NOTES:
The Dahabiya: The Dahabiya’s are working boats, as such they can sometimes have some peeling paint, small broken items and other small signs of wear due to the intense travel during the busy season. It is a unique and memorable adventure traveling up the Nile on one of these private boats and provides a very intimate experience with our small group of 8 travelers and our guide, plus the boat staff. These boats are owner and operated by local families who take create pride in working hard to make travelers’ stay as enjoyable as possible. Traveling by Dahabiya lets us design a one-of-a-kind itinerary that the larger boats simply cannot do – such as stopping at el Kab, or visiting a local family in Besaw Island or walking through Daraw market. You will feel like you are truly exploring the Nile! Note: Dahabiya’s do not always have working AC.

Nile Cruise Itinerary: We do our best to follow this Nile Cruise itinerary, but it is subject to changes or adjusts due to Nile water heights (which impacts where the boats can motor), unexpected closures of temples, changes in situations with the local families and craftsman and other unforeseeable events. Due to traveling upriver the Dahabiya’s primarily are pulled by tug boats.

We do our best to follow this itinerary, but sites can close unexpectedly and without prior notice according to the discretion of the Ministry of Antiquities. For most tomb sites and some temples, there is a rotation between the tombs and areas of the temples open to the public to allow for restoration work. Itineraries, transportation and hotels are subject to change. We do our best to follow the laid out itinerary, but sometimes unforeseeable situations arise. Traveling in developing nations, transportation, hotels, restaurants and sites can close with little warning due to continuous growth and change. The guide retains the right to change the itinerary for safety and convenience of the travelers. Due to the limited number of Dahabiya boats – if we need to change Nile cruise boats due to unforeseen situations or last minute boat cancelations, we may need to change to a different style of boat or a boat shared with other travelers.

Interested in arriving early or extending your time in Egypt? We have some optional day trips you could add on the before or after the main tour. These are all private tours and not part of the group tour. We can arrange these private day tours for your individual group.

Day Tour Add-ons:

1/2 Day Dahshur Pyramids:

While most travelers visit the Great Pyramid, the impressive Dahshur Pyramids often are overlooked. Built by Pharaoh Snefru, Pharaoh Khufu’s father, visiting the Dahshur Pyramids provides a chance to follow the evolution of the pyramids. It always gives you the opportunity to quietly enjoy these incredible structures without the throngs of tourists found at the Giza Plateau.

We recommend a morning departure for this tour.

Tour includes: driver, English-speaking Egyptology guide and site entrance fee. Lunch is not included in the price.

1/2 Day Coptic and Islamic Cairo & Jewish Synagogue

This half day tour visits the sites of Coptic Cairo, mosques in Islamic Cairo (not the Citadel) and the Khan el-Khalili grand bazaar. We will also visit the historic Jewish quarter and one of the oldest synagogues in Cairo.

The exact sites visited in each area vary as the Coptic Churches, Synagogues, and Mosques rotate which buildings are open. These buildings are subject to unexpected closures due to private events.

This tour can be booked for the morning or afternoon.

Tour includes: driver, English-speaking Egyptology guide and site entrance fee. Lunch is not included in the price

Full Day Alexandria Tour

Visit the city of Alexander the Great! Explore the catacombs, learn about Alexandria’s thousands of years of history at the archaeology museum, see where the famous Pharos Lighthouse once stood (one of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World), and dine on seafood overlooking the Mediterranean.

Tour includes: driver, English-speaking Egyptology guide, site entrance fees, lunch.

Please note this is a full day tour. The drive between Alexandria and Cairo is 3-4 hours (sometimes more depending on traffic). Usually you depart very early in the morning and arrive back to Cairo in the evening.

For questions about these day tour options please contact our tour specialists at [email protected] or by phone +1 (856) 272-4236.

  • Small group of 6-8 like-minded travelers. (Minimum of 6 travelers for this trip and a maximum of 8 travelers). A fraction of the size of most tour groups in Egypt, which usually range from 24-50 travelers in size. This small-group tour provides an intimate and personal experience in Egypt.
  • Full-time knowledgeable, engaging professional local ArchaeoAdventures female Egyptology Guide and Tour Leaderwho will bring to life Egypt’s rich, complex and important history, as well as, help you understand the Egypt and its culture.
  • All site entrance fees – at no extra cost. This includes admission fees to the Giza Plateau, Great Pyramid, the Sphinx, Saqqara, Abu Simbel, Philae, Kom Ombo Temple, Edfu Temple, Luxor Temple, Karnak Temple, Deir el-Bahari, Valley of the Kings (entrance to three tombs), Tutankhamun’s Tomb, Deir el-Medina, Valley of the Queens, Colossi of Memnon, the Citadel of Saladin and Mohamed Ali Mosque, the Cairo Museum, the Royal Mummy Exhibit. (Sites may be subject to change. We do our best to follow this itinerary, but sites can close unexpectedly and without prior notice according to the discretion of the Ministry of Antiquities. For most tomb sites and some temples, there is a rotation between the tombs and areas of the temples open to the public to allow for restoration work. )
  • Dawn Hot Air Balloon Ride over Luxor’s West Bank.
  • All breakfasts, and selected lunches and dinners. Meals that are not covered are carefully chosen to give travelers the most flexibility in variety, enjoying free time, and the chance to explore new food they wish to try. For meals which aren’t covered travelers should budget $10-$15 lunches and $15-$20 dinners.
  • Tour in-country transportation including all ground transportation while on tour, transportation to and from the airport, and in-country flights between Cairo, Aswan and Luxor.
  • Memorable, comfortable hotels each with their own story and place in history. Our hotels range from comfortable hotels next to the Pyramids to traditional eco-friendly Nubian Guesthouses.
  • Private Dahabiya Nile cruise from Luxor to Aswan in our private Nile cruise boat. This let’s us run a very unique journey up the Nile that feels like a small group of travelers exploring the Nile independently. We get to dock at islands, visit local families, visit small sites, stop at local markets and slowly take in the beauty of the Nile. The large boats cannot do this and only dock at the major sites of Kom Ombo and Edfu.
  • Guaranteed tour price. Once you make your deposit your price is locked and guaranteed.
  • No in-country cash payment. Many tour companies require in-country cash payments. This is a way to keep the initial tour price appearing low, while you actually pay a much higher price for the tour. We believe in the costs being upfront and no hidden fees. We include all tour costs in the listed price.
  • Optional single supplement. Looking to bunk by yourself in your own room? We’ve included a number of single rooms for an additional fee. (Due to our group size being small we cannot pair solo travelers and instead encouragers looking to travel with someone to bring a friend or colleague.) Our single supplement covers the extra cost for individuals to room by themselves. Because we use a private Dahabiya we have a very limited number of rooms on this tour. The hotels and boat charge the same price whether one traveler or 2 use the room. To reduce the cost of the single supplement for the traveler we do not mark-up the single supplement cost. The rate is what the lodging providers charge for the rooms.
  • Free time. We know how important it can be to have a little time built in for you to explore on your own or simply take a moment to relax. We’ve carefully planned our tours to provide you a balance between structured travel and free time.
  • Flights to and from Egypt. Note this tour begins and ends in Cairo, Egypt.
  • Beverage purchases at meals. Water will be provided at meals. Travelers are responsible for additional beverages.
  • Any alcoholic beverage purchases.
  • Bottled water (outside of meals) and snacks. We recommended budgeting $5 per day for bottled water and snacks.
  • Selected lunches and dinners. See the Detailed Itinerary for which lunches and dinners are not included. We recommended budgeting $15-$20 for lunches and $20-25 for dinners.
  • Tips for the Tour Guide/Tour Leader and the Boat Crew. Please see tipping guidelines for recommended amounts.
  • Visa (purchased at the airport when you arrive in Egypt). American can budget $25 (though this price may be increasing). For other nationalities check with your local embassy for the Egypt Visa costs.
  • Traveler’s Insurance. All travelers are required to have traveler’s insurance for this trip. Plans usually start at $80 and can cost as much as $500 depending on the extent of the coverage you wish to have. Check with your health insurance company regarding if they cover illness overseas and how to file a claim if you are sick overseas. Not all insurance companies cover overseas illness. We require all travelers to be fully covered for medical coverage and trip cancellation.

Only the deposit is due at the time of booking to secure your spot on this tour.

Our tour prices are an excellent value and a good investment, while also reflecting our beliefs in responsible travel. We believe that part of responsible tourism, of traveling with intention and being accountable for our choices, is using the economic power of travel to employ qualified and talented local women guides, tourism professionals and help local communities through good tourism jobs. When you book a trip with ArchaeoAdventures you are actively helping economically empower local communities and local tourism professionals in Egypt.

Deposits: The deposit to secure your spot on this tour is 25% of the total tour cost (including single supplement rate and any extras or add-ons purchased through ArchaeoAdventures). Your deposit is refundable for 30 days from the date your deposit was paid (deposits made 120 days or less are non-refundable). After 30 days your deposit is no longer refundable and will be forfeited if you cancel your tour booking. Please note that due to the high demand of the Dahabiyas (and wanting to give our travelers the best boat possible) we secure our boat far in advance and do not refund deposits that are made 120 days before the tour departure date.

Payment is due in full 60 days prior to the departure date. No refunds will be issued once tour payment is due in full.

Payment is due:

March 1-12, 2019 Tour: Tour payment is due in full December 31, 2019

Overdue fees begin to accrue the day after final payment is due. If payment in full is not received within 7 days after final payment is due, the traveler forfeits their spot on the tour.

Returning Tour Member Discount: Returning Tour Members receive $50 discount per ArchaeoAdventures Tour they have participated on. (i.e. Went on 2 ArchaeoAdventures Tours. Received $100 off the next tour.)

Tipping:

Tipping is a common cultural practice throughout the entire Middle East and North Africa. It’s a cultural practice throughout the region to tip small amounts for a variety of services. On your travels, notice the locals tipping each other for everything from opening a tomb to helping with carrying a fridge up flights of stairs. It’s an exchange of resources, a way to connect with a local community, and a way to show gratitude. Tipping is usually small amounts of money, but it’s deeply appreciated by the individual – more for what it symbolizes. For your Egypt Tour we have provided the following tipping guidelines. What you tip though is at your discretion. These are guidelines of rates if you were happy with the service provided. Tips can be given in USD, Euros or local currency.

Note: To simplify the tipping process, ArchaeoAdventures Tours takes care of the tipping for all the small services – hotel staff, waiters, drivers, carriage drivers. And we leave the tipping for our main guide and boat staff to the traveler’s discretion.

Tips (amounts below are per person):

  • Expert Egyptology Guide: $10/day for a great job
  • Boat crew: $12/day for entire boat crew, can be given at the end. Usually the captain collects all the tips.

Can you enjoy traveling in a developing nation? Egypt is a developing nation that has been steadily moving through a fast period of growth and change. It’s an exciting and fascinating time to experience Egypt. As a developing nation many services, systems and levels of environmental cleanliness are not the same as they are in Europe and the States. While exploring the country you will see pollution, poverty, overcrowded cities, and sadly malnourished people and animals. You will also see an Egypt working hard toward finding its way to solutions for its economic, social and political challenges. And you will meet welcoming Egyptians who are thrilled to share their country with you.

This trip requires moderate activity level – sustained walking for 2-3 hours over rough terrain, cobblestone, hills, sand and in the heat unassisted. Though there will be places to take short breaks. A number of days we begin before sunrise to beat the crowds to sites. This trip is not appropriate for travelers using walkers, wheelchairs, other mobility aids, or who cannot stand on their feet for 2-3 hours while visiting sites and walking around museums. Our tours often involve a number of hours outside in hot temperatures (Egypt can get hot, well into the 90s Fahrenheit).

If you do not think you’ll be able to meet this level of activity requirement, or you have any questions or concerns please email our helpful staff at [email protected]

We run low impact, eco-friendly, sustainable tours. We leave no traces behind, reduce plastic use and leave as small a foot print as possible with our tours. And we ask our travelers to join us in this effort – contributing to the efforts of protection of the local land, its people, wildlife and culture. All our local guides and staff are properly employed, licensed and properly equipped and trained. We utilized local products and focus on economic benefits to local communities, as well as always considering and minimize the negative impact our tours have on the land and local communities. 

We are growing our efforts to reduce plastic water bottle use, working with our in-country teams to find creative ways to explore countries sustainably and with as little plastic waste as possible. This is an on-going process and easier to implement in some countries compared to others due to logistic, single-use plastic water bottle alternatives and local education around recycling and reducing plastic waste. 

Over the next 5 years you will see our tours become ever increasingly plastic-waste free. We look forward to helping you travel and explore the region in a sustainable, plastic-free style. We are currently working on reducing plastic on this tour – look for coming announcements on ways you can help us reduce plastic waste.Our tours often involve a number of hours outside in hot temperatures (Egypt can get hot, well into the 90s Fahrenheit.)

There are a few ways you can help make this tour sustainable and eco-friendly:

  • Bring a reusable water bottle and don’t buy one-time-use plastic water bottles. (We will provide a large jug of clean, purified water for you to fill your bottles from).
  • Throw away all trash in properly designated trash bins.
  • Recycle where we are able to.

Note: This tour requires all travelers to bring a reusable water bottle or hydration system.

We place the safety of our travelers and staff as our top priority. We are continuously in close contact with our knowledgeable on-the-ground staff, network of in-country partners and the US State Department. We update our site with the most current safety situation. If at any time safety becomes an issue we will alter the trip itinerary or, if absolutely necessary, cancel, post-pone a trip, or end a tour early. Our local guides and tour director will be closely monitoring the situation while the tours are in-progress to ensure that every tour is safe, though currently we do not anticipate any need to change the itinerary of our upcoming tours.

Visas are easily obtained at airport at the time of entry and are valid for one month. We recommend travelers bring the appropriate amount of cash in their home currency.

There are ATMs at the airport, but these machines can’t always be counted on to be functioning. The price varies depending on your country. Check with your home country’s state department website for the latest visa rates. Do not buy your visa ahead of time, its easiest to purchase it on arrival at the airport and costs $25 USD. Bring the exact amount in USD.
