Hi, I'm going to visit Egypt in less than 2 weeks. I wonder whether I should book a tour package in advance. Or I should just book the hotel and get a tour package after my arrival. I read one of the posts here which says i will get a much much cheaper price if i get the tour from the hotel. is that true? if so, any hotel to recommend that can arrange such tours? or any good travel agent to recommend?

any help will be very much appreciated. thanks!

Hi mate,

I stayed at the Garden palace Hotel pretty centric and they organised everything for us. Included a night in the desert, train ticket to Aswan and from there Felluca, hotel in Luxor and so much more.

The tour sold in Europe are much more expensive than in the country where you tend to travel. I verified it especially in Egypt and Kenya, Tanzania.

Enjoy it´s a fabulous country.

Thank you flo jo, I think I may just go ahead and book a package from an agent, since it's peak season, maybe it's better if I book everything a little bit in advance.... But still find a good agent is not easy....
