    I just returned from the Egypt tour!

    The visa was very easy to get at the airport and it cost $15 USD (you must pay in dollars not Egyptian pounds). When you arrive, first go to the two visa stations and then make the line for the passport verification station. After getting your passport verified and stamped, you’ll move to the baggage claim area where the Contiki rep will be waiting for you. Just look for the bright Contiki sign and the rep should be wearing a suit. If you get the same guy, he is very sweet and he’ll answer any questions you have on the ride to the hotel. There were a few tour mates in the airport transfer so I wasn’t by myself.

    Let me know if you have any other questions!! Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    The visa is almost stupid easy to get! I wish I had’ve waited and gotten it at the airport instead of doing it ahead of time. You’ll def. save money doing it that way and it’s not a big stress.

    If you want to know you have it you can get it in your home state or city. Most of the time it costs the same $15 that they would have charged you in Egypt.
