any suggestions or recommendations for an overnighter to luxor. i am looking for a good operator that uses good hotels when we visit in june. also is it bets to go via coach or plane ( i can't see a train option)
I just need someone to go to Luxor with, as my husband doesn't want me to go alone. We went in Jan. so he imagines the hassle I may get. So I need someone that wants to do their own thing like I want to, and just meet up for major stuff and to have someone as a source of help. I have Egyptian friends there and I know I will be fine, but it will reassure my husband if I get a travel partner. I'm interested in June. I'm not talking about sharing a hotel room.
I have lived here for many years and have a villa and a flat here. I lve here about 7 months of the year. I am aged 70 and in reasonable health, but with some pre existing conditions (high blood pressure for which I am on medication and some other (small) things . I am British and do not have medical insurance because the cost would be prohibitive and the insurance company would never pay up anyway. I have had to seek medical help on a couple of occasions. Once when i cut my leg and the other time for a small infection (from sea water) in my ear
I went to El Gouna Hospital and initially they wanted to charge me 50 Euros for a consultation only. When I showed my villa contract to them , the cost was promptly reduced to 60LE
Can anyone advise me authoritatively about sat (God forbid), if i had a heart attack or suffered a broken leg and had to be carted off to hospital. Are the fees they charge discretionary? Would I have to sign something or produce my bank card for a swingeing payment to be made before I would be stabilised ?
Is there an insurance scheme in this country which is fairly honest, reliable and not cost prohibitive or can one pay into a hospital scheme where accidents and emergencies are covered?

I am planning to backpack in Egypt sometime this November with my fiance. Please give me any details that would help me. Expenses. Food. Warnings. Places to visit. how many days would be required to cover Cairo, Alexandria, Hurghada and Aswan. Do I need to take the help of a local travel agency. Last year we backpacked through central and Southern Sri Lanka for 11 days without the help of any travel agency. Is this possible in Cairo? Please give me some information on the above and any additional information would be really helpful.
I am in Cairo tutoring children English, and I have lots of free time to discover the city but I am weary as a woman, of doing it alone, does anyone fancy an exploring companion? I'm here now so please let me know soon :)

I have recently split up with my partner, so it looks like im going alone, which is a first for me and im a little apprehensive about it. Does anybody have any experiences of Jaz Mirabel Beach as a lone traveller. Or are there any other lone travellers going on 5th May who would like to meet up?
So, we are going to Sharm around the 1st of June. I'm Egyptian but I don't live there so I'm not too used to it although I've been to Sharm every summer. What's the BEST resort in sharm? in terms of clubs/bars, people and cleanliness.
I was considering sunrise or Hilton sharks bay or the ritz but I need a place where it's lively, clean and not too expensive. Any suggestions?
PS. If anyone is around at that time, it would be nice to chill, my brother and I can show you around.

Hello i am going to Sharm for Easter,i will stay to Melia Sharm Resort....does anyone know somethink about this hotel? it is safe now is Egipt? we are just two women,is this a problem?
We are two travellers coming to Egypt from Aqaba to Taba around Oct 2013. We are interested in someone arranging travel to Sharm with stops at St Catherines and Mt Sinai. From Sharm we plan to fly to Cairo. Then: Alexandria, Siwa, White Desert, Luxor, Aswan (Aswan to Luxor two day nile cruise with stops) and return to Cairo for departure. Of course, we want to see the normal tourist sights including Abu Simbel, etc. We also would like to see some of the more out of the way locations such as dier el medina, as discussed in this thread. Any recommendations for villages, oasis and other unique Egyptian locations which might provide a special experience would be appreciated. We want a reliable a reputable service as my partner is a little concerned about the current political situation.
Who would you suggest that can offer a program that brings in the usual tourists sites with some unique experiences such as camping in the White Desert? We are not looking for first class or budget but something in between.
Me and my friend are going to Sharm el Sheikh for a week in early may. And i just wonder how the markets are there. I've heard that it's almost imposseble for tourists to go there, cause everybody just pulling you to make you buy from their stuff.
We're just planing to have a relax vacation. But if we feel to, is it safe to go out? And how is the nightlife there?
And is there anyone else who's going to sharm in may?
sounds like a daft question, but do they still require you to declare goods in sharm airport as we are taking 2 phones, 2 cameras and 2 tablets, could really do without having these confiscated. and does it take long to do as we will have a transfer coach waiting for us when we arrive?
Iam Egyptian male, i will stay in sharm from 1of may to 25 any girl there during this time i can share with her the time ,thanks
We are going to Egypt in a few days. The turmoil has kept us from booking our cruise from Luxor to Aswan. Also, most cruise seems to start on Wednesday, but we won't arrive at Luxor till 2pm and need a cruise that start on Thursday. Would you recommend that we book the cruise ahead of time? Or can we go to Luxor and find the cruise there? Any recommendation for cruise operator that you used and like? Thanks in advance.
How much cash should I bring? I will only be in the country for about four weeks - the first three weeks I will be staying in a hotel that has been covered by my trip fees as are most of my meals and the last week will be spent with a family friend. Also, should I exchange my money in the US or when I arrive in Cairo?
