What to bring on a trip to Egypt?
bla blal bla 
I am woman, what should I wear in Egypt?
Generally; no restrictions for women clothing as there is a good scale of Egyptian women wearing the same Western style. During the sightseeing trips; especially for summer timing; we recommend cotton t-shirts (3/4 or long sleeves), we don't really recommend short or cap sleeves, mainly for sunny summer days. Jeans; capris, skirts all are good to go. Inside the Islamic, Coptic area you might need to put on long sleeves; for the Mosques; you might get a catchy colored cotton scarf to cover most of your hair...
If you are inside the hotel or on board cruise, then you are able to put on tank tops or shorts. 

 
 
Is it better to Nile cruise or land arrangement from Aswan to Luxor?
Well, let us agree that each choice has its own privileges; that we are going to state in brief:
For the Nile Cruise; it is considered a lifetime experience where you spend at least 3 nights on board from Aswan to Luxor or vice versa, it will take you while sailing on the mighty Nile with a magnificent view of palm planted area surrounding both sides. You can always enjoy sun deck relaxation time; an enjoyable Nubian show is usually performed on your last night spent on board.
One more piece of info. that we can never escape; all meals on board are included (Breakfast, lunch & dinner), starting with lunch & ending with breakfast. Also, it is good to know that Nile cruise saves transportation from Kom Ombo, Edfu & Esna to reach Luxor and vice versa.
Stating a fact; cruise sails through fixed sailing dates, set number of nights as well (3, 4, 5 & 7 nights, available in different categories starting with simple up to ultra-deluxe ones), providing stopovers for sightseeing spots in each destination.
 
As for land arrangements; it provides you with more time to spend in each destination, more spots, optional tours to enjoy. Between Luxor & Aswan and vice versa; there is more than an option to get transported like sitting train or air-conditioned private transfers.
 
Which option do we recommend?
Your travel consultant will discuss options with you and advise the best; based on your dream about the booked trip, your flight timing & how long your stay is.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
   
 
  
What is the single supplement?
It is an extra that you might need to pay on the top of your package rate for getting private room at hotel or cabin on board cruise & sleeper train

If you are a SOLO traveler; the price of your package will be based on single arrangements costs; like private arrival and departure transfers, day tours, the cost of Egyptology guide and so on.

In case you are joining a group tour and you prefer privacy; you will be paying additional only for the accommodation to enjoy single room or cabin.  
Is it safe to visit Egypt?
