I stopped here after visiting the British cemetery. An important note is that the gates are locked if muslim prayer is being performed so make sure you come at the right time. I was expecting a tourist trap type place but it was quite the...More

Good toilet facilities, you will need to take your own paper as with most Egyptian toilets! Might get a bit crowded with a full coach
