    There was too much free time and no suggestions of what we could do during the that time.

FAQs

    • Does overnight on coach means we sleep on the coach for the night?

      This tour doesn't include any overnight coach journeys but does include 2 overnight train journeys onboard the Sleeper Train. On this train you'll be allocated a private 2 birth cabin with fold down beds. The cabins have their own wash basin inside and shared toilets at the end of each carriage. There aren't any showers onboard the train unfortunately.

    • Is there a single supplement available on this tour?

      Yes. Please take note that there will be an extra charge for a single supplement room. Please contact us to arrange this.

    • Can I possibly share a room with same sex?

      If you'd like to have a same gender shared room, it can be arranged, please contact us for this.

    • I was wondering if the trips are customisable. I already have my flights and could not complete a full 9 day tour. but would be interested to know my options for departing from it early.

      Unfortunately our group tours start and end on specific days. We can however offer you a private tour based on your arrival and departure flights. Please contact us to arrange this.

    • Can you advise of the hotel for each city? We also prefer 5 star hotels, otherwise at least 4 star.

      On the Nubian Adventure tour, they make use of good 4-star and a 5-star hotel. These are always subject to change, but they are currently having the Oasis Hotel in Giza, Isis Corniche in Aswan, and Nile Palace in Luxor.

      On the group tours, they make use of two-way sleeper train journeys and group transport during the daily sightseeing. Flight upgrades are also available.
