My girlfriend and I are booked onto this tour Day1 6thOct09, arrival in Cairo Airport at 15:25.
This tour does not come with an airport transfer to our Hotel.
(1)I am concerned about getting a taxi to our Hotel. Would we be better off pre-booking now via our Travel Agent, or taking our chances and getting a taxi at the airport?
(2) what is the recommended currency to obtain on arrival for this tour? Egypt pounds? are they best for taxi's? How much should we expect to pay (Each) to get to the hotel.
(3) Will there be others on the same tour with us?
(4) my friend is a vegetarian, will this be a problem, or should she buy up some food before to take on the trip?
I presume our trip dossier will detail the amount of local currency we need to pay to the tour leader. Will this also include any "bakeeksh" payments?
