    • Tour agencies

      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!

      Luxor May 4, 2015 at 1:54 PM

      I'll be in Luxor the first week in June (hot!) and came across some information about the Moulid of Abu El-Haggag. I understand that it's a huge celebration and, if I'm counting back from Ramadan correctly, it should occur about June 4. Does anyone know if that's correct? And is it something that I want to reconfigure my travel plans to Dendera and Abydos to see? Thanks

We were thinking to stay in Cairo for the day (flight comes in early morning) to go and see the pyramids before heading down to Luxor area. Could anyone please tell me where we could leave our luggage? I've heard that the airport doesn't have this service but that some hotels might?

      Hello,

      I traveled to Cairo a few years ago and bought a beautiful stone cat statue from one of the local vendors. Sadly, it broke during the trip home despite my best efforts to protect it. Is there a vendor sells these cats who may have his items listed online? I would love to replace it.

      Horses and riding

      Pyramids of Giza Apr 22, 2009 at 10:47 AM

      HI
      I would like to experience the pyramids from an angle or location not full of tourists jostling for space. Riding a well kept horse out and around the pyramids seems like an option. What stables or vendors can anyone recommend? FB Stables and Prestige Stables are the two I have been looking at recently. Their prices seem to be about65 US for a half day.
      On these rides can a person get close to the pyramids?
      Any other hints would be appreciated.
      Thanks

    • Bahariya - hiring an ordinary taxi

      Bawiti Sep 27, 2007 at 12:36 AM

      Hi. Does anybody know if it is at all possible and reasonably easy to hire an ordinary taxi (meaning a normal 2WD passenger car) for a day at Bawiti in the Bahariya oasis? Where should I ask?
      I would like to use it for a slow trip from Bahariya to Farafra with stops along the way. Knowing that the Black and White Deserts and majority of sites like Crystal mountain are just next to the paved road I would like to avoid the expense and over-organization of the jeep trips and enjoy it at my own pace. How much I should expect to pay? Thanks.
