    • Moulid Abu El-Haggag

      Luxor Yesterday

      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

    • 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!

    • Evening entertainment

      Sharm El Sheikh Apr 19, 2015 at 5:41 AM

      Hi,

      we have just returned from our 1st trip to sharm, staying at the coral sea holiday village.
      It was an amazing holiday but the only thing it lacked was adult entertainment in the evenings, i.e. professional shows etc.
      Can anyone tell me if there are any all inclusive hotels in sharm were they do have good evening entertainment so you don't have to venture out of the hotel.

      Thanks

      Hi everyone,

      With the ongoing political stresses and terrorist threats is Cairo safe nowadays for tourists? What about a bus tour from Hurghada to Cairo? Would that be safe?

      Egypt Apr 8, 2015 at 11:52 AM

      hello! Me and my friend are planning to travel in El Gouna near Hurghada in August 2015. We are both 18 an are going to a summer camp which means, we will be mostly at the same place all the time. But our parents are worried about safety. What is situation in Egypt right now? Is it possible to get much worse till August? is there danger for terrorist attack? Will it be dangerous to go there? I think not, but it would be nice to hear what you think. Thank you very much!

      Pyramids of Giza Aug 5, 2014 at 3:38 AM

      Hi all, my family and I are going to Luxor to celebrate my father's 70th and we are coming into Cairo from London. 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?

      Thanks a lot!

      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.

      Many thanks,

      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.
