Trip by coach is about 3.5 hrs long, in convoy with security on board, lots of police checks and speed humps en route so no chance to snooze on the way back. However, Karnak Temple and the tombs are worth seeing. Tip: told to use the wc on the coach as facilities not great in Egypt. Understatement! Queues are enormous too.... Read Less

If you have to drive 4 1/2 hours each way, you should not have it as a stop. Particularly in excruciating heat. Not worth it. Would much prefer to see Luxor by land (I know an overnight was offered, but it really should be the only offer).... Read More

Very good tours and so much to see. Some walking and steep in and out of the tombs. Heat can be quite a factor.

it looked like we had docked next door to a cement factory, safaga is used as a point to visit the pyramids etc - the tours take 12 or 14 hours = not worth it in my opinion, if you want to see the wonders of Egypt then do a nile cruise ... Read More
it looked like we had docked next door to a cement factory, safaga is used as a point to visit the pyramids etc - the tours take 12 or 14 hours = not worth it in my opinion, if you want to see the wonders of Egypt then do a nile cruise as the wonders are on your door step some people went into safaga and said there was nothing much there, the taxi fares varied from $40 to $5 for the same journey so take my advice and barter or stay on board as many people go on all day trips and the ship is nearly deserted Read Less

This place is a DUMP! (As is Sharm) (But then it is purely there to get people bussed to Luxor.) WHY do Americans pay a taxi driver $50 for a trip to town that a local would pay 50 cents for? No wonder the Egyptians love tourists! (Both ... Read More
This place is a DUMP! (As is Sharm) (But then it is purely there to get people bussed to Luxor.) WHY do Americans pay a taxi driver $50 for a trip to town that a local would pay 50 cents for? No wonder the Egyptians love tourists! (Both my children have studied in Eqypt, so we know what the rates are.) I think people were shocked by the filth and squalor, but having known Egypt for a bit now, We were expecting it! Read Less

Had a walk into the town which is a fair distance from the port area. Neatly presented Taxis will pick you up inside the Dock area but be warned they ask you to get out at the gate entrance and make you get into an old people carrier. Not that much to see unless you do the trip to the tombs. Read Less

this was a very noisy and busy industial port which was not very clean, but it did not spoil it for us as we got used to the noise of the beeping lorries.

The port of Muscat was cancelled just after we booked this cruise and the port of Fujairah was substituted. Fujairah is a major re-fuelling port and like the majority of UAE countries - hot, dry, desert and rugged mountains. As we arrived on a Friday (Muslim holy day) we opted to take a short tour to visit the local mosques, fort, and Friday market. We would not put Fujairah on our "Must see" list of places to visit!
