      Hi, off to Hurghada in March - just wondering if mosquitoes are generally a problem in the resort areas (I've been to Alexandria/Cairo/Karnak and up the Nile, and they were there).  Will be taking repellant anyway but my son is a magnet for them so trying to find out in advance what we'll be up against!!  Thanks.

    • Storing luggage in Cairo

      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!

    • The local stands at the Pyramids in Giza

      by tiarynn Online Now Jul 11, 2010 at 6:35 PM

      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

      by guod7 Online Now 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
