Private 2 day overnight trip to Cairo from Hurghada by plane

Hi All.

Has anyone done the above trip??? Who did you use for the trip???? Any idea what the cost to go in March ??? Would you recommend the 2 day trip over the 1 day trip.

This may be a silly question, Are the Russians still flying into Hurghada or did they completely stop going into Egypt??? after Sharm accident??

Accident? After the ‘accident’, Russia (unlike the UK who just put Sharm Airport on the “essential travel only” list) stopped flights to Egypt but appears to be on the verge of resuming them. Time permitting, a two day trip is obviously better than a a one day whirlwind visit.

I'd recommend doing the whole trip yourself, arranging flights yourself and then maybe getting a guide in Cairo if you feel you need one.

I visited Cairo by plane and did the museum and pyramids also faluca ride all in one day and then flew back in the evening( as that's all I wanted to see)

Didn't use a guide, just got a taxi from Cairo airport.

If your confident traveling on your own, then you won't need a guide.

Hi aa

Obviously you should get quotes from guides and excursion companies offering these tours or deals, but if you want to stay overnight in Cairo, you can get the hotel yourself very cheap.

Google is very handy at finding bargains and reveiwing feedback and reviews.

BB (a very knowledgeable fellow TA member) has vast knowledge on Cairo and may suggest a recommended guide or company?
