hi. I am traveling to gambia in January and I plan on hiring a guide for the week to show me around. I wonder if someone could tell me how much I should pay for a guide per day and if anyone knows a good honest trustworthy guide whom I could contact when I arrive. thankyou for your time.
Is it safe to take the route from Setif to Batna after 6pm in Desember? Are there any risky places on the way? Is it maybe better to travel next morning? Thank you in advance for your answers!
Hi does anybody know if Sharm gets busy Christmas and New Year? We are travelling as a family My husband and I, 2 girls 16 & 17 staying at le royal Holiday resort!

As I'm getting a bit bored reading questions about Egypt and safety, I thought I'd ask a question that's going to be important to me in a year or two. We're planning on a return visit to Egypt when the Grand Egyptian Museum is opened. It was originally slated for 2014, then 2015 but news seems to have dried up. Does any know how things are going?
I'm hoping there's not been as much building work at Giza since Khufu turned to his chief architect and said something like "y'know, I really fancy something big here. I was thinking in terms of triangles...", but news on progress seems very scarce since late 2012.
To all seasoned Egyptologists here.
I am planning to visit Cairo in January 2014 for a week or so and I intend to cover Cairo, Nile Cruise (Aswan/Hurghada), Luxor, Alexandria and Sharm El Sheikh.
I know one can not foretell the future, but considering the current situation, does it look like to be a good time for the foreign tourists to visit this summer?
Also, can anyone help me out to give a readymade itinerary for 7 days and a rough indication of cost?
Taxi from PE to Kenton-on-Sea, how much ?

Since I have read about the fee hike of Mozambique visa and one of the cheapest options is to obtain here at Mbabane, I must ask the following questions once for all - for other potential travelers in the future.
I love to hear from someone who recently applied visa at Mbabane and traveled onto Mozambique.
My questions are as follows:
1. Exact address of the Mozambique Embassy (Consulate or High Commission) at Mbabane, Swaziland
2. Opening hours (I read visa application submission is like between 0900 and 1200 and collection is between 1400 and 1600?)
3. Most interest of all, visa fee paid - please also mention your nationality :-)
I plan to travel with my family to Cairo and Luxor next summer. Will it be safe? We would be traveling from the United States.
What's the weather like in January
And do they have premium drinks in the rui hotels
Hi, My partner and I are traveling to Sharm for 2 weeks in January. I have checked the FCO and can see that Sharm is Green, however I am a little concerned at the news that the change comes on the same day that a report revealed that police in Egypt had foiled a plot by al-Qaida-linked militants to attack tourists in the popular Red Sea coastal resort of Sharm el-Sheikh. The Mirror said the attack, involving firearms and rocket-propelled grenades, had been planned for Christmas.
I have booked, and cannot get a refund, so I want to make sure that it will be safe to go, I don't want a holiday worrying, or worse!
In February I am going to Abidjan for a special reason, to make pictures of busses. It is my hobby to make these pictures of busses that are exported from my homecountry, the Netherlands, to other countries. Because my knowledge of the French language is very poor, I am looking for an English speaking car or taxidriver who can drive me around and translate for me if busdrivers have questions. Is there a way to arrange this from abroad? I will be in Abidjan from Feb 5 untill Feb 10 2014.
Thanks for the help and best regards,
Hello, good evening. I'm planning to travel to Tanzania next year (aroun March-April) for an anthropological research. My plan is to go to Mwanza and stay at least 4 weeks. But I have some concerns, especially when it comes to safety (I will be travelling by myself and I'm a 24 year-old woman) and accomodation (since I'll be staying for at least a month I can't afford to stay in a 5 star hotel)... Any tips, comments or suggestions? Thank you very much!
I am planing to obtain visa to Mozambique in Johannesburg as I heard the same-day processing can be done at a reasonable cost (USD20?) and am sadly a bit confused with the opposing information as to the location of Mozambique Embassy.
18 Hurlingham Road, Sandton
252 Jepee Street
Which is correct?
Info for opening hours, fees and tips are much appreciated!
My questions are as follows:
1. I understand many minibus taxis to other cities in South Africa and the neighboring countries depart from Park Station. Is Park Station a railway station, not a bus terminal? Exactly from where would I catch minibus then?
2. Does minibus taxi run to Mafikeng? How early should I be there? 4am? 7am? Or even 12 noon?

can anyone tell me of any evening shows for a family party in fez. age range from 22 to 70 maybe in a hotel
I am travelling to Zambia in March for 6 weeks, stopping in London for 4 nights, and then going to Vietnam for 1 month. I know I want a Gregory backpack, since they fit me extremely well. I also know I want around 50L to 60L backpack. I've been looking at the Gregory Cairn 58 and the Gregory Deva 60. I'm having a hard time deciding which one to take with me! I like that the Cairn has more ventilation in the waistbelt and harness, but am unsure of all the different compartments and thin shoulder straps (since I will most likely be wearing tank tops/T'shirts, will it dig in?)? I like the Deva because it has the extra lumbar support and the easy accessible water bottle holder, but am unsure about all the different features and that it has no rain cover included. At this point, any advice/recommendations/suggestions/comments would help.
Dear all, this is my first time, backpaking far away from home. I will be travelling late December to Morocco. Starting from Casablanca - Rabat - Marrakech - Merzouga - Fez.
I've already made a research on how to travel from Rabat - Marrackech (by train), I was wondering how can I Travel from Merzouga to Fez. Is there any bus that can go straight from Merzouga to Fez? How long will it take.
Since I'm going to travel in late December, how's the weather during that time? should I also bring winter jacket, sweater and boots. I know this is a silly question, is it possible to wear crocs ?
any suggestion of budget riyadh or hostel in Marrakech and Fez? US$20 max.
In Fez, I'd like to travel to volubilis, is there any 1 day tour from Fez
Will very appreciate of your kindness anwers
My friend and I are in our 20s and are coming to Sharm for NYE. Does anyone know if Pacha or Space are any good on NYE. what about the hotels, is there one that does a great show? Thanks
We are family of 3 (self, husband and 8 yo son) planning a trip to Egypt during April 2014. We are in the UK. To make things easy on ourselves (and safe) I plan to use Tour operators for most if not all sight seeing in Egypt. I'm looking for help to finalize the itinerary before I book the flight and hotels.
Day 1 - arrive from UK to Cairo late in the evening
Day 2- Viator's one day tour of pyramids, Khan market and Cairo museum. Overnight sleeper train to Luxor
Day 3 - 8 Viator's five day Nile Cruise that covers Luxor West Bank, east bank, Esna and Aswan. Overnight train back to Cairo
Day 9 - return to UK
1) this is the first time I will be using a tour operator - primarily due to security considerations. Viator was an easy choice but if you can suggest a reliable operator who will provide a similar sort of experience and variety, please suggest
2) keeping Cairo to just 1 day due to the ongoing political issues. Can you suggest a good hotel in Cairo?
3) anything else I have failed to consider in putting this trip together?
has anybody ordered a rug from perles shopping centre on the reccomendation of the thomas cook reps. and have you received it in the uk
