No you don't have to give your credit card information to book a tour in Egypt especially that there are travel agencies here on cc (Ramses tours, Memphis tours , Egypt shore excursions) that accept payment at end of tourMemphis wanted 25% payment upfront. We decided not to use them even though they had the best rate at a couple of hotels we had asked about and Ramses could not match the price on at least one (Fairmont).
Anyway, sorry so long, just wanted u to see what can happen.
we r going back in nov, our cruise critic group have set up tours with ramses with no deposit but i know theyre big and will show up. We have one scheduled for haifa, israel that required %30 deposit, i paid it gladly just to know itll mean a stress free day.
Have a great time,

There is risk on both sides...
they send driver/guide and you don't show...
You give deposit and they don't show...
Didn't catch where you are from, but if in the US, you are not liable if it's fraudulent on your CC.
I have done dozens of private tours, some require full pre-pay, some require deposit, some are full payment at end. In all cases i have never had a bad experience with any company/guide.
