This truly was the trip of a lifetime

Basil S


I can unequivocally vouch for this incredible, awe-inspiring journey. From a very well-planned itinerary that incorporated nearly all of Egypt’s must-see sites, to better-than-advertised accommodations.Thanks to Ryan, this truly was the trip of a lifetime.” — Basil


1. Does the Experience Egypt Tour price include international flights?

International flights to/from Cairo are not included in the tour price. Compare rates between Skyscanner and Google Flights and once you find the flight you want we recommend booking directly through the official website of the airline.

2. What happens when I land in Cairo?

Once you land in Cairo Airport, you’ll be met by our VIP airport concierge which will assist you with your tourist visas and then proceed to pass through immigration alongside you. Once you pass immigration, you’ll make your way to baggage claim to grab your bags and then you’ll be taken directly from Cairo International Airport to our hotel in downtown Cairo. We will be awaiting your arrival to the hotel and we’ll get you checked in as quickly and efficiently as possible.

3. What types of transportation will we be using?

All of our ground transport will be operated by our transportation partners in Cairo, Aswan and Luxor. All of the vehicles are private, modern, air-conditioned vans/shuttles with professional drivers.

4. What types of accommodations will we be staying in?

All of the hotels that we chose for this tour are rated from 4.5-5 stars. They’re centrally located, clean, and comfortable with air conditioning and Wi-Fi. We will spend a total of 5 nights in hotels (3 nights in Cairo, 1 night in Luxor and 1 final night in a Cairo Airport hotel. We will also spend 3 nights on a Nile Cruise from Aswan to Luxor.

5. Is food expensive in Egypt?

No. Generally speaking food in Egypt is very reasonably priced. Prices vary depending on the type of restaurants you’re dining at. Meals at more budget friendly restaurants will set you back somewhere between $5 to 10 USD. Mid-range establishments will be more in the range of $10 to $20 USD while more high end dining can be upwards of $50 USD or more.

When it comes to food on our tours, we only take our guests to establishments that serve high quality food and ingredients. All of the restaurants we work with are reasonably priced and perfectly safe to eat at.

6. Can single travelers join this tour?

All of our tours are based on double occupancy. We understand that some people prefer to travel solo and because of this we welcome single travelers to join us on tour.

If you are traveling alone and wish to have a private room throughout the duration of the tour please note that there will be a single supplement fee of $299 USD added to the final cost of the tour.

7. How does tipping work in Egypt?

The tipping culture is very real in Egypt. The tourism industry in Egypt relies on tips and because of this PTM Tours sets aside a fixed amount of money each day for tips that cover our drivers, guides and a few others that should be tipped for their services.

In other words, tipping is not obligatory by any means and anything you decide to tip should be considered extra and is completely up to you. If you feel that a person was kind or helpful to you in one way or another, feel free to tip them.

Lastly, you’ll hear Egyptians using the word “baksheesh” just about everywhere you go from the streets to the temples and even in the most nonsensical places such as airport security lines. If someone approaches you asking for a tip and you don’t feel like they deserve it, simply say no and keep it moving. It’s as easy as that!

8. Will there be downtime on the tour?

Yes, of course! While the tour is quite action-packed from start to finish, there will also be some free time involved as well.

9. Do I need to pay a deposit to secure my spot on the tour?

The BEST trip I have ever gone on!

Hannah I.

Massachusetts, USA

I went on Ryan’s first tour EVER and honestly – I was and still am completely amazed at my experience. Ryan curated each and every experience to be truly unique. Usually I would travel solo – this was my first ever guided tour and I was honestly hesitant – but Ryan’s tour brought me to places and presented beautiful opportunities that I would have completely missed if I had gone alone. Thank you, Ryan, for providing me with seriously the BEST trip I have ever gone on!” — Hannah
