What Will You Do With Your Free Time on the Trip?
Now of course on every trip there will be times when there will be no organised activities. We have ensured that there is plenty of time for you to relax and soak up the atmosphere that is Egypt. However, if you want something to do in your free time we have got that covered for you as well.
Whenever there is free time during the trip, you will always be given some options of what you can do, one of which will always be relaxing and doing nothing.
Some options might be going to a jewellery shop to shop for Nubian gold, local markets, visiting a papyrus gallery to discover how papyrus is made, visiting an aromatherapy factory to learn about essential oils, watching local kids weaving or seeing craftsmen sculpt beautiful artefacts from alabaster or maybe shopping for leather.
From the options given you will have a personal tour guide take you to and from where you want to go. So even though it is your free time, you are still totally taken care of and well looked after.
Anytime you have free time, if you want to see something, our Co-ordinator and Tour Guide will endeavour to make it happen for you. That is one of the benefits of travelling with Quest Travel. They go that little bit extra to make every tour something incredibly special for everybody.
Egypt is the original place of bartering and bartering is very much part of the buying process. So we will teach you the art of bartering and whenever you are shopping we will assist you to buy what you want at the best price. But be assured, prices in Egypt are already very low.
