Egypt tipping

Going on a Nile cruise for 7 nights, 3 nights in Cairo and 4 nights in El Gouna. When we visited Luxor before there were lots of children, is it best to give them tips of money or crayons and pens.

From what I've seen most people on this forum have said pens. We gave them little bags of pretzels and they seemed to like them!

Definitely do NOT give them money. It just teaches them to beg. They do love pens, pencils, etc.

However, be forewarned. Don't be surprised if you give something to one child and you are immediately surrounded by 10 or more kids with their hands out.

Have a great trip !
