Egypt Sights Map

Cairo

With the Great Pyramids of Giza, ancient temples, magnificent monuments, and the Egyptian Antiquities Museum, Cairo offers an experience of a lifetime.

Giza

The Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the seven wonders of the ancient world and the only one still remaining to this day. An absolute must see.

Philae Temple

This beautiful temple complex is one of the most picturesque in all of Egypt. It sits on Aglika Island just south of the old Aswan Dam.

Luxor

A top travel destination in Egypt with a wealth of historic monuments and buildings bringing Egypt’s fabled past to life. Luxor is called the world’s greatest open air museum.

Aswan

Sunniest city of Egypt and a popular touristic stop for many cruises. The local market here is an excellent place to do some shopping and the best place to find Egyptian fresh spices.

Edfu

Edfu has the most complete and best-preserved temple in Egypt, the Ptolemaic Temple of Horus, which was constructed between 237 BC and 57 BC

Komombo

Kom Ombo means ‘hill of the gold’ crowned with Temple of Komombo. The temple is unusual as one side is dedicated to the god Haroesis and the other side to Sobek.

Unfinished Obelisk

The 42m long obelisk was left unfinished when some cracks appeared, but had this obelisk been completed, it would have been the heaviest, weighing nearly 1100 tons!

High Dam

The symbol of the New Era after the Revolution of 1952, the dam provided Egypt with water and electricity and protected huge areas against flooding.

• What is the personal spending money?

• Is there any luggage restriction?
Good news, there isn’t any luggage restriction on our tours as long as you’re able to carry your own luggage! We highly recommend you to pack a smaller bag if your tour includes Felucca stay, so you can leave your luggage on the bus.
• What should I pack for my tour?
Don’t forget to have the following items with you:  
  • Passport
  • Airline or transportation ticket
  • Tour voucher
  • Insurance policy
  • Visas (if necessary)
  • Label on your travel bag
  • Pre-departure information
  • Money (cash and/ or travellers cheques)
  • Credit card
  Please also keep in mind that when visiting religious sites, appropriate attire is required (scarves for women etc).  For seasonal clothing tips, you can refer to the ‘What to Wear’ section of your Pre-Departure File. https://1nkoch1xsedo1tdphv417r84-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/predep-egypt.pdf
• Do your tours welcome solo travellers?
There are always solo travellers & like-minded passengers on our tours & we always work to provide our passengers a relaxed & sociable environment, allowing them to easily meet people & make friends.
• I’m a solo passenger; do I need to pay the single supplement?
There are always solo travellers on our tours. If you don’t mind being roomed with another single traveller of the same gender, then you do not need to pay the supplement. The single supplement is for travellers who would like to stay in a single room for the duration of their tour.
• Can I be roomed with my friends?
You can contact our agents with your request & we will do our best to arrange your room accordingly. For all requests you can contact info@traveltalktours.com or 0208 099 9596.
• What is a Felucca?
Feluccas are traditional sailing boats that have been used on the Nile for centuries. They are very simple sailing boats and have no engines. A second basic boat is attached to your felucca for bathroom facilities. There is a single deck on which you can stretch out during the day under a shade awning. Each felucca sleeps 6-8 people and is crewed by a captain and a deck hand – both of whom have grown up along the banks of the Nile. As well as being experienced Nile sailors they also make the most delicious meals out of simple local ingredients. You may sit down to a lunch of local bread, white cheese, hummus and delicious fresh juicy tomatoes or a dinner of pasta and mixed vegetables with delicious tomato sauce. The deck is covered with mattresses and cushions and you will sleep sardine style across the boat, however a light sleeping bag will be necessary if you are travelling in the winter.  Please note that Felucca Tours are only recommended to adventure lovers.
• What is the difference between Land & Felucca & Nile Cruise tours?
Only difference would be the vehicles & accommodation on the Nile River for days 5 & 6: • Land Tours: Daily felucca trip on the Nile and you stay in the hotel during the night (Day 5). • Felucca Tours: You will be sailing with a Felucca on the Nile and you will sleep in the Felucca as well (Day 5 & 6). It will be 2 days of back to basics. • Nile Cruise Tours: You will be sailing with a luxury Nile cruise, and you will stay on the boat at night.
• Will my tour be affected if I travel during Ramadan period?
Ramadan is the Holy Month of the Islamic calendar and a time when Muslims fast from sun rise until sunset. Fasting means 'nil by mouth' including food, water and cigarettes. Many local cafes and restaurants remain closed during the day however tourists are not expected to fast, and there are cafes and restaurants that stay open to cater for you. During Ramadan you are encouraged to show your respect by not walking around in public eating, chewing gum, smoking or drinking. It is fine to do so in your hotel or in a cafe/restaurant recommended by your tour leader. Your tour leader will organise lunches and dinners which will make Ramadan easier for you. During the month you will find that tourist sites often close early to allow staff to return home in time to break their fast and shops often open late and close early.   Ramadan Calendar 
  • 2018: From the 15th of May to the 14th of June
  • 2019: From the 5th of May to the 4th of June
  • 2020: From the 23rd of April to the 23rd of May
• Will my dietary requirements be catered for?
If you provide your dietary requirements at the time of booking, we will do our best to make the necessary arrangements where available.
• What if I join the tour late?
You can join a tour late or miss the info meeting on the first day if you inform our crew prior to departure. Please note that it will be your responsibility to make the necessary arrangements to catch the group. For all emergencies, you can contact +90 542 779 0434.
• Can I miss the welcome meeting?
Being avid travellers ourselves, we know that unforeseen circumstances arise. If you are late and miss the welcome meeting, don't stress, just check the information board in the hotel lobby for the next day's programme. For all emergencies, you can contact +90 542 779 0434.
• What are the driving distances on my tour
To help you plan your day, we have prepared the list of the driving distances on the tour. Please refer to the relevant section of your Pre-Departure File for the complete list. https://1nkoch1xsedo1tdphv417r84-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/predep-egypt.pdf
• What currency should I bring?
We recommend you to carry a mixture of cash and a debit/credit card. The local currency is Egyptian Pound (EGP) and 1GBP is approximately 11EGP. Most towns in Egypt have ATMs that are linked to major international networks. Credit cards are accepted in most tourist areas, but if you are travelling off the beaten track, be prepared to have some cash.
• Is Hot Air Balloon an option on my tour?
Yes, you can do it in Luxor. The cost is £80.
• Can I do Alexandria Day Trip?
This is one of the optional activities in Egypt. This trip needs 1 full day, so you can do it before or after the tour. The day trip starts around 7am and goes until 6 pm. It costs GBP100 and can be shared with up to 3 people. It has to be booked & paid for in advance if you prefer to do it at the beginning of your tour.
• Do I need to tip?
Tipping is a way of life in Egypt. Your bus driver, felucca staff and guide will be especially appreciative and honoured with this kind of traditional gratitude.
