Traveling solo:how do I go about booking a tour?

I got in touch with a couple of tour operators, all of them give quotes for the entire jeep. Will I find a group to share a jeep with when I get to Bahariya? Do enough travelers go to Bahariya these days(going in Dec 2013)?

How much should I expect to pay for a 1 night safari with a stay at the White desert, sharing with other people.

From what I've heard, it's not very difficult to get people to share with,but then you never know,tourism is down these days. One of the tour operators has asked me to email him some 15 days before.

Nevertheless, it would be great if someone knows how much we should pay for a typical 1 day 1 night white and black desert tour(like per person). And are there loads of travel agents who will try to get a deal when you arrive in bahariyya?

Hi! I traveled solo to Egypt last November 2012 and went to White Desert. It was part of a package tour. Feel free to message me if you have any questions. I had no major problems traveling solo, and the company I got did not charge me extra--which was great.

I agree though about finding people to go with on a jeep to Bahariya. My experience was that I had to take the bus (because the package I got was a budget one), and the bus was quite an inconvenience. A jeep from Cairo to Bahariya would indeed be better.
