    • Hurghada to Cairo (Giza pyramids)

      Egypt Sep 25, 2016 at 3:22 AM

      My partner and I are travelling to Hurghada in October for a week and had our hopes up to travel to Cairo to see the Giza pyramids. We have seen day trips available via flying, however, much to our disappointment, the hotel we are staying in have advised due to safety reasons, we cannot book a trip with them.

      Can anyone recommend a safe/good company to book a day trip to the pyramids (preferably flying there) so that we can fulfil our dreams of seeing the great culture this country has to offer?

      Any comments would be greatly appreciated!

      Thank you

    • alexandria and pyramids

      Egypt Sep 21, 2016 at 6:18 AM

      I'm visiting Egypt this October. I'm gonna stay in Cairo for 05 days.
      I'd love to visit the pyramids as well as the light house in Alexandria if it still exists and other anciant sites.
      my concern is , is it better to see the pyramids on the second day since i'll get to cairo late in theevening the first day or is it better to visit them the last day? also i'll book a hotel in Gezira or downtown cairo , which one is better? what's the best means of transportation to get from there to the pyramids.
      as far as Alexandria is concerned. Is one day enough sightseeing and what are the places i should go to. Do i go to Alexandria by bus or by train.
      thank you in advance for your valuable advice

      not just antiquities

      Egypt Sep 1, 2016 at 11:24 AM

      So I'm excitedly waiting for a planned and scheduled trip to Cairo and a Nile cruise in October. I realize that most of my time in Eqypt will be spent looking at things that are thousands of years old. But I would also like to experience modern life in Egypt--at least a little! I hate the idea of visiting a country and not getting any idea of what it's like to be a citizen in current times. And while most of my time is scheduled for me on the tour, I do have a couple of days with hours of free time--one full half day in Cairo for instance, and a morning in Aswan.

      I was especially interested in touring/ visiting the Parliament meeting house...just to see the building. I'm traveling solo on this trip (and that's why I booked a tour package), and I don't speak much Arabic (mostly please and thank you). I understand that I'm not really going to get a true idea of common life among the people of Cairo by spending one afternoon, but do you have a suggestion of how I could maybe get a few glimpses of "real life" while I am there? I'm truly fascinated by other cultures. Do I just go to a plaza in the middle of town, eat from food vendors and observe? Do I find a "visitor's bureau" of some sort and watch a presentation?

      Meeting locals

      by succotash Online Now Jun 29, 2011 at 5:19 AM

      As previously independant travellers we've been seduced by a bargain flight/b&b at a resort hotel at the end of July.
      If the boys (15 & 13) want to escape the compound and take a bus into Dahab to find some lads for a kickabout, is there a piece of open ground where the sporty locals tend to hang out? Alternatively are there local housing areas within walking distance of the gates of the Hilton?
      Assuming they need to carry ID, I take it that a photocopy of their passport and a contact number of the hotel sufficient? Are there public phones on the streets if they have a problem and if so what change do they need to carry to use them?
      The boys only have a word or two of Arabic, but do they teach either English or French in schools here?
      Apologies for the jumbled myriad of queries and thanks in advance for any help you can give.

    • Sea Pioneer Dive Center - Dahab

      by rinoa Online Now May 16, 2009 at 4:52 AM


      After checking and exhcnaging emails back and forth with several dive centers based in Dahab, Sea Pioneer Dive center offered the cheapest prices. They were also very kind and replied positively to our personal request for the diving. So before deciding I wanted to ask if any of you knows this place? Is it as good as it looks? Any other recommendations? I all checked some popular centers such as penguen, fantasia etc but didnt like their options.

      Sinai Divers also offers a good price (35 euro per person for introductory dive), would you recommend this one?

      thanks in advance

    • Where to go in Gulf of Aquaba

      by spacecandi123 Online Now Oct 11, 2007 at 2:53 PM

      Hi I hope to travel to Sharm El Sheihk in a couple of weeks. Its a last minute trip and I haven't really got much of a clue what I'm doing so any advice would be really appreciated. My plan is to get there, spend a couple of days relaxing, learning to dive and hopefully some yoga. I'm flexible where I go but want to avoid any really touristy, over developed and degraded areas. I'll pop over to israel for a few days and then come back for more sea, sun and swim afterwards. I don;t really plan to do any major hiking around as I only have about 8 days there.

      Can anyone advise me on the best area to head for. I'm a woman travelling alone so somewhere relatively safe and welcoming would be good. Is dahab the best place on the coast?

      Does anyone know how long it takes to travel from Sharm airport to Dahab? and Dahab to Eilat? and finaly, is it a better idea to book accommodation in advance or search on arrival?

      I really hope someone out there has got some advice for me.

      Thanks for your help!

      I am a very beach person, not interested in snorkling, because I cannot snorkle. I am planning a trip to the Read Sea area, and I would like to know if the beach in Dahab worths going there. It looks quite brown in the pictures! Is Sharm more beautifull? I hate package tours and it seems that this is the only option for Sharm. Could anybody advise?
