    • Halfaya Sollum War cemetary

      Egypt Jan 4, 2017 at 5:33 PM

      I am considering a trip to Egypt maybe in the next year or so. I will most likely do an organised to see the pyramids and the Nile, etc. While I am there Inwould also like to visit the Halfaya Sollum War cemetary as my great uncle is buried there. (He was killed in action in WW2)
      I know you can get buses from Alexandria or I was also considering staying a night at Mersa Matruh which is closer. I am just not sure about travelling there on my own as it's very close to the Libyan border. Has anyone been there or have any suggestions?

    • US citizen transiting

      Egypt Dec 31, 2016 at 1:48 PM

      Do I need to obtain a visa in advance? I am flying from Johannesburg to Copenhagen via Cairo. Plane lands at 5:35 a.m. and next flight leaves at 10 a.m. US citizen. I have read differing reports that say I need to have a visa but cannot determine if it can be obtained online ahead of time or upon arrival. I know the policy changed effective May 15, 2015 saying you had to obtain in advance but then that was changed until an electronic system was to be put in place.

      Two nights in Cairo

      Cairo Dec 25, 2016 at 6:07 AM

      Before joining a Nile cruise I'll spent two nights in Cairo. While the days are planned for the major sights, I wonder, wether there is something to do in the evening... Makes it sense to visit some of the other sights (especially the coptic or islamic ones, which I can't visit during daytime) after sunset? Or what would you recommend to do in the evening?

      Safety - Query

      Egypt Dec 27, 2016 at 7:57 AM

      Egypt is not going away from mind and we have been waiting for a while for safety to return. It is concerning reading an incident on 11th Dec. However, wanting to know from anyone who travelled recently how is the experience. We would limit Cairo now but has always been interested in visiting Luxor too - what are best options?

    • Bahariya - hiring an ordinary taxi

      by vaclavv Online Now 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.
