      Current situation

      Hurghada Jan 9, 2016 at 12:42 PM

      Hi is anyone out in Hurghada now or has been recently - just wondering what the current situation in with regard to security at hotels/airport. Does it feel safe? We're due to go in March but after the attack on tourists at Bella Vista hotel yesterday we are slightly concerned. I know nowhere is 100% but would appreciate any feed back on how people are finding it out there at the moment. Thanks

      Are these the only locations in Hurghada?

      El Nasr Road.
      Redcon Mall Sheraton Road.

      Also, is it possible to carry more than 5000LE through Egypt with permission (if I declare at airport)?

      Or could I open a bank account in Egypt and transfer money?

    • Egypt Travel

      Hurghada Dec 17, 2015 at 9:07 AM

      Hello

      I'm due to fly out to Sharm/Hurghada in March, but would like to know how safe it is to travel around Egypt. Having only visited Sharm, I am keen to explore more of the country. I'm aware of flights from Cairo, Hurghada, Sharm. Would someone be able to advise the best method of transport for the following: Marsa Alam, Aswan, Alex, Luxor, Cairo.

      Thank you.

    • Solo female traveller

      Hurghada Aug 1, 2015 at 2:37 PM

      I am travelling to Hurghada alone in 6 weeks time. I guess it was a sort of spur of the moment booking, but now I cant wait! I have been to egypt 5 times already, butthis is my first time travelling abroad alone, and I really want to experience more of the real egypt. . I've done nightlife, sitting by the pool in a resort, swimming with dolphins, go karting, watersports, I've even had a tattoo done across there. But I want to see the stars in the middle of the desert at night, I want to see dolphins in the sea where they belong.... Basically, i'm only staying a week this time round, I'm not on a huge budget so any trips involving flying are out the window this time around.This is more of a test the waters trip to see how i go travelling alone, but i'd like to squeeze in some adventures, just wondering if it's safe to do it alone as a 28 year old scottish female. I plan to only book through tour guides going in groups, I wont be out wandering anywhere alone, I'm quite a sociable person I dont intend to spend a week in silence hiding away.There are so many scaremongers out there, and I've already been told a million times how "dangerous" egypt is, but from past experience there, its nowhere near as bad as people think as long as you are sensible and careful. Anyway, If any of you lovely people can suggest some fun, must do/ must see/reasonably priced adventures I can squeeze into my trip, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance :)

      Hurghada Jul 30, 2015 at 4:59 PM

      hello I am travelling to Hurghada soon, will be staying for 2 weeks with wife and son.
      could anyone give me a rough idea of spending money needed?
      we are staying all inclusive but will not remain in the hotel for the full 2 weeks.
      Also I understand that we can only take £5000 LE each in to the country so guessing the country is relatively cheap.

      thanks for your time.

      Hurghada May 31, 2015 at 10:22 AM

      Dear all,

      I've already searched on trip advisor and throughout the internet for reliable Activities and Tour Agencies in Hurghada but it's hard to get consistent and reliable views. I'm looking to take part of the following:
      - a bus trip to Cairo with sightseeing of the Giza Pyramids;
      - a trip to the Gifton Islands/Orange Bay or any other suggestions that may top these two;
      - Quad biking with a taste of the Bedouin tea and village + camel riding;

      These are the main ones.

      Also, do you suggest booking this online or booking them upon arrival?

      Many Thanks!

    • Egypt 2015 trip concerns

      Hurghada Apr 30, 2015 at 2:30 AM

      Hello! Me and my boyfriend are planning to go on holiday to Hurghada in June 2015 but I’m a bit concerned about whether this is the best time to go to Egypt specially because we also want to visit the pyramids in Cairo. We are thinking of joining an excursion from Hurghada to Cairo by bus and according to what I read it’s 7 hours distance and I am a bit scared of what could happen during the journey.
      Anyone who have been recently to Hurghada and Cairo can tell me if it is safe to visit? Did you witness the downsides of the political distress and protests?
      Also, provided that we do go to Egypt in 2015 do you recommend buying activity packs from UK agencies or by contacting the local ones?
      Many Thanks!
