Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Are there any available extra options eg. camel rides/donkey rides/nubian dinner etc.?

      We don't offer any donkey rides on this tour, however you'll have the opportunity to take a short camel ride whilst at the Pyramids. Our local guides whilst on the tour will help you to arrange this.

    • Where can I find more detailed information about this tour?

      A trip note will be given, which contains essential information about your trip - the daily itinerary, where to meet on the first day, what time the trip starts, how to get to the joining point hotel, included activities, visa information, etc. Please contact us for this.

    • I'll be arriving earlier than the scheduled tour, will it matter, especially with the accommodation?

      Day 1 is just an arrival day so it doesn't really matter what time you arrive on this day, though you'll only be able to access your hotel room from 2pm. At the end of the tour, the final day is also just a departure day so you can leave at anytime, though you'll need to vacate your hotel room by 12 midday.
