Short trip to Egypt

Jump to last reply

I am planning a short stop in Cairo and Aswan Egypt. I have been reading some of the posts on here and other sites, and I have a few questions mainly about the currency. Right now 1 US dollar is worth 6 Egyptian Pounds. If I bought a shirt in the states for $5 would I pay 30LE for the same one in Egypt or is the pound seen as less? Also with the baksheesh what is a good amount? And how many LE is seen as a big amount of money?

I will be traveling independently but want to find a guide for the day. My stay will be for 4 days total after travel time. I want to see the sphinx and the great pyramids than travel to see Abu Simbel. I found a tour for each and since I will be going solo it will be a private tour with just the guide and me. The pyramids and sphinx for $76 and the private tour from Aswan to Abu Simbel is $225. I think this seems high but does that sound like a fair amount? They are with viators.com, this was suggested by a travel agent. I looked into Lady Egypt but they seem to only offer longer tours. Any suggestions for one or two day tours?
