Hi All,

We to go to were supposed to go to Morocco in a few weeks, but they are now on the highest Covid alert and had to change our plans. We will go to Egypt instead and will have 7 full days there. I love to plan and research but don't have a lot of time to do so with this trip and I was hoping to get answers to get quick answers to a few questions.

We were thinking of the following itinerary:

2 days Cairo

Plane or train to Luxor. 2 days in Luxor.

Plane or train to Hurghada. 1 or 2 days in Hurghada.

Best way to get from Cairo to Luxor. Luxor to Hurghada, Hurghada to Cairo?

We would like guides in Cairo and Luxor. Approximate cost? Guide recommendations?

Hotel and restaurant recommendations appreciated. We like higher end hotels and are adventurous eaters who do not shy away from street food.

What is the current mask wearing mandate? Are people complying or is it loosely enforced?

Thank you so much!

Oh no one is forced wearing masks but if you are at a good/reputable hotel, crew will be wearing. Same if using good a good agency, Driver and guides will be wearing masks....you can confirm this with them before booking
