Nevertheless, we highly recommend this tour, as this is an opportunity to see this moon like landscape – a beautiful natural wonder.

Transfer from El Maunib to Downtown Cairo need to be self-arranged - Though, there are multiple taxis available at bus station area.
  • Transfers from Cairo/Hurghada Bus stand and Railway Station to Hotel are not included and can't be arranged, due to Chaotic atmosphere and train/buses run either late of early then their scheduled time. Though multiple taxi options are available outside public stations. From Luxor and Aswan that’s not an issue!!
