    • 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

    • 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!

    • Do any charter companies flying to Siwa?

      by ciaoholly Online Now Apr 24, 2009 at 7:25 PM

      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? (not a pricey Lear Jet or anything, small prop plane maybe?) We'd love to visit Siwa but don't have the time on our trip for the 8 hr drive... Thanks

    • Road Siwa to Bahariya by camper

      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

      How many hours does the trek from Siwa to Bahariya take by car?
      Should I arrange it in Siwa with service taxi or is a

      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,
