It depends, how many days you will spend but in normal I see that 120:150 Euros are very good
12) so can you give me general view and plan to the trip?
Yes sure , I have been to Europe so Egypt is completely different than it, it has advantages and disadvantages
The advantages are :
1- Egypt is very affordable for foreigners
2- Egypt has a lot of amazing monuments it's age before 4500 years like ( pyramids, sphinx, King Tut mask,.....)
3- Egyptian people are so kind and friendly
4- You can see and discover many things only in Egypt like amazing driving ....
5- Egyptian food are so tasty
6- The normal range in Egypt that's everything is open to 12 PM at least expect the historic places to 5 PM only
The disadvantages are :-
1- Cairo is very crowded and big so it's normal to take one or hours to go a place
2- the prices is different to the foreigners but don't worry it still affordable and also I will be with you
3- you need Egyptian one with you to lead you for everything and it's very difficult for you to can be dependant
13) what about the plan of the trip
