Tourists from Slavic countries infuriate the Egyptians with their ability to be late everywhere and always forget something. The Poles are especially successful in this: they are late for excursions, constantly keep themselves waiting, lag behind the group and at the same time find fault with local guides and hotel staff. But it is very easy to gather disciplined and punctual Germans into a group. “They don’t delay a full bus, they don’t get lost on excursions and they don’t remember on the go that they forgot their room key,” says the administrator of one of the hotels in Hurghada.
4. Bad manners
The most noisy and ill-mannered in Egypt are vacationers from Arab countries. They come with large families, communicate at maximum volume and never make comments to their children, who run around the hotel screaming. Rather, they will straighten up an employee who tried to reason with the kids.

The rates of service personnel in Egyptian hotels and restaurants, to put it mildly, are low, because they count on tips and dislike stingy tourists. The Russians were not noticed in greed, but the Germans and the British are in no hurry to part even with a trifle. Arabs also like to save on tips: if an Arab husband has paid “all inclusive” for all his wives and children, you can not count on baksheesh from him.
