    • Best Egypt City for Luxury Resorts

      Egypt Nov 17, 2016 at 5:17 AM

      My husband and I are traveling to Egypt from the US in late December (for a 1 week stay), but we haven't booked our hotels yet. We're looking to relax at a high end resort for a several days but also take in some of the popular tourist attractions (pyramids, Sphinx, cruise the Nile).
      We fly into Cairo. Are we better off staying at a luxury resort in another city and taking an excursion trip into Cairo to see the sights? Or are there good luxury resort options in Cairo?

    • Looking for a place I visited in 2006 - need help finding

      Cairo Nov 17, 2016 at 10:35 AM

      I was in in Cairo in 2006 and really trying to remember this place that I was at. I'll try to describe it the best that I can. Any help would be greatly appreciated. At the time I was looking for a place to go dancing. I got into a cab in Cairo near the nile and tried to explain to the cab driver that I wanted to go to a place for dancing and that had women. He didnt know much English so he ended up taking me this (what appeared to be) low key hotel that had a room with belly dancing. I do remember that the hotel was fairly close to the pyramids. I should note that this was at night so I'll try my best to explain the area and place. The place he took me was on a smaller street, almost like a side street, that intersected into one of the bigger main roads. The hotel didnt seem like it had a lot of floors, and I cant even tell you if it was a functioning "hotel with guests" but when you go into the lobby from the main entrance the front desk was on the left as soon as you walk in. There was also an open staircase that led up to a second level balcony where there was the room with the belly dancing. From the staircase and balcony, outside the belly dancing room, you could look out over the lobby and see the front desk which was almost directly across from the balcony. I remember this area well because Im pretty sure the cab driver took me to a sketchy place to try and rip me off. Once we were seated in the room with belly dancing, a tray of food came out that I didnt order and the cab driver tried to stick me with the bill. I got pretty upset and walked out to that balcony area and started arguing with the driver over the issue. Next thing I know there are 5 or 6 guys up there almost surrounding me probably because I'm being loud at this point. Well the situation calmed down and the driver wanted to try and make it better so he took me to another room in the same hotel the had almost like a night club, I was still somewhat heated over the situation so I can't remember what the room looked like exactly but I do remember we took an elevator to get to it. So this hotel had one room for belly dancing and another room that could have been a club of some sort. Again, this driver starts to try and get money from me so I say skip this and just walked out. My line of thinking was that I'd just walk down this side road back to the main road and get another cab. As I'm walking down the street towards the main road I remember passing the hotel parking lot to the left. He then pulls up behind with his cab. He knows I'm really angry at this point but he insists that I get in so he can take me back to my hotel. I got back in and he took me back to my hotel where we argued in them cab for probably a half hour. It was all dumb on my part, I know. I could have easily come up missing. I just really want to remember this place that I was at. SO could anyone throw out some suggestions as to what this hotel was called?

      Close to the pyramids.
      On a side street that connected to a busy main street.
      Had a belly dancing room and another club type room.
      The room with belly dancing was on a 2nd level balcony that overlooked the lobby
      Seemed really low key place that didnt have any other Americans in it.
      Oh, and I think we actually entered the belly dancing room from a back door that led to a parking lot, not the lobby.

      Thank you for your help!

      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?

      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

      Pyramids of Giza 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

    • Bahariya - hiring an ordinary taxi

      Bawiti 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.
