FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Our Egypt tour group is carefully curated to ensure an optimal travel experience. We limit our group size to no more than 20 travelers. This size is large enough to warrant the comfort and convenience of a motor coach for transportation, yet small enough to ensure ease of travel through monuments and sites. Our small group size allows for personalized attention from our expert Egyptologist, ensuring all your questions about Egypt’s rich history and culture are answered. This balance creates a travel experience that is both comfortable and deeply informative.

Absolutely, it is safe to travel to Egypt, particularly with our meticulously planned tours. We partner with a local tour company that guides our groups from start to finish, ensuring not only a rich, immersive experience but also prioritizing your safety and comfort at all times. Moreover, our dedicated team in Canada continually monitors current tourism advisories, so you can focus on enjoying your trip without any worries. Your safety is our utmost priority, and we strive to provide a travel experience that is both secure and unforgettable.

Indeed, tipping, or “baksheesh” as it’s locally known, is a customary practice in Egypt to show appreciation for good service. It’s typical to tip guides, drivers, hotel staff, and service workers in restaurants and cafes. For your convenience, we’ve included all gratuities in the cost of our tour, with the exception of your airport guide and our dedicated Egyptologist guide. For these exceptional services, we recommend a tip of $15/day/person USD for your guide, and $40/person USD for your airport guide as a gesture of appreciation for their invaluable contribution to your Egyptian adventure.

Yes, everyone participating in our tour will require a visa to travel to Egypt. Fortunately, the process is straightforward and can be easily completed online. We recommend applying and purchasing your visa well in advance to ensure a smooth travel experience. You can apply for your visa by visiting the official Egyptian government visa website at https://visa2egypt.gov.eg/. This will help streamline your entry into Egypt, allowing you to focus on the exciting journey ahead.

The best time to visit Egypt is typically between October and April, when the weather is cooler and more comfortable for sightseeing. During our tour, you can expect temperatures to range from a low of around 10 degrees Celsius to a high of around 20 degrees Celsius. This pleasant climate allows you to fully enjoy the awe-inspiring sights and experiences Egypt has to offer, from ancient pyramids to bustling markets, without the intense heat of the summer months.
When traveling in Egypt, it’s important to respect the local customs and dress modestly, as it is a predominantly Muslim country. This is particularly important when visiting religious sites. We recommend that women cover their shoulders and wear long pants or skirts. For all travelers, covering your skin not only shows respect for the local culture, but it can also help protect against the sun. Remember, comfort is key, so breathable fabrics are a good choice in the Egyptian climate.
Our tour includes some meals and also allows you to explore local cuisine. We suggest budgeting $40 USD per day for additional meals and snacks, but dining in Egypt is affordable. Enjoy Egyptian delicacies and fully immerse yourself in the local food culture without breaking the bank.
