, otherwise you'll be stuck pushing and fighting your way to the...More
