    • Female Solo with 6 yr old Daughter in Cairo?

      Egypt Nov 25, 2014 at 4:20 PM

      I am considering taking my 6 yr old daughter to Cairo for a few days. I've traveled solo as a female before but not with my daughter to this region of the world. I am fairly certain we'd be ok, but am I correct? I am aware of general safety when traveling, but should I be especially concerned in Cairo?

    • Good travel company to book an 8 day trip to Egypt

      Egypt Nov 20, 2014 at 3:44 PM

      I'm looking for a good reputable travel company to book an 8 day trip to Egypt. I have been looking and so many seem like cons. Not including entrance fees etc. I was there last March with America Israel tours and it was a huge disappointment. We drove by the pyramids and looked at them through the bus windows. I want a hands on tour. I'm active and in excellent health. Can also field strip an AK47,lol. I'm not afraid of adventure but I'm only going there one more time and want it to be great. Tour company recommendations???

    • Bus/ Shared transport from Luxor to Marsa Alam

      Marsa al `Alam Nov 17, 2014 at 5:01 AM

      Hi, I hope somebody could help!

      I plan to go to Marsa Alam from Luxor (13 Dec 2014). I've been asking around for buses from Luxor to Marsa Alam, but have been told that there are no buses, only private transportation.

      Is this really the case? I am travelling alone, so the price quoted for private transport is quite expensive (cheapest being 80 euro).

      Are there no other means to get to Marsa Alam?

    • Grace period tourist entry visa

      Egypt Nov 5, 2014 at 11:05 AM

      Hello, I need up to date information. It seems that there used to be a grace period for visa extension, does this still exist? I would probably leave Egypt only about a week over. I have also read that one can just pay a 150 pound fine at the airport. This would be simpler than the visa extension process. Thank you for current info!

    • Orfi marriage

      Sharm El Sheikh Oct 15, 2014 at 2:17 PM

      I came last year to sharm and I stayed with a friend so he said had to get an orfi to do so, there was no sexual intent as we didn't do that it was just pure friendship, he kept the papers and didn't give one to me, now I'm worried as I'm coming back in November to stay with my boyfriend we have been dating for 9months this is my first trip back to see him, and he says that we need an orfi, this doesn't surprise me after last time, but I'm worried that the one I got last year can prevent this from happening

      Thank you to all that have responded to previous questions. One final one, if I drink tea/coffee in the hotel I presume this is made with boiled tap water, is this safe to drink or should I make my own using bottled water.

      Hello, I am a OAP visiting Sharm in November for the first time, I'm thinking of staying at the Nubian Island hotel 'all inclusive' and wondered if this is suitable as I'd like to relax without a lot of noise. Also, which of the local drinks are best to keep to.

      How far is this hotel from Nabq Bay, Soho Square, Mercato Shopping Arcade and what are the best things to see and do. Also, I'm worried about what to eat and drink to avoid an upset stomach. Yours sincerely, Dave

      Sharm El Sheikh Oct 5, 2014 at 1:23 PM

      Hi, going on the 1st of November for 7 nights, will be booking in the next 2 weeks.

      Have never been so would like to know where I should book for all inclusive and are there any white sandy beaches and if so then where?

      Had a colleague who stayed at the rixos and paid a bit more for a better room and restaurant upgrade. Would this be recommended.

      Been a long year so just want to lie on the beach, am hoping for clear blue water and white sand, is this possible?

      Many thanks
