    • Royal holiday resort and Sharm El Sheikh

      Egypt Aug 26, 2015 at 10:25 AM


      My boyfriend and I (aged 20) are thinking of visiting Sharm El Sheikh in October, staying at the Royal Holiday resort.

      Before we book this, I have a few queries:

      1. Is it safe? I've seen a few postings on here regarding safety and just want a little bit of reassurance on the level of security. I'd hoped to also visit places such as the pyramids and my boyfriend would like go on quads/buggys in the desert, is visiting these sorts of places safe?
      2. Has anyone visited this hotel that can offer us a review or give us any tips?
      3. Does anyone have any recommendations for places to visit, restaurants, things to do during the day etc, this is only our second holiday abroad and I want to be as prepared as possible.
      4. Any other general tips would be welcomed.

      Thanks in advance,

      Airport to Giza using bus then metro, how to?

      Cairo Aug 19, 2015 at 9:02 AM

      I have all day in Cairo and was wanting to take the metro to Giza then back into downtown but I'm uncertain about which metro station is nearest the airport. I assume a bus would run to that metro station or I could take a taxi to the metro if need be.

      If this sounds like a bad plan feel free to tell me :)

    • 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 :)

    • spending money

      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.

    • Travelling to Dahab in October

      Egypt Aug 6, 2015 at 1:27 AM

      Hi there everyone,

      I asked this in another thread but lost it so i through i would ask again. I am travelling to Dahab in October to go scuba diving. I arrive late at night (very late) and my hotel has organised to collect myself and my friend a from Sharm airport. When i am going home, my flight is very last again. I am quite apprehensive about travelling at night from Sharm to Dahab and well a bit worried over all about going as there are many FOC warnings about the region. I was hoping to get some honest advise on whether the holiday is a good idea. I really want to go because ive heard some amazing things about Dahab, the people there and the scuba diving but again im just a bit worried about the situation there. Can anyone help me? has anyone been there recently and can advise me on what its like at the moment? I'd really appreciate some help :)

      Thanks so much!

      a day in Port Said, Egypt

      by crazyman2 Online Now Jun 23, 2011 at 12:31 PM


      We're on a Princess cruise in July/August and one of our stops is Port Said in Egypt.
      Now, Princess offer excursions down to see the Great Pyramid etc. It's many hours there and back by coach ---not our way of seeing such wonders! We shall visit the Sphinx and co. on another trip, maybe land based or even a river cruise.

      So, there we will be in Port Said for a day, 06:00 until 20:00 and okay we can knock 30 minutes off at each end for dis/embarking.
      What can we do there? I've looked at the VT Any ideas?

      Yes, we know about ---any VT ideas would be appreciated!

      If we have no luck then we'll just need to stay on board the Pacific Princess and indulge ourselves ---but we'd rather not!

      Is there anyone who can tell me if there are some ferries from the East bank to the West bank of the Suez canal ? If yes, where can I find information on them (schedules, prices for cars and bicycles).
      I am planning a bicycle trip, with a jeep as back up behind, from Belgium to Kenya for the promotion of the SoCoFAS trust(non profit organisation).
