Egypt Travel Guide

All Egypt Articles
Walk like an Egyptian... literally! As you embark on your Egypt cruise, you will walk the same lands that Egyptians have crossed for millennia. While many countries have hidden treasures and monuments tucked deep in their jungles, Egypt is not shy about its awe-inspiring memorials.

In every city, you will witness the imposing pyramids, temples, and monuments climbing towards the heavens in reverance to the ancient gods. On your excursion, you will step back into the mummified history, as you visit splendid sites like:
  • Cairo & Giza: The modern capital of this ancient country, Cairo is home to the extensive Egyptian Museum and also provides a great base for tours of Giza, where the pyramids & the renowned Sphinx are located.
  • Aswan: Best known for the Aswan Dam, you will also see the archaic temples of Philae.
  • Luxor: Called "Thebes" in ancient times, this was one of the main capitals of the pharaohs, where you will explore the haunting Valley of the Kings & Valley of the Queens on the West Bank of the Nile River.
  • Kom Ombu & Edfu: Here there are two temples that you will explore - the Temple of Horus & the Temple of Kom Ombu, a tribute to the crocodile god Sobek.
Egypt Travel FAQs
Do I need a visa to travel to Egypt?

Your passport must be valid for 6 months, and you need either a $25 30-day tourist visa or a $35 multiple entry visa. 

Is tipping customary in Egypt?
Gratuities are expected in Egypt and generally start around 10% of service or a few dollars.

What is internet access like in Egypt?
You will likely be able to find many places in the cities you visit that have free public Wifi, but since all of our Egypt excursions are cruises, don't expect internet on your vesse.

Can I use my cell phone while in Egypt?
You probably won't be close enough to the cell phone towers to get a signal on your phone. If you do, you will have to replace the SIM chip with one you purchase locally (maybe at the airport).

Do I need power adapters?
Power in Egypt is 220v with "Types C & F " sockets. These have two round pins. If your devices aren't compatible with this voltage, you will need a step-down converter. You will definitely need a plug adapter.

What are the toilets like in Egypt?
Your boat will have Western style flush toilets but if there is a sign indicating that you should throw waste paper in the basket, you should definitely follow those instructions.

Can I drink the water in Egypt?
You should not drink the water in Egypt, but your cruise ship will have filtered or bottled water for you at all times.

Are credit cards accepted in Egypt? Will I be able to find ATMs?
Don't expect to find too many ATMs along the way - when you're in the bigger cities, you will likely come across ATMs that accept major international credit cards, but otherwise enjoy the fact that our itineraries are all-inclusive. Take some cash out of an ATM at the airport when you arrive for souvenirs and any tips and you should be covered.

Should I purchase travel insurance?
While not required, it's definitely a good idea to have travel insurance just in case, and we have some great deals via TravelGuard on our Once You're Booked page.
