I hunted around (and purchased) many books about Egypt in an attempt to familiarise myself with the culture and the history and, had I not stumbled accross this litle gem of a book I find my self wondering what may have been!
Every book you find on the shelf tells you about the history, the places to visit and the culture in Egypt, however this book provides something more - something that I wasn't even aware that I needed in the first place.
Travel Egypt Nile Cruise is for today's tourist.
There is a good deal of information about the sights to see and Egyptian history (enough to keep anyone happy); however, this book really stands alone as the author covers a wide range of topics from bartering tricks and tips to sunstroke avoidance on those long tourist outings. Her no nonsense and whimisical approach kept me informed and entertained throughout. Some of the advice proved invaluable during our stay and I'm sure would prove just as invaluable to other 'First Timers'. (Check out the bit about the boat trip!!!)
This book didn't just provide me with information on what to see and where to go; it gave me an insight on how to get there and how to act in this strange yet amazing country.
An invaluable, superb book. A must if you are visiting Egypt (or indeed any middle east country) for the first time, the second time or even if you are a regular vistor. This author really knows her stuff!
It does what it says on the tin.
It answered all the many question my wife and myself had about travelling to Egypt for the first time.
How to deal with bartering.
What currency do we need to take?
What Clothing to wear?
How do we get the visa we require?
It answered all our questions far better than any Travel Agent ever could.
Our boat, the Terramar, was excellent, but you will have to buy your Galabeya outfit. Janet Wood says be ready to pay 100 Egyptian pounds each. We paid 200 each for quite basic stuff, others spent more. But we would not have been without our outfits for that evening which was very good fun.
Our week on the Terramar was first class and we recommend it thoroughly as a superb holiday.
