    • Cairo Tourist Problem !

      Cairo 1 hours ago

      Hello all !
      Me and a couple of undergrad students from Egypt are currently working on a project to provide a new service called Cairo pass which has the same idea of roma pass and Barcelona pass of providing a discounted pass or ticket that allows the tourists to enter major museums and attractions in Cairo without having to book a single ticket for each place .,...etc . The problem we are trying to solve here in our point of view is that international tourists visiting Egypt consume a lot of time figuring out touristic attractions to visit and they spend a lot of time in the queues waiting for the tickets prior to museum entrance . But this is just an observation we would like a more tangible proof of the problem such as numbers or evidence to support the problem or stories of previous Egypt visitors and what they think . Thanks in advance guys .

    • Safe Travel

      Cairo Jun 21, 2014 at 11:39 AM

      I am planning to come through Cairo for a few days with a girl friend. We are two US women and are wondering what the political situation is right now in Cairo and if travel is safe. I tend to feel that almost every place I have traveled to that "someone" said may be unsafe - upon arrival, I felt safe and sound and quite enjoyed myself. Any advice, pearls of wisdom would be welcomed.

      Visit to Al-Qarafa and Pyramids

      Cairo Jun 21, 2014 at 3:03 PM

      Hi,
      I will be spending a month in Cairo starting from the beginning of July. I will be there for a volunteering experience, but I am planning to make the most of my spare time from work. In particular, I would like to visit the Pyramids, Al-Qarafa and the other main attractions. As I am an Italian 21 year old girl travelling on my own, I would like to ask you to kindly recommend some reliable guides (possibly not too expensive). Also, if any other lone travellers are reading this, we could meet and go there as a group, since I've been told that although sites like al-Qarafa are fascinating, they are not exactly the best places to visit on one's own.
      Thank you very much in advance!

    • Libyan desert Visa?

      by Wodz Online Now Jan 11, 2010 at 1:07 PM

      Obtaining a Visa for Libya is near impossible these days. I will be wandering the eastern desert and wish to wander the Libyan desert as well (and thats all.. no cities in Libya), do you think it is safe to do so without a Libyan Visa? The area is so far remote that I highly doubt it would be a problem but I would rather be safe. Even if I could apply for a Visa I would, of course, not have any valid proof of flights into Libya, hotels.. nothing of that sort since this is a different situation.

      Does anyone have experience with this? I have to think that the majority of travels to Siwa also go to the Libyan/Great Sea desert... right?

      Any help is much appreciated!

      Hi,
      Just learned there is a tiny commercial airport at Siwa for exporting local crafts. Does anyone know of a charter company that flies from Luxor, Cairo or Alexandria to/from Siwa?

      by l-pagani Online Now Oct 21, 2006 at 1:18 PM

      We will be visiting Egypt next Spring by a standard camper (2x4 not 4x4). I cannot get proper information from the Egyptian travel agency which will accompany us regarding the status of the road Siwa to Bahariya,.i.e. whether it is or not feasible by camper (we will be a group of abt 10 rv). We understand 70 km are now paved, but waht about the remaining 300 km? We are accustomed to unpaved roads, but are unable to drive on sand. Is the road bottom hard or is it a sand track?? thank you for your help

      Short Desert trip

      by Mr_Furious Online Now Dec 16, 2005 at 1:54 AM

      Hi, In april I will visit Egypt and I would like to visit the desert and see it for myself.
      I am mainly interested in landscapes with sanddunes and oasises with palm trees, exploring them a little... Basically the stereotypical image one has of a desert. I will only have 3-4 days. Where do you recommend me to go? Siwa sounds good but far out.
      Are other places like Dakhla or Bahariyya also good for that typical desert trip or not.

      Who can help me?
      Thank you very much,
      Bert
