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).
On this tour you join with the resident Egyptologist guides based on board the cruise boat and do your sightseeing tours with them. However we are also able to send one of our own Egyptologists on the boat with you, so that you do all the sightseeing tours privately, with just yourselves and our guide. This gives you more flexibility, and if you'd like it, more in depth and personalised explanations of all the historical sites you're visiting. Prices shown are based on 4+ people travelling, with higher costs if the are 1, 2 or 3 travellers (see reservation form or contact us for details).
This option guarantees you a single cabin for all 14 nights on board the cruise boat. If you are a single traveller joining one of our group departures, then if you wish we can try to pair you up with another single traveller of the same sex who is happy to share. If we do not have a sharer available at the time of booking, we will add this option to your invoice, but refund or remove it later if a sharer becomes available.
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.
"I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I was with the holiday and that was down to the country itself, the fantastic itinerary, and the wonderful people involved with Egypt Uncovered."
