Cairo (Port Said)
City Tour Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
This was the highlight of our cruise. If you have not been, then you should go on the ships tour. $400 for the two of us and worth every penny. Cairo is dirty but should be seen. The Egyptians were friendly no security problems at all. Armed guards on coaches and at Pyramids. Giza and the Pyramids were spoilt by the sandstorm and the rubbish. The beggars and sellers were pushy but very easily delt with, no problem. The Belley dancer came from Scotland, which spoilt the image a bit.


Pyramids Rating: 5+ out of 5+
No sign of the troubles.Armed guards on coaches and at Pyramids. Giza and the Pyramids were spoilt by the sandstorm and the rubbish. The beggars and sellers were pushy but very easily delt with, no problem.

A must visit once!

Lisbon
City Tour Rating: 2.0 out of 5+
A good Flemenco Dancein Malaga which was the substitute for Lisbon. The quide was hopeless. it was very expensive for an afternoon outing. Could have walked off the ship and around the town for free.
