Accommodation

Egypt Pyramids Tours offers a varied selection of hotels and cruise ships. We only use first class and luxury hotels, often exceeding North American standards. Many of the selected hotels and cruise ships belong to International chains; Hilton International, Hyatt, Oberoi and Movenpick. They are picked based on location, cleanliness, friendliness, helpfulness of the staff, location, and best value for the dollar.

We will be happy to work with clients who secure their own accommodation directly with the hotels on frequent traveler points or vouchers. However, we will not be responsible for any problems or issues that may arise with the hotels or venues that were not booked directly by us.

Egypt

If you are a Canadian or US citizen you need a valid passport and entry visa. The passport should be valid for at least six months after the date of entry into Egypt. As for the visa, you can either obtain it from your nearest consular office in North America, or we can obtain it upon arrival at an airport or port authority.

Other nationalities should check with the Egyptian Embassy or consular office for Visa requirements from their countries.

Whatever you choose to see in Egypt will be worth while and a wonderful experience. Each city provides its own charm, history and archaeological wonders; The Pyramids of Giza near Cairo, the temples along the Nile and Lake Nasser, the library in Alexandria, the beautiful beaches along the shores of the Mediterranean Sea and Red Sea, just to mention a few of the many possibilities.

Yes you can. Our suggestion would be to try and change your money at a bank, and there are plenty of them, often located in hotel lobbies and on ships.

Preparation

It all depends on what excursions you are going to attend.

If this is a boat trip, you must always bring swimsuits, a towel, sun protection products, hats, mask tubes (if they are not included in the price), photo and video equipment.

On historical excursions, you need to shoe comfortable shoes, wear light and comfortable clothes, take hats, glasses, water, photo and video equipment.

If excursions involve night crossings, do not forget: warm clothes, a pillow for comfort, rations and water.

Some excursions require a passport (especially those that suggest crossing the border).

It is advisable to dress conservatively when visiting churches and mosques. For men do not wear shorts and as for woman do not wear any thing short unless on the beach or by the pool. This will save you unwanted attention. If you are traveling in the summer loose, light cotton clothing is absolutely essential. Don’t forget to bring with you your sunglasses, comfortable walking shoes, and a hat.

Reservation

Yes. Reservations are required for guaranteed spots on all tours. Reservations help us determine the number of guides we need to ensure that our groups remain manageable and enjoyable, and they allow us to notify you of changes to the tour due to weather or anything that could disturb the tours.

Though both “private tours” and “motor coach tours” include pre-arranged accommodation and services, there are some major differences.

The private tours are fully customized travel for those people that do not want to be governed by motor coach schedules and tours that cater to large group of people, sometimes upward of 45 people per bus. We will organize and design your trip around your wishes, schedules, flights, and time framework. We will also take into consideration your interests and budget. Private tours offer the most flexibility and free time.

Escorted tours are for those who want to travel without any of the hassles of planning the trip on their own, while taking advantage of traveling with a group, which also allows them to save on costs. There are several packages each tour company offers for select destinations, departing on specific dates, and pre-set durations of time.

Custom trip planning is what we specialize in. Our tour designers will work with you to create the ideal trip for you based on your interests and budget. We have the knowledge and impressive well informed representatives in Egypt ready to plan a well customized trip. We handle all details, from the basic to the most personalized request, making your trip a great experience that will live with you for years to come..

Weather

Although Egypt is year round destination, the best time to visit will be from October to March. There are still plenty of visitors in the summer, but one must be careful to be well prepared with comfortable light weight clothing and sun block.
