1. How many pyramids are in Egypt?

2. Shall we change money?

No.  The Euro is readily accepted in Cairo. It is advisable to take with you small denomination notes as change can only be given in Egyptian Pounds and can make haggling easier and more interesting. ATM Machines are available at the hotel we have lunch at. The money received will be in Egyptian Pounds.

3. How much money do we have to take?

There are many shopping possibilities in Cairo.  Most guests buy the traditional cartouche and papyrus, postcards and other small souvenirs as well as bottled water.  We recommend you have at least €50.00 per person with you.  You can also use your credit cards.

4. How do we handle the street vendors?

They are all over Cairo.  They are professional and very persistent sellers. They even try to give you free items.  DO NOT ACCEPT anything from them. They normally sell postcards, papyrus, books and small souvenirs. Always bargain with them as the actual price is less than a quarter of the original asking price and always pay them in small denomination notes or Euro coins.

5. Why are there security men on our buses and a lot of police?
The Egyptian government wants all guests visiting Egypt to feel safe.  That is why we see so many policemen around.  It’s just for precaution.
