Meals during your holiday: Most meals are not included in the travel price. This gives you the opportunity to eat where and with whom you like. Breakfast, however, is always included. Generally you will eat in small groups in restaurants serving local specialties. Your travel guides can always suggest good places to eat, but it is of course also nice to discover them by yourself. In restaurants with local customers meals are generally of high quality and not too expensive.
Drinking: You cannot drink tap water. On the Egyptian roundtrips there is plenty of mineral water and soft drinks for sale. Ice cubes are often made from tap water; it is not recommended to use them. Hot drinks like tea or carcadee (hibiscus tea) usually go down better in warm countries than ice-cold drinks. Alcoholic drinks are relatively expensive.
