This trip was truly awesome...particularly at the price point! What made the experience work well were the outstanding guides in Cairo and Luxor as well as the facilitator for the arrival and departing at the airports supplied by Wingbuddy’s agents on sight in Egypt.

The guide who took care of our group from Aswan to Luxor was the best we've ever had.

J'ai adoré ce voyage! Nous étions 5 dans le groupe. Très agréable. Je recommanderais ce voyage, surtout pour l'égypte. Une seule chose: Les pyramides et le musé. On gagnerait à faire les deux mais en 2 jrs. En une seule journée c trop court et dense. Je crois qu'il faudrait rajouter une journée au voyage et ce serait parfait. En 11 jrs plutôt que 10. Sinon, guide, chambre et visite: très agréable! Merci pour tout. Jakou.

Is it a guaranteed departure?

Yes, all our departures are guaranteed.

What is the group size?

Is triple occupancy available?

Triple occupancy is not available for this package. The reason is that the cabin on the cruise ship and the private compartment on the train can only accommodate 2 people. For 3 people traveling together, we will book 2 separate rooms. If you are traveling with young children, please mention it to your reservation agent.

Will there be someone waiting for us at the airport?

Yes, you may add extra nights to your package. We can add nights in Cairo before or after the tour. Simply make the request with your reservation agent who will change your flights accordingly.

Is it safe to go on this tour?

Yes, this package is very secure. At all times, you will be taken care of by your local expert guide who will accompany you everywhere you need to go. The places you will visit along the Valley of the Nile are no longer under travel advisory from the Government of Canada. All of our clients who took this tour have felt very secure throughout their entire stay. They have expressed their satisfaction to have finally been able to make their dream come true.

 

How is the night on the sleeping train?

The sleeping train will allow you to travel from Cairo to Aswan at night and directly check-in on the cruise ship the next day. Your guide will be with you on the train, the ride is about 12 hours. Supper and breakfast are served in the cabin. You will have a private compartment (for 2 people maximum) that you can close at night. There is a sink and an electrical outlet you can use, the bathroom is in the hallway. The sleeping arrangements are bunk beds and you will have a pillow, sheets and a blanket. It is definitely a local experience worth doing!

Do we need a visa?

For Canadian and US citizens, there is nothing to do before traveling. You will get your visa directly at destination, upon arrival at the airport. Our local operators will assist you. The visa fee is $25 USD approximately / person and can be paid in cash (in USD or Egyptian Pound).

While tradition is very important in the culture, you will be able to dress to your liking without too much trouble. You are not expected to wear local clothing.
