I'm gonna give this a 3 rating. Although I thought it was fine and didn't have any trouble sleeping, many others didn't get any sleep. Don't know if they just aren't used to train travel. Also, we were advised by our tour guide, an Egyptian who's been doing this for over 20 years, to bring our own dinner, and if we decided to eat what they served on the train to not eat certain items. For example, don't eat the fish, if you have the chicken make sure you take the skin off first. Yikes!
