Yes, that’s both ways!

I’m actually thinking of saying in Hurghada a coupe of days to do some excursions there! At this rate we will need a holiday to recover from being away 😆😆


Sounds like a good idea. Tombs and temples have a limited appeal to most 7 year olds!

Try a snorkelling boat trip out to the islands....maybe see dolphins!

A desert safari - jeep or quad bike - is also interesting. Fake Bedouin included!

Hurghada has an impressive aquarium....and el Gouna’s worth a visit, if only to observe the contrast between upmarket international-standard tourism and what you’ll experience in Luxor. :lol:

Oceanus have got back to me very quickly, for 2 adults and a child they have quoted me $160 which I think works out at 130 GBP.

Is that good?
My first thought was - ask him to quote in GBP (I hate changing my money to USD). Unfortunately, having not visited Egypt for a while I've not been watching the currency conversion rates between USD/GBP/LE so I'm not sure now which currency would be best for you. I know I paid GBP when I used them and it was better on my purse.

You will have noticed the frequency with which buses crash in Egypt..with enormous loss of life. :urm:

Ask him to tell you how much in UK pounds or Egyptian, the Egyptian pound is about 20le to 1 UK.

Interesting to read the above. Sort of confirms my own thoughts.
