Plans can be customized to let you stay for only a few days or a couple of weeks, with many options to choose from once you've arrived. You can customize your plan to ensure every day is packed with sightseeing and rich tours. If your party is visiting for leisure, you can alternatively work with your tour guide to schedule extra breaks, so you can really experience the hotel.
Rather than just dropping you in Cairo, Inside Egypt's tours stretch all across this remarkable nation, particularly along the Nile River. Let your tour guides know which landmarks you want to see while planning your Egypt tour packages from the USA. Our largest packages can include up to 29 sites to visit with a maximum group size of 20 people.
Whether your group is more focused on Egyptian cuisine or landmarks, our experienced guides will schedule as many memorable stops as possible. If you already have a bucket list of things you want to do, send it to your tour guide, who will personalize your trip itinerary. Otherwise, you can leave all the planning to your guide and relax, knowing we've got the entire trip covered.
To best customize your vacation to your needs, Inside Egypt will need the following information:
The dates you plan to visit Egypt from the USA, including arrival and departure
The airport(s) you plan on arriving at and departing from
The number of days you plan to stay
The number of people in your party
The hotel category you want to stay at
Flights to Egypt from the US are more accessible today than before, with COVID-19 tests no longer required for travel. Egypt to the USA flight prices vary based on the airline, when you're traveling, and which airports you depart and arrive in. Egypt has 13 international airports, but we recommended starting your trip in Cairo.
Flights are not included in the final price of tour packages, and while Inside Egypt can help you somewhat, it is up to you and your party to book your airline tickets to the correct airports. Our tour guides are exceptionally knowledgeable about almost all of Egypt's major airports and will be able to help you determine the best flights, times, and airports to choose from.
The cost of Egypt travel packages from the USA depends on numerous factors, including how long you plan to stay, where you plan on visiting, or if you want to visit Jordan. It's important to note that exchange rates usually vary and may be different in the final price. Other factors, such as the types of rooms, the number of included meals, and pricier site visits, may also impact the total cost. Most packages are set up for twin and double-bed hotel rooms, so requesting a higher-end room would moderately increase prices.
Some of our most popular packages' prices include:
$3,495 (US) based on two travelers for for eight days
$4,385 (US) based on two travelers for for ten days
$4,895 (US) based on two travelers for for 14 days
There are many other costs to consider that aren't covered by the travel package, including the cost of flights, non-included meals, tips, and souvenirs.
One of the most critical steps when planning your vacation to Egypt from the USA is ensuring you meet all travel requirements, some of which are still changing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To travel to Egypt, Americans must have a travel visa and a passport with six months of validity and at least one blank page. Egypt's currency restriction for entry and exit is under $10,000, which may be important to consider when planning your trip.
Travel requirements to Egypt do not include any vaccinations; at this time, travelers do not need to take COVID-19 tests before entering the country. However, like all health and safety regulations during a pandemic, these may be subject to change. Egypt currently mandates that anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 must be quarantined for 14 days and may be fined or prosecuted for not complying. This law is essential to consider because, even though Egypt's airports don't require health screenings, you will not be able to travel out of the country during the quarantine period. It's crucial to be aware of all travel health notices before departing for your trip.
When you visit Egypt, you don't want to settle for whatever hotels still have vacancies. Instead, you want to guarantee yourself a stay in the hottest, most luxurious spots in all of Egypt. From an unbeatable cruise along the Nile River to a historic hotel and meeting place just outside the pyramids, Inside Egypt tour packages from the USA guarantee you get to see it all without having to make the complicated bookings yourself.
Marriott Mena House Hotel
Opened in 1869, the Marriott Mena House is a five-star hotel found at the feet of the pyramids in the Giza district near Cairo. Its extravagant rooms offer an unbeatable view of either the pyramids or the hotel's well-tended gardens. The hotel has two main wings and includes accommodations like a heated pool, jacuzzi, fitness center, sauna, and spa.
The Mena House Hotel has a rich history, having served as an Ally meeting place for President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Prime Minister Winston Churchill, and General Chiang Kai-Shek during World War II. In 1979, US President Jimmy Carter met with Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin to advance the Egypt-Isreal peace treaty. Many wings, suites, and framed photos honor these historic moments. Other notable guests have included Charlie Chaplin, Frank Sinatra, Barack Obama, Agatha Christie, and Will Smith.

If the MS Le Fayan specifically isn't available, another similar, luxurious cruise ship will be available instead.
The cruise lasts either three or six days, depending on your package, and usually starts in Luxor and ends south in Aswan. Rather than just visiting one city, our travel packages to Egypt let you visit numerous stops along the river to fully experience the Nile's history and culture. Some of the most significant landmarks you may stop at along the way include Thebes, Tutankhamun's tomb, Temple of Edfu, and Kom Ombo.

Unlike in the United States, tipping someone for good service is not always obligatory in Egypt. Instead, tipping is primarily reserved for exceptional work, to give someone a thank you, or to additionally compensate someone in a low-paying job for going above and beyond. Tipping is widespread in Egypt, not just at restaurants but also at stores, landmarks, and especially hotels. Egypt's tipping culture is very developed, and not tipping someone could easily be perceived as rude or ungrateful. Visitors unfamiliar with tipping in Egypt should keep extra US dollars (USD) or Egyptian pounds on hand, just in case.
US dollars are accepted in some locations in Egypt, particularly in tourist areas and hotels. However, some vendors may charge a higher rate for paying with USD, and most will only be able to provide change in Egyptian pounds.
Egyptian pounds are the preferred currency in the country and can be exchanged for US cash in many locations along the trip, including the Cairo airport 24 hours a day. For other options, ATMs are available in all major cities, and most businesses accept American Express, Mastercard, Visa, and Diners Club credit cards.
Be mindful that withdrawing money from an Egyptian ATM using an American credit card is possible. However, it's recommended to check with your bank if they have any international transaction fees before starting your tour to Egypt from the USA.
For an extra fee, visitors to Egypt can add a five-day vacation to Jordan to their trip. Our Egypt and Jordan Tours add a few five-star hotels in Jordan to your itinerary, starting and ending in Jordan's capital Amman. During the trip, you can visit Amman's 2nd-century Roman theater, the wonderous rock-carved caves of Petra, the Wadi Rum desert, Shobak Castle, and so much more. A Jordan tour extension can be added to your trip for $2,885 (US) per person on top of the Egyptian package's cost. Jordan trips are typically tagged to the ends of travel packages to Egypt, making the visit to this historic nation a worthy finale to your trip. Book your Egypt and Jordan Tour from the USA today and explore these two beautiful countries.
