i just want to know how much money did you spend daily? topdeck advices LE200-300 per day, does this include the optional extras or over and above that??
also what did you wear (ladies) when on tour? can you wear shorts and singlets or do you need to be covered everyday?
shoes - jandels/sandels?? would jeans be too hot to wear??

We are two girls who just visited Egypt with a private guide. Wear skirts/pants that at least come down to your knees, and tops that cover your shoulders and your bust. Nothing tight or transparent. You don’t need to wear a headscarf however do have one in your bag.

You can wear less… there are tacky tourists in short shorts and singlets… however it’s extremely disrespectful to local custom and you will be harassed more. The men were fine in most places, however every man in Luxor seemed to have their phones out to sneak a photo of us in Luxor… despite dressing modestly and telling them to stop.

I wore lightweight hike pants, a cotton maxi skirt, and loose cotton shirts most days. Jeans are too hot in Summer, however look up the average temperature for your time of travel to decide for yourself.
