The Latest FAQs about Egypt Tours

Q: Regarding local COVID policies, what do I need to do before entering Egypt?

A:

Travelers are required to be fully vaccinated with vaccines approved by the World Health Organization and The Egyptian Medicines Authority and must show an approved certificate with a QR code from the issuing country.

If you are not vaccinated, you must be in possession of negative PCR test taken 72 hours max. before the (final leg of the) flight to Egypt. The PCR test certificate should have QR code from the laboratory issuing the certificate

There are some more detailed requirements for the PCR test and the vaccines certificate. Your personal travel advisor can give you more information.

Q: What is the best time to visit Egypt?

A: Egypt has two distinct seasons. Summer temperatures are very hot. Autumn is cool. So it is best to try to avoid May - September and the rest of the year is more comfortable to visit this historic country.

Q: How should I choose a Nile Cruise?

A:

Small Ships:

There are so many cruise ships on the Nile. They can be categorized into standard cruises and deluxe cruise. Each ship can take about 110 passengers. Most of the ships operate 4-day or 5-day, upstream or downstream cruises. We always recommend a deluxe cruise. Furthermore, we select the newer ships with better cabins and facilities.

Dahabiya Boats:

If you would like to experience a Nile cruise as the upper-class Egyptians and Victorian tourists did in the 19th century, you can choose a dahabiya boat. Most dahabiya boats take 10 to 15 passengers. Their decoration is traditional in style. Besides the popular temples, dahabiya boats also stop at places where the bigger boats can't dock. It is a good choice for getting off the beaten path.

Feluccas:

If you would like a half-day boat ride on the Nile to enjoy the scenery and interact with local people, a felucca is the best choice. It is best to take a felucca from Aswan. They normally take 6 to 8 passengers.
