- Currency Exchange Service
Here in Egypt, the local currency is known as the Egyptian Pound. It can often be difficult to get smaller notes so it is advisable when you can, to change 200, 100 and 50 notes when you can to either 5, 10, or 20 Pound notes. The Hotel reception will offer you an exchange service and their will be a small commission charge on changing currencies ( they will take British Pounds, US Dollars and Euros). There are ATM machines and banks in Aswan City which will also take a small charge for using the machine overseas.
There is local transport in and around Aswan, with various options such as tours to Abu Simbel, and camel rides to St Simeon’s Monastery. Local Taxis are everywhere but not on the meter, so set a reasonable fare before getting in. There are also the local minibuses used by the locals, safe and very cheap but not really used by the tourists.Memphis Tours provides an excellent transport service with spacious vehicles taking you around Aswan and further afield.
