This is a REAL warning!! - COMPLAINT!
Don’t have HIGH hopes for this hotel. I started my Pyramids & Beaches tour in this hotel. It’s a dump.
Paid for an extra night before the tour started and was really disappointed. The room was rundown and there was no water pressure. I felt bad for having to run the “hot” water for over 20 minutes before it was lukewarm - seriously wasting water!!
The sheets had holes and stains! I slept in my sleeping bag under the blanket since the room was too cold!
I thought the disappointment would end when I returned to Canada… HOWEVER…
The night we left for the train to Aswan, I still couldn’t buy postage stamps to mail my postcards to my friends and myself. It’s a long standing tradition, I send postcards - so I did the usual thing, asked the hotel staff how much it would cost, gave them the money + a tip and my postcards.
Weeks later, NO POSTCARDS to be found! Instead the ones I mailed a week later from Aswan and Dahab have arrived.
Judging by the deceitful ways of other Egyptians… I have a feeling he just pocketed my money.
Don’t expect the tour leader on the trip to tell you much about Egypt, he’s only a leader NOT a guide - so I was told. But he claims to have studied egyptology at school.
Also I have absolutely NO IDEA why I paid extra for the trip, we spent NYE on a felucca - so it’s not like an hotel that would charge a premium for the occasion.
I’m going back to GAP adventures - GOODBYE TopDeck.
