Before even beginning this review of our recent holiday, I must preface it with the fact that my wife works as a cruise consultant for MyTravel plc, and so we got a heavily-discounted price for this holiday of a lifetime: consequently any overall holiday cost indication would be irrelevant. ( I...

ProThe breathtaking scenery and diving

ConsThe scattered rubbish that is not cleared up

At the far Southern tip of the Sinai, the desert peninsula of Ras Mohammed edges out into the Red Sea. Here the craggy plateau disintegrates into broad sandy beaches separated by rocky outcrops, which drop off into rich coral reefs whose brilliantly coloured reef fish attract barracuda and sharks...

Procheap, lots of sights and things to do

ConsHustlers hassle!

Egypt is a magnet for travellers and tourists, one of the few countries within the North African and Middle Eastern regions that is well and truly open to foreigners. It combines culture and ancient history with sandy deserts, magnificent beaches, great diving and snorkeling opportunities, a wide...

“Egypt - trip up the Nile”

published 27/09/2006

ProHot with plenty to see and do

ConsHarrassment from street sellers

This year I went on one of the most amazing holidays I have been on. I went to Egypt. My trip to Egypt took months of planning and was in fact very difficult to book. This stemmed from the fact that I had a clear idea of where I wanted to go in Egypt and when. I wanted to start in Luxor. This was...

Me and my partner visited back in June this year for a week: we bought the whole package on Ebookers for just under £400 each which included flights and all inclusive accomodation. We flew with Monarch and had no problems at all with the check in, flight or baggage collection. We chose to stay in...

ProHistory, atmosphere, weather.... I could go on!

ConsNot for you if you hate to haggle!

Hearing on the news that bombs have exploded with tragic consequences at a destination you have just locked your suitcase to travel to is not the best start to any holiday. We spent the whole of the day before we travelled to Taba and Nuweiba constantly on the phone to our tour operator (Libra...

“Along the Nile”

ProA must for history fans and sightseers.

ConsGenerally not good for children or teenagers.

Along the Nile A Dream Egypt was a place I had always wanted to visit. Since I was a small child I dreamed of visiting this mystical and ancient land.

“Very HOT”

Provery hot and historical

Consnone

Although I only went to Egypt for a few days I found it fasinating and would definately visit again. Egypt is full of things to see and do including the Cairo museam, the Sphinx and the three pyramids. The Cairo museam: The Cairo museam is well worth visiting and is full of Egypt's history. It...

ProSun, sea, sand, awesome experience

ConsVisable povety,

This opinion is mainly about Cairo but includes alittle about Ras Sudur near Suez. I visited Egypt in August 2001 and i am returning August 2002. The first thing that hit me as we travelled from the airport in Cairo to our hotel, apart from the heat, was the living standards in the city. In...

ProNice to visit

ConsProblems at the airport

Well this happened so long ago that you will just get the highlights. I flew into Egypt and was held up at airport for 45 minutes while customs looked at my passport. No reason for the delay was given and all other passengers from my flight went right through. Maybe they thought I was CIA, since...
