To give you the best value, we have arranged that an element of your trip cost is paid locally. This amount ($190 USD) is to be paid in cash on day 1 of your trip to your Trip Leader.
The pre-departure document lists loads of important information for your trip, including a price guideline for activities - please have a look. We offer a selection of sightseeing and optional excursions to create maximum flexibility for your particular interests and budget. The prices are meant only as a guide, but they give you a good idea of the funds you may need for your trip.
In regards to accommodation, we have been using the Indiana hotel for a number of years with very few complaints, and while it is a budget hotel, it has proved to be suitable for our trips. If you would like to arrange pre-trip accommodation, please contact our friendly reservations team and they will be happy to help you.
Feluccas are traditional Egyptian sailing boats that have been used as transport up and down the Nile for centuries. A trip on a felucca is particularly relaxing, as it is a simple boat with no engine or modern conveniences. You sleep on cushioned mattresses under a canopy for protection against the elements. Cooking is done on the boat, and is done by the felucca crew. You should be aware that toilet facilities on the banks of the Nile where we stop are minimal. Bring the toilet paper and leave the modesty at home.
Hope this information helps!
