Through our work from several years in Egypt shore excursions from several ports ,we can show you the most frequently asked questions FAQ through our travelers , in which we hope you can find reply to what is going on your mind .
What about Entry Visa to Egypt?
Many people mistakenly believe that if they are not taking their tour with the cruise line, they will have to get the entry visa to Egypt on their own. Which IS NOT true? Before entering the port, an Egyptian Immigrations Officer will board the cruise; provide ALL Passengers with the stamp to enter Egypt, whether they are doing their tour with the cruise line, a private company, or even on their own! Visa is guaranteed to everyone.
Are we going to be private or joining Big Groups?
Most of our Excursions are private, you will have your private vehicle, Driver & Egyptian Guide, In case if our client asked to join Big group in order to reduce the price, we can work in his request upon availability.
We hear that security is only provided for the cruise line!! Is this correct?
Security is NOT provided by the cruise line. It is provided by the Egyptian government. The buses move in convoys for protection. There will be a guard on the bus and police/army vehicles in front and behind The Egyptian government take so much care of the tourism as it is the national source of income in Egypt. The tourist in Egypt is VIP person So the Egyptian police (not the ship) provide police cars, security, guards around all the buses This service is not by the ship or Cairo travel, it is provided for all the tourists that arrive to Egypt, make organized tours. Please note that not all countries in the middle east have problems. A lot of people confuse the countries all together; countries like Egypt, Jordan, Libya, Syria are safe places without any war or conflict going. You will always feel safe.
