Janice's review for another Intrepid Travel tour
“Our trip was very good for the money. The accommodations were adequate, our guide handled a lot of the details and we had time to explore on our own. Best for people traveling solo or as a couple.”

Is this trip right for you:
  • Before booking on this trip we recommend that you read the ‘Safety’ section in the Essential Trip Information regarding special safety considerations for Egypt trips.
  • Egypt can get hot in with the summer months of July and August, being the warmest but this is normally a dry heat and easier to cope with than humidity. Where possible we try and visit sites in the early morning before it gets too hot.
  • Accommodation aboard the Nile cruise is based on a full board basis, not including drinks which are paid separately by passengers. An evening entertainment program is also available onboard.
  • The walkways around ruins can be uneven, dusty and rocky, so be sure to bring sturdy, comfortable walking shoes. At major sites such as the Pyramids, you can expect to be exposed to the elements at length, so be prepared with a hat, sunscreen and plenty of fluids.
  • Cairo and surrounds traffic can be notorious as can the level of pollution so be prepared for one of the busiest cities in North Africa.
