Don’t go here, the guide, which we booked through the hotel, is out to scam you along with the travel agency (MISR). Don’t use them and don’t go here... liars and cheaters and they won’t let you leave!

Beautiful store, staff make you feel very welcome. We thought we were just going to do some browsing and $150 later we left with perfumes we didn't necessarily want but felt pressured to buy. No way of knowing actual quality or grade of perfumes purchased.

If you absolutely have to buy something, bargain and be prepared to walk away. They will give you the price you want because they are desperate for business. And do not let them package anything without a thoroughly inspecting, smelling and watch them wrap it...More
