required to be valid for not less than six months prior to your arrival date. Visa and health requirements & regulation are subject
to updates without any prior notes. We highly recommend that you verify those arrangements quite a time prior to your departure.
Hotel Accommodation, check in, check out time, meals, special requests
Please go through your tour voucher & confirmation letter carefully to check your room type. Most probably; accommodation is based on standard rooms/double
or twin share including private facilities (safety box, bathroom…etc.). For a different room type like an upgrade to Nile View, Pyramids, or Sea View room;
connected doors, that requires extra payment & depends on availability by the time of booking.
For nonsmoking / smoking / upper floor rooms, we consider that as a special request to be forwarded to your chosen hotel/cruise.
Yet; there is no guarantee it will be fulfilled.
Twin / double share room is quite enough to hold either two separate beds (twin) or one large bed (large enough for two adults).
For the triple rooms: the vast majority of the hotels in Egypt is based on a double + extra bed, it has nothing to do with room size.
Would like to drag your attention that on board sleeper train there no triple cabins (either single or double).
When you have an accommodation plan based on triple occupancy; will charge you for double + single cabins only for the sleeper train tickets
(supplement to be added to the top of the rate).
As for single rooms, good for 1 person, single bed, with an extra charge.
Check in / Check Out Times at hotels
In general; check in due time is 02 pm and check-out is 12:00 noontime. For guaranteed early check-in or late check-out; there will be an extra charge as per hotel
policy (that might vary from one hotel to another).
In case you will be arriving later than 2 pm, please make sure to inform your travel consultant as to keep your room secured.
Meals at hotels:
On most of our offered tours; we create the itinerary based on bed & breakfast (breakfast meal starting next day to your arrival).
Except for some resorts on the coast of Red Sea (included meals are breakfast and dinner most of the time), as well as the Nile Cruise
which offers full board meal plan (Breakfast, lunch & dinner). Speaking of which; if you are allergic to a specific sort of food, nuts; make sure to notify us as to
