Cairo to Alexandria Destination Reviews

The only thing that made me uncomfortable is that on my trip from Alexandria to Cairo the guy who handled my carry on luggage asked for a tip. I gave 20 but he was dissatisfied and asked for 50. I did give 50 but I think tips and the amount of tips should be a voluntary thing.

Everything on the bus was perfect from watching movies to the right driver. We just did not receive a mail and we paid for it. That was my only problem. Everything else was superb.

The return was great, but the first way we arrived late cause we had a long wait in one stop - still don’t understand why - and also a long stop for coffee.
