    The whole experience with your company was terrible but the tour guide was excellent. I will recommend Egypt but never this tour company - you have no concept of customer service or communication.

    I wouldn't change a thing - maybe just the sleeper train.

FAQs

    • Can we join the tour later or depart early?

      You may join the tour late or leave early, however, you may miss some of the highlights of the tour, and the price would remain the same.

    • Is this tour guaranteed departure?

      Yes, this tour is a guaranteed departure based on minimum 2 travellers.

    • Do you offer the Abu Simbel optional on this tour ?

      Abu Simbel overland tour is an optional experience offered on this tour (offered at an additional pricing). This option takes you from Aswan to see the amazing temples built by Ramses II at Aswan. You'll travel overland and return to Aswan by midday.

    • Are transfers included in the tour price?

      Our Egypt tours include a 24-hour airport meet & assist service in Cairo airport, your arrival and departure airport hotel transfers and all other transfers. Our representative will meet you in the immigration hall of Cairo airport before you get to passport control. They will assist with visa formalities before helping you collect your luggage and taking you to your hotel.

      Your airport transfers are only included on the first and last day of the set tour itinerary, plus on any additional days if you book your hotel room with us. If you make your own arrangements for additional accommodation at either the beginning or the end of the tour then you will need to arrange your own airport transfers on these days.

    • Can you tell me more about the Felucca?

      This tour features an overnight felucca cruise. Feluccas are very basic traditional Nile sailboats and are a fun and relaxing way to travel down the river. You sleep on the deck of the boat (mattresses and some blankets are provided, but we suggest that you bring a sleeping sheet, blanket or light sleeping bag during the winter months of November-February). There are no toilet facilities on board, but you will be joined several times each day and at night by our support boat where a toilet and warm showers will be available. Mosquito nets are provided for use while you are sleeping but you should bring mosquito repellent for the evenings and early mornings. Your Nubian boat crew will cook all your meals while on board and entertain you in the evenings.
