      How difficult would it be to find a taxi willing to drive to the monastery of St Katherine, wait while we tour that and Mt. Sinai and then bring us back to Taba.

      Should we just ask any cab driver?

    • Cost of drinks at the Hyatt, Taba Heights

      by magliarda Online Now Oct 10, 2011 at 2:43 PM

      Hi. I'm trying to decide between All inc at Sofitel or Half board at Hyatt. If you've been to the Hyatt, can you give me a rough idea of how much drinks cost - say

      a glass or bottle of wine.
      A G&T.
      A coke or fanta.
      Bottle of Water.

      Comparing the prices between the Sofitel AI & Hyatt HB, two people would have £174 to spend for a week's drinks. We don't drink masses but there again, i don't want to be counting the cost of every glass!

      My partner's been to the Hyatt and likes it there and I quite fancy the sound of the house reef for snorkelling.

      Thanks a lot

    • Last Minute Deals

      by anilpatel Online Now Jul 22, 2010 at 7:59 AM

      With finances being tight, but needing a well earned break, we're looking at booking a holiday to warmer climes which are family friendly (e.g. Turkey / Egypt).
      The question i ask is where, if anywhere, i can source literally last minute deals to travel.
      For example, we can travel at a days notice, but i'm not manging to see any change in prices of holidays nearer the departure date (surely agents would make some recovery opn a holiday than none?)
      I've looked at the likes of, etc but no great deals and usually to places that are for epole that liek drinikng and partying.
      Any guidance would be much appreciated

      I'm considering a holiday in Taba in July. Have been to Sharm el sheikh (Nabq bay) a couple of summers ago and really enjoyed it, would you recommend Taba over Sharm or vice versa? Are they similar or very different? I know quite a few people who have been to Sharm but no one seems to have been to Taba so am short on people to ask! thanks!

    • Is it safe to cross the border from Taba to Eilat now (March 08) ?

      by amsterdam6934 Online Now Mar 16, 2008 at 1:42 AM

      I am planning to visit Egypt in April 08 and we want to go swimming with the dolphins in Eilat. When I was informing about crossing the border from Taba to Israel, people warned me that that it is not avisable now due to the political situation and that it is possible that the Egyptians might refuse you to return to Egypt. My personal feeling about this is that it is nonsense. Can anyone comment on whether these warnings are correct? If we rent a taxi bus from Sharm al Sheikh to Taba and back (5 persons, +/- 500 km) what would be a reasonable price for that in Egypt? Thanx very much in advance!

      Hi I am interested in making the journey from Eilat to Cairo.

      As far as I understand I will need to obtain a passport from the Egyptian consulate, cross over the border and take a bus or taxi from Taba to Cairo.

      I would really appreciate it if people could answer a few of my questions.

      1) How do I get from the border crossing to the bus station that will take me to Cairo?

      2) How much can I expect to pay for the bus fair?

      3) Is it a better idea to take a taxi?

      4) What's the number and name of the bus station?

      5) What's the timetable?

      6) How do I get from Cairo by bus back to Taba?

      All answers are much appreciated.
