Is this trip right for you?
There are a lot of early morning starts on this itinerary where we visit sites early to beat the heat, and avoid the crowds. These are often balanced out with free afternoons and evenings.
Egypt can get incredibly hot in the summer months of July and August. Regardless of the month, it does heats up quickly during the day and there will be some site visits with little or no shade.
Some of the sites you will visit involve walking on rocky and/or steep hillsides, and there is often little or no shade. Comfortable, sturdy walking shoes and a hat are essential.
Accommodation aboard the Nile riverboat is full board – breakfast, lunch and dinner are included. Drinks are offered from the bar area for an additional cost. An evening program is also available.
