    • travelling to the north coastal area in Egypt from Cairo Airport

      Egypt Oct 17, 2016 at 2:14 AM

      I travelled to Egypt on my own approximately 1 year ago when i was 21 all the way down from Cairo to Qina and then to Al Quseir which went very well, i'm planning to travel again to the north coastal region like Salloum and Marsa Matruh, however my question is, is there a direct bus-route from Cairo airport to Salloum? since the places i went before are more familiar since there are alot of English speaking people compared to the small places i want to travel now since i don't want to caught up clueless in the middle of the desert (i don't speak arabic just a few basic lines i'm Turkish).

    • 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

      can anyone advise me on whether they've stayed at this hotel, what they thought of it and whether there's opportunities for snorkeling directly from the beach or near to it.

      Dear All,

      We are 4 friends trying to get to Aqaba from Nuweiba by ferry. We are 2 Egyptians, one French and one American. We have been told that it's not easy for Egyptians to cross to Aqaba. Is this true?

      One more thing, does anyone know a travel agency here in Egypt that can help me book the ferry tickets?

      My daughter and I ( 2 women) will be visiting Cairo and would like to take a few days to visit Petra. I understand that there is a ferry from Nuweiba to Aqaba. Is there safe transportation from Aqaba to Petra / Wadi Moussa? I have received mixed advice from friends who have told me it is not safe for 2 women to travel alone and have recommended we hire a tour guide for the trip.

    • Visa and To Cairo by Bus

      by Sa08chu Online Now Dec 10, 2007 at 10:56 AM

      Hi All,

      I'm going to Egypt in a month time and desperate to find out
      a few things, which are so hard to find..even egyptian tourist office doesn't know..

      SO, i would like to ask,
      When you get to Nwueiba from Aqaba,
      i hard they only issue the Sinai visa not the full one.
      Was there any chance to get the full visa at the border?

      Also if any chance you went to Cairo, do you know how bus timetables work? Or
      where to get it in advance?
      Ideally i would like to go on the same day as coming from Aqaba,
      taking an overnight bus from Nwueiba or Dahab.

      Thanks for your help!
