Do not forget that in Egypt you always need to bargain, the initial price tags are always overestimated one and a half times. If you count the total amount, then 50 Egyptian pounds a day you have enough "eagle".
If you are traveling to the AI, but want to go on an excursion
Local excursions in Egypt cost 30-50 dollars. By the word "local" we refer to visiting water parks , boating with a transparent bottom and similar entertainments, if they do not provide for a long trip by bus.
In case of a long trip to Egyptian sights , the prices for excursions vary from 70 to 130 dollars.
If you fly to your destination on an airplane, for example, in Cairo look at the Egyptian pyramids or in Luxor see Karnak Temple , it will cost about 250 dollars.
Excursions to Israel cost about $ 300, except for some cases. For example, the resort of Taba is located directly on the border with Israel, and the prices here are cheaper - about $ 75 for a one-day excursion and about $ 130 for a two-day tour.
Based on these prices, you can calculate your costs for excursions and entertainment. On excursions, you can save money, if you buy them not from your tour operator, but from a third-party company. At each resort of Egypt near the hotels you can find independent travel agencies. The savings in this case are 10-30%.
Excursions can differ in the quality of the services provided. First of all, it concerns lunches and dinners. You can wait for a sumptuous table with meat dishes, vegetables and fruits, or it may turn out that you will have a "rich" choice between macaroni and rice. Unfortunately, it is difficult to guess in advance.
Evolution of prices
Prices for excursions in Egypt are constantly rising. The reason for this is the constant increase in the price of fuel in the country.
Egypt itself produces oil and provides its fuel needs. Previously, the government pursued a policy of "cheap gasoline", but now these principles are abandoned. Fuel is expensive every year.
Not surprisingly, even ten years ago, excursions cost twice as cheap.
Now a liter of gasoline in Egypt costs about 2.6 pounds. Having counted the price in rubles independently, you will see that it is much cheaper than in Russia. Hence the lower prices for excursions in Egypt, if compared with Turkey, Tunisia or Greece.
If you eat yourself
A snack in a cafe in Egypt can be for 30-40 pounds. Dinner in a restaurant for two costs about 200 pounds. Prices in stores: a small bottle of water - 2-3 pounds, a small bottle of soda - 3-4 pounds.
If you are going to eat modestly, then count on 100 pounds a day. If you want to bite, that comes from a figure of 250 pounds per day per person.
