We enjoyed very much the stay. The Riad with a pool and a terrace is right at the medina gate. Very easy to reach by car what is important because cars cant drive easily in the Medina. The Riad is real oasis in the busy...More

Please can somebody advise on the tipping for various staff per day or week? ie front desk, waiting staff, chambermaids(if that is still a PC term), etc. Also, having gone all inclusive of tipping in Egypt to avoid the continual round of tipping, can anyone comment on the most painfree way of dealing with it as of course we want to reward good service but also relax. Do the waiting staff expect to be tipped at breakfast each morning, or at the end of the stay.
Help would be appreciated.

The tipping is not necessary in our Riad and our staff will never require tips, except if you give some yourself at your convenience.
