"Nothing is free in Egypt!! If..." Egypt Tourist Trap Tip by SGM

Egypt Tourist Traps: 219 reviews and 112 photos

Nothing is free in Egypt!! If someone has approached you to help with something there's a 99% chance that it's going to cost you. If you don't mind paying - fine - if not, tell them to go away or just ignore them and eventually they will go away.
Touts will approach you in Cairo to book or take you on a Nile cruise between Luxor and Aswan - DON'T DO IT!! - Book your own cruise from Luxor, it will be much cheaper.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
