Before Your Trip

Egypt, as a tourist country, cannot be compared with other countries. Things are cheaper here. Even entry fees to the sites are less expensive than many other countries. Flying to Egypt is inexpensive from many tourist spots around the world. Nowadays, you can even get a full organized package trip for $500/$1000 with accommodation!

Egypt is a Muslim country in religion, so please respect their faith with a different culture and mentality to that of the west, but they are friendly & respectable. Many things such as kissing and caressing your partner in public, wearing revealing clothing, frown upon here, so try and be more tory in your attitude. Homosexuality is illegal in Muslim countries!

Please expect lots of attention from the local people to give you all an exceptional welcome in their land.

Wherever you chose to go inside Egypt, you will easily stay connected with family and friends back home through:

  • Mobile Phones: you can select to roam with your international number by registering on any of Egypt’s four mobile phone operator networks. You may want to purchase a temporary visitor line from one of the providers.
  • Landlines: in addition to their availability in all hotels, payphones are also available in some cities.
  • Internet: Wireless internet is available in many restaurants, hotels, clubs, and coffee shops throughout the country. Some may provide the service free, while others may charge you for it. Hotels offer wired and wireless access in the comfort of your room. Some cities, like Sharm El Sheikh, are fully connected using wireless internet connectivity.

Do not rely solely on travel books. Though they do give a lot of useful information, they do not explain everything or find help if you get into problems. Too many people have come to Egypt armed with one of these books and have left, totally disappointed with their trip, vowing never to return!

Independent travel, for your 1st-time experience, is not advised. I have spoken to many people who tried it this way and wished they had gone as part of a tourism group.

If you wish to organize everything by yourself, be prepared for the occasional “rip-off.” Like many other tourist destinations. Often, an excursion’s total cost can be a lot more than if you arranged it through your travel agent and a lot less enjoyable.

Today with Geoota Travel, we offer very suitable and well-organized trips. You picked up the choice to do it with us! Then it would help if you were prepared.
