My Girlfirend and I are intending to travel (from London) to Egypt with my parents for the first week of November. so 4 adults.
I've never done an organised tour before but I guess was considering it as well its Egypt and my parents are along for the ride. I'd say everyone involved is 'moderately' well travelled.
I was thinking of taking a felucca cruise on the Nile for a few days, but others have suggested its a bit pointless.
I would imagine that there are easy tourist 'day tours' you can jump on to see all the major pyramids around Cairo right? or should one just take a taxi?
Is all the accomodation 'Hotel' style or do they do Riad style B&B accomodation similar to say Morroco? I enjoyed staying in the Riads in Morroco moreso than Hotels.
And yes I have read all the older Egypt Tourist Asks - but most are quite specific.
