doctor who here
Oppps sorry folks 2018 x
Looks a good deal, never heard of gogroopie before.
Calesh! Calesh!
You will probably find that the cruise will work out much more if you want to see all the sights -- excursions from the boat are usually extra!
Hurghada is a nice and quiet place. Opposite of Sharm Al Shiekh so not everyone's cup of tea.
I'm brave or maybe mad as I'm off to Hurghada soon as my holiday to Sharm was cancelled (_;)
They don't have very good reviews reviews.co.uk/com…pie but the holiday does look a bargain, dare I risk it.
I've been to Egypt 11 times over the years (Naama Bay, Napq and Hurgharda) and I'd take the 5 star rating with a pinch of salt.
It'll be a bit nippy then.

I've booked a few holidays with these people, we went to a Christmas market with them last year and it was amazing think it cost us just under £200 for 3 nights. I've also bought a few items from them only ever had an issue with the patio heater I bought last summer but they collected it and sent a replacement within a few days so can't complain x
stuff that
Read the foreign office advice before you go:

Traditionally we used to go to Egypt for a winter break (I dive), but for the last 2 years we've not been, nor have I been tempted to.

Personal choice, but a cheap holiday isn't a good reason to endanger yourself - spend some more money and be at ease, I'm not sure I could relax.
Nice time of year to go, lovely temperatures.

Obviously, the Nile Cruise and stay aren't in the areas directly affected... But still...

Went to Egypt back in 2010, other than the military check points it felt rather touristy!

A lots happened since then but I doubt its any less safe than a city break in London these days ...

"There is no FCO advice against travel to Cairo, Alexandria, the tourist areas along the Nile river (including Luxor, Qina, Aswan, Abu Simbel and the Valley of the Kings) and the Red Sea resorts of Sharm el Sheikh and Hurghada."
Ref: https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/egypt
We're going to France next month so searched France that on there too and it states similar vigilance is advised so it seems to be everywhere. Had a similar discussion with a friend who's going to Marrakesh she was anxious but its everywhere you either decide to go on holiday or you don't. Personally it wouldn't and won't stop me visiting new places x
hurghada is just horrible
Hurghada is a nice beach resort city, great beaches, hotels, and night life too. Hotel staff treat tourists much better than nationals, so deal is worth it. I prefer Sharm el-sheikh though.
I totally agree. Money before security out there I'm afraid, such is the life of dire poverty and eternal hopelessness.

We (family of 4) spent 3 weeks at Easter travelling throughout Egypt from Cairo to Luxor and then onto Hurghada. We felt safe the entire time, the locals are friendly and given the reduced numbers of tourists all the major sights were much easier to appreciate. I can understand nervousness, but we reasoned that the worst can happen anywhere these days, and wasn't going to let that keep us at home and miss out on seeing this incredible country

​Why and how do hotel staff treat tourists much better than nationals?! Doesn't make sense!
How does that make the deal "worth it" ?!

Are you idiots really moaning about safety in other countries when our POS is getting bombed and attacked every other week?

I do yes. If it is safety related maybe I should go to Paris, London or Manchester instead..... Oh hold on...


You are aware that both the us and Canada warn about travel to the UK.

Yep, I know Thomas Cook have cancelled all it's Sharm El Sheikh holiday bookings for the winter of 2017/2018 and Summer 2018 as well as it's flights there and even if this holiday is not in one of the areas specified, the FCO still say “terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks in Egypt” and advises "you should be vigilant at all times."
