Gratuities and Tipping:

How much is the average Tipping and when to give it?

Nile Cruise Crew:

On Average there are about 50 to 70 people working in the Nile Cruise boat. The Guest sees only 5 or 7 persons of the crew. So it is unfair to give tips to people that you see and forget other people. That’s why there is a rule in all Nile Cruises that Guest should not pay any tips for anyone during the Nile Cruise Trip. All Tips must be given at the end of your trip. You put your tips in an envelope and write the amount on the back then leave it at the Reception of your Nile Cruise. All Tips will be collected from clients and divided to the whole Cruise Staff. This is a Fair solution for everyone.

The Tips is about 3 to 5 US$ Per Person per Night. For Example, if you are 2 Person and having a 3 Nights’ accommodation in Nile Cruise your Tip Amount will be:

4 US$ x 4 Nights x 2 Person = 32 US$.

So you Leave 32 US$ in an Envelope at the Reception on the End of your Nile Cruise Trip.

 

For The Drivers, Representatives and Guides:

The following amounts are Recommended and on a Per Person Basis (in American Dollars USD).

Luxor Representative 3 to 5 US$

Aswan Representative 3 to 5 US$

Guides 5 to 7 US$ (Per Day)

Drivers 3 US$ (Per Day)

Horse Carriage in Edfu 4 US$ per Carriage

 

Please Note:

Tips are not an obligation on you. It is redemption for a good service. However wages in Egypt are very low. So most people depend on tips to survive, but this is not an excuse to give a bad service. If you feel that the person is not offering you a good service or stressing you to give him tips, DO NOT GIVE TIPS or REDUCDE THE AMOUNT. But please tell him why you did that. In most cases if you don’t give tips, people such as Driver, Cruise Staff, Felucca Captain or Carriage Car Driver will think that you gave the tips to your guide to give it to them and will start a Hard Talking with him about that and waste your time.

Alabaster Stones:

The use of alabaster in Egypt dates well back into the Pharaonic period of Egyptian history, and this is very evident when one visits the temples, tombs and museums in Egypt. New pieces of alabaster from ancient Egypt seem to turn up constantly.

The ancient pharaohs used this wonderful material for many purposes, including household items, ritual objects, and for a number of different funerary purposes such as sarcophaguses and canopic equipment. Some of the finest ancient artifacts made from alabaster can be found in the Tutankhamun collection of the Egyptian museum, where we find a variety of different items made from this material.

Alabaster is a fine-grained, massive, translucent variety of gypsum, a hydrous calcium sulphate. It is pure white or streaked with reddish brown. Like all other forms of gypsum, alabaster forms by the evaporation of bedded deposits that are precipitated mainly from evaporating seawater. It is soft enough to be scratched with a fingernail and hence it is easily broken, soiled, and weathered. Because of its softness, alabaster is often carved for statuary and other decorative purposes. The often-used term “Oriental Alabaster” is a misnomer and actually refers to marble, a calcium carbonate, whereas gypsum is a calcium sulphate.

 

Perfume:

There are plenty of perfume shops in tourist areas of Egypt.

The perfume is mostly the same everywhere, or at least their components.

They may even be made in just a few places and then delivered to the shops.

IT IS NOT a modern perfume that could scent you for the day!

The perfume is beautiful and pleasant.
