Planning Your Visit

  • There is so much political unrest in Egypt.  Is it safe to go there?

    Terrorists continue to plan attacks in Egypt. Foreigners could be targeted in tourist resorts or other locations frequented by foreigners. Be aware of your surroundings at all times and use heightened caution to avoid unsafe situations.

  • Should I follow a specific dress code here?

    Egypt is an Islamic country. For woman, it's generally best to dress modestly, keeping knees and shoulders covered and not to wear figure hugging clothing. Women visiting religious sites are advised to cover their hair and neck with a scarf and take shoes off if required. Men can wear shorts and a normal style t-shirt.

  • Much of Egypt is desert -- how do I travel across this?

    Four-wheel drive vehicles are really the only way and be prepared for a bumpy ride. Perhaps take anti-nausea tablets or any other remedy you use to prevent travel sickness.

We had a great time on this tour. Our guide Mohammed was very knowledgeable and took great care of our group. The drivers did a great job as well, they drove very safe. The team made sure that there were enough snacks and drinks on the minibus as well. The trip is quite exhausting, but with such a good team you will definitely enjoy all of it.

I had an excellent experience.. I was picked up from the hotel dot in time and dropped at the airport and upon landing the guide with the driver was waiting and took me for a fabulous ride of history & archeology.. Gud cud definitely have been provided at a better place however the overall experience was simply superb

Great trip. Nana the tour guide was funny and knowledgeable. Expensive but worth every penny. Had a slight issue with cancelled flight but was rescheduled for a later day. Communication was great from start to finish.

Absolutely worth seeing trip !! It was very exhausting, but it was totally worth it! The care was great!

Pick us on time at the airport. Clean vehicle with A/C.
