Nothing new under the sun.
It is like Berth said: http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hub...pt-new-63995-2
I took the ferry friday august 17th. Call the day before or same day in the
morning and be present at the harbour at 13H00 noontime.
Mr Ozer will assist with the procedure and with some luck you "board"
before dark. Expenses for me 175usd (my bike) plus 175 (myself) plus 50
handling fee; total 400usd for the ferry (alcor shipping)
What they do not tell you is: your passports are kept by the captain,
we asked for it on arrival, but passports are given in hands of
"nagar shipping", the handling agent at Port Said who welcomes you
with a smile, as charges for release,customs and more documents in
arab mount upto 600usd, that was for me and motorcycle.
I insisted to release my bike the next day: we had to make it next saturday for the ferry aswan-wadi. Next day we had our bikes but
wa paid 100usd more. Still better than to wait a week more in Aswan.
We were told that charges for motorcycle and/or car/jeep are same.
I have feeling that most of the money goes to the handling cie in Egypt,
but they split with plenty of officials, and all have smiles like a full grown banana.
If another entry to Africa is open next year, i would strongly suggest it,
but you know it all now
