LGBTQIA+ Guidance

  • Checking the ‘Local laws and customs’ section of your country's official foreign travel advice page
  • Looking for any updates for your desired destination on the Human Rights Watch LGBTQIA+ rights page
  • Buying a recommended guidebook, as many include an LGBTQIA+ section and advice for LGBTQIA+ travellers

Cultural Sensitivity 

On our tours you will frequently interact with local people, each with their own distinct customs and traditions. We therefore ask you to be considerate and to treat them with respect. Your tour-leaders and guides will always be able to advise you accordingly.

Food and drink 

Egyptian food reflects the country's melting-pot history, and many dishes have modified Greek, Turkish, Lebanese, Palestinian, and Syrian traditions to suit Egyptian tastes. 

Food in the south, closely linked to North African cuisine, is zestier than that found in the north, but neither is especially spicy.  

 Local cuisine tends to be hearty and the main staples are aysh (pitta type bread), ful (beans - often mashed with onions, tomatoes & spices), shurbha (soups), stews, mezze (dips such as humous and tahini), chicken, lamb and fish. 

Alcohol is available in Egypt, but standards vary wildly, and it can be expensive. Many travellers choose to bring their own supply.

Travelling Solo In Egypt

All of our small group tours are designed to cater for solo travellers: the number of solo travellers will vary from tour to tour, but usually over half will be travelling alone. Get all of the excitement of discovering new places combined with the security of travelling with an organised group, with like minded people.
