We are a group of 5 going in to Cairo off a cruise for the day. Originally planned on grabbing a taxi from the gate but am now considering the train. There is a fair bit of contradictory information in the posts I have read, so a couple of questions.
1 Plan on getting trhe 8am train. What station does this depart from and how long to get there from the dock?
2 Will we be able to buy tickets on the day and how long will this take approximatley?
3 Plan on getting a late train back 9 or 10pm, will we be able to get a taxi to the dock easily and safely? Also to enter the port as I recall some places lock up at night?
