Spending Money to Bring
Tips: We take a simple tip kitty to cover all your tips for the week. Tipping is such a big thing in Egypt, it can be very confusing for visitors here so take that headache away from you. You should budget $150 per person as a solo traveller, or $100 per person for 2 or more traveling together. These tips cover everything from airport transfers, hotels, housekeeping, restaurants, horse guides, Egyptology guides, water taxis in all locations on your trip.
Entry Fees: Temples and Museums are payable locally. Typical programs include Giza Pyramids. Sakkara Cairo. Valley of the kings Luxor, Hatshepsut Temple, Karnak light and sound show and Habu Temple. Budget for around 70 dollars for the week which will also give you little extra loose change for supermarkets and pharmacies. Both can be given on the first morning in an envelope.
The rest of how much to bring depends on how much shopping you like to do and how much alcohol you enjoy.
If you are going on any of these holidays you will need to book a domestic flight between Cairo and Luxor. Domestic flights are rarely released very far in advance here so you should not worry if you can’t find a flight very early in advance of your departure date.
Typically we book our domestic flights here around a month before travel when we will be able to give you the exact flight number and time to book for your holiday date. Just drop us a line a month before.
