Seasonality and Weather
This tour is offered throughout the year, the most popular time being spring, late fall and winter when temperatures are much more comfortable than the period May-Sept. This is a popular Christmas destination and early booking for this time is essential.
Transport and Travel Conditions
Over two weeks we travel by bus, felucca sailboat, luxury cruise boat, horse carriage, plane, donkey, and camel. Distances covered are not great and roads are good. The tour is not strenuous though it is busy; you must be steady on your feet and be able to endure some heat and some extensive archaeological sites.
Hotel accommodation used on tour is on average, 4-star (some 5-star). Most properties have outdoor swimming pools. Single rooms are limited and possibly smaller than twins. The cruise vessel is very comfortable with full air-conditioning, twin-berth, outside cabins with en suite bath / toilet.
