Listed below is a selection of optional extras that can be added to your tour. Just select which options you want to add to your booking when you reserve your tour, or alternatively just let us know and we'll add them to your booking. Further options are also available when you get to Egypt (such as Sound & Light shows, dinner cruises, scuba-diving courses).
If you are a single traveller, then you need to add this single room supplement option to your booking. Triple rooms are not available on the cruise boats, so if you have an odd number of people in your party, you will also need to add this option. Couples will always be given a private double room. Please contact us if you have any queries about room allocations.
Note - Prices shown are for the Egyptian low-season of May to September - higher supplements may be required during high & peak seasons. These are shown on our online reservation form and are also available on request.
The awesome temples at Abu Simbel are a must see for anyone travelling to Egypt. Lying 280 km south of Aswan these remarkable temples were dismantled and rebuilt stone by stone to escape the rising waters of lake Nasser, and stand as a testament to the greatness of the Pharaoh Ramses II, and to modern engineering. We travel in a private minibus/coach and join the early morning escorted convoy which departs Aswan at 04.30, returning by around midday (approx. 3 hours drive each way, with 2 hours at the temples, timed to be shortly after sunrise). An Egyptologist guide and the entrance fee (approx. US$15) are included. Our itineraries are designed so that you do not miss out on any other activities if you choose this option.
This spectacular flight runs early in the morning over the West Bank of the Nile in Luxor, so that you catch the sunrise over the Valleys of the Kings & Queens, temples and desert. Start times vary through the year, but the option is priced to use one of the very first flights in the morning that are timed to fit with the rising sun. You get around 1 hour in the air. We normally book the flight for the morning before your West Bank tour).
There is a minimum number of people required for the trips to run, and weather conditions are also an issue, so we can't guarantee that the trip will run everyday (they are rarely cancelled however). You can either book and pay for this option in advance to secure a sunrise flight, or arrange it when you get to Egypt when we can't guarantee this. Once booked and paid for, refunds are not available if you choose not to do the option while you are in Egypt, though of course if it is cancelled we will refund you in full.

"Fantastic country, wonderful food, exceptional diving, beautiful weather - truly a holiday of a lifetime. From the easy to navigate website to the excellent customer service and helpful, friendly tour reps, the trip was well organised from start to finish. The tour guide (Ahmed) was outstanding and made the Egyptian history fun and informative. The whole trip - WOW!"
