Questions & Answers

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

    • March 1, 2017

      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.

    • October 1, 2016

      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.

    • Lynette12th April 2018
      I haven't travelled yet but from what I've seen so far I'm extremely happy I have chosen to travel with TourRadar. From my very first enquiry I was impressed. I had been researching a number of companies to find the right tour for us but all the others took their time in replying and I had to ask a number of times for information. The team at TourRadar were always prompt with answering me and very forthcoming with information. The website was easy to use and I was very impressed that it had so much information. What information I couldn't find on the website was quickly given to me once I asked. Would I refer TourRadar to my friends.....I already have! Now I can't wait to travel
