Is this trip right for you?

  • Morocco is a large country with few means of public transportation and airport access. In order to see the best parts, there are some long drives. There are always beautiful views and things to see on the way, but be ready for long drives. 
  • We will be in some remote corners of the country where public bathrooms are not always very clean and may require a bit of change to use. The facilities in our accommodation are clean and use western toilets, but it won’t always be the case on the road. 
  • We stay in a lot of unique accommodation, so rooms are not always equal in size or view. We do our best to keep it even throughout the trip, but some may get luckier than others. We guarantee twin beds, but sizes may also vary even between roommates. 

Egypt: Most countries are able to visit Egypt with a visa upon arrival. It currently costs $25 (this can change any time without warning). 

Morocco: A visa upon arrival for stays less than 90 days is available for many nationalities.

What our travelers say

This tour was epic in every way

Women group solo trip

“This was my 2nd solo trip with SoFe. I initially went to Bali and because that tour was so good I decided to go to Egypt meetup and I am so happy that I did. This tour was EPIC. I am even planning on going on this same tour again to experience it all over again!” Aihee R. | Egypt & Bali 

 

This trip was everything and more

Egypt Female Solo Tour

“I’m 100% going to book another trip, although this one will be hard to beat. This trip was everything and more I could ever ask for. I saw places I only ever saw in photos, experienced “Egyptian Hospitality” first hand, had stereotypes of the middle east shattered, watched the sunrise over the Sahara, swam in the Nile AND the Red Sea, and danced to the sound of Nubian drums on a felucca at sunset on the Nile. How could a girl ever ask for more? This trip was the perfect blend of history and education, culture, great food, bucket list items completed, and topped off with even better company.” Dani B. | Egypt

The Egypt SoFe trip was life-changing.

Solo Female Network Tour Egypt

“The Egypt SoFe trip was life-changing, truly! From our amazing egyptologist guide, Sameh, to the sites and wonders of Egypt, and the amazing women that I got to meet and travel with, it was extraordinary. The experiences shared and the memories made are unparalleled and will hold a place in my heart forever. Thank you SoFe Traveler Network.” Darlyne M. | Egypt
