|Subject: Egyptian tour companies|
Hi Fellow Ziners,
I'm touring the Oregon beaches with Roger next week. Since he's originally from Maine, he's seen the East coast beaches but never the West coast. He's in for a good time with beautiful scenery!
But my question for the group is about Egyptian tour companies. I have Delta FF miles which are burning a hole in my account & I've always wanted to see Egypt & Covadonga's report a few weeks ago re-whetted my appetite! I was researching land packages & really want just a hosted tour with hotel, guides, transportation, not fully guided with a whole tour group of people. I came to http://www.infohub.com & found several Egyptian tour companies & wonder if anyone has recommendations or cautions against any of them: Milano Travel-Egypt, Delta Tours-Egypt, Bestway Tours & Safari? Also has anyone taken the night train from Cairo to Aswan and/or a bus from Hurghada to Cairo? These less expensive tours do that amount of ground transportation instead of the more expensive flying to those spots. Is it safe to do that? I want to do a few nights in Cairo, Nile cruise, see the sites along the Nile, of course, & maybe go to Hurghada on the Red Sea. Any suggestions?
Thanks, Carol Bailey Priest Lake, Idaho
