    Don’t bother with Egyptian currency. You will get ripped off when you buy it, and the Egyptians sure hate it when you try to use it. They like getting tips in US dollars, but even more so in Euro dollars, which is like gold to them. Don’t expect any Egyptians to be grateful for tips or honest with their prices. I found that almost all of them just wanted more and more money and acted like jerks even if I OVER-tipped them. In fact I don’t think I’d tip anyone in Egypt if I went there again, unless they actually deserve it (which only 3 people did in my last trip), and never because they demand it.

    Im egyptian …usually the people who will serve u arent that rich and are in need of money and they will appreciate anything ull give them….ofcourse better give them egyptian pounds they can use immediately but as u know 1 dollar equals about 5 pounds so they definitely will be happy about it…So tip with what u want …But still tip using pounds better .
