What kind of food can I expect in Egypt?
Food in Egypt involves such things as kebabs, chicken, stews, pitta bread, falafel, beans, aubergine and other vegetables, pickles, salads and the like. Dishes tend to be simple and wholesome and vegetarians can be catered for if they accept that the options may be somewhat limited! Bottled water and soft drinks are also available everywhere.

What kind of clothing is best in a Muslim country?
You are visiting a predominantly Muslim country, therefore you should dress modestly at all times when visiting cultural sites, and there may also be times when you are asked to 'cover up'. During your trip the tour leader will always advise you on appropriate dress for each day's activities.
If you are asked to 'cover up', you'll need to cover your shoulders, arms and legs. We recommend packing lightweight trousers or a long skirt, and a long sleeved shirt. Women may also be required to cover their hair with a scarf if entering a mosque or religious quarters.

Will Ramadan affect my trip?
Please note that the holy month of Ramadan will take place from the 20th of July to the 18th of August 2012 (dates can shift slightly). This is a time when followers of Islam do not eat or drink between sunrise and sunset. This can sometimes affect the opening hours of certain tourist sites. However we will ensure that that the itinerary is affected as little as possible if you travel during this period. Food and drink is available to tourists during the day.
