Entrance Fees

Entrance fees need to be paid locally in Egypt. If you have a valid student card, remember to bring it with you as you will receive discounts to some museums and monuments. You can expect entrance fees for your whole trip to be between 507 EGP – 1547 EGP.


Breakfasts are included every day on most trips (except on the first morning). A typical breakfast may consist of cereals with milk or yogurt, bread, croissants, cold meats, cheese and a range of spreads with fruit juice, tea or coffee to drink. It is rare to get a hot breakfast, though on some occasions there may be some hot food available as well. Included evening meals are in local restaurants or your place of accommodation. In most cases, table water is provided with the meals, and if you wish to purchase additional drinks you can do so at your own expense.

If you have any dietary requirements we will make every effort to cater to your specific needs as long as you advise your travel agent or Topdeck Customer Service Consultant when you book. However, please be aware that although we will do everything in our power to arrange it, we cannot guarantee that every restaurant we use will be able to cater to all dietary needs. We also cannot cater to tastes or dislikes, as most of our included evening meals feature a set menu

Important note on Ramadan

As many Middle Eastern countries are of Islamic faith, it is important to remember that lots of restaurants and shops will either be closed or operating on reduced hours during Ramadan. As a result, some optional and included activities on your trip may be affected. Ramadan, which takes place in either April, May or June, is an incredibly important and sacred month for Muslims. When equipped with some basic knowledge, you’ll have the chance to immerse yourself in this special tradition and experience all its highlights.

    Me encantó el viaje, pero si se iban a combinar varios viajes que incluian Egipto deberia ser el mismo itinerario para todos o tener ya incluida la vista a Alexandria

  • Liz July 2019

    From the time we purchased our trip until the day we left Egypt, every member of the top deck team was easy and fun to work with (including the online support). All of the items we did were totally worth the cost.

    Not enough time at each location. Great guides though.
