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 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?

Hallo, I will be in two week for 7 days in Hurghada. I am planning a bike trip from Hurghada along the coast to the south. South of Safaga I will turn west into the dessert. I am like to know if I can travel as a biker along the coast of the red sea or do I have to expect road barrier, which force me to join a convoy or prevent me from continuation of my journey. Does anyone has experience with staying over night in the dessert concerning wild living dogs or other animals? best regards from Erlangen/Germany Bernie

Any advice on how best to get from Taba to Hurghada in one day is welcome...K
Hi there, we (2xadults / 3x18 year olds) are visiting Egypt for the first time and staying in Sahl Haseesh for 2 weeks in July and wondered what is the best thing to do about currency? I have read loads of forums and everyone advises different things. So, can you please let me know if it is best to take LE, or best to take GBP and exchange them over in Egypt? Rate here is approx LE8 for each £1. Any idea of rates in Egypt, particularly in hotels?? Also, is it best to book trips before travel, or pay in LE when there? Any advice much appreciated. Many thanks

I will have 3 days in Hurghada at the end of my tour in May 2011. I am curious about transport to Sharm el Sheikh for a day trip (honestly, to hit the third Egyptian Hard Rock Cafe...) It doesn't look that far away, but it is on the other side of the Gulf. Can anyone provide information on ferries? (I assume there must be one) I Googled it, but could find no specific information... Thank you in advance for your insight - my trip is still 8 months away, but I am super-excited!!
