Tips and information

I am going to Egypt with a Jordan extension in the middle of January. The group that I am going with is called Overseas Adventure Travel. Has anyone else gone on this particular trip? I have gone with OAT before and found them excellent--maximum of 16. However, there are a couple of evenings that we are on our own for dinner. Any suggestions? Also, any tips as far as what is the mode of dress, what are good "buys", etc. would be appreciated.

Judy,

I recommend a restaurant called "Felfela" and another called "Arabesque" in Cairo. very interesting decor and good food.

tips for good buys: papyrus, gold jewellery, silver, alabaster:typical Egyptian souvenirs. if you are interested in that kind of thing, you could order a cartouche made in gold with your name written in heiroglyphics. Incidentally, we found the Khal el Khalili to have the maximum bargains compared to markets in Luxor/Aswan, etc., but dont forget to bargain.
