Douglas' review for another Intrepid Travel tour
“Was busy before joining the tour so really looking forward to wind down and get a well-deserved break. Starting in the hotspot of San Francisco and finishing in mind-blowing LA, with a lot of great flora and fauna in between. Our guide was knowledgeable and managed to make everything smooth. Was fortunate to join a great group of people as well.”

Juergen's review for another Intrepid Travel tour
“Mixture is great but some hotels should/must be changed
First Hotel in Ubud should be changed (smell in the room, dark)
Last Hotel in Sanur must be changed. After the other hotels, this standard "business" hotel is not an adequate end of the tour. Simply no atmosphere”

“This tour was fantastic.
My tour guide, Kelly, was super knowledgeable, funny, and a pleasure to be around!
The group of people from different countries, regions, and ages made it the best tour I have been on.

Below are a few highlights:
1. BBQ in the Grampians
2. Bay of Martyrs
3. Seeing koalas and kangaroos in their natural habitat
4. The scenery along the Great Ocean Road
5. A boomerang lesson
6. The entire trip was lovely.”

Is this trip right for you:
  • Egypt can get very hot, particularly in the summer months of July and August. Where possible we try and visit sites in the early morning before it gets too hot. While the heat is generally dry and easier to cope with than humidity, please consider your suitability to the time of year you wish to travel.
  • The best (and only) way to explore many of the region’s ancient sites is on foot. The walkways around ruins can be uneven, dusty and rocky, so be sure to bring sturdy walking shoes. At major sites such as the Pyramids, Petra and Wadi Rum, you will be exposed to the elements at length, so be prepared with a hat, sunscreen and plenty of water. A reasonable level of fitness is required to enjoy exploring these sites.
  • One of the benefits of a Comfort-style trip is that we use private transport where possible. As the traffic in Cairo and surrounding areas can be chaotic, we ask that you come prepared with patience.
  • Accommodation aboard the Nile River cruise is full board, but all drinks you purchase on board are at your own expense. An evening entertainment program is also available on board.
  • Accommodation on the overnight train is in two-berth cabins with bunk beds. All bedding is provided on board and western-style toilets are located in each carriage. Keep in mind general train cleanliness may not be to the same standards you are accustomed to.
  • In Wadi Rum we stay in a permanent tented camp with shared bathroom facilities. Please be aware that while the desert may be very hot during the day, it will still be cool at night and warm clothes and a sleeping bag is highly recommended when travelling outside of the summer months.
