Worth noting…

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 be to between 507 EGP - 1547 EGP.

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.
