It's possible to arrange multiday sightseeing tours to the oases that include transportation, accommodation, meals, and desert tours. Expect to pay about $100 to $150 per person a day when booking from Cairo or abroad. Tours organized locally in the oases cost much less—about $50 per person a day—but then you have to make your own way out to the oases.
