Egypt & Middle East FAQs

There is so much to see and do on a Egypt & Middle East tour. You can even opt to make your trip longer by adding on an extension package to Alexandria, El Alamein or Petra.

The best time to visit Egypt & the Middle East can depend on what you want to see and do. The temperatures can, however, get extremely warm. Travelling between April to May or October to November are a good time to visit as the temperatures are warm, but not sweltering. We recommend speaking to one of our friendly Travel Specialists to discuss what works best for you.

Like any country, you must be respectful of the customs and traditions in the Middle East.  In Egypt, we would recommend to avoid drinking tap water (including brushing teeth) and drink bottled water instead. It’s also important to be respectful about how you dress, especially when visiting churches or mosques. Avoid wearing shorts above the knee or having exposed shoulders.
