Questions & Answers

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

    • Are we going to be on a Nile cruise boat for this trip?

      A specific Nile cruise boat is not guaranteed on this tour as we work with a number of different cruise operators.

      In Egypt, tourist numbers are a bit low at the moment, which is why many companies won't guarantee sailings until closer to the travel date, when they have their final booking numbers.

      If booking numbers aren't sufficient, then cruises are consolidating bookings onto fewer ships, rather than sailing with lots of half empty boats. All of the boats we use are of 5-star level though and include en-suite cabins, swimming pool and all meals whilst onboard.

    • What boat is used for the Nile river Cruise?

      The Nile Cruise boats we use are a good 5* standard boats, like M/S Hames or similar. The have large windows but no balcony. There is the option to upgrade to a different boat with a balcony.

    • Can you please confirm that we should book flights to Cairo if we want to join this tour?

      The tour definitely starts and ends in Cairo and you should book flights into Cairo.
