Egypt Travel Tips


How valid must my passport be?

Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months to enter the country, otherwise the visa could be denied.

How do I process the Egyptian Visa?

You can process the Egyptian Visa at the consulate of your country, or if you prefer, we can help you process it upon arrival at the Cairo airport, it is very easy and fast, the cost is $ 25 USD. Only your passport is required.

How should I organize my flights to get to Egypt?

At the moment we do not have international flight reservations. But we recommend you use a flight search engine to find the best prices. You should also make sure that the time between air stopovers is more than 4 hours to avoid problems with flight delays. We have had clients who have missed their flights and we have to reorganize the entire itinerary in Egypt. It is also advisable to arrive early to the country.

How do I recognize them when I arrive at the airport?

At the time of your arrival at the Cairo airport, one of our representatives will be waiting for you at one of the exits with a sign with your first and last name. Passing the review of your passport, it is possible that airport officials will ask you some routine questions and check your luggage, it is a usual procedure and does not last more than 10 minutes.

What currency is used in Egypt?

In Egypt we use the Egyptian Pound. Dollars and euros are also accepted. It is important that the dollars are tickets issued from the year 2000, otherwise they may not accept them in your purchases.

How is the Internet in Egypt?

In some hotels they give access to WiFi, however in most the signal is not very good. In cruises it is a service that is paid separately, so we recommend buying a chip from a local telephone agency.

How is the payment to contract with Nefertari tours?

To contract with us it is necessary to make a reservation of $ 200 USD in total, through Western or PayPal, regardless of the number of people traveling. This is for us to be able to make the relevant reservations. When making your reservation we will also need a photo of your passports and the itinerary of your inbound and outbound flights. The remaining cost can be paid upon arrival in Egypt, in cash or by card.

What is the best time to travel to Egypt?

From the beginning of October to April is the best time since the climate is cool and does not reach such high temperatures. However, from December 15 to January 10 is considered high season, in addition to a week before and a week after Easter.

Will there be time to shop for souvenirs?

Every day there will be time to visit markets or bazaars in Cairo, Luxor and Aswan.

Are there tours for backpackers?

Of course! Many of our clients are backpackers and we also offer tours with the three B’s. We know that you like to live the environment and meet the people of Egypt, therefore, this is included in all our tours.

Why do we recommend spending at least 7 days in Egypt?

We consider that 7 days is the recommended minimum to know the most important things without running and visiting the temples that are along the Nile, from north to south until reaching Aswan. We can also do tours with fewer days, however we could only get to Luxor.
